After almost 2.5 years at a top-tier 2 firm (Oliver Wyman), I am leaving my job in the next 2 months. Although I have been consistently ranked top performer, I feel that the overall conditions (extreme workload post-covid, unreasonable partner demands, etc) are just not my fit at this moment. Besides, I have had several health problems in the past months and that was a key factor to make me look for a permanent career change.
Although I have some industry offers, to be frank, I really love consulting and working with people and, after having been heavily involved on recruiting tasks at my firm, I was thinking about moving to the coaching business full-time. I do feel that combining my work ethic with the freedom of working for myself, this could be a really interesting option.
Hence, I am looking for opinions on how to make of PrepLounge Coaching a full-time gig, given that I have not coached (for money) in the past and I am a bit afraid of how hard is to “get traction” and “get clients” in the beginning. Besides, for all the full time coaches here, I would love to hear about your routine and how you divide your time between tasks: creating cases, reviewings cv's/cover letters, doing mock interviews, etc.
Thanks a lot!
