In business, especially sales the idea of cold calling usually makes most of us sweat profusely, get clammy palms and occasionally hyperventilate. You've demonstrated a proven way to help someone through this anxiety with giving immediate feedback as the individual (your client) makes the call. This could be considered a type of mentorship, business coaching or as you noted, accountability partner. My question for you is, what did you do to help this individual? Can you identify a specific method, something new that others need to know now? There is your business model and your method and your product.
Giving someone the capability to have confidence to make a cold call, take a meeting, do the things they need to do promote their business is definitely a skill. How you convey the message, how you structure your business and what other wonderful strengths and gifts you possess are something you should definitely explore more. Do some research on the market, is there a need for this type of service, what space do you want to work in, what kind of package could you offer? Practice coaching calls, webinars, group coaching, role playing these types of scenarios to help with the calling process? I encourage you to consider having a conversation with a friend, a coach, a business mentor and talk about your ideas. Feedback on what you're thinking can help you more clearly define what type of business you want and how you can continue to use your skills to serve others.
There are several things to consider when you're contemplating becoming a life and/or business coach. What type of certification are you looking to achieve? The International Coaching Federation (ICF) is the internationally recognized accreditation body for certifying coaches with several different levels of life coaching. The coaching industry is still relatively unregulated so be careful which websites/programs you choose to use. I'd suggest doing some research for a program that will fulfill the ICF accreditation requirements and then when you've gotten your courses done, you can apply and take the ICF exam for your coaching certification.
This is a personal decision and it will be up to you to decide, what fits your needs. You may want to also think about what areas do you want to coach in? What is your coaching space? Do you know about creating businesses, are you an expert in something? There are so many areas of coaching and honing in on what makes you unique in the coaching space can go a long way in helping you decide which coaching program fits your requirements.
