    I work with many new coaches as they create and grow their business from scratch. One of the biggest mistakes I see them make is to call themselves as "just a life coach". Here’s why and what do to instead. You’re a coach intent on growing your coaching practice. You would love to quit your day job and be an entrepreneur.

So, you’re doing everything you can to grow you’re coaching practice.     If you've always been curious about what it takes to become a successful life coach I've got something for you!!!
