Honestly, at first I was reluctant to embrace him because I wondered if he was one of those ‘slick’ salesmen. (Which I now see was a reflection of my own discomfort with marketing and not a true picture of him.)
Nonetheless, as I studied him and his materials I was cautious but remained open minded. After all, I wanted my acupuncture practice to succeed and I needed to learn everything I could to ensure that would happen.
What I learned about Michael Port is that he is nothing like my initial (erroneous) perception! He is authentic and very passionate about providing business training to the service-based business community.
He recently created an innovative online small business coaching program that I think is perfect for the acupuncture community. He shows you the fastest and most effective ways to book yourself solid and then build a business that runs without you. Listen, I hate to say it but if you are struggling to run your business and you have not developed systems to automate your marketing and referrals, then you are always going to struggle to make it. It’s just a fact.
Michael Port’s new program is called Booked Solid University and he offers everything you need to know about building your business in one extraordinary e-learning environment.
I know e-learning can take a little getting used to, but for acupuncturists who are no longer in their college environment, it is the next best thing. The structure is the same, in that you have regular class times to meet and you have a community of virtual classmates to interact with. I think the reason many acupuncturists fail in business is because they do not have a disciplined schedule for learning marketing and implementing what they learn.
Booked Solid University keeps you on task and accountable so you are always putting into action what you learn in a sequential, logical manner (just like acupuncture college).
Here’s what’s amazing. You get all of his courses and programs under one roof for just a few dollars a day. His program includes an Entrepreneur’s Mastery Program and Booked Solid Electives that show you exactly how to:
- Get clients with ease and integrity.
- Improve focus on what’s most important.
- Increase free time and improve your lifestyle.
- Maximize wealth and influence.
And, better yet, right now he’s offering a 50% DISCOUNT to the next few people who enroll. It was for the next 50 people but I know those spots are getting nabbed faster than you can say Booked Solid, so there can’t be many left.
I heard he created Booked Solid U because he was sick of all the other so called “gurus” charging ridiculous fees for business education. He just doesn’t think you should pay a lot to learn how to get booked solid. Now, that’s a good man. That’s the right thing to do.
I’ve read every word about the coaching program on his website and it is the most comprehensive, breakthrough interactive, go-at-your-own pace, self-guided, online education community, offering easy-to-use, yet advanced educational technology for the small business owner. Seriously, I know which specific coaching programs are available to acupuncturists and this is one of the best for those of us who are planning a lengthy and successful career in the acupuncture profession.
The ribbon has been cut and the doors flung open to Booked Solid University. I recommend you rush out and grab one of the 50% OFF spots while they still last. Just imagine what your business could look like in one short year from now.
Please do not be one of the (all too many) acupuncturists who will look back and WISH they had taken advantage of this opportunity.

The results of a recent acupuncture practitioner survey have just been released and they are worth paying attention to. “The Information World of Acupuncturists” is a video presentation (below) that explains the purpose of the survey and why the data collected is important for your acupuncture practice. Here’s just a small sample of what you will learn:
- Where do acupuncture practitioners go to get their information? (You might be surprised. I know I was!)
- What is the primary source of new patients for acupuncturists? (You’ll love this!)
- Who do acupuncturists turn to when they need help with difficult patients? (Some things never change. And that’s a GOOD thing!)
- How is the acupuncture profession being integrated into mainstream health care? (We’ve come a long way, baby!)
Click on the video to begin playing. Adjust the volume on your speakers.
They surveyed a number of acupuncture practitioners from the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine (OCOM),the Seattle Institute of Oriental Medicine (SIOM), and the Seattle Healing Arts Center (SHAC) as well as a number of individual acupuncture practitioners.
In 2007 there were approximately 3.1 million adults and 150,000 children seeking acupuncture treatment and these numbers are growing. With an estimated 20,000 licensed acupuncturists in the U.S. are you positioned to treat your share of the population who wants your services?
