I recently received my order of Car Magnets from www.buildasign.com and I'm thrilled with their quality.
I've ordered car magnets in the past from several inexpensive (read cheaply made) online printing companies and the paint has chipped off and faded, and one magnet even blew off in the wind!
These magnets from Build A Sign are not only affordable, but durably made as well. The colors are bright; the letters are clear; the magnet is sturdy and holds on strong; and their website was so easy to use. They have plenty of clip art to use or you can upload your own design and logo.
Stay tuned for a $25 giveaway to shop for your own fantastic marketing materials from www.buildasign.com!
I have a few married couples in my 6 week Restoring Wellness program and they have recently shared with me some amazing results from the program that I hadn't anticipated: a closer relationship!
Now, I make no claims to be a relationship counselor, but I am a whole-life coach, which means we do not only focus on your food or ailments.
Throughout our one-on-one calls and within the program itself are opportunities to learn non-violent communication methods, compassionate and successful communication skills, but also the opportunity to grow together in this healing journey of restoring wellness.
Most of the couples have been married into multiple double digits yet they suggest doing things together in the kitchen for the first time during this program; Meal planning, chopping, shopping, experiencing the challenges and triumphs together ...
This program goes way beyond what you eat and what ails you; after all, happiness overall brings healthiness.
Some form of movement usually follows, such as yoga, rebounding or stretching.
When I have a sweet tooth or desire a change, I'll have a chia porridge - either on it's own or with added quinoa (or even a quinoa porridge with added chia). I usually add maca, bee pollen, goji berries and/or blue berries, and ashwagandha. Sometimes I'll add chopped apple and pecans too.
Some of the participants from the 6-week Restoring Wellness program asked about 'A day in the life of Stephanie,' so here goes. Granted, I have my cycles of 'doing awesome' and being 'less disciplined' as does everybody else (I'll bold the 'doing awesome,' yet not everyday tasks), this is at least an idea of my routine.
It was a challenge to write all of this down because sometimes I do something, such as add chia seeds to my daily lemon water, without thinking of it as a 'gesture' to be written down. Nonetheless, below is a sample day.... Click on the images to view larger versions.
Depending on the day, I may have client calls or classes to teach first thing. After which, I'd make some breakfast, which varies on design but is almost always veggie-based. I usually eat breakfast between 8am and 9am after exercise and getting ready for the day. On days I have to be away of my home office, I'll eat between 7am and 8am. Here are some sample breakfasts.
Coaching calls and/or classes continue throughout the day, 7 days a week. In between that, I'm updating my program, reading new material for the program, working on my book, marketing, etc. I love being self-employed but it often means being busier than most.
I strive to be in bed by 9pm so I can be solidly sleeping by 10pm. Sometimes, but not as often as I aspire, I'll meditate before bed after a little stretching.
If I think of more to add, I will... but this is a glimpse into my daily routine and meals.
Vemma Nutrition Company Wins 100 Industry And Consumer Awards In Just Three Years
by TINA WILLIAMS on MARCH 13, 2014
Vemma Nutrition reached a milestone achievement recently, winning 100 prestigious awards in just three short years.
Recognized between 2011 and 2013 with these accolades for business, marketing, creative direction, social media and community outreach programs, the awards are further proof that Vemma is a highly innovative, industry-leading manufacturer of premium nutritional ready-to-drink beverages.
"Consumer demand for healthy beverages continues to rise in the U.S., and we strive to meet those needs by providing premium nutrition in a delicious, easy-to-drink beverage," explained Vemma Executive VP of Marketing and Brand Development Mark Patterson. "To have won 100 awards in just three years is quite an accomplishment, and to be recognized by both our industry peers and consumers is an amazing honor."
Corporate honors received include the American Business Awards' "Executive of the Year" for Vemma Founder BK Boreyko, considered the "Oscar" of the business world; inclusion on the Direct Selling News "DSN Global 100" List, highlighting the most successful direct selling companies in the world; and recognition as one of Arizona's Fastest Growing Companies.
For its dynamic online presence, Vemma has earned multiple highly acclaimed awards as well. In recognition of Vemma's web creativity and excellence in marketing communications, the Vemma Business app has earned a Platinum MarCom Award, a Silver W3 Award, and a Silver Communicator Award. The Vemma Bod-e app has garnered five prestigious honors, including a Gold Communicator Award for the Bod-e Trainer website.
Vemma's Facebook and other social media campaigns have also been recognized with top honors. The Chris Powell 12-Week Bod-e Challenge social media campaign and the Vemma Instagram site received Platinum MarCom Awards, the highest honors for excellence in marketing. The company's social media program supporting Verve's recent rebranding earned a Bronze Stevie from the American Business Awards, and the endeavors to engage at a community level via its "Verve Out" social media campaign earned the company a Gold MarCom Award.
Consumers are casting their votes for Vemma products as well. Vemma Bod-e®, developed in conjunction with celebrity trainers Chris and Heidi Powell, won the People's Choice Award in the Favorite Consumer Product category of the American Business Awards, and one of Verve's newest energy drinks, Bold, won the People's Choice for Best New Product at the 2013 American Business Awards.

This blog is on the many avenues that interest Coach Stephanie. Subjects are a vast array of hobbies, career, desires, coaching and lifestyle.
"I am here for support, guidance, education and as an example of what works for ME. What works for me may work for you or at least provide you with a starting point from which to explore. I am discovering what works for me at every moment. I don’t have it all figured out, but I do feel I have a teaching and healing nature with which I am here to share. In this blog, I offer you a view into my practice of being that which makes my experience - MINE."
Certified Holistic Health and Nutrition Practitioner, Stephanie Austin, was guided into holistic living in 2002 when she was diagnosed with Dermatomyositis, an uncommon autoimmune disease affecting the skin and muscle.
Opting for education rather than medication, Austin enrolled in a Holistic Health Practitioner program in 2004 after realizing she'd been gifted with disease so that she may learn to heal herself and later teach others to do the same.
Since her education, Austin has released over 60 pounds and conquered years of junk food addiction through holistic healing and nutrition techniques that she now passes onto others through her business, Wellness by Mother Nature.
Austin has been the Director of Education and Board Member for the nonprofit organization, The Wellness Kitchen. She is the recipient of the 2015 Outstanding Graduate Award from www.ACHS.edu.
Austin is an author, coach and speaker who empowers people on the healing value of nutrition and the innate self-healing abilities of a body in balance.
She has helped hundreds of people achieve balance through methods such as meditation, herbs, movement, supplements, aromatherapy, homeopathy, nutrition, mind-body connection, energy healing and by closely listening to the needs of her clients.
It is awareness that brings change, not your effort. Why does it happen through awareness? - because the awareness changes you. And when you are different, the world is different. It is not a question of creating a different world, it is only a question of creating a different you. You are your world; so if you change, the world changes.
