She was a notoriously picky eater each attempted a new food earned gases and shocked faces from our friends in vain. Wow Jackie trying something new. They would say every single time. It was always a big vice, so big of a fight that Jackie just embraced the label and stopped even try new foods altogether. It wasn't worth making a scene every time she ate a green beam, but things were about to change and change quickly: Jackie's, epoch,
to teach a year abroad in China was approved before she knew she was off to the other side of the world, as you can imagine, she was in for a rough ride at least call narrowly speaking, The thing is it actually wasn't that hard for Jackie to break outside of herself imposed food boundaries? Auctioning was a mindset in environmental shift. That's what she found in China from her very first dinner. She tried everything. Yes, everything on the table since dinner was served family style to her and her fellow teachers. She got to eat what she wanted in time it she wanted an amount that she wanted. There was no pressure to eat everything on a paid for plate. There were no friends during her ready to applaud. If she tried something new in fact or a new friends in Beijing, Jackie wasn't known as a picky eater. She was just Jackie without that label. The pressure in the expectations Jackie began to thrive should learn to appreciate all kinds of foods that she would have never considered even tasting. At home. You not only had an easier time eating with friends. It restaurants. She also felt healthier. Finally, at age, twenty three Jackie no longer considered herself a picket eater.
One is to help others break away from that label as well. At that point, she had found a facebook group catering to picky eaters and realized that many of them had tried to unload their picky habits but were struggling, nutritionist or therapists. They were working. Didn't understand what it was really liked to be an adult picky eater. They would just say what are you change? He understood that it was more complicated than that she'd been there herself. She knew she could Others outgrow their limited diet more effectively than confused and frustrated health coaches to only six months into your teaching in China, Jackie completed the online Health Cushing Certification programme from the Institute for innovative nutrition and took her passion for good food and wellness to an official by this point, Jackie, had made a bit of a name for herself in that picky eaters, Facebook group, and when she announced that she was now officially certify to be a health coach. She quickly found her first client. Together they created an action plan for beating food, picking us that included five one on one phone coaching sessions, personalize recipes and a variety of handouts to help fight embarrassment, sent up to fear and looked toward a healthier,
you're. The programme worked well for that client and ass. She moved on happier and healthier than other Jackie got another client. She continued to stay active in that picket years Facebook Group, but she also built a blogging website. She also found other pockets of adult picky eater communities elsewhere online I'll, come back to that at the end by the weakest another existed eater and she knew that as a small time side hustler. She didn't have money to figure out paid advertising, but you did have time to invest in online communities by building relationships and a reputation. No, isn't it her growing knowledge that may people look up to her knees communities. It was her thorough honesty about our own story, struggle and transformation. At the end of the year, Jackie move back to Austin Texas and started a new job as an operations manager for an element school word, spread among her friends and family and that local community, our eating transformation and before she knew she had more clients. When she started offering a free consultation to get people on the door, she saw an instant boosting the number of people that contact her. Of course, many these people would not compared to the full coating package she sought, but it did lower the barrier to entry.
Folks who are interested but skeptical by a few months into the hustle. This just started this year by the way Jackie was consistently earnings. Five hundred dollars a month through the niche health coaching look, I'm wondering if there is a way to treat picky eating early on rather than wanted to become an adult lifestyle. So she began to offer a service for parents picky eaters, but you don't want to stop there either in twenty, eighteen jack elements that will release her first print book for children. It's about a child who overcomes her own food pick yes, but the book Also full of lessons and reminders for parents of picking eaters, such as reducing pressure around food and avoiding offering bribes Jackie, throw that are story and hard work have resulted in changing lives and widening palates, which is eager to see if she can impact far more people with that upcoming buck. She also still has more new foods to try
while this was going to fund are related to it, a bit myself because for a long time I was also very peculiar, please, through a lot of my childhood and young adulthood, pretty much everything they did. Jackie mentioned the makin cheese, the pizza, the girl, she's Et Cetera. Those were definitely staples in my diet, but equally firm up. He said to be honest, and I was also really curious about this market, this concept of pockets of picky eater communities. I read that my note sounds like what's that about, so I asked Whitney who worked with me on a show detract from others down include links and shone out that it was an interesting shared identity point to rally round and even more interesting, because I think to join with those communities would like to participate to be part of it. It seems like you almost have to want to change like there are two to four.
Groups here. You ve got people were picket years and have no desire to change. Then you ve got people who, like you, know what it really would be good to eat more than makin cheese and broke cheese and pizza every day, but just how these struggles and whenever I try something new. My friends gonna make a big deal out of it. To me, this kind of points to like one of the very positive things about the internet is it allows people to connect based on all these like weird little shared interests. I gotta say it's weird, but it's just like. I can't really imagined up new picky eaters group meeting up at the local Starbucks and, of course, wherever there are communities of shared identity, those communities have needs and if somebody becomes an expert like Jackie, didn't story, Scott away to meet those needs and got away to make some money from it. So good for her, congratulations, Jackie and if you want.
Those shone out soon about her website, as well as pockets of picky eater communities to swing by dishonest school. Dotcom, slash three, fifty that's three, five zero. As always remember, inspiration is good, but inspiration with action is so much better. Thank you for listening to day I'll, be back tomorrow with the weekly recap. I'm critical about recital school.
