Many women dream of having their own sustainable “wellness” business. Some have invested thousands of dollars and hundreds of hours into training in various fields of expertise (yoga, movement, massage, healing, coaching, etc), but still struggle to support themselves financially.
Are you one of these women? Do you have that dream, or have you struggled to make that dream a reality?
Or have you been working in this field for years, running your own business as a solopreneur and living your life/managing your finances month to month, but dream of creating more financial flexibility and freedom?
Have you even started to feel more drained and less passionate about your business because you spend more time on the tasks you dislike than on the things you love to do, the things that got you into this field in the first place?
It's extremely hard to create and grow a business when you don’t have the roots or foundation to support your growth!
When you teach your classes or workshops, run your events and retreats, or lead one-on-one sessions, you are operating from your zone of genius. This is where you shine – and where you have so much goodness to offer to the world!
But when it comes to managing your finances, creating an efficient daily schedule, discerning what projects to take on, marketing and promoting your services or products, selling what you offer to potential clients, or doing the other administrative tasks that your business involves… you struggle.
When you drain yourself trying to figure out the things you don’t understand or you avoid doing them altogether, you leave your zone of genius and stop being rooted – which makes it hard for you and your business to grow!
This is why Root to Rise Coaching was created– a program designed to help you create the roots you need to thrive in your wellness business! Developing structure and organization in your business doesn’t have to be so hard!
This is a gratitude shout out because not everyone out there has the support, mentorship, and love that they need and deserve to make mega shifts in their life and business. To remember not to play small because they, by their cosmic nature, are HUGE. To remember that there is hustle, and there is also flow and to do them both, lovingly.Megan Marie Gates, Yoga Teacher, Sound Healer, and Artist – Toronto/Prince Edward County
Thanks to my business coach Michael Eisen, who has absolutely, completely, and utterly changed the way I look at things, I have stopped playing small in my business and found a natural balance between my hustle and flow. Whether it was focusing on how to create an authentic, thriving and passionate life and business, or how to dance with the fears and struggles of being an artist/healer/teacher and figuring out how to bring more structure to my business, his coaching was unreal and yet so, totally REAL.
Michael, everyone who is a spirit based worker needs to work with you. You are a wonderful man and I am wholly grateful to your inspiring work. Thank you for holding down the business fort for us mystics so we can learn how to become more productive and more loving to ourselves and our community. Deep, huge bows to you.
When you create the roots, then you can rise. Some of the “fruits of your labor” from our work together can be….
That’s where I can help! Root to Rise coaching works at your pace, around your schedule, as the program is customized to where you currently are in your life and business.
Maybe you already have clients, teach classes, run workshops, or even offer training programs and want help taking your impact and income to the next level; maybe you're just getting started with an idea and vision and you need help getting it off the ground and into action; or maybe you're somewhere in between – wherever you are, I’m your guy!
Most importantly, I bring a balanced approach to the table. I believe that it is vital for you as a woman to lead your business from your feminine, right-brain, creative energy. Far too often I see solopreneurs or aspiring solopreneurs trying to force things to happen from their masculine energy and their right brain – which isn't satisfying and isn’t authentic. With that said, I also believe you need to balance your right by engaging your left in ways that feel good and ground you. I can help you learn how to create balance between your masculine and feminine when it comes to the tasks involved in running your business.
As a man who has done a considerable amount of personal growth work, I understand the need to find balance between both my left and right, and I know the balance that is required to run a successful business. After all, it isn’t always about what you are doing or how much you are doing; it's more about the energy and intention behind the doing. Although counter-intuitive at times, there is great value in BEING more and DOING less.
Michael has been an incredible coach for me for a number of reasons. As an intuitive coach and healer myself, I find his masculine approach of action taking, financial focus, and business strategy to be the missing ingredient that I had been needing in order to reach the success I am at now. Additionally, and for me most importantly, his ability to maintain the masculine focus and direction while staying heart centered and highly intuitive is what makes him incredibly skilled at working with women in the healing realm.Maggie Kay, Life Coach, Yoga Teacher, Speaker and Workshop Facilitator – Los Angeles
When I started working with him I had 0 clients and had given 0 group classes. Now, just 3 months into working with him, I have 3 regular coaching clients and have given a talk or workshop twice per month for the last 2.5 months. My whole business has transformed as well as my own self-awareness. Thank you Michael for all that you are and do for the world.
