Anthony Pack, helping Brilliant Business Owners Skyrocket Their Energy
Here is my interview with Anthony:
"When I was going to high-school, I always had my vision set on trying to help people. I was in our school's medical club which influenced my pursuit to help others through the aspect of health and wellness. My journey in college was not the best, going through a variety of different biology and chemistry classes that ruled out one avenue of being a doctor. Being a physician was something that I was inspired to be because of my high school medical club. I still wanted to help people in a way that can give them purpose, direction, and new meaning to their life. I took a couple of public health and exercise classes which found my - now - love and passion for being a health coach. Seeing people achieve their health and fitness goals while making lasting sustainable habit change, has been something that drives me each day. I love seeing individuals get better with my help which brings a smile to my face."
"I help busy business owners by giving them back the time that they need to focus on their own health. Many entrepreneurs get stuck within the mindset of “this is my business, my baby, and I need to put everything I have into it in order to see it grow”. Which, in a sense is true but to what extent. Lack of sleep, proper nutrition, long nights and an all-or-nothing mindset can really create friction in one's mental and physical health. We have all heard the saying “you are what you eat” and it really does matter in the sense that the fuel you use from food has a bearing on one's state of mind and health. I help them understand the importance of nutrition, fitness and having a lifestyle that is sustainable to them and their goals. Knowing that just a little bit of exercise a day, eating nutrition-dense foods, getting a good amount of quality sleep can give back busy business owners time to put back into their business. Having a health coach, to me, is a key step stone to any entrepreneur who wants to live up their productivity, energy levels, how confident they feel, and how they view themselves."
"I actually found my first “online client” by just starting a conversation with everyone that liked my content, connected with me, and commented back on a post. I did not use any lead generator but just sent them a message and asked them a question; “what was one take away about this piece of content, that stood out the most to you?” from there we built that relationship and I told them what I did for a living and the rest was history. I think it is really important for any coach to think about the person you are talking to more than wanting to make a sale/ get another client. That relationship can really lead to places as well as generate more leads for you from just word of mouth."
"Most health coaches have your typical fitness, nutrition, and accountability plan but I like to take my work a step further by using a couple extra features. I use habit formation techniques with worksheets that focus on how to create sustainable change. Incorporate mindset training as well as visionary exercises that they can use in their business, life or relationships. This leads into understanding their social and physical environments which we go through exercises looking at how to best set up a working environment that is to our goals. Finally, I keep it small. Some coaches love to have a lot of clients all at once and for me, that just does not give the client and I one-on-one time to be able to prosper our relationship further. Yes, I am their coach but also I want the person to open up to me so that we can get as much information as possible to be able to adjust/ create the best plan possible. Also, it’s all about balance. If I had 100 clients, I would not have time for all of them, let alone time for myself to be able to do things that I want to do. Self-care is important and keeping it small allows me to train smarter and not harder."
Don't wait until you have time for self-care activities, it will never come. Do it today, do it right now, stop reading and take a break until it's too late!
