Why do you do what you do? Why did you start your practice as an acupuncturist, chiropractor, nutritionist, sound therapist, intuitive counselor, or …?

Is it because you wanted to help others? Do you still want to help others? Despite the stress and work of being a solo practitioner or sole proprietor?


Now, do you want to share your message of health and healing for the mind-body-spirit-planet? Do you want to make money? Do you want both?

After all, some of you may still have a ‘day job.’ Others of you struggle to pay your bills every month. Wouldn’t it be nice to make a difference in the lives of others, do what you love and earn a living?

As you earn more money doing what you do, others will see you as more successful and be more likely to bring you business. Yep. Then, you’ll become more confident and your confidence will shine more brightly, drawing even more clients and customers to your practice.

First, people need to know what you do. Has anyone ever asked “What do you do?” and you’ve hesitated? You weren’t sure where to start because you do so much. I’ve met many healers who are certified in several modalities. The most successful are focused, “I’m a healer.””I help others find their true calling.””I help clients become more successful.”

These answers open the door to further conversation so you can get to know a person first, and they can get to know you. If we’re buying something (product or service) for the first time, we generally want to buy from someone that we like and trust. By taking a little time to create a relationship, it’s more likely you’ll have a new customer/client, one that will go on to talk about the wonderful work you do!
