At Health Coach Institute, we pride ourselves on offering a world-class Life Coaching education that sets you up for maximum personal and professional success. We want our students to have all the tools and knowledge they need, while also experiencing a strong sense of community, fun, and engagement from our entire team—both during their training and after they’ve launched their career.

One of the ways we offer unique insight into our vision and educational experience here at HCI is through our Better Than Ever podcast. As the name indicates, the goal of our podcast is to help make our students’ HCI training experiences, careers, and lives better than ever.

The podcast features:

  • Members of the HCI team (including regular guest appearances by HCI co-founders, Stacey Morgenstern and Carey Peters, and other leadership and faculty)
  • Our grads’ incredible transformation stories and personal successes
  • Candid chats with industry experts
  • Advice for everything from money tips to trusting your intuition to finding love

…and lots more.
We’ve coached more than 10,000 clients from more than 70 countries, and the Better Than Ever podcast is one of our favorite ways to share what we’ve learned along the way and give you a taste of what our school can teach you.

If you’re just starting to explore Life Coach schools, we highly encourage you to give the episode below a listen. It features self-proclaimed “Bold, Badass Life Coach” Kathy Murphy—and we think you’ll find her story seriously inspiring.

Kathy Murphy: Bold and Bada$$ Life

The Life Coach School: The Personal Cost of Training

One of the things we love most about having a Life Coach school podcast is hearing the powerful and inspiring stories that set someone on the path to becoming a Life Coach. Kathy’s story is nothing short of amazing and a perfect example of what happens when you give in to the process and allow yourself to be personally transformed!

When Kathy found Health Coach Institute and our Life Coaching school, she’d been through a lot. She’d overcome Lyme disease, cancer, and arthritis; been divorced; and dealt with the care and death of both her parents. After almost working herself to death for 37 years in a service career, she was laid off. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg! She shares a lot more of her personal journey on the podcast.

One thing is definite, though. When Kathy found Carey and Stacey, she had no idea how much her life would change.

Kathy enrolled in HCI’s program and says she could never have expected the transformation she would undergo. She originally set out to help people who were dealing with the same illnesses she’d overcome, but in the process of becoming a Life Coach, Kathy’s true purpose evolved.

You see, Kathy has never been one to shy away from a challenge. But sometimes this resulted in making a mess of things and working too much. There were times she was working 12-16 hours a day, every day. She was doing good work, but it wasn’t healthy.

Through her Life Coach training, she learned that her greatest opponent was inside—her own limiting beliefs were making her think this was just how her life would be. As her awareness of what she needed to change in her life increased, she felt herself getting closer and closer to what was supposed to be her true path.

The personal “cost” Kathy paid was facing her own limiting beliefs and turning them around!

Kathy’s episode is a must-listen for anyone who is considering becoming a Life Coach, but this story plays itself out over and over again in the stories we hear on our podcast. We’ve heard from coaches who’ve saved people’s lives, started businesses, transformed their physical health, and so much more!

It’s clear that as much as Life Coaches help clients, they are also transformed in the process!

The Power of Life Coach Training to Change the World

Today, Kathy is the Bold, BadAss Life Coach. She helps other women transform their lives and inspires them to be bold badasses—strong on the outside, and integrating their power within and their inner voice.

Kathy’s story is just one example of the power Life Coaches can have on their clients’ lives. For more inspiring stories, be sure to check out our Life Coach school podcast regularly.
