9 Influential Women Every Wellness Entrepreneur Should Follow

Since this was first published over 18 months ago (in September 2017), things have changed. Boy, have they changed! Not only in my own business but in many of the businesses of the women that I’ve been crushing on. So I thought I would update it!

As many of you know, my own journey within the health, nutrition & wellness industry has been a wildly winding one.

However, through it all, I simply could not have kept chugging along building my business without the motivation, support, and guidance of certain people – those who I would consider mentors and influencers in both my personal and business life.

Because I am so uplifted and empowered by the concept of “community over competition”, I reached out to many of these women, and was so thrilled to have them contribute to one mega round-up article for YOU — my deserving lemonade crew!

How I feel when I’m working with my own coaching clients is no different than when I’m working on growing my business…

That it’s imperative to surround myself with extraordinary women.

Those with an abundance of ambition, and who are dedicated to making a big impact in the lives and health of others. ~ Krista

Alicia Streger – FitPro Essentials with Alicia

Alicia Streger, FitPro Essentials | Women of Influence Every Wellness Entrepreneur Should Follow

I’m Alicia, and I’m a wife, daughter, sister, friend, coach, and mom (to one of the best pups in the world.)

Having FREEDOM is one of the things that’s most important to me.

After more than 9 years, I sold my fitness business to a professional soccer player, and now I’m able to focus on sharing my experiences and helping others to build a business that creates a positive impact, financial freedom as well as lifestyle freedom – like I was able to do in my own business.

I work exclusively with fitness pros, health coaches & wellness pros, not only because that was my field of study in college and my passion… but I truly believe we have one of the most IMPORTANT jobs in the world.

We’re out there every day trying to make people healthier, more confident, and more excited about living life.

In a nutshell, I help fitness and wellness pros save MASSIVE amounts of time by creating high-quality, engaging, valuable content and systems they can rebrand and use in their own business. This includes transformation challenges and programs, workshops, social media content, email newsletters to help build and nurture leads and clients, as well as the systems and processes to run the business on the inside.

My best piece of advice to newcomers (and veterans too!) would be to define your boundaries.

If you’re not careful, work can take over your life. We love what we do and we LOVE our clients, but we also need to make sure we take time for ourselves and our families…. and to never feel guilty about it.

Know when you want to stop work at the end of the day, what days you’re taking off for family night or date night, and never compromise. (And never feel guilty about that either!) 

Keep your workouts on your schedule like you would a call with your clients. Same with your nutrition. We all know we need to do these things, but it’s too easy to go down the rabbit hole… especially when you’re just getting started.

Define your boundaries - with yourself & your clients. If you're not careful, work can take over your life. Always go above and beyond for your clients, but just make sure it doesn't come with personal sacrifice. ~ @AliciaStreger Click To Tweet

Also, be sure to set the same kind of boundaries with your clients. Like when you will (and won’t) be available, what is in the scope of your work together, etc. That said, be sure to always go above and beyond for your clients, but just make sure it doesn’t come with personal sacrifice…. because that’s not good for anyone.

I LOVE my Facebook Group, Fitness Business Freedom Formula! It’s been a great way to engage, build relationships, and connect virtually with all of the AMAZING fitness and wellness professionals in our community!

I’m able to reach out to a large group of people in real-time, engage with my community, deliver valuable content, AND have fun with it all at the same time.

Kylie Malcolm Content & DesignKylie Malcolm | Fairy Godmother to Health & Wellness Entrepreneurs

Before I got into the wellness industry, I managed multi-million dollar deals and mentored sales teams for global IT Companies.

When I started in wellness, I became a Certified Health Coach and Children’s Nutrition Expert and found that along the way my peers were struggling with technology and getting business support.

Now I am the “Fairy Godmother to coaches”, helping them find their voice online with stunning website design and content that wins the hearts of their ideal clients.

When I first started out I wish someone would have just said to me to ignore the marketing noise and know that it doesn’t have it be perfect in order to get it done. Entrepreneurial business, especially coaching, is about trial and error. It’s about failing and getting back up again, learning after each step.

I felt like I had to be a certain way, or do certain things because every other coach was doing it. It made me feel like I wasn’t good enough.

If someone just said to me – your success path lies in listening to your own voice – I know I would have been more focused in my approach to building my business.

“Comparison blues” is a killer in business, and I still occasionally find myself deep in comparison mode, but I’m quick to pull myself out of it knowing that my journey is my own.

When it comes to connecting with my community I can’t ignore my Facebook group.

