Kela Robinson Smith Notable Quotes

“I always tell anybody I talk to who wants to be a health coach or that is a health coach, you have to invest in your business. You have to invest in yourself. You’re building a business. This isn’t just a hobby, for most people. It wasn’t a hobby for me. So you have to invest in yourself, so that’s what I did, and I wish I had done it sooner.”
Kela Robinson Smith

“Don’t sit back and not put any money into your business because if you don that, then it’s definitely not going to grow.
                                                – Kela Robinson Smith

“The medical field, I feel like we’re in sick care. We need to be in a well care, and that’s where a health coach comes in.”
Kela Robinson Smith


Episode Summary

When you’re a health coach starting out your business, you may receive the occasional advice of outsourcing and hiring out a team to free up your time. Often times, when this happens, you might feel reluctant to do so because you feel like you need to be at a certain point before you feel comfortable hiring out. I know that’s how it was for me.

In this episode of Health Coach Academy, we’re talking to health coach and wellness educator, Kela Robinson Smith, the mastermind behind the Hormone Puzzle Method and a  successful entrepreneur. She talks about the importance of why we should invest in ourselves and in our business, as well as some practical tips on how to grow our clientele and build out our own teams.
