Meet Featured Member Susan Orehowsky

Business Name: Living Life Holistic

Business Description: Holistic Health Coaching

Susan’s Story: My story is two fold – my husband broke his neck C4 in 1986. Half the doctors thought he was paralyzed the others thought he was dead. He was neither because we serve an awesome God! Years later he began to have migraines which started to become debilitating. Our lives revolved around the migraines. After using traditional medicine, lots of side effects, we met a gentleman who used pharmaceutical grade supplements and had a protocol to follow using grapeseed extract, calcium, low glycemic food plan, exercise and lots of water. After four months we realized he was 99.9% migraine free! We have used this protocol for nearly 10 years now. Praise God!  

I went through what is called early onset menopause. It started in my 30s and for about 4 years. It was a life changing event. I went to my OB/GYN who promptly told me that I was too young and wanted to put me on birth control pills. What? Well, I went back to school for health and wellness. At first I received my certification in Christian Life Coaching, then Holistic Health and eventually in essential oils. I used a very natural solution, and yes the road was hard sometimes, but the side effects were zero. I chose natural medicine, eliminated the dairy, gluten, soy, corn, wheat, peanuts and sugar.  Easy to do and easy not to do…right! Today I have lost 27 of the 50 pounds that I  have gained. This is my main focus in business, women and menopause, all things hormonal.  It’s a new season and it’s a time to embrace and enjoy. There is life on the other side, I promise! [Read more...]

Meet Featured Members Julie and Katie Black

IMG_4218aGod knew what he was doing when he connected me with Julie Black and her daughter, Katie Black. They were preparing to launch the Contemporary Christian Women’s Academy and needed my help with marketing. I was honored to deliver. And what I received in return was a powerful dose of inspiration that only this amazing duo can provide! Since we met nearly a year ago, Julie and Katie have taken their business from “idea” to “inception” and are now in the midst of a whirlwind of speaking engagements and retreats. What I love most about them is the way they practice what they preach – pushing past their fears and conquering the self-limiting thoughts that prevent women from living the extraordinary lives God intends. In fact, Katie left a full time teaching position and moved her home to launch this business – and they are both beginning to reap what they sow.

Meet Featured Sister Carmen Wilkes

Carmen Kennedy WilkesSome of the most common questions I receive from mom entrepreneurs are related to legal issues — like establishing an LLC, filing for a trademark and how to secure a copyright. Most solo businesses don’t have the need or the budget for a full time legal staff. But there are certain things we need to set up properly with legal guidance – for our own protection. That’s why I love the concept of Legal Shield. Carmen Wilkes helps make legal protection affordable for everyone.

Carmen’s Story: 

I am divorced and had some issues my Family Law Attorney could not address and a friend told me about Legal Shield. It has helped me to know what I can do and understand my rights. My ex husband tends to be a bully and now I am empowered to not put up with the things he does. I also have a home based business rider with my membership that covers Legal and Identity Theft so I can ask any questions about my business also. I would not be without it, kind of like car insurance –  I don’t use it everyday and I would not want to be without it. I have not had a job in 20 years and wanted to start my own company helping seniors stay sharp and when I saw this business where I could support my family and help others access a system that most of us are priced out of. I knew this was where God wanted me. I can help level the playing field of our justice system. [Read more...]
