How a New Health Coach Started Her Successful Business Before Graduation

ActionKerry Fleckenstein of Green Fields Health and Wellness is a new health coach who will be graduating from IIN on March 2013. Much kudos to her, she did not wait until she “knows enough” or even graduate before she “Gets Out There”. As of right now (Jan 2013) Kerry is already working out of a space in a Chiropractor’s office, and has started to offer a variety of programs to capture clients at different price points.

TAKING ACTION is really a critical part of getting your business off the ground and up and running. And, having the guts to get out there and ASK FOR THE MONEY! I remember when I was 3 months into my IIN program, I signed my first coaching clients at $150/month with the certificate that says I can coach people barely out of the envelop, and a bare-bone website. Essentially, without having to wait until I graduate and “know enough”, I shaved 9 months of my journey – and think about the opportunity cost

So, back to Kerry… I want to share her story in her own words to show you that IT IS POSSIBLE!

kerry“Slideberry allowed me to have programs that were more professional and easily marketed within a reasonable amount of time. By using the Done-For-You programs I am more comfortable offering multiple programs, workshops etc. It allows me to progress and expand and takes some of the work out of it. It takes a long time to set up your business and put together content. I am working out of space at a Chiropractors office and this let me have programs and services to offer right off the bat.

Slideberry’s Done-For-You materials give me many more options and ways to reach potential clients than saying ‘I have a 6 month  program.’ I can offer a 21-day email program (great as a incentive give-away etc.) Material for presentations (the hardest thing to put together in my opinion) and it got me start creating audio programs which would have been a distant thought without Slideberry’s Done-For-You New Year Group Program.

I have been tremendously satisfied with the materials that I have ordered. So far I have put together the 21-day email program and it has been going out for a week. This has been wonderful and it was easy to make it my own and launch.

For the most part I use Slideberry’s materials as a way to make all my extra money and help me to have content to offer above and beyond my typical “signature” program. It has allowed me to start to be successful as a new Health Coach just about to graduate. I thank you it has taken a lot of the stress out of getting started.”

Yay Kerry!
