As the year comes to an end and I reflect on how many things have changed in my life in 2012 I feel so incredibly grateful and blessed. I ended 2011 unhappy, bitter and hopeless. I was working a job that didn't fulfill me with no hope for change, I was living in a body I didn't like or appreciate, and I was getting more and more depressed by the minute.
Then, I found IIN and today I am different person. In better shape, happier, more positive and helping other women changing their lives for the better, just like I did.
That's why I am so passionate about promoting the IIN education. I remember how miserable and depressed I used to be and this school changed my life. I am pretty darn sure there are other women out there who are just looking for an opportunity, and this may be it.
I have a $1000 scholarship to give away for anyone who enrolls between December 26th and 31st. I will be happy to chat with anyone interested in learning more and answer questions as well. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Yeah, I hate that anything besides the traditional nutrition degree is looked down upon. I would love to go through such a program but I don't want to settle for anything but the best. Anyone know about the eCornell program? Its not a full college program, so I don't know how much good that would do someone trying to break into the nutritionist field!?
Keri, I'm also an IIN Grad and loved it for what I was needing at that time of my life. The experience, connections and community were amazing. It wasn't a 4yr diploma or a graduate degree, and that isn't what I was going for. I knew going in, what I was going in for and I think that is important with any program. It really depends what you are trying to achieve and your end goal. I've also heard good things about the eCornell program. But neither of these will break you in to the "Nutritionist" field. You have to have specific degrees and credentials for that. But working as a coach does allow you to change the way people think and feel about how they are living, feeling and doing. There is no better feeling than watching the AHA moments take off around a room and then see those same people weeks later telling you all the progress they made since their last visit. I can't express that in words. :-) I'm not pushing either program, but just wanted to give my two cents on defining what it is YOU are looking for and than reaching out for it, where ever that may be. Best wishes on your search!
Hello ladies! Wow, I need to check my posts here more often :D
Hey Chia! Sorry it took me so long to reply. Since I found out about IIN I have only seen one negative review from a past student who was mad because he didn't graduate. He missed two of his tests ( and that's because IIN gives you a week or longer to take it), in which case I think he was responsible for his fail, not IIN.
It is definitely not a scam. I just quit my job to become a full time health coach and am loving it!
Email me if you have any more questions, I'd be glad to chat more with you : email@example.com
Hi! I'd be happy to answer questions by email or over the phone. The 1000s of IIN graduates are proof that the school is not a scam and it is life changing. The reason I am so passionate about telling everyone about it is because IIN changed my life and I will share my story with anybody who wants to hear it. Feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Girlmoving, I agree with Milena, and my post above explains my thoughts regarding IIN. The school isn't a scam, but there are a lot of people out there that went in to it with different expectations. I find even people that were in my own class had their disappointments because expectations were different. IIN really and truly is what you make of it. Where you want to take it, and the amount of time and effort you put in to being a part of the community. I have made life long friends and support systems that were worth every penny of the program. I left my corporate job and had the confidence to move forward. This journey in our lives is forever changing and we are not sure what tomorrow will bring, but finding the right fit for YOU is key. There are people out there that will find fault in any and every program and I'm sure that tumblr page isn't the only one you will find. I did the same research and found the same links before joining IIN. In fact it took me a while to take the plunge and had to trust my gut. But I contacted a graduate to get her real opinions, not the sales pitch, but really what IIN meant to her as she wasn't using it in her career and I wanted to gain an understanding. Her honest and thoughtful note to a complete stranger, is what made me want to go forward. And I have met 1000's of people like her virtually, and some in person since that day. I like to have a place in my brain for the negative nellies, and seek out the positive pollies :-)
