You truly own your life, when you are the master of your time; when your time is not driven by demands of your job, your employer, your 9 to 5 job. This means that you have to have a source of income that allows you the freedom to work at YOUR pace. This doesn't mean you won't face external demands on your time. You will. But YOU will have the power to make all the decisions about your time instead of having a boss to answer to and who makes these decisions for you directly or indirectly.
And the profession of Life Coach allows you exactly this kind of freedom. Plus, it is so much more fulfilling and rewarding to help others transform their lives for the better.
