In the past personal coaching was not as popular as it is now. Currently, it makes about $1 billion a year and it says a lot about the increasing needs and demands for life coaches.
The stress and pressure people get from their workspaces, homes, and even the everyday problems in their lives are accounted for this increase need for coaches.
However, there are a few people who find this industry quite questionable and there are many outlandish remarks about it. One reason may be the large amount of money the industry makes.
Another reason to point out may also be due to the inflow of individuals posing as life coaches, all because of the money they might get from the industry and not because they are qualified to do coaching.
