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.

hey, i got a question, how would you get over a major mess-up, then try to act attractive, so you would still have a chance at maybe making a relationship with your crush.

Ok, so how would you tell a crush you like them without them knowing it's you?

I've been there when I was still in school. I don't personally have many friends now that I'm graduated, but that's more because the people here aren't worth being friends with. Off topic, my bad- Anyways, just try being a nice person. Sit with the other kid that's alone during lunch, find someone who needs someone to talk too, be open. I realize this can be difficult to do if you're shy, believe me, I've been there as well. Just remember that you need to stay yourself. I've lost friends because they turned out to be someone totally different than how they made themselves out to be. It's not worth it to pretend you're someone else. If it doesn't happen naturally after a little while, then you just have to keep in mind that it's your turn to put yourself out there. Remember that, "hey, I put myself out there and I made a friend, that's pretty cool." But, also remember that, "hey, I put myself out there and I didn't make a friend, that's pretty okay too." If you put yourself out there and someone doesn't accept it, then that's okay. It just means they weren't meant to be your friend and someone else will come along much better for you.
