Their coaching business is a side hustle.

At Evercoach, we call people like this “secret coaches.”

They’re the ones who know in their heart that coaching is their calling – they know they’re born to coach – but every day they wake up and go to their 9-to-5 job which they hate or they feel stuck running a business that doesn’t light them up.

Meanwhile, the thing they really want to do, the business they truly want to grow – coaching – isn’t bringing in enough income and it’s driving them c-r-a-z-y!

CHAPTER 1

The Truth About
Full-time Coaching

If you’ve never been a full-time coach, it’s hard to know what to expect.

That’s why it’s good to get honest and develop an understanding about the realities of full-time coaching, so you don’t end up disappointed – or worse – feeling like a failure.

When you’re a side-hustler, full-time coaching can feel like a dream come true but you need to know that it’s not all sunshine and rainbows.

THE NOT-SO-GREAT SIDES

Full-time coaching, especially early in the game, can be a bit of an uphill climb in terms of client attraction and income.

It takes a massive amount of persistence and patience to build a great reputation, and a stable base of clients so your coaching business can bring in the income you want.

Full-time coaching can also be exhausting.

The truth is, it’s tough to give it your all and coach at maximum capacity day after day, month after month and year after year.

There are times when you won’t receive the financial return, appreciation or thanks that you want and deserve, and you could be unfairly judged, criticized and easily overshadowed by more established coaches.

THE AMAZING UPSIDES

On the plus side, coaching is one of the most rewarding and lucrative professions in the world.

Nothing compares to knowing that you are making a difference in people’s lives and in the world… and that you get paid well to do the work that you love.

There’s also limitless potential in how far you can go as a coach.

While so many other jobs, professions and entire industries crumble in the face of digitalization, A.I and other outside forces and economic trends, coaching is going from strength to strength.

In recent years, the coaching industry has seen exponential growth and demand for coaches across industries and categories – health, life, business – continues to rise.

You can definitely benefit from this expansion when you’re serious about upleveling your skills and when you make a commitment to becoming the best full-time coach and business owner you can be.
