If you have an area of expertise, then you have an asset that you can use to make money online and create freedom for yourself: you can take that expertise and turn it into an online course. An online course is a wonderful way to not only share what you know, and bring it to a wider audience and help people anywhere in the world, but it's also a way to make money online, no matter where you are or what else you've got going on in your life. Whether you already have a business or not, creating an online course is something that anyone can do, but I completely understand that the process of creating a course can feel very daunting. Where do you start? How do you choose the right course idea? What tech pieces will you need? How do you build it? How do you sell it?

150: Morning Routines: Healthy Habits To Do Everyday

Would you love to have a morning routine that sets you up for success all day long? In this episode, I walk you through the process of crafting your very own morning routine. A lot has been said about morning routines (in books, blogs, YouTube videos, etc), and a lot of that content showcases the very specific morning routine of an individual creator. While those are definitely fun to listen to and watch, when it comes time to create your own morning routine it's unlikely that you're going to just copy/paste the exact morning routine of your favorite influencer.  So, what do you do? How do you put together the perfect morning routine for YOU? And perhaps more importantly – how do you make it a habit that you will actually stick with? Listen to this episode to find out!

147: What Is Human Design and Can It Optimize Your Health? w/ Kelsey Abbott

Can Human Design help improve your health and well-being? The field of Human Design is an interesting topic that I really didn't know much about, to be honest, before having this conversation with my guest today. Kelsey Abbott is an intuitive Human Design and Money Coach who uses science, spirituality and play to help people welcome more ease, abundance and joy into their lives. Kelsey has a scientific background, like me, so it was interesting to hear about her journey into this more spiritual world, and the difference that it has made for her, personally, as well as her clients.  In addition to being a coach, Kelsey also lives a wonderful life in Florida, as she is also an accomplished triathlon racer and takes plenty of time to play in nature with her husband and her dog, Zumi. One of the things that we talk about in this episode is the various ways that Human Design can influence your health, and how you can use it to optimize your well-being, if you feel called to go further down the path with Human Design. We talk about the fact that we are all different and we are all unique, and how what works for one person is not going to work for another person – something that I know to be true from my many years in the medical field. What I enjoyed learning about, in terms of Human Design, during this conversation with Kelsey, is the permission to be unique, and the permission to listen to your intuition, which I think are things that so many of us have had drummed out of us.

144: How To Recession-Proof Your Business w/ Stacy Tuschl

You may not want to think about this, but I want to ask you: how ready are you for times of crisis, like a recession? Specifically, if you're building a business, how ready is your BUSINESS for unforeseen challenges? Today I have a guest with me who is an expert at creating systems so that your business can run like a well-oiled machine not only so that you can grow, but also so that you can weather the storms that might be coming your way. Stacy Tuschl started her own business at the age of 18 in her parents' backyard and turned that company into a multi-million dollar business she still runs today.   Stacy is a bestselling author and founder of Well Oiled Operations, where she helps small business owners around the world create systems that facilitate growth. Her podcast, Well Oiled Operations, now has over 2 million downloads and she has interviewed guests like Suze Orman.   Stacy was also named the 2019 Wisconsin Small Business Person of the Year by the United States Small Business Administration.

143: How To Create Lifestyle Freedom With A Product Line w/ Katie Hunt

Have you considered developing a product line? Whether you run a business currently and you'd love to offer products alongside your existing services, or you're thinking about starting up a brand new side-hustle or business, selling products can be an amazing way to build a new stream of income and chart a path to financial freedom. And to me, freedom is a big part of wellness. Whether it's financial freedom, lifestyle freedom, geographic freedom, time freedom… whatever it is. It's difficult to be truly well, in the broader sense, if you feel like a prisoner in your own life in some way. So that's why I feel like anything that can help you achieve more freedom, autonomy, independence, and agency in your life, will help you achieve that fuller picture of wellness that we're all striving for. So in today's conversation I'm chatting with a woman who specializes in helping people build and grow product-based businesses, which in my book, is helping people create freedom for themselves. Katie Hunt is the founder of Proof to Product. She's also a podcast host, a business strategist, and a community builder for product-based business owners.  Since 2011, Katie has helped thousands of brands get their products on the shelves of retail stores big & small. Her alumni's products are sold in Target, Nordstrom, the Container Store, and Starbucks, as well as independent boutiques around the world. During this episode, Katie and I talk about: How to decide whether a product business is right for you The importance of starting small and strategic The danger of trying to sell ALL THE THINGS The pros and cons of physical products vs. digital products The importance of defining your goals and your WHY, before developing your product line …and lots more!

