How do I start a life coaching business without any coach training? Is it even possible? Many will probably say no, a few may say yes. But I would say it is possible. Let us find out how.
The short answer is Yes! The long answer is; it is possible to be a life coach and own a coaching business because the coaching field is unregulated; there are no federal or state requirements to be credentialed or trained as a life coach. However, if you want to set yourself apart in the industry, remain relevant and equipped with the proper coaching skills, coach training, and possibly becoming certified may help you achieve that. Something to think about down the road.
The truth is anyone with interpersonal relations skills and the ability to help others can call themselves a life coach because of the current regulation of coaching practices. There are several individuals out there without any coach training or certification who identify as life coaches, career coaches, and so on. Some of these individuals have prior work experiences or educational backgrounds in psychology, business, human resources, excelling in their life coaching businesses. You can do the same too.
