An Interview with Rick Wood and Melle Palmer– the Owners of the Brilliant New Website www.MyIntuitiveLifestyle.com.

                                                                                                By A.P. Morris

 

 

What is www.myintuitivelifestyle.com?

Rick:  “At first we wanted to describe it as an information collective, Melle came up with that name.  The word collective reminded me of big Russian peasants in a wheat field, so we decided to call it an ‘information cooperative.’  So we are going to stick with that until we actually find out what information cooperative  really means.”

Melle:  “Yes we like ‘information cooperative,’ because I hate the word directory.”

Why do you hate the word directory?

            Melle:  “Oh, because it reminds me of the 80’s.  Bad hair… big hair and big jewelry, when the internet first started and everything was a directory or a portal and I  just don’t like it.”

Ok, I think I forgot my original question.  Oh yeah, what is myintuitivelifestyle?

Rick:   “You should ask Melle. No, we are a cooperative of information about the holistic industry. It is a site that is designed for people to submit, rate & review their holistic businesses. Others can come in and rate & review & tweet. “

Melle:  “It is a great holistic community where people can come to find out about each other and make professional connections, rate and review services they’ve  received, and submit their own website, or you know hangout.”(Smile)

It seems that myintuitivelifestyle.com is for the holistic business.  Is it beneficial for the consumer as well?

Rick:  “Yes, because they can see the ratings and reviews of these practitioners and websites.”

Melle:  “Yes, It allows them to investigate businesses in a more comprehensive way.”

So what makes this website any different or better than any other directory or site like this out there?

Rick:  “The little tea cup with the leaf in it on the logo.”

Melle:  “I designed it so it’s not ugly.”

I agree they are great benefits … but why would a person want to take the time to add their business and website to myintuitivelifestyle?  What are they able to get with your site that may be better than another site?

            Melle:  “Well in a regular directory you can put in a link and a picture.  This has more of a community feel letting people interact with one another, investigate new businesses, and get more involved. You can add multiple photos, video, press releases, blogs and additional links.” 

Basically, it sounds like this allows you to have everything in one place.  So, what makes this better than is that you don’t have to link to your YouTube videos or to blogs, or press releases, you can put them all up in one place on myintuitivelifestyle?

            Rick:  “Yes.”

Melle:  “And it is all displayed in a professional and attractive manner.” (Smile)

What type of businesses can join www.myintuitivelifestyle.com?

Rick:  “As long they have a holistic slant.  You know anything from chiropractors, massage therapists, & spiritual authors to eco-friendly landscapers.  If you are in charge of making nuclear fuel rods, we probably wouldn’t let them on.”

Why is it beneficial for businesses to add themselves to this site?

Rick:  “As a holistic practitioner myself, this is a great way for someone starting out or ones that have been in business for years to have another avenue to get your site out there. It will get others to interact with your site and allow more people to see what you have to offer and spread it through the holistic internet                                  community.”

Is it easy or self-explanatory for someone to go and add their business to the site?  Do you want to give a brief overview of how it works?

            Rick:  “All you have to do is click ‘Add Listing’ in the top right hand corner, then follow the easy-to-use directions.”

Melle:  “First you have to get the mouse…put your hand on it.” (Laughter)

What made you create myintuitivelifestyle?  What was your inspiration?

Rick:  “Well, first of all, I liked the way Melle was able to take her website 1079creative and take something so utilitarian and turn it into something fun and easy to use.  Once I knew I had that, we put our minds together and created this. There was no site to go to where you could find businesses, look at their videos, press releases, blogs and rate & review them.”

Melle:  “I’ve found that there aren’t a lot of avenues for holistic practitioners to put out  information about themselves or for consumers to learn about holistic services.

Rick:  “This is a good way to help holistic practitioners market themselves.”

Anything else you’d like to add?

“It is our hope that myintuitivelifestyle helps the holistic practitioner share their talents and information.  Likewise, we hope that the consumer searching for holistic practitioners will find the information they are looking for.”

I know so many people who think they can do it alone
They isolate their heads and stay in their safety zones..

“I Know There’s an Answer” -The Beach Boys

I have a holistic business and website. I am always looking for ways to get the word out on my business. Yoga studios, Reiki Masters, Acupuncturists, and organic cafes- we all go through trying to promote our businesses.

So when I find a way…I like to share it.

There is a new directory that allows holistic practitioners to list their websites for free! (Love that  word). MyIntuitiveLifestyle.com calls itself an Information Co-operative that ” allows businesses to promote,view, …and gather resources.Acupuncture, massage, venues to Feng Shui, this site allows you to share with the holistic consumer using press releases,video, and so much more.”

I have found vegan restaurants,organic farming, psychics, and eco-friendly investing on MIL. The best part is the ability to rate,review, and tweet for each individual listing.

THE SITE IS FAIRLY NEW AND SUBMISSION IS FREE…

MIL will add a you tube clip to your listing free. (You may have to email them the link).

Share this post with all your “holistic business” friends..I hope this helps promote your business!

Have a great successful day!
