Clarify what motivates you to become a coach

What is it that brings you to coaching? What do you expect to get out of it?

What type of coach do you want to be? What niches are you interested in?

Beyond the life coaching skill set that you’ll learn in the training program you choose, there are a number of areas related to professional development in which you will need to become a competent professional coach.

Make sure that the training program that you choose has a module on The Business of Coaching, so that you can acquire the needed information and the awareness about what is required to start up your coaching business and thrive as a coach.

When setting up your coaching business you need to keep in mind that there are a lot of different aspect to consider to begin:

  • how to register your business in your country
  • creating a website with the  useful and appropriate content to meet your clients’ needs
  • shaping and describing the coaching program that you are going to offer
  • going from ‘consumer’ to ‘creator’ on Social Media and opening your business social media pages
  • creating a first list of prospect clients to contact and offer your services
  • being clear on how much and how long do you want to work (in a week, in a month, in a year)
  • being comfortable in the unknown, which means be ready to deal with the unexpected by finding solution and not focus on problems.

According to the ICF (International Coaching Federation, the largest coaching organization in the world), 89% of coach practitioners receive training that was accredited or approved by a professional coaching organization.

While you are in a training program to become a certified life coach, it can certainly be helpful to start planning how to launch your business. That is why we suggest that you choose a school that gives you the training and shares with you the expertise needed to start up your new coaching activity. Our school offers to our members students effective training on how to use Social Media for your coaching activity, how to set up your webpage and how to manage the needed SEO activities to be seen in the web and in the coaching world.

We also allow our students to become aware that when you’re a certified coach with an ICF program, you’re bound by the ICF ethical guidelines.Our training is focused on that and on how to create your ethical approach to marketing that is fully aligned with the ICF requirements and Code of Ethic.

Before you enroll in a training program, make sure that the course is aligned and accredited by an association like the International Coach Federation, which sets industry standards for ethical coaching.

During your life coach training with our EpiCoaching Academy you learn the fundamentals of professional coaching. You’ll also learn the business of becoming a life coach and ethical aspects defined by the ICF, that you may need to be aware of in order to be successful in your practice. Becoming a certified professional coach can be an intense process, a transformational journey that allows you to access your best talents and let them shine in your life and in your profession.

You need to fulfill a certain amount of hours of training before you can earn your certification. Therefore, you’ll want to make sure your intentions and motivation are clear and grounded before you start your journey.
