Before I joined team Live Well I was working hard at my desk job, searching for a way to create a life full of health, passion and purpose, but slowly gaining weight instead. After years of working hard and rewarding myself with happy hours and unhealthy food, I realized that I wasn’t doing myself any favors and that I felt better and had more energy to do what I loved when I treated my body better.
I found the Live Well team and began to focus on my health and investing in myself. Joining the Live Well team has helped me shift my focus to making healthy choices that help me feel my best. I lost weight and my skin cleared up, but more importantly I noticed how much better I sleep, my productivity throughout the day has improved and my mood and energy went through the roof!
I love helping others and living an authentic, real life of health. And I am so much happier building a business around what I love!
I am excited to be a part of Live Well. It is incredible to be able to build a flexible business that will help me achieve what I want professionally and personally.”

Before I joined Live Well International, I was struggling to think of how I would build a successful career as a health coach. I was not sure how to get my business started and felt a bit overwhelmed by the process. I knew that I wanted to develop my business and help people, but I wasn’t really sure where to begin.
I am so happy that I discovered Live Well and Carmen Marshall. I realized that what was missing in my efforts to build my business was being part of a successful team. Carmen is inspiring in her efforts to help others reach their goals. She is an amazing mentor and I know that I will be able to build a successful health coaching business as part of Carmen’s team.”

Nutrition Therapist + Certified Health Coach + Food Lover
I know all too well how it feels to be overweight, overtired, and overwhelmed. I used to carry an extra 65 lbs on my frame and all the mental baggage that went along with it.
Thank goodness Carmen Marshall took the time 6 years ago to listen to me and help me find my way back to balance. That’s why my greatest joy is now being able to do this work with others.
Live Well International has given me the systems, the support, and the kick in the pants my business needed. It’s one thing to be good at helping people improve their health; it’s another thing entirely to make a great living doing it! I’ve learned more about business and marketing in 6 years with Live Well than I learned in 25 years in the corporate world. Carmen has made an entrepreneur out of me, and I love it! Thank you, Live Well, for empowering me with the belief and the tools to create a practice — and a life — that I absolutely love.”

In fact, her friends and family call her the “Healthy Lush.” That’s because she believes that our bodies respond best to joy, not deprivation — especially when we want to lose weight, heal from illness, or find our way back to a good night’s sleep.
Ann received her training from the Nutrition Therapy Institute in Denver, Colorado and the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in New York, where she was trained in clinical nutrition, food therapy, and lifestyle coaching. Drawing on this knowledge, she loves helping people discover what truly nourishes and sustains them so they can achieve their weight goals, overcome chronic health issues, and fall in love with their body and their life!
Ann also serves as the Member Services Director and Nutrition Advisor for Live Well International, where she enjoys supporting Carmen’s tribe of talented partners to grow their businesses and serve their clients.

