“I went through the OTA the same time I was putting a chronic illness into remission after a life long battle. So things were just getting good in a lot of ways. I was coaching/training clients in between massaging them. Days were long trading money for hours even at $80-100/hour per $60 min session. I was leasing a private fitness studio and a had separate massage practice at the same time. I made plenty of money, but that life was unsustainable with my health issues.

Now, I no longer have any reason to step in a gym or touch another human being if I don’t want to. I get to work with people I want to work with instead of people put in front of me or because I need to pay my mortgage or one of the leases on the gym space. I’m not financially tied to anything but my computer and the people I choose to empower. I can do almost anything in a video chat now, that I could in person before. I had to get better at explaining myself, that’s all.

Where else can I learn to reach people from all over the world who live with chronic illness and apply ALL of my modalities in one training package?  I now have the time, renewed purpose and mental capacity to write a book and start a podcast while serving to empower some of the most amazing people I have ever met in different continents and countries across the world.  Ya.. I’d say taking OTA has changed things for me a bit.”
