It's Time to Leave the 9-5 and Become a Well Paid, Happy Coach!

Let me be honest with you. It’s never going to feel like the right time to leave a comfortable, full-time job despite the issues you may have with it! You are always going to wonder if you’re doing the right thing and will feel scared about the future: What if I don’t make enough money? What if I lose the house? What if I can’t feed my kids? What if I can’t make it work? What if nobody pays me?


So many questions, fears, and worries. All genuine concerns that could actually happen.

But here’s the thing: When you become a business owner or freelancer, everything changes on an energetic level.


You find yourself driven by your own creativity and passion; fuelled by a desire to create change and be of service.

The sense of security in receiving a regular pay check is replaced by the freedom of creating your own schedule, being open to new opportunities you never even dreamed of, and building multiple income streams that grow over time, cushioning you through the ups and downs of entrepreneurship.


If you’re a parent, the flexibility of working for yourself means you never have to miss your child’s school or sporting events and never have to take unpaid leave when they’re sick. Plus, you’re more likely to cook healthier meals as you’re at home all day and can use screen breaks as food prep moments. Nothing beats the smell of homemade cookies or bread wafting through your home!


There are so many benefits to working for yourself, but of course it’s not all rose-tinted glasses! Before you give notice, it’s worth building up at least 6-12 months of savings that cover all your basic living expenses, plus a little extra for investing into your business. Or, if you have the time and energy, it can be a good idea to build up your business slowly as a ‘side hustle’, starting out with just that very first client.


Some people prefer the intensity and adrenaline that comes with jumping straight in 100%, while others prefer to go slow and steady and build gradually. There is no right or wrong way, only what feels best for you.


In my experience as a Master Coach and Trainer, many of these fears and worries around money and time pale into insignificance when compared to the deep calling that rises from within: the desire to coach people on their journey to a healthier, happier, more abundant life, free from their pain and struggles.


Coaching is a devotional path, a calling that you have to follow.


It’s no coincidence that you’re here reading this today. You’ve felt that calling too. You’ve always been a great listener, the friend that people come to with their problems, the one who’s always been curious about up-levelling her life and making small, incremental changes while others stayed stuck. You’ve probably followed high profile coaches online and wondered, ‘could I do that too?’.


The answer, my love, is yes!


You’re here now because you’re ready! You’ve always been good at your job but it’s never truly fulfilled you. You always felt a longing for something deeper, more nourishing to your soul. And you love to help, guide, support and inspire others. You’re desperate to play a part in creating change in the world - locally, nationally or globally - and you can’t put it off any longer.


It’s time to become a coach.


You’re ready to immerse yourself in the world of coaching and learn crucial new skills that will help you to support your clients on their transformational journey while simultaneously building your own financial freedom and a life of fulfilment and joy. 


It’s all possible for you.


The world needs more well-trained, trauma-informed coaches with integrity, compassion and love running through their DNA. Serving that call is my mission.


Follow your heart and soul.


We’ve all been through a crazy couple of years and even when restrictions ease, human beings from all walks of life will need a tremendous amount of support and coaching to overcome the trauma, pain and struggles they’ve endured, or in taking the next steps towards creating a life on their terms.


You’ve got this!


If you’re a health care worker, you may feel disillusioned with the career you entered into with so much enthusiasm and hope. In your heart, you know there’s another way you can help people that will feel more aligned to your values.


Whether you’re pulled towards mental health, physical fitness, nutrition, holistic therapies or life coaching, your skills and work experience combined with your unique gifts and exceptional coach training, will ensure you feel prepared to coach your clients, build a thriving business and ensure your own health and wellbeing is a priority throughout the journey.


It’s time to take that next step: invest in yourself and your future.


You can join the next cohort of Coach Training with me and an intimate group of up to 12 students which begins on January 6, 2022. This 6-month program allows you to train as a coach while still working your full-time job. Payment plans are available, so don’t let money stop you from following your dream.

Investing in yourself is the key factor in getting out of your current lifestyle and into something that feels more fulfilling, more aligned with your heart and soul, more rewarding. And, you’ll never need to feel under-valued and underpaid ever again!
