Most people spend around 90,000 hours at work in their lives – or a third of most of our days alive!
Imagine spending a third of your life “surviving” until the weekend, pushing through weeks of unfulfilling work just to save enough time and money for the one of the few vacations you’re allowed to have in a year.
If you’re like most people, you don’t have to imagine it. You’re living it.
But I challenge you to consider this: If you’re going to trade your life for something, trade your life for something you’re passionate about – that you love doing.
Today we’re going to talk about a career that has led thousands of people to more fulfilled, free, and fun lives: transformational life coaching.
I’m going to share with you what almost 4,000 people have shared as the top 7 things they love being a transformational coach!
These are life coaches that we’ve trained and certified over the last decade, and if you’re considering taking on a similar calling, you’re about to gain some extraordinary, real-world insights that will help guide you in the right direction.
Let’s get right into it!
#1 – A Transformational Life Coach Is a Calling of Impact
The first benefit that our graduates love about being a transformational coach is the impact they get to make in people’s lives.
There’s a great quote that says, “Most people are affected by the world, but few people affect the world.”
And as a life coach, you literally get to affect the world by helping people change their lives and build their dreams.
But there are two main types of life coaches:
As a transformational life coach, you’ll guide your clients beyond personal development by helping them uncover their blind spots so they can positively change the 4 biggest pieces (quadrants) of their lives:
- Health and Wellness
- Vocation (Career)
- Time and Money Freedom
In short, your coaching clients will get to experience a whole new set of life experiences.
The stories that we get from our life coaches and the changes that people are making in their lives are extraordinary and I wanted to share one of those stories with you here.
“What is a Transformational Coach” Example
Becca, one of our coaches, shared this story with us:
I wanted to share a success story from one of my clients. He attended a Vision Workshop that I was doing, and he came to me afterwards stating that he was a broken man.
He struggled with his dream because he had a very low sense of deserving. He made some choices and decisions that placed him divorced, with a few misdemeanors, and health issues that resulted in losing his legs and being confined to a wheelchair.
He resigned himself to living a life as homebound and in a relationship that was no longer serving him.
Fast forward to yesterday. He is now walking on prosthetic legs, received a job offer, is out and about town on a daily basis, and has improved his relationships with his children and his wife.
They went on a dancing date this past weekend and he just said to me, “I love my life and I want more.”
And he just signed up for the second coaching program with her.
This man’s life has forever changed because of the good work that he did with Becca! That’s the kind of impact that you can have in people’s lives.
Throughout your coaching journey with us, you will be provided with all the tools necessary to become a highly effective life coach able to make an impact in a repeatable, reliable manner.
Which also means you’ll have what it takes to become a profitable business owner!
#2 – You Have No Cap on Your Income
Our coaches also list financial freedom as one of the top benefits of life coaching.
In other words, unlimited financial potential for yourself because you’re running your own life coaching business!
That means your income isn’t determined by some board or boss that’s setting the mark for you.
You get to decide how much you earn and you can take it as high as you want. Which leads us to the common question:
How Much Does a Transformational Coach Make?
When it comes to success stories, the income coaches make can vary. Here are just a few of the results our coaches have generated after becoming certified through us:
Within 45 days of becoming a certified DreamBuilder Coach, Joseph was earning a five-figure income that not only paid for his certification but gave him extra income on top of that!
“I resigned from corporate America and I’m doing what I love: speaking and inspiring people to live their passion. After all those years of following what people told me was responsibility, for me, responsibility means that every Monday is a fun day…and I enjoy the heck out of every Monday of my life.”
After being certified as a DreamBuilder Coach, Jessica earned $45,000 in less than 6 months:
“I went from working over 60 hours a week and earning a healthy six figure income to now working 30 hours a week, replacing my income and doing work that I love. It’s amazing. And so, if you think that you have to sacrifice abundance to do work you love, let me tell you, you don’t. If I can do it, you can do it.”
After spending 25 years as a corporate employee for one of the largest banks in Texas, David became a full-time speaker, coach, and teacher. In the 4 years since David became a coach, he generated $1.8 million dollars in revenue!
“I serve now as a living example for [my grandchildren] so that they can live and grow up and live the life that they absolutely love. I love doing that more than anything in the world.”
One of our featured coaches, Adelina, transitioned into her life coaching career from her job as a social worker. She had a huge heart for people, but she was making $40,000 a year for five consecutive years!
One day she thought to herself, “I love helping people and I would love to create more financial abundance for myself.” So she became certified through the Brave Thinking Institute and shared these results not too long ago in our Facebook group:
“God is so good. May was my biggest month ever with $54,400 in sales and right now for June, I’m already over $30,000 in sales. Plus I truly love my clients. They really are my ideal clientele. Thank you, Brave Thinking Institute and the Life Mastery Consultant family for continuing to believe in me and my dream.”
How cool is that? $84,000 in two months!
Adelina worked for that. She focused on that. She set her goal there and you can do the same thing as a life coach. You get to decide how high you take your income and you get to decide who your “ideal client” is.
