I have an expensive business coach already, and as much amazing stuff as I'm learning from her, I want the nitty gritty of acquiring clients online. I'm in Canada and I really want most of my client base to come from the US, therefore I have to figure out how to meet clients virtually. I'm hoping to learn the specific steps and tech tips to setting this system up, so that networking in person isn't my only means of gaining clients (ie. in person networking events take up much time and money and energy)
I've had little formal business training. I attempted once to run an online soap business. Made the soap, did it all. Then I completely chickened out when the time came to sell it. I was too afraid of putting myself out there. That was one thing that held me back from ITN. I knew I had to be good at business if I was going to succeed. I believe I am ready for that now. I feel like my main fear is because I'm an introvert and it just feels very exposing to put myself out there. So, I joined to learn from you guys. I know I need more training. I've watched you guys build your business over the past four years and I trust you. That is enough for me.
Most of the programs I have seen claim that I'm not getting the number of patients I desire nor am I able to charge the fees that I desire because I'm lacking in certification in X,Y,Z, or knowledge in how to help my patients heal. Not that I am closed to staying current and learning new research and new "healing" skills, but I know for an absolute fact that I know how to help 99% of individuals who are in need of guidance with their health. What I need is a blueprint for an online business that actually works, and you guys are promising to deliver that.
I hope to transition to part-time hospital neurology practice (unsure if I'll continue to do that long-term, or just as a bridge while building my functional practice). Partly, this is for my own health, as getting away from the stress of the emergency hospital practice, and the physical strain of alternating day and night work will be important in continuing my recovery. I have not yet decided whether I would like my functional practice to be strictly 'virtual', or whether to have an actual clinic (in my case, my dream would combine that with a gallery for my artwork, and maybe a coffee house/education center). I can see partnering with or employing a nutritionist, health coaches, and someone skilled at teaching yoga, meditation, and other stress management techniques. I'm looking for a starting point, some help clarifying my dreams, and a road map to get me going. I don't feel clinically ready to start up yet, as most of my learning has been pretty specific to my own needs, and I want a more broad-based functional med education, which I hope to get over the next 9 months through the FMU program.
