Benefits of Planning for the New Year

Benefits of Planning for the New Year

  When I think about everything that happened this year, there may have been things I would have planned better…and other things, the ones that threw me the most, that I couldn’t have foreseen.  I could go on and on and tell you about all the details…ugly and beautiful, of my year, but I think […]

Adding Products in With Your Programs

Adding Products in With Your Programs

In 2012 I designed a program that was specifically created to be used with supplements (vitamins and minerals).  At the time, it was my intention to promote a clean supplement line with the program.  After a while, it became clear that our involvement with any Multi-Level Marketing company could be a conflict of interest.  Pulling […]

How to Get More Customers

How to Get More Customers

  We did a questionnaire for Building Abundance.  The conclusion with 98% of the answers is…   Many Health Coaches do not understand what goes into getting customers.   It sure sounds easy…”get a customer”….how hard can that be?  It isn’t hard…but it takes some hard work.   Health Coaching is not “get rich quick” […]

Instead, the alternative is to invest in making it better. So much better that people can’t help but talk about it—and so much better that they would truly miss it […]

Living Up to Our Own Expectations

At this moment in time, do you accept yourself as you are…or do you not approve of yourself? This is a particular problem with health coaches because, if we do not fully accept and love ourselves, we can not open up and accept and love others.  The harder we are on ourselves, the harder we […]

Purchasing your Platinum package with its educational courses, support, and coaching has been one of the best business investment decisions I have ever made! This week I was able to sell my largest wellness coaching package to date, thanks to having access to the beautiful content that your company provides for me to share with my clients. Being able to show the client the programs, and allowing them to see themselves doing the modules and creating change for themselves, is an invaluable sales tool that has been working like a charm. I am now converting more New Client Assessments into long term packages, more than twice as many as before. The Health Coach Group has absolutely filled a void in my nutrition coaching business, and I am so grateful I found you!
