I'm thinking of becoming a life coach - can you offer any advice?
In life coaching, assistance is freely given from the heart in response to the request for help. It does not count the fee gained or the cost spent to assist others. It is something apart from the cut and thrust of business and careers.
My advice to you is that if you have heard the call to love and to care, then have as little as possible to do with money in regard to your life coaching activities. Take only what is strictly necessary and earn the rest from other activities unrelated to life coaching. That way your practice will not be compromised by financial considerations and you will be available to coach the broad cross-section of the human family. Through such passionate, committed and generous coaching the voice in your head will fade and your heart will open to the world.