When I graduated from McGill University with a business degree, I had a strong vision and desire to make people's lives better. I felt drawn to those who were struggling – I wanted to run to them and start helping.
Why, you ask? Because I went through those struggles myself! The first 18 years of my life were full of challenges. I was bullied frequently at school; was incredibly sensitive; suffered from low self-esteem; had issues with stress, anxiety, and depression; and even developed a stomach sickness. Only one thing got me through it: after I had a breakdown at 19 years old, I was introduced to some amazing tools and strategies rooted in meditation and mindfulness – rewiring my thoughts and beliefs, how to feel and express my emotions, and how to shift my perspective. I was able to turn my life around at the age of 19, and by the time I graduated from McGill, I realized that I didn’t want to follow the standard path that many do: work my hardest to make somebody else richer, doing a job that paid in money but not in meaning. There had to be more to life than that! But because I didn’t know what to do or where to begin, I took the first job offer I got and went to work in the corporate world.
It took me a few years and various different jobs before I realized I was meant to be my own boss. I had a vision of creating an organization that could provide wellness training programs and resources to youth who struggled mentally, emotionally, and physically.
I wanted to create my own path and my own business, but didn’t know where to begin!
So I took what I learned from my business degree, coupled with all the tools and strategies I learned about myself from my amazing Life Coach, who happens to be my father, and went to work on figuring out how I could create a business based on helping others overcome the challenges I went through.
At age 25 I launched my business, the Youth Wellness Network, and with the right balance of passion, ambition, and effort combined with my commitment to learning and an unwavering trust and faith that something bigger than me was guiding me and had my back, the business took off faster than I could have imagined. Within 3 years I went from making no money to making six figures doing what I love.
For the first four years I ran YWN mostly on my own. I was a solopreneur with visions of making the jump to entrepreneur, but had to master all aspects of my business first. After successfully doing so – using the same techniques I'll share with you – my business is growing and I am now learning how to make the jump from successful solopreneuer to entrepreneur.
Not only have I done this for myself, but I have also helped my wife, Hillary Faye, build her yoga and healing business from the ground up. For years she struggled to get students to her yoga classes and to make a living doing what she loved . Today she's an international yoga teacher, is the creator of the Awaken Love yoga teacher training, is a Reiki Masters Teacher, has taught at huge platforms including the Toronto Yoga Conference, is a Lole Ambassador, and more!
For anyone who is looking to really take their entrepreneurial endeavours to the next level or just wants to get some of their personal creations & budgeting in order. I highly recommend you hire Michael Eisen as your business coach. Michael is a conscious and loving guide who has been instrumental in helping me gain clarity on all aspects of my heart-centred business from creative pursuits, networking, marketing, collaboration with others, to understanding my finances, budgeting, & taxes better - the list of what he helped me with was never-ending.Vanessa Faria, Soul Coach, Healing Arts Practitioner and Reiki Master, Toronto
What I love about Michael is that he's in touch with his feminine side enough to be really open and patient when we work together. He's basically the best person I know who can perfectly blend humour and enlightened positivity into one, especially when you're in the midst of stress or confusion. And he's grounded enough to really show you how it's all done with ease, grace & fun!
