Self-Coaching and Clients

OK. this may seem like a silly question but hear me out…

We as coaches depend on clients to make a living, fulfill our purposes, etc. All beautiful and glorious!

But if we are teaching others to use the self-coaching model, why would they need us as a coach to help them? I totally get that everyone should have a coach, but if they get the tools to do it, why would they need us?

Please don’t beat me up too hard here, lol… I know the answer deep down…but I’d really like to hear the “official” answer to this question which was posed by a friend of mine to me. Thanks!
