I’m interested in the field of life coaching….any suggestions on how to kickstart this career?

I’m not even sure if what I want to be would be called a "life coach", but I’m extremely interested in helping, guiding and developing success in people’s personal lives and careers. I have a pretty extensive background in sales and sales training/education, but I don’t know how to start a business or career like this on my own. Any suggestions on how to make this career not only a reality, but a successful and lucrative lifestyle?

I chuckle at the "get a coach" response, but that is a great first step. You’d be able to narrow down what you really want to do and start moving yourself towards your goals. Not only that, you’ll start to learn more about what coaching is, how it works, and what it can offer to people.

Aside from that, coaching is a wonderful skill to hone – whether you’re in business for yourself or not. Coaching itself is a skill to be learned and developed, so start reading, taking classes, talking to people, etc. to learn more.

And, don’t feel like you are leaving behind your current skills to embark on this journey. What business owner couldn’t use a sales coach?

Best of luck to you!

    You should take classes in sociology and psychology. Stick with them and get a degree. Then you can truly help people in the way you want. Start you own business in career training, then you can also offer counseling for those who need it.References :

    Take a college course or courses majoring in Psychology, Communications I and II, and Business Administration… in addition… You can take the workshop course, "How to start your own Business", also.

    The guidance counselor at the school will be able to give you a list of courses that correspond to your career choice.References : Life