I've had lots of coaches in my life and I just LOVE Michael. He is both grounded and practical, and open and spiritual. He comes at a situation from both perspectives for the best solution. He is so real and has created his success in his own way. I respect this about him. He walks the talk. I saw immediate success from his suggestions and refer clients to him often.- Sarah Hauch , Spiritual Healer & Owner of Temple 23 Toronto
I hired Michael as my business coach because I was not sure how to use my life transformation experiences and spiritual studies to create a business. Each week we dived into the different aspects of my business creating more structure and organization and working on steps to take to increase my clients and expand my offerings. But things didn’t start to click until Michael helped me realize that it didn’t matter how much coaching I received, what stood in the way of my business growing was my mindset. It felt like every time I took a huge step forward something happened that caused a step back in the opposite direction Michael was able to show me my blind spots in a kind and gentle way, and helped bring them to the surface. He then led me through a process to re-wire my brain and create more supportive beliefs, and everything has changed since. It was not that I did not have the skills, or the studies, to be a successful solopreneur, it was that I was getting in my own way and didn’t realize it. I am more aligned with my message and comfortable sharing it. Michael’s process brought so much clarity and confidence back into my life and business. He was the perfect balance of caring and empowering while helping me to take action. I am forever grateful to Michael and my advice to you is to not waste your time doing this on your own, hire Michael and watch the magic happen.- Corrina Choe, Founder of Rock Your Soul Life Master
Working with Michael has taken me from idea overwhelm to creating and implementing a clear and logistical action plan. I'm feeling calm, energized and optimistic now that I have a plan and am moving forward with his helpful direction and guidance. My vision and expertise are being birthed in a new way thanks to Michael’s trustworthy insight and support.- Emily Cleland, Intuitive Healer & Mentor for Youth
No! I do specialize in working with women, and the program was created for and content designed for female solopreneurs/entrepreneurs in the wellness industry; however, I have worked with male clients before and will continue to do so. The men I work well with are typically more of the creative visionary type and right brain dominant, and I have had great results supporting them with the more practical aspects of their business. So although most of my clients are women and the program is catered towards women, in certain circumstances I will work with the conscious male solopreneur/entrepreneur as well.
Often when we are still in the idea/vision phase of starting a business, we think that we don’t need help until we actually start doing something with it. The catch is that it’s a lot easier to come up with the vision, and a lot more challenging to put that vision into action. (Imagine as an example that you wanted to make a movie. Getting an idea and writing the script would be the easy part! Raising money, hiring actors, scouting locations, finding a crew, and doing the filming – putting the vision into action – is the tough part. You might not even know where to start!) Without the proper support, it's easy to struggle through those initial phases and become overwhelmed by not knowing what to do or what order to do it in. Indeed, many people end up not DOING anything with their ideas/visions. They can sit idle for months or even years. (Maybe yours has!) That’s where this program can really bring your vision to life. I can help you sort through all your big ideas and create a practical action plan with step-by-step instructions on what to do and how to do it, and I can hold you accountable for taking those most important first steps. Rather than having to figure everything out on your own, you'll have my help to speed up the process significantly and get you to where you are earning income doing what you love with a lot less stress.
The first thing I want to say is that starting or expanding a business from a “lack” mindset or desperation to make money is one of the biggest reasons why many aren’t able to do it successfully. I always suggest that, when you are starting a business or trying to expand it, you have some form of stable income, even if it comes from a part-time job unrelated to your desired business or passion. This will allow you to have the cash flow you need to pay your bills and invest time and money into getting your business off the ground with the right energy. In this industry in particular, it is very important that your intention is rooted in service and helping others, and not just about possible dollars being earned. Your clients can tell if you are being authentic or if you are just after their money. With that said – I am 100% willing to work with you on a payment plan that feels good to you so that you can start or expand your business from abundant energy. Just email me about the payment process and we will figure something out that works!
Currently I am still looking into venues and cities to run both the introductory group workshop and the twelve-hour immersion. Email me if you are interested in either one of them and I can keep you in the loop on when dates/places have been finalized.
I will absolutely travel to your city/community to run the group workshops. Depending on how far you are from Toronto, I'll need a certain minimum number of participants to justify the travel. I already intend to run the workshops in the GTA and California in the near future, but if you are interested in bringing me to your community, just send me an email and we can figure out the details!
No, but you can! The reason I can’t guarantee any results is that a lot of it depends on what you do with what I teach you. Some of my clients see great results and some of them see simply amazing results – everyone is different! Depending on the package you sign up for, your results will vary accordingly. When you sign up for my program, I am in your corner one hundred percent. My support does not end in between sessions - you get access to constant email and text support seven days a week. I will do everything in my power to give you the tools, strategies, and action steps to increase your impact and income. Nothing would make me happier than hearing that you've used my tools and strategies to make a sustainable living doing what you love!
