I am a life coach but am unsure to which kind of business licence is needed LLC, Corporate, or DBA
What entity type you choose (sole proprietorship, corporation or LLC) is a different issue than business licenses. Regardless of the entity, you will likely be required to obtain a business license from the county or city where you will be conducting your business. And you may need to be licensed by the State depending on what services you are providing (See Title 43 of the Georgia Code).
You should consult with an attorney. LLC, corporation and DBA are not licenses, the first two are types of entities and an DBA is used to register a name different than the business name you are using in business.

Beyond that you should have an attorney prepare the formation and supporting documents. "Life Coaches" are not professionally licensed, unless you are providing more (such as professional counseling). The only other 'license' you may need would be a local business or occupational license, which will vary depending on your location, and sometimes, but not always required for home based businesses. Check with your town/county for that.

For helpful information about business license requirements in GA, see: https://georgia.gov/popular-topic/business-licenses. In addition to any business licenses, you should consult with an experienced Business Attorney to determine the best entity for your business (LLC, corporation, or other) and whether the entity should conduct business under a trade name (DBA and, possibly, trademark registration).
The foregoing discussion does not establish an attorney-client relationship, is qualified by the limited facts presented above, and should not be relied upon as legal advice. To obtain definitive legal advice upon which one can rely necessitates retaining an attorney who is qualified in this particular area of the law.