Claudia + Mike Hall
Claudia and I both climbed the corporate ladder and had it kicked out from under us with layoffs and furloughs. We were introduced to Live Well International just a few months after we started a laser hair removal business and esthetic salon. We were initially only interested in using the supplements and skin care personally, but when our salon clients saw the positive changes in us, they asked to try the products, too. That was the beginning of our business partnership with Live Well. Since then, the products have been the cornerstone of our esthetics regime for our clients. We’ve helped so many people realize their dream of better health and perfect skin.
From a financial perspective, our Live Well income has helped the salon business survive, enabled us to take trips around the world, remodel much of our home, and spend more time with family and friends. It is refreshing to be sailing the Mediterranean, not working our business for a couple weeks, knowing that our Live Well income continues.
Partnering with Live Well has provided great support and training for our growing team. We have a group of great people, always willing to help with education, motivation, and just friendship.”
Claudia and Mike Hall are passionate about health and the healing power of the foods we eat and the nutrients we take. They are also entrepreneurial business coaches and inspire others to grow and realize their full potential and achieve optimal health and financial freedom.
After chasing the American dream for many years in corporate careers, the Halls started a successful laser hair removal business but soon realized that if they didn’t have a client on the table, they weren’t making money. If they took a week off, that was a week without pay, yet the expenses continued on. Since joining Live Well, though, Claudia and Mike realized an income that isn’t tied directly to their labors and have helped others achieve the same. They’ve also improved their health and helped others turn back the hands of time.
Claudia’s 23 year corporate career focused on managing hundreds of people and inspiring them to provide exceptional customer service. Mike has consulted with dozens of corporations to help them to improve their operations and improve product quality. One of Mike’s best managed clients is also his nutritional product supplier. Mike has been a sought after speaker for his knowledge of the inside workings of the supplement industry.
The Halls live in Broomfield, Colorado and love skiing, hiking, fitness, sailing, and traveling the world. They have five children and a brand new grandson.
Health Coach, Relaxation Trainer + Group Fitness Instructor
Being a health coach, relaxation trainer, group-fitness instructor as well as musician, I have a solid foundation for my big dream to jump into the wellness area full time, spreading “the life is wonderful” message by good example, yet, hesitating to make it reality.
After ups and downs in health status I needed a kick-start to get in balance again – that was the moment when from different angles the message reached me “go for the Live Well approach.”
Following the SexyFit Nutrition Challenge, I quickly realized how the Live Well approach wonderfully integrates with my BalanceYrLife business and vision to go for “Quality and fulfillment of life in all areas”.
The Live Well approach to health and business revealed to be for me the missing puzzle piece to make my future business plans round and sound and empowers me to go for the life I love.
Not only did I achieve my personal well-feeling weight, I now also confidently can say that I never have to worry again about it and this after centuries of struggling.
In my BalanceYrLife business, I am a pioneer in quite some areas in Belgium, which requires additional effort to get it flowering. With the support I experience through the Live Well team all over the world, this changed to an exiting, fun adventure that is easily flowing.
The view on wealth, networking & team beyond money and marketing (1+1=3) make me feel “there are more outside there who are thinking my way” which is so empowering.
It is clear now: Full time doing what I like and have enough money to live up to my standards and dreams ☺, contribute to make the world a better place for all, maintain the feeling of “go with the flow” and continue to explore the wonderful world of sound, vibration, energy and rhythm as part of the big Live Well family. Thanks to all of you!!”
My interest in mathematics and science made me studying computer science with the focus on theoretical medicine where I proudly achieved a master degree in 1987. A journey through the information system world followed and raised my maturity level when working in international, technically, mainly male oriented environments with my special “baby” – CIS Asset Management.
Although it was – and is – a very exiting time, I felt there is more, which I can contribute to, and there are other talents in me, which ask for attention.
This made me choosing for an education program on the wellness subject for several years, achieving a collection of certificates and with the final result of starting my own business “BalanceYrLife” as secondary occupation in the year when I turned 50.
Another learning curve started and I realized how different the satisfaction is that I gain from each of my two jobs. This journey I named my PPP (Pension Preparation Plan), which gives me so much energy to keep moving. The Live Well partnership I consider as a milestone on my process through life, perfectly fitting to my approach:
“With enthusiasm and the talent to motivate => serve as an inspiration for others – through characteristics like sunshine and whirlwind => stimulate to be exited practicing self-management – through lateral thinking, spanning bridges and “think beyond boundaries” => generate innovative ideas and develop them.”
Holistic Nutrition + Wellness Coach
Before joining Live Well International, I was looking for a way to earn income that would coincide with my deepest values and goals: to improve my health and sustain it for many years to come; to help others improve their health and lives; to create the flexibility needed to enjoy and spend time with my family; and to achieve a level of financial freedom where I could give back to my community and to those less fortunate.
I was also looking for a healthy lifestyle program to help me curb my sugar cravings and lose those last 10-15 pounds (which I’ve lost numerous times) and keep them off, and also one that would give me the energy to keep up with my 3 year old son at the age of 48 (surprise!). I experienced all of this with the SexyFit Nutrition program and lost 13 pounds.
Partnering with Live Well has opened a whole new world of possibilities for me. It’s gratifying to know I can offer Live Well’s life-changing programs to many who thought they didn’t have the power to improve their health. The online option makes the number of people’s lives I can touch limitless. I love that! It also allows me the freedom and flexibility to educate and be of service to others as a nutrition and wellness coach, while living a healthy and balanced life with my family. Thank you Carmen!”

