If there ever was a good time to make your vision to become a business coach a reality, it is now. The global COVID-19 crisis has challenged everyone to change the way in which they live and work. Businesses are under immense pressure to evolve in response to these dramatic changes if they are to survive.

More than ever, the market place is open to business coaching as business owners seek the mentorship and guidance of business coaches to help them navigate the new business landscape. Those with the right guidance from a professional business coach will survive and thrive beyond the current crisis.

Becoming a business coach presents an opportunity to take control of your future with a recession proof business while helping others to recession proof theirs!

Business coaching is considered a crisis and recession-proof profession for a number of reasons. Firstly it is already one of the fastest growing industries in the world, second to Information Technology. Business coaching growth is expected to far out-pace economic growth globally.

Secondly, the demand for business coaches tends to increase during times of crisis as business owners look for expert advice on transforming their companies in response to increasingly tighter and challenging markets in the wake of the pandemic.

Business coaching can also be done remotely and from anywhere in the world. Setting up a business coaching practice is also fairly quick, even today’s environment. As life and times have changed so dramatically, you are not limited to one-on-one coaching, executive coaching to make money. There is an array of complimentary services that you can offer, with each providing inroads into another.

Even before the era of lockdowns and social distancing, many people preferred the idea of a “virtual coach” rather than having to meet a coach personally. Now “virtual” coaching is the norm – for now anyway! You can host meetings online, have weekly calls, offer online training programmes and host webinars. 

This could be the moment you have been waiting for to launch your career as a business coach. To be up and running as quickly as possible, you need training. You also want access to proven methodologies, processes and strategies help you grow your new business as well as help you to get the best results for your clients.
