4 Essential Steps to Becoming a Life Coach
Guest Post by Coach Jordan
There are many steps to becoming a life coach and they are all equally important, but some more so than others! I’m sure you have thought about taking a class, have read tons of books, or considered setting up a website. But there are also some other, not as obvious, steps to becoming a life coach that will hugely benefit you and your business.
Here are my top 4 essential steps to becoming a successful Life Coach!
Get a Coach!
I truly feel it’s important to have a coach in order to be a successful coach. In Mentor Masterclass I have benefited immensely from having a coaching partner. Whether she coaches me about my business, my health or my relationships, I am always learning something new from her.
By having a life coach for yourself, you also get the opportunity to learn and experience how a client would feel when being coached.
Work for Free!
The steps to becoming a life coach would not be complete without doing some coaching for free…and a lot of it! One of the most important things I have learned while studying to become a Life Coach with Coach Jey is offering your services to friends and/or coworkers is a great way to practice!
I also think it’s important to work with strangers to get used to coaching people who are noe already close to you. Find networking groups and offer a free session to people in the group, they may even turn into paying clients!
Create a business plan!
A fellow coach once told me this. Whether it is a professional business plan that is pages long or a paragraph in your journal, create a business plan today! A business plan help you to envision what your business will be like once it is up and running and bringing in clients.
Try writing down what you want for your business in 3 months, 6 months, 9 moths and a year. Include how much money you will be bringing in and how many clients you will have. Be specific, the more specific, the better!
And the most important step to becoming a life coach…
Find a network of supporters
Find fellow coaches, fellow small business owners, fellow bloggers and join a community. The Mentor Masterclass community is a great place for anyone training to be a coach because it offers support from others who are going through the same things and working towards the same goals.
Having this group of girls to share with, learn from, and grow with has been a huge part of my training that I highly recommend for anyone looking to become a Life Coach.
I hope these 4 essential steps to becoming a life coach have inspired you to take action on your own journey to becoming a life coach. Choose one of these steps and get started on it this week, then come back and post a comment letting me know how it went…I’d love to hear from you!
