I started my journey into “careedom” in college. I was one of the few people who actually felt as if they knew what they wanted to do. I loved nutrition and fitness, yet, I somehow landed in Computer Science.

That swiftly changed as I honestly chickened out at the daunting task of Calculus 4. I switched to Nutrition and Dietetics out of left field and pursued that from there on. I wanted to learn the skill of teaching/coaching. …

A step-by-step guide to setting powerful goals that you’ll actually achieve.

I’ll go ahead and spare you the typical pep-talk of setting goals. We all know that goals are important. It’s important to have purposeful milestones in life, at which you are constantly working to achieve. Some would say this is what gives their life meaning in the first place. And that’s about as far into it as I’ll go.

Now, how many of those goals did you actually accomplish? How many of those goals are you still working on? How many did you give up on? It’s one thing to create a goal, yet another to actually achieve it. …

How I did it, what I used, and how you can do it too.

It seems like the dream to be able to make money online from the comfort of your home. That’s because, for most, it is. You work on your schedule, there is more freedom with your time, and you get to wear sweatpants!

Even if you don’t want to fully work from home ALL the time, you could still run a very successful side-hustle this way.

Yet, there are so many options to choose from. Are you going to Gary V it and start flipping things on Ebay? Start up an Etsy shop and sell coffee mugs? Freelance on Fiverr?

Here are the step by step instructions for how to make an extra 7k as a growing nutrition or fitness coach.

Starting a nutrition coaching business isn’t always easy… In fact it isn’t easy at all. With so many people jumping into that market, it can feel saturated at times.

What I’ve noticed to be true is that over time, the best coaches rise to the top of this saturated market. Now, how long will that take? It depends on many things, but it typically isn’t overnight. You may be looking at a year, two, or even three.

So what do you do if you have other obligations as well? Maybe you have a family to support, loans to pay off…

If you’re part of the fitness coaching world, then you know that it can be hard to find a good paying job. Most coaches, myself included, go into the world and get a degree similar to exercise physiology. From there, you pursue all sorts of certifications to build your alphabet soup. Literally, I wanted A-Z after my name.

All of that money spent and all of those hours studying, you would hope to leap into the coaching world making the big bucks.

Well… that typically doesn’t happen. Especially if you work for a gym as an employee. On average a…

So you’ve decided to be a health coach. That involves helping people with all of their health goals. It’s a great and fulfilling career path. I would know, because I too have been a successful health coach.

I’ve shifted people’s world around health and changed their narrative. Weight lost, weight gained, confidence reestablished, control regained. All of these are things that I’ve guided people towards.

However, there was one thing that I had to learn before I could do all of that.

Create a coaching identity.

Early in this journey, I jumped right in. You can be whatever you want…

I’ve been there. You get super excited about your new journey as a health coach. You took all of the certifications, read all of the books, and even got the business cards. You’ve even been coaching a few clients.

However, you aren’t making the money you want. You aren’t getting the clients you want. Your business isn’t flowing how you imagined it would.

This can be discouraging. It IS discouraging. You aren’t alone either.

Why isn’t this working?

You may start to think that you aren’t a good coach! However, this isn’t the case. …

You’ve heard a million different ways to get shredded or hit your fat loss goals. Turns out, it really isn’t that complicated. By being strategic and implementing what works, you’ll crush those goals.

Again, it doesn’t have to be flashy. You should know that eating whole foods and avoiding processed foods is important. However, people get tripped up when it comes to how much food they should eat for fat loss. How many calories, how much protein, how many carbs, how much fat.

Everything has a role, but there are literally TWO keys to making this happen and here they…

Of all things, health should be a high priority for people. It however, is not always seen that way. For many, health is put on the back burner to make room for other desires. It isn’t a value that is held very high for most, at least until it gets bad.

We’re a generation of not seeing the value in health until it begins to decline. We don’t want to be healthy, but we want to get healthy once it becomes an issue. …

Have you ever come across someone who has said they want something, but you knew they really didn’t want it that bad. Maybe they said they wanted to save money, but refused to stop eating out. Or someone who says they love to read, but has no books… A lot of people tend to say they want something but really don’t value it as much as they say.

One of the biggest undervalued or mis-valued things is health. Everyone is quick to say they care about their health, but honestly don’t. …
