The Entrepreneurial Journey Is Hard, Don’t Go It Alone
No clear direction. Loneliness. Doubt. Knowledge gaps. No peer support. No direct access to mentors. Relentless distractions. Confusion about tools. Fear of failure.
Entrepreneurs battle these struggles every day. These struggles can lead to inertia, unfocused action, wasted resources, poor decision making, and feelings of overwhelm. Faced with these struggles, it’s no wonder that so many entrepreneurs never start or burn out far short of achieving their dreams.
This difficult terrain is all part of the entrepreneurial journey. It’ll never be easy. Success will never be guaranteed. But the probability of success – building a profitable defensible business on your own terms – can be dramatically improved with the help of a business mentor and by following a proven road map.
The least risky path to a profitable wellness business is: choose your idea -> develop it into a profitable side hustle (part-time business) whilst keeping your day job -> quit your day job and go full time.
- Passionate about the wellness space and a world free of preventable disease.
- Driven by purpose.
- Willing to work hard.
- Eager to create your own luck.
- Ready to start a side hustle or improve an existing business.
If that sounds like you, and if you’ve been looking for a way to make it happen, then I’d love to welcome you into the Wellness Business School.
The Wellness Business School is in beta mode. That’s special – for me and for you. It’s a moment of exploration. It’s a moment of innovation. It’s a moment to establish deep roots. If you feel the excitement of being part of something special from the very beginning, now is the opportune moment to become a Founding Member.
But first, let’s see if the Wellness Business School is a good match for you:

Frequently Asked Questions
You may have questions. Here are some important ones to know about before starting your journey:
What will I get?
As an entrepreneur, I have found many resources to be helpful, from books to mentors to courses, and most of all, my own experiences. However, I have not found a single source that pulls everything together for the wellness entrepreneur and does it well. That is until a mentor pointed me in the direction of Bill Aulet the Managing Director of the Martin Trust Center for MIT Entrepreneurship.
With his help, I was able to curate the best frameworks, methodologies, tactics, and tools used by serial entrepreneurs and taught by the top business schools such as MIT and Stanford and adapt them, where needed, for the wellness space. You’ll learn the best from the best. Organised into the crucial step-by-step road map needed when launching and growing a wellness business.
The goal of the Wellness Business School, then, is to provide guidance and a road map in a messy and sometimes confusing process where you, the entrepreneur, are attempting to do something that has never been done before. What a terribly difficult task to take on, but what an incredibly important and rewarding one.

I want to make sure you understand this is not a get rich quick scheme. Entrepreneurship requires effort and the results will vary significantly from participant to participant. Not all businesses and new products or services succeed, and this program will not guarantee your success. This offering is an education tool. Always remember that running a business involves risk. Some businesses succeed, and some fail. Any testimonials are real and valid but are not guarantees that you will obtain the same results.
