Get certified or not

Hi Brooke! I need help deciding please. I have been in scholars for several months but wasn’t fully committed. Now certification program opened and I am considering joining. My goal is not to become a life coach but to better coach myself. However, the financial investment is significant and will hurt my budget. It is probably an unfair question to ask you, but do you think becoming a certified coach will help me coach myself better or will committing to SCS and applying the model without becoming certified will do the same?
Thank you in advance!
