In this week’s episode of Your Best Life, Karl interviews Elizabeth Rider, who has turned a personal passion for health and wellness into a rewarding career that helps others look and feel their best. Elizabeth is a nutrition and whole living expert who teaches women around the world how to become healthy, happy, and successful. She has built a successful health and wellness business from scratch and started with just a laptop and a phone. Her online programs include Clean Up Your Diet, Purpose to Profit, and the Wellness Business Bootcamp. Elizabeth is a TEDx speaker, regular contributor to the Huffington Post, and has been featured on Mind Body Green,, and Daily Love. During this episode, Karl and Elizabeth discuss the age of the entrepreneur, the health and wellness space, a day in the life of a health and wellness coach, and working virtually.

Main Questions Asked:

  • What does it take to participate in the health and wellness space?
  • Walk us through a day in your life as a health coach?
  • What have you learned that has surprised you the most about yourself in this journey that you’ve taken?
  • What would the 33-year-old Elizabeth tell the 18-year-old Elizabeth in order to make the journey a little easier?
  • What has been your greatest success story so far?

Key Lessons Learned:

The Age of the Entrepreneur

  • This is the ‘Connected Age.’
  • People have the illusion of the corporate safety net, but it no longer exists.
  • To be an online entrepreneur, you have to be self-motivated.
  • When you venture off and do your own thing, you can create multiple revenue streams.
  • If you are in a corporate job, find additional revenue centers you can create.

The Health and Wellness Space

  • You need credentials so you know what you are talking about.
  • Food is universal, so you don’t need a degree to share healthy recipes.
  • The barrier into the health and wellness world and doing health and wellness business is low.
  • You don’t need a degree or certification; you just have to ensure you aren’t crossing boundaries.
  • For the most part, you can help people by sharing your own journey and story.
  • The biggest success stories are people sharing their weight-loss stories and helping people feel better.
  • For people who want to take the extra step and become a health coach and get a certification, there is the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, amongst others.

A Day In the Life of a Health Coach

  • 6:45am: Wake up.
  • Drink a cup of hot water with lemon and an organic coffee.
  • Spend 30 minutes outdoors.
  • Create content: blog post, training, and new programs.
  • 12:00pm: Go to the gym and do weights or yoga.
  • 2:00-5:00pm: Work on inbox.
  • 5:00pm: Go offline.

Working Virtually

  • If Elizabeth doesn’t have meetings that day, she makes sure she has human interaction each day.
  • Using Skype and Facetime is another way to bring in personal interaction and actually see them.
  • Showing up to live events regardless of your industry is so important.

Just want to use this opportunity to tell the world about Dr.Astogo that help me get back my lover at the time of difficulties in our relationship, after he abandoned me for good 8 months with pains and tears in my heart. i am Grace from united states. my boyfriend before we broke up usually insult and see nothing good in anything i do, i felt as if i was cursed. my friends advice me to let go but i couldn't because of the love i have for him, which was so strong and could even do anything to satisfy him in a speed of light. After 2 days of my contact with DR.Astogo of my boyfriend came back with apologies and love that he had never shown to me before. Right now he doesn't insult me any more rather he tells me how pretty and wonderfully made i am each morning that goes by. one thing i love about DR.

You can contact him for help via: or call him +393510025283 he lives in Europe i just want you to contact him if you have such problem he is ready to help you no matter the country you Are.
