I've learned how to eat differently and was hoping to make a career out of diet coaching. Many years ago, before anyone knew what it was (including me) I took a course to be a coach. I led a diet support group for a while, but then I couldn't get another one going.
So, one of the neighbors who had complimented me the other day also looked like she had lost weight, so I told her. She said that she had joined a diet guru's group. I was shocked, because I had thought that group had disbanded. Everyone, including the guru, gains weight when it's over. It's a very extreme diet, one you can't live on and totally opposite to my method. I mentioned that to the neighbor.
"So, what's your method?"We continued talking pleasantly, but was I wrong to give her that answer?
"Sorry, but I'm not giving you my method for free when you're paying someone else."
I'm tired of giving people my methods and eating philosophy and advice for free. That's why nobody pays. I have to take myself more seriously, more professionally. And I ought to go back to writing my book about losing weight.
What do you think?
