More and more people today are evaluating the prospect of becoming a Professional Coach. What is the lure about this profession that has thousands of people turning their backs on their “secure” careers to take the plunge into the unknown? Here are a few “good to knows”:
1. Leverage Experience – coaching is not about simply learning how to coach and forgetting all the experience, knowledge and wisdom life has taught you. Great coaches are also teachers who can share this information in a way that opens doors of opportunity for their clients.
2. Pick Your Niche – coaching is probably the only profession whereby you can essentially select whatever niche you want. Obviously this is going to be somewhat influenced by what you want to leverage from your past but the candidacy for coaching is enormous.
