Episode 89. How to Build a Profitable, Meaningful Mental Health Empire, with Soribel Martinez

You’re in for a real treat today, my friends.

You’ll hear from Soribel Martinez, a truly inspiring woman who has built a multi-million dollar private practice from the ground up.

Soribel shares the story of how she took the leap from full-time employment to start her own practice…. with a waitlist of 150 patients BEFORE she opened her doors!

Say whaaaaaa…?! 🤯

You’ll hear the exact strategies that she followed to launch and grow her practice. And most importantly, Soribel talks about the mindset that got her to where she is today - CEO, sought-after business coach, adjunct professor, published author, and philanthropist.

Honestly, there is so much wisdom here.

And the best part?

You already have everything you need inside you to replicate Soribel’s success.

In her own words;

You have a business that has the potential to change the world. Don’t let anyone tell you any other way. You have everything it takes. Go do it! Find the tools, read the books, and learn about how to become an entrepreneur.

And for your first task, listen to this episode where you’ll learn...

  • How to work with what you have in the beginning
  • The importance of staying in your zone of ‘genius’
