Why Life Coaching Isn't for Everyone

Why Life Coaching Isn't for Everyone

I’ll be the first to say it: Not everyone should hire a life coach. Sure, it may seem counterproductive for me to be discouraging people from working with one, but it actually isn’t.

Why I Coach Entrepreneurs (And Why I Call Myself a Life Coach)

Why I Coach Entrepreneurs (And Why I Call Myself a Life Coach)

If you read my blog post covering the entirety of my entrepreneurial journey, then you’ll know why I became a life coach. But I wanted to further dig down and tell you all why I chose to work with entrepreneurs specifically.

Life coaches can cover a wide variety of demographics. Everything from health coaches to relationship coaches, executive coaches to accountability coaches. It’s not common to hear about a life coach for entrepreneurs. So why not consider myself a business coach? And why only work with business owners?
