    Hi Michael, I live in Bergen County, I am a registered nurse and certified health coach as well. I stumbled upon your video and loved your mission and passion, as I have the same one. I am wondering if we can connect and have a conversation about how I can start a business like you did. I’d love an opportunity to talk about it and hear how you created your business. I hope to hear from you soon!
    Be well,
    Laurie aka Feliciannurse
