What Previous Participants Are Saying
"Bethany has been an amazing supervisor from the start, so I was confident starting Meaningful Buzz with her. The course exceeded my expectations and now I feel so much more comfortable marketing my private practice! Bethany will help you find your niche, develop a marketing strategy, and feel supported all along the process.”
"The Meaningful Buzz course provided me with the information and guidance I needed to confidently move forward with building my private practice. I highly recommend the course to any one seeking to break free of traditional capitalist business norms to instead rely on authentic marketing to connect with prospective clients and create meaningful change in their chosen communities. Bethany's perspective is a breath of fresh air and serves as a catalyst for innovative ideas. ”
"Bethany is inspiring, generous, gracious, and full of wisdom. Her content is illuminating. Be prepared to grow new neurons! I am a seasoned therapist who left a successful practice behind in another state. I found her class to be transformative on how to do this again with more focused purpose and efficiency.”

"This course helped jump start my confidence in marketing my new private practice. The small group environment and interactive, workshopping platform allowed me to think out loud and begin to craft marketing content that I can put into action going forward. This isn't just any old marketing, business course - Bethany's approach to marketing is underpinned by social work principles and commitment to ethical, anti-oppressive practice - which makes all the difference to me as I build my business. Highly recommend.”