After working a high-stress, high-tech corporate job in computer programming for many years, Debbie quit to spend more time with her family. It was then she realized how much the stress was affecting her health, and that true health and wellness was much more than yo-yo dieting and a number on the scale. She became a certified health coach in order to live a life of health, passion, and purpose, and to teach others how they can have that same lifestyle. She now presents workshops at her local fitness club and a nearby cooking school, and shares recipes, health tips, and advice on her blog.
Debbie was recently interviewed by a Denver television station as a health and wellness expert highlighting her blog Take Back Your Health and her new, complete circle of health program, MAX360.

She currently lives in Littleton, Colorado with her husband, two children, their wonderful black lab, and 7 colorful tropical fish.
Aspiring Health & Wellness Instructor
Being introduced to LiveWell was an answer to prayer. As I was searching for ways to improve my own health, I found a network of people who are helping me to build a new professional career as well. I am so glad I took this leap of faith!”
Denise is a business professional who, in 2013, saw a year of noteworthy transformation. She had a successful, 23-year career in the environmental consulting/regulatory training field, but reached a point where she no longer felt truly passionate about her work. She was fortunate enough to scale back her hours to limited part-time. Her goal was to de-stress and start taking better care of her health—including losing weight, learning to cook more healthy foods, and adding more physical exercise—all the while, seeking another career path. During her search she was introduced to a member of the LiveWell team. Little did she know that this introduction would not only lead her to the education and support to achieve her own wellness goals, but also to a discovery that she could build a business in the health and wellness arena.
As Denise works to find the right way to use her training talents to help others achieve their health and wellness goals, Carmen Marshall and her beautiful Tribe at LiveWell are providing her with the right tools, training, and support as she moves forward in a healthy and joyful manner.
When she isn’t building her business, spending time with family and friends, traveling outside of Colorado, or volunteering, she enjoys relaxing at home with her two cats, Gus and Joey.

Heather has always had a true creativity and passion for optimal health. She is living her dream of running her own business, setting her schedule and creating financial freedom. The best part is she gets to enjoy the daily milestones of her son’s life. In 2012, Heather created Fit and Vibrant, a website devoted to health and fitness. She hopes to engage mothers, adults and children to live a life of wealth, health, passion and purpose.
SexyFit Coach + Nutritional Counselor
The best part of joining Live Well International so far has to do with my mom. When I first started coaching my mom, we were dealing closely with her Metabolic Disease (pre-diabetes), and her Hashimoto’s Disease. Hashimoto’s Disease is an auto-immune disease where the body sees the thyroid as a foreign body, and therefore starts to attack it. 8 months after putting my mom on a carefully planned supplement regimen, low-glycemic and gluten free diet and exercise plan, we reversed BOTH her Metabolic Disease and her Hashimoto’s Disease. I couldn’t have gotten any better encouragement as a sign that my desire to help others live a better life was leading me in the right direction.
Besides being able to help my mom to such an amazing extent, one of my favorite parts of working on the Live Well team is the opportunity to be my own boss. I love working from home and having myself as the ONLY boss I need to report to at the end of the day! I realized I was tired of “trading hours for dollars”, and was ready to move in a direction where I could work hard to earn an amazing living for myself, instead of working hard to earn someone else an amazing living. My favorite quote regarding my career lifestyle is: I’d rather work 24 hours a day for myself, than 1 hour a day for someone else.”

Health Coach + Writer
Before joining Live Well International, I was struggling to figure out how I would make ends meet as a health coach. I counseled others about the importance of life balance, but I wasn’t walking the talk! Working in a bar most nights to pay the bills, and living on 1-4 hours of sleep, I knew I had to take control of my financial and business destiny NOW.
Choosing to work with Live Well is the easiest and best career decision I’ve ever made. After getting to know founder Carmen Marshall through a “Life Coaching for the Self-Employed” teleclass sponsored by the Handel Group, I remembered an age-old saying: “Only take advice from those who have what you want.” I knew in that moment that I had to align myself and my clients with Live Well.
Live Well’s health and wellness programs are the most effective (and fun) I’ve ever experienced; the products that Live Well recommends and uses in its programs are of the very highest quality. With Live Well, I’m changing lives, and I know that I am on the right path to making my dream life and career a reality.”

