Welcome! I’m so glad you stopped by to check out the website. I’m very happy to share my writing and my holistic health life with you all.
I’m a Holistic Health & Nutrition Advisor, Author, Business Mentor, and I love helping others find their passion and live it.
After years of working in the Corporate IT world, I’ve finally found my home in helping others reach their health goals and helping them really enjoy living their lives. I’d spent years burning the candle at both ends, working till the wee hours of the morning to get a proposal out the door because a senior VP wanted to change the pricing around at 4am for an 8am delivery. I worked straight through holidays, on vacations, and at parties. My energy levels were low. I didn’t have enough time to spend with my young son. I knew there had to be another way. I’d worked from home for years, telecommuting so that I could support different time zones around the world. I knew the drive and focus wouldn’t be a problem.
Before I left the full time J.O.B., I obtained my PhD in Holistic Health with a focus on fitness, nutrition, supplementation, and stress management.
When the company I’d been working for was acquired by a much larger IT firm, I knew my window for staying was narrowing. I’d always enjoyed working with smaller start-ups, but the job always changed when they were acquired. It took about two years before I was ready to say good-bye to what I considered a safe, reliable source of income.
I was ready to go back into the health and wellness industry. It’s been the fastest growing market for quite a while. I’d been learning more and more about health for my own sake and realized I could provide so much more by helping others achieve their goals. And, I wanted to be able to have time to focus on my writing.
During my studies, one of my classes was a business class and something in it struck home with me. Our instructor recommended that since we would be providing a service, in my case, holistic health mentoring, that we also needed to think about having products and books so that we could actually take a vacation and still be earning an income. Well, the book was a no brainer. I love to write. But products? I didn’t want to be recommending something just to make sales. I wanted to make sure anything I shared with my clients would be helpful for them.
I’d tried other direct sales companies in my younger years (one of them I tried twice).
I knew there was something about the model of the business I loved, but I was having a hard time because of the requirements, hosting parties, or maybe, it just wasn’t the right time for me. I needed to evolve and realize that for my business to work correctly, I needed to focus on education and service.
In 2008, after lots and lots of research, I’d found a new direct sales/network marketing company that truly resonated with my ideals, beliefs, and health focus. A company who wanted their associates to succeed. A company who was focused on quality, effectiveness, and potency of their products. After competing as a Figure competitor in several bodybuilding shows, I had tried many, many products that were supposed to be doing something to help me, and more often than not, they tasted horrible and had little to no effect on my energy levels. (Unless you count a racing heart after taking a fat burner…that I can promise you happens.)
Investing in myself and making the leap into NWM has been one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. I don’t have to worry about layoffs or government shut downs as so many in our local area do. I even gave myself a raise this past year! 102% raise to be exact. We’ve been building an amazing team of coaches who are out in the world, helping others get healthier and find better ways to achieve their dreams.
So, what are we doing this year?
(I keep saying we because my holistic health practice is really a family affair, even the young one is constantly talking to people about health and wellness. In the last few days? He’s started toting around a water jug that holds all his water for the day.) This year, the goal is to help even more people, expanding our reach further, educating more. We’ll definitely be updating the dream board for our vision and goals because we already seeing our business skyrocket.
Currently, I run six week courses in our local area, Detox & Energize, as well as several online programs. Our teachers have been seeing amazing results in their lives and their energy levels and happily sharing their health results with their students. Right now, we have four groups running around the area with another several groups online.
I help coaching clients one-on-one as well working on their specific health concerns to effect change on an individual basis. Initial appointments are FREE, and we focus on discussing your concerns and goals. Then, we decide if we can work well together in tackling those goals! Interested in learning more? Simply, click here and send me an email.
I also coach a select number of new people a year for those who want to build a residual income and a thriving holistic health coaching practice.
And, you can be sure, there will be more books released this coming year, like Fit You and a few fiction selections (because I have to keep true to my creative self too). I love what I do for a living, and love being able to share it with others. I have the freedom to be up at the school if my son needs me, at the local dojo teaching yoga and women’s self defense, or even tucked away at Starbucks working on my business or my writing.
Where do you fit in?
- Find me on Facebook. We focus on fun, fitness and general well-being. The goal is not only accountability, but encouragement too. We post the online classes there as well. You can even take a free online Health Assessment here.
Work one-on-one with me to create your individual health plan OR to create a solid, stable additional stream of income/business in a way that is fun, congruent and life expanding. Only people who are serious about creating a residual stream of income, are willing to learn, have a great work ethic, are positive, teachable and really want an abundant life in all areas should apply. I work with a limited amount of people every year so I can spend quality time coaching you, so again, please only apply if you are absolutely serious.