142: SEO Tips: Content Marketing Strategy w/ Meg Casebolt

If you're building a business, you may be feeling burned out with the social media hamster wheel that requires you to be constantly churning out posts (that are here today and gone in a matter of hours). Or maybe you never really loved social media anyway, but you're wondering "how else are people going to find me?" How are you supposed to get in front of the people who you can help, and the people who will become clients? Well, the strategy that my guest and I get into today has nothing to do with social media, and in many ways is far more effective than social media. For one thing, this strategy will help you get in front of people at the exact moment that they're looking for the solution you provide. This strategy also has a way longer shelf life, meaning the effort that you put in now will continue to pay off for a long, long time… like we're talking months or years, rather than the hours that you get with a social media post. My guest today is Meg Casebolt, the founder of Love At First Search and the host of the Social Slowdown podcast.  Meg specializes in helping businesses spend less time trying to hack the algorithms and instead create SEO content that attracts their ideal audience to their website while helping entrepreneurs cut their dependency on social media for their business visibility.  Meg's clients are entrepreneurs who are too busy changing the world to worry about things like website conversion rates and search traffic.

141: How To Optimize Your Health Coaching Website w/ Jenny Belanger

Is your website doing the job you need it to be doing? Specifically, is it acting as a client-attracting machine? Because I have to tell you, having a "nice" looking website is not enough. Websites are very important when building your business, but there's very little point to creating and maintaining a website if it's not doing what you need it to do. So how do you make sure that your website IS a client-attracting machine? What needs to go onto a website that's doing the work of attracting your dream clients and bringing them along a journey toward becoming an actual client, or customer? My guest on this episode helps us answer these questions, and more. Jenny Belanger is the CEO and Creative Director of JennyB Designs, a website design studio, and she helps entrepreneurs and small businesses build websites that communicate and connect with visitors and attract their ideal clients.  With Jenny's background in nonprofit and corporate marketing + communications, she has been designing websites for 20 years, and in this episode I pick her brain about all her experiences and the wisdom she's gained when it comes to website function and design.

140: What Stops You From Living An Active Life? w/ Nicola Mercer

What does being healthy really mean? And perhaps more importantly, how can we each start to pursue our own version of wellness? This is exactly what my guest and I get into on today's episode. Nicola Mercer is one of the coaches on my team - she works with me inside the Wellness Coach Academy, supporting all our students and new coaches as they're building their businesses - and before coming onto my team, she was actually a student herself inside my program, and became a certified coach through WCA. But before THAT, she was a corporate girl, working for Nike for 20 years. Nicola learned a lot when she worked at Nike, about the power of taking care of both your body and mind, and also why, as adults, we have a responsibility to normalize healthy living for the younger generation. We get into all of these topics and more in today's conversation. Full episode notes:

139: Changing Careers From One Industry To Another w/ Jenn Trepeck

Are you currently working in an industry that's not related to healthcare or the wellness field, but you would really love to make a change and start building a career in wellness? If you're like many people I talk to, you might have some doubts about your ability to do that. You might have questioned whether it's something you can even do, or you might have thought things like "who am I to talk to people about their wellness?" because you don't have a background in it. And if that sounds familiar, then you definitely need to stay tuned for this episode. My guest today, Jenn Trepeck, runs a thriving business in the wellness space, and has a terrific podcast of her own, called Salad With A Side Of Fries. But she didn't start out that way. In fact, Jenn started moving into the wellness field and started her company as a side hustle, while working full time in hedge funds in New York City. The wisdom that Jenn shares in this episode can actually apply to anyone who is contemplating a career change, but has some fears and hesitations that are holding them back …no matter what industry you're starting in and what industry you're looking to pivot into…but of course it especially applies if you're feeling called to the wellness space.

