I have been laid off going on three months now from a company that I worked for over 18 years. My job searching has not been as successful as I hoped. I have never not had a job or anyone else to depend on financially so this very uncomfortable situation has me feeling hopeless. I have been on so many emotional ups and downs these past three months, I am starting to feel like a roller coaster.
In an effort not to constantly focus on the negative aspect of my situation I am trying to focus on something positive in it and allow that focus to be the light to lead me out of this darkness.
I would say that the one positive thing that I have discovered about my situation is that it has forced me to finally admitted that I wasn’t happy and that I was in a dead-end unfulfilling job. It has made me realize more than ever that it’s time for me to pursue work that is more in line with my passions and life purpose which is to help others in their life struggles.
Becoming a life coach has been a thought of mine for a several years now so I thought now is the time to make it happen. This would require training which is fine, I am okay with that but every program that I find comes with a very huge price tag attached to it and it would take time to complete my studies which at this point, time is not so much on my side anymore (financially) speaking. Even though there are many other ways to help people without becoming a life coach, I feel that this is a good fit for me. It allows me to help people like I want as well as earn a living for myself.
So, my question for you ladies is how does one generate money in this harsh world of job searching to pay the bills and at the same time pay for training to become a life coach. I would like to say thank you in advance for anyone who decided to read my story to the end.
