Join us for this 8-week intensive program to create your holistic business in style. 
























Because you want to have a full-time sustainable practice, business and/or co-business. 


With over 2 decades of experience in running my own practice (and 15 certifications plus an MBA), running/co-running centers, managing teams and projects in alternative health, and successfully assisting clients in creating their own sustainable holistic businesses - from acupuncturists to alternative schools to holistic retail businesses and e-businesses, I have a unique blend of business and holistic experience and a passion for teaching those in the holistic field how to take their heart-felt visions to sustainable reality. 


In the world of holistic medicine, those practitioners that succeed aren't just good at what they do, they are great at running their practice in a sustainable way that supports them spending time doing what they do best, their soul's work.







My name is Jenifer Shapiro and I run the Empowerment Centre with offices in New York, Pennsylvania and California.


I have worked in the alternative medicine field for 2 decades. I hold over 15 certifications in everything from massage and craniosacral therapy to NLP, classical yoga and clinical homeopathy. I also hold an MBA and a degree in Philosophy from two of the top schools in the world Ė NYU and The American Graduate School of Intl Mgmt.


Iíve worked with Fortune 50 companies, taught for top universities and worked with thousands of clients and students integrating holistic health and mind-body therapies with solid business acumen for longer than the term holistic business has been around.


This course is a culmination of all of my experience with the heart and soul of what it means to be a holistic practitioner. While there are other courses that call themselves Ďholistic businessí there are few with the training, experience and successful clients to show that they actually know what that means.

This program is for professionals ready to start creating and/or reinventing their businesses.  This course is for all levels of holistic consciousness and for new and seasoned entrepreneurs.  While those considering a new  business will find benefit, I find that truly experiencing this course requires a passion for your work. 


Holistic not only means creating a whole business it also means a business that integrates a clear vision and the whole of your personal situation. For example, Iíve had students who were single mothers creating jewelry businesses from their homes and Iíve had seasoned wellness center owners creating education camps.


Iíve utilized my NLP background to help all students find their unique way of incorporating this course into their lifeís work and personal path.


The best results over 12 years of teaching this course have come from those who are ready to jump in, and usually, that means those ready to actually build a business, or recreate it. 


For those more interested in clarifying their visions first, see my Inner Manifesting courses.









First and foremost, my experience and 10+ years of teaching this course to large and small groups makes this different.  You arenít getting a new teacher but a seasoned trainer with proven track record of successful students/clients.




In order to ensure my students get the most of the course, I take the time to get to know YOU as well Ė this is unusual for a business course but a holistic business course should take the studentís backgroundís into account.  If I have a course where all students are new to creating a business, Iím going to offer some different information.  To not tailor this course would be a waste of your time and I donít waste time.




I am passionate about this course and I believe that helping holistic practitioners and entrepreneurs to manifest their lifeís work is a bit part of MY lifeís work. 


For more on how passionate I am about manifesting, see my book on the topic here:








In this program you will learn the following:


Week 1:  The Decision to Create a Holistic Business and Business Structure


Learn about how to decide if you want to begin a holistic business, the questions to ask yourself and understand the commitment necessary.  You will also learn about different options for your business structure, and how to find the resources you need to create a solid holistic business.


Week 2:  Creating Your Vision


Visioning your business is the key to any successful business, especially a holistic one.  Learn proven strategies for creating and manifesting your holistic vision.  Integrative alternative and proven business methods will be drawn upon.


Week 3:  Creating Your Mission Statements


Your mission is what will drive you to complete all that you need to in manifesting a solid, sustainable business.  We will work through a step by step method for creating your mission statements and solidifying your inner platform of resilience for creating your business.


Week 4:  Understanding Your Clients


The next step now that you have manifested your business structure and vision/mission is to take a look at your clients.  It is critical in any business to walk through a client assessment process as we will do effectively in this course. 


Week 5:  Being an Entrepreneur


This course will be a primer for new and seasoned entrepreneurs to look at what it is to be an entrepreneur and how to be an effective one who works with strong values and integrity.  We will also explore the phases of entrepreneurship to prepare you for running an effective business and preparing you for how an entrepreneur should and does work most efficiently.


Week 6:  Being a Holistic Entrepreneur


A holistic entrepreneur differs in two key points which we will discuss and master in this segment.  Integrating these holistic and mastery skills will prepare you and take you a step up faster and easier.  This course also utilizes proven tools for keeping yourself emotionally centered and clear during your creation process.


