3. You can control your schedule
Elements like time management are of great value because it determines when you work. It also determines when you have time for other aspects of your life, such as running errands, exercising, sleeping, and leisure activities. Since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic, people have realized that flexible schedules are an essential part of life. This is also relevant for business owners. You will find that, as a coach, you will have clients who want to meet after 5:00 pm or before 9:00 am because of other commitments such as work, sending children to school, etc. Owning your coaching business allows you to be flexible with yourself and your clients. Over time, you will naturally find a balance.
4. You have job security
The number of coaching majors is rapidly increasing. After all, this is an industry in high demand because people believe in the results that coaches provide. The Coaching Foundation reports that the number of professional coaches is increasing substantially. Yes, it does mean that the competition will be fierce. However, if you have a clear coaching field and know who your target audience is, you can be sure that you will have a successful business that will give you job security every month and for the year ahead. Mentoring can also pay off handsomely if you use a variety of revenue methods (like monthly subscriptions or one-time payments for on-demand content).
