Must Do’s & Red Flags When Looking for a Life Coach
“Life Coaching is YOUR opportunity to take your life from good to GREAT!” I get asked all the time - so what is a Life Coach anyway? Being a Real-Life Coach is an incredible way that I have been able to live out my passion for helping others overcome their personal battles and obstacles to create a real-life they absolutely love. Each person is different and has different goals - so picking the right Life Coach for you is something very personal.
Number 1, PLEASE do your RESEARCH! Even if you are looking into me as your coach (side-note: if you have a coach that tells you that you don’t need to do research - RUN!) Here are a few things that you should look for when researching a Life Coach and some red flags to watch out for. Check out the video for these tips and my real-life example of coaching gone horribly wrong. Real-Life: I DIDN’T do my proper research when hiring a coach over a year ago and it bit me in the butt big time! Not only did it cost me money, but also time, energy and aggravation. Looking back - there were some HUGE red flags that I missed and I don’t want you to make the same mistakes that I did. The Life Coaching industry is filled with people that truly care about helping others…. and then there are people that are just in it for the money. Don’t get taken advantage of by these people when you are at your most vulnerable and wanting to make a change in life. Above all else - you need to “vibe” with your coach and their coaching style. Every coach is different and has different methods, that’s why it’s so important to make sure you feel that you “safe” with this person. A coach is there to push you out of your comfort zone, but is also there to be your biggest cheerleader and let you know that YOU CAN DO THIS! Let me know your thoughts. xo Renea
