about this course

Are you a helper, a giver, or someone who works in a helping field?

Do you find yourself saying "yes" when you really mean "no"?

Do you tend to over commit and have no time left over to take care of yourself and do the things you love?

People like us have big hearts. We care, and sometimes this leads us to sacrifice for others, allow them to depend on us and forget that we matter, too.


This course is for the helpers and givers who want to develop the confidence say "NO" when it's time to honor themselves. Who want to help uplift others in a way that is supportive, not rescuing or creating dependency. To give from a healthy place of confidence and empowerment, rather than out of obligation or guilt.

All of our online courses are completely virtual! They consist of video instruction, with instructors Joeel and Natalie Rivera, as well as downloadable and printable PDF handouts and activities. Our courses are highly interactive and fun! Complete this program from anywhere in the world and at your own pace (and even in your pajamas if you want to!).

We're going to teach you the tools and the mindset to empower yourself AND others. We know how hard it can be to put yourself first. We're both the classic "helper" type--we just want so badly to make other people's lives better! But, we've also learned that when we are not taking care of ourselves, things get out of balance, leading us to become burnt out, unwell, and unable to contribute to those we love.

We're going to teach you everything we've learned in our own journeys, our decade of experience in psychology, as well as what we've learned through working with thousands of other "helpers"--whether life coaches we've trained or individuals we've coached and met through our workshops.

This course will leave you feeling confident and empowered, with an inspiring vision of your new empowered life and concrete goals to get you there. Plus we know you'll enjoy the course! Join our nearly 25,000 happy students in 163 countries.

Joeel and Natalie Rivera

We are Joeel and Natalie Rivera—your soon-to-be coach trainers! (Yes, we’re married AND work together… 24 hours a day… and we LOVE IT!) Below we’ll tell you our story, briefly… the REAL story. The one that wasn’t always easy but that lead us PERFECTLY to this place of living out our life’s purpose and creating the thriving business (and the FREEDOM that comes with it) that we always wanted! 

We seek to ignite a revolution of personal freedom through entrepreneurship, empowering each individual to reach their potential and fulfill their life’s purpose.

 We are freedom junkies and serial entrepreneurs who empower INDIEpreneurs to create a purpose-driven business and fulfill their life’s purpose. We specialize in teaching people how to use their gifts to make money teaching what they know and love through life coaching and online courses. Joeel has a Master’s Degree in Counseling and Education and is currently completing his dissertation for his Ph.D. in Psychology, with an emphasis on happiness. 


In 2014, when we converted our print magazine into digital format, we found we could reach an exponential, worldwide market at a fraction of the time and cost. This inspire us to officially become INFOpreneurs. Then, in 2016 we received a proverbial “kick in the pants” to go “all-in” when Joeel fell ill after traveling overseas. Unable to leave the house, they continued to teach and empower others by turning their in-person workshops, speeches and coach training programs into online courses.
