Our Story and Mission
What do you get when you bring together a 34-year entrepreneur and mental health educator with a knack for transforming lives, and a wellness professional of 22 years who has a passion for designing award-winning workplace wellbeing programs?
You get us: Skip Hudson and Rebecca Weitzel, a duo committed to improving lives one small organization at a time…and having a lot of fun in the process! We first met when Rebecca hired Skip to incorporate stress-management and mindfulness into the wellness program that she was managing for a local non-profit in Grand Junction, Colorado.
We share a passion for helping people tap into their physical and mental potential and witnessing the transformative power of community and connection. It became clear we could do great things together while guiding people and organizations to wellbeing. The workplace provides an excellent opportunity to foster wellbeing but 99% of the businesses in the U.S. are small (less than 500 employees) and they can’t afford expensive wellness programs. We created Good Life Wellness Solutions as a way to bring wellbeing to the masses by offering affordable wellbeing solutions to small organizations.
Why Good Life Wellness Solutions? Because we believe that’s what we’re all striving for – a good life. And when we’re living good lives, we have more physical and emotional energy to devote to our families, workplaces, and communities. When we’re living good lives, we get closer to reaching our potential as human beings. When we’re living good lives, we thrive.
And we believe that’s what makes us different: our devotion to people. Our company is built on the idea that it’s not an app or a website that changes lives, it’s access to real-world connections that makes a difference. Rather than pushing people to engage multiple times per day with our technology, we encourage them to engage with each other. Rather than enticing people to spend more time clicking and scrolling through screens to boost product usage, we hope they’ll spend more time chopping and mixing in their kitchens to boost their nutrition. And instead of forcing people to adapt their lives to our programs, we seek to adapt our programs to their lives.
So please join us as a partner. Join in our mission to promote the good life in your workplace and in your community. Together, there’s simply no telling just how much good we can do for people and for your business.
