On-Demand LifeCoaching

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.
