About the Author of : The Best Jobs in Israel for English Speakers
Hi, my name is Claude Lee Massey and thanks for reading the article above! I wrote the article because I wanted to help you. You see, I’ve been living in Tel Aviv for 10+ years and I know it can be a struggle living here as a foreigner.
I remember the day I arrived in Israel I had NO money – NO friends – and NO job.
So, let’s get into a great question that I often ask myself.
“How did I go from having no money, no friends, and no job to having all three.
Here is the long story short version, of the important part of my story:
So let’s get into it and let me start at the beginning. Once upon a time, about seven years ago (and after 15+ years of soul-searching), I had a powerful self-realization.
That the purpose of my life, was meant to be lived through helping other people get what they want from life… by any means necessary. Therefore, with my 15+ years of experience in the field of sales, and customer service I decided to open a sales training company.
At this point, I had a full time job working for a high-tech company so on my day off, I found an accountant. Then I hired him and had him file the proper paperwork to open a sales training company with the government.
I never thought that I would open my own business in Israel… but I did! I decided to name my sales training company Sales Development Israel. Then, I began to use all of my spare time before work and after work creating training materials, and trying to acquire clients.
In addition, I was sending emails and cold calling companies in Tel Aviv, Herzliya, Ramat Gan, Jerusalem, Bat Yam, and Holon. Basically, I was reaching our across the whole country of Israel during my efforts.
I doing everything in my power to generate momentum. in my new business Great news is that I was able to find my first few clients! However, something I immediately noticed was at the conclusion of my sales training workshops, two things would happen consistently happen:
Firstly, I would receive feedback that my sales training workshops were providing massive value for the sales team. This meant that the companies were happy with the service I provided, which was nice to know.
Then one time, a female student offered to pay me for a one-on-one session outside of the office. As a struggling entrepreneur, I accepted.
Another student, at another company, approached me and offered to pay me for my time to help prepare him for a job interview. We developed a plan, strategized, and executed.
Similarly, another student from another workshop, at another company, asked me to help them build their inner-confidence. We developed a plan, strategized, and executed. This would happen again, and again…
They all knew that I was not certified or professionally trained, and still they would approach me, and offer to pay me for my time. These first clients would call me their “Life Coach” or “Career Counselor“, and I was able to help them!
At the conclusion of our 3 to 5 one-on-one sessions, they each had taken took massive steps forward towards the results they wanted. Each time we developed a plan, strategized, and executed successfully!
Eventually, enough people paid me to sit down with them, and then called me their Career Counselor or Life Coach that I began to call myself a “Career Counselor” and ”Life Coach”.
In addition, most people set out to become a trained and certified life coach (קואצ’ר , אימון אישי) or career counselor before ever having a client. I never did any of that kind of stuff, and that wasn’t the path I took to arrive where I am.
I never once said to myself that I wanted to be a life coach (אימון אישי לחיים) or a career counselor even one time. On the contrary, this beautiful, interesting, and fulfilling profession that I currently have came directly to me.
So that is the super-short story of how I began life coaching (תל אביב קואצ’ינג לחיים) and career counseling in Tel Aviv Israel, and after all these years I’m happy to say I have helped hundreds and hundreds of people just like you!
