    What is the difference between Spiritual Coaching and Life Coaching?

    Life Coaching is about coaching people in all areas of life. Spirituality is one of those areas. In Spiritual Coaching we address life from a spiritual perspective, so spirituality is more of a focus in this course.

    If you conducted research on the Internet, most coaches are charging $300 to $600 a month for individuals or $800 to $1,200 a month for executive and organizational coaching.

    Coaching fees vary according to where you live, your niche, and your personal preference.

    As our coaching process is more in depth, most of our alumni choose to work with their clients on an hourly basis. Other coaches work with their clients for only a half-hour or 45 minutes. You can also provide group coaching and workshops. In our class or in your private session with your instructor, you will determine your natural marketing style, give you feedback on your marketing strategy, help you determine your fees and packages, and give you new ideas for social media, live speeches and workshops, and referral sources.

    How long does it take for most people to launch their business?

    Some people are able to get their business going immediately. Just three weeks after completing her course, one graduate booked five radio shows and got local magazines and newspapers to write a story on her. Others take a longer time to get started because they work full-time, have a family, or have other responsibilities which also require their focus. The average person who wants to make their livelihood as a coach takes 3 months to a year to build a successful practice.

    You will receive support in 7 different ways.

    Individual time with your instructor to support you in your unique marketing strategy.

    Over 100 pages of marketing ideas and materials in your training manual – samples of ads, brochures, speeches, workshops, and a comprehensive review of all the methods used by our successful coaches.

    You will discuss the how to’s of marketing in your class and determine your niche, name of your business, and marketing approach.

    You will be coached from a buddy in the class to successfully market your business.

    You will complete a thorough marketing strategy and review this with your instructor.

    This plan includes:

    • Defining your unique life purpose, your unique message, making it marketable and profitable
    • Discussing effective ways you can market yourself
    • Determining an action plan that will generate the income you desire
    • Reviewing website copy, workshops, or any other marketing material you have
    • Your transition plan for transitioning from your current work into having a part-time or full-time coaching practice.

    You will receive long-term support via our private Alumni Facebook group, monthly Free Alumni Classes, emails, and phone calls to address any concerns you have about marketing

    The good news about coaching is that you are not selling widgets. This is a personal service that is about helping others. It is about caring, showing compassion, and really connecting with other people. Marketing needs to be natural. During the class and individual time with your instructor we find ways that are natural and easy for you, and that fit within your schedule.

    For specific examples of easy and natural marketing techniques, you might wish to come to our free online class. As a graduate of Life Purpose Institute, you will get extensive support and virtually step-by-step instruction from many live calls and webinars and recorded and archived content within the Alumni Center.

    Is there a spiritual aspect to the process?

    We teach how to incorporate spirituality into the coaching where appropriate. We respect each person’s unique philosophical and spiritual path.

    I have many interests and abilities. Do I have to have one niche, or can I have a more general coaching practice?

    Many of the people we work with are multifaceted. If you are dependent on marketing through the Internet, you need to niche as there are thousands of coaches. If, however, you are marketing locally through speaking or contacts you have, you can have a more general practice. That being said, you still need to come up with a catchy and marketable approach.

    Life Purpose Institute will reasonably accommodate qualified students with a disability so that they can attend a program.

    You will become a Certified Life Coach (CLC) and you will be able to provide coaching to individuals and groups. The materials you receive during your training are like receiving a “business in a box.” Everything is included for you to start and succeed in your own coaching practice.
