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

Is the health coaching market already full?

Is the health coaching market already full


Over the last few days I have been talking to a number of awesome ladies who are looking to join the UPswing Mastermind

I have noticed one particular theme coming up that I wanted to talk about with our whole community. 

I’ve noticed that many of you are concerned that the Health Coaching market is already saturated, full, over-crowded.   

That it is ‘too late’ to get into business. That there is ‘no room for me’ 

These are perfect examples of the ‘Scarcity Mentality’ that I taught on my signature Masterclass ‘3 Keys to Unlock your $5k months as a Health Coach’ last week and honestly – they are just NOT TRUE. 

So here’s the thing – honestly, there is SO MUCH room for more health coaches in the world – but the old way of doing business is what needs to change. 

My mum has run her own business as a hairdresser for over 40 years. She works in a small block of shops, in a small suburb, in Auckland, New Zealand – and at any one time there are up to 5 other hairdressing salons in the SAME block of shops. 

And guess what – there is ALWAYS plenty of business. 

When someone decides to become a hairdresser after they leave school, they don’t hold back because other people have already done it! 

The only difference is that hairdressing is already a mainstream occupation and health coaching is still NEW. 

What does this mean for you? 

Actually – it means the exact opposite of what you think… 

It means YOU are actually the leader. 

Collectively, we are still the leaders in this important new profession and it is up to US to get our work out there so that people get the support on their health that they deserve to live happy and healthy lives.



Now there is one ‘bad’ piece of news. 

The truth is that the ‘old way’ of being a health coach is kinda saturated. 
It’s not longer enough to be ‘just a health coach’ – that novelty has indeed passed. 

There is no point copying Kris Carr’s website and expecting overnight success – it just won’t work. 

It’s time to get smart with our marketing and our message and treat our businesses like any other business in the world would do to have a true impact. 

Business for Health Coaches has grown up. 

And that’s the good news. It means as a profession we can now make a BIG impact (and income for ourselves along the way) 

For those joining UPswing Mastermind in 2016 we will be really working on ‘positioning’ your business so that there simply can not be any competition. 

That old story of ‘there’s no room for me’ will be banished for good. 

This is one of my personal superpowers that I’ve done for myself but until now haven’t taught anyone – it’s brand new for my clients this year. 

Millions of people are struggling with their health right now, and the only thing stopping them getting health coaching support is that the health coaches are being held back by limiting mindsets or old beliefs, lack of business training and lack of positioning. 

The old way of business is NOT the new way, and for those who are ready to fly in 2016 I would love to show you what truly works! 

I am running an encore of my ‘3 Keys to Unlock your $5k Months as a Health Coach’ Masterclass this week and will be breaking down these mindset blocks together on the call, before then walking you through my step-by-step plan for making $5k per month as a health coach. 

I would love to have you live on the call at the following times (Europe, US and Australia friendly). 

The call is happening on: 

Thu 28th Jan, 8am Sydney 
Wed 27th Jan, 1pm LA 
Wed 27th Jan, 4pm NY 
Wed 27th Jan, 9pm London




Click here to instantly register for this week's masterclass >> 

This will be the last chance to receive my personal $5k per month 'Healthy Business Plan' and complimentary training. 

And yes, there will be a replay for just 48 hours after if you really can’t make it live – you will just need to register to receive that. 

I love nothing more than sharing this information with those of you who are ready to take action on your dreams – can’t wait to 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.’”