138: How To Build Coaching Skills And Find Your Tribe w/ Sara Dunbar

Building a tribe is such a key thing for us all, especially when we’re doing something new, or different, or scary. Having a supportive community that has your back can be the difference-maker you need, in terms of your success and your happiness. It’s also a key element of living a healthy life, although it’s often not given the importance it deserves. After all, we humans are social creatures. We’ve always depended on our social structures for survival…and we still need them today.  My guest for this episode, Sara Dunbar, is a member of my team inside the Wellness Coach Academy. She works with our students to support and mentor them as they go through the program, and especially to help them build their own coaching skills, which is something you’ll hear us talk about a lot during this conversation. A key thing for Sara, one of her core values, is this idea of connecting with other people and building a tribe of supportive people as you’re going through this journey of life. And this is another thing you’ll hear us talk about during this conversation – not only about the importance of creating a community for yourself, but also how to find that community, if it’s something you feel is lacking in your life.

Let’s talk about the things that hold us back in business. If you’re building a business in the health and wellness industry, I’m willing to bet that the things that you THINK are holding you back aren’t the things that are actually holding you back. This is true for many of us, but it’s especially true for my guest today, Kat Chao, who has built a huge amount of success growing her social media audience on TikTok and Instagram (to over 100K followers on each of those platforms)…but is still not where she would like to be, business-wise. And you’re going to get to sit in as I coach her through this issue in real time. You’ll hear us discuss the reasons behind that amazing success on social media and find out how she managed to accomplish this feat – and I think you’ll be surprised to learn how easily she was able to do it, especially since Kat is a mother of two young kids. And you’ll also hear as I dig into her business and her mindset around monetizing, and see if we can uncover what’s going on for her and what’s holding her back from taking things to the next level, and I think you’re going to find it fascinating.

I know a lot of entrepreneurs struggle with this, and I have also seen this fear of criticism hold a lot of people back from doing their good work in the world. If that sounds at all familiar then you’re going to love this episode because I’ve got a guest with me today who has been struggling with this exact issue, and you’re going to get to sit in as I coach her through it, in real time. Julie Doan is a previous client of mine, and she has built a very successful health coaching business. She is a pharmacist by training, and she is also a health coach with a very busy and successful practice helping people with their metabolic and hormonal health. But Julie has been thinking about a new direction for her business for quite some time, and the time is ripe right now for her to start building out this new project, but there are a few things that are standing in her way – probably the biggest is her mindset around this new venture. So the format of this episode is going to be a little different because I’m going to be coaching Julie on this issue and I think you’ll be really interested to see how it all plays out, and what Julie discovers as we dig into her mindset about her new project for her business.  Full episode notes: Where to find Julie: Website: IG: More Helpful Resources: Download my FREE Marketing Checklist for Health Coaches: 12 Ways To Get Clients My Free Class: How To Build A 6-Figure Health Coaching Business Using One Signature Program Kim on Instagram:

135: How She Built A 7-Figure Health Coaching Business w/ Amanda Nighbert

I talk to a lot of people who would love to become a wellness coach and build their own business, but a lot of them really struggle with a lot of doubt. They doubt whether this is really possible. They're maybe even skeptical, because, let's face it, it sounds too good to be true, doesn't it? When you run a successful business as a wellness coach, you are your own boss. You set your own hours, go on vacation when you want, work from home if you want, or really work from wherever in the world you like. And, even better than all that, you get to wake up every day with the satisfaction of knowing that you are helping people to improve their lives. I mean, it just sounds amazing, right? So I don't blame people for being skeptical. Because it does sound too good to be true. Which is why I'm so excited to share with you today's conversation with my guest Amanda Nighbert… because Amanda is a registered dietitian who specialized in weight loss nutrition – and she has built, no joke, a 7-figure business out of her area of expertise. Amanda used to work at a hospital making $66K a year, before following her passion and starting her own business, which is now more successful than she could have possibly imagined when she first started out. In fact, you'll hear us talk about this during the interview, that all she really wanted to do when she started out was make $1000 extra each month. That was her initial goal. But she has gone way beyond that goal, obviously. And it's all because she made the decision that she just wasn't going to settle for the status quo. She was willing to try something new, and she has given herself permission to try, and see what happens … instead of worrying about what might go wrong, and thinking that this isn't really possible. And I'm saying this because I know those doubts and worries are what are stopping a lot of YOU from jumping in and getting moving. So without further ado, to show you just what is truly possible for you, if you are willing to show up for yourself – here's my conversation with Amanda Nighbert. Full episode notes:

