This is a very difficult Blog for me to post but one I have been thinking about for quite some time. I believe it is time for me to share my story. My hope is people will be able to relate to me and feel […]
What is emotional eating? I’ve asked myself that many times as I was thrown into the depths of some very stressful times beginning in 2016. What I have learned is that emotional eating is reaching for certain foods that trigger those temporary “feel-good” chemicals in […]
Hello, my family and friends! I have recently decided to start a new business adventure to supplement my dōTERRA Essential Oils business. I have been a Wellness Advocate with dōTERRA for over 6 years which has been amazing! I have felt for some time now that I am supposed to be doing something in the health and wellness field that compliments dōTERRA. After much prayer and patience (I am not a patient person), I know God has given me a direction. I am in the process of becoming a certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach.
What is a Health Coach? I asked myself this very question when God put this on my heart. My job as a Nutrition Health Coach is not to tell you what to do but to be an advocate with your health by assisting, guiding and holding you accountable. The goal is to work towards a lasting lifestyle change that is gradual and attainable without feeling deprived. I will empower you to take control of your physical and emotional health and wellness by arming you with the proper tools for a plan of action.
Wow! It’s taken me a while to get the courage to actually type that! I will let you in on a little secret. I have not been a very confident person for most of my life. I have had limiting beliefs about myself such as, “No one will want to work with you.” “You aren’t capable.” “You aren’t smart enough.” “You are not a leader.” I finally decided to tell myself to just STOP IT! I have had 2 recent life-changing moments. I have had many people come to me and ask me questions regarding nutrition and tell me that I am very knowledgeable when it comes to nutrition and essential oils but I didn’t really believe it. It wasn’t until recently that I had 2 different people say to me things that really resonated. One of my good friends signed up with a dōTERRA account. I always do a follow up with those who want one and she said to me, “Dani, God has given you a gift of helping people.” The other was a man that I have known for years who owns a nutrition center in Bozeman, MT. He has a radio talk show every Saturday morning on various health-related topics. I was blessed enough to be on his show speaking about my story as an elite competitive runner and how I have implemented dōTERRA into my health focus. Once the show was over, we had a chance to chat with each other for a few minutes. He looked at me and said, “Dani, you are special.” "You have a special way about you and something to offer others.” Ok, I know I can’t ignore these statements and it was time for me to take this to another level. There was a switch within me and I actually started to believe these words!!
At the time of these 2 conversations, I didn’t know what this was going to look like but I knew God was going to do something with me in this area of health. I now know without a doubt that I am supposed to pursue the direction of a Nutrition Health Coach. I don’t know yet what that will look like but I don’t need to right now. I only know my heart and love is to help people with their health and wellness so that is just what I am going to do!!
