Important question for health and wellness professionals who, despite having the skills to transform the health of those they work with, STILL don’t have a solid strategy in place for building a thriving practice and bringing in a predictable stream of clients: 

If there were a predictable, step-by-step method for building a profitable wellness business without the confusion about what you should be doing next, the frustration from how to bring clients in the door, or the overwhelm of needing to do all of it by yourself…

Would you finally feel confident enough to fully embrace the fact that you are a business owner (not *only* a practitioner) and commit to making forward, focused, consistent progress in your business?

Here’s why anything short of emphatic agreement is crippling your success:

Every single day, thousands of your valuable potential clients are signing up for services to seek help for their pressing health challenges.

The question is… Are they signing up for yours?

Here’s the thing…

If you know without a doubt that you’re not using your skills as a practitioner to their highest potential because you’re not working with enough clients

or

Your know your business is getting road blocked by your lack of a solid, executable business strategy and marketing plan and the support you need to carry it out

… then what follows could seriously be the most pivotal moment you look back on a few weeks from now when you are confidently executing on a strategy to make forward, focused progress in your business. 

But first…

The Big Question

You’ve probably asked yourself this dozens of times. Maybe hundreds.

It’s the question you ask yourself at the beginning of the day when you sit down at your desk to get to work on building this dream of yours. 

It’s the question you beat yourself up over when you see others around you succeeding and you still haven’t figured out how to bring enough clients in to feel like you’ve made it as a practitioner. 

“What the heck should I be doing next to build my business?”

Ugh.

In my mind, there’s no question more anxiety provoking for a wellness practitioner in their first few years of business than this one, because it’s a question that often accompanies other fun thoughts like,

“Will I ever be able to make this business work?”

“Am I going to need to go back to my soul-sucking day job??” 

“Who am I to even be doing this in the first place?”

Cue the ensuing feelings of overwhelm and frustration, add in a splash of feeling paralyzed by perfectionism because you’re not sure if you’re doing it “right”, and it’s a recipe for feeling like your dreams are going through their own painful form of apoptosis.

And Let’s Be Real…

With all the effort you’ve put in to becoming a practitioner, shouldn’t you get some dang payoff??

With the amount of time, effort, and passionate commitment you’ve invested in getting trained as a health professional, you deserve the payoff.  

All you’re trying to do is help people! 

You deserve to know exactly how to leverage your time and energy and have an abundantly clear idea of what you need to do to grow your business next. 

You deserve to actually have the bulk of the work DONE FOR YOU, instead of trying to figure it all out by yourself and reinvent the wheel with every aspect of your business.

You deserve to make enough income with this work so that you don’t have to stress about affording the kinds of foods you’re telling your clients to eat. 

And late night venting to your partner should be replaced with kombucha-clinking wins, celebrating the fact that your business is growing and that you’re doing work that lights you up. 

 

4 Reasons You’re Still Stuck With A Chronic Case of Hypo-Successism: 

(and how to cure it)

"I don't have enough clients."

If you’ve been having trouble finding enough clients, it’s actually symptomatic of something deeper. The problem isn’t that you can’t find clients, it’s that you’re missing the mark on how you’re positioning yourself as a practitioner. As a result of that, the messaging that you’re using to try to attract clients is off, so it’s not resonating with people. As a further result of that, you likely haven’t identified the best marketing channels for your unique position in the market and likely aren’t executing on them in high enough volume. And, if you’re like most practitioners, you aren’t doing a great job of following up with the prospective clients you have come across.

What you need:

This can be solved by correctly identifying your unique position in the marketplace, aligning your messaging and marketing methods appropriately, adjusting the volume and frequency of your marketing execution, and having an ongoing plan for keeping in touch with prospective clients so that they can be converted to paying clients. 

 

"I'm not good at business, sales, or marketing."

Let me ask you this… if you were to visit another country without ever having learned the language, would it make sense to beat yourself up for not being able to perfectly and immediately understand what the native speakers around you are saying? Of course not. You haven’t learned the language yet!

This same logic holds true in business. When you don’t have a clear roadmap or a repeatable system for building your business and marketing yourself (or the education and support you need to execute these things competently and consistently), how can you blame yourself for not seeing the business growth you’d like?

You aren’t the problem – it’s the missing education, strategy, and ongoing execution that is.

 

What you need:

It’s not that you “aren’t good” at these things or that you can’t achieve success with them – it’s that you simply need to surround yourself with the right education and resources so that you can understand how they work and subsequently do them competently.

 

"I don't have enough time for marketing."

Studying client folders. Creating client plans. Answering client questions. Ordering supplements. Creating your website. Feeling like you should be posting on social media to promote your business but not totally sure how to do it effectively.

The list goes on and on (and on and on and on). When we’re wearing all the hats in our business, it can be easy to put marketing on the back burner (especially when we’re feeling intimidated by how to do it well in the first place!).

But the unfortunate truth is, if you don’t make marketing a priority, you don’t have a viable business. So what’s a health professional to do? Get strategic.

