How can I best start a singing bowl and wellness retreat business? I am a reiki master(teaching reiki courses and providing healing session), singing bowl sound healing teacher (courses + healing session), breathwork teacher and retreat host (more immediate and recent income) with my yoga teacher partner. I have an English Degree and am multi lingual (English, Chinese, Cantonese, Swedish and a little French, German and Spanish). My working partner and I have also decided to create and publish an oracle deck together. It would be nice if some advice on how we could start making more income by attracting more people and getting more known by the locals can be given to us. Kindly let us know if you would require more information. I have 2 instagram that has got almost 1000 folowers (spiritual) and the other around 3000 (vegan) if they are helpful in anything at all.
I run partner dancing classes (such as salsa). We are based in Wellington. The classes and socials run from 1hr to 4 hours and people are bodily touching with their faces close (15cm). They would often dance with the same person for more than 15 mins in a session even if not continuously and swap partners after 1-4 dances. While I can get people to sign in for contact tracing, they come from a range of communities across the region and only get together for dancing events, so are not a natural community or bubble. We have been using hand sanitizer and we could wear masks, but I feel that in level 2 partner dancing should probably not go ahead. I have asked a medical specialist and she says no, but many others in the community want to go ahead. I know dance schools canoperate but get the feeling that’s only if people can remain 1m apart from each other. I’d really like some official guidance.
Hello, it looks like i will need to close my business down and i am very stressed. Where can i turn for support?
Do you have any mentor services available? I am in the health and insurance industry
Feeling overwhelmed Since the lockdown I have enjoyed the time at home but the return to work under level 2 is difficult as sales and customers visiting the store are way down, this is increased my anxiety level, not sleeping very well and having trouble focusing on tasks, and have some hard decisions to make regarding staff if sales continue this way. Where can I find help personally?
During Lockdown we have started an online Fitness business called Limitless – it is an online Athletic Strength & Conditioning Programme. We are both coaches and PT’s and recognising even coming out of this crisis – business is going to be extremely tough and very changed so want to build an online platform to reach a wider audience and one that can access our coaching without need for a gym. We are testing the concept for the next 4 weeks just using instagram and you tube content. We now need to build a website over the next 4 weeks and wondered if you could point us in the right direction of a company that can help us get this off the ground – one that might understand the type of content we will create and the industry we are in. Thankyou so much. Leanne Prichard
Hi.I need advice on streaming live workouts in a membership portal for clients.I have been using Facebook for live Nd then downloading the workouts and then uploading to Vimeo for posting and storing in a site for members.Im looking into ways I can just stream live in my website and have it stored automatically on the right page.I am a bit confused with the tech- do I buy a live stream function and embed link?When I go live in my software does it then go live in the website? How can I order the “look” of the page. Can you suggest some user friendly systems?It is quite expensive so I want to make sure I get the right service and software. Thanks.Another question is on marketing-
I really need some ideas to spark motivation with online marketing and to really take things to the next level. I feel as though I’m in a rut/funk and this past month of isolation has really affected my mood. What next steps could I consider to get things rolling again?

I am an acupuncturist and have not been able to return to work yet. Do you think I should be pencilling people in for appointments from 12th May, assuming that we will go to alert level 2? Do you think we will need to wear masks in our clinics under alert level 2? Staff and clients? If so, where can we get them from, as suppliers still seem to be completely sold out. Do you think locally-made fabric masks might be sufficient? So many questions! I’d really applreciate some answers if anyone knows anything.
