Hiring a life coach is an investment. Are you ready to make an investment in yourself?
When I first meet a client, it's usually during a free coaching session. Spending 30 minutes asking a lot of questions, I quickly discover what the client is trying to achieve and if hiring me is the right decision. Sometimes when I feel that I am not the right person for the job, I will refer a client to someone else whom I believe can help them better than me. I always put the clients needs first and sometimes I need to turn down a client because they are not ready or when I don't feel qualified for their particular situation.
What is a life coach?
A life coach is someone who asks you a lot of relevant questions to help you understand why things are not going your way, to help you understand your next steps, to help clarify what's missing, someone who knows which buttons to push to get you excited about your dreams and goals, to help you draw a clear map and help you go from where you are now to where you wish to be, someone who can help you become a better version of yourself.
A life coach should be able to help you in all areas of life: financially, spiritually, physically, mentally, business, career, relationships, friendships, family etc.
A life coach is someone you hire when you feel that you are not experiencing the life you believe you were born to live, when you feel unaccomplished, when things don't go the way you want them to, when your outcome is not reflecting your efforts. In short, you hire a life coach when you want to go to your next level in life, whatever that may be.
For you the next level is somewhat unknown, but a good coach will quickly change that unknown into a clear path. You are looking for someone who has a lot of experience, someone who achieved what you are trying to achieve or someone who helped other achieve what your are trying to achieve.
How do you know if a coach is a good fit for you and what you're trying to achieve?
First of all when working with a coach you should be able to share your truth and be brutally honest about everything thats is going on in your life. If for some reason you don't feel comfortable to share, it might reveal that you are not ready to hire a coach. You should always first look in the mirror and be honest with yourself. Being coachable is being able to share your deepest truth, to answer all questions honestly, to accept advise, to follow, to do the work, to be held accountable, to feel uncomfortable, to stretch yourself. A coach should make you feel that you are challenged and that can sometimes make you feel uncomfortable during a session. But remember, the coach is only there to help you become a better version of yourself and that means you might need to go through some pain and struggle.
The best way to know if a coach is a good fit is to do a couple of coaching sessions, and then do the homework assignments, be held accountable and start looking at your results. If you see that you are not improving, if you feel bored during a session and unchallenged, if you feel unmotivated to continue than by all means you're working with the wrong coach.
