I was a nurse

heather brittain

Nine months ago I hopped into Module 1 at the IAWP with a big dream and no direction. I knew that my work as a full-time nurse was purposeful but misaligned. My passions and values differed from my role responsibilities, and I couldn’t stand to sit around waiting for weekends and retirement, especially at 26 years old….

Life is so much bigger than dead end jobs and passions on pause. I’m stubborn enough to appreciate that. I think initially I thought it was like any other degree/certification - 12 modules, finish up in a few months, and then see what happens. Man, oh man, was I wrong. I never expected to have a full business up and running by this January.

I am so grateful for the IAWP for making my dreams a bigger reality than I ever believed, and teaching me how to remain healthy and well in the process.

Sandra Payne

I had a 13-year successful career as an RN. I began exploring natural health alternatives for my own illness of depression and found hope and success in learning to manage my symptoms without medication.

Since joining the IAWP, my life my life has been consistently aligned with the training. It has opened doors to new opportunities and created the foundation I was seeking.

Shamika Wallace

Even though I have the background as a Nurse, I learned so much about holistic wellness and how to help individuals.

I’m so completely grateful for the IAWP because they have allowed me to transition into a coaching role so that I can help individuals one-on-one understand what’s going on with their mind, their bodies, their soul and spirit and really get them to a complete 360 degree of health and wellness.

I think initially I thought this was like any other degree/certification - 12 modules, finish up in a few months, and then see what happens. Man, oh man, was I wrong. I never expected to have a full business up and running by this January. Although things have fallen into place so quickly and, for the first time, so intentionally,

I am so grateful for the IAWP making my dreams a bigger reality than I ever believed, and teaching me how to remain healthy and well in the process. Anxious feelings and limiting beliefs continue to be explored every day right now, but just a huge THANK YOU to those that have supported, and a KEEP GOING to those who are looking at the stars – your dreams aren’t as far off as you think.

Through my training at the IAWP, I found the missing answers to aligning my purpose with the rest of my life.

Best of all, finding my purpose has meant being able to create a career I love and live life on my own terms. I don’t have to climb a corporate ladder or do something that doesn’t feel right to me. I get to decide. Today I can proudly say I’ve found my purpose - Wellness, coaching and empowering women.

This is a dream come true. I CANNOT believe just 6 months ago I was feeling so purposeless and down and out and now I'm taking on PAYING clients! I KNOW if I can do this, anyone can.

When I was let go from my corporate job, I had no doubt that this was my opportunity to finally be able to contribute something meaningful to the world. When I found the IAWP, I enrolled within 2 weeks of getting laid off.

I learned that wellness coaching is a real thing that people get paid for and it can be a lucrative career with the proper support, commitment, and business tools.

I also found a new community of like-minded people who want to make a real difference in their corner of the world using the power of wellness and coaching. If I can do it, anyone can do it. You have the power within you.

This has been so exciting for me! One of the reasons I went into this field was to be able to stay at home with my kids while following my passion, working from home.

I now run my coaching practice from home, working with clients virtually.

During my training I took on paying clients, created a program to support moms and launched my coaching practice called Redesigning Motherhood.

And I am excited to share I just had another $10,000 month!

I was an anxious law school student. I worried about everything and my stomach was in knots all of the time. When I became a law school professor, I constantly had students coming to me who reminded me of myself. I could no longer ignore all of those other issues. A lightbulb went on one day and I knew I wanted to become a Wellness Coach.

The IAWP has exceeded my expectations and more! The quality of the program and the depth of the teaching is what has really impressed me. There are a lot of programs out there, but there are not a lot of programs where you feel the leaders are truly invested in your success and you're getting the most out of the program...and that's what IAWP does so well.

I was in wealth management for over 10 years. And I loved it...until I didn't anymore. Until there was this feeling inside of me that there was more for me.

I hit a point where I got burned out. And I started getting symptoms in my body. When I came across the IAWP, I got a reset.

I'm so happy the universe led me on this path! I love my life right now, it's amazing!

When I enrolled in the IAWP Wellness Coach Certification program, I had wanted to help others improve their lives for a long time, but hadn’t yet found the right method. Being a student in this program has provided me with so much more than great preparation. It has given me the space and opportunity to learn about myself, explore my dreams, work through long-standing blocks and come away with the tools to begin a new, never-ending adventure of helping others. The IAWP program gave me so many amazing results I’d never expected. Had I been seeking a way of improving my own life, I couldn’t have found a better program. The fact that I was looking for training to help heal others and, in the process, so significantly healed myself feels like an enormous two-for-one. I feel very fortunate to have found the IAWP!

I chose to train as a health coach through the IAWP as I'd researched providers well and thought that the IAWP stood out for their structured and thorough approach: The three pillars of learning in Wellness, Coaching and Business appealed to me from the outset.

Only through the process of completing the course did I realise what an amazing, transformative, cleverly woven course it actually is though.

I'll always be thankful for the support, guidance and growth that I've experienced through the amazing IAWP team, and the peer community which it builds; not to mention the circle of like minded friends that I've made/met in the process.

Amazing training and support! Coming from a corporate background with zero prior experience within a holistic field, just a new sense of purpose, the will to learn, and a passion to help women like me, I was concerned about how an online programme might work for me.

I needn’t have worried; a comprehensive classroom, too many live support calls to mention, as well as a fantastic, supportive online community.
