How To Become A Life Coach — Start A Solo Business

1. Read Books On Communication

You can have all of the world’s wisdom and still not be able to convince someone if you do not know how to communicate effectively.

  • How To Make Friends And Influence People by Dale Carnegie
  • Just Listen: Discover the Secret to Getting Through to Absolutely Anyone by Mark Goulston
  • Words That Work by Dr. Frank Luntz

2. Choose Your Niche

The typical, comical view of a life coach is not too different from what’s shown in HBO’s Silicon Valley . Gavin Belson’s coach, Denpok, gives him generic, mambo-jumbo advice. That suddenly makes the show’s antagonist feel good.

  • What am I good at?
  • Where have I developed myself professionally and personally?
  • What self and external advice has helped me succeed in life?
  • What coaching can I offer that my clients will want to undertake?

3. Complete A Life Coach Certification Program

A certification course will help you strengthen your ethos with your clients. This will also put you into the perspective of what a life coach’s full range of responsibilities is.

4. Begin Marketing Your Brand And Yourself

Your words, actions, and experiences will form your brand as a life coach. You can always learn about how to become a life coach, but won’t actually succeed without clientele.

5. Consider Investing In A Paid Video Calling Software

Given the year that 2020 was, people have become very comfortable with the idea of online conversations and video calling software.

  • Microsoft Teams
  • Google Enterprise
  • Zoom (Pro & Above)

6. Consider Learning A Planning And Productivity Software

Calendar and planning software will keep you organized. You can’t learn how to become a life coach if your life is all over the place.

7. Teach New Skills And Add Value To Your Clients

Non-tangible skills and solving issues are great. However, clients will most definitely appreciate it if you add visible skills to their lives as well.
