While education is important that is not why they were coming to see me. They wanted change- change in their health and their lives. They wanted transformation.I needed a way to help my clients through the emotional journey of making dietary changes. I needed a well thought out path that I could guide my clients through to help them on their journey of self discovery and change. BUT I didn’t have the time in my practice to sit down and map out all the steps. I wanted something that would help them change their diet but connect the mind and body to the process of change for a full transformation.Nanci and Lydia advertised an “8 week done for you program” and I’ll be honest, I was skeptical. I have been through a LOT of continuing education(BIN, RWP, RESTART) and I didn’t need to get something that I already had. I needed NEW content for my clients. I needed practical tips and tools I could apply RIGHT AWAY.About 3 weeks into the program, my practice started to shift. I found I could incorporate much of the information into existing client packages. Clients where giving great feedback like “I didn’t realize this was an issue for me” referring to one of the exercises that helped her understand why she couldn’t move her health forward. I didn’t need to point it out she worked it out through the exercise and came to her own conclusion. It was very powerful to see such a simple exercise have such a profound effect on a client. I was seeing clients connect the mind/body/nutrition dots- this was shifting client behaviors.If you know me, you know I am a very critical thinker. I cannot tell you how pleased I am at investing in this program. Lydia and Nanci are very generous and the information is practical and applicable to nearly every client you will see. I didn’t have to do all the hard work, I just had to implement what I learned and watch my clients grow.I wished I had this when I first started my practice. I would have saved so much time and money in the long run.
I have just completed the program and it’s already improved the way I’m working. One of the challenges I had was how to support clients in getting the results they want. I was excellent at providing information of the “whys” and here’s “what to do” but not so great at helping them do those things….the “how”. It’s really an important piece to helping clients uncover the obstacles that may be in their way and prevent them from having success. This course provides exactly that. It’s simple. It’s done for you and you can implement everything right away. You can utilize the done for you program(Balance + Thrive) with individual clients or use it in a class. It’s so easy to do that I was able to implement pieces of it right away and in a group course currently. It’s so great because it goes deeper into relationship to food and helping clients move through obstacles. These really were the missing pieces I needed in my practice and now I have them. It’s really made such a difference in how I feel about my work, how I show up and how my clients see me. I highly recommend taking the course. It’s worth every penny and awesome!!!
I have been in practice for 5 years now and to be honest, I was getting tired of writing protocols for clients only to find they were mostly non-complaint of my suggestions. Enter the Balance & Thrive program. I never knew how fun this work could be! This program has not only given me powerful tools, in the form of done-for-you lessons to use with clients, but it has also made client sessions fun again! Beyond that, the 7-part session structure has been a game changer. I only wish I’d had this in my hands when I began my practice. My advice is - don’t wait until you’re burned out on this work. If you want to see results with your clients instead of leaving it to chance and begin truly enjoying your work, bring Balance & Thrive into your practice now.
....As a HUGE bonus, I ended up with a full program to offer my clients that is amazing! The content is really a perfect supplement to what I had to offer as a NTC. Mindset can be such a stumbling block for our clients. This program enables clients to address the obstacles they face, with our help.Speaking of mindset, it turns out my own needed to change!Through Ignite, I realized that my own fear and lack of confidence was really holding me back. I learned how to frame things in a more positive way, which allowed me to go out of my comfort zone in reaching out to people and in setting prices that valued my time and expertise. Charging what I am worth is enabling me to make the extra income that I need as a single mom, and avoid dropping my business and getting a job that makes me miserable.I feel that Lydia and Nanci make such a great team. They each have many beautiful gifts which complement the other. This lends a fullness to the program that may be missing from others. Throughout this experience, I received accountability in taking action, encouragement when I was down, and inspiration to dream big.I was a bit nervous to make another investment before getting my business off the ground, but I made that back just taking 2 clients through the 8 week program. Even if it had taken me longer, it would still have been so worth it. Ignite has enriched my business so much. I definitely wouldn’t be where I am now without it.
My name is Amy Gonzalez and my biggest challenge before taking the Ignite program was lack of confidence and undervaluing my service.Lydia and Nanci have such a unique blend of personalities and knowledge that truly make this program shine. I felt fully supported and valued as a participant in their program.My biggest takeaway from the program was learning how to speak to clients. I was caught in the mentality of having to speak the science but found that people just want to feel heard and know that you understand how they feel! This released some of the pressure I had put on myself because I can just be the listening ear that they need while giving them the gentle guidance.The done for you program also added additional tools to my toolbox to help guide my clients down the mind/body side of eating and has been such a complementary addition to my practice. I feel that I have now gained the direction that I needed in my practice, which was something lacking in the previous education and programs I’ve taken.I was even able to raise my prices and had my record month after I implemented the things I had learned. Now that I have found my own confidence, I can allow my clients’ confidence to shine as well. I can’t thank Lydia and Nanci enough for offering this program. It is worth every dollar spent!
