Practitioners are told that the only way to succeed these days is to be on every social media platform out there. But I’m here to share my story of how I built a successful 6-figure business as a naturopath – and none of that came from social media.
How I make a consistent 250k income each year in my naturopathic business – without social media
As with anyone’s story, there are a lot of little pieces that added up to make my business what it is today. But there are 3 big factors that made the difference – and that you can use to kickstart your own success story.
I didn’t let being a new graduate hold me back
When you’re a new practitioner, it’s easy to focus on what you don’t know. After all, you’re the freshest face in an industry you don’t know much about yet. But if you can clear the belief that being a new graduate will mean you can’t succeed yet, you’ll be well on your way to an amazing business.
From the very moment I started practising, I was focused on being a success. To me, it was not an option – I had confidence that I could see clients, make a difference, and build a thriving business. My unwavering belief was that being a healer was my purpose, and helping people would naturally lead to my success in business.
This paid off from the start – in my first year as a naturopath, I brought in over $100,000 through my practice. And I didn’t have to go viral on Facebook, dance on TikTok or post on Instagram stories daily to do so.
I clear my own blocks
Before I started practising, I was already working on my mindset. To this very day, I am still working on my beliefs, my stressors, my emotions.
Just like anyone, I hit blocks that have the potential to hold me back personally and professionally. I experience stressful situations and even trauma. But I am committed to doing the work that keeps me moving forward.
This also allows me to be a better practitioner for my clients. There is no debating whether to send them for the necessary tests or recommend a supplement that I know will benefit them. So every single client I work with gets the care, attention and support that they deserve.
I utilise techniques that help my clients to succeed
The missing piece for so many practitioners out there is addressing the effects of emotions, stressors and the nervous system. I made sure that I was working with this with every single client.
We can create the perfect treatment plan with diet, lifestyle and supplements. But if there are beliefs that are creating sabotage behaviours or emotions that mean a client doesn’t feel worthy of help, it doesn’t matter.
It was this discovery that led me to develop Naturopathic Emotional Release. Using NER allows me to set every client up for success from the beginning because we’ve primed their mind and nervous system for the health journey.
With one session of NER, I can uncover and clear the blocks that have held my client back for years or even decades. And as you can imagine, that leads to some incredible health transformations in a short amount of time!
All of the above steps lead to a constant flow of word-of-mouth referrals
Because my clients get the results they desire, they are over the moon! And so they go and tell their friends, their family, their colleagues, their barista, strangers on the train… whoever will listen.
The majority of my clients find me via word-of-mouth referrals. And because they see the same kinds of success, it continues the cycle and more people find me.
This doesn’t mean you shouldn’t use social media!
That’s not the takeaway here. I have practitioner friends who have built their businesses around social media because that’s what lights them up. And I do use social media from time to time – it’s just not the foundation of how I reach potential clients.
Instead, the purpose of this is for you to understand what is possible. My journey is proof that social media is not the only way to be successful as a health practitioner.
So if you’re telling yourself that you can’t be successful because you hate social media, it’s time to dive a little deeper into the real reason.
