BEHIND THE SCENES WITH UPSWING ALUMNI
A PERSONAL NOTE FROM AMANDA
Hey healthy lady,
When I first left my job to become a Health Coach, I told myself I couldn’t afford extra business support until 'after' I was making the money in my business. I thought I could work it out alone. After six months lying on my sofa, staring at the ceiling, I realised I was no service to anyone. I needed to get clients, NOW.
I came across a mastermind program that was almost a $10k investment (can you imagine the conversations with my husband when I was making no income and wanted to take this leap?)
Turns out, that mastermind - and going pro - was the missing piece, and I started making my money back within months, quickly mastered what I believe is the biggest goal in a new coaching business - $5k+ months.
A year later, understanding the amazing power of a mastermind, I signed up for another high-level mastermind program. Being surrounded by like-minded women showed me what else was possible. I lifted to $10k per month (then onwards to $50k pm and beyond!).
After working with 100s of women in this format, I know, with absolute certainty, that this mastermind will deliver the ULTIMATE experience in the shortest amount of time - above and beyond what is possible with 1:1 coaching alone.
You don't need to work this out alone. You don't need to struggle like I did. You don't need to waste time ‘wishing' you knew what to do - I'll teach you all of it, and I'll be right by your side as you learn to implement your very own $5k+ pm Healthy Coaching Biz. I'm counting the days now to work with the new Health Coaches who are joining me on this next round.
If you are serious about growing your business in 2018, I hope you'll join us too. Click the “Apply Now” button to get started.
“The UPswing Mastermind™ has completely changed my life. I truly believe being an entrepreneur is a spiritual journey. Not only have I completely changed my thoughts; I have changed how I value myself, and how I value what I do. The power of mindset, mantra and manifestation have proven to be unbelievable! I truly had no idea, and quite frankly, I was skeptical to begin with.
Every single day I have put myself out there in front of my ideal clients using the techniques we are taught. I have journaled, I started working with an NLP practitioner to heal my own wounds, I started meditating and reciting mantras, and being comfortable in taking big scary leaps that make me want to vomit.
Since starting the UPswing Mastermind™, my business has gone from making about $1K per month in it’s BEST month to now having had 3 consecutive $5K+ months (and so far in this program having made approximately $19K!). January is looking like it will be even more! I sat and planned my 2018 and projected what it will look like at this pace — and I modestly projected $73,000K! I know I will grow more and more and more, because there is no way I am looking back now.
Today, for the first time in my life, I don't feel scared. I FEEL FREE. I feel like I deserve this, like I've worked hard. And all of my manifestations and mantras are coming to fruition. So thank you. Thank you for everything. Thank you for believing in me. Thank you for showing me that I was worthy. Thank you for offering this amazing program!”
– Stephanie Warner, Canada
When I first heard about UPswing Mastermind, I was pretty skeptical — because even though it covered everything I wanted to learn, I really wanted to work with Amanda 1:1 - my fear was that it would be a watered-down version of private coaching. Boy, was I wrong! I am an absolute convert.
Amanda’s Mastermind group has been the single most important key for my business success. Before starting the Mastermind, I was tired, confused and STRESSED. I was starting to question whether it was even possible making a living as a health coach. The weekly calls lift my vibration in a way that just would not be possible with 1:1 coaching. I feel like I get the highest coaching support of a key expert in my field (and I truly believe Amanda is the best out there). Watching Amanda coach other women helps me hone my own coaching skills, and has reaffirmed my belief in the true power of coaching.
As a result, in the first 10 weeks of being part of the Mastermind, I have made over $10,000, and signed a new client to my brand new program — charging 3 times more than I did before! And this is only the start!
– Amanda Pickering, UK
“In the first 12 weeks of the UPswing Mastermind I made $12k from my Health Coaching business. My investment has been paid back 2-3 x over already, but more importantly I am just so happy that I am making an impact in all of these people’s lives. I have 3 small children, so didn’t know if I’d have the time to make this work – but I am only working 1.5 days a week on my business and stoked with the results. I feel like I have jumped on the ‘fast-track'.”
