Hear what students and graduates of our thriving, inspiring community have to say….
She healed her own health and created her dream career
“I went into the IAWP program expecting to learn information and techniques to help others, but what I didn’t expect was how much it would affect my personal life. Receiving the coaching sessions and working with my student buddy changed my life. I’d struggled with anxiety and depression for years, had no idea how sensitive my body was to dairy and gluten, and didn’t realize just how hard I’d been on myself. The IAWP enabled me to pursue my dream of being a Wellness Coach so I could travel and teach yoga…I’m also now writing wellness articles for various publications and plan to publish my wellness memoir later this year!”
IAWP Wellness Coach
Turned her hobby for health and wellness into a career
“Before I found the IAWP, I was working in a corporate job and wanted to follow my passion doing something I loved. I had been diagnosed with a thyroid condition known as Hashimoto’s and began my own discovery of how to heal myself naturally. I was searching for a way to turn my “hobby” for health and wellness into a career. The IAWP’s Wellness Coach Training Program provided me not only a clear path to my passion, but the success tools to make it happen. I love all of the done-for-you marketing tools I received like workshop scripts, client handouts, and my own website. And because of the focus on holistic business training, I was able to leave my day job and jump start my new wellness coaching business! If you want to start a career in health and wellness and be fully supported in your success, the IAWP is your one-stop-shop! The IAWP showed me how to turn my story into my success. I’ve launched my own thyroid health online program and am now teaching mom’s with low thyroid diagnoses how to take control of their health and live symptom-free.”
IAWP Wellness Coach
She’s never felt more confident in her life.
“Without the IAWP Wellness Coach Certification program, I would not be where I am in my business today. In fact, I wouldn’t even have a business at all. When I first joined the program, I had no intention of creating my own business, but as I went through the course, I quickly FELL IN LOVE with the idea. The information and the support that was available in the business modules and included in the IAWP membership allowed me to hit the ground running after I graduated from the program…I am now in a very exciting and creative place as I carry out designing my signature programs, building my website with my web design team, building my target audience with my marketing strategies, and creating my first teleseminar to officially launch my business! I’m even more excited to report that I received my first paying client the other day! I have never felt so confident and so ready to do something in my life and I want to express my gratitude to Suzanne Monroe and the IAWP for preparing me and inspiring me to step onto the path that I was meant for! I have no doubt in my mind that I will be extremely successful in my business.”
IAWP Wellness Coach
She turned her passion into her career
“Before finding the IAWP, I had taken quite a few courses in health and wellness. Even though I had acquired all of this knowledge, I was still missing something. I had no idea how to bring it all together to actually start a business helping people. When I found the IAWP, a lightbulb went on and I realized that this was the missing piece. I knew this was the program for me. As a current student at the IAWP, I’m really enjoying my experience. The program is so personable and interactive, which I love. I also get to interact with students from all over the world. I live in Spain but now I have an international community of like-minded friends and colleagues. I have no doubt that the IAWP Wellness Coach Certification program is the foundation to everything else I have been doing up until this point. It’s given shape and meaning to what was just my passion and has shown me how to turn it into an actual career.”
IAWP Wellness Coach
She’s helping her clients create big breakthroughs
“I worked at a start-up solar company. I’ve always been environmentally conscious, so it was a great job to land. The problem was that I was expected to work 6 days a week, long hours, no lunch break out of the office, and after just 1 1/2 years, I was burnt out. My life was so out of balance – I was moody and angry, couldn’t see my friends often, had no downtime to recharge. I knew I had to make a change. After assessing my current life situation, I knew I had to make a change. Since I always had a passion for holistic wellness, I started researching wellness jobs and came across the IAWP. I immediately knew it was the right program for me. It’s an all-encompassing program that teaches not only the wellness content, but also the coaching methods and how to set up your business. I knew if I was going to take the leap and create my own business, I’d need a strong support system behind me. The IAWP provides me with a community that makes me feel supported and confident.
Being a student in the IAWP program has changed my life! I am happier, more confident, and know that I’m on the right track. Before the program, I despaired that I would be stuck in passionless job to pay my bills and fund my next escape from the mundane routine. Now, I’m creating a life I’m proud of, and know that there are so many options available to me. I want to help others realize their dreams, just as I’m doing now.
I went from feeling hopeless that I would ever find my purpose and passion, and now I am living it! I was able to take a chance on myself and my dreams, and it’s paying off. Life is now an exciting adventure that I am actively participating in, instead of passively hoping things improve. I have found my path, and it’s to help other people live happier lives. Becoming a Wellness Coach through the IAWP is the greatest decision I’ve ever made.
I am now the founder of Molly Wentzel Holistic Health Coaching. My signature program is Finding Fulfillment, a program designed to help clients have breakthroughs with their life goals, find their purpose, or just rebalance their life with stress management, confidence boosting, nutrition, and exercise. My signature program Finding Fulfillment is based on my own personal breakthrough. I realized that life is whatever we make it, and using that knowledge and everything I learned with IAWP, I created Finding Fulfillment. Any lifestyle change seems overwhelming and scary, but I’ve been through it myself and know how it feels to be on both sides of the situation. I support clients using my own personal experience.”
