Becoming a Life Coach

Life coaches are in high demand these days, especially by the stars in Hollywood! Check out what it takes for you to become a life coach when you grow up.

Get a Life... Coach

So what's a life coach and what does he/she do? Well, it's pretty simple - while a basketball coach trains you on your b-ball skills, a life coach gives you advice about your life, tries to figure out what you want and helps you achieve those goals. If your goal is to get in shape, then a life coach encourages you to get off your butt, get to the gym, and hire a personal fitness trainer and nutrionist to help you eat healthier meals. Or, if you dream about traveling around the world but don't have enough money, a life coach will dish out financial advice, give you suggestions on how to save and invest your money, or even help you look for a better-paying job! It's like having your own personal coach!

The Ups and Downs of the Job

To be a good, successful life coach, you have to like talking to people, giving them advice and helping them succeed in life. You'll most likely be self-employed and work one-on-one with clients to help them move in the right direction. Life coaching is not the same thing as therapy. They don't make their clients lie down on big, leather couches to talk about their problems. Unfortunately, a lot of people may still mistake you for a shrink, but working with a diverse group of people and making a difference in their lives more than makes up for it! No training or degree is required for the average life coach, but it's a good idea to attend a coaching school that's accredited by the International Coach Federation (ICF), a world-wide organization that sets the standards of the coaching profession and provides certification.

How Much $$$ Do Life Coaches Make?

About 10 to 20 percent of life coaches make six-figure salaries! But the average part-time coach earns around $25,000, while full-time coaches make around $85,000.

    Tell that girl that she looks so horrible she makes roadkill look beautiful. Clap your hands really loud with nobody looking and then say "HEY WHY'D YOU HIT ME?" (Don't thank me thank Diary of a Wimpy Kid) Tell someone. Tell a teacher or somebody Or ignore that excuse for a person and get on with your life without her I mean, it.
