I am interested in hiring a life coach. I am in a place where now I have time to devote to starting a new endeavor (like my own business), but need help with ideas, how to get things off the ground, focus on getting there, etc. I have talked to a few people, but they seem mostly connected with the personal aspects of the business, like how I as an individual could do something to improve the business. I think that is great, but right now I think that is a little advanced for where I am. I need someone that is going to say "Ok here you go, here's what you need to consider, here's who you might need to go talk to if you want to incorporate, here's a few major laws in the field you are going into, have you thought about X,Y and Z aspects". I have a rough idea of what I would like to do (there are a few different options), but I haven't found anyone who knows much specifically about those fields. I am leary to try one of those online "find you a life coach" type websites so I was wondering how others have found life coaches. Thanks for any input!
I think a life coach sounds like a fantastic idea. However, be forewarned that it DOES cost quite a bit of money and it's only useful for certain people. Essentially, if you're the type of person that needs a bit of motivation (and you have the money to spare), I say go for it! It sounds like it would be good for you
. Now, the reason I'm on here so late is because I, too, am looking for a life coach. I happened to stumble upon this thread while looking for life coach advice and figured that this might be useful.
Now, I wonder -- do you folks think a life coach would be right for me? I'm trying to figure out what I want to do with my life (business/entrepreneur-wise), but I'm afraid of spending the pretty penny. I mean, I understand why it's so expensive -- life coaches (which I'm guessing is THEIR sole business) got to eat too. Essentially, what I'm asking is what TYPE of person should get life coaching? I wanna know if it's worth it for me. I wonder if these contractors have a human resource management. Hmm. Thanks, folks!
