Small Business Consultants Health, Wellness Expertise
You’re passionate about health and wellness.
Your customers likewise love your natural approach to disease prevention and health promotion.
Most of all, they love that you care about them – the whole them. An integrative health and wellness approach makes sense to you … and to them.
But you’re not an accountant. Certainly not an MBA. You’re an expert on your specific healthy products and services.
By listening to your clients and customers you’ve garnered ideas about how to expand your enterprise. But you lack the nuts and bolts expertise required to muscle up a formal business and marketing plan.
You need a coach, a guide, an expert who loves and understands the business side of things as much as you care about the health and wellness of your clients.
Health, Wellness Small Business, Start-Up Consultants
You’ve mastered the art of medicine. The art of growing organic products or natural healing remedies. But, alas, you never went to business school.
Spreadsheets, balance sheets, return on investment (ROI), outbound marketing. Business has a language all its own.
Business is not the native tongue of most counselors, therapists, physicians, organic farmers, inventors or health coaches. Learning this foreign language can feel like breathing water.
Let the It’s Only Natural team help you master business planning. We are creators. Divergent thinkers, intuitives, developers, and writers who’ve mastered the tough, nail-biting language of business by — as odd as this may sound — actually doing business

Complementary and Alternative Medicine Business Consultants
Traditional Healthcare Providers – MD’s
Patients today are clamoring for more natural, less toxic treatments.
Moreover, women show a strong demand for CAM across all age groups.
Aware of the surging demand for integrative and complementary medicine, It’s Only Natural consults with traditional doctors and surgeons (MD), as well as general practice MD’s.
We help Psychiatrists (MD’s) and Psychologists (PhD, PsyD, LCSW, Licensed Counselors) find and develop unique market niches.
We are eager to hear from traditional doctors and licensed medical providers seeking to invigorate their medical practices and clinics with a more holistic approach.
The It’s Only Natural coaching team helps traditional providers differentiate AND expand their medical practices – whether that be oncology or dentistry – in three ways.
- By hand-crafting your marketing message with an integrative, complementary medicine (CAM) pitch.
- By helping develop a professional holistic referral network.
- And by helping you identify and develop niche treatment plans and products that respond to high consumer demand.

Do I Need to Hire a Health and Wellness Business Plan Writer?
Maybe you don’t.
A few will say no. Some will say maybe.
We here at It’s Only Natural say … only if you want to significantly increase your chances of success.
In the end, a lot depends on your personality and training. Your appetite for risk.
>>> Hiking Au Natural
Not having a written business plan with a clear mission and path to profitability is a lot like setting out on a expedition without a map.
It can be done.
But when tools like maps, compasses, and emergency survival kits are readily available, why on earth would you hike out into the wilderness naked?
At least take sun shade, an energy bar or two.
>>> Stack the Deck in Your Favor
We believe in written business plans because we believe in taking every advantage to stack the deck in your favor.
A business and marketing plan won’t eliminate risk. But a good plan, coupled with a trained-in-the-trenches business start-up advisor, will significantly slash risk.
Moreover, a plan will help you prepare mentally and fiscally for the hurdles that line every path in the land of small business building.
A smart business plan will enable you to safely launch or develop new services, new treatments, new organic product lines, even new natural medical and wellness devices or apps.
>>> Pitch Outside Investors
In addition, a rock solid business plan will be critical if you aim to secure funding from someone other than family members.
Even if you’re family funded, a business plan is critical. It will help you involve your investors in the growth and expansion of your health and wellness enterprise.
>> > Conflict Resolution Planning
Plans should include written agreements to help resolve family squabbles and uncertainties as the business grows, and roles, responsibilities, and obligations shift.
Uncertainty over who holds what kind of shares and who’s entitled to what profits (or portions of the debt) as a business grows have ripped apart more than one company that otherwise seemed safely charted for success.
>>> Revitalize a Failing Business
If you already own a business, but it’s now growing — or worse still it’s in the ER panting for breath — a business plan will help you identify and slash wasteful overhead.
Business plan audits performed by an outside agency are idea ways to gain perspective during times of failure and crisis.
Simultaneously, plans can also shine light on which trails to take to test new, more lucrative, treatment packages or product lines.
>>> Mental and Fiscal Preparedness
A great business plan – the only type we develop here at It’s Only Natural – prepares you to meet challenges. It will shore up strengths, and weed out weaknesses, BEFORE you open for business and the expense meter begins to spin.
