EP39: Live Coaching: How to Know What Sells

EP38: 3 Keys to Getting Out of Overwhelm

We’re getting personal again this week! The word overwhelm is a word that I see on the regular in my online communities, and while I totally understand I also know this to be true - Overwhelm is a choice. Did that trigger you a little bit? I get it, but it’s still true. Remember, we get to choose how we feel. While we can’t always control what is happening around us, we get to choose how we feel and react to it. When you’re feeling overwhelmed you’re not taking massive, imperfect...


EP37: Turning Disordered Eatng Into A Business with Samantha Skelly

For many, sharing your own very personal and private experiences can feel super vulnerable and confronting. Or maybe you don’t feel as though you are “perfect” yet, so how could you possibly offer value or experience to others? Yet as I remind you time and time again, it’s your personal story and experience that your ideal client will resonate and connect with. It’s your story that will make people choose you over the many other health practitioners out there. But how do you actually turn...

EP30: The Truth About Making Hard Choices In Your Business & Life

At the end of 2017 I had to make 3 tough choices for my business and my life, and since I learn by example I thought it might be helpful to walk you through my decision making process. The story starts on December 8th, 2017. In Collingwood Ontario with my business bestie Stephanie Joanne. We spent hours laying on the floor with a bottle of wine and talking about ALL. THE. THINGS. I kept repeating to her - “I just need more time.” and so she asked me the question - “What do you need to...


EP29: The Secret To Sell With Confidence with Michelle McGlade

EP26: How to Run & Grow Your Business as an Introvert with Kathleen Legrys

Leading up to recording this episode I did a poll in my online community to see how many of the alternative health business owners in there identified as an introvert. I wasn’t super surprised to see that it was well over 70%. I don’t know if it’s just that I attract introverts because I am one as well and speak openly about it (it’s true, I just play an extrovert on the internet!) or if people drawn to alternative health and being of service to others are often introverted. I invited...

EP23: How To Be A Solid CEO & Build A Team with Michael Zeller

When I first graduated as a Nutritionist more than 10 years ago I literally had no idea that I was actually running a business - I was “just” a Nutritionist. It certainly didn’t occur to me to think like an entrepreneur or call myself a CEO. But once I started following and working with coaches and mentors that helped me shift my mindset and really step into my business everything changed. I invited Michael Zeller to join me for today's’ show to discuss how to be a smart business owner, a...


EP22: The Simplest Way To Remove Money Blocks For Good with Amber Dugger

I know I’m pretty biased… but this episode is GOOD!! We’re talking about money blocks this week and while that may already be making you uncomfortable or you’re thinking “I don’t have money blocks”, I challenge you to listen anyway.

EP21: How to Grow Your Facebook Group with Alicia Streger

Probably one of the top ten questions I get asked in my own Facebook Group is whether or not starting a Facebook Group makes sense for various alternative health practitioners in business. Whether you working in a clinical setting, in a gym or are exclusively online my answer is always ~ YES! But (and there is almost always a but isn’t there?), having a strategy around your Facebook Group is key. Otherwise, you’ll end wasting a ton of time and likely feeling super resentful. I knew...
