I would like to introduce you to Patricia Cherry who took a Life Coaching Course at the age of 67, qualified the following year and now at age 70 has her own website, has published 3 books and has created an online course!
Patricia is not a weight or diet coach but rather focuses on helping others achieve a healthy body image as a whole and so encourages people to stop dieting and eat healthily instead.
More recently she has become passionate about Conscious Ageing – helping us all to look forward to getting older and what hopes and dreams we might accomplish. You can read more about it by visiting her blog: http://www.patriciacherrylifecoach.com.
On a personal note, I have known Patricia since April 2014 when she became one of my subscribers and I have found her a real source of inspiration – someone who will take on challenges and seek out opportunities to help others.
Here are some questions I asked her via email for our first ‘Showcase’ post!
When did you create or write your very first product/book?
I wrote an ebook in Autumn of 2012, called “Reflections of a Chronic Dieter”, but I have now taken that one off the market. This was a learning curve for me as now that I look at it three years on, I can see that there was a lot of room for improvement!
I am now re-writing it and have called it “The Magic 7lbs: The Politics of Dieting”. I am planning to sell it for a fiver on my own website.
What inspired you to start?
I bumped into a friend that I had not seen for about twelve years, and when she saw that I had kept my weight down, she suggested that I become a life coach and specialise in this field. Which is what I did.
So you didn’t just stumble upon your niche, it was already a passion of yours?
It has been my passion for years to help people with the miseries of the diet trap and also to age with the energy and vitality available to us all if we know how to harness it.
What is one of the most surprising things you have learned about product creation?
Until I came across you Kay, I had not thought that it was possible to create products in such an easy straight forward way.
What have you found most helpful?
Using the 10×10 matrix. I have built up all sorts of products from that as it was an excellent foundation. Brilliant.
Do you have a project you are working on at the moment? Please tell us about it!
2 or 3 at the same time!
Firstly, a free report on “Bingeing and Compulsive Eating”, which will be ready in the next few days. (This is ready and available – Kay)
Secondly, I am re-writing Reflections of a Chronic Dieter as I mentioned.
Thirdly, another book which I am re-writing.
And I’ve started a campaign to bring more awareness of Conscious Ageing to the UK!
Is there something you would like to offer our readers?
Yes. If anyone wants to improve their body image and they’re struggling with binge eating then my free report will really help them. Just contact me and I’ll send it.
I also have another free report “Ageing With Consciousness” for anyone who might be interested or intrigued by this. You can download this from my website.
