"My work with the team at Skillful Means has been incredibly helpful. From course design to marketing, I've been both supported and pushed to grow as a professional and a business owner. William and Heather draw from a diverse set of experiences and expertise to set up a collaborative process that's allowed me to simplify my workflow, refine my content, and has set me up to help more people get the good stuff I have to offer!"   -Pete 



The Mindful Entrepreneur Journey  

Module 1: Market Research for your Niche

We'll dive into your areas of expertise and clarify who it is that you can help the most. Then we'll do market research to test out your offering with your niche and make sure it's a marketable offering. We'll show you how to track the data so you know how engaged your audience is with your offering so you can effectively grow your community. 

Module 2: Tailored Messaging

Once we have clear results from your market research and more clarity about your audience, we'll create the messaging that sells your offering and build a funnel that speaks directly to your audience's needs. 

Module 3: Share Your Expertise and Insight

We'll show you how to grow your community, facilitate discussion and meaningful connections through online chat features. You'll then start designing and building your intensive group offering to share your insights and practice with your students, through a combination of live and pre-recorded content.

Module 4: Community Promotion

Promote your live events on our SkillfulMeans community platform and share about your course. We'll also feature your course in our monthly newsletter. We will help you build foundational wellness marketing & sales processes so you can fill your course multiple times a year.
