Have you ever asked an engineer for directions? It can be an excruciatingly painful experience. Many times, you’ll end up confused… staring at a napkin with a map of the whole city.

Instead, today I promise we’ll follow what’s called “The Law of Parsimony” (which basically states: the simplest answer is usually the best answer).

So, while engineers are famous for over-thinking things (we do it all the time), today it’s all about proven, old-school, simple ideas that will change your life (and the world) if followed.

It’s time to create your dream life of service and success.

There’s never been a better time for you to take your personal health journey, licenses and/or certifications and begin to serve the world – in a big way!

We rarely talk about the business of health, but we also know that when we first started it really helped us to see how other people did it and learned how to follow them. It helped us believe it was possible and showed us the steps forward when even getting the first sale seemed impossible.

Today, let us show you why…

  1. If you’ve got a license, certification or are working towards one, do you think you could get someone on the phone and give them free value for 15 minutes? I think you can and should.
  2. Do you think you could turn the same 15-minute conversation into 30 paying clients per month? Once you get the fundamentals and some practice, this is much easier than it seems.
  3. Do you think you could be making over $20,000 a month consulting with people, helping them restore their health and doing it from home? To get to this point is actually simple: follow in the steps of people who’ve done it.

Many of you have asked for more “behind the scenes” details about how we were able to turn our passion for health into a full-time career over the last 6 years.

This week, we’re going to pull back the curtain and share details about how we got to where we are today… starting with one of the pivotal decisions that allowed us to FINALLY quit our jobs.

It was January 2013… and two broke kids from Michigan decided to start an unusual health consulting experiment.

The days leading up to this moment were nerve-racking. They were scared, tired, and weren’t sure if it was the right thing to do, I’m curious what you would have done?

Here are the facts:

  • Their blog and online business was a full-time commitment, but wasn’t making enough money to pay the bills. They were working day jobs as engineers, still broke, and drowning in debt.
  • Their talented and experienced business coach told them it was a STUPID idea to start a health consulting practice and they were sure to fail.
  • They didn’t have any formal medical licenses or credentials… and while they had taken specialized health training courses, they figured no one would listen.
  • But… they got emails every day asking them to work 1-on-1 with sick people who they felt they could help.
  • However, they were already exhausted, working two full-time jobs and concerned that the consulting practice would be job number 3, overworking them and making them sick again.

The options were simple:

  1. Keep struggling to build an online product based business, even though they hadn’t made any real money in the first 3 years
  2. Shut down the blog, stop helping people, and resign to their 9-5 day jobs as engineers, where they were often unable to affect change and were just another number.
  3. Launch an unusual health consulting experiment. What’s unusual about it? They weren’t doctors. They weren’t New York Times best-selling authors. They were just two “health engineers” who beat their chronic illness and wanted to help others do the same and they knew, in their hearts, people needed them.

Based on the facts, what would you have done?

Lucky for us, we chose option 3. But there’s something you didn’t know…

Before we took the leap, we needed to hear 6 words. [click to continue…]

sunrise-2015

My heart was pounding… I was so excited. And then in one glance at the screen, it was all gone.

I was pissed.

There’s nothing more frustrating than showing up to a class and realizing that you already knew everything.

Unless you show up and the content being taught isn’t even what you signed up for (not cool).

This has happened to me way too many times…

Which is why I need to talk to you today. See, it’s January. It’s a new year. It’s a fresh start. It’s the year of taking action… and it’s Thursday. (I know, who cares about Thursday but I happen to like them.)

Jordan and I have been discussing our goals, dreams and plans for 2015. And it would be silly if we didn’t ask you specifically what we could help you with.

But WHY?

Brea-and-Gracie

That’s a picture of my two dogs, Brea and Gracie. They’re both around 9 years old now… and you can tell they feel it. Brea limps around with bad arthritis in her hips and Gracie has mini seizures a few times a week. It’s tough watching my babies get old…

We’ve always fed them the best food we can find.

But I’m embarrassed to tell you this… it wasn’t until I recently met Rob Hendrickson from Full Bucket that I ever thought about giving my dogs probiotics. I know, it’s crazy right?! All the research I’ve read over the years about probiotics and how important they are for HUMANS… yet I never once thought about giving them to my dogs.

Now that I’ve looked into it more, dog’s are pretty much just like us humans… In fact, recent research has revealed that 70 – 80% of all canine disease starts somewhere in the GI tract and veterinarians are also dealing with pets that have GI disease, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, chronic constipation, diarrhea, stress gut, high-protein feeds, and many more gut related issues.

(I know, I’m still not sure why I’m just now getting this…)

After we got to know Rob, he sent some samples of their Dog Probiotic to my house and I was amazed at how much it helped the pain in Brea’s hips… (not to mention how it improved her stinky dog farts. :)

We started talking about sharing this with our community, but I was hesitant… I mean, how many people have dogs?

(It turns out 70-80 million people have dogs in the U.S. alone.)

So, we asked him, “Hey Rob, can we do something special for all the dog owners in our community and give away a bunch of 30-day supplies of your dog probiotic?[click to continue…]

Constipation

Learn step-by-step strategies to stop your diarrhea… (and eliminate the root causes once and for all) on our latest live event coming up. Click here to grab a discounted ‘early bird’ ticket.

Diarrhea can be scary…

I’ll never forget the day in 2007… I was having diarrhea for the 13th time and frantically Googling “diarrhea” and “how to stop diarrhea.”

Panic ripped through my chest when I read the search results: “Diarrhea kills 2,195 children every day—more than AIDS, malaria, and measles combined.

WHAT!?? Diarrhea could actually kill me?  

I couldn’t ignore this anymore… it was happening every day now… and the doctor’s orders weren’t helping. Everything I was trying didn’t work and deep down I knew I couldn’t live on Imodium AD for the rest of my life.

I was wasting away from malnourishment and low energy but the worst was I literally felt chained to the toilet. I couldn’t venture more than 15 feet from the bathroom… for fear of having an accident. Not to mention, I was in trouble for missing so much work, and I was saying “no” to every social event my friends and family invited me to.

Diarrhea Can Completely Control Your Life

If you’re anything like me, you know that every time you get that funny feeling in your gut… that sinking, rumbling feeling, you know it’s going to be a miserable day.

Diarrhea disrupts just about everything in your life. Your body is in pain and the energy tank is on empty.

Despite your desire to stop the diarrhea, the only options you typically hear from Modern Medicine are powerful drugs, tests and surgery. So, you feel like a cornered animal… Afraid, Frustrated and Angry. That’s when you start trying all kinds of alternative medicine ideas… except that most of those won’t end up working for you either.

How do I know? Because for years I literally had diarrhea 10-15 times a day. I tried almost everything you’ve ever heard of… modern medicine and alternative medicine combined. It wasn’t until I was at my wit’s end, thinking like an engineer, I started listening to my body and I began looking at the problem completely different. [click to continue…]
