The first question we ask when it comes to wellness is What’s your wellness why? We ask this because the key to your success in your wellness journey is uncovering your key motivator. When you follow a path and whole-heartedly dive into finding the answer at the core, placing this why at the forefront of your journey makes a night and day difference in the consistency you’re able to apply and the meaningful impact you’re able to create.
My empowered journey truly began in 2009, when both of my parents landed in the hospital at the same time. Faced with immediate health and financial concerns as the decision-maker for our family, it was then that I became intentional about making changes that were safe, smart and effective for all of us. But, I realized I couldn’t do it alone. Thus our Empowering All Wellness community began. My Why? I want to educate and mentor others to create better health and wealth — when I see others succeed, it’s truly fulfilling for me! Don’t look back, only forward to creating your best life possible — who’s with me on this journey?
My empowered life began in 2014, when I truly took on my own personal journey of wellness — mind, body and spirit. To me, empowerment means making my own choices, facing my fears and overcoming them — getting out of the way of myself, essentially! I discovered it is so much easier to do this when surrounded by others who share the same passions — it just keeps getting better. My Why? I want to be a good role model for my kids when it comes to holistic wellness — I want to financially provide for them and actually be with them (not at a desk job) and experience life together while doing so!
When generally thinking about health, wellness and simply the betterment of myself/others, I ask myself the question “why not?” My inner-dialogue boldly states: I am provided with the strength, given the opportunities, and have the ability to touch another soul (especially my own) in a variety of ways. Every. Single. Day. Further personal reflections have me grappling with many questions including Who might I impact? Who might I be able to bless with this gift? Potentially no one. But perhaps, someone. My Why? I want to educate others on what is possible in their life and provide meaningful resources to achieve it, especially when it comes to wellness! I’m passionate about leaving a minimal carbon footprint and living life to the fullest extent by diversifying personal activities, sharing experiences with others.
I began my wellness journey in March of 2016. I am married to a Army Veteran and I have five wonderful children. I’m a caretaker at home and at my job where I work with Veterans at the Minnesota Veterans Home in Minneapolis. When a means to achieve a total concept of wellness was introduced to me, I embraced it because I knew I could help myself and others too! After taking a first step for the benefit of my family by removing the toxins from my home, I looked in the mirror and said, “You have to take care of yourself so you can take care of others.” As a full-time caregiver, I continue to improve my health and I love that I now have more energy to take others with me. My Why? I want to help others live the life they dream of — to be healthy, active, and have the freedom to pursue their dreams.
I have always had a passion for health and wellness, but it was multiplied exponentially in 2012. I was pregnant with my first child and was introduced to the Empowering All Community. I began to realize how everything not only impacted me, but also my little one. Through this community and research my family has created an even healthier lifestyle. I continue to learn everyday about what we encounter for toxins on a daily basis. This has fueled my passion to not only improve my life but to improve the lives of those around me. My Why? I want to empower others to take that next step to a healthier more active lifestyle, a safer home environment and to achieve financial freedom.
I am at a turning point in my life in which I have a desire to find out who I am, where I belong and what defines me. In my journey to become closer to Christ, to create some new friendships and focus on being healthier for myself and my kids, a friend of mine hinted about the Empowering All community. I could see a positive transformation taking place in her life and I wanted to know more. Now I do. I have reconnected with more friends, overcome fear of reaching out and detoxified my home from the inside out. I have my son on quality supplementation. And each and every day I am encouraged! My Why? I am enjoying this journey that God has placed before me and I feel blessed that I am surrounded with positive people. I’m on a mission to enhance the lives of others by simply educating and sharing!
I started a new chapter in my life when I became pregnant with our first child in 2011. After years of struggling with infertility and other health issues, God said it was time for new blessings and new adventures. My husband and I began reading about the effects of various toxins that are hiding in our everyday home and body products. We wanted to build a healthy family and lead by example right from the start. Through the ups and downs, learning experiences and struggles, I grew in my faith, my understanding of His grace, and my thankfulness for His mercy. My Why? I want to be able to serve the Lord, guide my family and care for others. By building up our family in daily, healthy ways, we find more joy, more energy, more strength to support each other and reach out to lift up others in their spiritual and wellness journeys too.
I have always had a passion for wellness ever since I can remember. As a collegiate athlete I gave my body the “GOOD” it deserved. As a mom I’ve continued those practices, but at some point I could no longer afford it. When I discovered an affordable way to meet our wellness goals in 2014, things changed. My oldest struggled with constipation since infancy, and I immediately noticed a difference when I started her on a fiber supplement. My race training spiked with Peak Performance – improving my workouts, recovery and energy level! My Why? To inspire others to create their own balance in life. Whether you are a single mom, married, kids or no kids; it is important that we take the time to balance our minds, bodies and life. Through the Empowering All Community and my openness to what each individual has to offer, I’ve taken risks. I have more capacity for self love, which directly makes me a better mom. It’s all about creating your balance.
I was always a very sick child. Lots of ear infections, bronchitis and pneumonia. I am allergic to house dust, which is everywhere, and cats, which were our pets when I was growing up. I used to obsess over cleaning everything, constantly. A few years ago, I started to use more natural, and healthier cleaning products. I think that has really helped me and my family, as we are not exposed to the chemicals that are in so many cleaning products. So many of the healthier products are so expensive and hard to keep buying, so it’s nice to have this affordable option. My Why? I want to be able to do the things for my kids (and eventually my grandkids) that I haven’t always been able to do. My kids are getting older, and I’d like to be able to share not only these products, but also a way that they could do this for themselves when they are ready. I love helping people, so this just fits!
