So, you’re in the beginning stages of taking your experience, training, and passion and striking out on your own.

You want to become a coach, influencer, best-selling author, or host your own show.

You know you’ve got what it takes.

You’ve been pondering it, mulling it over, going through all the pros-and-cons … for how long now?

It’s just that you can’t quite decide on your angle, your ideal client, or your specific niche.

Let’s see if we can gain some focus by looking at what type of coaching business would align with you … by Life Path number.

If you don’t know your Life Path number, CLICK HERE.

And if you’re super-serious, I advise to look at your full numerology profile. Yet if you only look at one other number with your Life Path, I urge you to also read for your Destiny (or Expression) number.

If you don’t know your Destiny or Expression number, CLICK HERE.

If you’re an Astrology fan, it’s like reading for both your Sun Sign and your Rising Sign.

Yet for simplicity, the Life Path determines your overall life’s purpose.

1 Life Path: The Innovative Leader

Your over-all purpose is to develop and master innovative creativity, self-confidence, independence, originality, and achievement.

As a 1 Life Path, your niche has anything and everything to do with innovative concepts and ideas. “Thought Leader” applies directly to you, dear 1 Life Path! As a coach, you excel with showing people:

  • How to take calculated risks
  • How to develop and act upon their creative voice, unique personalities, and off-beat ideas
  • How to trust their instincts and express their authenticity

Possible points of power:

  • Sharing your story (stories?) of failure, co-dependence, or addictions to lead others out of self-sabotaging behaviors
  • Training people how to secure investors and backing for larger projects
  • Supporting entrepreneurs through all facets of the entrepreneurial process

Random thought: The 1 Life Path can coach or advise on any subject with which they have expertise. Leadership is your trademark, therefore you can teach leadership, be the leader, or coach others about how to understand the entrepreneurial process.

Be aware of jumping from thing to thing before you have time to gain traction.

2 Life Path: The Loving Mediator

Your overall purpose is to learn and express the power of love while maintaining harmony, balance, cooperation, and diplomacy.

As a 2 Life Path, your niche has anything and everything to do with team building, relationships, or intuitive development. You want and need group alliances and thrive in a co-creative and co-operative environment—or in this case, you thrive when you create that environment yourself!

As a coach, you excel with showing people:

  • How to develop and understand their intuition—training for certain kinds of healing, energy, or esoteric modalities
  • How to learn the fine art of diplomacy and mediation—you can train people directly in the legal fields, therapists, or any other field where mediation and emotional intelligence is needed
  • How to start and run their own virtual assistant business—coaching others how to support a business, build systems, and navigate personalities

Possible points of power:

  • Sharing your routines and methods for psychic self-protection and setting healthy and well-defined boundaries
  • Training people how to meditate, do energy work, be a medium/intuitive/psychic, or any other metaphysical art
  • Supporting clients with therapeutic support of your choosing—grief support, women’s circles, men’s groups, book clubs, networking events, support for seniors, support for children, support for animals

Random thought: The 2 Life Path is often a gifted designer—interior design, jewelry, or other kinds of design. Find people who support your vision and offer practical help and support as you build your practice. The 2 often can “sell” other people yet have a hard time selling themselves and their own services. You’ll also learn how to value your services and not give yourself away.

Be aware of isolating yourself—you need to be involved with people in order to thrive.

11/2 Life Path: The Inspired Healer

Your overall life purpose is to become an inspired healer, artistic force, and spiritual catalyst. Please read the description of the 1 and 2 Life Path, because that is the foundational energy that defines your life’s purpose. You can see yourself as two parts 1 and one part 2!

Read for the 1 and the 2.

3 Life Path: The Creative Communicator

Your overall purpose is to develop creative self-expression, emotional sensitivity, joy, optimism, and inspired communication.

As a 3 Life Path, your niche has anything and everything to do with presenting, performing, teaching, counseling, writing, and communicating. Chances are, you’ll be puzzling together pieces of your vast experience and expertise and putting it back together as something new and relevant for your coaching practice.

