Is it really possible to turn your passion for wellness into a successful, profitable business?
The answer… Yes!
There is one hurdle that needs to be addressed first though…
The Money Taboo
There seems to be a sense of reluctance for people in the “helping industries” to talk about profiting from their business.
Why? I believe many of us who are devoted to helping others feel a sense of guilt when it comes to making money in the process. There is this idea that profiting somehow lessons our good will. I have certainly felt this way, and even to this day, I have to continue consciously replacing those types of thoughts with new ones that allow me to feel thrilled to help others AND make a great living doing what I love.
The truth is, if you’re not able to work toward your own goals in life, how can you be truly effective at helping others reach theirs?
I have always seen money as something I want not because it buys “nice things”, but because it gives you choices in life. There is nothing more liberating then to be able to make decisions based not on how much money something costs, but on how important something is to you.
For me, I could care less about fancy cars (I gave up my car for a scooter and uber recently), or expensive clothes, or spending time at the spa. What I want is to travel and see as much of the world as possible. I want to hire awesome muay thai instructors to train me. I want to be able to buy gifts “just because” for my family and friends. These are the things that I want that money can buy.
So, the saying, “Money doesn’t buy happiness” is one hundred percent accurate. So is the saying, “Money buys choices.”
Additionally, I have discovered first hand that the more a person spends on my wellness coaching services, the more they get out of our work together.
Why? Because the more a person invests, the more value they place on the challenging process of replacing old unhealthy habits, with new healthy ones. The more a person invests, the more of a priority they make doing what it takes to transition to a lifestyle that will serve them in countless ways for the rest of their lives.
So, that all being said, I have decided to put the money taboo to the side and tell it like it is!
Burpees and Benjamins
I recently gave a talk at the Seed Summit (part of the Seed Food and Wine Festival 2016) on building a profitable wellness business. I recorded the presentation, and it was a hit, so I wanted to share it with all of you.
In the talk I shoot from the hip and talk about how I finally was able to turn my passion for conscious eating and healthy living into a highly profitable business in a matter of months. Even with all the success I had building a brand, with awesome exposure, recognition, publishing a book, etc. I worked tirelessly for years without monetizing my business beyond scraping by month-to-month (with credit card debt weighing heavily on me as well).
I finally said enough was enough and did the research, gained the business tools I needed, and found the support necessary to put together a solid plan of action. Once I did that, it was only a matter of a couple months before my business exploded! It was such an amazing feeling to be making a difference in the lives of people and animals all over the world AND earning the money I had dreamed of for years.
I knew immediately that my next step in my career path was sharing what I learned with anyone and everyone who is passionate about wellness who is also stuck in the place I was just a year ago. So, I created a program to do just that…. The 8-Week Empower Consulting Program.
I can’t tell you how incredibly exhilarating it is to see people through the process of taking their businesses to the next level, because I have been there. I get it!
So, if you are in the same boat of working your ass off and feeling frustrated that you’re not able to reach more people and make the income you deserve, check out the 8-Week Empower Consulting Program and book a one-on-one strategy session with me HERE.
I look forward to speaking with you!
