Hello everyone! Thanks for taking time out of your precious schedule to visit my page!
I am in need of assistance so that I can pursue my long-felt desire to become a certified life coach and help others tap into their true potential! Life coaches help people to achieve personal and professional goals by identifying their subconscious limitations and giving them steps to overcome those limitations for permanent, positive change. It gets my heart pumped just thinking about it, I can't wait to get started!
A little about me and why I'm fundraising...
Last June I graduated from M.U.M in Fairfield, IA after 3 years of Vedic Science and 2 years of creative writing. Five years in such a school has put me into a fair amount of debt, but was a necessary step for me to learn about how to find peace within myself, and how to reflect it out into the world to make it a better place. I love writing, but it is my passion to help others and I need the proper tools to do so in a constructive way. I'm not usually one to ask for help...if I could get financial aid for this school I would, but coaching is not yet federally regulated and so the only way is to pay out of pocket.
Where I live now is a highly competitive place. I have been unable to find a job that provides me with enough hours and pay to be able to save for anything past my monthly necessities and the program starts March 20th (which is coming up very soon!). I look around and I see a lot of people stressed and depressed, I among them, and I've had enough as I'm sure they have as well. Becoming a life coach for me is the only way to live. Have you ever known with your entire being that you Had to do something? That is how I feel about this. I simply cannot do anything else.
About This Course
This 7-month long (386+ hour) course I have chosen is through iPEC (the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching) and is one of the best programs I could find. This school is accredited through the ICF (International Coach Federation) which means they have been able to meet the highest standards of quality and hours of training essential to being a full-fledged, certified Life Coach.
Because of the high quality of this program, it costs $11,950 and the reason why I'm asking for a bit more is because of the processing fees that are taken from the total amount from this website. It seems like a lot of money, but most legit programs cost around this price and aren't as well-rounded as this one. The program starts in March, but I would like to enroll no later than February 20th. The sooner I sign up the quicker I can get my materials and get a head start in my training.
This training will provide me with the tools to help others achieve more self-awareness, confidence, better communication skills that result in healthier relationships and create balance in their lives. Please help me achieve my goal, so that I can help others achieve theirs!
Every penny I get through this fundraiser will be put into my savings until the needed amount is reached, and used only for my training. The sooner I sign up, the more likely I'll be eligible for price reductions. If I signed up today they would take $300 for early enrollment and if I chose the three payment option, they will reduce it by $375.
There are a few payment options the school gave me, it can be made in...
Two payments of $5,975
Three payments of $3,983 or...
$2,000 as a down payment then $1,243.74/ month after that for 8 months.
When it's all said and done...
As perks I am offering that certain donation amounts will get free sessions from me, so in a way you're investing in your own self care. Life coaches starting out can make $100-300 per session, so donating $50 is half the cost of a session at its lowest pricing. I will also be negotiable on pricing with anyone who helps, or even those that can't, because I believe everyone should get help if they want it - not just the people who have more money.
How soon will I be able to start coaching? 85% of iPEC's students have paid clients before they finish their 7 months of training! I plan to be one of those students by diving into the materials as deeply as I can. Don't need the coaching right away? I'll have your name on a list, feel free to call on me anytime for your free session in the future.
Every little bit counts! If 1,000 people donate $3 (the price of a cup of coffee) that's $3,000. It adds up fast!
A big THANK YOU to all for reading and to those willing to help me on my special journey!
P.S. Not interested in getting help from a life coach? Is there something else that I can do for you? Need a pet sitter? Or some other kind of help? Feel free to let me know and I'll try my best to assist! Thanks again!