As a coach, you excel with showing people:

  • How to heal and get beyond emotional trauma
  • How to develop their own creativity and act upon it
  • How to trust themselves and gain mastery over indecision, self-doubt, and insecurity

Possible points of power:

  • Sharing your experience with emotional trauma as a bridge to others being able to express themselves authentically
  • Training people how to master their art (voice coaching, actors coaching, dance coaching, art coaching)
  • Supporting people through emotional connection, wit and humor, and heart-felt communication

Random thought: The mantra for the 3 Life Path is: “When you’re laughing, you’re learning.” The 3 is gifted with words and also with emotional intelligence and can infuse this into any topic—from accounting to songwriting.

Be aware of the need for structure and a solid business plan. The 3 succeeds when they take themselves and their coaching business seriously, rather than treating it as an expensive hobby!

4 Life Path: The Hard-Working Systems Builder

Your overall purpose is to develop systems and processes that bring you security and stability. You’re result-oriented and derive satisfaction as you work tenaciously to achieve your goals.

As a 4 Life Path, your niche has anything and everything to do with teaching on any subject with which you have expertise. The 4 is best at formulating repeatable systems and practical processes.

As a coach, you excel with showing people:

  • How to deal with the nuts-and-bolts of their business or enterprise

  • How to get serious about bringing their passion or hobby into a financially viable business

  • Supporting people in developing and instituting the right systems to make their lives better

Random thought: The 4 Life Path can find their niche with healing family, sexual, or ancestral trauma. The 4 also is a great coach for the artisan—photography, calligraphy, musical instruments, vocal coaching. The 4 is the number of health and can be drawn to the medical field, holistic medicine, personal training, diet/nutrition/exercise.

Be aware of micromanaging and doing everything yourself as you build your practice—get support or assistance for what you’d rather not do.

22/4 Life Path: The Master Builder

Your overall life’s purpose is to become a master teacher and change people’s lives in a practical and tangible way. Please read the description of the 2 and 4 Life Paths, because that is the foundational energy that defines your life’s purpose. You can see yourself as two parts 2 and one part 4!

Read for both the 2 and the 4.

5 Life Path: The Sensuous Freedom Seeker

Your overall purpose is to develop fearlessness, adventurousness, resilience, versatility, to become an agent of change, and to embrace changing circumstances. Your ultimate endgame is the constructive use of freedom.

As a 5 Life Path, your niche has anything and everything to do with … anything you want! The 5 is a bit of a wild card and is versatile and forward-thinking. As a coach, the 5 is often drawn to something that allows substantial leeway around what you do and how you do it.

As a coach, you excel with showing people:

  • How to understand and work with fear and self-limiting behaviors
  • How to develop a sense of adventure
  • How to trust and use life experience to positively inform their future rather than to limit their future

Possible points of power:

  • Sharing your personal experience and the lessons learned—think of Russell Brand, whom I’m guessing wouldn’t categorize himself as a coach, yet uses his history of addition as a platform for helping others
  • Training people how to think outside of the box
  • Supporting people with your multi-levels of experience and showing them how to create levels of freedom on any level—emotional freedom, sexual freedom, financial freedom, physical freedom, et al

Random thought: The 5 Life Path is often drawn to delve the depths of the ultimate freedom: enlightenment. In this case, with metaphysics—yoga, meditation, “out there” forms of spiritual development. Yet the 5 can also coach people with business, finance, travel, language, aviation—you name it. Brené Brown has a 5 Life Path and has proved to be a powerful voice in the discussion about shame and vulnerability. She also speaks of her addiction to alcohol as one of her connecting talking and teaching points.

Be aware of abandoning your practice before you even really get started.

6 Life Path: The Nurturing Visionary

Your overall purpose is to develop your nurturing presence, balance responsibility, acceptance, service to others, and visionary pursuits.

As a 6 Life Path, your niche has anything and everything to do with family, design, relationships, social justice, or artistic pursuits. The 6 is a natural coach and counselor—it’s a matter of honing in on what is most near and dear to you.

