Alissa Cohen Teachers!
Hi everyone, exciting news! Alissa just added another 5 day training (starting July 20th) to her roster.
We are going to have to cut the May one off within the next week. There are still so many people wanting to come that she had to add more dates. The one in September is already half full. She is trying to keep the classes from getting to large as the individual attention is so important to her. We are cutting this one off at 30.
This email below is from Schall, one of our teachers. This was posted on the raw teacher forum board but I thought you all may want to read it and get inspired. Schall quite her job a couple of weeks after coming to Alissa¬ís training in January. She made thousands of dollars the first weekend after the training doing 2 classes!
I know it has been a while since I posted, but as most of you know I have been, well, VERY BUSY!!! Just to give you an idea about the magnitude of our calling....
I have now certified about 40 people, and I have 31 others registered for classes over the next 6 weeks - 13 of them for both levels. Nevada home magazine contacted me and did an interview with a photo lay-out of a raw dessert, the Reno Gazette journal called me yesterday and interviewed me over the phone, cookingevents.com contacted Janine after her tradeshow and we are booked to do 4 demonstrations at the event - they even comped us a booth! We are also going to Portland where we will do 3 food demos at three different Wild Oats - speaking of Wild Oats, the one in Reno asked me to do a food demo at their booth at The Nevada Women's Expo last week - my raw food demo attracted twice as many people as the other demos did! Two rows of standing room only behind the seated guests!
5 of my students have their first level 1 scheduled, 2 of them already ordered their websites!
I have many teachers calling me and also students who are registered for Alissa's teacher certifications wanting to know how I am doing what I am doing. I think the most important part is to understand the need. THERE ARE THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE OUT THERE WHO NEED US TO SHOW THEM HOW TO MAKE THE FOOD. I say it over and over! If you understand that people NEED us, it takes away the fear - you aren't pushing anything on anyone. You know what 3 words I hear EVERYDAY?
"I'm so excited!" yes - I do not exaggerate when I say that I hear those words everyday! Everyone I talk to about the classes says it. How's THAT for a job! They so desperately want to know how to make raw food. WE can teach them.
Please see the truth in this - if you do not help them - who will? I would love to teach them all! but the truth is there are too many people who want and need what we can teach - YOU ARE NEEDED! I just can't stress it enough - YOU ARE NEEDED! Please be available to them - the world needs raw food.
Love to all,
"Life is GREAT! Grow with it!"
Call me at 978-985-7217 if you have any questions or want to register.
This sounds GREAT!
Is the May class full Carmel?
I'm not anywhere where I need to be in my raw journey (I haven't lost my weight yet - I'm 4'11" and 160, I've only lost 12 lbs so far). I am toying with the idea of taking the classes but I feel that I'm not at the point where people will take me seriously? Please share your thoughts.

Yes, I believe people WILL take you seriously! For one, you lost 12 pounds...it's not only 12 lbs. but you lost 12 lbs. That's great and it can be an inspiration to someone!

You have a story to tell and things to share and you will come back equipped to help people learn how to go raw, make the food, and live this lifestyle!
Not to sound offensive to anyone in anyway...but how many people religiously follow what their doctors and nutritionists say about health REGARDLESS of how that professional looks? Think about it. People listen to them and trust them because the feel they know what they are talking about. You will know what you are talking about and that is what will draw people...that and your enthusiasm about this lifestyle of eating raw foods...your passion!
I think the training will be just what you need to personally get to where you want to be in your raw journey and you will also be able to help others get to where they want to be as well!
Go for it! It will change your life!
I will be taking the classes in May. What equipment should I start buying
in order to truly set up MY class for June? (I am so excited!!!)
I have a dehydrator and a food processor but do not have a juicer or a
Vita Mix. Are these essential if I will be TEACHING the class?
I hope to QUIT a 20 year nursing career and do this full time!!!

Hi Becky and congrats on your decision to take the class!
A juicer is not necessary! A blender is necessary...not necessarily a Vita Mix...I did my first 3 classes with a Hamilton Beach blender as I just recently got a Vitamix when my husband bought it for me.
So, you have the dehydrator, food processor...get a blender and maybe a CITRUS juicer (electric ones are great) and/or a reamer (like what Alissa has in the DVD juicing lemons with) and you're all set!
Hi rawdelight. The May class has only a couple of seats left and then it will be cut off so if you are thinking of going, don't hesitate too long!.
Elian, a part of Alissa's class actually covers the exact concern you expressed in your post! You will find the students in Alissa's class very diverse and very openminded. There are people who have just started raw all the way up the spectrum. Going to her class has really helped a lot of people have a life transformation and propelled them into a deep rooted raw food lifestyle. So don't hold yourself back for false expectations. :)
Becky, Alissa looks forward to meeting you! Rawkinlocs gave you some great answers and it sounds like you are almost all set to go! Yeah, how exciting!
How I wish I could take the class. Maybe one day...
