Is renting/leasing the services of a 'life coach' similer to buying shares in the Brooklyn Bridge?

I believe it's more like having a regular weekly appointment with a fortune teller.

If you can't manage your own life or make decisions for yourself, either one can help you - get your wallet open.

It's also something like hiring a personal trainer to force you to use all that expensive exercise equipment you bought.