 

What you need:

You’ve got to step away from any wheels you are currently reinventing when it comes to launching, growing, and marketing a wellness business and plug into the knowledge and resources of those who’ve done it already. Take advantage of pre-assembled resources. Learn from successful practitioners to understand how they’ve leveraged the same 24 hours in a day we all have. Many hands make light work, and this holds true in building a business. Even if you’re a solo practitioner with no employees yet, you don’t have to build your business alone – nor should you. 

"I'm spinning my wheels."

Man, do I understand this. You reach the end of the work day and feel like you’ve been busy all day long but have barely scratched the surface of your to-do list. Or you reach the end of the month, look back, and feel that twinge of regret for not having made more progress. But the thing is, if you don’t have a clearly defined strategy and if you haven’t laid out clear, specific, measurable goals, it is far too easy to default into wheel spinning and fail to make the forward progress you want to see. 

 

What you need:

A clearly defined strategy in place that you’re following diligently, measurable goals that you’re working toward, week after week and month after month, and the support to keep you focused and accountable.

 

Who exactly am I to tell you all this?

Hey there, I’m Jessica Pantermuehl.

And when I’m not geeking out on the latest books in functional nutrition, brewing up ferments like a mad scientist in my kitchen, or basking in the sweaty, sweaty glory of my infrared sauna, I’m running the Holistic Entrepreneur Association, lead instructing for the Nutritional Therapy Association’s Career Development Course, and teaching the marketing and leadership courses at the Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine.

I spent six years in practice as a functional nutritional therapy practitioner and holistic health coach myself, both in private practice and as head of nutrition counseling for an integrative medical center, so I know the power of holistic nutrition to my bones. I’ve helped hundreds of one-on-one clients find relief from chronic pain through nutrition counseling, and many more through online programs and group classes. 

But real talk… the beginning years were rough. I often felt overwhelmed, unclear what the best next steps were, and wishing there was just some sort of roadmap for how to build a business as a practitioner (plus, a whole lot of stress-eating dark chocolate).

I eventually plowed deep into business education and subsequently found my way as a practitioner, but it seemed so WRONG to me that we, as health and wellness professionals, who are doing such important work aren’t really equipped with the business tools and resources that we need to be successful. 

It felt like we were all reinventing the wheel, and this seemed so inefficient to me. The lack of readily available business and marketing resources wasn’t only preventing practitioners in our field from really flourishing, it was also inhibiting our progress in shifting the modern paradigm of healthcare toward a more holistic, preventative model and I wanted to do something about that.

So, I created the Holistic Entrepreneur Association. Not only as a way for me to share the strategies that had worked for me, but to create a robust resource hub for our community where practitioners could learn from a variety of experts in business and marketing, as well as from each other’s mistakes and successes.

I created the HEA so that no practitioner ever needed to feel as confused and alone as I had in my first few years of practice.

I created the HEA so that we could, collectively, shift the paradigm of the way our modern society approaches health.

At this point, the HEA has helped thousands of health professionals in creating successful, sustainable businesses through an authentic, compassionate, and modern approach to marketing and running a business.

And the good news is… 

Building a profitable health and wellness business isn’t actually rocket science.

In fact, it’s easier than ever.

It simply takes learning the strategies that work and implementing them consistently. The HEA is here to support you in not just learning about business building strategies but consistently executing them with guided support, month after month.

So here’s the thing…

If you’ve made it this far, you already know that having a strategy for your business-building efforts is critical to your success. 

But maybe you didn’t know that by having ongoing support in building your business using the system I’m about to share with you, you’ll also have the power to:

  • Tap into systems that already works so that you don’t have to reinvent the wheel.  
  • Let go of the frustration and confusion around where to start when it comes to building your business and prepare for less stress and more forward, focused action. 
  • Swap the trial-and-error and guesswork for a clear, step-by-step approach to building your business in a smart and efficient way. 
  • Feel confident regarding what exactly you need to be working on when you sit down at your desk on a Monday morning, ready to take the next steps to move your business forward.  

These outcomes are fully within reach for you and your wellness business (whether you’re starting from scratch or searching for that B-vitamin shot in the you-as-a-practitioner-know-where of your current business).

… but, they do depend on getting the support you need to take focused, consistent, ongoing action. 

The kind of support that leverages the most current marketing methods and business strategies while dodging all of those bright shiny objects that capture your attention but ultimately leave you spinning your wheels and rummaging around for another square of dark chocolate to help you make it through another frustrating day of trying to figure all of this out 

The kind of support that will help you write your to-do list for the day with confidence, knowing that the steps you’re taking are moving your business forward in a clear and focused direction toward your goals.

The kind of support that has prompted your fellow practitioners to say things like this:  

 

And if you’re still with me, then I couldn’t be more excited to introduce you to the Holistic Entrepreneur Association Professional Membership.

Christine DeiVinere, Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner

Tech Training Made Easy

The technical side of setting up your business can sometimes feel incredibly daunting and act as a frustrating bottleneck that stands between you and a smoothly running business. That’s why the HEA Professional membership also includes simple, easy-to-follow video tutorials that break down the complicated technical parts of marketing your business and walk you through every step of the process.

