About two years ago, I spent a blood curdling amount of money on an online business coach.
With the vague aspiration that:
“I wanna do something online. You know, so I can have the freedom to travel with my family".
I had no idea WHAT I wanted to do online.
I had no email list, no strategy, no product, no social media following.
My husband and I were FIRMLY rooted in our jobs in Toronto with no financial exit route in sight.
I’m writing this in our temporary home in Costa Rica.
I’ve had the opportunity to change hundreds of lives. Every day I get emails thanking me for the impact of my online weight loss program, the 28 Day Transformation Challenge.
Beside me are shells that my kids and I collected on the beach this morning.
And I can hear my husband (who now works for me) giving them swimming lessons in the pool out front.
This is possible for anyone.
I just wanted you to know that.
I have spent the past few years studying online business. I’ve spent tens of thousands of dollars on courses and mentors and I LOVE it, but to be honest – I kind of want to save you the effort.
That’s why I’m paying it forward – and offering business coaching to anyone who wants help:
If that sounds like a dream – and you are ready to take the plunge and CREATE the life you want- click below to book a FREE consultation call.
My one hour call with Oonagh was nothing short of epic. Her quickfire answers to my questions were peppered with actionable next steps, broken down into manageable and easy-to-understand tasks. I left our conversation with clarity and excitement, ready to tackle my to-do list, unbothered by confusion or overwhelm. Her energy is infectious and her advice is wicked valuable."
Julia's Coaching Story
Julia was a trainer but really wanted to be a life coach or…something. She wasn’t quite sure, but she knew her passion lay in helping people recover from addictions and live healthier and happier lives.
During her coaching, Julia got totally clear on her unique brand and exactly what she wanted to offer to the world. We got strategic about her positioning, her website and her social media. We got organized about exactly how she would market and deliver her coaching services.
There was some money mindset work to be done as Julia didn’t want to come off as ‘salesy’ but she is now totally confident in asking to be compensated as she deserves.
Best of all, the clients are ‘literally falling out of the sky’.

Caroline's Coaching Story
Caroline already had a Stroller Fit Bootcamp going in Saint John, NB. But she wanted to expand her offerings (add more Bootcamps? Move online? Life Coaching?) in order help more people. She was also feeling wiped and needed things to be a bit easier for her and her family.
During the three months we worked together, Caroline created TWO online communities (one paid, one free), started a new Bootcamp class, hired her first trainer, started a very profitable online nutrition program and started life coaching, which is her new passion.

Tricia's Coaching Story
Tricia was a trainer who had always worked for other people. She LOVED teaching and helping people get fitter and she was ready to stop working for other people and start to build her own fitness company.
The thing is – she had just moved to a new town and she didn’t know anyone. Plus, with the move and everything, she had let her own fitness slip and wasn’t feeling very…inspiring.
Her 3 month goals were to 1. Get herself in the best shape of her life. 2. Start her own Bootcamp company.

Erin's Coaching Story
Erin was not your average trainer/fitness instructor.
She had a dream of a fitness brand that was a bit edgier- specifically for people who wanted to stay in shape but weren’t into the florescent lights, canned music and perky instructors found at your local Globo Gym.
The problem was that Erin tended to get lost in the ‘conceptual’ stage of business development. She had a TON of amazing ideas but no idea where to start and what to do first.
In the three months that Erin and I worked together, she created a SICK alternative fitness brand, a beautiful website optimized for sales, an online community of Muscle Witches AND she has her first class ready to launch to her new community.

Lisa's Coaching Story
I met Oonagh Duncan for the first time when I attended her Transformation in Tulum retreat in Mexico. Little did I know that this meeting and those 7 days spent on the beach in paradise would be the catalyst to my entire life changing.
At the time of this meeting, I was working as a Management Consultant for a Global Consulting Company in downtown Toronto. I was making a great salary and travelling the world and frankly, doing quite well for myself. The problem was that I knew I could do more and that I wanted to do more but I had no idea what this "more" looked like. I was approaching my 50th birthday and I had an idea that I might like to start my own business. Notice the language in that last sentence. I was not convinced at all that I could do this, and even if I had a strong belief that I could, I had no idea where to start. After spending a few weeks thinking about it, I decided to give Oonagh a call to see if she could help. During our initial consultation, she gave me some clear, actionable steps I could take to make my dream a reality. I was inspired and immediately signed up for her business coaching. Oonagh helped me to get crystal clear on exactly what I wanted to do, who my ideal client was and how to jump start my business. We worked together for 3 months and by the end of our time together, I had left my corporate job, launched my own career consulting company and had the tools needed to be successful. Less than 2 months after officially launching my business, I had my first paying client for a high ticket item that 100% paid for the cost of my investment with Oonagh.
If you are thinking of starting your own business but are not sure where to start, I highly recommend you give Oonagh a call. In less than 6 months, I went from working in a high stress corporate job to starting my own business and generating revenue to match my full time income. If I can do it, you can too! Oh, and I just booked a trip to Costa Rico for a month where I plan to work from the beach. How awesome is that?
Lisa's Business Story
Just in case you saw those stories and thought: “I don’t have the skills/time/money/personality to create an online business on the side”-
I could introduce you to a mum who was on food stamps but made an online empire with a cake blog.
And a little old granny who makes $300K a year teaching art classes in her living room.
The point is: whether you think you can or you can’t – you are right. (This applies to business, weight loss, and all the rest of it, by the way.)
I’m telling you – from my sweet ass view here in Costa Rica – This shit CAN happen. Why NOT you?
