One of the most challenging aspects of offering mindfulness programs isn’t establishing a foundational meditation practice, or even progressing through years of training to become a qualified teacher, however difficult those may be. Rather, it’s what you’re not taught in teacher training: the business part. How do you set up a website if you’re not particularly tech savvy? Or scheduling your classes, or accept payments? These tasks are more than a little daunting if you don’t have experience with them. Today’s guests may have an answer for you.
Alex Haley is a mindfulness teacher and co-founder of OfferingTree, an online platform for wellness professionals. He hopes that OfferingTree’s website features, scheduling tools and payment functionality will help others to thrive and provide everyone with greater access to wellness.
