Frequently Asked Questions
We asked you what you wanted to know about us and this website, your top questions and our answers are below.
Who are you?
Hello! We are Amy and Nathalie. You can learn more about us in the “About Us” section (surprisingly). We are just a couple of women who’ve lived a couple of lives and learned a bunch of stuff and have a lot of opinions. We’ve made it an important part of our life goals to help other people by spreading what we have learned and creating a safe space for open discussion.
What is this website all about?
As two people with slightly different (yet very complimentary) ways of viewing the world, we thought it would be good to come together, bringing our perspectives, into a place where we can best offer free and paid assistance in the realms of mental, emotional, physical, psychical, and spiritual health. Essentially, Informed and Empowered is a hub for each of business activities as well as a place where we happily devote volunteer resources and time to enhance your ability to live a healthier and happier life.
Why do I have to go off this website to access some of the courses?
Since some of the courses are paid courses through either Nathalie’s business or Amy’s business you will have to go to their own websites in order to access those courses. Most of our free courses, however, are offered right here on the Informed and Empowered website. You should be aware that when you sign up for things on either Nathalie’s or Amy’s external websites you will be giving your email information to those mailing lists as well.
Will my email address be given to other websites when I sign up for things here?
No. Your email address and personal information are important and we keep them as safe as possible by not sharing them with any external contacts. We won’t even add you to our personal mailing lists unless you visit our personal websites and sign up there.
How do I guest post?
Please visit the contribution page for more information about this.
You used to have a team, what happened?
Unfortunately, running a team requires a substantial time commitment which neither of us are able to maintain at this point. We strongly believe in taking care of ourselves and our families so that we can confidently help other people. This means that we have had to scale back our work here at Informed and Empowered and infuse our own businesses into the website to help ensure our financial stability. Without that stability, we would not be able to offer any free resources and would have had to shut the site down completely. We are sad to lose the team atmosphere but believe that it is for the best at this time. We remain in contact with our former team members, thank them greatly for their contributions, and wish them the absolute best of luck in the future.
Why are some courses free and others cost money?
We sincerely wish that we could offer all resources for free. (Hey if we win the lottery we just may be able to do that!) But for now, in order to maintain our own livelihood, we must charge for certain things. We do still provide free resources because we know that not everyone can afford to access paid resources. We want to make mental, emotional, and spiritual health resources as accessible as possible.
Why are some e-books free and others cost money?
Please see above.
