There’s this new craze that everyone is on that earns a lot of money for the service provider and I’m not completely sure that the consumer is getting their money’s worth.
It’s called a Personal Life Coach or even a business coach. To offer this service, one usually attends a seminar for a couple of days and gets a certificate from another higher level coach.
Life coaching has grown to be a hugely successful form of talking therapy, to the extent that it has helped turn people’s lives around. A life coach is someone that looks to empower others by helping them make, meet and exceed goals in both their personal and professional lives – https://www.skillsyouneed.com/rhubarb/life-coaching.html

I’m not quite sure what this life coach can offer you that you don’t already know or what you can look up online and learn yourself, maybe it’s the accountability it offers – you have a call with a coach and have to say that you did or did not complete your goal and why?
What do Life Coaches Cost:
From what I gather online, the majority of life coaches charge about $200 to $1,000 per month for a thirty or sixty minute call 3 or 4 times a month. Business coaches charge more. It all works out to about $100 to $400 per hour based on the coach. For example, I read an article that said Tony Robbins coaching fees range from about $4,500.00 to $6,000.00 for 6 months or 18 sessions, or from to $8,500.00 to $15,000.00 for 12 months or 36 sessions. Tony Robbins Coaching Fee Packages require advanced payment in full, of course. I mean for that amount of money – you could buy a new car or pay off an existing one which might lower your stress. I’m kidding, but in reality thats a lot of money. I can’t help but think that if you have that amount of money to spend, you might not need a coach… those of us that need coaching are the one’s living paycheck to paycheck, not the one’s that have 15k in their pocket.
