Mind Over Markets - Marketing and Business Development Services for Holistic Doctors and Practitioners


As a holistic practitioner, you've probably spent years becoming impeccably trained in the holistic healing arts and medicine. Yet, I have found that one of the most difficult things for small business owners to do is market their products or services. That's not what you've spent years training for. But I have.

I would like to offer you a free marketing coaching session to see if Marketing Coaching or Personal Coaching with me is right for you.

A Brief Introduction

I have worked in marketing from Madison Avenue to Main Street America -- for over 25 years and combined this with my 15 years in the holistic field and green movement. I have helped launch a number of green and holistic companies, institutes and services from Marsha Mason's Resting in the River Organic Farm & Natural Products to The Institute of Holistic Health Studies at Western Connecticut State University to entrepreneurs like you.

As an entrepreneur myself, I developed a line of products in my basement and in four years sold my business to the second largest food company in the world. How did I do this? Marketing, strategic planning and consistency.

What I love to do is work one-on-one with holistic and green business owners to help them navigate the marketing maze so that they too can grow their businesses to new levels of success.

Here are some of the areas I can help you with:

  • Developing a Marketing Action Plan for your business and lifestyle
  • Creating customized marketing solutions specific to your business needs
  • Identifying the best traditional and guerilla marketing strategies and tactics
  • Obtaining ongoing guidance on all company communications
  • Assisting in development of product and/or services to enhance your business and bottom-line
  • Navigating Public Relations and traditional and digital marketing
  • And more...
As a business owner, you are often alone in making big decisions regarding the future of your business. I can help you make wise ones that are right for you, your business and lifestyle. I invite you to check out my websites to learn more about how we can work together.