Certified Teacher/Body Worker + Health Coach
Before I joined Live Well International, I worked in my own practice and gave some lessons, but I was struggling with the feeling, “I can do more than this!” I wanted to reach more people and help them improve their health, but didn’t know how.
Now that I am a Live Well Partner and a Coach for the SexyFit Nutrition Challenge, I have the greatest tools in my hands to reach and help more people! What I love best is that Live Well gives me the opportunity to use these tools – and build this business – in my own way.
In addition to offering the SexyFit online nutrition program to my clients, I love giving Wellness & Spa seminars so I can personally teach both adults and teenagers how to enhance their health and their lives, feel happier, and look radiant!
I love doing this and I live the life I teach! Everybody has the right to learn what I have learned and to feel this way!
I began working as a Live Well Partner in April 2013 and, within weeks, I had a group of very enthusiastic customers. I’m so happy when they reach their goals! Thank you,Carmen, for letting me be a part of this beautifull Live Well Team in Belgium.
My life has changed in so many beautiful ways.”

Licensed Acupuncturist, Health & Wealth Coach
Before partnering with Live Well International, my husband, Javram, and I worked for ourselves, but we felt like our businesses owned us! Besides not making enough money, we were only getting paid hourly for direct services. This meant we couldn’t take any time away from our businesses if we still wanted money to come in the door.
We started studying different business models and searching for a lifestyle business that allowed us to live healthier, happier lives while still making plenty of money and allowing us to take some much needed time off. Then we met Carmen! Her radiant health, joy of life, and business savvy stole our hearts and we instantly knew we were in good hands.
Now, we have a successful health and mentoring business that allowed us to take off 8 months, collectively, last year to have our beautiful, healthy, baby girl.
Every day we count our blessings to have found Carmen and Live Well International. We feel fulfilled in the work we are doing in the world, and we are especially lucky to be able to spend so much time together as a family without having to worry about our expenses.”

Pilates Instructor + Water Fitness Business Owner
A friend of mine convinced me to look into Live Well International and seriously consider all the possibilities it offered as an already business owner. I knew I wasn’t making the income that I wanted to enjoy golf, tennis and traveling with my husband on a regular basis, so I decided to take a closer look at the opportunity presented to me. I am grateful that someone took the time and cared enough to show me that I can achieve the dreams of financial freedom but most of all how to continue a healthy lifestyle that is not taken for granted.”
Judy started a career over 30 years ago as a dancer and children’s ballet instructor. That career evolved into Rehabilitation and Fitness after she developed breast cancer at an early age. She met a mentor in Princeton, NJ who certified her in counseling and rehabilitation in the water for young women who had mastectomies.
While raising her 3 boys, she worked in the corporate world as VP of Marketing for a start up Health Foods Company which she helped build into a million dollar business. Weary of all the traveling that was involved, especially being away from her family, and driven by her own deep passion for health and fitness, Judy became a certified Pilates Instructor and founded her own Water Fitness business to educate as many people as possible on improving their focus and their lifestyle.
To compliment her own fitness business, she joined Live Well International as a certified Fitness & Wellness Coach which has enabled her to help clients all over the world achieve the health, wellness and freedom to a better life.
Yoga and Water Fitness Instructor
Health and Wellness Coach
I’ve always been in love with sports! After getting married and having my two beautiful children, I fell away from sports for awhile. Of course this caused me to gain weight and feel lethargic, and I wasn’t always reaching for healthy food either. Things took a turn for the best when my sister introduced me to Live Well! I immediately saw the benefits — Live Well’s natural, holistic and cellular approach to great nutrition kicked started the new me! My face cleared up, my weight came off – 40lbs; it has stayed off and my energy is fabulous!
My personal success was so exciting that I joined Live Well so I could help others to do the same. My love and skills for helping others in my professional life as a surgical nurse technician and director of the MS Society were quickly transferred into the health and wellness arena. I love motivating and teaching my clients how they can change their life by taking charge of their health now, so that they will live a long and energized life! Even more exciting is when clients experience the same great changes and want to learn how they can start sharing Live Well with their friends and family!”

