#97: Financial Coaching vs Life Coaching

Season #1

Join Josh and Emily as they discuss the Venn diagram of financial coaching and life coaching. How do they overlap, what similarities and differences there are…and do the words “life coaching” even mean anything…?

Top takeaways:

  1. It’s impossible to draw any hard and fast lines between the two.
  2. “Life coach” is so vague as to be completely useless.
  3. Successful “life coaches” have niched down to the point where they’re career coaches or relationship coaches or parenting coaches etc.
  4. If you’re looking to expand your soft skills around counseling, look for classes in a university extension program rather than life coaching courses.