To be honest, I hate email marketing. It makes me feel nervous thinking about it even though I know it’s essential for my business, but I love the personal interaction and hands-on approach to being a part of my community and empowering others on a daily basis.

Offering support and guidance each day means that coaches can feel empowered without feeling like they need to cough up money each time they need the help.

I share insights into building a coaching business online, have free tech support days and best of all, give away free content when I can. Without a doubt, it’s my favourite place to hang out. Knowing that I’ve helped just one person each day, lifts my business in ways I can’t describe.

With that said, I have just re-launched Content Club for Coaches, and that is fast becoming my favourite way to connect.

I’m able to lift coaches in a way that not only saves them time but offers up highly engaging content to build their business without a hefty price tag. ~ Kylie Malcolm Click To Tweet

I want to change the game when it comes to building a coaching business, and this is my way of doing it.

Kathleen LeGrys – Health Coach Solutions

Kathleen LeGrys | Health Coach Solutions

I started out as a brand new health coach that had to figure out the best way to structure my business and help my clients.

Through trial, error, and then success, I now get to share what I’ve learned, so other wellness professionals can sidestep mistakes and fast-track their growth.

My done-for-you tools and resources help health coaches feel more confident and empowered to help their clients reach their goals, while they streamline their business.

There are so many things I wish I knew when I first started!

I’d have to say one of the most important ones would be to narrow your focus, so you can be more consistent.

It’s way too easy to get distracted and chase the latest, greatest sparkly object that comes along, but the truth is…

The best strategy for growing your business is a good plan, patience + consistency. If you jump around too much from thing to thing, you’ll never know what’s going to gain traction if you don’t give it enough time. ~ @KathleenLeGrys Click To Tweet

I have to frequently remind myself to put my blinders on, so I don’t go down another rabbit hole. This is easier to do when you have a plan in place, and you stay focused and committed to the plan.

My favorite way to engage with my tribe is through email and my Facebook group. I usually use my blog post topic as the topic of the week to stay in touch with my email subscribers too. 

I share tips and strategies each week that are easy to implement, so coaches feel like they can make progress, and achieve small wins along the way.  It’s the best feeling to hear from people after they read your email or your blog to let you know how much they appreciate it. 

I have a fantastic Facebook group, where fellow health and wellness professionals can come together to support and encourage one another, and it’s something I love facilitating and being a part of. The synergy and camaraderie of the group is something very special, and I know my tribe appreciates it. 

My most recent favorite way to engage with my audience is actually through a brand new podcast that launched in July 2017.

The Wellness Business Podcast is hosted by Karen Pattock and myself, and we share weekly business-building tips, plus include action steps to take, so listeners know what to implement. 

It’s something we’re excited to do, and the positive feedback keeps us motivated to keep delivering more great topics.

Karen Pattock – Make a difference. Make a living.

Karen Pattock | Make a living. Make a difference.

When I graduated from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN) and started my Health Coaching business just five short years ago things were very different then they are now.

Facebook for business, the way we know it now, was just really getting rolling. Instagram and Snapchat weren’t even in existence yet. And frankly, I had no idea how to use the internet to promote my business.

What I did know for sure though, was that Facebook was going to be a game-changer for small business owners like me and I needed to figure out how to capitalize that platform as much as possible.

I also knew I needed to do a bit of internal work before I could move forward on Facebook. I needed to get comfortable in my own skin because I was 100% the face of my brand.

It didn’t happen overnight, but gradually over time, my confidence level grew. I became more comfortable with my image being promoted everywhere in connection with my business. I realized that my ideal clients wanted to hear from me and more importantly – work with me.

The one thing that has stayed the same is that everything keeps changing in the online business world. ~ @KarenPattock Click To Tweet

My favorite way to connect with my tribe is with Facebook Livestream. It’s real, it’s timely, and allows me the chance to build a relationship with my followers that I could never do with email.

If you’re just starting a wellness business and are looking for one strategy to get started, I highly recommend Facebook and, more specifically Facebook Livestream.

The benefits of Facebook Livestream are:

  • Real-time connection with your audience
  • More organic reach, (free), on Facebook than any other type of post
  • Replays of your video live on forever and continue to get traction
  • Facebook collects data on viewers and allows you to create a custom audience of just the people that have watched your video
  • You can retarget those people with other offers and valuable information with paid advertising
  • Paid advertising costs for retargeted custom audiences are substantially less than other types of ads

The key factor to this strategy working for you is finding a way to get comfortable in your own skin, get in front of the camera, and share your valuable information on a consistent basis.

