In the U.S., the average professional coach makes roughly $150-$200 per hour. It is not uncommon for a seasoned coach to make well over $100,000 per year. If you are good at motivating and inspiring people, a coaching business may be a great choice for you.
As a professional coach, you will recognize and define your clients' goals; construct a realistic strategy for achieving your goals; establish a detailed program of actions, and activities; identify, manage, and change business improvements; get effective and timely results; monitor your progress and build on your successes; achieve what may have seemed impossible; and get the rewards and recognition you deserve. If you are investigating opportunities in this type of business, you should begin by reading this book.
If you enjoy working with people, this may be the perfect business for you. Keep in mind that this business looks easy but, as with any business, looks can be deceiving. This complete manual will arm you with everything you need, including sample business forms; contracts; worksheets and checklists for planning, opening, and running day-to-day operations; setting up your office; plans and layouts; and dozens of other valuable, time saving tools of the trade that no business should be without.

You will learn how to draw up a winning business plan (the companion CD-ROM has the actual business plan you can use in Microsoft Word ) and about basic cost control systems, market research, getting new clients, tax laws, pricing, leads, legal concerns, sales and marketing techniques, and pricing formulas.
