Fitness/wellness professionals and active-aging organizations that recognize this opportunity will capitalize and grow their business. So what’s a wellness Sherpa? Well, first I want to ask you a couple of questions before we get started, so that I know my audience. How many of you work for or own a fitness center of some sort? Retirement communities? Assisted Living? Am I missing anything? How many of you have seen me speak before? And you came back? Alright, let’s get started!

The term Sherpa is used to refer to local people, native to the Himalayas, who are employed by climbers as guides for adventures high in the mountains. These guides are elite mountaineers and experts in navigating their local terrain. Climbing Mount Everest without a Sherpa is a dangerous venture. Without the Sherpa’s knowledge and experience, most travelers would be lost at these high altitudes. How is this possible? After all, climbing is as simple as putting one foot in front of the other and heading straight up, right? TR Mann Consulting * www.TRMann.com
