Blueprint to Success as a BALM Professional

Have you ever thought of becoming a life coach?

 

If so, then you might be one of the few who also had big questions looming over their heads. Can life coaching help you reach not only your personal goals but also and most especially your financial goals?

The answer is yes, but not as simple as you may think. Taking on a new career is a life-changing decision and you want to be sure that the life coaching program you are taking is one that provides the support you need throughout your practice. It should also include and provide support in the business development area.

A lot of people believe that taking the plunge, that is, taking life coaching or becoming a specialist means that you have to quit your day job to dive fully into the practice. You don’t have to do that immediately. Life coaching can be done on the side. No one develops a full practice overnight. It can take years or you can develop it more rapidly as a full-time pursuit and that makes it the perfect career shift you can pursue whether you have another job or not.

Life coaching is a powerful and purposeful career path. It requires you to learn how to meet clients where they currently are and help them access their wisdom to reach their goals. Life coaches should have the ability to ask powerful questions, to listen deeply, reflect what they hear back to the client, and empowers the client to move forward on a variety of options that may not have been previously available to them.

It’s not all about branding, although being associated with a program that has already built their brand over time is helpful. Many life coaches got stuck in the branding and building a following that they do not spend as much time in the practice of their craft. Life coaching is a craft which takes practice and proper education.

In general, you need foundational know-how before you can start coaching. But for more specialized life coaching like recovery from substance use disorder, you need more than the basic life coaching knowledge. You need to take a specialty course.

What Our Coaches Say about Being a BALM Family Recovery Life Coach

Before taking on a specialty life coaching course, you need to ask some questions.

  • Does it offer multiple approaches and instructors so you get diverse concepts?
  • What kind of learning approach does it offer? Live? Blended learning?
  • Does it have a community?
  • Does it provide business development tools to help you with the business side of coaching?

These questions will help you get the best life coaching course.
