What I learnt from Oprah

What i learnt from Oprah


I took Natasha my assistant to Oprah Winfrey here in Sydney in December.

WOW – now Oprah is one BIG inspiration!!

What an honour to see her in person.

Watching Oprah share her life story, she reminded me of the truth that greatness happens to those who are the most unlikely candidates.

Like you and me, Oprah was not born into wealth or fame.

Instead, she learnt from an early age to listen to the whispers from the Universe. The little messages or signs that are guiding us all every single day – guiding us to the path we are born to follow.


Oprah shared one thing she knows for sure:

You are here for a reason. You are here, on earth, with a PURPOSE.   

And the Universe sends you signs – all the time!   

This has been my experience over the last 10 years in my life also…  

At first I didn’t trust the signs, the whispers. And yet slowly but surely, I not only started to notice them, but started to follow them.  

I started to TRUST, and wow did life unfold beyond what I could have ever imagined.  

If you have been following along with these emails, wondering if UPswing Mastermind is right for you, then I invite you to listen to that whisper.  

You are here for a purpose, and only YOU can choose to follow the gentle ‘nudges’ that are guiding you all the time.  

We begin in just a few days, so NOW is the time to take action.  

There is absolutely no obligation when you apply.


I’ve been hearing from many of you that you would LOVE to join the UPswing Mastermind but do not have the money for the investment.

I have been thinking about this and truly want to support as many of you as I can who KNOW that this work is their purpose.

And so for just 48 hours ONLY I have opened a low-cost, 12-month Special Payment Plan.

You can now join UPswing Mastermind from just $565!

I’ve never offered this before, and it is strictly for 48 hours only.

So if this happens to be the sign you have been waiting for – jump on it right away – I only have limited spots left to discuss the opportunity!

So if something is calling to you about this program, I highly encourage you to trust your intuition and fill out an application, and we’ll jump on a call in the next couple of days to discover if the program is a fit for you.  

Learn more & apply now (limited spots left!)>>  

I look forward to supporting you to create a life and biz beyond your wildest dreams.    

Here’s what a few of our past participants have to say about the UPswing Mastermind...   

“[Before working with Amanda] I was scared to put myself out there. Now I’m getting consistency with new clients, which feels great. In the 3 months I have been in the Mastermind I have doubled my revenue compared to the 3 months prior. And I have to say I'm thrilled!”

— Emma Polette, Australia

“Within weeks of joining the mastermind, I went from giving away my services for free to enrolling 20 paying clients in my online detox program. Within a month I signed my first one-on-one client.   

Paying clients aside, the biggest win for me is in the belief I now have in myself as a coach. I have officially left my previous career, knowing that I can earn consistent income as a coach. I don’t think I would have done any of that without this program!”

— Cara Rice, Canada

“I want to tell you that your Mastermind program is seriously awesome – the value is fantastic. I'm getting more out of this program than I did last year working 1:1 with a business coach – at a fraction of the cost. The community is insanely supportive and I've really connected with the other Mastermind members. Thanks again for everything you do – it is seriously a gift.”

— June Melia, USA

Let’s create your 2016 intentions

Lets create your 2016 intentions


How was your big breathe out? What’s bubbled up for you over the past few days? 

With 2015 gently released, it’s time to consider all parts of your life and create your intentions for 2016. 

Go grab your journal. You’ll also need a separate piece of paper. 

1. Under each of the following categories, add 3 goals you’d like to achieve – bonus points if the goals are aligned with how you’d like to FEEL. 

A.      Love and relationships 
B.      Career 
C.      Spiritual 
D.      Body

2. Choose just 1 word for each of category that sums up your heart’s deepest desire in that area of life. 

3. Now choose the ONE word out of all of them that sums it all up and write this on your piece of paper. 

4. Put this piece of paper somewhere special, next to some crystals perhaps, and light a tea light candle to place on top. 

5. ASK the universe for guidance. To see this through to its highest possibility. And TRUST it is being taken care of from here. 

Spend the next few days meditating on this desired outcome, feeling or goal – integrating into your body and soul that it is truly being taken care of.

I will be back in a few days to share with you how to start to set your strategic, actionable steps to reach your 2016 goals.

Speaking of goals: Did you see my email inviting you to watch my ‘Behind the Scenes of UPswing Mastermind’ vids? There are some amazing stories in there from women who joined the UPswing Mastermind as part of their goal achieving for 2015.



In my Behind The Scenes of UPswing Mastermind video series I chat to Emma Polette who’s big goal for 2015 was to become a Health Coach, but her boss told her that she would never make consistent money from doing so, and really tried to ‘help’ her by not making a career mistake.

I’m dying to share what unfolded for Emma once she surrounded herself with people who are also following their dreams – but it’s such a better story told by her!

Pop over and watch our interview and see the truth behind the journey of building a Health Coaching business while still in your ‘real’ job.

P.S.  There are a number of interviews on this page all discussing different angles of the ups and downs of becoming a Health Coach. Check them out here>>  


Should you quit your 'real' job?

Should you quit your real job


I witness many new coaches waiting for someone to hand them a permission slip to go for their dreams and leave their 'real job'.
When I first wanted to start a Health Coaching business I went through the following waves:

  • I ‘think’ maybe I could do this…

  • My colleagues think I’m crazy…

  • I’ve seen others making money from coaching….

  • But others are telling me it’s not possible….

  • And maybe it’s not…

  • But I REALLY want to do this…

  • Could I really leave my job?

  • Yes…no…yes…no…

  • Arrgggggg

Yes.. No... I will... I won't....
Can you relate?
I hear you healthy lady – it’s SUPER scary to take that leap from your safe and secure job and set up shop as a health coach.
Call me crazy (I do in hindsight) but I leapt despite these fears!

And honestly, having done that myself with no financial backup, I DO NOT necessarily recommend that approach.

I left my job, declared myself a Health Coach, then stopped abruptly in my tracks when I realized I had NO IDEA how to actually get clients.
I sidetracked myself for months wondering ‘how do I run a Health Coaching business anyway?’
While everyone has a different personal circumstance (so don’t let me stop you if you are ready to leap), in general, if you are in a job already I tend to suggest building your Health Coaching business on the side until you have the inner certainty that consistent income from your new business WILL keep comingand you can leap from your job with glee rather than fear.
In today’s Behind The Scenes of UPswing Mastermind interview I chat to Emma Polette who knew she wanted to become a Health Coach but her boss told her that she would never make consistent money from doing so and really tried to ‘help’ her by not making a career mistake.
Her boss is no doubt a great man, but didn’t necessarily understand Emma’s internal dream and she shares with me the journey to balancing her dream career with her ‘real job’.


I’m dying to share what unfolded for her once she surrounded herself with people who are also following their dreams – but it’s such a better story told by her!

Pop over and watch our interview – this is one you DO NOT want to miss!

And will really help you see the truth behind the journey of building a Health Coaching business while still in your ‘real’ job.
