How to Start a Successful Alternative Healthcare Practice
By Tina Zion
I have been in private practice now for over 30 years. I began with zero clients, but I had a powerful yearning and felt driven to achieve two things in my life: 
             To work for myself
             To assist people at a profoundly deeper level of healing.

Every day people ask me how to make a living in the mind, body, spirit industry. There are so many amazing practitioners that just don't know how to get started and sustain a business.

  • 30 years successful and trusted evidential psychic medium, intuitive tarot reader, Shaman, and animal communicator
  • 8 years successful publisher - first Internet properties in the mind, body, spirit lanes, then my own tarot/oracle decks and books.

I hadn't really thought about joining the board until recently. I've been a member for many years and have always considered COVR a huge asset to industry members in the mind, body, spirit field.

I'd like to join the COVR Board of Directors and see if I can bring something new to the organization or at the very least assist in the continued support COVR offers to authors, retailers, suppliers, and other members of the MBS industry.
Tell us your experience working in the Mind/Body/Spirit industry:
I've been working in the Sales & Marketing department for over 21 years now at Inner Traditions, one of the oldest and largest publishers of the new age genre. From trade shows and social media to running Ads and making sales calls, I've had experience in almost every corner of sales & marketing in the MBS publishing world.
