The Business of Life Coaching

Jan 2015Odds are you know a Life Coach or an Executive Coach. The coaching industry, which began in the mid 90s, is now booming. Today there are more than 50,000 coaches around the world, and you can find a Life Coach or Executive Coach to help you with just about any goal you can think of. The question for many thinking about becoming a coach is how do people earn a living in this profession?

The Certified Coaches Federation, owned by the Healthy Wealthy and Wise® Corporation, has certified over 10,000 coaches since 2006 and is considered one of the most popular Life Coach Training & Certification organizations in the world today. With over 100 locations in Canada, the United States, Brazil, and Europe, the Certified Coaches Federation has earned a reputation for taking the “clutter” out of Life Coach Certification.

Derrick Sweet, author of several selfimprovement books, including Get The Most Out Of Life (endorsed by Dr. Wayne Dyer), is the Founder of the Certified Coaches Federation. “When we first started teaching Life Coach and Executive Coach training,” said Sweet, “ the industry was dominated by coach training schools that offered courses that were several weeks, or even several months long, at a cost of anywhere between $5,000.00-$40,000.00.

We thought this was crazy because the #1 criteria to qualify to become a coach isn’t any course…it’s your real life experience.” A successful coach offers his or her clients the simplest path, and the clearest advice, which is always free of non-essential information…only using what is helpful and what is necessary, nothing more. In 2004 the Certified Coaches Federation created a two day intensive course that could teach new and seasoned coaches how to help their clients go from point A to point B with the fewest steps.

The Certified Coaches Federation teaches coaches how language impacts perspective and how perspective determines success or failure in achieving our goals. In the last ten years neuroscience has revealed how our thoughts, feelings, beliefs, and expectations play a role in our likelihood of achieving our goals.

Cognitive Reflex Conditioning® is a four step process that teaches coaches how to condition their thoughts, feelings, beliefs, and expectations to become aligned with their intentions, and, in the process, create more of a sense of flow and momentum as they work toward achieving their goals. Today, one of the reasons why so many coaches are choosing the Certified Coaches Federation for their coach training is because Cognitive Reflex Conditioning® training is only offered by this innovative program.

Can anyone earn a living as a coach? No. In order to earn a good living a coach must offer a marketable solution and have years of experience and an expertise to help people achieve their goals. The challenge all coaches have is attracting and keeping clients, and predicting their cash flow.

This is why the Certified Coaches Federation includes a free life-time continuing education membership for all graduates who complete their course, as well as an opportunity to work, as one of their coaches, with the Healthy Wealthy and Wise® Corporation.

Coaching can be a very satisfying career helping people get out of their own way and overcome their own roadblocks to success, and now, with the Healthy Wealthy and Wise® Coaching Program coaches can also earn a solid income.

Certified Coaches Federation will be holding certification courses in New York on February 28th and March 1st. To learn more about becoming a Certified Coach visit or call 866-455-2155.
