Fantastic program you put together! I enjoyed
hearing your ideas; reinforcing what I'm already
doing and picking up new tips.
This will be really useful information for my HTP
mentees. I will be able to direct them to a
valuable resource to guide them in getting started

Thanks for your help!

This was an amazing class for me which involved
several firsts. It was my first marketing class, my
first teleseminar class as well as my first class
with Marilee. During the week, I found myself
chewing on segments of the class and trying to fit
the pieces of the puzzle together. Although I have
not yet completed this ongoing process, I now feel
more focused and confident about the process because
I have more options--options that I had not even
considered before. I especially appreciated the
ability to relisten to the session and I look
forward to taking Marilee's course on internet

Martha Rather BFA, CHTP/I
I have been following Marilee directly and
indirectly for many, many years because of her
valuable, inspiring, encouraging, and "cool"
knowledge base. This last teleseminar on the "8
Steps" was offered to us at a great time since I had
been feeling discouraged in reference to my own
personal and professional setbacks. The teleseminar
allowed me to renew my goals and vision both
personally and professionally. I am literally
addicted to the convenience of this type of distance
learning....it is win/win.
As always....Thank You Marilee:)
Healing Touch for Peoples & Pets
Thank you so much for all the wonderful information.
It is truly helpful. I practice healing touch also,
I am level 3 and hope to continue to level 5. I also
do Reki level 1. I love being a NP. I currently left
me job due to lack of autonomy, and lack of allowing
me to practice how I want (compassion, incorporating
holistic therapies). In October I have decided to
start offering healing touch and eventually other
therapies to my beloved patients who I adore. Thank
you so much I will look forward to the EBook!!

The information Marilee presented for health

The 8 Steps to Kick Start Your Practice was a
fabulous four session web class. It was power packed
with practical "how to" information. Marilee
presented each topic in doable, easy steps. Some of
this information I have heard before and some was
new material. However, the way she presents it, I
think that even I can do them. She tells you what to
do, why to do it, how to do it and when to do it.
She speaks in a wonderful, uplifting voice that is
both energizing and encouraging. I personally liked
the web cast format. I was not available on Monday
evenings for the live program. But I could listen at
my convenience and leisure. I feel I have been "Kick
Started" and have a great tool box of information to
help me. Thank You Marilee.

so much useful information without a steep fee AND
without getting either overwhelmed or bored. Marilee
presents extremely valuable information with
inspiration and enthusiasm helping me to believe
that I too can start a successful business.
Thank you, Marilee, for your compassion and heart!
The information in this class was very informative.
Some of it was not new to me, but Marilee put it
together in an easy format. I really enjoy the
teleseminar format because I am too busy to spend an
entire day sitting in a classroom. I recently
relocated and this was just the impetus I needed to
get busy setting up my practice.
RN, MSN, AHN-BC, RM/T, HTP-A
I felt that the presentation was well researched and
offered practical insights into the advantages and
drawbacks of each type of practice. It was
especially helpful to me since my practice is a
combination of types--volunteer, in my home, spa and
going to others' homes as well as working through
the local health food store. I guess I like variety.
In addition, the suggestions cited to expand a
practice in one's community by soliciting to local
businesses and organizations really confirmed what I
had been envisioning. I always gain encouragement
from Marilee's insights about money and fee-setting.
Thank you so very much for creating this.

I want to thank you for letting me attend your
recent "Kick-Start Your Practice" teleseminar. I
recently left my job of twenty-one years working in
a hospital as a nurse. I had been dabbling in in
energy work for the past four years and was ready to
make a life change. I am a Level 3 Healing Touch
practitioner and Reiki practitioner and wanted to
get myself out there but didn't know how. Your
program gave me some great ideas on how to market
myself. I think what I learned most from your
program was the realization that what I have to
offer is worthwhile and can really benefit people.
It gave me the courage and motivation to move
forward. After listening to the first class I gave a
lecture at a local retirement home and began giving
free sessions to the residents there. I can't wait
to try out some of your other suggestions and ideas.
I enjoyed listening to the seminar through the

