If helping people and avoiding a 9 to 5 desk job sounds appealing, you may want to work as a life coach. The job is about working with people from all walks of life, helping them determine their goals and then coming up with a plan to make those goals happen. A goal may be to change career, get married, start a business or become financially secure. You may be working with the same person for years, as together you work towards a pre determined goal. If you like the idea of a career as a life coach Atlanta has plenty of potential. To be successful as a coach, you obviously have to be a ‘people person’ and be understanding, patient, goal oriented and well organized. It’s definitely not your typical desk job and working in this field can be extremely rewarding.
