I have to blog about the successes of one of my good friends, Maureen. I've known her since we were both students at Powell High School and when I was living in London, she was as well! We randomly connected on Facebook and she came to my 26th birthday party in Putney. That was almost nine years ago. Since then, Maureen married (her English boyfriend) Sam and they have a smart, fabulous little boy. Those are all certainly successes - but that's not what I'm blogging about today.
Maureen began research more than a year ago about entrepreneurship. She wanted to start her own company and began by interviewing successful women business owners. After gathering information, she sought out a mentor and joined a program where she learned techniques about setting and meeting personal goals. Soon after that, guess what!? She started her own business as a wellness coach! (Obviously I'm very proud of her!)
Maureen has a background of working in the wellness and health industry for more than 10 years and promotes the idea of integrated health and wellness education. She has a Master's degree in public health from Boston University and recently started her own website for her business. The reason for this blog post is to talk about the fabulous fact that Maureen asked me to be a beta tester for her online wellness coaching program.
We're in Week 2 of the program and I've learned several things so far. During the first week, we set our personal health goals and during the second week we're working on nutrition and healthy eating choices (writing down everything that we're taking in and learning about how many calories our bodies need daily). Maureen provides readings each week, interactive forms to discuss where we are individually in the program, and we have the option of meeting with her and others in the program twice a week for online chat sessions.
Maureen will be taking her second class of team members in April. The great thing about all of this is that you meet with her online and through email. It is extremely convenient. You don't even have to leave your home or office to participate. I'm very impressed thus far. If you're interested in her services, please email her at "yourwellnesscoachclt" at or "@" "gmail.com." (I separated her email address to protect her from spam.)
The best part about this modern approach to health and wellness is that online coaching makes participants feel like they are part of a "family" of people improving their health within a program and finding someone like Maureen as a coach means encouragement, knowledge, and support are just an email away!