The second class, I felt discouraged; I
couldn't imagine making connections in the community
similar to the ones that you described. The
next day, I went to the Wild Oats store near me to
get a few things. Right at eye level on the door was
a flyer asking for people who were involved with
complimentary and alternative therapies to leave
their business cards in the holistic health center
of the store. I couldn't believe it. I
went there and talked to the person briefly, (she
was on another call.) I left my business card.
They have a folder that they keep on hand.
Then I went back and talked to her later and she was
very impressed with my background. She made
more notes to add along with my card.
It was amazing! Like an instant homework
assignment completed. I don't know if I will
get calls from that encounter but it gave me the
confidence to approach others in the same way.

that all the ways I have attempted to create a
successful practice was outlined in your tele-seminars.
I have not seen the success that I thought I would
see but listening to you and your ideas gave me hope
that time will pay off. I am not a public speaker
but you gave me some encouragement to talk to
groups. I just need to look at it as reaching out to
share my gift with people. I will go back and look
at why the things I was doing did not work for me
and incorporate some of your ideas and see if that
will make a difference in my practice.

Thank you for presenting four weeks of exceptionally

homecare and hospice office facility. After hearing
your talk on getting and serving your clients, I
decided to volunteer to do a presentation on
"Compassion Fatigue and Self-Care" as it relates to
these healthcare providers. Just as you said it
would, my volunteer work has generated a tremendous
amount of interest in what I do. After the week's

I am so pleased with the excellent information about
Kick Starting Your Practice. My clients are very
happy now with E-mail follow-ups and helpful hints.
They have given feedback that they look forward to
them. My practice is definitely increasing since I
started to focus on my story of how I started into
Healing Touch when my husband had a recurrent brain
tumor and the dramatic difference it made in his
recovery. Focusing more on advertising my passion,
has made it easier than trying to tell about the 6
different modalities I use. Listening more to what
my clients want is making it easier to meet their
needs instead of trying to determine which Healing
Touch techniques to use. This was extremely valuable
training I wish I had received 7 years ago!
I am new in the business and these classes have
given me a lot of information that I needed. I have
really enjoyed the classes and will share my
knowledge with others as I grow in this business.
Thank you so much.

Marilee thank you for the timely web cast series on
how to kick start your practice. This information is
very helpful for me to focus on setting up my
Healing Practice. I will be pinned a Healing Touch
Spiritual Ministry Practitioner at the Young Living
Essential Oils convention in Washington DC during
the month of September 2007.
Also, what I call "living the work" as compared to
"doing the work" was the other great lesson learned.
In the past few weeks, it has been amazing how many
people have approached me about HT instead of me
approaching them just following this tip. I have
been more energetic (lesson from week one on how
important self care is) which has caught the eye of
many. This alone has allowed me to present my daily
testimonial to at least a dozen people.
Finally, all of the tips and techniques that you
spoke of in regards to getting in front of larger
groups and not having the fear to speak will be
coming into play for me over the next month. The
owner of the current company I work for hosts a
large pro golf tournament ever year for which we
have a marketing booth set up. In past years, I
simply spoke about Assisted Living, what it means,
and what we as a society need to do to support our
seniors. This year, I am actually setting up a table
and offering "glimpses" of healing touch to anyone
visiting the booth. (this may be something as simple
as a pendulum scan or a quick chakra connection...
something to keep them coming back) I will also be
offering a drawing for a free full session. I will
have this opportunity again at our local Business
Expo in October and again, even though I am going
there to promote our Assisted Living...Healing Touch
is now a large part of our Community's efforts to
keep our residents stronger, healthier, and less
reliant on medications. I will be offering the same
"mini sessions" there as well.
I can't thank you enough for all that I have gleaned
from these sessions and how I now feel that not only
will I be successful when it comes time to step out
on my own (in about a year), but how great I feel
about the client base I will be building over the
year while serving the residents of our Assisted
Living to live more healthier "healing touched"

of the others that you have touched through this

niche. It is great to have the interaction with

I came in the 3rd week when you gave many ways of
drumming up business. I too am with Young Living
Essential Oils which I use personally, but am also
open to recruiting others which I have done. I also

up and going again since my Mom died. You have been
an inspiration to me and I plan to use many of your
suggestions to pick up clients, but of course, I
expect word of mouth will work wonders also. I
enjoyed your course so much and feel it is so
beneficial. I would suggest it to all. Thank you so
much. Many blessings to you.
I thoroughly enjoyed the class and would recommend
it to anyone struggling with themselves trying to