Lori Kennedy – Founder, The Wellness Business Hub

Lori Kennedy | The Wellness Business Hub

I’m first and foremost a mom. I’m also the founder of The Wellness Business Hub, an online platform that delivers personal development and professional training for health practitioners all around the world. My real-world approach to business is built into my online courses and live events.

My signatures… the ‘Wellness Business Academy’ and the ‘Wellness Business Summit’ are founded on growing a powerful community of leaders in health transformation who work with Team LK to achieve our “1 million mission”.

Here’s my one piece of advice to newcomers to the health coaching and online wellness business space:

Outsource before you can quite afford it.

Early on in my own business, I hired a business coach to look at things from an outside perspective and point out a few ways to take everything to the next level. It quickly became clear that if I wanted greater rewards, I’d need to take bigger risks.

Most of those came in the form of hiring help, namely a virtual assistant, a video editor, and my own publicist.

At the time, these looked to me like expenses I couldn’t easily afford, but I took a chance anyway and it soon paid off.

When I’m connecting with my tribe, my people…

Email is still #1 when it comes to your ability to connect and sell in a way that social media just can’t do. ~ @LoriKennedyInc Click To Tweet

Facebook Live is a great way to connect on social media for interviews, teaching, and doing live Q + A’s, plus you can transcribe your FB Live and turn it into a blog post and a week or two of social media posts as well – I’m a big fan of repurposing and using content more than once in creative ways!

LORI KENNEDY is a Registered Holistic Nutritionist, Strategic Business Coach & Founder of the Wellness Business Hub.

She was inspired to create The WBH because, after years of learning, implementing and running successful offline and online businesses, Lori recognized that there was a massive gaping hole that health & wellness practitioners (health coaches, energy healers & fit pro’s) fell into immediately after graduating from whatever program they had just completed.

It is the intention of the WBH to provide a place for you to feel comfortable, supported and mentored on a daily basis so you can build a thriving career in wellness – all on your own terms.

The Business of Becoming Podcast

Amy Lippmann – Marketing for Health Coaches

Amy Lippmann Marketing for Health Coaches

I live in Carrboro, NC with my husband and 2 girls. I’m a health nut and former health coach.

My company, Marketing For Health Coaches, helps newer health coaches launch their businesses and get clients by using our done-for-you health coaching programs, done-for-you content, and business building training.

When I was a health coach, I was so concerned about doing everything I was supposed to be doing. I wanted to ensure that my business was successful, so I did everything I could to get clients.

I thought “if I do x, y, and z”, that will guarantee my success.

There were several problems with this though:

1.     I was working very hard and spreading myself too thin.

2.     I didn’t get really skilled at any one thing.

3.     I was spending time and energy on strategies that weren’t effective for me, nor were they a good fit for my personality.

(Example: going to big networking groups was painful for me!)

But because I was taking action and checking things off my to-do list, I thought I was doing the “right” thing.

What I wish I had known when I was starting out is that I didn’t have to do it ALL and that I would be much more successful (and happier) by focusing on ONE or TWO strategies that were a good fit for me. ~ @LippmannAmy Click To Tweet

By doing this, I could have dove deep to learn how to implement those strategies more masterfully – an example of this would be focusing on giving one amazing client-getting talk.

If I had focused on this particular strategy, I could have perfected one talk topic that I loved speaking on and that attracted my ideal clients – rather than putting together 5 different talks!

I could have become more skilled at booking speaking gigs at groups and venues that were a terrific fit for me, rather than speaking everywhere I could. And, I could have refined my ability to motivate people to sign-up for initial consultations after my talks.

Marketing your business takes work, but it can be fun, especially when you’re focused – rather than feeling overwhelmed by countless strategies and experiencing great results from your efforts.

Right now my favorite mode of connection with my tribe is email. I’ve identified that writing is a strength of mine. I enjoy it and I find I’m able to express myself well when I write.

Lately, I’ve found that more and more people prefer to have content right in their inbox vs. having to click through from an email to my blog.

Convenience is huge, so I’ve been putting my blog content right in the email, while also giving them the option to click through to the blog so they can choose what works best for them.

AMY LIPPMANN is a former health coach and self-proclaimed health nut.

After 5 years as a health coach, Amy merged her marketing roots with her passion for wellness by launching her company, Marketing for Health Coaches, where she’s helped thousands of health coaches and nutritionists get clients, create high-converting websites, successfully launch online programs, and grow their lists.

