Nation of Consumption

Nation of Consumption

Sometimes, we take things for granted. I do remember a simpler time and I am sure my grandparents (God rest their souls), would remember it even simpler.

Do we really need to be such a nation of consumption? The food thrown away in our country could feed a nation! Not to mention all the clothes, shoes and unnecessary stuff we purchase. Then we are exhausted by trying to manage it all.

I’ve personally been on a mission to practice minimalism. Well, at least a version of it.

This year, think before you consume, both with food and stuff in general.

Before you buy ask yourself…
Do you really need it?

Everyone is selling something and we are all buying. The problem is all the excess. We really do buy more than we need. Why not try only buying what will make your life better!

This upcoming year try to keep it simple.

One of my greatest achievements has been creating a program with a roadmap for coaches to stay on track and grow their businesses.

The program includes EVERYTHING you need, done-for-you cooking classes, questionnaires and check lists to keep you FOCUSED, growing your list and making more money.

The cooking class kits are complete with everything you need to be organized and look like an expert from day one, you just plug in your information and get to work. This gives you the ability to get in front of a lot of people and make more income.

Make this the year that you KEEP IT SIMPLE and only have what you need to grow your business and create a sense of calm in your life.

Make it simple, but significant.
-Don Draper

Stop consuming excess and buying products and services that only sit in your computer. This course will change your life. Even if you are not a health coach, everything you need to become a certified wellness cooking instructor is included.

The course is now available throughout the year! Only at 1/3 of the price! And it includes a FREE MONTHLY MASTERMIND.

Extra income, FOCUS, and more joy.

That is my wish for you for the coming year.

3 Mistakes Not To Make When Building Your Health Coach Practice

3 Mistakes Not To Make When Building Your Health Coach Practice

Too often I see wellness coaches struggling and making the same mistakes when building your health coach practice. Maybe you can see yourself in some of the common downfalls solopreneurs make.

Most importantly, coaches don’t realize that they are in essence now entrepreneurs. They are trained on how to help people live healthier lives, but they are not given enough tools to help them go out and build their business.

 There are 3 mistakes you want to avoid…

1) Pushing a large program too early

2) Not having a short term or entry program that you are inviting them to (your call to action)

3) Not realizing that potential clients need to get to know, like and trust you before they sign up for a long-term coaching program.

 If you were trained to offer a six-month program, you will need to rethink that, it’s not that it can’t be done, but you need to invite people strategically.

 Let’s face it – to them, you’re a stranger, unless they are not, that’s another story.

 It’s important that you build a bond of trust, but how do you begin to do this?

 A great option is to have a short-term, low-cost program in place that draws people in so they can get to know you.

The Academy’s strategy is to hold a cooking class that introduces her short-term program. When you tie your program into the cooking class theme you are establishing the relationship and then directing them on how they can take their next step with you. 

Each week the Academy introduces a different strategy to build your business, each one builds upon the other.

Maybe you never realized, once you become a health coach you are an entrepreneur, unless of course you work in a doctor’s office or under the direction of someone else.

This course gives you EVERYTHING you need to promote, launch and facilitate a SUCCESSFUL business campaign to get yourself in front of people, expand your reach and gain new clients.

The Academy and their BUSINESS IN A BOX system includes everything you need when building your health coach practice, so all that’s left to do is what you do best: teach and COACH. It doesn’t get much easier than this.

And because the program includes a live monthly mastermind, you get an opportunity to get connected with an amazing community of health coaches while you are adding more clients – a total win-win.

To help you get started right away, we suggests that you start to map out your system; have a cooking class, demo or talk scheduled and the short-term program you are inviting them to. We goes into this in great detail in the program and even provides you with the material! Sounds like a win-win to me!

Using Corporate Wellness Programs to Grow Your Business

Using Corporate Wellness Programs to Grow Your Business

How Do Teaching Healthy Cooking Classes and Corporate Wellness Go Hand in Hand?

As you are probably aware health costs continue to rise. Employers are sometimes forced to shift the expense onto their employees by reducing their benefits and going with higher deductibles.

In order to combat these rising costs, more and more companies are adding in wellness programs. Some of them have been successful and some have not.

Corporate wellness programs are designed to nurture wellness in workers, regardless of the work environment. None of these things are a substitute for routine medical checkups, but Corporate Wellness programs are designed to make medical treatment and medication for employees less needed.

When you have healthy employees, your company reaps the benefits. A correctly designed wellness program can increase productivity, boost moral and reduce stress. Wellness programs help employees make smart and healthy choices that can reduce health care costs, increase vitality and diminish absenteeism.

As a health coach, you can provide organizations with Healthy Cooking Classes as Lunch & Learn workshops and group wellness programs that help improve their food choices, creating more energy, better productivity and a general increase in their overall health.

Corporate Wellness Lunch and Learns get you in front of large groups of people and are the perfect way to expand your health coach business!
