Ever wonder how to get started with a coaching business?
Over ten years ago, I decided to start my coaching business. I always knew I wanted to be an entrepreneur, but the decision to become one led me down a twisty road of self discovery, never ending learning, and constant evolution.
One of the most defining decisions I made in my entrepreneurial journey was to become a coach so I will kick this series off with coaching!
Why become a coach?
Most people who become coaches do so because they have a burning desire to help impact the live of others.Many coaches are overcomes of trials and/or have experiences during their lifetime such as divorce, weight loss, parenting that they which to help others get past.
Most coaches will tell you that they were always the person that people came to for advice or shared personal information with, all their lives.
For the coach, coaching allows you to fulfill your purpose at a deep level.
Do you need training to become a coach?
Coaching is a non-regulated industry which is what makes it easy for many to say they are coaches with no training or skill in client transformation.
You do not have to be certified to be a coach however, I suggest that you do so if this is an avenue you are considering.
Training helps prepare you by teaching you the skills necessary to help your clients move forward.
Remember, although coaching is not regulated there are things you will learn during training that will give the confidence to begin telling the world that you are a coach. Choose a coach training program that not only teaches you how to coach but also, how to launch your coaching business.
Next, you need to choose a niche that you will specialize in.There are way more coaches now than there were when I started eleven years ago, you need to stand out from the crowd.
From there you need to tell the world you are a coach! Begin offering free mini coaching sessions so that you can gain confidence and clarity.
Create at least one coaching package that includes a way for people to work with you over the next one month, two months, three months, etc. Working with you longer will allow clients to have greater transformation.
And finally, hire a coach to help you get sorted out.I spent at least five years spinning in circles when I could have just hired a coach and been on my way to earning more sooner.
