Time To Take A Closer Look At Health Coaching As Your Next Career

Companies like Google, Motorola and UnitedHealthCare are employing web-based health coaches everyday to address the problems of  healthcare directly. Because of the demand, there is a shortage of good qualified health coaches.


Could this be the next billion dollar business?

Health Coaching Is Catching On

I just reviewed a recent article which had the following title:

Health coaches catch on

Here are a few excerpts:

“There are many more job opportunities available for health coaches these days as corporations, insurance companies, medical centers and individuals are beginning to hire them,”


“On average, health coaches earn between $100 and $150 per hour, and those who are savvy marketers can earn up to six-figure salaries. But it’s more than money that draws most people into the field. They are dissatisfied in some way with their own lives. Becoming healthy, shedding weight and having more energy are their personal goals, which eventually become the selling point of their services.”


The person interviewed in the article was quoted:  “One tip he often gives clients is to start each morning with breathing exercises. His website promises such results as improving confidence and self-esteem, as well as developing healthy, lasting relationships. He charges between $395 and $495 per month for sessions, or $175 to $250 an hour. Corporate workshops garner $500 per hour.”

Another Way to Think of Health Coaching

Health coaching can best be defined as “A system of accountability of working with people who have a desire to improve their overall health and helping them setup and work toward their own personal goals”.

 

It isn’t so important how this is done, that is online via email and web conferences, using a telephone, face to face, or in a group setting. What is important is the health coach has been trained to communicate empathetically with people so they become motivated to affect positive changes in their lives and enjoy better health.

Health Coaching along side your Existing Business

 Some people find that health coaching is integrating well with an existing business. Perhaps you are simply looking for a career change, or to supplement your income. Maybe your desire is to improve your own overall health. Regardless of your goal, health coach training can help you reach your goals. And an overwhelming number of our trained health coaches find their work fun, more like play than work.

The Growing Niche of Health Coaching

This is my first post!   Anybody out there??  I suppose not since I just created this blog a few minutes ago.   Well, here goes…

My plan is to talk about the growing niche of health coaching.   I plan to talk about how you can earn an income as a health coach while working from the comfort of your home if that is your choice.  I also plan to discuss the option to work in an office environment or to provide health coaching as an additional service along with therapy or other health related practices.
