    Lisa – Thank you SOOOOOOO much for this information and guidance. I am just getting a practice going here in Winter Springs, FL (by Orlando) and I am really lost on the business and marketing side. I just read through your “10 mistakes” e-book and it is exactly the guidance I need. I am going to go back through and take notes so I can get myself more focused.

    Thanks Again,

  3. Hi Lisa,

    The ebook is great. Wish I had it 10 years ago. I have made every mistake and corrected most of them. Thanks for a great summary it is useful for Newbies and us old timers alike!

    Indicating the major errors is a very important first step.I look forward for
    the sequel : “Tactics for overcoming these errors applicable for real life situations “.
    Keep up the good work and thank you .

  5. Lisa!

    Just finished Complementary and Alternative Marketing, great stuff! The 10 big mistakes was great as well, I’d already made a few of them, remedied most of them, and now I know about the rest of them. 🙂

    Keep up the good work!

    Everyone just out of acupuncture school, or just about to start your own practice/business, MUST READ Lisa’s 10 Mistakes! Sure wish i had read these when I got started…..would’ve saved me a lot of time and re-inventing the wheel.

    Many thanks for your email Lisa.
    I wish your excellent tips had been around twelve or so years ago when I first started my acupuncturist career.

    Best wishes,

    Hi Lisa,

    thanks for the interest you came across as a very genuine individual. I have just begun and thank God I did a few things right ie good web address and working from home. But the marketing is still on hold still at the planning stage. I hope your business continues to grow and wish you a happy and prosperous 2010.

    The information was quite useful… having been in private practice for a few years, wondering why business is up and down, I’m ready to implement new marketing strategies and this is just the start I needed. It’s nice to hear that others have made the same mistakes I had! 2010 is going to be great. 🙂 🙂

  10. Hi Katherine,

    Thank you for your kind words! Good luck to you with setting up your practice. Be sure to ask for help if when you need it!

    Hi Lisa,

    it was a great reading even if, in my school, we had a pretty good management class. The information with the web site was especially important and if i need some more help in the future, i will check your leads.

    Currently i am in Europe for a few months, taking care of some private business. I am not planning to open my own practice just yet. When i return to NY, i will continue getting some acupuncture jobs as i did previously. It’s also an interesting experience.

    Anyway, it’s always good to hear about any kind of success in our field.

    Best regards,

    Renata Plaut

    I just bought your e-book, and then looked at this video – how awesome! Such great info! I’ve been in a v. small practice for a while (I have a second job), and was happy to see that I didn’t make all 10 mistakes. That being said, I’m going to get on my written policy re: bounced checks, etc in the morning. That’s one I missed! And I’m going to take credit cards starting next week – the tip about asking for debit cards will be very useful.

    I can’t thank you enough, Lisa. Looking forward to the passive income, too!

  13. Hi Julie,

    I am so glad that my “10 Big Mistakes” video was helpful. I am sure that the information in my ebook, “Complementary and Alternative Marketing”, will give you a new perspective on how to generate different streams of income as well as market your unique services. Keep me informed about your progress and don’t hesitate to contact me if you have questions.

    Hi Lisa,
    Thank you for your “10 Big Mistakes” video presentation. It was concise, informative and definitely accurate. I’ve been in practice for 18 years. I sure wish I had seen a presentation like yours back when I started. I made several of the same mistakes, but like you I learned from them. This information should definitely be part of the school curriculum. I would recommend that anyone setting up a practice pay close attention to your advice. I think, thanks to you, that I need to revisit the website part.
    Thanks again,

  15. Hi Lisa,
    Great stuff!!! I just bought your ebook, “Complementary and Alternative
    Marketing” and I’m ready to take my practice to the next level. I’ve been “just getting by” for too long now. There’s a lot I already learned from watching the 10 mistakes video (I wish I would have seen it years ago) and I’m looking forward to diving into the CAM maarketing ebook and apply the knowledge to my practice. Thanks for sharing and keep up the great work.

    You say
    Get my free acupuncture business plan when you purchase,
    “Complementary and Alternative Marketing”

    I purchased your ebook last night. I wonder where I can get your bonus stuff?

  17. Thank you for your interest in my book! All of the links to the bonuses (including my Acupuncture Business Plan, 4 Webinar recordings and other ebooks) should have arrived in a separate email at the time of your purchase. Sometimes this email automatically goes into a JUNK or SPAM folder so please check there. This happens most often for hotmail or yahoo email accounts. Please go check those folders now and look for an email from me with the subject: “Your 6 BONUSES (Plus 1) – CAM Acupuncture Website Marketing Ebook”. If for some reason it did not get delivered, just email me at lisa[@]insights-for-acupuncturists.com and I’ll resend it it, pronto!
