I sold my thriving business of 15 years recently, during the pandemic, and I could not have done it without the guidance and skills of Amanda Barp and Whole Life Practitioner.
As a small business owner of a well-regarded yoga center, I often found myself frantic and without the proper time, skills or tools to objectively manage my cashflow, understand my own overhead or even balance my own books. Somehow, the business was able to thrive on sheer force of will but when it came time to present it for sale, I was at a total loss about where to even begin the process.
Amanda stepped in with ease and was able to formulate spreadsheets that made sense of my P and L statements, cashflow and more. She was able to explain to me in a way that my own learning and cognitive setup could understand, exactly how and where I was earning money and exactly where I was losing it.
She helped me create month-by-month plans for the eight months leading up to offering it for sale, and saw me through to the very end with kindness and sensitivity for the emotional parts of the sale. She asked curious and contemplative questions about my goals, ideas and needs, and was incredibly responsive to the needs of my specific healing arts business and more importantly for me, to the deeply emotional nature of small business ownership and my own personal learning and cognitive style.
Whether you want to start a business, create business growth goals and meet them, understand how or why your business is not reaching its potential, or get a business ready for sale or expansion, I recommend Whole Life Practitioner without reservation.

Eric’s teaching is engaging, informative, and incredibly valuable for anyone trying to navigate the business details of starting, or managing a holistic health practice. He makes even the most overwhelming topics seem doable, and provides you with extensive resources to refer to. He is a supportive instructor who truly cares about helping practitioners succeed. Having the opportunity to learn from him really helped increase my confidence in starting my practice and I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to learn from him.