And as one of the first steps you’ll take even as a beginner life coach, you’ll have the freedom to create your own calendar too!
#3 – You Create Your Own Schedule
As your own boss, you’ll absolutely love being a transformational coach. You get to set up your own hours; decide when you want to work, and what days you want to work. It’s completely up to you.
Additionally, you’ll have the freedom to make time for your personal life and your professional life without sacrificing one for the other!
It works because you’ll have a predictable coaching process and structured coaching sessions, empowering you to eliminate the guessing game about how much time goes into each step of the coaching journey.
For example, let me tell you about a Brave Thinking Institute coach named Stacey.
Now, Stacey was working in the corporate space. She was making about $120,000 a year, but the challenge was working long hours.
She would get up in the morning, before her kids woke up and then she would get home at night.
Usually, her kids were already in bed so she would be welcomed into a really dark home that was making her feel so bad because she knew she was trading her kids’ childhoods for a paycheck.
So Stacey decided to become a life coach.
She built her life coaching business and the cool part is now she makes way more money than she did in the corporate space. But even better than that is, she sets her own calendar.
Now, she gets to walk her kids to the school bus in the morning. She gets to volunteer for the school plays and all the things that she wants to do as a mom and be a successful professional and the great mom that she wants to be!
And if that freedom gets your heart pumping with excitement, then you’ll love being a transformational coach!
#4 – You Get to Work from Anywhere in the World
You can work from anywhere in the world if you run your own coaching practice!
After working with us, you’ll be equipped to run coaching programs from anywhere in the world for any of your potential clients no matter their background!
For example, one of our coaches, Jeanette, had a dream to run the marathon on the Great Wall of China.
So she flew to China, was still able to host her coaching calls, and ran the marathon on the Great Wall.
As Jeanette’s story illustrates, an amazing life coach supports not just the spiritual growth of their clients, but also their own!
Successful people – especially in the life coaching industry – continually seek opportunities for personal growth and fulfillment, and are able to do so because of the virtual nature of their work.
The lesson here is that being a part of the coaching industry expands the impact of your presence in a borderless, unlimited way, and empowers you to live a life you love!
#5 – You Get to Reach People From Across the Globe
On top of being able to work from anywhere in the world, successful life coaches change lives around the world.
As a personal example, one of the reasons I love being a transformational coach is because I get to make a global impact right where I am.
I remember when I first started my life coaching business and I thought to myself, “God, I would love to impact people around the globe.”
And just last week I was having a Zoom call and felt a deep sense of gratitude for all the diverse places people were joining in from. In fact, most of our events, like DreamBuilder Live, have thousands of people attend from over 96 countries!
It gives me great pride to know that we create life-changing content and make it available to audiences worldwide (via our email list, for example)!
Life coaching allows you to share your message and influence around the world, not just with your clients, but through your own marketing efforts.
#6 – You Choose the Clients You Love to Work With (Over and Over Again)
As a successful, spiritual life coach, you’ll have clients that love working with you in your coaching programs and will continue working with you over a long period of time.
This is especially true for Barbara Hinske, a former lawyer. Barbara and I have been working together for 13 years. Her dream was to become an author and here’s what she’s shared about that journey:
“I have currently published 14 novels. One of them has been adapted for the Hallmark Channel. It’s a Hallmark Channel Christmas movie, and I’m in talks on other screen projects and proceeds for one of my books which benefited the Foundation for Blind Children.”
Barbara is an example of how doing good work ripples out to the world.
You get to help people build their dreams and live a life they absolutely love!
Your clients will love working with you, and you’ll love working with them – and it can last decades. Which leads us to our final reason why you’ll love being a transformational coach.
#7 – You Experience Real, Deep Connections
As a life coach, people are going to share with you things they don’t share with anyone else. They’re going to share with you their most precious dreams. They’re going to share with you their greatest fears and you’re going to help them transcend their circumstances.
And as a certified coach, you’re not just working with people one-on-one or in groups, but you have the opportunity to lead retreats as one of your coaching strategies.
For example, my sister is a top trainer and expert faculty member here at the Brave Thinking Institute and she’s the Founder & Director of the Health & Wellbeing Division.
Every year she takes heart-centered clients on a powerful transformational wellness retreat to Tulum, Mexico as part of her flagship health and well-being coaching program. She uses a coaching method that leads people through deep spiritual practices and fun, healing adventures.
Terri Green attended the 2022 Tulum retreat and has this to say about her experience:
“I would not trade my time here for anything in the world. It was the best investment I’ve ever made in myself. It gave me the chance to literally transform my life and let go of my past, and to create my future, and be ready to go.
My paradigms are done, they’re gone – I know they’ll come back up but now I’ll know how to face them, I know how to move through them, I know how to recognize them.
The work that Jennifer does goes right to the core, right to the heart. I’ve been doing work with trying to transform my life for years with different types of programs, and this is the one that made it right to my heart. If you have that opportunity, please come for you.”
With our life coach certification program, you will receive proven systems, as well as guidance on developing signature programs that will help you reach and connect with your clients in your own unique way!
