359: Should I be a life coach‪?‬ DREAM. THINK. DO.

    • Careers

We’re answering the question, “Should YOU be a life coach?” this week.  Why?  Well, according to a recent study, almost half of employees in the US are looking for a new job or plan to soon.   Which suggests that the curious pandemic-era phenomenon known as the “Great Resignation” is continuing into 2022. Specifically, 44% of employees now consider themselves “job seekers,” according to Willis Towers Watson's 2022 Global Benefits Attitudes Survey.   Wow.  That blew me away.  How about you?  As a part of all of this, I’ve had more and more people ask me whether they should and/or could become a life coach.  So, I wanted to dig into that.  Now, I’ll be the first to say that every once and a while... I do a deep dive on a subject that might not be for everyone.  BUT this one is for more people than you might expect.
If you listen to DREAM THINK DO, I'm guessing you may have thought about it.  If you’re wanting to dream bigger, think better and do more of what you’re put on the planet to do… then… there’s a really good chance you’d like to see others do that too!  So, if you’ve had that feeling… it’s possible you’d make an amazing coach.  AND… many should become coaches… BUT… not all.
That’s why I’m doing this episode. I'm going to take you behind the scenes of the coaching industry and I'm going to be straight up with you as I answer some common questions I get about who should become a life coach, business coach or success coach.  
I’ll shoot straight with you about the industry and WHO would be a good fit... and have a chance to really make an IMPACT and... quite possibly... some serious INCOME from it.  
And.... who I’ll also share who I think shouldn't try to become a life coach too.  It’s going to be a fun… eye-opening… truth filled conversation and I can’t wait to get started.  So, let’s do this!!!

MORE ABOUT THE EPISODE:
Why are we talking about whether you should/could become a life coach… NOW? 
Well… like I said, in the introduction, LOTS of people are wanting a change. 
There are a LOT of things contributing to this… but if 44% of the workforce are now considering themselves “job seekers,” there’s a very good chance that MANY of them  are wanting to do something more meaningful.  Something that’s more true to their purpose
And if YOU are wanting more purpose from your work… there’s a chance that you’d love to help OTHER PEOPLE find more purpose and fulfillment too.  
So, one of the things that pops to some people's lists is life coaching.  
They might think about hiring their own life coach, but they might also be asking, "I wonder if I should become a life coach?"
But let’s be honest… right from the start!  Some might wonder if it's a scam or a get-rich-quick scheme?
NOTE: You can make a LOT of money as a coach but that's NOT the reason to get into it. There are a few BAD coaches out there… BUT what industry do you know that doesn't include a few bad apples who screw things up for everyone?   That's why I like to set the record straight... and try to do our part to make things right! If you wonder whether being a life coach or a success coach is legitimate:
You can now get your Masters and your Ph.D. in coaching...  NOTE: Although I don't recommend that and I'll tell you why more in a bit. BUT just the fact that you can get advanced degrees in coaching proves it's needed and that a LOT of people are seeking help! FREE TRAINING:
We have some new free training coming up... because I really do want to help people who feel called to become a life coach to keep moving forward with confidence.  
BUT I really do want to scare the wrong people away from becoming a coach... 
So let's get started!
I often get asked, “SHOULD I BECOME A LIFE COACH?”
Good question: Is becoming a life coach idea