— Jennie Gough, UK
"I needed to build my business from scratch and was looking for a step by step process to help it grow.
The Mastermind experience has been amazing. There has been a lot of mindset shifts which I’ve loved. It’s everything I expected it to be, working out what I want from my life and my business, digging into my target market and then finding where to find clients. I’ve literally followed the system. The steps are logical and that’s what makes it successful. The group has been phenomenal. They are all on their own journey and the support is about what we are going through as business owners, not so much about the business niche or the fact that I’m not a Health Coach.
In 3 months I’ve come to a place where my business is steady enough so I can let go of my other business. I can confidently let go so I that can focus 100% on the business that I love, the one I am being called to do."
— Karen Geddis, Australia
"[Before the Mastermind] I had no clients and had made no money. I wasn’t sure I could make it as a Health Coach. I wasn’t really all in, I had one toe in and the rest of me out.
A few months in and I now have 3 clients. One of the most important things I have got from the program is how much I need to work on myself. It’s ok to be a beginner and you don’t have to be perfect. I don’t have to prove anything to anyone. I’m taking the small steps Amanda has given us and it’s working. If it wasn’t for the MM, I think I would have gone back to the corporate world by now."
— Valerie Barrs Mainridge, USA
“[Before working with Amanda] I was scared to put myself out there. Now I’m getting consistency with new clients, which feels great. Last month was the first month I’ve made more money from health coaching and personal training than I do in my part-time job. That means financial freedom for me. I’ve had an opportunity to go to Italy for 3 weeks, and I don’t think I would have said yes if it wasn’t for this program. 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
"I can't express enough my gratitude towards Amanda and my UPswing sisters. UMM has given me the clarity and confidence to get my business up and running that I couldn't have ever 'worked out' on my own - and trust me I had tried! UPswing has enabled me to get super clear on my target market, what their needs are, how my program can help them and how to speak to them. I have also made huge gains in my understanding and mastering of my wealth consciousness and value I place in myself and my expertise.
Amanda's ability to intuitively give me the most perfect advice & reflections during our laser coaching sessions and 'get me out of my head' consistently surprised and impressed me. From UMM I have started signing my first clients and they're all paid upfront in full! I feel like I now have the secret formula, resources and scripts available to take my business to the next level. (By the way, Amanda's scripts are amazing!). "
— Lila Barbara Horrell , New Zealand
"The Upswing Mastermind has been invaluable to me I feel like I've learned so much. Before the MM I honestly had NO clue what I should be doing. Yes I had the pretty website...but beyond that, zero idea what I needed to do to actually get clients. The Mastermind was amazing for me because it provided a step-by-step plan to building a health coaching business and getting clients. I loved the workbooks and the trainings, and the programme is filled with content you will come back to again and again which is what I continue to do even though my 6 months is just now complete. Thank you so much Amanda!"
— Yolie Stephenson , UK
"Before the Mastermind, I felt like I didn’t know what I was doing. I had never run a business, and I was struggling with finding clients. A week after talking to Amanda about my money issues and clearing that fear, I found my first client quite randomly. She paid my full package upfront, and I was in shock at how easy it was once I was clear. Since then I’ve signed up another 3 clients (this was double my initial goal so that’s pretty cool). I am now 10 million times more confident that I will get clients -- and have realized that the confidence is key. I’ve also started building my list and have launched a month-long challenge that I am loving, as it finally feels like I’m nurturing and cultivating my tribe. I can’t wait to see what the next few months of the Mastermind will hold!”
— Erin Laishley, Australia
"Before I joined the Mastermind program I had no idea how to run an online holistic coaching business or even how to find clients. I definitely had the drive and determination to make it happen. I was looking for practical tools, support and encouragement and I found it in Amanda’s Mastermind program. I believe I built friendships for life with other Mastermind sisters.
