Build: Basic Business Blueprint

So… How’s Business?

First up: I know that you probably don’t want a business. Or even think you need one.

You want a practice.

You became a hands-on practitioner to help people with your work, not to be an overworked small business owner.

That’s the only reason it would make sense to spend all that time in your training!

So why do what you hate— especially when it takes you away from doing what you love?

Not only that, your message is about transformation, which seems completely unrelated to business… but it breaks your heart that you can’t actually DO your work with enough people to make you feel like you’re doing what you came here for.

And underlying that, something bubbles up from time to time, and maybe it’s coming up more often for you lately… you just can’t can’t understand why people don’t want what you have to offer.

I mean… you’re committed at a deep level to the work you do and you know you can help people, but you’re starting to wonder if you’re really cut out to be a practitioner in the first place.

It’s not that you haven’t been trying. By now, you’ve probably done everything you can imagine to get more clients, earn a living and spread your work in the world. But it just isn’t working and it’s getting to the point where it’s got to work for you, or you’ve got to work for someone else.

I get it.

That’s just about where I was when I finally realized that it’s pretty much impossible to help the people I’m here to serve without a solid business foundation that lets me do my work without worrying about it.

That’s why I’m asking you – 
'how’s business?'

Because whether you want it or not, if you don’t have the practice you want, I’m guessing you don't have a business that makes it possible.


Here are some of symptoms you might be experiencing ...

  • You might not have enough clients or enough time or feel valued enough by your clients.
  • Maybe your income is on a roller coaster or you feel totally stressed.
  • Working for yourself gives you complete control over your time but you don’t know when to show up.
  • You don’t have a boss, but you’ve got way more work than you’d have if you did.
  • Without a boss, you’re confused and overwhelmed about what to do, when to do it, and how much is enough.
  • When clients cancel at the last minute or don't show up for their sessions, you want to be paid for the time you set aside for them. But instead of telling them that, you get upset and keep it to yourself. And of course, that affects your relationship going forward and it doesn’t put any more money in your bank account.
  • You feel like there are things you could be doing to reach new people, but you hate social media and you don't know what else to do let alone how to do it.
  • You keep trying new things but didn't know how to figure out whether or not they're working so a lot of the time it's like inserting money directly into the drain.
  • Instead of getting an automatic deposit of salary into your bank account, your income is unpredictable
  • Maybe you don’t really know how to price your work, and if you raise your fee it feels like going over Niagara Falls in a barrel.
  • At tax time, you wonder where the money is going to come from.
  • And retirement?—health insurance?—vacations? Those are things other people have.

Here’s what that means.

If you feel like it just couldn’t get worse... or if something doesn’t change NOW, you’re going to have to give up and go get a job,

then you've got just one tiny problem:

The "business" you don't want is biting you in the butt.

Bite Back - start to gain control and build a successful practice

Is the current situation anything like the dream you had?

And if it isn't, how the heck are you going to get there if you continue doing what you’ve been doing—ignoring your business?

I don’t want to oversimplify a solution and say that it’s all about mindset... for sure there are skills involved and you have to learn them just like I had to learn them.

But honestly—the biggest thing that changed for me was that I really got it that without a business my clients weren’t safe.

There was no way I could know I’d be here next year to help them if I didn’t create a reliable foundation to support myself in giving them the help they needed from me.

When I got that deep in my bones, I realized how important it was to embrace owning a business–and figure out how to do it my own way so that I could stay in integrity. And that’s why I know that  when you’re writing the rules for your own business:

…You can work when it suits you

…You can deal with people consciously.

…You can relax in not knowing everything because there’s help available.

…You can plan for vacations, earn enough to buy insurance and know that you have money to retire on.

… You can count on feeling aligned with your purpose while you earn a living in integrity.

Allison Rapp

I’m Allison Rapp and since 2010, I’ve been working with practitioners to help them attract and enroll more clients and how to have a business that supports their dream without feeling like a nightmare.

I’ve helped many of them and I can help you too.

Introducing:
Basic Business Blueprint for Hands-On Practitioners

Become the Boss Your Business Needs!

I want to help you take care of the business essentials you need to feel secure in going forward.

You could be a new practitioner or a seasoned hand who can never figure out where your estimated tax payments are going to come from—either way, you’ll get enough detail to satisfy your inner voices, without feeling like you’re being flooded by a fire hose. You’ll get just the right amount of information in modules designed to help you put a solid foundation under your business without spending more time than you need to.

In just a few hours a week, you’ll begin to build a business steeped in your own integrity, so it will feel just like you whenever you sit down to work on it. Live sessions with me will give you a chance to get your questions answered and ask for laser coaching.

You’ll make progress instead of being bogged down in confusion and overwhelm—and our implementation calls will help you stay on track without getting so caught up in the process that you can’t find time to talk to new clients.

Within 6 weeks, you’ll feel like you can’t remember why you resisted having a business.

What practitioners tell me is that implementation that makes a big difference in moving forward. That’s why there’s plenty of it in this program: what I want for you to a start to the new year with a simple plan you can make work. That means that it not only fulfills your needs, but it feels like you.

Here's What You'll Do...

  • Be A Boss

You’re the best practitioner you can be, right?

Now you can be the best boss you can be, too– and you can do it in the least amount of time.

