What Coaching Niche Should You Specialize In?

Wainwright Global recommends the following:

• Coach in a genre that you are passionate about

• Don’t take on more than 3 different coaching niches when you start out

• Do consider the marketing efforts required for each genre you choose to take on

• Do consider the financial capability of the individuals you choose to be your main bread and butter clients.

Take a look at over 50 coaching niches. Take a moment with each one and see if there is a particular niche that calls to you; that seems like something you could do. What feels good to you?
