CONNECT WITH EXPERIENTIAL TRAININGS

The reality of relationship-based work, whether counseling, coaching, leading, or teaching, is that it isn't just what you know, it is how you embody what you know. Our trainings take your learning to the next level through highly experiential, hands-on work with horses. Relationship building is inherently nuanced - only through individual and group experience can one begin to fully understand the process of consciously building a relationship with a horse, from scratch. Through your own experience you will not just learn, but also feel, how to fully support your clients in building safe, connected, and healing relationships with horses and in their daily lives.

The Top 5 Things Every Equine Assisted Practice Needs to Know for Business Success
Wednesday, Dec 09th, 2020 | 4:30 PM to 5:30 PM Central Time

You have a vision for your future. One in which you build a successful business around Equine Assisted Therapy and Learning, that fulfills your desire to support people in need of healing. A business that provides consistent income to support you and your family, while you do what you love.  Shannon Knapp with Horse Sense of the Carolinas and Bettina Shultz-Jobe with Natural Lifemanship have found tremendous passion and success in helping equine-assisted practitioners just like YOU build businesses across the country and throughout the world!  Join them in this FREE webinar as they discuss the top five things you need to know to successfully build and run a business in this very unique field.

 

Shannon and Bettina will discuss the following during this webinar:

  1. The importance of having a working vision and mission and, most of all, a clear understanding of capacity and demand.
  2. The most important consideration for each business structure including for-profit and not-for-profit.
  3. The unique considerations of running your business on your personal property versus leasing space elsewhere.
  4. How to ensure safety and risk management for your business, your clients, your staff, and your facility. Participants will learn how to find good insurance coverage and how to reduce costs.
  5. The laws related to managing volunteers, staff, contract workers, hourly employees, and how this affects your business.

This webinar is free to attend live.  The recording will be available for one month at no cost before it becomes part of NL membership content.