You’ll get:

  • Step-by-Step Web Design tutorials so that you can quickly and easily create your own polished, professional website in a matter of days. You’ll learn how to create your website starting with the website layout you can find right here, which you can customize to your heart’s content with new images, colors, fonts, additional pages, and a whole lot more
  • Detailed video instructions for how to set up your email service provider
  • Video walkthroughs for how to design and order your own business cards through vetted and affordable professional printing services

 

The HEA Pro Membership has proven to be beneficial in so many ways, especially the Step-by-Step Web Design Course that Jessica developed.

 
I was overwhelmed and wasn’t sure how to begin with building a website. I know what a beautiful website is, but I wasn’t able to articulate it. The Web Design Course made it easy for me to build my site.

The course starts at the beginning, it assumes you know nothing, (and I didn’t) so it worked for me. Her videos were so easy to follow. I would watch her video and pause it after a task, then go over to my website and complete the task. The step-by-step instruction helped me immensely. The course also has additional templates, such as where to find a Disclaimer, Privacy Policy, Terms and Conditions, how to use MailChimp and additional tips along the way. She left no stone unturned.
 
It took less than 24 hours, (with built-in breaks) for me to get the website set up with her directions. Of course, it took a while longer to get my text and photos to look good, however, the template is super easy to use.
 
I couldn’t be happier with my website and I know for a fact that I wouldn’t have been able to build a beautiful website on my own without this Web Design Course. I highly recommend it to anyone. As soon as I finished the course, I recommended it to my classmates.
 
Jessica, thank you for creating this course!

Pre-Designed Marketing Materials 

A primary way that we attract and communicate with our potential clients is through the visual aspects of our branding and marketing.

Things like our business cards, the flyers we hand out for our events, our website… all of these visual elements say something about who we are as a practitioner and as a brand – and yes, in case you didn’t realize it, you now have a brand!

The key to strong, professional, polished branding is consistency.

One of the easiest ways to ensure your branding is visually consistent is by using something called a branding board. In the Professional Membership, you’ll find five pre-designed branding boards that you can choose from, each with their own complete set of corresponding, pre-designed marketing materials.

The HEA is a wonderful organization that is designed to support Holistic Entrepreneurs with resources, tools, ideas, information, and more. My holisitic nutritional therapy practice in Redding, California has greatly benefited from this organization’s resources, and Jessica, the founder, is one of the most personable, friendly, supportive, and helpful individuals I’ve met online. You can see her true passion to help others in everything that she does. I am thanks for the inspiration, help, and support that Jessica and the HEA organization has given so freely. Elise Hawkins Nutritional Therapy is a more equipped, effective, and successful because of this association. Thanks HEA!!

From Experian: “For every dollar spent on email marketing, the average return is $44.25.”

So no, this is not a marketing action that you want to skip. We make it simple to do by providing you with monthly, pre-written, relevant, high-quality articles that you can use for your monthly newsletter.

The carefully crafted content in the HEA membership is helping me make my dream  of putting together a practice to be of service to others, come to life.

Your interviews are thoughtful, professional and filled with gems.  I don’t know what I would be doing right now if it wasn’t for the HEA. 
HEA is shining a light for where I’m going and the steps to get there. 
Danee Aron-Bousaid, Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner

Daily Curated Content for Your Social Media Platforms

Posting health-related articles and nutritious recipes on your social media accounts is a great way to keep your audience interested and engaged, but searching for them online can be time-consuming. We make this aspect of marketing your business easier by providing fresh, relevant, curated content you can easily choose from and share, that’s updated each and every day.

Plus, we provide a Social Media Essentials tutorial to help you understand how you should be using social media, how often you should be posting, and which platforms you should be using.

Jessica has created an incredible resource for budding holistic entrepreneurs. Upon graduating from the NTA, I had a lot of enthusiasm for starting my business, however I didn’t know where to start, especially with my website. Jessica has been incredible in making step-by-step videos to follow. 
 
I am so happy with the way my website looks now, and I am so excited to utilize the social media and marketing resources available with the holistic entrepreneur site. Jessica is friendly and goes above and beyond consistently for her users. I can’t recommend HEA enough!

Val Brown, NTP

Pre-Designed Social Media Images

In addition to providing curated health-related articles and recipes that you can share on your social platforms, we also provide a monthly social media pack with ready-made social media images to download and brand as your own.

These images and their accompanying tips and quotes provide an eye-catching and powerful way to engage your followers and grow your social audience.

The Holistic Entrepreneur Association has been the sole reason I was able to get my business on track after graduating.  I had all of the drive to start helping clients but none of the knowledge or direction to be effective.  The resources and tutorials are invaluable.  I never thought I could create my own website, but your step-by-step course made it possible!  I have gotten so many compliments on how professional it looks.  Additionally, the business blueprint and monthly calendar allow me to streamline my time on the backend of my business and focus on my clients.  You have created a program that is so unique and helpful.  I cannot tell you how appreciative I am of HEA and your quick replies to my many questions.  You are clearly the expert in your realm because all of your suggestions result in solutions.  Thank you.
