I think it is well and truly time that I updated you all on what I have been doing since my last post.
I have changed directions due to a chance meeting online with a man who has become my mentor, Tony Teegarden. Actually I watched a webinar he did which was hosted by David Risely and he convinced me in it that I could coach what I know to other people online. I have been a teacher on and off all my life in various capacities and so this seemed like not too much of a stretch, but what would I teach online? No, don’t get me wrong – I have lots of skills I could teach, but this was about filling a gap in the market. Other people were already online teaching people how to write novels, how to blog etc. but I couldn’t find anyone who was coaching the low Fodmap diet, which is a diet that has completely sorted my lifelong IBS symptoms and which I blog about on my main blog, www.strandsofmylife.com
For those of you who don’t know, the low Fodmap diet has been scientifically proven to dramatically reduce the symptoms in 75% of irritable bowel sufferers. The problem is that it is a complex diet so many people fail to maintain it and their symptoms return or they never get it right in the first place.
I joined Tony’s 8-week program which gives you every little detail of how to create a high ticket coaching business and, even before the course officially started, just with the pre-course work Tony gave me (which included many Skype calls to refine details), I had a full class and had made more money in one month than I had ever made in my life.
And to cut a long story short, that’s what I am doing now – coaching others with IBS so that they can get the same amazing results that I did with the low Fodmap diet.
I love helping people, which is part of being an INFJ personality, and feel my values have aligned with this work.
I am almost finished my second coaching program and the results have been amazing. Here is what a couple of people have said about the course:
“My life with IBS was a daily struggle just to make it to the next day. Pain, medication, no answers and no hope that I would ever feel like a normal person again…. And then I met Suzanne online, purely by chance. It was one of the best things that could’ve happened. Here is someone who knows…. Someone like us that has been there and lived what we’ve lived. Someone who’s done the research and has the plan to help get your life back.
I cannot stress enough how worth it this course has been and how much hope I now have that my future will be and can be kept pain free.”
- Dawn Carseldine – in her 30s
“The Inspired Life Low Fodmap Coaching program was the solution I have been looking for ever since I was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease. After trying many fad diets that claim they cure digestive inflammation, starting another one was very daunting for me. Suzanne helped me through every step of the diet with endless support. For the first time in my life I am not in pain after every meal and I feel more energized and healthy than ever before! She taught me how to create balanced meal plans that fit my very busy lifestyle, provided me with some amazing recipes, and gave me tips for managing the stress that makes my digestive issues worse.
I used to be afraid to eat so many foods and she showed me that I can have a lot more foods than I ever imagined. After 6 weeks I feel like I have all the weapons I need to tackle my digestive problems for the rest of my life! Suzanne’s knowledge on how to incorporate this diet into your life is invaluable and I couldn’t have done it without her.”

What I can tell you is that this new, independent me is a million miles from the person I was 6 months ago, when I was a stressed out wreck of a person who had daily headaches, RSI and severe neck problems. I work at my own pace, walk along the beach every day and I am going on a Baltic cruise in 3 weeks followed by a road trip through the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg and parts of Germany and France (including Paris). I can do all this while continuing my courses. All I need is a laptop.
