Anyone made the switch from a traditional path to being a professional career coach? While I do enjoy the tax compliance part of my work, I think my real strength and passion is in the people: mentoring, motivating, helping people to think about and set a plan to achieve their goals. Does career coaching seem like a good fit? Any advice on where to start?

I did. And I’ve helped several accountants make this shift. Email me if you want to chat. There’s a lot of different coach trainings- some legit, some bogus; some for teams, some for coaching individuals; some spiritual, some (boring) business and scientific. My email is DO get ICF certified. DON’T call yourself a coach without real training. We are experiencing a mental health crisis and it helps to have a professional code of ethics at times like these.


i’m in this field and you can absolutely thrive in coaching, i agree with amber


I’m also a certified coach, happy to chat!

My current role is hybrid with at least two days a week in office. However, with the potential economic downturn, I'm considering holding on to the role to supplement my income.

I'm new to the overemployed movement, so I'm evaluating the feasibility of holding onto the hybrid role and the remote position.

Siegfried Group -
I had an initial call with a recruiter and got turned down about 6-7 months ago. I was having a really bad day (just found out a relative had passed, more than normal work stress, ect) and just really had a tough time gathering my thoughts. I honestly should have rescheduled the call but I just didn’t really want to have to push it out and coordinate schedules again. Any chance I can get a second look? The career path aligns with my interests and my background is a great fit.