I do and it has made a difference to get involved

I discovered Healing Touch when my infant daughter,
Kendra was hospitalized due to a heart defect and
needed a heart transplant. A nurse was doing Healing
Touch on her and showed me some techniques I could
use on her myself. Ultimately when I discovered that
I could become a practitioner as a lay person, I
went through the HT program and became certified.
Because of the emotional traumatic effects I
experienced with my daughter's situation, it has
been very difficult for me over the years (I became
certified in 1998) to maintain a focus in order to
build a successful business, and in 2003 it was
compounded by Kendra having a serious rejection
episode that required a second heart transplant. It
was another year and a half before I felt ready to
try and do my Healing Touch work again for the

we stayed at Ronald McDonald House for 2 months. I
have been volunteering at an oncology center now for
2 and a half years.
While I have taken many courses through the Healing
Touch program on marketing and building a holistic
practice, I have not felt that I have been able to
implement the information I have gained. Your course
offered new perspective on topics I was already
familiar with but unable to relate to such as how
you can see yourself as the "product" you are
selling, having a particular niche, and creating
Although I have not begun to create any speaking
opportunities yet or even begun any of the
assignments you gave, I have come to realize that I
need to "clean house" so to speak, eliminate all the
chaos of many unfinished projects and ideas before I
can create a clear focus and begin the steps I now
know I can take to build a clientele.
I already know from the experiences with my oncology
patients that my work has been very valuable, and
that I indeed have become the expert in my field. I
have the experience of being a care-giver and can
relate to the patients' frustrations with the lack
of care and compassion for their need to be valued
as a whole person.
So my testimonial is to declare that I have begun
the process of moving forward with your help, with
I have already felt the energy shift in that I
received a call from 2 people within a week
requesting to learn Reiki. While I hadn't thought
about doing this, as I generally have preferred to
do HT, I was INSPIRED by the second caller who told
me that after speaking with me for only a couple
minutes, she didn't really want to be referred to
someone else as she liked my energy and was willing
to wait for me to set a date for my first class.
I am now setting goals and doing something small
every day to reach those goals.

tremendous blessing in starting our first practice

I can't thank you enough for offering this free
telewebinar. The amount of information gleaned from
it was priceless. I feel like one of those
MasterCard commercials. Anyway, I also wanted to
mention the flexibility that you allowed. I am often
a hands on learner and take a great deal of notes,
but allowing us the extra time to review the
sessions has been wonderful for me. No matter how
well we plan sometimes life takes over and the
session was interrupted.
The most powerful lesson I learned from this was
letting loose the gift I had inside myself. I have
always been so worried about how to "sell myself".
It really comes down to believing in what you're
doing and it sells itself. Your practical tips for
how to get over this fear were common sense, but the
fact that you recognized them and others shared the
same fear gave me what I needed to get over it.
I enjoyed listening to your classes. I usually
couldn't make the call so I would hurry home from
work the next day and listen to the recordings. It
has given me some good advice as to how to start my
Reiki Practice. I have already started putting some
of the ideas into practice. Looking forward to a
full schedule of clients.
Thanks Marilee for your time to do this for us. I
greatly appreciate it.

Marilee Tolen is a great instructor. She has
mastery of course material and conveys clarity and
confidence in her presentation. I particularly
appreciate her holistic approach.
I really enjoyed the teleseminars. The information
and the topics that were covered were extremely
informative and helpful.
I really appreciated the convenience of listening on
the phone and my computer and the timeframe of the
calls. It was also great to be able to listen to the
calls that I missed at a later date.
You provided so much helpful information about how
to attract clients and what to do once you get them.
You gave so many tips on ways to build your client
base, without spending any money.
I was really encouraged by what you said about
overcoming the fear that we have about sharing our
products and services and the importance of doing
I am really encouraged & motivated to try some of
the techniques that you suggested. I am very excited
to try setting up a blog.
I really enjoyed the seminars because there was a
lot of helpful information given, but it was easy to
follow and understand. It was really helpful that
you shared your own experiences and what worked for
My husband was listening as well and mentioned that
you have a very relaxing voice.
Thank you so much for taking the time to share this
valuable, helpful information and to offer it free

