How this ALL started!!!
“God cares a lot more about who you are, and who you are becoming, than who you once were”! Dale G. Renlund
In the Spring of 2015, I was given the dream of starting my own Wellness Business. After many prayers, thoughts, and MUCH pondering, I choose to name my business – “Become A Better You Wellness and Coaching”.
It was brought to my attention by my first web designer that if you take the first letters of each of those words BECOME A BETTER YOU – B A B Y – It spells B.A.B.Y. I realized at that time the reason for choosing this particular name for my business is that it means ‘BABY Steps’ into recovery.
This is huge – because, what are BABY Steps into recovery?
Recovery looks different for every one of us. In my mind, body, spirit, and emotions recovery means…. becoming something different than you had before. I’m not going to say becoming ‘Better’, I choose to say…I’m choosing a different path to bring me more peace, happiness, joy, contentment, etc. Really whatever makes you happy in the “Here and Right Now Moments In Your Life”. From my personal experience, the ‘Better’ became AFTER I choose different paths to find peace, happiness, joy, contentment, etc.
I can honestly say that today, I am in a much ‘Better’ place in my life mentally, physically, spiritually, emotionally, and financially than EVER before in my life.
This quote describes my journey well – “DO NOT FOLLOW WHERE THE PATH MAY LEAD — GO INSTEAD WHERE THERE IS NO PATH AND LEAVE A TRAIL”!
I had to choose, years and years ago that I was going to leave the path that I was brought up believing in ALL these areas, and go out in the world to create and find my path.
Today my path is a beautiful, bright, positive, and nurturing path.
Another quote that is in my soul is “No one saves us but ourselves.
No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path.” Buddha
I’ve learned so much over my 53 almost 54 years of life. And one of the biggest things that I have been able to learn is that even though ‘I’ get to choose my path, and ‘I’ get to do ALL the recovering and healing…that there is ONE VERY, VERY important piece to remember. I DID NOT DO THIS ALONE! I DID NOT CREATE, FIND, MOLD THIS “New Path” MYSELF!!! I have had MANY, MANY doctors, therapists, friends, family members, church leaders who have been my “Personal Cheerleaders”!
With that being said – I am thrilled to announce that I am ready to become the “Wellness Coach” and “Cheerleader” that I dreamed about clear back in that beautiful Spring of 2015.
I will be opening up my Coaching business to 10 clients starting the week of April 4th, 2022.
I am SO excited to offer Coaching to those individuals who want to “Leave the path that is not necessarily fulfilling their needs right now, to create a different path for themselves.” And to become the BEST VERSION OF THEMSELVES, whatever that may look like.
The areas of coaching services that are being offered right now are :

A little background of where my dream started me back in 2015.
I started teaching Wellness Classes in group settings. I primarily focused on weight loss, diet, and exercising. I was successful in this for 2 years. I didn’t focus much on the other aspects (mental and emotional).
Over the years, I have discovered that the primary key is to embrace the mental and emotional first, then all the rest of the areas start healing themselves. This is my new way of approaching Wellness. And this is how I will be coaching from here on out.
Thank you so much for coming to my Blog!
I will always leave you with this – Annette believes in You!
