Congratulations! You’re a Wellness Professional. Now What?

If you’re a new wellness professional, you may be struggling with what it really takes to build a sustainable wellness business while staying in alignment with your true purpose. You may still be working your “day job” while trying to make your heart-centered business take off or you may have ditched the day job and now your anxiety is growing as you wonder how you’ll pay the bills.

Having Second Thoughts?

It’s not that you’re not trying, but you’re tired of trying to convince people to work with you. You’re tired of trying to figure out where to get your next client. You’re tired of feeling salesy. You feel overwhelmed, alone, and wondering if you made the right decision. You’re not alone.

In fact, the four most common concerns we hear from new wellness professionals struggling to build their business are Information Overwhelm, No One “Gets” You, Internet Envy, and Lack of Real Expert Support. Let’s look at these areas a little closer.

Information Overwhelm

You love to read, research, learn and take every course you can find. You have a lot of great ideas but never seem to get started. When you feel stuck, you go back to do more research. Instead of taking action, you hide in adding more information and ultimately more overwhelm and information overload.

No One “Gets” You

You feel like no one really understands the path you’re on. The people in your life are probably working at jobs that are not fulfilling and don’t understand why you want to follow your passion. You feel alone in going after your dreams. You don’t feel supported but know that deep down you’ve got what it takes to have a successful wellness business. You just don’t know how to make it happen…yet.

Internet Envy

Internet envy occurs when you find yourself watching what other entrepreneurs are doing online. You spend countless hours looking at their blog posts, websites, and social media. You’re looking for the magic combination of answers, but there aren’t any. Like information overload, you continue to research and research until you start feeling like you’re not good enough, like you’ll never get it all figured out.

Lack of Real Expert Support

You know what you want to do and where you want to be but have no idea of how to get there. You know you need help, you’re passionate about your vision but passion isn’t enough. You know you need to learn from real world experts who have successfully paved the path to your field of dreams.

So, how can you turn all of this around? How can you overcome the fear, that feeling of being stuck, unsupported, and not good enough? How can you ignite the flame of passion within and run a successful wellness business?

Change Your Course Forever

We believe there are two things that will change your course forever. These two things make the difference between staying stuck and building momentum to take you to the next level. The first is surrounding yourself with like-minded people and the second is real life mentorship.


Surround yourself with like-minded people who will support you when you’re feeling down and help you not feel alone. When you belong to a community of like-minded people, you have others who can support you. You have others who can offer suggestions, feedback, and ideas. You can learn from collective research and life experience rather than just what you’ve come across yourself.

Expert Advice

Finding support, advice, and mentorship from someone who’s been there and can show you the way is invaluable. Having someone in your court helps you learn quickly about what it really takes to build a sustainable wellness business. When you learn from experts in your field, you’ll be inspired to go further and to make a deeper contribution to the world.

Combining community and expert advice is a winning combination. That’s why we created the Wellness Professionals Thrive Mastermind.  This is an exclusive mastermind group where you’ll receive ongoing training, tips, and tools. You’ll get real support and guidance. You’ll get real world expert advice and mentorship.

As a member of this mastermind, you’ll be able to connect with others to help you stay on track, receive feedback, encouragement and support. Isn’t it time to stop feeling stuck? Isn’t it time to join a community of like-minded professionals that “get” you and want you to succeed?