IAWP Wellness Coach
From trading “dollars for hours” to Costa Rica Wellness Retreat Leader
“Before I decided to become an IAWP Wellness Coach, I was running my own business as a Personal Trainer. I began to feel that ’7 year itch”, and decided I was ready to make a few changes to my business, and really take it to another level. I realized over the past 7 years that fitness and nutrition were only part of the equation when it came to living a healthy lifestyle, and I wanted to feel confident adding those other ‘parts’ to my services. I also was ready to change business models and offer programs instead of hourly services. I chose IAWP after an incredible amount of research because it offered the business side of coaching, which I needed more than anything, plus the holistic side. The program was fabulous, and with great webinars featuring the industry’s leading experts, it felt fun, easy, and inspiring to listen to their wise words. I have now created my new website and programs and look forward to helping more and more women live strong and switched on lives! Thanks IAWP and Suzanne Monroe, you are a genuine woman with so much love and guidance to give, it radiates through you!”
IAWP Wellness Coach
She discovered the missing piece to her own health and her clients’ lives
“I decided to become a wellness coach for both professional and personal reasons. Being a mental health therapist, I have always had a strong desire to help others. But I have felt there has long been a piece missing. So many of my clients struggle with depression and anxiety that while it does improve with therapy and medication, there seemed to be a disconnect between physical and mental health. Through the IAWP, I was able to really learn ow the things people eat, the quality of their sleep, and the levels of stress in their lives have a major impact on both their physical and mental health. I was personally drawn to become a wellness coach after experiencing my own struggles with my health. I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder in 2010 and since that time, I have read virtually every health and nutrition book I could get my hands on to try to understand and improve my health. I came across the IAWP during this process and finally feel like I found the community and support I was looking for, not only for my own health, but also for the clients I see. I am excited to share my newfound knowledge with others!
I have found such a wonderful community of like-minded, health conscious individuals that share a passion to help others create and maintain healthy lifestyles. Listening to Suzanne and the other experts speak and impart their knowledge and experience has been invaluable and though I am continuing to learn, I now feel I have the information and confidence to move forward in such an exciting field! Becoming a wellness coach has significantly expanded my knowledge and success as a mental health counselor. I have seen dramatic improvements in mood and lessened anxiety once we worked on specific ways to improve their sleep and talked about how specific foods can improve their digestion and their overall physical and mental health. I have seen such amazing improvements in my clients’ outlooks since incorporating what I have learned though the IAWP. I want to continue this success and share my knowledge. I’ve just opened my own wellness coaching practice and will eventually expand to provide a variety of wellness services to include wellness coaching, nutrition education, yoga and Pilates, classes, stress management skills, mindfulness, massage therapy, and chiropractic services. I never could have imagined this dream prior to joining the IAWP!”
IAWP Wellness Coach
Everything changed for her….
“Before I found the IAWP, I was a sales rep for an organic whole food supplement company for 10 years. After leaving that job, I decided to follow my dream and become a health and wellness coach. I got certified through another program and after it was over, began working feverishly to figure out how to get my business going. While I had gained the wellness knowledge and knew that I could help people, I was struggling to get clients and get my business off the ground and running. I had no idea that I even needed business training! I was missing the pieces I needed to actually turn my passion into a career and be a successful coach. Worse yet, I wasn’t able to help people with my education. When I found the IAWP Wellness Coach Certification program, everything started to change. I have learned more from the IAWP Wellness Coach Certification program than I could have ever imagined. I’m now getting the full training I really need to be successful in this field and am learning so much about wellness, coaching and business. What I love about the IAWP is that everything they teach you works. I’ve followed the exact systems they provide and immediately signed up my first client ! It’s true, you really can “get five clients fast” if you follow the program. The IAWP training has transformed my business and given me the tools I need to be confident, professional and successful. I am so excited I can now help people get to the root of their health issues and watch them transform into being healthier, happier and more fulfilled!”
IAWP Wellness Coach
She’s bringing wellness to the world
“I had over 14 years of experience in the wellness field yet I had no idea how to market myself, coach my clients, or make a living following my passion. I lacked confidence, had poor time management and had no system in place to attract clients for my programs. That all changed when I became a student at the IAWP. I am very happy to now be able to say I am an IAWP Certified Wellness Coach, my business has taken off and I’ve created more balance and confidence in all areas of my life.
In my business, results were dramatic. I began practicing the discovery session process taught at the IAWP. It’s just one of over 150+ business tools they provide. It was a simple tool so I put it to use right away. I followed the exact steps as they were outlined and signed up my first client on my first try! I couldn’t believe it was that easy, but it is. I was shocked because this was the first time I practiced the discovery process taught to me at the IAWP and it just simply works. I’m now using this simple business tool over and over again to grow my coaching business with amazing results.
I’ve had many successes, I’ll list just a few here:
- Being hired already for 4 speaking engagements!
- Attracting and enrolling new ideal clients for my program -just had my first $8000 month!
