Additionally, 65% said working with a coach helped them improve their performance at work, and 80% said it helped improve their confidence. These statistics show that that you can get a lot out of working with a Life Coach.
Why pay for a Life Coach?
You’ve probably always turned to your mom or your BFF in times of doubt, struggle or whenever you needed guidance, right? You may walk away feeling a little better yet no closer to solving your problem or creating the life you want to live.
Family and friends will have your best interests in mind and because they don’t want to hurt your feelings they may not tell you something that you may need to hear so rarely can they offer you the best solution.
A life coach is trained to see your strengths, call you out when you are stuck in a limiting belief and ask you the right questions to help you master your mindset and transform the way you live your life.
Here’s another way to think of it of it… Would you ask your neighbor to fix your leaky roof or your nephew to give you tips on how to invest your money? Only if they were an expert carpenter or financial planner, right? Instead, you would hire a professional.
Do you have a cellphone, laptop or satellite TV? You at least have the first two and you pay for them… because? You pay for them because you see value in them.
When you pay for a coach to guide you to the life you’ve always wanted to live you are putting that value in yourself.
When you value yourself above other things (and people) paying to have a coach guide you to that dream is essentially a no brainer!
Cost of Coaching
So now you’re getting excited about working with a life coach but there’s that uncomfortable subject of money that we haven’t touch on yet. You’re wondering…
How much is a life coach going to cost me?
Most life coaches charge somewhere between $75 and $250 per hour. However, you can find coaches who fall way outside of that range and usually on the higher end. A seasoned coach with a great track record does not come cheap.
You can get some value from a single coaching session but the real benefit of hiring a life coach is experienced through an on-going relationship aimed at achieving your goals. Its hard to do that in one session!
For this reason, most coaches offer programs or packages for as little as 6 weeks to an entire year. That’s 12 months! Depending on the coach and the amount of time you will have direct contact with them packages can range from a few hundred dollars to a few thousand dollars a month. Sometimes you are required to pay in full and other provide a monthly payment option?
Like anything else, you should invest your money wisely but don’t base your choice of life coach solely on the cost. Make sure you find a coach that is a good fit and has the training and experience to move you forward in your life. The money you invest with a life coach should be well worth it.
