Every day I have people ask me – “Dan, can I be a coach?” And my response is always, “Are people coming to you now asking for your help and advice?” If they are, we can likely shape what you are already doing into a profitable business. If you’re a person others seek out for help and support, or for a shoulder to lean on, you’re probably already “coaching” at a certain level. And chances are you have the skills required to call yourself a coach.
Do you have what it takes to be a coach? There’s a quick way to find out…
How many of these things are already true for you?
- People seek you out for your advice. Whether it’s after church, at a Chamber of Commerce meeting or at a social event, people are always asking for your advice and opinion.
- You value personal growth. You set and accomplish your own goals in multiple areas of your life.
- You see great potential in people. And it frustrates you when they don’t exercise that potential.
- You build strong relationships easily. You relate well to others personally, in business and just in the ordinary encounters in life.
- You don’t need anyone to motivate you or schedule your time. You exercise discipline in your own life and want others to know the freedom that comes from reaching new goals.
- You recognize you’ve already been coaching – you just need a way to formalize what you’re already doing. Now you’re ready to schedule sessions and charge for your expertise.
Over the last 20 years of my own coaching, I have had hundreds of people ask me if I thought they could be a “coach.” These are the kinds of questions I have always asked in return.
If these feel right for you, the steps required to actually become a professional coach are probably closer than you think.
Coaching success requires two major elements:
- Understanding the dynamics of “coaching.”
- Understanding the principles of “business.”
We’re seeing many new coaches who have studied the dynamics of personally engaging with a client. They know how to clarify options, to encourage, to confront when necessary and to guide the client to new levels of success.
Coaching is a growing field where those who can positively impact the lives of others are in increasingly high demand.
I want to assure you, the world is waiting for people to step up and provide coaching to navigate the inevitable and relentless changes we are all confronted with in today’s volatile environment. People are eager for guidance in careers, relationships, health, finances, spiritual vitality, and personal development. Coaching is a growing field where those who can positively impact the lives of others are in increasingly high demand.
If you are truly serious about being a coach and want to be certified by 48 Days, the 48 Days Coaching Mastery Program is for you. For $4800, you will not only be equipped with the knowledge it takes to be a coach, but more importantly you will learn how to lay out your business plan and get expert guidance directly from Career Expert Dan Miller.
The Coaching Mastery program is the best thing I could have invested in to take my coaching business to the next level. The resources and tools I received along with the customized coaching from Dan helped me achieve my goals more quickly than I could have on my own. In addition, connecting with the other coaches in the program has provided an invaluable network of support and encouragement. I highly recommend the Coaching Mastery program if you want to skyrocket your success as a coach.
I highly recommend the 48 Days Coaching Mastery Program for anyone who is serious about developing their coaching business and establishing their platform. Dan’s approach is very personal and engaging. It’s not a cookie cutter approach but one focused on where you want to go and grow. Dan Miller challenges your thinking and your approach, keeps you accountable and on task. He requires a plan that’s well thought out. And because Dan is so creative, he’s full of ideas that you may not have thought of and didn’t think were realistic. By having an open mind, embracing his challenges and pursuing the vision that he helps you clarify for yourself, you can be the coach that you desire to be and be successful.
One year ago I joined the Coaching Mastery Program as a last ditch effort in resurrecting my coaching business of 5 years. In 5 years I had not had enough paying clients to pay for my expenses, meaning I was losing money at coaching and not making it. I was ready to give up coaching all together. I learned so much from Dan, not only in how to be a coach, but how to market myself and create additional areas of income. The Venn Diagram he gave us is still posted above my desk. In the last year I have increased my coaching business, made a profit last year and am in a position for this year to be even better. Through the Coaching Mastery Program I met many members of the 48 days community who became my encouragers as the year has unfolded. I graduated the Coaching Mastery Program with more knowledge as a coach, ideas and concrete plans on how to market myself and most importantly HOPE. I recommend the Coaching Mastery Program to everyone who asks me how to get started as a coach.

Do I really need to be certified?
If you’re like others looking at this exciting new field, you are probably wondering about “certification” and “licensure.” We live in a culture where academic degrees have been highly valued and given with the expectation that success will then follow. However, real life does not support that expectation. We see people who have sacrificed time and money in exchange for a degree, only to discover that real opportunities require characteristics other than a piece of paper. People pay for competence and results – not for the privilege of looking at a diploma.
Coaching clearly falls in this new arena of opportunities. We are seeing successful coaches emerge from years of successfully running a business, from being a pastor of a church, from being an effective homemaker and Mom, or after having transformed one’s own life through discipline and determination. The person in the street does not recognize the merits of licensure or certification; what he/she is looking for is a person who can produce results. Training programs seldom have an accurate measurement of competence – they, like most any program of academics, reward people who pay tuition and regurgitate printed information. The person in need of coaching is expecting someone to come alongside, help clarify options and then provide the gentle for firm encouragement to execute those best options.
Thankfully, we have a solution. Instead of simply being certified, how about a true mastery program to walk you through the process of coaching so you can, indeed, call yourself an expert!
Not sure if coaching is right for you?
Many coaches, unfortunately, know little about running a business. They struggle with how to market their services, how to find that first client, how to fill their schedule with paying clients, and how to add residual income to their normally expected linear income. This is why we start this program with our three live events each year. Our Coaching with Excellence live event is an excellent overview to determine whether coaching is the right fit for you. In this, we talk about coaching as a profession, where the opportunities are, and ways coaches are generating additional income.
If you would like to be a coach but are not sure if this is the way to go, come to this event first before even making the decision on joining the Mastery Program. If, after attending, coaching is indeed a fit, you can register for the Mastery Program for only $3800! Read more details and register here—spaces fill up fast!