Today I’m super clear on what it takes to run my own coaching business and how to find my ideal clients. Amanda’s skills as a coach are out of this world. I have overcome few personal challenges during the program and I feel super confident that my business is going to rock! My very first client signed up for the 3-month package and paid upfront! I’m in love with my business. I am more grateful than I can ever express in words! it literally changed my life. Thank you so much, Amanda!"
— Erika Morvay, Australia
“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 - we stay in communication each day and this makes a huge difference - through the good stuff and the challenging stuff. Thanks again for everything you do - it is seriously a gift.”
— June Melia, USA
“I'm so incredibly glad that I chose to sign up for Upswing Mastermind, it's changed everything! The content, structure and guest mentors have all been awesome, inspiring and so useful. I feel like I'm completely set up to make my business as lucrative as I want it to be going forward. The biggest thing was getting clear on my target, and from there learning the copy and the structure for making a package. I now have 15 new 3-month clients, and am regularly getting 2-4 Discovery Sessions per week, and am converting 90% of them to clients! It's so exciting! I've quit my part-time job and am now working full time as a coach. I absolutely love it, and I am planning to go and work in Bali for two months in August - just because I can! This experience has changed my life and given me the confidence to build my dream freedom business! I can honestly say that I don't think I ever would have got here without Upswing MM. Thank you Amanda!
— Andrea Featherstone, Australia
“[Before the Mastermind] I didn’t have a plan - other than becoming a health coach - and I didn’t know how to get clients. (I actually got my first client so that I could take part in the program.) Going from selling $30 sessions to $300 sessions is a huge difference in just a month but that’s what I’ve done... and now 6 weeks in I just sold a $4000 package. I’ve started to value myself more, and I feel completely confident that each month will be consistent.
I love the workbooks and how the program is laid out so that you have really have to dive deep and think about what you want. The community is also amazing, I really feel like everyone is a sister. It’s so high energy, it’s beautiful.”
— Shaina Harris, USA
“I cannot say enough about how the Upswing Mastermind changed my business. One of my biggest “wins” was committing to a target market, as that was the deepest darkest hole for me to climb out of (and something I’ve been struggling with since 2013 when I got my first client). Since I got clear on this, everything is 1000x easier and flowing so much better. I am consistently making good money each month now, and I feel totally at ease during discovery sessions. The Mastermind is a decision to play big and make your business a reality. And Amanda provides everything you need for that - knowledge, support, sisterhood. If you show up and do the work, you absolutely can create 5K months with the Upswing Mastermind.”
— Rachel Sizemore, USA
"If you are looking for someone to really show you everything you need to have in place to run a health coaching business and exactly how to get there Amanda is the one to show you how. The Upswing Mastermind gives you everything you need in a step by step plan.
Amanda is amazing at both teaching you the business stuff and also coaching you through the any struggles you have or mindset shifts you need to make to get you inspired and back on point fast. Not only does the Upswing Mastermind give you all that but it also gives you the most amazing bunch of women to go through the journey with, which has been totally priceless for me!"
— Tamsin Casey, Australia
"I was half way through my health coaching program when I joined the Mastermind. I’m still in full-time work and my goal is to get out of the corporate world. I was at the point of 'I need something more, I want to make this happen a lot faster'.
I’m just gaining so much more knowledge from doing it this way, I wouldn’t be where I am now if I hadn’t joined. My proudest moment so far was getting my first client and seeing how much I am helping him."
— Ame Tully, Australia
“The Mastermind has been AMAZING! It held me accountable and taught me things that I didn't even know would be important. I’ve gotten my website & Facebook page up and running, hired support and identified my Target Market. When I started the Mastermind I had none of this set up, and no idea how to go about doing it, so being able to accomplish this (while working full-time) has been huge.