Some weeks ago I was reading the Home Spa Lady's
Tips of the week, and Marilee was offering her next
Free Teleseminar Series "Eight Steps to Kick Start
Your Practice" and it kick me! The words resonate
inside of my head, and I registered almost the last
day. I am getting ready to start my practice, I was
already doing some of the steps that she mention,
and what was missing, was the Structure, and that is
what I am learning now, something so important to
success Structure! Now I have it, all the
information together step by step and free!
Thanks Marilee for giving me so timely what I
needed, and opening the possibility to go beyond my
I wish to say Thank You so much for sharing your
expertise with such enthusiasm. There were many
suggestions throughout the course that have inspired
me to change the words to market myself and promote
Healing Touch. You have reignited my passion.
Thank you, Thank You.
I found this class inspiring. It was good to know
that there are other people out there starting up
their practices. It helped me be aware of all the
gifts I have to offer and plan strategies to share

Terrific teleclass again Marilee! Thanks so much for
sharing your expertise with us, it gave me and
people in my group some great ideas on ways to
promote our businesses.
The information you provide is so timely and can be
applied immediately. You explain everything so well
that it enabled us to jump right in and get things
Thanks so much for making your teleclasses so
affordable and information packed.
Thank you for all your practical tips and
encouragement giving a boost to my confidence and
taking the dread and complication out of marketing.
I looked forward to every class and found new
insight that I will be applying immediately to my
practice. Most of all thank you for your passion and
spirit in sharing this valuable information.

The format of structured lecture mixed with your
suggestions and comments on our questions worked
very well. Your teleseminar helped me to re-frame
how I think about selling myself to a target market.
It moved me towards a paradigm shift - to an
empowered attitude in interacting with the public
that focuses on my Self as product, the importance
of my personal stories, and the innumerable benefits
that I provide to my clients and community as a
compassionate and loving healer. Thank you!

Marilee Tolen's wealth of experience, knowledge,
extraordinary clarity and passion presented in her
"8 Steps to Kick Start Your Practice" is a BRILLIANT
BLUEPRINT for setting up a successful holistic
I believe that Marilee's information is 'a must
have' for those choosing to improve their existing
practices as well. She has simplified the process.
This it IT.
Here is a toast to everyone's success!
Thank you so much for your 8 Steps To Kick Start

invaluable service with lots of information that has
helped me in my business. I am a start up business
and could not have afforded the expense of a
I took numerous notes and hope to incorporate them
as I progress in my business.
Thank you so much for painting the BIG PICTURE and
then breaking it into manageable pieces. It has been
my intent for over 3 years now to create 'a
presence' by offering the gift of energy medicine to
family and friends. But that's as far as it got...I
have done exchanges to be able to compare what I
offer to what others offer [and to grow a network of
healers from which we can refer each other]. I've
done and redone business cards and pamphlets...I
even got laid off - not in the plan - and became
more available but I've held back from stepping out,
because it all seemed too overwhelming to go from a
structured job to flexible 'I create the schedule'
hours...It was like saying 'Okay, World I'm here!'
without turning on the volume.
I have now joined 2 networking groups, have written
a mission statement, begun work on my
'story/biography'...I'm asking myself the hard
questions: What do I REALLY want to do and with
I'm starting to think by way of a plan with long and
short term goals...and I have created a space in my
home for people to come [not abandoning the
traveling table yet though!]
Marilee, Thank you so much for your enthusiasm and
continuous inspiration. I have enjoyed watching your
methods of informing step by step, providing access
[phone AND computer], showing by example what a tool
technology can be. I watched how you met us at every
turn - including a chance to hear it again [which
was helpful for me having missed the beginnings a
couple times.] I am amazed and encouraged that what
I choose to give to the world CAN BE DONE - by ME!!!
You have provided the extra nudge for me to keep
going! Remembering it is a process, to have patience
with myself and to challenge myself to step
ever-so-slightly out of my comfort zone and create a
new boundary to my comfort zone. It really does get
easier! Success encourages success.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.

