Abstract: The purpose of this study is to show how life coaching can help entrepreneurs develop selfconfidence. For this, we created a focus group with a single question, in which we asked the entrepreneurs to answer the question: "How did you manage to develop self-confidence after the life coaching sessions?" This focus group was attended by 20 IT entrepreneurs, of which 10 men entrepreneurs and 10 women entrepreneurs, who have also held life coaching sessions in the past, with different life coaches. Life is only improved by changes that take place inside, not by chance. So, improvements only occur when entrepreneurs want to make a change, and change happens when confidence appears.
