When is the right time to become a coach? There are so many people out there who are contemplating about becoming a coach but are discouraged to pursue their calling simply because they are not confident about how much they know and they are doubtful about their experiences and expertise thinking that it may not be enough to make them an effective coach. Is there a right time to become a coach? As a coach for many years, here are my answers.
Firstly, you have to learn deeply. As a coach, it’s not enough to learn something on the surface. You have to know it inside and out. Whatever it is, whether it’s an aspect of your business like marketing or accounting or if you are going through a tragedy, you have to know how to overcome it by heart.
Secondly, you have to practice what you learn. This is very important when you intend to be a coach because that’s where you’ll get your credibility. For instance, if you are going to launch a new weight loss program but you are not incorporating it in your life, then it would be difficult for people to connect with you. This doesn’t mean you have to be in perfect shape, it only means that when you endorse something, make sure that you are also practicing it.
Thirdly, go and teach others. It is inherent in every coach to have the passion to teach. Whatever knowledge, experience and expertise you have right now, go ahead and share it. You don’t have to be in business for fifty years to be able to share something valuable to people. Whatever you have right now is enough because there are people out there who are needing to hear from you.
Going back to the question, when is a great time to become a coach? My answer is, right now! You have it all within you and you have what it takes to be a coach.
