I will take you by the hand and PERSONALLY walk you through both the mindset and the specific skills of career coaching – including how to structure each session and build your business – that will make working with clients a breeze, without having to be the “expert” in their field or to work hard to have the answers.

Imagine Your Life as a Certified Career Coach…
Most people work in jobs they don’t enjoy, don’t make enough money – or in these times, don’t have a job at all. In just a few months, you could be making a great living helping them.
- Instead of this: working a grueling 40-hour week, with two weeks’ vacation, a boss you don’t like, a limited salary (and no prospects for increases any time soon), suffering through a commute to work in traffic each day, and having to “dress for success,”
- You could instead be: your own boss (!), working from a home office, two to three days a week, setting your own hours, choosing your clients, taking off as much time as you wish, realizing an hourly billable rate of $200/hour or more, and if you decided to take the family to the beach or the mall or the park in the middle of the day or week, you could do so (and no one would need to approve it!). You would have the freedom to travel, live where you want, and spend more time with your loved ones (and with yourself too). It’s also very rewarding to see people find the work they love…and begin contributing in a bigger way too.
And it’s not as hard as you think to learn! Just keep reading, and we’re going to show you how to learn the skills you need to demystify the coaching landscape, help people find and grow in a job they LOVE, master marketing and client engagement, and more. Then you have come to the right place!

Here are the Facts About The Profession of Career Coaching
Coaching is a fairly new industry as industries go…it began in 1989. And we were the first to apply it to career in 2001. So you are getting in on the ground floor of a HUGE opportunity! Here are some facts you will want to know:
Facts about coaching:
- Coaching is now a $1.5 billion industry
- Coaching has been rated one of the top ten home-based home-based businesses to start by national business magazines
- People who use a career coach get jobs 15 to 46 percent faster than those that do not, according to Lee Hecht, Harrison
- Coaching is the second fastest growing profession next to management consulting
Facts about today’s workers (career coaches’ clients):
- Most people change careers 10-14 times during their lifetime
- The average job lasts just 2 to 3 years
- The corporation as we know it will not exist in 10 years (Tom Peters)
- The average worker today holds nearly 10 jobs before age 36 (US Dept. of Labor)
Given these facts, you can see why career coaches are in such demand – and there is a virtually unlimited market of dissatisfied, displaced and retiring workers. You can learn the skills and knowledge you need to be a successful career coach in just a few months.
“Working with Marcia was the single best investment I made this year. I closed three clients at higher fees than I have ever charged, bringing in more than $59,500 of business in just a few weeks! I am now on track to TRIPLE my income this year, and on my way to my goal to start a private health facility for children to manage and overcome anxiety-related illnesses, thanks to Marcia’s masterful coaching.”
The very first qualification to be a career coach is that you have a sincere desire to help others. Whether you seek to apply coaching within your company or form your own business, it is about helping people realize their dreams – and transcend barriers. It takes a heart-felt commitment to do this!
There are no official prerequisites to be a successful career coach. Our students span many personality types, industries, backgrounds and locations. But most of our students come from one of 5 groups:
- Frustrated, burned out or dissatisfied managers, professionals and executives in a wide ranges of industries, from finance to manufacturing, high tech, medical devices, utilities, health care, and more
- Life coaches and executive coaches that want more in-depth training in how to coach people about career and work issues
- Career counselors that want to update their skills or add coaching to existing offerings
- Trainers, authors, consultants and speakers that desire to use coaching as a follow-on service to help attendees and readers implement the principles they teach
- Recruiters and executive search professionals that want a profit stream to carry them through economic downturns (since career coaching is recession-proof, it perfectly fits this need)
You will need to possess three types of traits to be successful as a career coach:
- Excellent ability to communicate. You must be able to listen well, build rapport, and observe strengths and obstacles in clients, and be able to communicate in a positive yet firm way.
- The entrepreneurial personality (assuming you are seeking to start or expand your own business). This includes being achievement oriented, able to work independently and be self-directed, and to follow through on your goals – even when it gets challenging!
- Business management skills such as the key elements of a web site, marketing principles, bookkeeping basics for entrepreneurs, sales, finance, business and strategic planning, and the like. (These can be learned through some of our bonus training too.)
Successful career coaches have gained expertise and adopted habits you will need to cultivate to recreate their success yourself. You’ll learn them in this training!
What I knew most about was career and employment, which led me to the Career Coach Institute. There I found a program that was not only specific to my interests, but was highly professional and extremely well organized with an over-abundance of resources that would transform my world and how I do business. Over a period of six months, I developed skills I had never utilized before during my entire career. It gave me a whole new perspective on the process of selection –and allowed me to get business and income I would not have otherwise had: coaching candidates! More than just a headhunter, I became an ally to my clients in determining best fit, and was frequently engaged in coaching employees out of situations they should have never been put into. As a career coach, my fees today are practically on par with my retainer search fees. But more importantly, this new experience has opened my mind to new possibilities, and inspired in me a passion to write and speak about what I’ve learned.

“Career coaching, whether for performance or professional growth—especially inside organizations—is truly the ‘new training.’ “Career management” is an increasingly important topic for individuals, and as workplace loyalty decreases, the need for career coaching increases. My individual coaching work has grown by at least 30% each year as career resilience continues to be the only “job security” in today’s economy. Creating work I love, and helping clients do the same is a remarkable way to live my purpose!”
