Considering Life Coaching as a career

I am thrilled to be apart of LCS. I am currently in scholars working on weight loss and overeating. My goals are to lose weight and prove to myself that I can do the work and then start certification with the ultimate goal of becoming a life coach. I’m trying to decide when I should start in certification. What advice can you give for someone starting at the beginning looking forward to all of the exciting opportunities ahead and maybe feeling a little overwhelmed?
