Often, experts are born out of an exceptional commitment to learning anything and everything about a subject. Conventionally, growing expertise is driven by a deeply-held passion about some concept, mechanism, or idea and eventually culminates into an outcome helpful to the broader, less informed population. In many cases, people may not even be aware of the landmark development and the years of work and research that preceded it. The trailblazer continues to live their life while secondary proponents put their ideas into action daily.
But this is not an exclusive path to success, and no individual exemplifies that better than @theplantpowercoach Kerryn Sawyer. Kerryn represents the exact reverse of the journey just outlined, which makes her story so fascinating. It could be possible, maybe even beneficial, to live the reality of one’s ultimate ambitions rather than study it in abstract textbooks. Of course, this may not be the individual’s choice in many cases, and often tumultuous circumstances offer a far from ideal route to market. However, Kerryn has been able to grasp the opportunities presented by life’s obstacles and turn them into unmatched expertise in the fields of health, life management, and weight loss.
At the core of Kerryn’s ethos is the notion of perfect harmony between the different solutions she proposes. For many, the problem with attempting to lose weight lies in the sheer variety of life mechanisms an individual must put in place to attain the physical ability to lose weight. Kerryn understands that reality goes even further and requires a reimagining of one’s mindset to achieve a willingness to change. A qualified Health & Life Coach through the Health Coach Institute and certified in Plant-based Nutrition by eCornell, Kerryn takes a holistic approach because she understands that people’s lives and mentalities are not linear or binary. By acting as a health coach, life coach, and weight loss mentor simultaneously, Kerryn can help clients change their habits and provide them with opportunities to learn more about their behavioral patterns and emotional management.
Presently, the focus of The Plant Power Coach is on its courses, with the six-month ‘Plant Power Transformation’ taking center stage as it aims to change participants’ diet habits for the better. Based on small changes taken on a week-by-week basis, the program is engineered to encourage those taking part to use better behaviors to create success. Traditional diet plans or pharmaceutical options may force rushed shifts in eating habits, but Kerryn identifies that this could be unsustainable for long-term physical and mental wellbeing.
What makes The Plant Power Coach’s approach so reliable is the background behind Kerryn Sawyer, its centerpiece. A lifelong sufferer of body dysmorphia, Kerryn is open about having experienced setbacks due to unhealthy habits. Weight gain in her 20s led to a marriage breakdown in her 30s. But when Kerryn tried to get her body and mind back on track, she found herself over-exercising to compensate for a less than optimal pescatarian diet. These experiences will likely resonate with many of The Plant Power Coach’s prospective clientele and form an integral part of its CEO’s esteemed insight and reputation.
While a myeloma diagnosis in 2017 spurred Kerryn to return to a vegan diet and make her health a priority, it was a conversation with a curious friend that ultimately sparked a complete move into a coaching career. “She asked me for advice on transitioning to a plant-based diet, and that was the exact moment I decided I was going to become a health coach!” Kerryn proclaims. The next day, she enrolled in studies at eCornell and had resigned from her corporate buying role by the end of the week. From there onwards, Kerryn found that many clients who were interested in transitioning to a plant-based diet also had weight loss ambitions in mind. Few other inquiries could have synergized all of Kerryn’s passions and experiences into one, and The Plant Power Coach was born.
The initial COVID lockdowns posed an existential threat to the new venture, but today Kerryn thankfully finds herself with a wealth of prospects drawn in by her extensive understanding of plant-based living and weight loss. The Plant Power Coach is now primed to scale to new heights, build a team, and allow more lives to benefit from its founder’s teachings.
Kerryn Sawyer’s transition to becoming The Plant Power Coach mirrors the challenge of many to attain healthier eating habits. Fraught by uncertainty, hardship, and difficulty at first, but with the right stepping stones, both can enjoy unprecedented prosperity. In every sense, the project’s founder lives and breathes her clients’ aspirations for more sustainable living.
