The world has shifted.
Millions of people are waking up to the idea that they have the ability to take powerful steps to create the changes they want to see.
A new profession is on the rise, a profession whose sole mission is to help people to step courageously into this life they want to live.
Smart coaches are stepping up and claiming their place in the new Learning Economy.
You, too, are in the right place at the right time to take advantage of this opportunity. People who become life coaches now will be the coaching leaders of tomorrow.
It used to be that ordinary people had no chance of working personally with a highly trained coach. It was seen as a luxury. All this is changing.
Coaching is going mainstream, and millions of new clients all over the world are looking to coaches to help improve their results and their lives.
Eleven years ago, Facebook was a little-known website for college students. If you told someone you were a Facebook specialist, they might smirk. Today Facebook has 2.23 billion users and is one of the primary ways that people connect worldwide.
Twenty-five years ago, Yoga was a little-understood fringe “Eastern” practice. Today it is a $38 Billion dollar annual economy in the U.S. alone (bigger than all book sales combined) and is considered the new standard in personal health.
Fifteen years ago, alternative health practices were often scoffed at by medical professionals. Now, practices like Chinese Medicine, Acupuncture, Massage Therapy and Meditation are avidly studied by Western Medicine for their health benefits.
Each of these professions created thriving, successful careers for hundreds of thousands of lucky practitioners who were in the right place at the right time.
This is a massive trend.
Just a few years ago, when I told someone I was a life coach, they’d ask, “What is that?”
No more. Coaching is seeing a remarkable surge in public awareness.
People are learning what coaching is. People are recognizing that they want results in their life. Coaches are cropping up in TV shows and mainstream media.
Consider just a few examples:
Legendary authors like Elizabeth Gilbert (“Eat Pray Love”) and current bestselling author Jen Sincero (“You are a Badass”) are best-selling, respected thought leaders… but they prefer to think of themselves as coaches.
The popular TV show The Voice features A-list pop stars and music producers such as Adam Levine, Kelly Clarkson, and Jennifer Hudson happily referring to themselves as coaches.
The award-winning show Billions has an Executive Coach in a pivotal starring role, counseling the billionaire company owner.
This is just the tip of the iceberg.
You see, every profession has a “tipping point” where it suddenly becomes mainstream – and desirable to hundreds of millions of new clients.
So next time you have to explain what coaching is, remember: you’re on the right side of history.
Consider some of the incredible business advantages you get to enjoy as a coach – real “game changers.”
Most career changes involve risk, in that you have to leave your current workplace in order to start your new career.
This is not the case for coaching. There are many ways to add coaching to your life on your own schedule without taking any career risks.
Most businesses require a sizable financial investment to start.
Usually you have to rent a place, purchase goods and equipment, pay fees, and in some cases, invest in an online infrastructure. Coaching does NOT need that. Why?
Because all you need to deliver your service is a) your client and b) your coaching skills.
Don’t believe the hype – most successful coaches do not use fancy marketing techniques.
You get to design your coaching practice around your life.
Do you like to keep several days of the week completely free for your other pursuits?
Do you like to work until 11am every day and have the rest of the day for other things?
Do you like to keep a whole week free every month?
It’s up to you.
Whether you have another profession, a full family life, or creative projects you want to work on, coaching gives you the time freedom to grow and develop yourself.
A major trend in the world today is that you can work long distance, or work from home. As a coach, you can take full advantage of this trend.
You can see your clients from an in-person office if you prefer…
but you can also work your clients from any location on the planet.
You can take long trips, live in two different locations, and work with clients who live all over the world without this ever affecting your coaching schedule.
As the internet transforms our social and cultural life, an opportunity is arising for a new generation of thought leaders, authors, speakers, and teachers. Many people are wondering: how do I get there?
The strongest way to become a transformational leader is to become a coach first. After all, you’re supposed to create transformations, right?
Coaching gives you the skills to create positive change in people, a strong knowledge of human nature, and a working confidence in helping anybody.
If you’re an author or speaker, coaching gives you stories of transformation from your own professional experience, which you can share with your public.
Businesswise, coaching also enables you a way to start a speaking or writing career for free, because you know every speaking gig will yield you paying coaching clients.
Note: most coaches are thrilled to have a bustling private practice and never need to become a seminar leader or speaker. Coaching is its own distinct profession, and you never have to do public speaking unless you feel drawn to it.
However, if you have your sights on becoming a transformational leader, coaching is a great way there.
Imagine that you are going back to school for a career that is purposeful, flexible, creative, in high demand, and yields $150-$250 per session starting rate, with room to grow to a six or seven figure practice.
To get that kind of career, would you go to school for one year? Two years? Three?
This may surprise you: coaching does not require previous schooling. You can get trained, certified, and start practicing within 60 days.
The reason why coaches can start working so soon after training is that coaching is based on certain interpersonal skills that you probably already have.
People who become coaches are usually caring, interested in people, positive, sensitive, and resourceful. You don’t have to learn these qualities in your training. Your coach training activates your inner strengths and teaches you proven coaching strategies that you can use with confidence.
Coaches typically work internationally. This means that you can have paying coaching clients all over the planet. It also means that you are no longer limited by the earning potential of your local economy.
Beginner coaches in the U.S. typically charge $1800 for a 12 week coaching package. Now, let’s do the math.
3 coaching sessions per day = $450 per day
That’s $2250 per week, or $9,000 per month… or $117,000 per year!
Coaches don’t have to use complicated marketing systems to sign up clients. You don’t need an email list, podcast, book, videos, or any other elaborate content.
When considering a career in coaching, it’s important to be clear about what you want in a coach training.
