#12: Riley Rees, CEO/Founder of Sofia Health
In today’s episode Dianne speaks with Riley Rees, the founder and CEO of Sofia Health, an online health and wellness marketplace that is designed to connect individuals suffering from chronic conditions or looking for mental health support to holistic, complementary, alternative, and naturopathic providers. They talk about the partnership that NTI has with Sofia Heath and what a membership with Sofia Health can do for holistic health practitioners of all types. FYI— all graduates of NTI get a free 1 year membership on the platform!  They also discuss the gap in our health system that doesn't address our needs holistically: physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual which inspired Riley to build Sofia Health in the first place.   Sofia Health is a collection of practitioners who take a holistic approach to addressing an individual's health. Dianne and Riley talk about how to better reach clients as well as other strategies for practitioners to more easily market their business to their niche audience. If you’re just starting your own business or hate the marketing aspect of being an entrepreneur, this episode is for you! Check out Sofia Health today!
