Healthy Holidays

Help Your Customers Through the Holidays 

It has been an annual tradition of mine to assemble a group of friends, family, and clients and go through the weeks before the holidays with attainable goals, gratitude, inspiration, and acknowledgment of the things we get right.  It is an opportunity for spiritual growth as well as a chance to prevent losing ground physically during the holidays.

A few years ago I created a group program designed to be run on Facebook that took all the traditional aspects and put it all into a pretty package for our health coaches to use with their clients.  It went amazingly well and had a lovely side bonus of increasing everyone’s business.  You may sell it for a small amount like $99 -$127 or you can offer it for free with Healthy Habits as the program to feed into.  Wouldn’t you love to put 60 people into one of the Physician-Health Coach Weight Loss Programs on January 1!

Cathy helps health coaches build and maintain successful businesses that improve the lives of others.

This is unlike any of the other programs we have shared with you. You won’t be offering educational materials to your clients, instead, you will offer introspection, goal setting, accountability and peer support.


Everyone participates in their own way. They set goals and are accountable for their actions and progress at least once a week.


Goals should include…

  • Nutrition (adding in at least one healthy food per week)
  • Exercise (a minimum of 30 minutes 6 days a week)
  • Gratitude (take the time to be grateful for at least 3 things in your life daily)
  • Giving (challenge yourself to give without expectation of reciprocation once daily)

What is included for you?

  • An advertisement for Facebook, Twitter or even Pinterest.
  • An e-mail to welcome your clients and explain the program.
  • An instructional video that walks you through setting up your Facebook group is included, and it will show you what buttons to push, tell you what to enter into the appropriate boxes as well as providing a cover graphic for your group.
  • Example goals to give your clients comfort and a guide in setting their own goals.
  • A goal setting sheet to guide your clients in the right direction when setting meaningful goals.
  • Motivational graphics to post weekly in your group.
  • A calendar to help you track postings, topics, and activities in the group.
  • Discussion questions to quickly build camaraderie, trust, and openness in your group.
  • An opportunity to build your business by establishing confidence in an intimate relationship.
  • Alternative Religious Inspiration – Jewish and Christian

What this does not include:

  • Meal plans
  • Diets
  • Weight loss

Well, I didn’t intend for this to turn into a sales spiel …but felt like you may need a reminder in case you weren’t with us last year or don’t remember it. It’s good to know what it is and has to offer.  Use it.

I know this is repetitive…BUILD YOUR LIST…this is the KEY to building a business online.  The Healthy Holiday Program is your BIG opportunity to build your list and fill your 2018 programs.

  1.   Create entry as an optin offer.
  2.   Create the optin form in your mailing list.
  3.   Put it on a Squeeze Page either in your website or LeadPages
  4.   Advertise your Healthy Holidays Challenge on Facebook or your preferred social media platform.
  5.   Create a series of 6 follow-ups as auto responders in your mailing list.
  6.   Pretend that each person who is opted in for this just paid you a million dollars and treat them that way.
  7.   Get them on your newsletter list through the optin and start promoting the heck out of your January 1 program.

THIS is a perfect time and a perfect offering.  The group is irresistible and fun and builds relationships quickly.

HERE IS THE GOOD NEWS – if you are an Inner Circle Member, it is already yours!  If you are not an Inner Circle member, it is available for you to purchase for the next four weeks!


This is what it is.  Now I am going to tell you how to use it to build your business….although, the way it is designed, it will organically grow your business for you.  But….as long as we are intelligent internet marketers…lets go further…just one step will make a huge difference.

    What a wonderful package for health coaches, Cathy. All the extras, like the ad, email and video, take all the hard work away and make presenting this package an easy task.

      Thanks Tamuria, yes, it’s designed to be VERY easy and effective.

    What a fabulous approach, Cathy. By taking the focus off meal plans, weight loss and diets which have been done to death, the appeal is much more attractive and meaningful with accountability, introspection, and support.

      Thank you, Joyce. It also takes the shame and guilt away and gives everyone some really good feelings for their contributions.
