Win One Month of Coaching: Celebrating 2 Years Of WellFitsYou.com (12th of April 2017)
It was 12th of April 2015, Easter day. I was at my parent’s house, on their couch in the living room, working my butt off to finish the 3rd article I wanted to have when I was about to hit PUBLISH on WellFitsYou.com. Everyone was enjoying the holiday, eating, watching TV, going for walks and chitchatting. I was going crazy, missing the whole holiday, beeing attached to my laptop like I was on life support.
That day I promised myself never to compromise missing family and holiday’s time for work.
And that day, my second “child” was born. I’ve been in the online business for 5 years, with my first “child” Estilo-Tendances.com, an online magazine focused on lifestyle, fashion, and beauty. But, with my coaching degree in my hand, it was time for a new baby and a new business. I was ready to be a coach and have something to show for it.
Two years have gone by so quickly and although I started with massive business debt, zero clients, and no structured plan in sight, I’ve accomplished quite a lot. It’s true what they say:
” It’s easier to overestimate what you can do in one year, but underestimate what you can do in three”
In my case, in two. Because I believe in authenticity and transparency and because nothing is always as it seems, I want to take you on my journey so far.
Buckle up, cause we have an adventurous ride to take.

- Got My First Coaching Client
After hosting my first live workshop, I was approached by one of the ladies. She wanted to lose weight badly. I was trained for it so after meeting her for a free session to find out more about her and her health journey, I made the sale. Easiest thing I’ve ever done.
Fast-forward to now, this amazing person not only changed her life completely: moved to another continent, raised her income by 5x and she is now in top 15% of the world, financially speaking; lost weight and is able to keep it off by eating all that she wants, is happy and fulfilled. She also became my best friend and I am very grateful to have her in my life.
- Doubled My Prices After 6 Months
With my firsts clients, I was not confident to ask the price that I really wanted. I was scared people will say “I cannot afford it” and I will have zero clients. But, as I noticed what amazing results my clients got, I knew it was time to up my game. I was feeling no energy and dreading to work for such a small price. Energetically, something was off. I did the scary thing and doubled my prices and guess what? Clients still came.
We were about to go on a business trip and cash was short, so I decided to organize a workshop and make money “overnight”. I did it before so I thought it would be easy. I invested a lot in venue, materials, advertising and business tech stuff so people could pay cash at the venue.
Guess what happened?
Besides my clients, NO ONE SHOWED UP. Yes yes, I made zero money that day. I was so embarrassed. I could not believe what just happened. I did everything right. “It is not fair!” – I kept telling myself. Plus, I felt guilty for spending money I did not have, on something that was useless in the end. That day, based on my ego, I promised myself that I will never host another workshop again in my life.
Update: Six months later I swallowed my pride and hosted another workshop, learned from my mistakes and it was a total success and got a new client from it.
- Got Featured On The Huffington Post
Everyone who is someone in the online world, dreams of being featured on the Huffington Post. It was such a big milestone for me that I did not even put it on my dream board. I thought I had to wait at least one more year, and write more content, and be featured on smaller websites, before even emailing Arianna Huffington.
But, because my husband did it by himself, cause he is an awesome business coach for any coach or entrepreneur that wants to change the world, I followed his teachings and emailed Arianna one night. My surprise was huge when SHE REPLIED.
Here are my articles on Huffington Post, they’re worth a read.
- Won a Scholarship To Write My Book
The dream of writing a book started many many years before, but I never acted on it because I thought I had nothing to say, plus I had no idea how to do it and I did not have time for it. I needed to make money not write books.
Well, one day I get this email where it says that if I find at least one person to enroll to IIN (my coaching school, cause I am an ambassador for them) in the next 3 days (over the weekend) I get the chance (there were 5 spots I think and it was a draw, whoever was lucky) to win a scholarship where they will teach me how to write and publish my book.
It was too good to be true. The deadline was tight and even if I would have met it, it was still a long shot. But I FELT this opportunity was for me and that it was MY TIME to write my book.
Believe it or not, but I found one person to enroll and two weeks later, I WAS ONE OF THE WINNERS. My friend calls me the manifesting queen for a reason.
- Increased My Prices With 50%
