It’s National Small Business Week. I want to support my young entrepreneurs who have the yearning to make a change in their community and build economic independence. The best way to do that is with a health and wellness business.

Setting up the business is not hard. Once you set it up, you need to launch your business and get customers in the door. The best way to do that is with some great health programming. You will find a ton of ideas and a great network to facilitate that in the IIN program. I am an IIN graduate and an ambassador for the program. It is everything you need to know about the health and wellness industry and the skillsets you need to make your health store business even more attractive in your community.
Download the IIN Program Overview to learn more about a career in health coaching and all the different ways that can look like for you, a breakdown of the program tuition cost, and an overview of the curriculum in the Health Coach Training Program.
This program is not cheap nor is starting a business. I went all in on my businesses because I believed in myself to make things happen and I did make them all happen. I believe in investing in myself and it has always paid off.