Kate Dykema McElvaine
Women’s Health Specialist
Twenty five years ago, I launched a private practice to pursue my passion for helping women with their health care before, during and after pregnancy. I’ve delivered over 2,000 babies in in that time, gained a wealth of experience in healthcare, and built many wonderful relationships.
Several years ago, however, the demands of this hectic lifestyle threw my life out of balance. Changes in the health care system were making it tougher for me to deliver quality care and sustain an acceptable income. So, I worked harder. I wanted to spend more time with my growing daughters, but couldn’t. I wanted to eat better and exercise regularly, but didn’t. I really wanted to get a good night’s sleep. At the same time, my clients were asking me what they needed to do to feel better, lose weight, and live a more balanced life. I realized I needed to answer these questions for myself before I could guide anyone else.
My life changed forever in a dance class. I took the class to improve my balance; I never expected it would transform my health and my livelihood. My teacher, Carmen, took an interest in me and my goals, and she asked me two important questions: Are you happy in your health and your work? Are you making your dreams come true? My answer to both of those questions was, sadly, NO. That was my wakeup call. I opened myself up to a whole new way of approaching health and business. I learned that true health is a prerequisite to total prosperity, and I discovered that by working smarter, not harder, it is possible to deliver topnotch care while earning a solid income.
Teaming up with Carmen Marshall and Live Well International has been the most rewarding experience of my lifetime. I now offer people health and wellness programs that work. I’m able to provide others with the opportunity for success and work right alongside them. And I’ve created optimal health for my family and unlimited prosperity for their future. I know in my heart that these things are attainable for you, too.”

Certified Teacher/Body Worker + Health Coach
When I met Carmen Marshall and was introduced to Live Well International, I was still struggling with “ease.” I had created a wonderful and fulfilling job, and I loved my life for the most part, but a part of me still struggled with taking care of my physical wellbeing. I knew how to eat and exercise, but these were still the hardest pieces for me to balance. I kept swinging from eating healthily and exercising for a while to periods of lying on the couch, eating potato chips and watching movies on TV. Of course, I felt guilty and unhappy every time I lapsed into my unhealthy behavior.
Working with Carmen and Live Well helped me understanding my cravings, energy swings, and what I was missing both physically and emotionally. Thanks to the Live Well program, I now understand how to authentically balance my life and to help others do it, too.
As an herbalist, I’ve always understood the importance of well-balanced nutritionals to supplement a healthy diet. Before I met Carmen, I had spent over a year searching for a company with effective wellness systems, business training, and scientific and holistic knowledge. I dreamed of finding a partner that also offered top of the line nutritional supplements, teamwork, heart and integrity. I found all that and MORE in Live Well!
I feel happier in every part of my life now, as a wife, mother, therapist, coach and friend. I am now part of a “dream team.” Live Well is the tribe I have been looking for – a team of professionals that support each other and share their knowledge to create a better world.
Partnering with Live Well has been great for my personal life, but also my BUSINESS life – and what can be better than optimal health in both areas?”
Kathleen Zwakhoven is a professional 4Dimensional bodyworker and a Life Coach. She has a degree in Communication Sciences, is a certified Herbalist and teacher in several Eastern and Western bodywork disciplines. She has her own practice and training center in Belgium.
Kathleen uses a holistic approach in both her coaching and bodywork sessions. She loves to help her clients find answers to the deeper questions: Who are you behind your ‘problem’? How can you stop sabotaging your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health? How do you nourish yourself, with food, thought patterns, emotions, beliefs? Kathleen believes that every body CAN be healthy, happy, vibrant and successful. YOU are not an exception.
“Once you find the place in your body, the ‘why and ‘where’ you left your self behind, I know we can get you back on track to self-healing and self-caring. Whether your initial question was a spiritual one or about weight-loss, your shoulder pain, your cravings, your money or your relationships… every question or problem is merely a key to unlock your deeper purpose in life, your key to LIVE WELL.”
Health & Wellness Coach
As I worked with more and more clients in my biofeedback practice, it became clear to me that most of them were deficient in essential vitamin and minerals. At first I recommended they purchase supplements at Whole Foods or Vitamin Cottage. It didn’t take long to see that those supplements did little for people.
I found Live Well and our wonderful product partner in 2004 and incorporated them both into my business. Together, they offered me the ideal combination of lifestyle education and nutritional products to meet my clients’ (and my family’s) needs. As everyone’s health improved, so did my income! In fact, within 3 months of promoting the SexyFit Nutrition program, my income tripled.
By this time next year I expect my Live Well income to be greater than all other aspects of my business combined. I am so excited about where I am going with Live Well — the training, inspiration and programs are invaluable. “

