Think back to the time when you first thought about becoming a Life Coach. From my experience of training 100's of people to become life coaches:
Most people who train to become life coaches never get off the ground. Those who do, have to be satisfied with the handful of friends and acquaintances who want to be coached (I call them pity clients - clients who become your clients out of a sense of pity or obligation).
You might think it's a harsh thing to say and I say this only to jolt you and to get you reconnected with your purpose.
Ask yourself, is your purpose truly fulfilled by such handful of clients?
Here's what I have also seen happen, 90% of the people who become life coaches have completely given up on their pursuit of life coaching and the remaining 10% barely manage to work with few clients once in a while.
Why is it, that most life coaches are unable to achieve their purpose?
It is because they fail to realize that while life coaching is a noble profession, you still need to treat it as a profession and as a business. Most life coaches are not trained on business.You need to become not just an expert at your skills, but you need to become a Business Owner.
How is a being a Business Owner different?
As a business owner you work "ON THE BUSINESS" and NOT just "In the business". Being a coach and working with your clients is working "in the business". As a business owner you become a strategist.
What this means is that you work on the vision of your business, the layout and landscape of your business, the design of your business. Just like an architect works on and prepares a blueprint of his beautiful structure and then hands it off to the developer, similarly as a Business Owner you work on and prepare the blueprint of your business and hand it off to a competent team to build it and run it.