For instance, you want to make sure you work directly with master teachers and a methodology that resonates with you.
Over the past 17 years, we’ve trained 1.5 million people on a community level, and have personally certified over 15,000 coaches. Nobody else in the industry has the experience we have training coaches.
You name it, we’ve seen it!
So, after many years of testing and refining, we’ve arrived at the world’s most effective accelerated coach training system.
We know it’s effective because, within a short time, every graduate who wants paying clients gets paying clients.
It doesn’t matter whether you’re new to this type of work or an experienced helping professional. The system works either way.
The system is called Activation™ Method Online Coach Training.
It consists of four different trainings that work synergistically to give you absolutely everything you need to succeed in your practice.
For instance, students at every single Coaching Boot Camp have gotten paying clients before the three day training is even over.
Here are just two of many recent examples.
Shita travelled all the way from India for Boot Camp. She got her first paying client in a cab on Day 3 of the event.
Corey had zero coaching experience prior to Boot Camp. Midway through the training, he got his first client.
The reason our students find success so quickly is that we don’t just teach you coaching – we activate your coaching abilities.
So, if you’re looking to become a life coach, and things haven’t clicked for you, let this sink in for a moment…
In the right learning environment, you’ll be coaching within a few minutes.
Within a few hours, you’ll have genuine confidence in your abilities.
And within a few days, you’ll feel ready for clients.
That’s what makes our students so successful!
So if you want to become a confident, prosperous coach with a full roster of high paying clients…
Board Certified Coach Credential (B.C.C.)
This is the world’s most prestigious third-party professional coaching credential, issued by the Center for Credentialing and Education. This means that when you complete Activation Method, you’ll be able to take the B.C.C. exam – and be able to put the letters B.C.C. after your name.
Within the first hour of Boot Camp you’ll be in the flow of coaching.
You’ll be in the comfort of your own home, but you’ll be getting an intensive training in coaching people online:
By the end of Boot Camp you will be so thoroughly practiced in coaching people, you will know to the core of your being that you’re ready to coach paying clients right now.
At the end of Boot Camp we ask graduates to commit to getting a paying client within 30 days – and they do!
As an Activation™ Method coach, you get your own coaching practice website, done for you. It comes with everything you need – design, writing, a logo confirming you’re a graduate of Activation™ Method Online Coach. All you need to add is your photo. It comes to you as an editable html file that any web person can set up quickly for you. The headache of developing your own site is over!

Around this time last year, two coaches were sitting in front of their computers, contemplating a training to become a professional coach. They were very much alike, these two coaches.
Both of them had years of life experience helping and supporting those around them. “You should become a coach,” their friends said. And, for years, they shook their heads and agreed. Finally they were about to take the leap and use their talents to become a professional working coach.
Both of them made the plunge and invested in a coach training program. They opened up their online training portal. They dug into the videos, audios. They got on group phone training calls. For months, they lived and breathed coaching. And both of them looked forward to a time, not too far away, where they would impact the world by changing the lives of their coaching clients.
The other is still at home, alone, listening to audios, watching videos, wondering whether to buy another training… and whether their opportunity to become coach has already passed them by.
Whenever we complete a Coaching Boot Camp, we start hearing about students who went home and got lucrative coaching contracts right away. Now how is that possible? Is one week enough time to start a coach marketing campaign? Doesn’t seem likely, right? Why do they start getting clients right away?
Here’s one of the secrets of successful coaches: when you have confidence in your coaching, you find clients everywhere. After all, where do you think the people live… the people who urgently want some improvement in their lives? All around us, right? When our students come home from Coaching Boot Camp, they find their first paying students had been nearby all along.
The problem is that when you lack confidence as a coach, you develop “client blindness.” You don’t see the opportunities. Even when you do help people around you, you don’t see the opportunity to sign them up as clients! Show me a coach who says they “can’t find clients,” and I’ll show you a coach who lacks faith in their own abilities.
Getting your confidence as a coach is like putting on “X Ray Glasses.” When you know you can help clients, you see clients everywhere. Because clients are everywhere! When you lacked confidence, you couldn’t see them, but that changes when you get your confidence.
Successful coaches see the opportunity to help. And when they’re helping someone, smart coaches know how to transition somebody to paid client status. This will become a well-practice process for you. Prospective clients become paid clients. And it’s a win-win. When a successful coach sees funds coming into their bank account, they know this is just a side effect of their clients’ happiness and gratitude.
Which do you want to focus on? Do you want to stay in the bubble, or do you want to experience living proof that you are a working coach and capable of transforming lives?
No. Coaching Boot Camp is a complete immersive coach training and will help you make massive progress, starting exactly where you are.
The opposite is true. Coaching Boot Camp is designed to accelerate you. If you’ve been studying coaching or personal growth, it’s likely that you’ve been absorbing information without being able to practice it and process it! Our students report massive progress in developing their coaching careers, and this energy helps them complete their other trainings.
All you have to do is log into a good internet connection in a location where you can focus and do coaching. Coaching Boot Camp takes place for three days, 9am – 6pm California time. All you have to do is show up to get the results.
Tony and Cloe are our longtime collaborators and valued partners at Robbins-Madanes Training. However, Coaching Boot Camp is a private training with Mark and Magali and has no business affiliation with Robbins-Madanes.
NLP, or Neurolinguistic Programming is a pre-coaching practice that was based on certain strategies of Dr. Milton Erickson. Our tradition of Strategic Intervention goes back to the roots of Erickson’s most effective work. Therefore, some of the Ericksonian principles found in NLP (in our opinion the most valuable parts of NLP) are also found in Strategic Intervention Coaching and taught at Coaching Boot Camp.
