Interns & Volunteers Sought: Sugar Addicts, Get Free Coaching!

Posted May 02 2012 5:27pm

Beyond Sugar Shock final cover With my next book, Beyond Sugar Shock , scheduled for publication in the United States and Canada on June 1 (and on Nov. 1 in Australia), I need lots of help from dedicated volunteers or interns to spread the word about it.

Sugar addicts and carb addicts around the world need to know, I firmly believe, that this simple, friendly book can help them to easily release destructive habit for good so they can get slimmer, sexier, and sweeter. To help people, we're planning many Book Launch activities. (Stay tuned for another post.)

If you come on board as a Beyond Sugar Shock volunteer or intern, you'll get a number of benefits. Of course, you'll get the satisfaction and "warm fuzzies" from knowing that you're helping others, but you'll receive much more. Keep reading to learn how I'll help you if you help me.

So let's get to you -- how will you benefit when you volunteer or intern for me?

Specifically, anyone who interns or volunteers to help build buzz for Beyond Sugar Shock and the companion Sugar Freedom Now Program, gets:

  • Frequent access to me. (Previous interns and volunteers tell me that just being around me has helped them to improve their lives.)
  • A chance to have your many questions answered. 
  • Complimentary admission to my programs, including one that helps you Bust Stress , another on How to Write How-to Articles with Joan Stewart , and, of course, my popular, six-week Sugar Freedom Now Course , which is the companion program to Beyond Sugar Shock .
  • Free, weekly, half-hour group coaching calls, during which you pick the topics. Previous volunteers and interns have found this to be powerful in helping them to lick sugar or another bad habit (what I call a "babit"). By the way, you don't don't to have sugar issues to get helped, because I'm both a certified certified health coach and certified life coach, thanks to the Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN) and the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching (iPEC).
  • Valuable work experience or, if you're a student, great resume-building duties.
