Our HTPA Monthly Business Support Calls are focusing on Professional Development for September, October and November 2011. We interviewed Janna Moll, HTCI on our Sept. 13, 2011 call concerning the Role of Mentorship in Professional Development. During the call Janna gave us numerous tips on how we can raise our personal professional image and thus in turn raise our profession of Energy Medicine (EM) practice as well as how we can introduce EM and Healing Touch to professionals in our local communities. Janna brings her experience of many years of working with professionals into every discussion/interview she conducts. As she is always so generous, she has given us two handouts to share with all who would like to introduce Energy Medicine and/or Healing Touch to professionals. CLICK HERE to receive her handouts. For more information about the Role of Mentorship in your HT Professional Development you can listen to the recording of Janna’s Interview (CLICK HERE)

During our HTPA Business Support “Live” Interview with Nancy Strick, RN, HTCP/I on Oct. 12, 2010, Nancy shared that the day before she had been interviewed by a local T.V. Station in her area of Hudson, OH. Nancy told us that because of a small newspaper announcement her coordinator had placed for her in a local paper (for an upcoming class) that a T.V. News reporter had seen, she rec’d a call from the reporter who requested the interview. Follow this link to view the interview, it’s terrific!

We asked Nancy if she would share the Press Release she used and she has shared two samples (one is for a Class announcement and the other for an Intro) – if you use these examples to develop your own, you might attract a local news reporter too.

Also, here is a book Nancy recommends to help you develop your private practice: Attracting Perfect Customers: The Power of Strategic Synchronicity by Stacey Hall & Jan Brogniez, 2001, Berrett-Koehler Publishers, Inc. San Francisco
