If you want to help others and make a difference in the world, you deserve to make a great living at the same time. Being passionate about relationships is just the beginning. The key to making a good living helping others is to have a solid plan in place for a successful business as a relationship coach and getting the support you need to make it happen.
Coaching is a rewarding profession, but it isn’t a “get-rich-quick” scheme. Starting and running your own business takes time, effort, and money. As long as you have the passion, it is SOOOO worth it, but to help you decide if relationship coaching is for you, we’d like to give you a realistic view of building your relationship coaching business.
How much money will it cost to build my business?
There's no easy answer for this. Not only do you need to acquire the skills needed to coach your clients, but start and grow your business.
So, you need to invest now to get started and continue to invest in your business to make it thrive. The good news about a coaching business is that the overhead is typically a lot lower than a traditional "brick-and-mortar" business. Most coaches work from home, don't carry a large inventory - if any at all, and don't have staffing costs.
But, that also doesn't mean you pay for your training and that's the end of your business costs - not at all. If you want a successful business, you should also expect to spend time, money, and energy on:
- Coach Certification
- Website (design, hosting, security, SEO)
- Social media presence
- Equipment (computer, headset, wifi, mobile phone)
- Business coach or mentor
- Business and marketing training
- Coaching forms and assessments
- Coaching programs
- ...and more

How soon can I quit my job and coach full-time?
It takes most new coaches at least 2 years to replace their income and rely on their coaching income.
