How to sign client contracts electronically (using HelloSign)

How to sign clients using Hello Sign


I just finished up 2 days of a private intensive with a VIP client here in Bondi Beach. A key theme that we discussed throughout the 2 days, was the importance of having ‘masculine’ structures in place in your business to support the ‘feminine’ flow, creativity and freedom.

Systems and structures can sound so BORING or HARD for new health coaches and they are certainly not the sexy, freedom-based lifestyle ideas that we might have envisioned when starting a business.

But streamlined systems that work are actually really sexy!!

If you’ve been following along in our Action April ‘One Thing’ series, you will already be well on your way to having a system in place for booking potential clients in for a discovery session.


You already have: 

a system for marketing yourself and getting clients quickly

a system for scheduling those discovery sessions (and coaching sessions) with ease


And today’s ONE THING is to set up a system for signing client contracts online.

Once your potential client says ‘YES’ to working with you, streamlined systems are imperative to ensure the sales goes 100% through with professionalism and ease.

Put your feet up, sit back and watch this weeks ‘ONE THING’ video training below!



Imagine how ‘pro’ you are going to feel having this next ONE thing in place in your business this week.

I love hearing how you are getting on! Leave a comment below and share with me how you are going implementing the weekly ONE THING.

Or pop on over to my free Facebook group Healthy Wealthy Society to share your experience with like-minded new health coaches.

I’ll see you there

Amber had a dream: to live on a tropical island and transform people’s lives



Sometimes life takes you to places you couldn’t possibly plan for. The key is to TRUST that everything is working in your favour and that it is all going to be okay.

I want to tell you Amber’s story, because it speaks to that side of all of us, I think, who want to live and work in an exotic place; doing what we absolutely love, and changing lives.

When I last caught up with Amber, she looked radiant in a sundress and a frangipani flower in her hair. The backdrop I could see behind her looked serene, tranquil, and, well, like she was Skyping in from a tropical island... and that's because she was!



Amber spent 15 years in Corporate Finance before deciding to become a Health Coach. She had a burning desire to make a difference in people’s lives, and finance didn’t feel like the right fit for her.

Things fell into place when she decided to leave her job, which coincided with graduating from IIN. The Upswing Mastermind was beginning in the same month, and she felt ready to start a new journey. Something resonated with her and she felt called to get on board. She had no idea what was going to happen or where she was going to end up. All she knew was that she wanted to work in a location where she felt inspired and happy everyday while she helped others to a better health and mindset.

One of the big focuses of the Upswing Mastermind is cleaning up your blocks and shifting your money mindset. The more you clean yourself up, the more people are magnetised to work with you from that place. It becomes about who you show up as – the woman; the coach. It is a transformational experience, not just for your future clients, but for you to become the woman you have always wanted to be. It’s from there that you make the biggest impact on the world around you.

Amber was really drawn to the wealth consciousness aspect of coaching, and by using the structure and groundwork provided by the Mastermind, for example:  how to identify your target market and how to go out there and get clients, and how to hold discovery sessions, she was able to get into a flow of clients that unexpectedly saw what she was really good at all along – finance! (which came in the form of helping others to look at their own money stories and to make the changes needed in order to soar).

She was also able to take what she learned about balancing the masculine and feminine aspects of business and weave it into her new signature program.

Amber is from the United States. She knew she wanted to live a dream life while she pursued her passion to transform lives. Four months into the program, she moved across the world to Bali (a tropical island she had not even heard of until she joined the mastermind program) and was pleasantly surprised to realise that her dream of “Location, Independence and Transforming lives” had manifested.

If I had to talk to myself before I started the Mastermind,” says Amber, “I would say, ‘Let go and just have faith and trust and know that what’s to come is amazing. Believe in yourself and continue to move forward."

 “I’d say, ‘Be comfortable with being uncomfortable. Nothing is ever going to be perfect. I still have days when I don’t feel great about everything, but I know that I’m where I’m supposed to be and everything is going to be okay.’”

7 Tips to Get Your Business Mojo Back

7 tips to get your business mojo back


When building a business, tasks and work can pile up and make you feel overwhelmed. It can also be hard to say no to more work, and the cycle continues. 

All of a sudden you are feeling overwhelmed, stressed, tired, bored or lethargic - you have lost your spark and we don't want that!! Once you lose your mojo, it can be challenging to find the motivation to reclaim it and a downward cycle can creep in. 

Stories of stress and overwhelm tend to be sneaky little ego tricks to keep us playing small. "Who are you to be a great success, doing what you love?"

Well I argue "Who are you not to?"

The truth is you are meant to succeed, you are meant to serve others with your awesome business - so it's time to step out of struggle and into success.

I work with my private clients on stepping into 'being a $5k woman'. To be a $5k woman (or a million dollar woman...) you simply cannot allow yourself to linger into this negative state for too long.

Business Blues are part and parcel of being an entrepreneur - no avoiding that - but the measure of success is how quickly you can catch yourself and bounce back.

Making small life adjustments can make you once again feel more energy and enthusiasm for your business and start sending out high-mojo vibrations to attract those clients waiting to work with you!



Here are a few ways to get back on track:

1. Create a schedule

Keep a master schedule of all of your final deadlines by setting up a calendar. Seeing everything in one place can help you prioritize your time because you’ll know exactly what’s coming up, days and weeks in advance.

The trick to organising your time is to break your projects up into mini-goals that will be easier to achieve. Small, attainable goals will help you bust through tough projects and stay on track.

2. Stay aware

Setting up your schedule is only half the battle - the other half is actually using it. If you’re not in the habit of checking your calendar daily, you might need a little push in the right direction, so after you’ve set deadlines for yourself, also set some alerts. A pop-up on your computer or phone can be a quick reminder of what’s coming up!

3. Hang out with inspiration

Surround yourself with people who motivate, inspire and make you better. Energy is contagious, so spend time around those you admire and adopt their success habits as your own. Surround yourself with people who lift you up, see the best in you and can help dig your best efforts out of you.

You don’t need to be associating with Debbie-downers, lazy complainers, the gossips and trouble makers. These negative energy of these people have the power to deter you from your own goals and aspirations.  

4. Be organised

When you’re working on several projects at the same time, your inbox can quickly explode into an overwhelming mess of information. And while you can’t stop the flow of emails coming in, you can at least keep emails organised and separated.

Try adding folders and color-coding to your inbox to help you find important information when you need it. For example, create a separate folder for each specific assignment you’re working on, which will let you easily scan for conversations or files that you need.

To go a step further, you can even set up a rule in Outlook to send email from certain addresses or with certain phrases in the subject line to the specified folders you’ve created. Gmail does the same thing if you set up a filter. 

5. Create information shortcuts

Do you constantly receive emails asking similar questions? Create a Q&A response email or keep a Word doc on your desktop with answers for common issues. Having something you can easily cut and paste from will make answering routine email less time-consuming.

Doing the small stuff early and making it as streamlined as possible gives you more space to work on complex projects.

6. Think positive.

Fear and negativity are the thieves of your inner spark. Accept that fearful and negative thoughts are a part of life and an essential part of success. Redirect your thoughts to positive and live your business as if you have nothing to lose.  

7. Put compassion into action.

There is nothing that can make any of us feel better than to positively contribute to the lives of others. In whatever way you can, helping others is a great reminder of the good person you are.

When you have time to give, and you share it with others, your own happiness and fulfilment increase. It makes you feel good about who you are as a person, and seeing the impacts your giving has on the quality of the lives of others, reminds you that we are all human.
