What is Life Coaching?

One of the questions I get asked most often is “What is life coaching?” That’s why episode #1 of Unlimited is all about life coaching! 

In this episode of Unlimited, the podcast, I’m sharing the importance of life coaching and how to understand this very popular, very helpful, but also very vague modality. 

Some of what I’ll cover in this episode include:

  • The differences between coaching and therapy, consulting, and mentoring
  • Certification and the International Coaching Federation
  • How to find the right life coach to support you
  • How life coaching helps when you’re starting a business

Life/Business alignment coaching is my jam and I love helping to make these tools accessible no matter where you’re at.  So be sure to tune in to all the episodes to receive tons of practical tips on professional coaching and self coaching.

Thank you for listening!
