I have been working with a life coach for the last several months. This is the second coach I have worked with, not counting my personal fitness coach who I work with only periodically, in the last several years and have gained benefit each time. A life coach – or any type of coach for that matter – helps to bring out the best in you. They help you to stay focused on your goals whether they are related to fitness, writing, weight loss, building a business, being more assertive, trying to find your passion, creating balance in your life, or whatever – and keep you accountable.
Coaching is also a good career option for nurses. Nurses work as wellness coaches, life coaches, career coaches, writing coaches and more. You’ll find the profile of several nurse coaches on the Entrepreneur page of this web site. I discuss coaching and many other career options in my Career Alternatives for Nurses® seminars. Find out more here.
Want to find a coach to work with? In addition to those listed on the Entrepreneur page, ask around for some recommendations or contact a local chamber of commerce or other business association for some referrals. A coach doesn’t need to live near you since the work is done primarily by phone. Here’s a link to the coach I currently work with http://www.laurafenamore.com/.
