Pulling it all Together:
Working up your individual PLAN
Describing to you exactly what is provided in this Teacher training is very exciting for me, but because it’s an all live-real-time class, it’s not possible to provide every last detail. You see, I just love teaching live classes because it allows me to see what each person in the group needs. So it’s not possible for this course description to be totally comprehensive, although all topics mentioned will be covered. It’s just that there will be MORE…lots more….the HUMAN factor..how to take YOUR personality and background and help YOU to become a great teacher. :)
People have a tremendous desire for CHANGE and IMPROVEMENT IN THEIR HEALTH. You just need to know how to REACH THEM. The Modules in this course cover many different ASPECTS of teaching raw food classes; some of which will take you a bit of time, like obtaining your re-sale certificate (if you are in the US) or finding a suitable venue. With our class structure, you will have time to do everything you need to do in order to be ready to teach a successful raw food class- as soon as the class ends, or before!
For 3 months, we will meet every other week (approximately twice a month +- holidays). In the two weeks between each live interactive class, you will be implementing the steps laid out for you so that by the time the course ends, you will have:
- Completed your check list
- Created your own class plan or prepared for the Done for You plan
- Honed your content for your class
- Obtained any necessary licenses or permits
- Started your financials off right
- Found a great venue and chosen your class content and title
- Learned how to get people to attend your class
- Learned how to create a great flyer with a professional template
- Developed the confidence to teach your first (or best) raw food class
- Figured out where to go for support
Our work together will help guide you on what you’ll be saying/doing and preparing for in your class. By practicing within the safety of the group you will gain the confidence you need in the classes you’ll be teaching. This will be an interactive group. But if you can’t make it to the live seminars, you can post any questions you have in advance and listen to the recording of the class which will be available approximately 2 hours after the live class ends.
Be Ready to teach your first class
(or your best class) in 2015
At the end of our time together you will have everything you need to be able to go out and promote and fill your first class with confidence.

Are You Ready to teach your first class (or your best class) in 2015?
At the end of our time together you will have everything you need to be able to go out and promote and fill your first class with confidence.
What would it be worth to you to learn all of this
from someone who’s “been there, done that” and has
been incredibly successful in doing so?
If this sounds like exactly what you’ve been waiting for then you are invited to join me and begin your exciting, life-changing career, registration opens on October 1st 2014.
I think you are going to be pleasantly surprised by the investment, but before we get to that, ask yourself:
“What is it worth to me to avoid costly mistakes and to be able to pursue my passion to create a raw food career knowing right from Day One that I will be successful?”
This really is the question that you need to ask yourself, because taking this opportunity or not taking this opportunity could literally mean the difference between realizing your dream of becoming a successful raw teacher or not.
The truth is that year after year many well-intentioned and highly talented raw food teachers
throw in the towel because…..
…they didn’t figure out how to make a living fast enough
You don’t need me to tell you how much of a shame this is, and yet they all fell into the trap of thinking that it’s easier to learn on the job (the hard way), rather than to just secure the knowledge they need before they ever teach their first class and to instead get it right from the start.
Why struggle when you can simply join me LIVE for three months and learn exactly what you need to know ~directly from someone who knows exactly what it takes to be successful?
This is for you if you KNOW that you want to get started on a raw food career the right way, NOW.
After all, one of these days I do plan to retire, and I want to know that raw food is being taught right and well, once I’ve hung up my teaching hat. This five months of my time and expertise will enable you to fast-track your raw foods career and to earn back your investment as soon as your first or second class, depending on their size.
I really want to support you if you know this is your time.
This one time investment is only…