- Being able to truly empower clients to making last changes through the coaching method I learned at the IAWP
- Creating more balance in my life and improving my quality of life
- Contributing to my family’s income and taking the financial load off of my husband
- Having more quality time and fun with my family
- Physically, my weight has normalized without dieting and I have sharpened my professional look.
- Feeling excited and energized by what I do now
- And – this one I love – actually working less!
My life has changed in so many ways. Not only do I have purpose, confidence, excitement and so much to offer others but I have a system and the support to reach the people I’m meant to help. I am thrilled to provide more to those ready for real changes with lasting solutions. I am doing my part to bring peace, wellness and light into this world!”

IAWP Wellness Coach
“I wanted to say thank you…for all of your feedback and support. Just this week: an invitation to speak, a discovery session booked and a new program purchased. Feeling accomplished and grateful!”
Health & Wellness Coach
My training with the IAWP had opened up so many opportunities for me…
The IAWP gave me the knowledge and confidence to create these programs not only for individuals but for groups. I launched a new school program called INSIGHT that has reached 2500 kids already – teaching them how to live healthy and balanced lives.
Best of all, I am on the road to a new job that combines all my passions and pays twice what I’m currently making. I would say that since [working with] the IAWP things which are better than I imagined are coming my way. Thank you!
IAWP Wellness Coach
“Before learning the Core Coaching Method, I was under the impression that coaching meant creating a plan for clients and guiding them through it. The Core Coaching Method has helped me to effectively guide clients to their own solutions, help them uncover their deeper issues and…take [the] steps forward in their transformation. Now, I’m confidently guiding my clients to…create the lives they desire.”
Well-Being & Business Coach
“Before becoming a coach, I worked a full time desk job (that paid the bills, but I absolutely loathed it). I was unsure of the direction i wanted my life to go, but I knew a change needed to occur. As soon as I discovered the IAWP, I knew it was right for me…I was able to finally discover my niche + create a Signature System that I am proud of!
The most life-changing thing about this whole new chapter of my life is that I finally realized I don’t need to have a job in a corporate office at a desk everyday, that’s so not me and not what i like to do. And I’m so excited to be out working with people!”
Massage Therapist and IAWP Wellness Coach
“There isn’t anything left to chance. A success track is what they gave me; I will be forever grateful.”
“I was struggling with how to best describe and effectively market my specialty, which is natural hormone restoral for women 50+. Suzanne and the IAWP helped me really hone in on the specific solutions I offer to this group, and brand it in a way that speaks to my ideal clients. The result was Get Your Juicy Back, a program that effectively distinguishes me, clearly appeals to the women I can help, and provides a professional platform for my speaking and other projects.”
Susan Joyce Proctor, DAy
Ayurvedic Practitioner & Founder, GetYourJuicyBack.com
“This was the perfect program for me! It helped me learn tools to build my business, but more importantly, I was taught skills on coaching. This was the area I needed educated in the most…The CORE coaching method is an amazing way to help my clients get at the solutions on their own.
It has given me freedom that NO other profession has done…It has been fun to see my business grow as well as my following. It is hard work but so rewarding! I have discovered that I LOVE to share, educate, and empower my fellow mamas. This program has been such a blessing.”
“First off I wanted to thank you endlessly for creating this program. It has transformed my life….I have been able to work with 20 clients and have recently just sold two of my largest packages…
I also was featured as a guest on [the] radio for an hour discussing what I do and why! All of these doors have opened up for me to share my message of healing with the world and I keep getting confirmation that I am undoubtedly on the right path. “

A Personal Note from IAWP’s Founder, Suzanne Monroe
If you’ve read this far, you’re likely considering whether becoming a Wellness Coach is right for you. I want to share something with you.
Every day I have the opportunity to hear from new students joining our program. Over the years of connecting with 1000s of aspiring Wellness Coaches, I’ve noticed that every person has a journey that has brought them to this moment – the moment in which they decided it was time to share their passion for wellness with others and to take the step toward doing something they love with their life. That moment when you knew in your heart that this is what you’re meant to do. I love hearing the stories that brought people to their deciding moment.
What was your deciding moment? I’m guessing there has likely been something in your life, too, that has brought you to this point. Something that ignited your passion for wellness and the desire to help others. Maybe you underwent your own healing or helped a family member. Perhaps you saw the impact that making simple lifestyle changes can have on your health and you know you need to share that message with others.
Whatever your story, it’s that very journey that brought you to this point today and it will drive your passion from this day forward. Tap into that passion, because it will support you to make the right decision. Now you simply must decide if you’re meant to share your passion for health and wellness with others and be a part of the IAWP Community.
Consider the following as you make your decision…
What would it be like to help people everyday to live healthier?
What if instead of playing small and doing the same old thing, you decided that now was your time to do this for yourself and for those you’re meant to help?
What if, despite the fears you might have, you decided to follow your heart?
If you’re picturing an amazing future and ready to take this next step, I want to personally welcome you to the IAWP. Our community is waiting for you with open arms and we’re so excited to support you in sharing the message of wellness and creating a life you love as a Wellness Coach.
Love, Health & Success,
Founder, The International Association of Wellness Professionals
