When a life coach does his job, it is not really the money that he gets from it that primarily motivates him. Although not a primary motivation, he need to think of a salary in order to live. This is why, like any career, it is important to know how much we are going to earn in order to keep up with our way of life.
Most life coaches are their own bosses, or self-employed. Being self-employed allows you to determine what your wages and fees are. There is a wide range of fess that life coaches charge, and they come in the range from over a hundred dollars to over a thousand dollars per session. His experience, reputation, and coaching type determines the amount the life coach charges. A life coach can charge higher if he has more experience and better reputation.
Fees that life coaches charge involve many things. It is not only the session that coaches charge, but also for the consultation, the preparation, the follow-up, and the time that it takes to get to know your client. The cost of a one-on-one session is usually more than the cost of a group session.
IF a life coach has a website, you won’t usually find charges published in the site. If a life coach charges high, the tendency for clients is to be scared to hire that coach. If you only charge a small amount, clients might not trust you to be a good life coach. When you have one-on-one consultation with a life coach, this is the best time that he discusses fees with his clients.
Many coaches struggle with charging fees. Some feel that their services are not worth is so they feed bad with the high fees they charge. The truth is that life coaches offer valuable service that is worth what you pay for. Even if you pay a high cost to a life coach, it is all worth it. If a life coach realizes this, his business will be better off.