Certified Health Coach + RYT200 Yoga instructor
I have been in love with all things Health and Nutrition as long as I can remember. For most of my youth and school career my path was towards Doctor, but what I discovered after working in hospitals and treatment centers was that there was no Health and no Nutrition. I was tired and drained and surrounded by illness.
After all of my children were in school full time I switched lanes to become a yoga teacher and Holistic Health Coach which helped me find my Happy Place, but I knew I still needed to create residual income to live the life I love – a life that includes time with my family and the freedom to travel and experience this amazing world.
Joining Carmen and Livewell has brought me full circle – I now help others achieve the highest version of Health and Wellness while creating abundance. There truly is no limit to Creating the Life You Love.”

Certified Personal Trainer
I had an “aha!” moment the other day, one that could not have happened without learning so many life lessons through Live Well: I desire to surround myself with positive, motivated people who love life and want to live it—and who freely offer the gifts they’ve been given with those who aspire for the same.
Being associated with Live Well and the top notch companies that bolster our business has made me better at almost everything! My clients get more from me as a trainer, and my family benefits, too, when Mom stays positive! What have I learned? To be a better listener, to have goals, to push myself now and then, to surround myself with people I admire, to be grateful, and to open my eyes to all the blessings I’ve been given. There are many avenues a person could choose for any one of the benefits I’ve listed, but it’s rare to find a source that provides improved relationships, health and wealth—all 3!

Body-Mind-Spirit Lifestyle Coach
Before joining Live Well International, I was looking for a way to earn income that would align with my deepest values: to improve others’ health and lives; to enable myself and others to have the freedom to pursue our passions and life purpose; and to create the flexibility I needed to enjoy and spend time with my family.
As if it were meant to be, I found and participated in the SexyFit Nutrition Challenge. I was looking for a program to curb my sugar cravings and lose weight, and that is what I experienced. The Challenge resonated deeply because it worked for me, but also because Carmen included each aspect of Body, Mind and Spirit.
After completing the Challenge, I made the easy decision to become a SexyFit Coach. As I got organized, trained and plugged into the personal development side of Live Well, I soon realized that Live Well and the SexyFit Nutrition Challenge were much, much more than just a healthy eating program. Carmen Marshall and Live Well were the answer to things I deeply desired in my life (and a few thing I didn’t even realize I desired!)
With Live Well, I was blessed to find an income solution with a high quality company, powerful systems that have allowed me to act quickly, and a strong and supportive team. Today, I am extremely grateful to be a part of this tribe of energetic and compassionate entrepreneurs. My partnership with Live Well allows me the freedom and flexibility to be of even greater service to others as a life coach, while living the healthy and balanced life of my dreams.”
Act One for Michelle began in the corporate world. After earning her Bachelor and Master of Science in Accounting, Michelle enjoyed a busy career at Arthur Andersen, LLP, where she gained experience and discipline serving a wide array of corporate clients.
Act Two was motherhood. Michelle retired from her career-focused life and learned what “busy” really meant as a stay-at-home mother of two and active community volunteer.
Act Three began with a wake up call from her body. In 2009, Michelle was diagnosed with a chronic thyroid condition: Grave’s Disease (or hyperthyroidism). She endured heart palpitations, arrhythmia, anxiety, and hair loss more more than a year before finding the right treatment (and remission) through a combination of western and eastern healing modalities.
It was this journey that led Michelle to make big changes in her life. She slowed down and dropped all activities that weren’t in alignment with her heart. She asked herself, “What am I missing,” and “What would life look like if I were pursuing my heart’s desires?” With new-found time to explore the answers to these questions, she found the answers — peace inside herself, purpose and meaning in life, true heart-felt assistance to others, more calm and love for her husband and children. It all added up to a desire for a balanced and healthy life.
With this new direction in mind, Michelle enrolled and recently completed the first year of her Master of Arts in Spiritual Psychology. She also discovered Live Well International and the SexyFit Nutrition Challenge, and hasn’t looked back since! As a proud SexyFit Coach and believer in the resilience of the human body and spirit, Michelle loves helping others find their own life’s joy, aliveness and health!
Michelle lives in Englewood, Colorado with her husband, two children and one fuzzy four-legged friend.
Partnering with LiveWell made my dream to thrive while creating a life I love a reality. This was not an opportunity I could manage on my own.

