Western Massachusetts Health Coach | Janice Brisbois

An Interview with Janice Brisbois, Owner of Love Health and Family

What is your name?

 Janice Brisbois

What is your business name? How did you come up with it?  

Love Health and Family, I believe all 3 are intertwined, you have to love yourself which includes your health so you are able to care for your family to your best ability. 

What products/services do you offer?

 As a Health Coach I use a four part Ultimate Health Program that consists of 4 parts Health Coach, Community Support, Education and Simple Structured Nutrition

How would you describe your business?  

I work with clients by helping them achieve their weight loss goals while building lifelong healthy habits.

What were you doing before you started business? And/or what else are you doing now (school/work etc). 

I have always been in Customer service, my last one being store manager at pier 1, which closed during the pandemic. I’ve helped out as a foster mom for a bit. But really wanted to find something that I connected with and was able to work from home and be with my children. I also enjoy volunteer work within my religion.

How do you maintain a work-life balance while running a small business?

I started this to be able to financially help the family and stay at home with my children. So I wake up early and partner with my husband when I need extra time

What strategies or practices have helped you navigate the demands of entrepreneurship?  

I try my best to follow my mentors and the system already in place for me to succeed.

What was the most recent interesting conversation you had?   

I would say my conversations are more on a personal base, clients that have tried every diet out there, suffer from depression not feeling positive about themselves, ones that have for medical reasons put on extra weight and don’t know what to do. I’ve cried with clients talking about not being comfortable in their own skin or even in pictures with their children.

Do you have a favorite sport or exercise routine you enjoy?  

I have always loved dancing, but I do try to add in attainable daily exercise in each morning even if its 5-10 minutes.

What’s your favorite thing about your business? Most rewarding? Most challenging?

 I absolutely love Mondays!! It’s weigh in day and the excitement I get and the nervousness from clients and then the joy when they see the results, it is so rewarding to help my clients. I get to celebrate every Monday with them, I love the behind the scenes conversations, I get to have a part in motivating them to get to the next goal.

What do you do for fun in your down time?

As a family we love hiking, camping and relaxing on the beach. There’s also gardening and diy house projects, I also enjoy taking rides with my husband on our motorcycles. 

What motto/quote do you always try to live by?  

I Won’t Give Up

What advice would you give to aspiring female entrepreneurs who are just starting their own businesses?

I have learned to just say “yes” and sometimes messy is better than nothing!!

What do you want to achieve in the future?

I am really looking forward to leveling up on my own personal health and continue helping as many clients to do the same.
