Becoming a LighterLife Mentor

Hear what one of LighterLife's current Mentors Vicky has to say about her business:

LighterLife | Vicky Keeley“I used to have a clothes shop, but that meant working six days a week. During this time I had lost 4st on the Total Plan and I became so passionate about LighterLife that I decided I wanted to train as an Xpress Mentor. I wanted to help others achieve what the same level of success that I had as well as finding a better work life balance. I haven’t looked back since.

As a Mentor I’m a self-employed franchisee running my own LighterLife business which enables me to choose the hours I work and how I structure my week.

I run two Xpress meetings a week (I’m going to start a third) supporting over 40 clients and earning approximately £500 a week. The role is very flexible and no two days are the same. There’s some admin involved but most of the time I’m managing enquiries, out doing my marketing, spreading the word and of course running Xpress meetings and supporting my clients. The marketing tools on offer are great, a lot of which you are given as part of your starter kit.”

The training LighterLife provides includes:

  • Marketing and sales
  • Business planning
  • Physiology of weight loss
  • CBT Mindfulness Hot Topics

“It’s the Mindfulness work that makes Xpress so different and enables me to support my clients through a tried and tested journey, so they can be the best they can be, and so can I. I never imagined running my own business would be so rewarding, both financially and emotionally. I have my own business advisor and the support from central office helps me be confident in what I am doing. My advice to anyone thinking of joining is, ‘do it’ you’ll never look back.

It’s the success of my clients that really motivates me to get out there, the more people I talk to the more people I can help. It’s true what they say, if you find a job you love you’ll never have to work a day in your life!

Xpress enables me to have a good life both emotionally and financially, doing something I absolutely love and at the same time have the flexibility to fit the role around being a wife, mother and daughter. I love making memories on holidays with the family and thanks to LighterLife I’m able to enjoy these at least twice a year.”

What Our Franchisees Say

The ability to work around family life and set my own hours was what attracted me initially, and it’s still the case today. I put in the same hours as my previous role but am able to choose where and when I do them which gives me the freedom I need. What’s more, I have always really enjoyed working with people and supporting them to achieve their goals and my franchise really allows me to do this.Helen Bowling, LighterLife Franchisee since 2011

My LighterLife business allows me to do a job I love around my family commitments. I've helped over 300 clients lose more than 2,000kg.Lesley Turner, LighterLife Franchisee since 2017
