If you’ve thought about becoming a Life Coach, the timing couldn’t be better. Today, more people than ever before seek out Life Coaches to help them live their best, boldest lives.

Could Life Coaching be the right career path for you? Beyond the intrinsic rewards of helping people make compelling changes in their lives, you can earn a respectable salary as a Life Coach.

Certified Life Coach Salary

Let’s get right to the biggest question many people have when exploring this career: How much do Life Coaches make? According to an extensive survey conducted by the International Coaching Federation (ICF), Life Coach income, such as a Holistic Life Coach salary, varies based on several factors, including certifications and experience level. On average, though, Life Coaches in North America earn about $61,900 per year.

How Much Does a Life Coach Make?

The ICF survey figures include only revenue derived from actual coaching activities, but another source says Life Coaches can earn over $200,000 per year in the U.S., depending on things like how many other products and services they offer. To calculate a potential Life Coach salary, you have to look beyond just the coaching income to include other potential revenue streams, as well.
