What if there was an easier way to create what you want in life and work?
Here's what we've been told: Set a SMART goal. Break it into milestones. Track your progress. Create supportive habits.
Doesn't feel very inspiring, does it?
We start our “new year” with ambitious goals in January, but abandon them before the month is out.
Turns out, it’s not your fault. Starting projects in January sets you up for a struggle! It's all about the energy.
Align with the Wheel of the Year
Did you know the year is like a wheel?
We don't think of the year like this anymore, but it makes sense:
Our ancestors knew this cycle intimately. For most of our 200,000 years on earth, humans lived in tune with these seasonal influences.
Now we like to live exactly the same, year-round. (Except maybe for Pumpkin Spice Latte season!)
But once you realize these seasonal influences are still happening (despite our efforts to ignore them), it seems crazy that we try to set goals and launch new projects in the middle of winter!
When you tap into seasonal energy,
your life and work flow with ease.
Spring is the time for fresh starts and new projects,
and it's happening now!
Alchemy & Action: Spring Edition is my NEW Program with Rituals, Remedies and Aligned Action to Ignite your Life and Work.
In this brand new 4-week online experience, I’ll lead you through rituals, exercises, reflections and aligned action to turn your dreams & plans into reality.
No matter what you want to create in your life and work - these four weeks will launch you on your way.
We'll flow with the growth-oriented energy of Spring, amplifying everything you want to create, while nourishing your mind and body, sparking your curiosity and creativity, and deeply connecting with the season.
(Feels more exciting than setting another SMART goal, right?)
Inspirational, Beautiful and Magical!

Blending the Practical & Creative Play!
"I use the perfume blend I made at Amanda's workshop every day to remind me of my intention to feel more peace of mind. I love how Amanda blends the practical (setting intentions) with creative play, and that I ended up with an oil I can use everyday to keep myself on track! I'm going back for another workshop because I find the topic, and Amanda, so interesting and inspiring!"

"I absolutely adore Amanda's work; her passion for old wisdom, her wonderful recipes, her quirky interests and her great sense of humor! And all of it is accomplished with a great deal of intellect and insight. I often wish I could live at her house and have her pamper me with all her goodness, but, for now, I'm contented with having her as a mentor and inspiration. Thank you Amanda! Keep up with the awesomeness!"

I'm an alchemist who helps women transform meaningful work into personal freedom.
Hi, I'm Amanda Cook. Over the past 7 years, I’ve helped thousands of health coaches, nutritional therapists, yoga teachers, personal trainers, acupuncturists, herbalists and other holistic practitioners grow their wellness businesses using online marketing.
You may know me as the host of The Wellpreneur Podcast, where I’ve interviewed over 150 successful wellpreneurs about what it really takes to have a successful wellness business today.
I’m also the author of the bestselling book Wellpreneur, and its companion, The Wellpreneur Planner.
But you might not know that I’m also a health coach and herbalist. I’ve studied reiki and traditional Thai herbal medicine. I use EFT tapping and tarot cards, daily. I ferment sauerkraut and forage for local weeds to make into plant medicines. I’ve created a location-independent business that combines my loves of entrepreneurship, personal growth, travel and wellness.
In my work, I weave both the alchemy (rituals, remedies, ancestors, plants) and action (business skills, marketing, tech) into a recipe for meaningful work and personal freedom.
"I had HUGE fun foraging and making natural beauty products with Amanda. Connecting to the seasons and nature is one of the keys to grow myself and my business in an organic and wholistic way."
- Mariko Lavender-Jones
