Secrets Of A Successful Wellness Business Owner

Secrets Of A Successful Wellness Business Owner

  I want to talk about a bit of a taboo subject in the health and wellness world:  money. Why do I want to talk about money? Because I believe that your health and your finances are inextricably linked. I also believe that we all need to learn how to make a comfortable income (with plenty of time to enjoy it) so we can live our purpose on this planet. The world needs it. Badly. I have a confession to make:  I only work three days a week (sometimes less) and I make a full-time income. But it wasn’t always that way. Five years ago, I was working full-time at my acupuncture clinic treating 25-30 patients a week and making a great income.   After working so hard for months on end, however, my body finally waved a white flag and I came down with pneumonia. I had to cancel my patients for six weeks.   That was my wake-up call. Sick in bed, stressed about my income flow (or lack of, since I wasn’t...

You’re More Of A Leader Than You Think

You’re More Of A Leader Than You Think

  I used to think I wasn’t a leader. Whenever someone talked about “leadership” I assumed it didn’t concern me. I don’t have any employees, I work for myself, I’m not planning on starting a revolution any time soon.   Recently, I’ve realized being a leader means becoming internally aligned with your message, your purpose for being on the planet.   It means loving yourself and knowing that you are worthy to speak and be heard. It means being vulnerable and tough simultaneously. I know my purpose for being on this planet is to spread the message of women’s health and empowerment. If I could have my way, it would be that every woman feel beautiful, healthy, powerful, honored, and financially free. (And, yes, money is a big part of the women’s health and empowerment picture!)   I believe we all have a purpose for being here, a special gift to improve other’s lives.   I believe you have a bigger impact than you realize, and I believe if you put...

How Choosing Love Saved My Business And My Fertility

How Choosing Love Saved My Business And My Fertility

  Recently, I came across this poignant quote, “Ask yourself what is really important, and then have the wisdom and courage to build your life around the answer.” As an acupuncturist and clinic owner, writer, business mentor, and creator of several online nutrition programs, I struggle with prioritizing. And balance. I am so passionate about every aspect of my life, that it’s hard for me to focus on one and let the other aspects take second, third, fourth, and fifth place.   Until I had my daughter–she demanded first place. And I’m embarrassed to admit that it was not easy giving it to her. Maybe because I waited a little longer than most to have children and I was getting used to my life the way I designed it to be, or because I love working for myself, or maybe it’s because I’m an only child (I’m sure that factors in somewhere, right?) Last night my husband and I decided to try for a second baby. The best “cure”...

My Experience With Marie Forleo’s B-School: The Scariest and Best Decision I Ever Made

My Experience With Marie Forleo’s B-School: The Scariest and Best Decision I Ever Made

  It’s that time of year… B-School is open for enrollment! I like to think of myself as a B-School pioneer because I was in Marie’s very first B-School class. I think there were 100 people, give or take, in the program. Fast forward to today, thousands of people have gone through B-School and Marie was just interviewed by OPRAH! (If you missed that gem, here it is.) Needless to say, Marie Forleo’s B-School completely blew my mind when I first took it 3 years ago.   Fresh out of acupuncture school, I was frustrated with my lack of business savvy, and it showed in my bank account and patient load.   After stumbling upon Marie’s website, I got to know her through her blog and friendly emails. When she opened Rich, Happy and Hot B-School (as it was called then) with Laura Roeder I hoped I had found the help I was looking for and I just prayed that it wasn’t too expensive. When the shopping cart opened to...

The One Decision That Doubled My Income In A Year

The One Decision That Doubled My Income In A Year

The absolute smartest decision I have ever made for my business was to find a mentor. Hands down. How I met Elizabeth Rider (of wholelivingblog.com) is a looooooong story that involves a psychic reading session, Twitter, Dr. Christiane Northrup (author of Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom), and good ol’ fashioned luck. But I knew the second I discovered her that I wanted to do what she was doing. A mentor should inspire you to action, hold you accountable, support you, push you to set higher goals than you thought yourself capable, give you access to the education and resources you need to move your business (and life) forward, and lead the kind of life that you aspire to lead.   A mentor should not make you feel guilty, do your work for you, or be struggling in their own life. That’s not to say that your mentor needs to be Buddha, but he or she does need to be a couple steps ahead of you on the path of growth...
