The Grow Course
get serious about finding more clients
Take action to build a sustainable practice.
You're highly trained. You want nothing more than to help.
And yet... clients aren't streaming through your doors.
You need enough clients to sustain yourself, but you don't want to resort to deception to find them.
I'm so glad you're here.
Finding clients can be fun, ethical and rewarding - for both you and the client.
Let's find clients together.
In the Grow course, we'll go over how you can find new clients and bring them into your practice.
Paying for the course will help to keep you accountable.
So will our weekly group meetings, and the homework that will be due.
You won't be alone in figuring all of this out.
Here's the deal, though.
There aren't any special secrets.
The key to finding more clients is getting clear on who you serve, finding out how to reach these people, and offering to help them.
From there, it's all about action.
Trying things. Some will work. Some won't.
You will make progress, and you will know what to do, and how to do it.
Here's something very important for you to know:
This course isn't about how to fill your practice in 2 months.
It usually takes 2-3 years of work and focused effort before your practice is running at full capacity. (Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.)
What you'll get instead is support, encouragement, and a specific plan to get the ball rolling and keep it moving.
If you start now, you'll be making progress toward that goal.
When you finish, you'll have momentum and a plan of action to keep growing and building your practice in a way that matches your own heart.
It is about you taking action and finding what works.
This isn't a buy-it-now, listen/watch/do later course (which too often means never, right?!).
Only sign up for this course if you're ready to jump in fully right away.
Not at some later time.
Not when things calm down.
Right now, in the middle of your messy life exactly as it is on day one of the course.
Only a small percentage of your time will be spent taking in information.
Most of your time and energy will be spent doing deep thinking, and - most of all - trying things.
You'll be out there doing hard things, and I'll be here to support you.
If you're ready to get serious (in a fun way), I hope I'll see you there.
Should you sign up for the course?
If these are true, then yes!
What is the Grow Course?
It's an 8-week online course + small group experience designed to help you find more clients.
This course is for people who are ready to take action. It's not the kind of thing that you read/watch and forget about. It won't work unless you implement, and I'm here to help you do just that with personalized attention and feedback.
Next Start Date: September 17, 2023
Live sessions Thursdays from 7-8 pm ET
Dates: 9/21, 9/28, 10/5, 10/12, (no class 10/19), 10/26, 11/2, 11/9, 11/16
Note that there will be a one-week break/catch-up week in the middle of the course.
Each week you'll get a short lesson to read/watch and digest. Some weeks, there will be optional readings and other resources to deepen the work. These are small nudges that prompt deep thinking.
weekly group sessions
We'll meet each week to go over questions, strategies, ideas and support. Because we keep the group small, your questions will be answered. Groups are magical. Trust me here.
You'll have tasks to do each week and homework to submit. You'll get personalized feedback and encouragement from Camille when you sign up for the Midi or Full plans (if you submit on time!).

Frequently asked questions
Yes! All three plans offer the option to pay in full or to choose 4 payments every 2 weeks. There is no additional charge for using a payment plan. The price is the same whether you pay in full or pay in installments. If you prefer an alternate payment schedule, just let me know.
Live sessions will take place on Thursdays from 7-8 pm ET. The course runs for 8 weeks, with a break/catch-up week half-way through.
All live sessions will be recorded, although you'll get the most out of the course if you can attend live.
I highly recommend the full plan, with weekly feedback on your homework. If you know you have a lot going on or tend to fall behind on assignments, the midi plan may be your best bet. I will note that the last time the course was taught almost everyone who signed up for the midi plan decided to upgrade to the full plan after the course started!
All pre-recorded videos include closed captioning. Transcripts are available upon request. Live sessions will use Zoom's live transcription feature, which is mostly-but-not-entirely accurate. Live session recordings will include closed captions based on the Zoom transcription. I believe the written aspects of the course are accessible via screen reader, although as this is the first time I'm offering the course we may need to make adjustments along the way.
I typically offer this course every fall. If you have a group of 5-10 people who are interested in taking it before then, please message me and we can discuss an earlier start date!
We usually start mid-September
No. You do not need to use social media in this course. If you choose to do so, that will work well with some of the strategies we discuss. And there are plenty of options for those who choose not to use social media as well!
These days, nothing is for sure! If you sign up for the course, but don't show up and do the work then you'll likely end up about where you started. If you show up every week, do the work, turn in the homework and jump in fully, I would be VERY surprised if you didn't find more clients. You'll have what you need to keep traveling in the right direction.

Feedback from previous students:
I have felt incredibly supported in understanding the practical steps involved in making my private practice successful. I learned so many ways to effectively reach people without being gimmicky or lacking integrity.
Register for the Grow course if you're a person who feels like they need to be held accountable, wants support from others, and are ready to take action! If you do the work in this course, you will succeed. The tools and knowledge provided in this course, as well as Camille's guidance, are truly invaluable.
I now have more clarity around what my mission, purpose, and niche are as a clinical herbalist. In letting people know what I do with more clarity, I have begun to find new clients.
Hi, I'm Camille Freeman (she/her).
I mentor highly-trained herbalists and nutritionists so they can get the clinical hours, practice-building skills, and advanced knowledge they need to be exceptional practitioners. I've been in practice as a licensed nutritionist and registered herbalist since 2006, working in OB/Gyn offices, a fertility clinic and private practice. I have a doctorate in clinical nutrition, and I'm also a professor in the Department of Nutrition and Herbal Medicine at the Maryland University of Integrative health. You can read more about me here.
