From Corporate Director to Personal Coach
My French teacher asked me today - what are advantages and disadvantages of working as an independent coach? Why did you change to it from the corporate suit?
I started to share with him the usual ones: possibility to work for yourself and not for narrow-minded bosses, meeting interesting new people almost every day, building an exciting career.
However the most important for me - the ability to positively influence the life of another person. When you witness in real time how your clients change the habits, thoughts, find solutions for problems which were bothering them, how they light up and start enjoying more every day - that is invaluable. That is actually why I am in the profession.
As for disadvantages - being self-employed meaning you have to actively search for clients if you want to have food on the table. But that is another story to tell.
