How to Choose The Best Life Coach Certification
Congratulations on your own healing and transformation and for deciding to pay it forward by helping others as a coach!
Choosing a life coach certification can be a daunting task, but there are a few key things to consider as you make your decision. First, it's important to note that you don't actually need a certification in order to charge for coaching.
What you really need is a skillset to get results for your clients and the actual clients to coach.
Unfortunately, many coaching schools don't actually teach these things. Instead, they often focus on teaching you how to use your "soft skills," which you may already be good at, or on a specific modality, which is a toolkit rather than a skillset. This can leave you feeling unprepared to work with real, paying clients, who often have different standards and expectations than your peers or pro-bono clients.
In fact, in the $16 billion coaching industry, 67% of coaches close their businesses within a year of completing a coaching certification, and only 10% of those remaining coaches make $30 per year. To be part of the rare 1% who achieve six-figures, you need to think and act differently.
So, what can you do to increase your chances of success as a coach?
I recommend taking the following three steps:
Package your existing skillset, talents, and intuitive gifts into an offer that your clients can't refuse.
Start working with real, high-paying clients as soon as possible. This will help you to gain valuable experience and build your confidence.
Investigate what's behind the scenes of any successful coaching business. Successful coaches don't just rely on ads, funnels, and social media to attract clients. They also have a strong understanding of how to create and deliver high-quality coaching programs that deliver real results.
If you're ready to make 2023 your most fulfilling and profitable year yet, watch the testimonials and case studies on my website to get inspired. I work with clients from all walks of life, including those transitioning from 9-5 jobs, feeling stuck in academia, and stay-at-home moms looking to start an easy online business.
Let's work together to help you achieve your coaching goals!
Dear client Dr. Sofia Beloka came to me as a fitness coach, charing $100/hr and volunteering, and in the next 2 years she had launched her own academy, became a high performance and transformational coach and healer, and is now charging $100,000 for her private coaching programs, running retreats in Greece and teaching her students in a 5-figure group program. She also wrote and published a book and started speaking on international stages.
Here is Maria Nebres, an amazing leader and a graduate of my Advanced Coaches and Healers Business program. As a newbie coach she signed up several $20,000 clients and made six figures in 3 months and then went on to close a $100,000 corporate coaching deal on the top of that! All, doing heart-centered authentic transformational work, healing and implementing my simple business strategies, no adds or funnels involved.
And here is Emma Tynan - a passionate leader and a coach, and also a busy mom and wife. She came after taking an 18-month break, starting again and rebuilding herself and her business. She is now in the middle of creating her 7-figure coaching empire, coaching 5-figure private clients and groups.
