Leo’s Top 140 Self Help Books
http://www.actualized.org/books

Hey, this is Leo for Actualized.org. Here we’re doing another quick self-help segment where I’m going to quickly cover the topic of how to become a life coach.

I am a life coach so I’m qualified to talk about this. I went through the process. It’s actually not hard. If you’re interested in becoming a life coach, listen up because I’m going to give you some quick tips and techniques and give you a plan for how to do it.

I’ll go into much deeper detail on it in some other video where I can talk about it at length. Since this is a quick rapid-fire segment, I’m just going to give you the skinny and the practical things that you can do right now.

If you want to become a life coach, the best thing that I can recommend is to join a life coach training program. There are many programs out there. Make sure that you get one that is credible and has some good reviews and that provides you with certification.

Certification comes from the International Coaching Federation. You can look up their website. There they’ll have a list of all sorts of schools that they accredit and that will give you the kind of training that is in line with the International Coaching Federation.

You want to align with a school that’s aligned with the ICF because the ICF is the standard governing body across the world for coaches. It just came out as the standard and now everybody is on board with that.

Honestly, you don’t even need a coaching certification to be a coach. What I do find valuable in the training programs, though, is that they teach you what it means to be a coach because it’s not all that it seems to be at the beginning.

Let me give you some details on these certification programs. I went through a program called iPEC. You can Google them. They’re one of the best programs out there. It’s a comprehensive program.

It costs around ,000 to do. It is a little bit pricey, but you have to put that in perspective with everything else that is out here.

Any decent coaching program around is going to cost you somewhere in the range of ,000 to ,000. iPEC is competitive there and they don’t have any extra hidden fees or anything. That’s it. You just pay the ,000 and then you do the program. It’s pretty nice.

You have to ask yourself if that’s worth it to you. If this is going to be your career and your profession, then it’s actually not a big price to pay. With any other serious profession that you would go into, you would spend way more than ,000 to get degrees, certifications, and trainings. It would take you a lot longer than it will take you to finish a coaching program — even a comprehensive one like iPEC.

The iPEC takes about ten months to do the whole curriculum. They do it in modules. You have four modules and you take one module then you get two or three months to do the homework assignments and the practice of coaching throughout that.

Then they have another module where they train you for a weekend and then you do another couple months of training and homework assignments. Then they do more of these modules. Through this module process, you can learn to become a coach.

    Hello Leo, first of all, thank you for this great content!

    However…
    I didn't understand the part when you advised to choose special coach orientation(8:17)…for example you-self have different kinds like relationships,business,spirituality…I know that this things relate one to another, but why didn't you specialize in only one them?

    It has been my experience that life coaches as a group are untrained, pretend counselors who did not or could not complete a masters level degree or have been banned by a state board for unethical practices. It is a safe haven with no oversight. There is no difference between a life coach and a Level 19 Dungeon Master.  They are both made up titles with no uniform qualifications and they feast on the weak minded. There is nothing a life coach can tell you that you cant read in a Tony Robbins book.  That should tell you all you need to know about the "profession". They would also be good used car salesmen.  I know, that last statement was probably over the line.  Car salesmen have ethics.

    You have a very unique way of talking. By that I mean there's a pattern on your tone when you speak.

    I haven't even seen that kind of money in my entire life, and I'm about to turn 21.

    My passion is literally everything that comes with personal development, from questions as "why are we here" or "does god exist" to the classical "how to become happy".

    However it seems kinda paradoxical.

    While I study and literally eat through all this stuff, I find that if I am to make money, it should be through my passion (ergo – enjoying your work). But my passion is this weird cycle: help someone -> receive positive feedback -> feel awesome about that -> receive a reward -> repeat. 

    What should I do, Leo? Should I just force myself to make money first, even though that's not really my passion, and then bet on luck that I, hopefully, will return to the personal development ?

    Or should I jump straight in to my passion? That seems impossible, though. Without any REAL experience, only with years of studying the topic, seems like all doors are closed to me. No real expertise, no certificates, no fanbase, no brand…
