Suzanne Monroe started the International Association of Wellness Professionals to support holistic health practitioners and wellness professionals to leverage their talents and skills to grow profitable, sustainable businesses that make a difference in the health and lives of others. Her mission is to allow more holistic professionals to continue their work without struggle, follow their dreams, and make a big impact in the world. As a wellness professional herself, Suzanne knows the trials of following your passion while waiting for success to arrive. As the owner of her own nutritional coaching business for five years, Suzanne experienced many ups and downs on her path to growing a business that would support her lifestyle while fulfilling her passion. What made a fundamental difference on her journey to success was finding mentors and like-minded professionals who shared similar challenges and provided support. Suzanne followed in the footsteps of her successful mentors and implemented strategic steps in her business to reach her goals. But the journey to success was a bit lonely, as she saw many of her peers and colleagues lose faith and return to work that wasn’t fulfilling their unique purpose. Suzanne knew that their work could profoundly impact the lives of others, if only they were given the same tools she discovered. Now she is inspired to help other wellness professionals create sustainable success with tons of support on their journey, alongside a community who is cheering them on.

As a busy mom of three little ones, Katie Kimball knows a thing or two about saving time in the kitchen, but she also wants the best of health and nutrition for her family. From yogurt to salad dressing, the Kimball kitchen is filled with homemade foods with nary a box or package in sight. Kimball's blog, Kitchen Stewardship, is focused on balancing nutrition with frugality, the environment with the time available, all as good stewards of God's gifts. Since 2009 KS has offered family-friendly recipes, science geek research into traditional foods and real food nutrition, and lots of helpful tips with a healthy dose of humor and real-life personal experience. A teacher by training, Katie Kimball is well known for her detailed recipes, breaking everything down into baby steps that won't overwhelm even the most nervous newlywed on her first foray into cooking with real food. Her goal is to make whole foods easy (& tasty) for any family to eat day in and day out. The video "introduction" is really a lesson on how to make homemade mayonnaise, something that is pretty difficult to find using only wholesome ingredients. Her Learn It Live course will cover a bit of "reverse engineering" as well - how to make recipes that call for cream of chicken soup completely from scratch using real ingredients. See more of Katie and Kitchen Stewardship at http://www.kitchenstewardship.com/about-2/.
