Do people tell you you're encouraging? Do you find that you enjoy giving people helpful advice and boosting their confidence? Then you might consider becoming a confidence coach.
This rapidly expanding business takes several forms. Some people specialize in coaching certain types of people (such as entrepreneurs) or age groups (such as teens). Following are some examples of what a confidence coach is and what he or she does, and some tips on becoming one.
What Is a Confidence Coach?
A confidence coach is someone who makes a living at encouraging others and boosting their self-confidence. Confidence coaches give their clients tips on how to think positively and discover their gifts and talents, and they help their clients identify what situations cause them to lose confidence. 
A confidence coach then gives tips and training to his or her clients to help them overcome their low confidence. The coach helps clients to identify where they have confidence trouble, and to face that "glitch" and overcome it.
Another thing confidence coaches may do is help clients identify goals, both short- and long-term. Ultimately, confidence coaches want to see their clients achieve success in life.
How Do Confidence Coaches Do What They Do?
There are several approaches you can take as a confidence coach. For example:
* Social Media is a popular way for confidence coaches to reach their clients. Growing your business online is a great way for exposure.  You can do this through video, lives, and inspirational posts.
* Online tutorials, to which clients can subscribe, are another visual medium through which confidence coaches can help their clients. 
* eBooks and written guides help confidence coaches sell their message to clients while still having a personal connection with them.
* Phone calls, personal emails, online chats, and live video are some personal ways that confidence coaches can connect with their clients. 

Confidence Coaching
Is a great way for you to grow as an individual and support other as well.  To become a successful coach, you must be able to help client’s success and the only way to do that is for you to success.  You cannot give anything you do not have.  You may have come to believe that you do not need support, but we all need someone who can help us go that extra mile.  There is no need to go at it alone when you can have a cheerleader in your corner.
