What’s a Health Coach?

Health Coaches represent a new layer in health care.  Wellness.

A health coach provides education, support and encouragement.

Health Coaching is a new field and more and more employment opportunities are opening up.  There are endless possibilities for health coaches and a self employed health coach has the more lucrative career.  Most health coaches are self-employed.  That is why our curriculum focuses heavily on entrepreneurial skills.

People are saying...

“The real value of creating a business plan is not in having the finished product in hand; rather, the value lies in the process of researching and thinking about your business in a systematic way. The act of planning helps you to think things through thoroughly, study and research if you are not sure of the facts, and look at your ideas critically. It takes time now, but avoids costly, perhaps disastrous, mistakes later.”—SBA

“Before BA+ I had a vague idea of my niche and how to reach them but working in a small group setting helped me to focus as never before. Before the program, I had the drive but not the direction. THCG is like a business GPS, helping me to determine how to get where I want to be!   I would and have recommended BA Plus. The best way to build a business is to follow someone who has already been where you are, someone who is running a successful business and genuinely cares whether we succeed. Cathy Sykora IS that person, and her capable staff make it work for me.   THCG’s programs and services have allowed me to focus on working on my business and building my coaching skills rather than spending time designing programs and building platforms. Since joining THCG I am more organized, less stressed, more focused and less anxious about the future health of my business.” — Nia Frieson

“I can’t imagine not being involved with THCG. I think there is power in numbers…I love the camaraderie that is here. Things are always being added…updated…more education etc. I’ve been connected here since the beginning and have yet to use all that is available. I think the Inner Circle and DSD are a must.”

“Accountability and having someone to talk to and share your ideas with- that is one of the great benefits of THCG. In our online world we often do not have anyone to bounce ideas off of or to share our highs and lows. BA Plus gives you that real human touch. Being able to connect with a coach and also the other people in your group can make the world of difference in you and your business.   Someone is in your court. They listen to you and keep you on track, reign in your scattered thoughts and put focus on your business. After all, you are only as good as you are when you are paying complete attention. Working with THCG changed my mindset from dabbling in my career to working at it properly with set obtainable goals. I still get confused (there is so much to learn) but with baby sets and my coach, I know I will get there.   THCG is an investment in you and your business. You meet once a week so you know you have work to complete before your next meeting. A business personal trainer. Just what every business needs.” Judi

“BA Plus has kept me motivated to get my business on track. The modules and bonus handouts have been very helpful with insight to plan out my business. The best thing about working with THCG is the weekly motivation and sharing of ideas among the coaches…knowing that I am not the only one going through certain situations. We all have the same concerns and problems.”

“I loved the BA Plus—you work with a real live person. The weekly calls keep you accountable. The in between reminders and checking in makes everything doable.”

“I love the professionalism in the done-for-you programs. Cathy has educated herself well in our best interest in the legal department. I would recommend BA Plus! If you want to actually DO the programs, you need this extra level of accountability. Karen has great ideas and is motivating in setting new goals each week.”
