Mary Sheila Gonnella

Mary Sheila has been working in the field of nutrition for over 12 years, in addition to serving her cliental as a Nutrition Consultant she has been teaching and supporting nutrition entrepreneurs to realize their potential and find success in this dynamic growing field. 

Michael LeValley

Michael is a life-long entrepreneur, who  works with high level transformational teachers and coaches. He helps them create a bigger impact with business and marketing strategy and implementation. 
"Mary Sheila is an amazing instructor. She is a pearl in the sea of education. 

Her way of teaching is so receptive and engaging. She has a way of explaining complicated material and making it apply to real life. 

I was so lucky to have her as an instructor. She is a great example of the type of NC I want to be."
"Spending the last eighteen months with Mary Sheila Gonnella as my teacher has been an opportunity and an educational experience of a lifetime. 

From the moment class began, she was inspiring, fun, calm, well-spoken and so engaging in the classroom. She has always been so well prepared for each class, and her knowledge and understanding of holistic nutrition is so deep that she is able to take all that we learn and relate it to everyday life examples that are easy to understand.   

I feel that she is proud to be a student herself, always respecting, learning, going to conferences, local classes and groups and acknowledging others. She is always current with what is going on and mentions the different books, authors and people in the field regularly. 

She is always able to answer a question and takes the time to provide a thorough explanation.  She so beautifully makes one think of the full body with each question, always bringing it back to a holistic point of view. 

She has made me feel confident that I can help people as I begin working in my field. Because of her, I feel like I will be able to navigate my time with a client professionally and I will always be able to take any situation and feel comfortable with it as I can always bring it back to the basics.

Mary Sheila’s energy and teaching style will always play an integral part in my holistic nutrition journey."

- Jodi Ladetzky, NC
"Hi Michael! Thank you for the awesome call this morning ! You rock my world... and I know there is a lot more rocking to come !!!

Yeah! This is starting to feel so easy !!!

You have helped me TREMENDOUSLY in moving forward with REACHING OUT ...I had a stopper on that before...IT's WORKING !!!"
- Gitta
Having Michael on my team has been invaluable. Working alone is daunting. There is so much work that goes into creating and launching a new program; it was so overwhelming that I hesitated to start. 

When I did start I would stall out. He had my back and helped design & develop the curriculum and handle the marketing They are also great cheer leaders! They encourage me to keep moving forward when I had my doubts.

Without hesitation. Michael is for anyone ready to use online courses and webinars as a way to reach a bigger audience, making a bigger impact and enroll people into your coaching programs. Put another way, Michael has figured out how to do all the background work so you can do what you do best … teach and coach.
- Paul Hasselbeck

 The 6 principles to your success as a Nutrition Professional
Principle #1 -

Confidence and Clarity
You know that you have the potential to transform peoples lives. Helping people to change their food and lifestyle practices, takes confidence. 

To be successful you have to stand in your strength. You have to be clear with your message and your offer. 

This clarity will help to bring you the confidence that is essential as an entrepreneur and this is a mindset you need to master. 
Principle #2 -

Create a transformational client experience
Knowing how to take someone from a “what is it you do?” to a paying client who gets results, is a process. 

Knowing the ins and outs of working with clients, how to create a package vs a one off, how to make sure that your client can go through your process to get results, will help to get your clients coming back for more, or sharing your awesomeness with their friends! 

I have some clients who have worked with me for 7 years now, and have joined many of my programs and worked with me one on one over the years because it helps them to stay healthy and accountable. 
Principle #3 - 

Collaboration vs. Competition
Let's face it, there are a lot of us out there. Learning how to work together is key! And it's not just us, the more we work with doctors, with other health professionals, and with one another, the more we have the potential to change the paradigm. 

You don’t need to, nor should you go it alone! Collaboration is one of the keys to solving your complicated client cases.

By joining this group, you are going to not only be open to learning from me, but from the other members of this group. 

You are going to be encouraged to work together, to play ideas off of one another, and to ask for support as you go through the process. 
Principle #4 - 

Create your Tribe
You don’t need to have 100,000 email addresses to be successful, but you do want the right people to be on the receiving end of your content, who will benefit from your wisdom and your service, and feel like you are talking to them. 

Your tribe can be in your neighborhood, your clinic, your WWW, or your facebook feed. You have to be delivering a message they are interested in. Let me show you how to do that.
Principle #5 - 

Communicate your message
Run, don’t walk to the nearest stage. And in this day and age, the stage can mean many things, so don’t worry, I am still talking to you if you have stage fright! 

You have to learn how to grow your voice and speak about your passion This will give you the authority and presence to get peoples attention, and to help you to remember all the important stuff, and feel confident. 

Speak to deeply know and master your content. 

I have built my message, and my presence on teaching. I now know this has been my secret ingredient to success, and I want to share the recipe with you! 
Principle #6 - 

Content Creation
To know something is to be doing it. 

If you join me, you are saying yes to creating your unique content and to implementing what you learn here so that you can start making money and helping people. 

The two go hand in hand. If you choose to join me, make this six months be your walk on the escalator. Get there faster, get it done, and start or accelerate your practice. 

 There is nothing like a group of likeminded people to hold you accountable and to help you to move forward.
