In the past few years, you may have started hearing the term “life coach” for the first time and wondered what the heck all the hype is about. Well, here are the answers to all your questions.

A life coach is a person you can hire, like a personal trainer, to help you meet your goals in life. Different coaches can specialize in different areas, like health or wealth, but most are general and can assist you in whichever goals you have. Whether you’re looking for a way to grow your business, become more mindful, or improve your marriage, you can probably find a life coach that can help you. A life coach can also help you determine what your goals are if you aren’t sure.

There are people who hesitate to look into life coaching because they don’t understand the value. The common response is to look at sports. All athletes, no matter how good they are, have coaches, because making plans and creating a path toward meeting your goals isn’t always something you can do alone.

It’s not therapy, aimed to treat psychological issues. It’s not for broken people or rich people or bored people or any specific type of person. It’s simple, if you want a little extra help building the future you want, it might be worth looking into life coaching.
