Book writing and wellness biz tip: You don't need permission or approval...


Secret #6: T in Rockstar is for Tenacity

Rockstars have stick-to-it-ive-ness and find the adventure of working for themselves pretty darn thrilling.

Consider this...

You Don’t Need Permission

If you’re waiting for someone to give you permission, to approve of your ideas or to pick you out in a crowd, please understand: The world doesn’t work like that anymore. You don’t need anyone to anoint you before you step out into the world and share your expertise.

Understand that all the tools of the anointers of the past (talk show hosts, radio hosts, journalists, publishers and more), are now in your hands – and for free.

Once you understand that the new economy is about starting things, fixing things, creating things, and innovating, you can stop waiting for permission.

Get out there and start contributing to the solutions the world needs.

You can start by giving weekly presentations, writing regular blog posts, posting weekly videos on or even submiting articles to publications that reach your tribe.

Start somewhere.

Be consistent.

And become a go-to person for the answers people want and need.

About the Author and Karin Witzig Rozell has been teaching health and wellness professionals how to grow their business since 2003. She started as a nutrition counselor who knew a lot about nutrition, but not a whole lot about business and marketing. After learning some tough lessons she cracked the code and now her passion is transforming practitioners into profitable business owners who have a great quality of life too.

She is the founder of Wellness Professional Network, the go-to place for practitioners to learn the real-life business skills they didn’t teach in wellness school.

Karin is the author of The Fast Start to Clients Program and the forthcoming book: Rockstars of Wellness: Super Simple Ways to Stand Out, Get Hired and Become Irresistibly Relevant to Your Tribe.

Karin lives in Upstate New York, in the beautiful foothills of the Adirondacks, and enjoys working from home with her husband and son.
