Being an investor and managing people’s money can be a stressful job especially when you have millions of dollars on the line. Every day financial advisers are burdened with so much responsibility that their life can become a bit overwhelming that some become riddles with anxiety and depression.
In recent years, depression has risen by 22% making it one of the most looming health epidemics not only in America, but the world. This is why some consultants and individuals working in finance are looking to an online life coach to help alleviate some of the daily stress these people are afflicted with.
What is an online life coach?
Life coaching has become synonymous with people like Tony Robbins who is a self help guru that helps people achieve their goals and live better lives. Over the years this industry has evolved to the point where now a coach is a mixture of a mentor, teacher, friend, and counselor supporting their clients in many aspects of their life.
However, because so many people lead busy lives and do not have the time to drive to an office to meet with their coach, many are now turning to an online life coach who can provide support through text, email, phone, and web conferencing. With technology improving on a daily basis, it now makes it very easy and efficient for coaches to meet with their clients from the convenience of their home or office.
Those who work in the financial industry have a great deal of work on their plates with some putting in up to twenty hours a day at their office. Because of the amount of hours that these individuals must put in, its necessary that they have someone who can support them from their office and do so on the spot.
With virtual coaching, the client can connect with their coach almost immediately by text or email helping to alleviate certain challenges they may be facing in an instant. No longer does the client have to wait a few days (or even a few hours) before getting the help they need.
Many financial firms are now even covering the costs for these coaches because they are seeing how it impacts their bottom line. Consultants and advisers who are calmer and more relaxed are churning out better work and being more available to their clients which ends up being a win win situation for everyone involved.
