November 13th 2018 – Keep on pluggin’

Less than a month since my last post, I’m making some serious strides towards the goal of my business launch around the beginning of the year.

Since my last post, I have signed up and completed the recertification for my CPR/AED training.

Since my last post, I have determined, with assistance from my team, the name of my business. I have sat on it for approximately 3 weeks without making any moves to lock it in. As of right now, the name of my business will be: Fit Together Health and Wellness.

Since my last post, I have met with my mentor, put together a business plan and packages for my clients. I am struggling with the price point right now and have yet to revisit it.

Since my last post, a lot of my time has been spent studying and preparing to take the Health Coach certification exam. I purchased the study material on October 15th 2018. Since making the purchase,  I have read the text book, I am halfway through the lesson exams, tests and reviews, I am starting to take small practice tests and I am listening to the audio and blog reviews.

What will I do in the coming weeks? Well, I need to upload the necessary documents in order to sit for the exam. I will continue my meticulous, repetitive study routine, and I hope to sign up for the exam. I hope to trademark my business name, purchase the website domain and start developing my website. I have yet to do this because I am waiting to hear back from my other mentor for guidance. I hope to complete the packages for my clients and to meet with my mentor again to further review my business plan and packages. I hope to start looking into creating business cards and possibly a pamphlet.

Above are all the tasks that have been keeping me very busy. To look at the whole picture is to see me excited, overwhelmed, focused, driven, tearful, full of doubts and questions, and contemplating my own ability to make this happen.

This is huge. This isn’t some hobby I want to create; I want this to be my livelihood. I want to be able to support my family with this income. I want this to be my career.

It’s been a roller-coaster, it’s quite comical thinking about it and envisioning my vacillating emotions regarding this huge feat. But the undeniable support does not waver – my team that is purvey to this huge shift is maintaining my forward motion. It takes a village and I’ve got it.
