Have you thought about becoming a coach?


Michelle Marie interviewed on The Second Phase Podcast to chat about becoming a coach. On the podcast graphic, there is a photo of Michelle Marie in the bottom left hand corner under the podcast logo and a photo of Robyn on the right hand side.

Share your gifts and talents by coaching and helping others.


There are now so many opportunities.  Certification is not necessary to own the title of coach and the opportunities are endless.

The coaching industry has grown to a 2 billion-dollar industry, indicating that more and more people are using their life experiences and expertise to serve others.

Coaches aren’t just for athletes anymore.   There are business coaches, health and wellness coaches, lifestyle coaches, and more!

Becoming a coach is a great way to supplement your income by working just a few hours a week.

Coaching is a way to become more fulfilled.   If you are working in a 9 to 5 but don’t feel passionate or like you’re fulfilled, become a coach.

Being an entrepreneur is a roller coaster ride. There are battles with self-worth, confidence, etc. We also have to discover what we can give up, begin something new and find the time and energy to do it all.

Listen to episode 1 of Put your Passion to Work and hear how Michelle found her calling and made the decision to become a coach.

Things to think about when considering a career as a coach:


  • Certification is not necessary. If you love schooling and want to invest the money in certification, that is a personal choice.  Certifications can cost up to $10K to $15K.
  • Think about being a couple of steps ahead of others. As long as you are ahead of others, you can teach what you know to others coming up behind you.                

What is a Coach

  • A coach is anyone who can help or teach about an area that they know more about than their student does. This can be business, health and wellness, fitness, lifestyle, etc.

Passive Earning Opportunities

  • You can create something and sell it online. The online course industry is a powerful source of passive income.                    

Transforming Lives

  • Coaches transform lives. No matter the niche or expertise, there is an opportunity to serve others and make a difference for them.


  • Becoming a coach is a fantastic way to make a supplemental income while continuing to work a 9 to 5 if you need to stay for the benefits. You can have something that fulfills you and serves others while making additional income.


  • Good, better, best philosophy.
    • Good – $1K to $2K per month
    • Better – $5K per month
    • Best – $100K per year
  • Set your goals based on what you want to use the money for. The goals are very personal to you.
  • Decide how many hours per week you want to work.
  • If you want to make $20K per year, divide by the number of hours you want to work and you have your rate.

Getting Clients

  • Build your online presence, website, and social media.
  • Create a brand.
  • Invest in a coach to learn more about how to start a business. You will make your money back.
