8 Must Reads for Starting a Coaching Business

picture of flowers, book, and a cup of tea

As a Life Coach, I can safely say I have read a lot of books- to not only learn about the necessary skills required for life coaching, but also to learn how to set up an online business. I have found that there are so many more skills needed to craft your art as a coach besides getting certified and setting up a website! Honestly there have been very few reads that I found helpful and would recommend. The ones I love, I’ve listed here to help you on your journey of entrepreneurship as a coach or consultant.



  • 2. SuperCoach: 10 Secrets to Transform Anyone’s Life
    by Michael Neillsupercoach

    I recently signed up for Michael Neill’s online newsletter because I find his material so positive and inspirational. This next book is one I will actually buy as a gift for other coaches because it offers such a great perspective from an experienced master in the industry.






  • 6. Beyond Goals: Effective Strategies for Coaching and Mentoring
    by Susan David, Ph.D, David Clutterbuck, and David Megginson

    cover beyond goals
    I also discovered Susan David on Youtube, much to my surprise. I was looking for subject matter on emotions and up popped her TED talk about emotional agility and resilience.Millions of global views later, she is becoming one of the leading voices in Emotional Intelligence as a psychologist, author, speaker and researcher.  I am so pleased to see her voice, wisdom and research being heard.  Way to go Susan!Watch the TED talk, The gift and power of emotional courage, on YouTube.


And there’s the list! And I’m sure there are so many more books to add to this list. If you have some you’d like to share, feel free to add them in the comment section below.
