“Rachel’s book is a treasure trove of useful information for new members of the wellness small business community. Starting a business is a bit like becoming a parent for the first time… if you knew how much work was required upfront, you might run screaming in the opposite direction! Health and Wellness Biz 101 breaks each aspect of organizing your business into digestible tasks with clear instructions (and workbook pages to craft your unique vision). Whether your new business will serve as your paycheck, your passion, or both- Rachel’s guidebook should be required reading.” – Sandy, yoga studio owner of 13 years
