Portland, Oregon (PressExposure) May 23, 2007 -- Registration is now open for career coaches and aspiring career coaches from around the U.S. to gather in Portland, Oregon for Career Coach Instituteâs first ever Career Coaching Boot Camp. Slated for Friday, June 22, 2007, this event will gather over 100 career coaches from around North America to get first-time access to the âCareer Infopreneurâs Success Roadmap,â a process for business building and the title of Marcia Benchâs forthcoming book. Career coaching is one of the most in-demand niches in the coaching industry, since 25 percent of executives change jobs each year, and the average worker makes 10 to 14 career changes in his/her lifetime, according to the US Department of Labor. In addition, AARP found that nearly 70 percent of Baby Boomers plan on working into retirement, so this event is timely for anyone wishing to start or grow a coaching business.
The Boot Camp Leader is Master Certified Career Coach Marcia Bench, author of 18 career books including Career Coaching: An Insiderâs Guide. Bench directs the Career Coach Institute at [http://www.careercoachinstitute.com] and has spoken at over 500 conferences and events during her 20 years as a speaker, author, and career coach. In just 7 years, she went from struggling to get clients each month to earning over $35,000 a month - and in Portland she will reveal how she did it and provide a âroadmapâ to the process in her new book, also being released in June. Full details on the event can be found at [http://www.careercoachingbootcamp.com]
Though coaching is a new industry, it is clearly here to stay. Entrepreneur Magazine cited coaching as one of the top home-based business to start and Money Magazine ranks coaching as the second fastest growing profession next to management consulting. In fact, one recent study done by Harvard Business School revealed that the approximate annual worldwide revenue produced by coaching is $1.5 billion (USD).
âIf you have ever considered becoming a coach, or are struggling to gain clients or fill your practice, you canât afford to miss this event!â says Marcia Bench. At the Boot Camp, Bench will share her 9-step Career Infopreneurâs Success Roadmap to help participants coach more powerfully, make more money online and generate huge profits...even while on vacation.
Representatives from service providers related to career coaching such as resume writers, web developers, networking experts, publicity specialists, podcasting experts, and more will also be appearing at this event.
Among the topics to be covered in this Boot Camp are:
Implement only a handful of these ideas and you'll still be miles ahead of where you are nowâ¦ and you'll be light-years ahead of over 90% of all other career coaches, authors, speakers, consultants, career counselors and others competing for your clients' business.
Now in its seventh year, Career Coach Institute has trained hundreds of people in 31 countries in career coaching and is the world's premier source for career coach training and certification. It has built its success using a primarily online blended learning model.
