Are you the kind of friend who people reach out to when they’re in trouble?
Maybe you’re the supportive shoulder to cry on with carefully chosen words of love and affection or perhaps you’re from the school of tough-love, who gives out expert advice in a no-nonsense, no-frills kind-of-way that your friends really appreciate.

In fact, there were around 17,500 coach practitioners (a broad term that includes school therapists and government workers), working in the U.S in 2016. It’s a tough but rewarding career.
In fact, it could be a lucrative position that you could one day turn into a business empire.
But just how long does it take to become a life coach? It’s actually a lot simpler than you might think.