130: How To Stop The Entrepreneurship "Hustle" w/ Kristy Robinson

When you're building a wellness business, eventually what can happen is that you start getting very busy, and very overwhelmed. My guest on this episode calls this the "messy middle" and that's absolutely what it is. It can be stressful and hard to know what you need to do to scale to the next level. At this stage, you also might be battling a lot of the noise that's coming at you externally, especially through social media, about the stage that you "should" be at, and how much you "should" be making, at this stage of the game, and a lot of other toxic expectations and pressures. You might be feeling a lot of comparisonitis, and feeling like you're not doing things right. If any of that sounds familiar, if you're feeling like you've become a slave to your business and you've lost track of why you're even doing this in the first place, then this episode is for you. My guest is Kristy Robinson, and Kristy is a coach who helps Small Business Owners wade through the messy middle to create a sustainable business they genuinely love. Kristy is a mum of 2, like me, she's a wife, and also the founder of two businesses.

129: How To Use Storytelling In Your Marketing Strategy w/ Carolyn Stine

Marketing your health and wellness coaching business online can be really challenging. One of the challenges is dealing with the lack of human connection that's inherent when everyone is sitting behind their computers. When you're trying to market to people online, it can be tough to really make that human connection. So how do we get past that? How do we break through that anonymity, and the distance and the barriers that are created when we're all viewing things and consuming things through a screen? Well, one of the best ways is through storytelling. Storytelling is how we humans have connected since the beginning, and it's how we still connect today. And if you can tap into that, then you have a much better chance of connecting with the actual humans who make up your audience and connecting with them on a deep, emotional level, not just a surface level. To help us with this is my guest today, Carolyn Stine, who is a Messaging & Storytelling Coach for female leaders and creators. Carolyn helps people bring their multidimensional selves to life with messaging that grows their businesses. Through 12 years of experience in marketing, strategy, and copywriting for digital brands and 2 businesses she built in consulting and coaching, Carolyn has seen firsthand how unleashing your voice and your story truly unleashes your most aligned business growth. Here are some of the things you'll learn: Why storytelling is SO important for creating a brand How to overcome the uphill struggle of marketing your business.

Welcome back to the show. Today I've got a fantastic guest with me, and we're going to be talking about how to build wealth. I often focus on how to build your business here on the show, of course, and how coaches in the wellness industry can get more clients and grow their impact and all of those things, but there is a difference between having a profitable coaching business and actually growing your personal wealth. This still continues to be a bit of a taboo subject, I have to say, which is too bad because it's such an important thing to talk about, particularly for women. Because money is a good thing. When you have money, you have choices. You have freedom. And that's what I want for all of you.

124: How To Market Your Health Coaching Business When You Don’t Have A Team w/ Sarah Noel Block

One of the biggest struggles I hear from people is how to get started with marketing their business. Especially in the early stages, when they don't have any help or a team to outsource to, so they're doing everything alone. Also, if you don't have a marketing background yourself then how are you supposed to know what to do?

121: Stress Management Tips For Entrepreneurs w/ April Likins

If you're feeling stressed, and you're trying to run a business, then this episode is for you. The last couple of years have presented some really unprecedented challenges, and not everyone is coping well. It's even trickier when you're actually working within the health and wellness industry, because we tend to feel a certain amount of pressure to have the perfect lifestyle. But we're not immune to stress. Wellness professionals are just as vulnerable to stress as anyone else, but I know you may be feeling a certain degree of shame and an impulse to hide your stress and show the world that you're just completely fine. If you feel like you've got a ton of stress in your life right now, you're not alone. And it's exactly why I wanted to bring in today's guest who happens to be not only a client of mine from my business mentorship programs, but who also specializes in helping people deal with stress. April Likins is a board-certified health coach who received training at both Duke Integrative Medicine AND the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. Driven by her own past health collapse and health challenges, she's fiercely passionate about helping women thrive inside and out. April's specialty is helping professional women and female entrepreneurs reduce stress, find balance, and feel the joy and freedom to walk in their purpose, passions, and callings. I got to know April last year because she became a client of mine, and I've been watching her business evolve and flourish, and it's been amazing. In particular, I want you to note how specific April is with her niche and the area she specializes in with her work in the wellness space, because that is such a key piece to why she's been having great success in her business.