Amanda Cook – The WellpreneurAmanda Cook | Wellpreneur | 9 Influential Women Every Wellness Entrepreneur Should Follow

I teach wellness entrepreneurs around the world to grow their business through digital marketing in my Wellpreneur Marketing Bootcamp, and I live in London and Hong Kong.

I’m also the host of the wellpreneur podcast as well as the author of wellpreneur, which teaches how to bring more of the right people to your website and turn them into paying clients.

Here’s what I wish I knew when I started out:

Don’t spend so much time thinking and planning the ‘perfect’ business when you’re just starting. Start working with clients right away.

It doesn’t matter how much they pay, as long as they pay something – you just need to start working with people. Taking that kind of action with real clients is what brings clarity.

I love connecting with my tribe through the weekly Wellpreneur Podcast that I’ve been doing for over 5 years – and that’s the main way I created a tribe and communicate with them

Then we’ve also created a community group on Facebook for podcast listeners. So, those two are my favorite ways to interact – first the podcast, then to engage and discuss each episode in our FB group.

AMANDA COOK is an author, podcaster, ancestral herbalist and digital storyteller who helps women turn meaningful work into personal freedom.

She hosts The Wellpreneur Podcast which has over 20,000 downloads per month. She’s also the author of the bestselling book Wellpreneur, and its take-action companion, The Wellpreneur Planner.

Amanda has appeared on Huffington Post UK, BBC Radio 4, The Sunday Telegraph, Natural Health UK Magazine, and MindBodyGreen. She lives in London where you’ll find her foraging along the Thames.

Lisa Simone Richards – Publicity Coach, LisaSimoneRichards.comLisa Simone Richards | Publicity Coach | Influential Women Every Wellness Entrepreneur Should Follow

I work with clients to build awareness, buzz, and credibility for their businesses by getting featured all over the media – from websites to podcasts, all the way up to magazines and TV, in order to get in front of their ideal client and become the go-to expert in their industries.

Having worked in the PR industry for 10 years, in agencies, in-house, and with startup brands, I was inspired to launch my boutique agency and website — where I teach business owners how to do their own PR.

It broke my heart to see so many business owners who are passionate about making a positive difference in people’s health have to close up shop because nobody knew who they were.

This is a way that I can help these entrepreneurs get seen, get clients, and get paid.

The best piece of advice I can offer to newcomers in the health & fitness coaching/health practitioner space — is to precisely position yourself.

What I mean by that is that there are SO many health coaches out there, that it’s imperative to:

  • identify your niche
  • know what your unique selling proposition is
  • what the transformation you offer is so that your ideal client is clear on why YOU are the person to work with – above anyone else in your space

Specify your offer of transformation so your ideal client knows why YOU are who they need to work with. ~ Lisa Simone Richards @ellerich Click To Tweet

It sounds scary to be so specific and like you could be cutting off a lot of potential clients, but… through specific niche-ing, you’ll actually be way more attractive to your ideal client!

I love to connect with my tribe in my private Facebook group. It’s so fun to share a bit of my personal life on live videos, to host exclusive interviews, and actually engage with people through conversation in an intimate group.

Something I’ve created to help fitness business owners get in front of their ideal client while also building their own credibility is my (free!) five-day Pitch to Podcast Challenge.

In less than 10 minutes a day, I share how to find the right podcasts that your ideal client is listening to, how to find and connect with the host, and then successfully ‘pitch’ yourself for an interview.

Any business owner who wants to stand out from the crowd and be more attractive to clients should definitely check it out, especially since it will be turning into a paid product soon.

Rachel Feldman – Health Coach turned Content Creator & Biz Mentor @

Rachel Feldman | 9 Influential Women Every Wellness Entrepreneur Should Follow | Making LemonadeI live in Florida with my rad family: my husband Scott, and my kids, Max and Sammy plus my awesome assistant, Esther, my super pug.

I am an autoimmune warrior, who left my multi 6-figure commercial real estate gig to pursue my dream of being a health coach.

I struggled in year 1 only making 13k and then it all changed when I hired my 2nd coach, who kicked my behind and said,

“Rachel, you must nail down your niche, your message, and create multiple offers for different buyer avatars.”

I took her advice and created groups online and offline, do-it-yourself programs, low-cost offers, and opt-in freebies to test my market. She changed the game for me. I hit 6 figures by year 3 and became known as the gut and detox expert.

Today, I help people like you, health and wellness professionals, who were like me: starved for time. We create done-for-you programs, done-for-you business trainings, content, blogs, workshops, newsletter, and more because we know you don’t have time. You need to spend this time building authority!

