My life was fine before B-School. I had a successful 32-year-old business. I was happily married with 2 children and 3 grandchildren.
My parents lived in Florida, and my son in England. It was hard to travel and visit. It was expensive and it was hard to take time off work.
I was an interior designer and supported my family with my business. In 2009 I got pretty sick and changed the way I ate to affect my health. My big dream became to build businesses for health coaches – something they could walk into and start coaching.
But my bigger dream was to be able to work from anywhere and visit my son and his kids and my parents. B-School not only taught me how to conduct a healthy business online, it connected me to people who have enriched my life. I consider my experience in B-School one of the most valuable investments I’ve ever made. I more than made my money back by the 2nd week and today it’s priceless.
Funny story: I didn’t tell my husband how much B-School cost – I knew he would flip a gasket and I knew I was going to do it anyway, so we just skipped the gasket part. About 10 months after I started he asked me how much it cost. I told him and he said, “Worth every penny.”
Without B-School I would still be in my brick and mortar. There would be no The Health Coach Group without Marie. I would not have been able to spend weeks with my dad a couple months before he died – I would have missed it. I would still be relying on Skype 12 months a year instead of getting real life in-person hugs from my grandkids. I would still be driving a Saturn instead of a BMW that makes me smile when I pull away from stop lights.
My work also enables 12 other people to have incredible income and I help 1,600 health coaches a year set up prosperous businesses with programs that transform the lives of thousands of people. Life doesn’t get much better than this.
