How (and Why) To Become a Life Coach

be a coach

Every day I am asked by more people, “Dan, can I be a coach?”  And my response has always been, “Are people coming to you now for your advice and opinion?”  If they are, it may be a short step to position yourself as a coach.  If they are not, then perhaps you need to explore some other options.  (The fact that people are asking does not mean you are fully competent as a coach but it is likely a starting point.)