The Mastermind also showed me a whole new level of 'how to be,' and what I can step into as a woman. I have learnt that the beliefs that I grew up with don't have to be the ones that I carry forward, I can live expansively, with freedom, and the desires that I have are not just whimsical but are meant to be lived out. When I started to realise this, the whole picture of what I had thought my future would look like changed. I now know that can be whoever I choose to be, and that is SO exciting!”
— Rachael Dowle, Australia
“It's incredible being part of a group of like minded, driven people all looking to create a life they dream of. Amanda is genuine, wants to help and has so many skills up her sleeve. So if it's not business but mindset she can still get you back on track. Without this Mastermind I would still be fumbling around. It has given me momentum and as a group we are supporting one another through EVERYTHING. It's very powerful and exciting…!”
— Jo Bendle, UK
"I loved, loved, loved the Upswing Mastermind! I’ve accomplished putting myself out there online confidently, learning the structures to do this efficiently and taking decisive action. It would have been so overwhelming for me to do all of this without the guidance of what to prioritise and when. I would definitely recommend the program for anyone lacking business strategy. I had no idea what my ‘brand' was but the Mastermind has helped it all come together. I’ve loved Amanda, I’ve total respect for her, her experience and her methods, I and adore my MM sisters!”
— Sally Dibden, France
"I trained as a nutritionist a long time ago and when my second child went to kindergarten this year, I wanted success and a business. But within 3 days I was lost and had no idea where to go!
I had resonated so much with what Amanda had said at the IIN conference in Sydney so I made a snap decision to join the Mastermind and I have to say that it was one of the most profound things I've ever done. It was actually in the process of choosing to do it, choosing to do it for ME that was most profound. It took a lot of belief to sign up, but it was awesome.
The Mastermind has given me far more than I expected. Slowly but surely I’m becoming clearer about what I want to do. It’s really helped me feel like I’m moving forward, which is priceless. What I’m proudest of so far is being able to stand tall when I talk about what I’m doing and what I can provide - the confidence in knowing what I can do and how I can help people. I really value that."
— Melissa Ort, Australia
"Upswing Mastermind has beyond a doubt given me ALL the tools I need to create a thriving health coaching business. Amanda has created an incredible business training that is beautifully integrated with an indescribable self-development course. She cares about her clients as human beings more than she cares about them as clients, and I am so lucky to have come across her program. Because of Upswing Mastermind I am a better health coach, a better business woman, and a better human being. I am now confident in my ability to deliver my gifts to the world."
— Jamie Raisleger, USA
"I was a Health Coach in the closet! I would avoid telling people what I did, and although I wanted to get out there I had a mindset block that people wouldn’t appreciate what I was doing. I was just working with people in my inner circle and I wasn’t charging my value.
I found the Mastermind very attractive - to put yourself out there, you need someone who’s been there and done that to help you. It was also important for me to interact with the other participants. I’m working with Amanda, but also all the MM sisters too, sharing the journey in a group collective. We all have our own ups and downs and we can inspire and help each other.
The mindset piece and the training on getting crystal clear on your target market, that’s been huge. It’s a different dynamic when you look at what your clients want. Putting myself out there and interacting with the community has also been a really big breakthrough. My proudest win has been seeing the results my clients are getting. I also get inspired by Amanda’s coaching as she’s giving us tools indirectly - teaching us how to coach."
— Radhika Mukhija Sud, USA
"I’ve been a massage therapist for 10 years and studied as a Health Coach but I just didn’t know where to start. I knew I needed some guidance and to get practical steps to go from zero to $5k.
The experience has been amazing. The steps I've followed have created interest, success and high visibility. Just doing the actual steps has created the success, even when I haven’t always believed in myself at the time. I really love the laser coaching, I look forward to it every week. It creates community and I really feel connected to Amanda as well. I still feel I get the 1:1 experience even though it’s a group setting. It’s great to show up every week to see other people’s progress and that’s very inspiring.
I think if you know that you want to do the Mastermind, just do it! If you feel in your gut that you want to do it, just go ahead as you won’t regret it. I didn’t!"