Holistic Health Counselor + Pilates instructor
Before joining Live Well, I worked in the non-profit sector, but at the age of 31 I had reached my goals and peaked in my position and income range. There was no viable career path for me, unless I changed organizations and applied for a VP position. This wasn’t appealing because it meant more time away from my family and less job satisfaction as I would no longer be “in the field” working with donors and prospect, something that I loved doing.
I have an entrepreneurial spirit and with my dance and Pilates background, I knew my heart was pulling me in a different direction. I wasn’t totally sure what I was looking for, so google searched words that were authentic to me; time freedom, unlimited income potential and, of course, health and wellness. I came across Carmen and Live Well and enrolled within a week of discovering this amazing group of professionals.
A year and a half later, my residual income is high enough to allow me to work part time at my current job while I continue to build my thriving health/wellness business. My husband and I plan to move to Central America in 12-18 months to work, play and live life – as it should be! None of this would be possible if Live Well hadn’t come into my life. Thank you Carmen + Live Well!”

Nutrition Coach and Metabolic Specialist
Live Well International and Carmen Marshall have been such a blessing for me, my family, and my business! I attribute much of my personal weight loss success to being on such great products and learning the key concepts of anti-inflammatory eating to Carmen and her SexyFit Nutrition Challenge. I had my whole family do her 30 Day Challenge, and they did awesome! My dad lost 18 lbs, my fiancé at the time lost 21 lbs, my mom lost 11 lbs, and my brother lost 7lbs. Along with the significant weight loss, they also saw dramatic improvement in their blood work numbers, which made me even happier. Knowing my whole family is healthy is the most important thing to me!
As a busy personal trainer and entrepreneur starting my own Metabolism Testing business, I used to feel frustrated a lot of the time. First, I was so busy with clients and office work that I didn’t have the time to develop a structured online nutrition plan for my clients. I know that nutrition is 80% of the results, so I wanted my clients to do what I had done, which was to be on the best of the best products and learn the key concepts of losing weight the right way. Second, because my income was dependent on my clients making appointments with me, it tended to be quite inconsistent from month to month.
Live Well and the SexyFit Nutrition Challenge gave me the answer I was looking for! Being a SexyFit Nutrition Coach, I can now plug my clients into an amazing, proven program that I know works, while teaching them all they need to know for long term health and success. What’s more, the residual income I earn from being a coach and a member of Team Live Well has given me a financial foundation I know I can rely on!”

Homemaker & Certified Pilates Instructor
Joining Live Well was my own “a-ha” moment. It was the piece of the puzzle I’d been missing and fit perfectly with my background, passions and skill set. Since joining Live Well, I’ve enrolled with the Institute for Integrative Nutrition out of NYC to become a Board Certified Holistic Health Counselor. My husband Jamie, has now retired and we’ve been able to move back to northern California where we live with our three four-legged children, Sparky, Rocky and Shasta.
Suzette is a native Californian and grew up in northern California, near the heart of the wine country. She got married and had children in her early 20’s and soon found herself in the role of “taxi mom” to two active children, and a corporate wife to a husband, who was rapidly advancing in his career, and moving them all over the country. That left little time for her to focus on a career of her own.
The last 11 years were spent in the metro area of Denver, Colorado and in between gymnastics, cheerleading practice, soccer and ice hockey, she filled her time creating workouts for she and her husband to do in their home gym and cooking healthy meals and even creating some of her own recipes. With a family history of heart disease, ADD, and weight related issues, not to mention a personal diagnosis of osteopenia, this was especially important to her.
Fast forward to 2009, with her youngest just one year away from graduating high school and leaving for college, she decided to take her passion for fitness and good health outside the home. She started working at a local health club and explored her options for sharing her passions. After suffering from activity related injuries and turning to Pilates for therapy, she found her fit. She became a Certified Pilates Instructor in 2011 and taught mat, reformer, chair and tower in both class and private settings. She especially enjoyed teaching to beginners and sharing with them their “a-ha” moments.

