Many of us don't feel like real business people if we don't check off certain boxes:
Professional web site
Accounting under control
LLC set up
Packages and pricing on point
Do you feel like a fake because your back end is out of control?
The truth is, if you are serving customers and making money, you are a real business person. But right now is a great time to get all those things under control, because you will have
More time and freedom
More leads for your business
A professional presence
The relief of having all that stuff just done.
Still seem daunting? There is nothing like community support and a coach to urge you on and make sure you are making the most of your time.
Is to maximize your down time to create backend systems in your business, get your website in order, and create a professional presence, so that when we all emerge, you can spend more time with your clients and less on your business.

You handled this world crisis in the middle of a class with such grace! You helped us stay focused, motivated, to see paths that we thought were closed right now, and demonstrated adaptability in your own business. You also are a generous and thoughtful instructor, and I loved this course!
I learned how to network effectively with other animal health providers who will lead me to my dream clients. With the CCM techniques, I was able to reach out to like-minded individuals and organizations by using focused thoughts and language skills that I learned in the class to effectively present myself, my work, and my business. I received positive responses and had great conversations that will position me well for the future.
I have been massaging dogs part time and wanted to get more clients to build out my canine massage business, which has been tough. The course gave us ideas on how to get new ideal clients and led us through the process step by step. It also helped me to realize my fears which held me back and encouraged me to get over them. I can't wait to implement the knowledge I acquired during the CCM training and report back many new clients. Lisa is a great presenter and a caring coach.
The course provided me with some great ideas how to grow my business and get more clients. CCM helped me to realize that I just need to take actions and don't be scared of rejections.
I have been a people massage therapist since 1998 and doing canine massage off and on since 2004. This past year things were starting to pick up. I was wanting to get more canine clients so I can close my people side of the business. Because I had had such a hard time promoting my canine business in the past, I needed a fresh look on how to do this. Just my luck! I saw this class and decided I would sign up. I am so glad I did. It has given me a renewed look at how I am going to build my business. Fresh ideas and made me optimistic in moving forward.
I liked having all videos the printouts of the classes, as I missed several of the online classes. I like being able to go back and re-watch the videos. Thank you so much!!
