What you were doing before you decided to become an IAWP Wellness Coach?
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.
Why did you decide to become a Wellness Coach?
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.
How has being a student at the IAWP helped you?
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.
