So you’ve conquered your life, and you’ve got the battle scars to prove it. How do you become a life coach? It’s true, people have more respect for people who have been through what they’re going through and made it to the other side alive. Think about it: How can I trust your marriage advice if you have never been married before? We’re not saying you have to have every experience your clients have. We’re saying it’s easier if you choose a focus area that’s close to your heart. It will make you an excellent life coach if you do.
What You Need to Know About Becoming a Life Coach
Some people grow up with a hunger to help others. Doctors, nurses, firefighters, social workers — they all have one thing in common: to help their fellow humans.

If you missed the opportunity, for whatever reason, to land a job where you can spend your time helping others, don’t worry. It’s never too late! You can still become a life coach. Life coaches come in all ages and from all walks of life.