The 8 steps class was so beneficial. It stimulated
so many wonderful approaches to think about and use
in jump starting a practice that I am literally
jumping for joy!
The way you have presented “How to overcome monetary
obstacles”, is a key factor in why many of us give
up. After convention I intend to go out and sell
myself with the conviction that “I am an expert” as
you have pointed out. You have given me the impetus
to soar to greater heights and I thank you from the
bottom of my heart. In peace and love, Freya Nanfra

This was a great class with tons of useful
information! I learned new ways to market myself
that don't require $$$. It was just what I needed to
get my practice going. The teleseminar format is
excellent, an ideal way to take a class. Thanks so
much for doing this Marilee!
I feel that I may not be at the same place as many
of the 'experts' you have just trained.
I would love to start a business right now with all
that I have learned.
I have become an 'expert' in the area of healing
with herbs while living here in the Philippines!
However, living in the Philippines is also what is
holding me back from starting a business. A
foreigner has many restrictions on setting up a
business here, so I just have to wait until I move
back to the US in 3 years!
I do appreciate so much what I have learned in the 4
weeks of sessions you have so generously shared with
us. Thank you for your generous spirit of helping
others get going in their area of expertise.
Thanks so much for sharing your "8 Steps To Kick
Start Your Practice" with us! These sessions were a
wonderful energetic mode of sharing that I needed to
hear. Your webcast made it really convenient for me
I truly appreciate your sharing and send you light
Marilee's "8 Steps To Kick Start Your Practice"
course was unbelievably informative - beyond my
expectations. It was so timely in its arrival,
just as I was putting together a brochure, and so I
was able to incorporate a few valuable tips she had.
Being able to listen at home, on my own schedule,
feeling great that I was receiving continued
education for my
work - and all this for FREE!! - it was an
incredible gift. Thank you, Marilee, for your
generosity, and for being such an amazing role model
I want to follow.

Wow! Really helped me to organize my thoughts and
"actions needed" for when I will be ready to start
my own business. I am not quite there yet, but this
course helped motivate me to "get going." Great
East Hampton, NY
The 8 steps teleseminar has given me renewed
enthusiasm and focus for my business and holistic
practice. Everything was presented in such a heart
felt and concise manner. You make it so easy. I now
have the focus and tools to implement my new
marketing plan and I am so excited. I had been
struggling for the last 2 years to get anything on
paper and feel that it was inspired action. I am so
grateful. Most folks promise things on their "free
webcasts", and there is very little tangible
material to put into use. Not true here. There is so
much material for me to implement into my practice
and marketing materials. Thanks again!

This format is so flexible - to either listen at the
"real time" or to listen when it is more convenient
- including listening again to pick up key points.
Your tips on getting/ keeping clients are creative
and show that you are experienced in doing a variety
of things to grow your business.
Looking forward to putting a number of these ideas

This was an awesome class. You addressed so many
issues that are key to success. Also, you covered
many reasons why we hang ourselves up...... wow....

Thanks so much! I look forward to more classes with
Santa Fe, NM
I absolutely loved this course. Over the years I
have heard others speak on ways to build a practice,
but this was far and away the best. Most of the
others seemed to hit on one or two of the topics you
covered, but this course was so complete. Instead
of telling of us to do this, this and this, you gave
the pros and cons of the options so that we can
decide what is best for us. It was not only 'food
for thought', even better yet, it was 'food for
action'. I am sure in the near future you will be
hearing from many of the people who tuned in telling
you how their practices have grown...all they have
to do is to put into practice what you have shared
with us. Thank you so much for sharing the
information with us.

Marilee combined information found through years of
my own research into a four week study. This
provided a wonderful reminder and great
encouragement to me. I no longer have to remember
all of my references in order to remind myself, and

ideas which are now helping me in my quest to a
better business. Thank you Marilee!

Wow. I knew this course would be good, but it was so
much more than that. The most important thing I
learned was that there are others out there who are
doing what I am doing, and they have figured many

with; Marilee added so many more, and put it all

8 Steps To kickstart Your Practice is the absolute
best teleseminar I've attended!
Marilee is genuine and informative. She is stays on
task and on-time. I really appreciate that because
other teleseminars I've attended, keep you way over
the time and we are all busy and block out a certain
amount of time for the class.
I would love to see an advanced class or
continuation class for maybe another four weeks.