When I was a health coach, I was struggling with my autoimmune, had little kids, and was scared. I wanted to make that promised $150 an hour. EEEK! I almost quit 20,000 million times over but I didn’t.

Today I help coaches to get back to the basics.

Here are my top 4 tips:

  1. Know your ideal client
  2. Nail down your niche
  3. Get clear on your clients’ problems
  4. Connect the dots for your potential client DAILY, because so many people are feeling overwhelmed and lost in information overload

What I wish I had known when I was starting out is that I needed to believe in what I was offering more than the fricken platform I was delivering the material! ~ @rachelafeldman Click To Tweet

By doing this, you can focus MORE on relationship building, connecting, and getting to know the problems your ideal clients struggle with. What if you took 3 days to speak to 15 potential clients instead of spending $500-$1000 on Facebook ads to test your market?

If you are a new coach, ask your friends what problems they experience and craft your offers around the problem.

If you are a seasoned coach, spend time optimizing the funnel that ACTUALLY works.

I wish I would have spent less time doubting myself. I am a recovering perfectionist. I have worked hard to stay in my own lane. I was lucky because when I began coaching we did not have as many options.

Options such as:

  1. Email marketing
  2. Platforms
  3. Shopping carts
  4. Marketing platforms

We were just told to “show up”. But, as for connecting with people, this is where I see coaches getting stuck. We don’t know WHERE our people are, so my suggestion is this: TEST! Test the different platforms and look at your analytics.

I love Facebook and have a free group. In the beginning, I used my personal page to build authority and I did “selling” from my business page. However, I am really digging Instagram these days.

Here’s the deal… give yourself permission to create your own signature path. Done for you anything gives you a template, but it is your magic, your soul, your journey, and your belief in what you do that builds TRUST.

RACHEL FELDMAN, Wellness Momma, Health Coach & Business Niche Coach

After only earning 13K her first year in health coaching, she knew she needed to learn how to create a sustainable business built with a solid sales funnel. Rachel went from making 13K to 72K by year 2.5 and then broke six figures in her third year of business. She’s also contributed to such publications as Forbes, Huffington Post & Thrive Journal.

Today, Rachel teaches the same system she built her successful health coaching practice to other health and wellness professionals. She’s helped more than 8,000 health coaches rock their biz to the next level making the money they deserve.

She works with coaches in her private practice and is the creator of the Done-For-You Programs for Health Coaches. She created these programs for coaches so they could spend less time creating and more time marketing their business and brand. She knows the importance of saving time being a Mom and a true CEO!

Jill Coleman – Online Fitness Business Coach & Blogger @ JillFit

Jill Coleman | Influential Women Every Wellness Entrepreneur Should FollowHalf of my business is teaching women how to create a healthy lifestyle that is stress- and shame-free, through short, efficient workouts and #moderation365 eating.

The other half is working with female fitness and health professionals who want to learn how to build their online platform to create digital products and programs that make money while they sleep.

I am an internet marketing geek and I love personal branding.

The biggest mistake I see new fitness professionals and online entrepreneurs making is mismanagement of expectations.

Just because you work for yourself and are building a business online doesn’t mean you don’t have to treat it like a full-time job, even at the beginning when you are not making a full-time salary.

It’s one of the most fulfilling spaces to be in—getting to help thousands of people all over the world through your online systems—but it’s not without effort.

It takes time, patience, practice, and consistently showing up and implementing, even when you are busy or not feeling like it.

And one of the hardest things is that just because you know fitness [or nutrition and health] doesn’t mean you’ll automatically know business! It’s a skill to learn, like learning a new language and it takes time and patience.

I see many online fitness pros give up way too quickly because they get frustrated with the lack of results in the specific time period they assumed it would happen in.

We are in the “trust business”, and the nature of trust is that it takes time to earn. You have to be willing to take the long view, be resilient, and above all… you have to be obsessed with your message – otherwise, you’ll give up quickly.

We are in the TRUST BUSINESS and the nature of trust is that it takes time to earn. ~ Jill Coleman @JillFit Click To Tweet

There are 2 ways I like to connect with my tribe – first off, I love Instagram for the connection. The visual quality of the medium allows for us to connect with the energy and animation of a person, and live Instagram Stories have brought out the most transparent marketing we have ever seen!

And the way I see it, the possibilities for connection with each other and the depth of connection is so much greater because of this “pulling back of the curtain”. We can *literally* be in each other’s living rooms together.

The second way I like to connect… I’m also old school and I love live trainings! I love teaching and I am always sharing the things I’m learning, and normally hold 2-3 live webinars each week for various groups I coach.
