A career as a life coach – Is it right for me?

October 26, 2017

A career as a life coach can have many perks from gaining a high salary to making a big difference to someone’s life. If you’re thinking about going into this field of work then here’s 5 reasons why you should:

Job opportunities

There are a wide range of job opportunities within this field of work. And with more people realising the importance of a life coach, becoming stressed due to work commitments and needing some guidance in their life, these roles are in high demand. You can work one-to-one with your clients from home or start your own life coaching business.

Flexible work

Becoming a life coach is one of the most flexible careers. You will be able to work from home or visit your client whenever you choose, giving you the ability to complete your other administrative tasks when you want. Some life coaches don’t even meet their clients face to face! They conduct their sessions by telephone.

Great salary

Fancy earning up to £50,000 per year? Who wouldn’t! Life coaches are very well paid especially when you specialise in a specific niche such as relationships, health and wellbeing, business coaching and more! You can charge up to £60 a session, so if you want to boost your earning potential this is a great area to go in to.

It’s easy to start your own business

A life coaching business can be incredibly easy to set up compared to a traditional business, and has very low overheads. As long as you have internet and a telephone, you can get started without an office or staff. A great opportunity if you’ve always wanted to start your own business and be your own boss.

Make a difference

Making a valuable contribution to helping others to overcome challenges and achieve their goals, is very rewarding. This is one of the main reasons why people choose to go into this field. With the motivation to helping others you’ll also be able to work on yourself, developing your own skills and learning new things.
