No other book talks about how to use Internet Marketing in your Spiritual Business and has two authors who are successful in selling, marketing and driving both traditional corporate and spiritual businesses.
Grow Your Spiritual Business explains the how to get your business started in terms that spiritual business practitioners can understand.
Lisa approaches marketing in a way that most spiritual business entrepreneurs can relate to using “Attract, Resonate and Synergize” to explain the sales and marketing process which avoids the pushy sales approach that can clash with sensitive readers.
Grow Your Spiritual Business takes a more down to earth and straightforward approach towards building businesses that makes this book easier to follow than other ‘spiritually based’ books on this topic.
Stop spinning your wheels with outdated marketing techniques. Grow Your Spiritual Business gives you all you need to make the most of your valuable time so you can get to work on what really matters, helping others.

What a great book! Having been a Psychic Medium and making my living this way for over 30 years, I can only say I wish I’d had this information a long time ago! The authors are clearly highly experienced and well equipped to give the newbies, and the old hands, plenty of guidance and advice about having a successful business in the New Age, holistic and Spiritual fields. I was particularly impressed by the advice about starting and keeping your database, as this is crucial to success. I didn’t start out right and have regretted it ever since! You’ll also find wonderful insight about marketing, using referrals and social media, and answers to questions about getting paid, creating your Facebook page and website, and so much more. The book is written in a very conversational style, as if you’re sitting and have a wonderful Q&A session with these professionals, and it’s easy to read and refer back to. I highly recommend this book! 5 Stars! Debra Crossman www.DebraJCrossmanPsychicMedium.com
Grow Your Spiritual Business is like hiring your own spiritual marketing consultant, helping you increase the spirit of life for yourself and others. Susan Anderson, author of Taming Your Outer Child
Operating a spiritual business is more about being of service to others and helping to make the world a better place rather than the bottom line. Cindy and Lisa bring up many helpful points. Lisa writes, “We must remember that in our service to others there is no competition because we are all working toward one goal: helping to make the world a better place.” And Cindy adds, “Other spiritual businesses are not your competition but your allies.” If you can only remember these wise words, you will be well on your way to success.

This book is a blessings to those who are both starting their business and as someone like me who has been in business for 16 years! My most treasured section of this book is the Mastering Time Management. Having gone from a two full time career (corporate position and massage practice) to being retired and doing my massage practice exclusively, it took some time to navigate the ins and outs. Had I read this at the beginning of that process, I sure would have done it differently! Scheduling time with myself is a key factor for not burning yourself out. Cindy and Lisa have great strategies and personal insights into all of the pitfall areas of business. This book is a MUST for anyone deciding to go into business for themselves or if already in business to enhance their current practices. Marti M, Massage Therapist

“Grow Your Spiritual Business; How To Build a Business in the Internet Age” by Cindy Griffith and Lisa K. PhD, is not only well written but because of the way the two authors speak to the reader and sometimes to each other keeps the topics moving along. The topics are well organized and give the beginner plenty to contemplate and the person who has been in business a long time some ideas that will stimulate new business. This book may have been written for those in the Spiritual business but can certainly pertain to any one in any business or starting up a business as long as they have “Spirit.” Georgia E. Warren, Metaphysical Times
