"You will learn a lot from these two fabulous women who put this together. If it weren’t for these two, I don’t think I would have passed! Thanks Molly and Billie, you rock! "

Kim Lazurus

"Really appreciate the study materials, Molly. It's been really helpful to have everything organized"

Terri Leichty

"Thank you to the group and the Molly's flashcards - they helped me pass. Ladies, although I couldn't join any of the calls being on a completely different time zone I learnt so much from your conversations and perspectives on the call."

Amy Benbow Turner

"Billie, your study course is my "bible" as I'm finally preparing to write the exam this June. I've got a whole binder of the flash cards, PDFs and notes that I carry with me in case I'll have spare time to review. The links that you provided in the course are also great to have when I'm sitting around. I'm pretty sure that I'll feel well prepared when exam time rolls around. THANK YOU for the amazing prep course. "

Shirley Garrett

"This was a very good, well thought out, non-stressful way to learn the material in an organized way so that we had enough time to grasp the different concepts and feel ready for the exam. The teachers were both very supportive and I felt like there was someone there to help you through any issues we encountered."

Satyan Shah

"This program is very comprehensive and keeps you focused on what is necessary and relevant to demonstrate that you are competent and qualified to be certified as a health and wellness coach."

Barbara Walton

"I realy appreciate the lay out of the program and the book pages. These resources have allowed me to get laser focused on the areas which I am struggling with. It has been a great time saver not having to think about . "where did I see that?" This entire program has been comprehensive and I am feeling well prepared for the exam."
