Levin Life Coach Academy

Several years ago, Nancy identified a major gap in the world of life coach training and certification. Coaches approached her (after having spent thousands of dollars on life coach certifications) asking her how to build and grow a business. As an in-demand master life coach, she was running a thriving coaching business, guest speaking for organizations and events throughout the world, and writing bestselling books for several years. These coaches wanted to know Nancy’s method for achieving success. This is how Nancy became a coach for coaches. After listening to experiences of acquiring costly certifications but not knowing how to get clients, or what to do once they got them, Nancy saw A LOT missing from these programs. And she realized every single existing and aspiring life coach deserves better.

Levin Life Coach Academy has trained and certified countless coaches, providing them with a well-defined path toward success.

LLCA’s training and certification program is the only program that offers live, hands-on, completely virtual instruction and personalized guidance, plus the business skills you need to become a profitable coach.

Hi, I’m Nancy

Bestselling author, master life coach, and host of Your Permission Prescription Podcast!


As the founder of Levin Life Coach Academy, I offer in-depth coaching and training programs designed to support students and clients to make themselves a priority and set boundaries that stick.


I’ve guided thousands of people — including corporate CEO’s, stay-at-home moms, authors, artists, healers, entrepreneurs and other coaches — to uncover their truth in the most powerful ways, and I’ve witnessed them do some pretty amazing things.


Personally and professionally, I know what happens when you finally step up and find the courage to change and although my life today may not show it, I know how hard that first step can be to take.


I’m excited you’re here — confidence and change await!


NL intro

Is Levin Life Coach
Academy for me?

The demand for life coaches is growing exponentially every year. Many life coaches have to place people on a waitlist because they simply do not have the space to accommodate everyone in need. In the last five years, the search query “life coach near me” surged by 2,900% and the search query “life coach vs therapist” surged 160%. The data speaks for itself! The world needs more life coaches. Choosing the right life coach training and certification program is the foundation on which you build your success.

But Nancy…

Yes, there are more life coaches today than there were several years ago, but this profession is still fairly young and full of opportunity. Skilled, certified life coaches are in high demand. The key to standing out is becoming certified and learning how to properly market yourself so that you cut through the competition.

In LLCA we explore this exact question and help you hone in on the kind of coach you want to become and the ideal client you’d like to serve. I teach you how to leverage your own life experiences to identify your niche. Think of it this way: Become the coach you would have wanted during a time in your life when you were struggling.

Neither did mine when I first started! Yes, I was working in the self-help space as Event Director for Hay House, but I never expected to become a coach. You do not need any sort of life coaching background to succeed. I have trained and certified a diverse range of people from different professions, including Fortune 500 executives, technology specialists, non-profit workers, realtors, and hourly wage employees just to name a few.

All you need is the desire to become a life coach. LLCA is how you get there.

Yes! This is how many coaches get started as they build up their businesses. Some people want to build up a full practice before leaving a secure job. Others don’t want to give up their current professions, and choose to do both. Some people have busy and full family lives, and prefer to work part time. You get to shape how you spend your time.

All you need is the desire to become a life coach. LLCA is how you get there.

Many of our alumni entered LLCA after having been certified by other coaching programs. They chose to go through LLCA for different reasons. Some did not feel they received adequate training because they didn’t know how to build their business or serve their clients fully. Others wanted to add more knowledge and skills to what they already learned. Many sought out the personal transformation and healing that is exclusive to LLCA.


Here’s everything
you’ll explore in LLCA

Powerful questions we love to answer

This program is for you if you’re interested in pursuing life coaching as a career or would like to use this training to enhance your personal or professional life.

As Nancy often shares, when she enrolled in her life coach training, she never imagined that she might one day be leading thousands of people to their own personal transformation. As the Event Director of Hay House, she thought she already had her dream job!

After all, she was already working with some of the top transformational leaders in the world, like Louise Hay and Wayne Dyer, and couldn’t imagine anything being more fulfilling. But, the truth is that in the process of becoming a certified coach, her life changed so dramatically that she felt called to help people in a bigger way.

Maybe you’re a therapist looking to expand your current practice with life coaching to introduce accountability and increase action by being able to work beyond the borders of your state and virtually.

Maybe you’re a CEO who understands the power of listening and team building in helping you accomplish your corporate goals. Or perhaps you’re looking to lead in a new, more powerful way.

Maybe you’re someone who has checked all the boxes off in life yet still feels like something else must be out there waiting for you!

Whatever your reason, if you’re looking for a training program that doesn’t just hand out certificates but makes sure you’re a trained and highly skilled professional, Levin Life Coach Academy is for you!

Yes! Unlike other programs that are largely pre-recorded and only provide limited access to the lead instructor, you’ll have consistent direct access to Nancy throughout each module.

 All of Levin Life Coach Academy modules are designed to be attended virtually via Zoom with replays available in our student portal.

Yes! You do not need to have experienced coaching prior to enrolling in this program, and you will receive it as part of your training.

One of the benefits of this life coach program is that no matter where you are on your personal journey, this program will train you to be an impeccable life coach and will also help you transform your own personal life in incredible ways.

How much time you will need to dedicate to receiving your training and certification will largely depend on the Module. In addition to the curriculum for each Module, Nancy will hold biweekly Office Hours and the Community Director will hold Orientation Sessions. You’ll also receive 3 one-on-one coaching sessions with your mentor over the course of the program.

Module One: Weekly full group live video sessions (90-minutes) with Nancy and biweekly small group sessions with your mentor (60-minutes). In addition, you’ll also need to dedicate time to reading, weekly reflections, and action steps. (Approximately 3-5 hours/week)

While we recommend attending as many live sessions as you can in order to get the most out of your training experience, you are not required to attend live.

Live 90-minute sessions will take place on Zoom and will be recorded. Replays will be placed in the student portal within 24 hours after completion. You will, however, be required to watch each of these sessions in order to fulfill written exercises and submit your verification of completion.

Levin Life Coach Academy isn’t just for people who want to open a life coaching business. It’s also for professionals who want to become better leaders and learn how to create more engagement and harmony within their organizations. Many LLCA certified coaches come from Fortune 500 companies, or are in professions that include law, medical, or other corporate fields.

These certified coaches bring enormous value to their organizations once they learn the skills and tools needed to support their colleagues. As a result, many of our students find their organizations are willing to contribute to a portion of their LLCA tuition. This is especially true if your organization supports continuing education.

Here are the benefits of bringing life coaching skills into your profession:

  • Increased employee engagement
  • Higher employee retention rates
  • Greater employee satisfaction
  • Improved workplace productivity and efficiency
  • Better work/life integration

You can approach your employer with these proven benefits to ask if they’d be willing to contribute to your LLCA tuition.
