A Full Clinic in 5 Months, Gainful Employment, & A Deeply Rooted Passion to Help Acupuncturists

Interview with Caroline Burdulis

I love speaking with Caroline. Her passion and the teacher inside her is always on auto-overdrive! She is so so giving and truly from the bottom of her heart just wants to help acupuncturists succeed and help more and more people. She has tried and true methods to help you build your practice, and makes an offer during this podcast that you don't want to miss out on!  It will be well worth your time to tune in.  ~ Spence

Professional Achievements
During Caroline’s 18 years of clinical experience, she founded 2 successful practices by developing a patient attraction system and a clinical model of excellence that grew her practice to 9 rooms with 3 full-time staff by the 4th year in a small, conservative city. This system was further refined, so that the second location was filled by the 5th month in a saturated market, for both she and her husband, Bryan Watrous, LAc, DiplOM working full-time.
After numerous requests to mentor new Acupuncturists, Bryan and Caroline founded their online mentoring and coaching business, Acupuncture Business Success System. Over the last 6 years, they’ve helped over 1000 acupuncturists in 42 countries grow their practice, many of whom have doubled and tripled their practice using this Success System.
