If you are lucky enough to have the chance to turn your passion into a paycheck, then by all means you should do it! Business Coaching may be a good fit for you if you have a desire to share your depth of business knowledge and experience with others in an effort to help them succeed. There are many reasons to pursue business consulting, but today I want to focus on just three:
1. No More Monday
If you love what you do, then every day can be Friday. If I am truly honest with myself, there are times when my weekend cuts into my fun. Once, in the middle of a family vacation, I had the opportunity to speak at an event. My wife asked "Why would you want to do that?" My answer was "Why wouldn't I? I get to have a great time, and then I have the bonus opportunity to speak!”
2. Work for a Cooler Boss (assuming you like yourself)
You could have a great boss right now, but wouldn't it be better if the only person you had to answer to was yourself? Think about the time you would save in meetings alone!
3. Keep What You EarnPerhaps the biggest reason to pursue becoming a behavioral consultant is the ability to keep what you earn. My father once told me, "Son, you are going to spend the rest of your life working hard for money. You have two choices: You can either work hard to pay your boss and your company, or you can work hard and pay yourself."
Overall, many who practice Behavioral Coaching find it to be rewarding, fulfilling and lucrative, once you determining your niche and market yourself. Many people are attracted to coaching because they believe they have gained experience and expertise in a particular field, and believe they have a lot to share to help others achieve success.
