How do entrepreneurs create successful start-up companies?
By turning what they are passionate about into a business.
Beginning or updating a website, writing your bio, getting photos taken, attracting clients, and getting into an abundant mindset making money doing what you love is enough to make any of us feel daunted.
So here’s the question:
Are you ready to launch into your passion for coaching?
If yes, this hands-on class is designed for you.
How do you create your Mindfulness, Wellness, and Somatic Coaching Business?
By drawing from entrepreneurial and business principles, this class helps you create a solid foundation for your coaching practice – and, turn your course trainings into a business reality.
This work-oriented class will help you transform your unique character strengths and coaching mission into gold. Develop a strong business infrastructure while creating strategies to find your clients.
Business Alchemy is taught with two viewpoints in mind: that of the entrepreneurial coach and that of their clients, who may also be creating successful start-ups. Bottom line: this is an experiential class that will allow you to create a solid foundation for your coaching business to manifest into reality.

What Students Are Saying
Business Alchemy came at the perfect time in my identity formation as a coach. The instructors brought home practical aspects of crafting a business and marketing tools in a way that was more about solid self-expression rather than by-the-book, one-size-fits-all. The creativity flowed.
This course [Business Alchemy] gave me the jolt of confidence I needed to finally get started with my website. An excellent balance between mindfulness, marketing theory, and actionable results. I highly recommend it.
This [Business Alchemy] is the course I was waiting for to help me understand what it takes to be an entrepreneur. The combination of theory, nuts & bolts business and marketing concepts and hands-on instruction for creating a web page is magical! It really is alchemy!
Business Alchemy helped me grow into and clarify my purpose in coaching. I was able to create the story of me that brought me to where I am and my passion to inspire others on their journey. Ann-Marie’s guidance through understanding service marketing was heartening, powerful and inspiring. Sarah’s encouragement and gentle way of pulling the essence of us to the surface was spectacular! Thank you both, as well as my fellow students, for an incredible experience! And I’m getting clients!
I have taken other sales and marketing courses for coaching, but I prefer the “big picture” approach of this one, which links one’s vision to the sales and marketing process rather than simply pushing the idea of closing a coaching “sale.” Focusing on the client’s well-being and what we have to offer is much more value-driven for me.
I learned a great deal in the Business Alchemy course, mostly that I have the desire, motivation and ability to make coaching my life work. I am very thankful for the instructors helping me see the glorious possibilities that are within my reach.
Kristin’s dynamic teaching style made this class fun and exciting and got my creative juices flowing. I was surprised at how much I learned about what I needed, and didn’t need to move forward in launching my coaching business. I also gained more clarity on how I want to deliver my message of what I do. Read more
Business Alchemy is the perfect class to complete your prerequisites for certification. I was able to draw from the work that I developed in my other MCS classes and bring it all together into a concrete vision of my business as well as the layout for my website. Not only did I solidify my mission and vision statements, polish my elevator pitch and build the foundation for my website, to name a few, my confidence in who I am as a Professional Coach grew profoundly.
The course brought me from being very anxious about the business aspect of coaching to gaining the confidence necessary to take care of this very important aspect of a coaching business. I have gained the necessary skills, made contacts with people who could help me with certain aspects of setting up my business and I even caught a glimpse of the possibility that business part can be fun and a great way for learning new skills. So inner business alchemy definitely happened for me, for which I am feeling extremely grateful to my instructor and all my classmates.
This course was very helpful for me. It changed my outlook from pushing selling to offering my gifts to the people that are in need of them.
