STARTING A BUSINESS
EQUINE ASSISTED FIELD
~ What are the requirements to start an EA business~? An EA business needs a form and structure like any other business. Traditionally, therapuetic riding programs have chosen the non-profit structure. With the advent of equine assisted programs, and the team model of a therapist and horse specialist, a for profit business structure has been used. A for profit can be a sole proprietorship, partnership, an LLC or a corporation.

The Spirituality of Marketing – Practical Marketing Tips & Concise Ten Point Self Assessment Quiz from Jeanne Childs. Tape 60 min. $12.00
Marketing is a burdensome task for many people, yet it is not only a necessary part of being in business, but also an obligation when viewed in a spiritual context. Each of us has special assets that others of us need. Shift your perspective to real joy in sharing (not “selling”) those valuable assets. Begin with recognizing, honoring, and safeguarding your product. Competitors become “colleagues” instead of threats. The “target market” is others who need you. Stay connected to your soul while promoting your work to the world in this refreshing approach to a commercially-tainted topic.
