Lesley Turner explains why life as a Mentor is so fulfilling – and such a great opportunity.
I lost 4st in four months with LighterLife in 2011 and have maintained my weight since then. I really enjoyed being a LighterLife client. The weight came off quickly and easily, and the meetings gave me the chance to look at my behaviour and beliefs around food.
I was so impressed with the way the diet and meetings were part of each other that I decided to train with LighterLife.
The LighterLife Programme changes people’s lives, and to be able to help someone to get to a place where they are feeling great is an incredible privilege.
“If you love what you do, you’ll never have to do a day’s work again!” is exactly how I feel.
This is so much more than just a job.
I get full support from the LighterLife team and being part of the LighterLife family means that, although it’s my business, I don’t feel that I’m ‘going it alone’.
The best part of being a LighterLife Mentor is that it gives me so much freedom. I can choose the hours I work to fit in with my life – I spend about 20 hours a week on my business and I earn good money.
I run my Xpress groups on two mornings and two evenings a week. I spend the rest of my time telling people about LighterLife Xpress. LighterLife has a marketing department to help me plan what I do.
What would I say to anyone thinking of becoming a Mentor?
Well, if you’re interested in working with people and helping them, this is a fantastic opportunity for you. To be part of an amazing company and to be part of the obesity solution that so many are seeking is an incredible privilege and very exciting. So many people struggle with their weight, and being there to listen to them, to understand and offer help is so often the lifeline they need.
