Are you a fresh graduate from the Primal Health Coach program, or maybe you’re considering signing up, but you’re little unsure as to what health coach jobs are available?

Health coaching is a growing industry, with many different career paths, depending on where your passions lie, and what interests you.

Here we provide a list of 7 health coaching career opportunities available to graduates of the Primal Health Coach program and 9 online resources to help you find the right job for you.

1. Health Coach Blog Writer

With the online holistic health and wellness community expanding rapidly, there is an ever-increasing number of websites and companies looking to employ blog writers with health coaching credentials.

The great thing about being a blog writer is that you get to share your nutrition and health knowledge to an international audience AND you can do this from the comfort of your own home.

The flexible hours of a health coach blog writer would suit a health and wellness expert that has a young family or someone that is currently working another job.

2. Start Your Own Health Coaching Business

Starting your own heath coaching business can seem a little scary, but has the potential to be highly rewarding.

Whether you decide to make your health coaching business your full-time job, or plan to fit it around your existing profession, the best part of running your own business is that you are your own boss! This means that you get to choose your own work hours and the clients you take on.

3. Develop an Online Health Coaching Program

Health and wellness coaching is one of the top emerging trends since 2015 as more people are turning to health coaches to achieve their health goals.

If you’re someone that wants to make an impact in the world and you strive to spread your health and wellness knowledge with the widest reach possible, why not develop your own online health coach program? This is a great option for someone that wants to work flexible hours from home, and it can be worked alongside another job.

4. Teach a Cooking Course

Do you love sharing your primal recipes with friends and family?

Or maybe you have a personal blog where you post your healthy cooking ideas?

Why not combine your passion for creating delicious and nutritious food creations with your Primal Health Coach credential and start your very own cooking course!

This could be completely online, or you could offer classes in your local area.

The scope for this is large, and the possibilities are endless!

5. Work for a Doctor

Health coaching has a proven track record for successful management of chronic disease, and this is likely to continue as a growing number of physicians are employing health coaches to act as an intermediary in the patient/provider relationship.

Behavioral change takes time, which is something a doctor just doesn’t have. Conversely, health coaches work with clients over a period of weeks or sometimes months to motivate and help implement the lifestyle change needed to manage their chronic health problems.

6. Work for a Health Insurance Company

Some health insurance companies offer health coaching services to their clients.

Whilst this isn’t a standard feature offered from all health providers, this particular niche within the health coach industry is likely to expand rapidly in the U.S. and in other Western countries.

7. Start Your Own Primal/Paleo Food Service

Do you have a passion for cooking and helping others?

Despite wanting to make the healthiest food choices, many people struggle to find time to prepare home-cooked nutritious meals. The need for ready-to-eat primal/paleo meals and snacks is definitely in high demand and is not likely to slow down anytime soon.

Why not start your own primal/paleo food service?
