– Why do people hire a life coach?
– How does someone get the professional credentials to be one? Is there state licensing?
– How much money can you make as a life coach?
– Do people often have both a therapist and a life coach, or just have one?
– Is there a beginning and an end to life coaching work with a client or does it go on indefinitely?
– Making the decision to start your own shop versus join an existing life coaching company