As a coach, you excel with showing people:

  • How to heal and nurture their relationships—with themselves, family, intimate partnership
  • How to develop healthy boundaries
  • How to trust their visionary capabilities and act on them with productive results

Possible points of power:

  • Sharing your passion with others as you assist them in the development of their passions
  • Training people how to let go of control and perfectionism
  • Supporting people in a therapeutic way through grief, relationship upheaval, or family-related issues—a focus on seniors, children, or animals is a natural fit for the 6

Random thought: The 6 Life Path contains some interesting elements insofar as your talents for coaching. You can be the creative and artistic 6, the business and finance-focused 6, the home-and-family 6, or even the justice-oriented 6. Just know that your forté is lodged in your supportive and nurturing demeanor.

Be aware that you benefit when you “start before you’re ready.” Sometimes the 6 Life Path hesitates launching your coaching business because it isn’t absolutely all figured out and “perfect.” (Spoiler alert: It never will be perfect! Go for it!)

7 Life Path: The Analyst and (sometimes reluctant) Spiritualist

Your overall purpose is to develop your intuition, spirituality, trust, and openness, balanced against your desire for data-driven analysis.

As a 7 Life Path, your niche has anything and everything to do with healing, intuitive development, or analysis of any kind. The 7 is drawn to both the metaphysical and also to intellectual pursuits.

As a coach, you excel with showing people:

  • How to learn to meditate
  • How to develop spiritual practices for daily life
  • How to trust their intuition

Possible points of power:

  • Sharing your vast knowledge of spiritual practices or your specific expertise with anything of your choosing
  • Training people how to connect with their own healing abilities or to heal themselves
  • Supporting people through personal/professional/spiritual crisis

Random thought: The 7 Life Path can coach on any subject, yet is often drawn to yoga and spiritual practices. The 7 often finds themselves working with mystery food sensitivities or health issues in their own lives, which opens the door to coaching in these areas. Becoming a “traditional” therapist or counselor isn’t out of the question, yet the 7 will often infuse other modalities into the mix (from past-life regression to EMDR). The 7 can also be drawn to fashion, make-up, and other aspects of the aesthetic arts.

Be aware of over-thinking and trust your vision and your process.

8 Life Path: The Material Manifestor

Your overall purpose is to develop an empowered relationship with money, power, control, and authority.

As an 8 Life Path, your niche has anything and everything to do with finances, career, and empowerment. The 8 is a powerhouse and yet often has many experiences with disempowerment along the way. The 8 coach is gifted with showing others how to step into their power.

  • How to understand, develop, and embrace individual levels of power and empowerment
  • How to develop a positive relationship with money and finances
  • How to trust going after bigger dreams and not selling themselves short

Possible points of power:

  • Sharing your wisdom about how to step up and stand up for yourself
  • Training people how to get real about how to create financial abundance
  • Supporting people and their development of taking control of—and responsibility for—their lives

Random thought: The 8 Life Path is usually all business, so that is a niche that’s yours for the taking. The 8 might find themselves drawn to working with those with addictions or with other issues like emotional/physical/sexual abuse. While the 8 is all about money and finances, it’s also about power and empowerment, from the ground up.

Be aware that you need to practice the utmost integrity and ethics in your coaching business.

9 Life Path: The Compassionate Humanitarian

Your overall purpose is to develop your spirituality, humanitarianism, creativity, wisdom, and integrity.

As a coach, you excel with showing people:

  • How to tap into off-beat ideas or modalities in order to expand their reach either personally or in business
  • How to follow their hearts and make a difference in the world
  • How to trust and embrace the quirky or weird about themselves and make it work for them

Possible points of power:

  • Sharing your unbridled passion and enthusiasm about how to infuse “giving back” into everything they do
  • Training people how to develop their spiritual connection
  • Supporting people to proactively act upon whatever service-oriented product or service they would like to bring to the world

Random thought: The 9 Life Path can be an amazing cheerleader for others and are able to see the gifts and talents other people don’t even know they have! Often the 9 excels with “hands-off” or seminar/lecture-based coaching. Sometimes the 9 enjoys one-on-one, yet often they are better at offering what they know in a format that is more “teaching” than “coaching.” Think about 9 Life Path’s Greta Thunberg, Malala Yousafzai, or even Jim Carrey.

Be aware that you draw people as clients when you share your personal vulnerability.
