This past weekend, 1000 IIN students and graduates came together to take part in IIN’s Live March 2014 Conference. Over the course of Saturday and Sunday, inspiring speakers from Arianna Huffington to Deepak Chopra to IIN’s founder, Joshua Rosenthal, shared their insights and visions with an audience infused with energy and excitement, as well as over 5,000 people live-streaming the conference from home.
Held at Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York City, the conference provided a meaningful opportunity for IIN community members to meet one another in person, after many months of connecting online. The IIN film crew was on site to capture the whole weekend and check in with participants about what the conference meant to them.
How do the lives of IIN students change once they graduate? There are countless different career paths and lifestyles that IIN alumni choose to pursue, and each of our grads creates a niche unique to their talents, interests, and goals for the future. The IIN crew, on location in Annapolis, Maryland, stopped to visit with a few Health Coaches to hear their stories of success after IIN.

Technology is perhaps the only issue affecting modern life as powerfully as the global health crisis. Like the health crisis, technology can be something that stunts our growth as humans (remember Wall-E, anyone?), or an opportunity for positive, far-reaching transformation. IIN grad Lindsey Witmer Collins has made it her mission to make sure it’s the latter, harnessing the power of technology to unite and empower people in the name of wellness.
2012 graduate Kelly Roberts has always understood the importance of healthy habits. Growing up, her father was a chef, her mother owned a women’s gym, and her household was a strictly junk-food- and soda-free zone.
However, it wasn’t until she enrolled in the Health Coach Training Program that she realized how she could use her healthy background and passion for wellness to create the career of her dreams.
Read on to discover how Integrative Nutrition provided Kelly with the knowledge and inspiration to help others create a happy, healthy, and active lifestyle.
How does the IIN community stay engaged and add to the momentum of the positive global ripple effect? At the launch of the latest edition of Joshua Rosenthal’s book, Integrative Nutrition, the IIN film crew connected with alumni and students to explore this question. From grads who remain BFF years after the training, to those who plan to write their own books following Joshua’s new book-writing course, everyone at the event contributed to the passion and energy pulsing through Lincoln Center.
When you hear the name Marie Forleo a lot of things come to mind: smart, funny, compassionate, kind, successful, happy, and inspirational, to name just a few. She seems to have the life we’re all looking for – making millions doing what she loves while making the world a better place.
Marie was a young New Jersey girl with a dream and a laptop. Early in her career she was a life coach, writer, and fitness instructor. With her skills and a lot of hard work, she built her million-dollar empire. She has been named a thought leader for our generation by Oprah, and one of Tony Robbins’ “New Money Masters.”
As Laura and Ilene near the 6-month mark in their training at IIN, we return check in on the progress they’ve made since Chapter 2. In this episode, they share their thoughts on the business-building principles they’re learning in the training, and how they see their individual Health Coach careers unfolding once the training program ends.
Through the years I’ve mentored many IIN graduates, and they all have similar concerns.
They wonder, “How will I make money?”
I answer, “Start doing the work.”
They say, “But I’m afraid no one will take me seriously.”
I answer, “Start doing the work.”
They say, “I don’t know where to start.”
I answer, “Start anywhere. Do the work.”
Trust me, when I started my business I felt clueless.
So how did I go from making zero dollars to matching my husband’s salary this month?
I started doing the work.
For Corona Brady, when a spiraling host of physical problems seemed to require a lifetime of prescriptions, she did not take the news lying down. Wanting to be the master of her body, her health—and her life—she learned to use diet and lifestyle choices to cure her ailments without any medication.
So when she discovered IIN a few years later, enrolling was a no-brainer. After thoroughly implementing the principles of holistic, sustainable wellness in her own life, she felt driven to foster healthy changes in the lives of others.
Two and a half years after graduating, Corona continues to inspire clients by practicing what she preaches. “I’m the real deal,” she says. “I’ve gone from being clueless, to living these principles every day.”
