Let me talk briefly about Life Coaching.
Life coaches work with clients either in face to face meetings or via phone or online medium of coaching.
This means you can coach clients from all over the world. You can also be located anywhere in the world and take your Coaching business with you as you travel. You do not need any formal office and you are not tied down by any fixed work schedule.
Life coaching is an incredibly flexible and rewarding career depends how you market yourself to your prospective clients.
As a life coach you will have to work with people on their range of issues.
No matter what life coaching niche you choose you will most likely be working with clients on some of the following issues:
* seeking meaning & life purpose
* work-life balance issues
* stress & overwhelm
* transformation and new beginnings
* personal & professional challenges
Life coaching involves the coach and the client and the relationship between the two of them, giving all the power to the client. It is believed that one knows the answers to every single question or problem he or she may be facing in his or her life, though the answers may be hidden or concealed.
The aim of life coaching is to help people break their negative belief patterns, act more decisively, and set clear goals towards achieving what they want from life.
