Remember famous Buddhist proverb “When the student is ready the teacher will come”? Vent on Demand brings teachers whenever you need them. The service allows requesting real time, bite-sized coaching sessions with a single click on your mobile phone. Boom. Finding the teacher has never been easier.
Founded in February 2016 the Estonian-American team aims to introduce lifecoaching to busy professionals, who may not have considered such a service for them. Currently, the service offers two session options: 15-minute venting, designed to allow users to release frustrations, and 30-minute coaching sessions, which provide the opportunity for users to work with a coach to deal with issues as they arise.
Whenever you feel the need for rethinking life goals, just tap in the iPhone app, request a session with a life coach and get connected within minutes via an incoming phone call. Coaches are on call from 8:00 am to 8:00 pm Pacific time, with plans to expand availability to 24/7 in the future.
This is how Ave Karp Walker, the creator of Vent On Demand explains her idea:
“Life coaching needs a makeover! There are so many people out there who would benefit from coaching tremendously; people who would not necessarily need a therapist, but who may need more ad hoc support in the struggle of facing the everyday challenges of modern life. Coaching – in a way that fits easily into your daily life – can make a huge difference. With its unique service, Vent on Demand fills a much-needed gap in the market and brings life coaching into the 21st century!”
To achieve its goal, the company launched a $20,000 Kickstarter campaign to develop the iPhone app, as well as develop a front-end web platform for both customers and coaches to manage their accounts more efficiently. So far they were able to raise a bit over 20k, and you can find the app on the AppStore.
