"The Vegan Journey: A Beginner's Pathway" - Transition to a vegan/plant-based eating routine with more clarity, confidence and consistency

Congratulations, you've just taken the first step on the path to becoming a confident vegan/plant-based eater!  Or perhaps you have been on this path for a bit; you are struggling with maintaining this lifestyle and you need a spark to reignite the flame.

No matter where you are in your journey, it's a wonderful decision you are making, but, let's face it, it's also one that can have its fair share of fears, frustrations and obstacles.

There are times when you probably feel you're not sure what you're supposed to be doing or how to do it. And this might lead to you becoming overwhelmed which in turn eats away at your confidence.

But don't get discouraged. You're not alone!

I went through this same thing almost eight years ago when I started my journey with its dips and valleys. Dealing with numerous issues and situations - what to eat, how much to eat, worrying about nutrition, getting easy/inexpensive/tasty recipes, entertaining at home, going to parties, eating in restaurants, answering probing questions from family, friends and colleagues, traveling as a vegan.

I began my vegan journey as a result of being determined to find a way to get off of dangerous blood pressure and cholesterol medication; to become a healthier me so I would be around to enjoy my family and friends, and my love of travel - maybe that's you too!

This led me to countless nights starring at my computer screen, eating up my precious time, to find the information I needed to move forward. I became so overwhelmed with all the tons of information; I became discouraged. The only support I had was my husband who thankfully joined me on the journey, but he too was a novice.

I'd drop my head in my hands and wished there was something available that pulled pertinent information together in one place to help me and would offer me personal support to help me build by self-confidence in the decision I had made. Through perseverance and pure stubbornness, I made my way and after almost 8 years, I have never looked back.

But it was this struggle that led me to the development of "The Vegan Journey: A Beginner's Pathway" online learning experience and my strategically designed "5 B's Stepping Stones Sequence" - Be Alert! Be Mindful! Be Prepared! Be Accountable! and the one that oversees all the rest, Be Supported!

I want to make sure people like you do not have to go through the hardships I had to as I began my vegan journey. I want people like you to experience the uplifting feeling of having more control in your life, knowing you are doing the best you can for your health and longevity, and in turn for your family, friends and colleagues as they get to experience your best as well.

I want to help guide you along your path to be empowered, confident, happy, healthy, satisfied and living the fabulous life you want for yourself. This new, stronger you will have a new outlook on life. Your new-found confidence will impact all aspects of your life. 

I want to be there to help you go from overwhelm, self-doubt and uncertainty to clarity, confidence and consistency.

I’m so grateful to Lou for offering her course, “The Vegan Journey: A Beginner’s Pathway”. It helped me realize that I don’t have to go “all or nothing”, but I can take my time to become a vegan/plant-based eater.
