Did you know that a certification is just the very beginning of what you actually need to grow a profitable health coaching practice?
(Actually, if we're being completely honest, you don't even really need a certification at ALL to build a health coaching business because health coaching is an unregulated profession.)
Here is what you do need to build a successful coaching business:
  • The ability to share your own wellness journey
  • Complete confidence in your abilities
  • An experienced, straightforward and trusted mentor to guide you 
  • A safe and functional coaching method that allows you to help any client regardless of their condition or health goal 
  • Resources, tools, and training that simplify your coaching approach and keep you low-risk
  • Continuing education and professional development brought to you by leading industry experts 
  • A solid support network standing behind you
The big issue, however, is that none of this is included in many certification programs. As a result, most aspiring coaches are left completely in the dark after completing their education.
I want you to know that if this is how you're feeling, you're not alone. The majority of coaches I work with feel this same exact way. This is why they come to me, and why I built this group.
Six years ago, before coaching even became mainstream, I was facing the same dilemma. I had earned my certification, yet I lacked the business and coaching knowledge.

Through trial and error, I was able to figure it all out on my own. But it took me much longer than it should have to build a thriving practice. 

And unfortunately, most coaches don't have years to spare. Most are working full-time and building their coaching businesses on the side with massive dreams that one day, they'll be able to pursue health coaching full-time.
I'm here to make this process much easier for you.
An online mentorship group created by trusted health coach mentor and founder of the Institute for Functional Health Coaching®, Carmen Hunter, for health coaches who are serious about growing successful coaching businesses and want the solutions and support to make their goals a reality.

Sandy N., health coach

I have gotten so much out of this already. Plus you make me smile and laugh. I am so glad i get to be apart of this amazing group and thank you for all of your hard work on putting this all together this is not easy work. Even though you make it sound effortless. Thank you.

Linda H., health coach

Carmen Hunter is a bottomless pit of nutrition knowledge and I HIGHLY recommend her if you need more information on an area of health that you are not as knowledgeable about. As a health coach, I work with an array of clients and it’s nearly impossible for me to find time to research and locate appropriate resources for all of their needs. After one call with Carmen, she provided me with a list of excellent resources to send to my clients and answered all of my questions! I will definitely use her again as she makes running my business easier and more effective + I feel like I have a new friend I can go to if I need to be advised! -
