A woman who has a service or product idea based in an “alternative” health or spiritual field which does not have a traditional path to market?


A woman who has an educational, traditional, or cultural skill they’d like to teach others, and be paid for their expertise at the same time?


A woman whose passion-based business is up and running, but who is now feeling in over her head?

If any of these apply, keep reading, this bootcamp has been designed just for you!

Perhaps your business idea looks like this?

You’re an artist or   photographer and   want to start offering pet-portrait services.

You’ve sewn patchwork  quilts all your life, and now want to create top dollar  personalized baby-quilts.

You’re planning to offer vegetable growing classes to home schooled kids to make a little retirement cash.

You want to teach  astrology classes via a series of online  workshops—and still make a profit.
