Are you over 40 and have you achieved a satisfying level of achievement in your career?
Life Coaching just could be your next career calling. If you are ready for a new challenge professionally, you’ve always wanted to own your own business, and if you’re the person people “seek out” for help and support, or for a shoulder to lean on, you’re probably already “coaching” at a certain level. And the chances are you already know a great deal about being a good coach. Life coaching may be the perfect fit for your next career.
For many people over 40, who have achieved a satisfying level of achievement in a corporate setting, they recognize a passion within themselves to do something more to benefit of the lives of others and enjoy greater freedom in their career. Climbing the corporate ladder may not be for everyone who still has a lot of ambition to challenge himself or herself personally in a career that will make a difference in the lives of other people directly. There are many career opportunities to choose from for a second career. Life coaching happens to be one of the fastest growing career opportunities for accomplished individuals today.
One of the rewards, as well as being one of the great challenges in becoming a life coach, is that of also being a self-employed businessperson. Yes, there are some companies (very few) that hire coaches. Generally speaking, life coaching is a solo profession… and this is where you find the true opportunity.
There is no other business, home-based or otherwise, that offers the maximum amount of benefits (personal independence, professional satisfaction, financial reward) for the minimum amount of investment (time, money, effort). It frankly doesn’t get any easier than this.
Coaching is a professional service providing clients with feedback, insights, and guidance from an outside vantage point. The profession of coaching is similar to the practice of a physician, attorney, or psychologist. The major difference is that coaching is an on-going collaborative partnership built on taking action.
In this powerful alliance, clients find themselves:
- Doing more than they would on their own.
- Taking themselves more seriously.
- Creating momentum and consistency.
- Taking more effective and focused actions.
- Becoming more balanced and fulfilled.
People look for life coaching when they are making a career transition, starting a new business, feeling dissatisfied, re-evaluating life choices, or simply looking for personal and professional breakthroughs.
Coaching is action-oriented. It’s also about moving forward, not dwelling on the past. It doesn’t matter how clients got where they are or who is to “blame” for how they turned out. Coaching is about where an individual is right now and where they would like to be.
With a coach as their guide, clients are able to define their dreams, recognize what’s holding them back, and move forward with great momentum and clarity of vision.
You may be saying, “I know I could be good at this and I’m convinced I can be a great coach one day. But how do I get there from where I am now?”
