Many people who work a traditional day job in a traditional office setting dream of creating a freedom-filled career that allows them to do more of what they want to do (like travel or enjoy hobbies), make a great living, and make their impact on the world. Thanks to the Internet, that’s now more possible than ever for more people than ever before.
According to a smallbiztrends.com article from April 2018, about 3.9 million Americans work from home or work remotely.
What does this mean … and more importantly, what does it mean for you if you’re seeking an opportunity to get out of the 9-to-5 grind and embrace a freedom-filled career and lifestyle?
It means it’s easier than ever to create precisely the career and lifestyle you desire!
One way a growing number of people are doing that: they’re becoming professional coaches. The coaching industry has absolutely exploded, both in terms of how many people are coaching, and how many people are seeking coaches. Why is it so popular?
First of all, people can coach and be coached from anywhere, thanks to the Internet. Also, coaches can design their business models around their unique desires, priorities, and schedules, which means you can choose whether to coach people one-on-one or in group settings.
If the idea of becoming a professional coach appeals to you, then keep reading to explore some of the benefits:
- Coaching enables you to work from any location. While some coaches still utilize an office, many other flexible work locations exist for in-person meetings. For example, some coaches choose to work from home, or to meet their clients at other locations (libraries, restaurants, shared office spaces, etc.). Plus, technology like Zoom, Skype, FaceTime or Google Hangout makes it possible for you to meet clients virtually … which means your work locations are unlimited as long as you have Internet access.
- Coaching allows you to work on your own time. One of the best things about coaching is that you can choose when to work. Perhaps you’re a parent and want the freedom to pick your kids up from school and take them to their activities. Or, maybe you want to keep a part-time job, or you have volunteer obligations and want to work around them. With coaching, that’s no problem. You can build your business around your priorities.
- Coaching allows you to work as few or as many hours as you like. Whether you want to work full-time (or more than full-time), or just part-time to earn “extra” income, you can! Coaching is flexible because you’re the business owner.
- Coaching allows you to make adjustments when you want or need to. Life is always evolving, and one of the best benefits of coaching is that it can evolve, too. You can change up your business model, your work schedule, or any other aspect of coaching based on what’s going on in your life (unlike a corporate job).
In conclusion …
When you become a holistic coach, you’re able to step outside the confines of the corporate world and enjoy the flexibility and the freedom to create a business that reflects your priorities, your values, and your desires.