Week 7:  Strategies and Boundaries in Working with Clients


Once you are clear on your client goals, you can look at how you wish to work with your clients, and how you don't.  This week will help you to structure your interaction with clients, your marketing programs and your personal schedule to most effectively use your skills to attract and keep your best clients.


Week 8:  Inner and Outer Sustainability in Holistic Entrepreneurship


Inner sustainability is critical for any business.  Inner sustainability means creating a clear foundation for yourself and your business so that you remain in the driver's seat without missing the clear messages from your clients and your business itself when there is a need to change or re-strategize to keep your business moving forward financially and as your vision and/or re-vision dictates.


Outer sustainability looks at the impact your business has in the larger picture and how to have the greatest impact you can in a healthy, sustainable format.  This is a powerful note to complete the program on that will offer you creative energy to continue after the program is completed.


Note:  There will be work to do between classes in a structured, clear format to get you and your business moving quickly and effectively to the next level and ensure you are prepared and ready to move forward each week.







Each participant that wishes to receive certification will have a weekly assignment to hand in that covers the topics from that week in a clear and critical manner.  At the end of the program, there will be an additional question and answer assignment geared to offer you an additional document as a foundation for your business. You will have two weeks after the class completes to complete your certification requirements.







Is this program only for those in the holistic field?


No, this program is for anyone interested in utilizing proven business, coaching and holistic methods for creating their business.  I believe in the methods of Florence Scovel-Shinn, Napoleon Hill and others who teach us how to manifest what we want and those methods will be infused in this program.


What is Certification?


Certification is an option for those interested. 


To be certified as a holistic business means that you have stepped through this program and meet certain ethical and business criteria to be able to call yourself holistic either in methods, beliefs and or business structure.  To submit for certification, you will submit the exercises each week and complete a final two to three page write-up to be submitted at the end of the program (you will have 2 weeks to complete this).


If you have additional questions, please contact us.







The cost of this 8 week intensive is $395 / (discounts for early registration - see below) and that includes all materials, training and personalized emails (within reasonable limits to be discussed first class) during course.

Here's what previous students have said about Jenifer's course.


"Jenifer has this unique way of understanding both the business and the spiritual and integrating them for a measurable outcome."


Julia S., Erie, PA

Owner of a Successful Holistic Business!




"I was NOT a business person, until taking this course.  I had been afraid of creating my vision to have my own center, instead playing it safe renting space at centers that never really felt like me. 


After the course, I felt I had a new outlook on my life and my work. 


I'm finally clear on my vision for my own center and I'm manifesting it!  Jenifer is amazing herself, the course was beyond my dreams."


Maggie B., Tulsa, OK

New Business Owner!




"Seriously exceeded my expectations.  I've taken several so-called 'Holistic Business Courses' and they were all kinda 'eh'. 


But after hearing Jenifer speak at a Mind Body Spirit Expo I could tell her approach would be different.  She really offers so much more than you'd expect. 


Her 20 years of experience comes through with humor and grace. 


She's amazing and I'm so glad I took her course and am manifesting my vision for a holistic salon!"


Shayna P.

Buffalo Grove, IL

New Salon Owner!




"Jenifer is seriously the kindest woman I have ever met.  I missed the first class and was really lost with the materials.


  She spent time with me to get me up to speed and during the course, not only answered my questions but researched my area of expertise to see how she could best help me in finding information on competition, marketing opportunities, etc. 


I work with horses and those with developmental disabilities and Jenifer's ability to help me see a new vision was worth ten times the price of the class. 


Her commitment to her students was also exceptional.


I can't say enough good stuff about her."


Mary W.

Jackson, WY

Expanded her business and exceeded her expectations!




"At first I was a little unsure if the course was a fit for me.  I've read Jenifer's manifesting book and taken her visioning classes and was expecting a bit more of that sort of work.


Then I realized that her goal was to actually get her students manifesting in the real world and I fell into a grove. 


What an amazing class! 


Her ability to not only get you motivated and move you forward but also to listen to your fears and help you turn them around is amazing. 


Every word she spoke was solid and heartfelt. 


Take the class and run with it!"


Sara W.

Berwyn, PA

New Business Owner!







I would like you to be clear on what to expect from my course.


"This course is really about manifesting your life in the way you WANT.


Letting go of fear, clearing obstacles and seeing that you CAN manifest your vision by using the tools you learn.  This is all part of the process.


There is only so much time in the class so this course is all business with the essentials of marketing.  


In order to create a business, you need to have the basics clarified including your true vision, target market, your daily strategies, etc. or your marketing dollars will be completely wasted.


This course will exceed your expectations, and be fun on the way. 


Creating your passion should be fun!