How?

By focussing on the 3 most important things the BOSS focuses on when you have a job:

  • Time
  • Money
  • Clients
  • Turn Roadblocks into a Roadmap

You’ll develop a list of thing you think you probably should do, but they just don’t serve you or your clients. Imagine taking a big sigh of relief when you figure out that you can take them off your plate without doing any of them!

You’ll find out what your obstacles are, where they’re coming from and make a plan for getting past them.

You’ll look at five areas that typically bog practitioners down and learn tools for moving beyond where you are so you can go where you want to go… because frankly, what got you here, won’t get you there.

When you know what to do every day—and deal with what stops you from doing it—you feel free to enjoy yourself, your clients and your business without worrying that you’re missing something that will come back to get you later.

  • Hush Your Inner Voices

You’ll show up with greater confidence when your inner voices become supportive.

Let’s face it — when they’re nattering at you, you have to fight for every inch of forward movement. That doesn’t help you or your business.

When you learn how to collaborate with your inner voices, you show up with more confidence. That makes it easier for your clients to know you can help them.

  • Get Personalized Help

In Our Group Q&A/Laser Coaching Calls

Practitioners tell me is that help with implementation makes all the difference in moving forward.

That’s why I’m so excited to tell you that we’re going to have 5 live 90-minute calls… That’s 7½ hours of group coaching from me!

This is where you’ll meet our community, bring your questions, and get my help with the situations that make your practice unique.

It an opportunity to learn from each other and growing your business will feel more collaborative than you thought was possible.

  • Be part of a Community

With Like-minded Practitioners Around the World

One of the things my clients tell me over and over is that the quality of interaction in our community is unique. Practitioners from around the world connect and create a spirit of collaboration that so many of us long for.

Our private group on Facebook will be a meeting place for colleagues to share questions, concerns, ideas… and CELEBRATIONS!

You’ll meet other practitioners and get support at a level that is really unprecedented in most practitioner communities. It’s one of the reasons my clients have so much success—we’re in it together and everybody’s boat is floating on a rising sea.

What practitioners are saying . . .

Had fundamental '"aha" moments on time, money, business tools and getting clients. Plus clarified blocks on getting the business I want... and realise that I need to do lots of that inner work. With new simple and vital tools, I now feel like that I CAN have a real business and make money doing what I love. Allison promised ... simple options... and she totally delivered.

Sarah McAllum, Feldenkrais Practitioner, New Zealand

I think my favorite and most valuable part of this challenge was that I have been able to identify those efforts that gave me a sense of empty accomplishment and realize that I can have the website, the workspace, the biz cards, flyers, but if I don't have the clients to start filling up my schedule, I'm right where I started.

Mauricio Herrador, ABM Practitioner, San Francisco, CA

In her group calls, Allison gives support, laser coaching and time for introspection. That makes it possible to find and refine my own path.

Shrutee Sharma, Feldenkrais Practitioner, Seattle, WA, USA

(It) brought me awareness of what is really important to focus on it. And that is the start of so many realizations of how to build the confidence I need it. Thought me to be the responsible for building the practice I desire and made the path so much clear and easy to make this happen. The tools Allison facilitates are incredible and set up the sacred time to work on my business was so helpful.

Marianna Muradas, Feldenkrais Practitioner, São Paulo, Brazil

In 30 minutes I was able to evaluate whether the combination of private lessons, workshops and classes I was planning for this year would lead to reaching my income goal. The simple formulae Allison provided made quick changes possible, to see the results of adding a class or increasing fees for private lessons. Ingenious and invaluable for creating and maintaining a successful practice.

It is not possible to guarantee — and I make no promises regarding — your specific results. If your financial situation is such that the investment you are considering means that you will be unable to fulfill your financial responsibilities to yourself and others, this may be the wrong time for you to invest in your practice.

Looking at my weekly / monthly schedule with a set income in mind was mind-blowing and I have already put my new plan into action... This program has been a shakeup. I spent lots of energy promoting my ATM's but as the economy fizzled so did they. However I now see I have to look within and find my new strengths and look at my clients as the bugle callers they want to be and help them do this smoothly and easily.

Barbara Jones, Feldenkrais Practitioner, Cyprus

You are pole-vaulting Feldenkrais from the Best-Kept-Secret into a whole other realm of 'household word.'

Jane McAllister, Feldenkrais Practitioner, Richmond, VA, USA

I was able to re-frame the worries about my business project which were creating stress — into questions that could lead to solutions.

Feldenkrais® Practitioner, USA

(You)… helped me to see and appreciate where I am in my process of building a business, to have more compassion for where I am and to take the next step with more grace and ease appreciating that my business is not going to be able to support me right now and that's ok, I can trust that I'm building it and to focus on how it is best for me to get clients.

Hilary Lake

Allison helped me focus in a meaningful way and invited me to take small successful steps now vs. overthinking and waiting to act until all ducks are in a row (which never happens!)​

LeeAnn Starovasnik, Feldenkrais Practitioner, Seattle, WA, USA
Allison Rapp

There’s a huge gap between what’s being taught about how to get clients, and the people who need it most — like hands-on holistic practitioners. My expertise in is bridging that gap for you, so you can understand what to do, and how to do it and so it feels easy and natural.
