As Laura and Ilene near the 6-month mark in their training at IIN, we return check in on the progress they’ve made since Chapter 2. In this episode, they share their thoughts on the business-building principles they’re learning in the training, and how they see their individual Health Coach careers unfolding once the training program ends.
Through the years I’ve mentored many IIN graduates, and they all have similar concerns.
They wonder, “How will I make money?”
I answer, “Start doing the work.”
They say, “But I’m afraid no one will take me seriously.”
I answer, “Start doing the work.”
They say, “I don’t know where to start.”
I answer, “Start anywhere. Do the work.”
Trust me, when I started my business I felt clueless.
So how did I go from making zero dollars to matching my husband’s salary this month?
I started doing the work.
For Corona Brady, when a spiraling host of physical problems seemed to require a lifetime of prescriptions, she did not take the news lying down. Wanting to be the master of her body, her health—and her life—she learned to use diet and lifestyle choices to cure her ailments without any medication.
So when she discovered IIN a few years later, enrolling was a no-brainer. After thoroughly implementing the principles of holistic, sustainable wellness in her own life, she felt driven to foster healthy changes in the lives of others.
Two and a half years after graduating, Corona continues to inspire clients by practicing what she preaches. “I’m the real deal,” she says. “I’ve gone from being clueless, to living these principles every day.”

2014 marks nearly twenty years since the first genetically modified tomato was introduced for sale in grocery stores in the U.S. Today, more than 8 genetically engineered crops are spreading throughout our food supply. Genetic engineering uses different biotechnology techniques to transfer genes from one species to another, giving an organism a trait that it didn’t have before.
Should we be worried GMOs are in our food supply? YES! There is currently no consensus on the safety of GMOs, and we are unsure of long term effects on human health and the environment.
Last week, Joshua Rosenthal made a particularly meaningful visit. Not only did the IIN Founder, Director, and Primary teacher connect with students and graduates for an afternoon of discussion and shared passion, but he did it in his hometown of Toronto.
One of the most common questions we receive from prospective students is in regards to the qualifications and scope of practice for professionals in the field of nutrition & wellness.
Many people are familiar with the term “nutritionist” when it comes to someone who helps others acquire healthy eating habits, but the details beyond that tend to get a little blurry.
Here are the distinctions to help you get clear on the differences between the three terms, and decide which is the right fit for you.
In early January, we began following Integrative Nutrition students Laura and Ilene in their journey through the Health Coach Training Program. As they work toward becoming their happiest, healthiest selves, we document their transformation, giving you a window into just what it’s like to take on the challenge of becoming a Health Coach.
In Chapter 1, Laura and Ilene shared their goals and intentions for the year.
When I started my health coaching business, I intended to fill my roster with private clients in order to earn a good yearly salary. And I started off strong!
But then a few things happened.
First, I found myself finishing up with client programs and not filling their spots right away. Every time I had open space in my calendar, I panicked. If I wasn’t seeing a paying client, I wasn’t getting paid. And if I wasn’t getting paid then how was I going to earn enough to live on?
Happy New Year! The beginning of 2014 presents an exciting time to create new goals, make positive lifestyle changes, and reach your full potential. There’s no better time to learn more about Health Coach Training Program, which can help you become your healthiest and happiest self in the coming year.

We’re happy to launch the first chapter of the Health Coach Training Program Video Diary, where you’ll follow the journeys of Ilene and Laura as they progress throughout the course. In this first video, they share their goals and intentions for the year. Watch below!
There are times when life knocks so loudly on your door, it's impossible to ignore the message. That happened to me five years ago, the moment I realized that I needed to become a Health Coach.
Several years prior, I was suffering with multiple health issues that overlapped and fed into one other. Seasonal allergies precipitated chronic sinus, which encouraged random and painful migraines. Infertility and miscarriages led to a hormonal imbalance, which caused sadness and depression. A compromised immunity from too many pharmaceuticals led to fibromyalgia and symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis. And everything seemed to point to weight gain; the excess weight led to all of the above.
