    Is this another fancy word for a mentor??

    Why do people need life coaches? curious

    Anyone used one?

    Who would make a perfect life coach?

    How do you interview someone for this if you planned to use one/life coach that is?

    MTR:)

    I have ? (question mark) for all the above.

    OK call me a cynic but there are too many people in this world passing themselves off as all of the above but if they don't have a track record of success then what are they really selling.

    I have a friend who provides mediation for couples who have marriage problems, however she has never been married, her relationships have all failed yet she provides advice at $120 per hour. Been doing this for years now, makes a great living, works when she wants and loves her lifestyle. Also studying art therapy, another useless course, but seems people are interested in this one too.

    I think hilarious how some people can wing it and really know very little. Amazing stuff really

    @MTR I agree with you that probably many/most of the mentors/coaches/advisors advertising are quite useless with probably zero to a very minimal track record. But I also believe there definitely are a those very few who are genuine successes and have good value to offer some clients.

    I really dislike that entire industry. They try to define principles they do not yet understand then try to teach them to other people as if there was a way to.

    I'd like to take this opportunity to acknowledge the two most important life coaches I've benefited from.

    Mum, Dad, you're both awesome.

    MTR - should I change my profile picture to this? Taken at Flinders med centre 20 years ago, real syringe real blood, I think I was about to centrifuge it to collect the lymphocytes or something. :)
    My gosh I miss those days, the fun, the research, the trips around the world, the parties, the men :)

    wives and girlfriends- generally of sport players. Renown around the world for having everything from shoulders down, but absolutely nothing above...hence needing hired help to get thru life and thus a life coach...no offense to anyone.

    This seminar was a lot of FUN. I loved doing this and the conferences were amazing. I'm still in touch with all the amazing people I met while doing this seminar and all the others I did on motivational speaking. I still do it, I wrote two books on life expansion and the areas of success psychology - all of it is my own work, research and observations.

    Here are the books: Books Written by Owners - Alexa Real Estate anyone want a PDF copy please send me an email - below, I would be happy to give you one absolutely complimentary.

    I read people well and studying success principles and mindset is my biggest passion in life. I love it, writing 3rd book now. '
    However I have never been involved in life coaching.
