Hi, I'm Gregory Anne, but please, call me Greg.
And yes, that’s my real name.
About me, hmmm. What’s most important for you to know about me as it relates to you?
Here’s one thing.
I’ve never been more aware that life is short. At a little past the midpoint, the things I most want to do have more urgency. This shines a light on my lifestyle habits and choices.
Am I doing enough to keep myself well, to stay flexible both physically and mentally, to stay connected to my inner wisdom and others? If not, I have little hope of swimming with whales, speaking on more stages and living my full expression.
Food is a big part of a wellness plan and I love food, but had a really bad relationship with it for many years. I’m better now.
If you wonder why I named my business Rebellious Wellness, here’s the answer. It is an act of rebellion to stand for your health in this world of Big Food, Big Pharma and Big Medicine. I break the rules — and encourage my clients to do so too — because (many of the) rules are made by people with financial incentives to promote them, or living happily in the comfortable shade of old science despite new findings. The Rebellious approach says there is no one way to be healthy.
My women are smart, busy professionals — some of them speakers — battling flagging energy, the “what works doesn’t seem to do it anymore” debacle, and who know it’s time to do something different — they just don’t know what that is.
They want to look good, feel good, and stay healthy so they can enjoy their work, relationships, play, etc.
Many have resigned themselves to the idea that not feeling up to par is par for the course. BS!
Here are some other things I hear from my peeps. They are questioning who they are, maybe who they’ve become, who they haven’t become, what they haven’t achieved – all of these are symptoms that something wants to change.
Change is always scary, but at midlife we either get bolder or more fearful.
Where are you?
If you do want to change, how do you know whom to trust?
Life Includes Cake!
I would like you to consider trusting me.
I’ve been through the physical, the mental, the spiritual and the woo-woo night of the soul, and lived to tell the story. I’ve invested heavily in myself so I can help others. I’m healthier than I was in my 30’s and 40’s and I’ve broken through fears I never thought I could. Like being on stage and telling my story, selling my shizzle, and connecting with audiences in a way I never thought I would.