Online Marketing Goddess
Prior to joining Live Well International and CarmenMarshall.com, I struggled to put together a career that allowed her to stay at home with my kids and create time and financial freedom.

Teresa & Bill Flecky
Real Estate + Fitness Business Owner and Corporate Executive & CEO
Our Success Story
We did what our parents told us to do; go to college, get a good job, work hard, retire. Both of us were employed right out of college, working full time…eating, sleeping, getting ready for work, working, eating, sleeping, getting ready for work…you get the picture. Bill working his way up the ladder to CEO; Teresa eventually putting aside her career as a Audiologist & Speech Pathologist to become a MOMpreneur (stay-at-home MOM)!
Things were going great until we hit some bumps in the road. What were we to do?! We decided to start our own medical device business. To make a long story short, we gave the time, we gave the money, we lost our time, we lost our money. Back on track; Bill as CEO, Teresa into Real Estate, teaching fitness & wellness classes (her passion) and raising 2 Division 1 Athletes (daughters!!)
We were too busy to even consider anything else…so it took 7 invitations before we decided to look at what Live Well had to offer. And we are SO grateful we took the time to really look at Live Well – it changed EVERYTHING for us. We have always been interested in creating an abundant & healthy life for our family on our own terms and in Live Well, we found just that. We found a business that could create a passive, recurring income stream, with systems, training, products, mentors and team members that we love. It had wellness systems in place so we didn’t have to create them on our own. It had business and leadership training so we didn’t have to go elsewhere. And best of all, we could build a business that we loved doing, while creating financial stability, LIVING health and helping others do the exactly the same.”
Teresa has always had a passion for helping others with their health & fitness. It began with her love of competing in swimming & diving, followed by teaching aspiring athletes. As an Audiologist & Speech Pathologist, she continued to help others achieve success. As a mother of two daughters, she & her husband, Bill, were determined for Teresa to become a MOMpreneur (Stay-at-Home Mom!) Combining the best of both worlds, Teresa founded a fitness business to help men, women & children with their health & wellness.
Joining Live Well International as a certified Wellness Coach, has enabled her to share, educate & simplify health for many people across the globe. She is also certified as a Health Coach and as a Group Fitness Instructor where she is passionate about helping others live life to their fullest in happiness & health.

Partnering with Live Well has opened a whole new world of possibilities for me as a professional in the health & wellness industry. Over the past decade I’ve been able to offer more value to my patients & clients through Live Well’s life-changing programs while increasing my business. I now have total control of my schedule, I work when I want to work and play when I want to play.
It’s an uplifting feeling to be involved in this amazing community of wellness professionals that are serving others while living their passion. On top of everything, partnering with Live Well has helped me develop my financial future so that I can do what I love every day.”
Tina Siegrist is a Para-Medical Esthetician, and has worked in the dermatology industry for nearly a decade. Tina realized early on that she could only do so much topically to help others with their skin care needs. Her education and experience taught her that it takes more than just a great skin care regime to look and feel our best. Tina began her health & wellness journey by studying and integrating holistic health methods into her practice. She started teaching her clients to look at the whole picture – from what we eat, to what we feed our cells AND to what we put on our skin.
After realizing her income potential was capped because she could only see so many patients each day, charge so much and work so many hours, Tina decided to make a change. Entrepreneurial, driven and with a strong desire to help others, she decided to not just treat skin, but treat the whole picture and become a health & wellness coach. Tina was introduced to Live Well International & realized immediately that this is what I was looking for. She teaches & inspires people to achieve passion, purpose and balance in their lives while helping them become beautiful inside & out.
Tina is married to the love of her life and has 2 beautiful children. The family travels all over the world and enjoys learning about other cultures and lifestyles.
In addition, the entire family has taken on a lifestyle of health and are often featured in Live Well’s Online Nutrition Challenge as real life examples of a longterm healthy lifestyle change.
