Here’s How to End the Cycle of Spinning Your Wheels, Feeling like a Failure, Sensing That You’re Out of Alignment with Your True Calling, and Earning Less than You Deserve.
Dr. Lissa Rankin and Amy Ahlers are honored to introduce you to the completely revised & updated:
Visionary Ignition Switch: Fire Up Your Message, Money & Meaning In The World
The Go-To Business Program For Inspired Visionaries, Spiritual Visionaries, Healers, Coaches, Writers, Therapists, Workshop Leaders, Transformational Teachers, and Speakers Longing to Participate in a Shift in Human Consciousness.
The World Needs Your Vision & Your Unique Voice.
Getting Your Message Out There Doesn’t Have to Be a Struggle or Out of Integrity with Your Heart……
It’s time to SHINE and amplify your message, while staying in alignment
with your heart and soul!
Dear Fellow Inspiring Visionary (Yes YOU!),
You have a vision. You have a message. You have a CALLING. You are a Visionary ready to change the world. And business is your vehicle.
First off, can we celebrate with you for a moment? Please pat yourself on the back and allow your soul to soften as you simply own the truth. You ARE a visionary, even if you haven’t done anything to realize your vision yet.
How do you know you’ve found your calling?
33 Signs You’ve Found Your Calling
- You have an undeniable sense of mission and purpose that involves helping others transform, even if you have no clue how to describe exactly what that is.
- You’re scared sh*tless.
- You notice that the pieces of the puzzle of your life’s work all line up, and you can tell that The Universe has got your back.
- You feel like you’re on a rollercoaster (simultaneously exhilarated and nauseous).
- There’s a “plunk” sort of feeling in your gut that affirms that you’ve found your calling.

- You’re on a mission, and you know it.
- You don’t notice aches and pains the way you used to.

Yep. You’re a visionary, darling, on your own “hero’s journey”, as Joseph Campbell writes, and you must — simply must — heed the call.
Here’s the truth; most people wind up punching time cards, working in a cubicle, building white picket fences to separate themselves from the neighbors, watching mindless television, eating Cheetos, numbing out and slowly, sadly let go of the idea of ever making a real difference in the world.
Some people go to their deathbeds not knowing their calling or discovering their life purpose.
Many others hear the call but shy away from it, because answering a calling is some scary f*cking sh*t! (Yes, we visionaries do tend to have potty mouths because we’ve had to become pretty bad ass in order to slay all those dragons that show up when we’re on our own hero’s journey.)
But not you. You’re different. That’s why you’re reading this, because something in you knows there’s got to be a better way to live, thrive, and run a business. (And there is!)
Since you’re still reading, we’re assuming you’ve heard the call, answered the phone when it rang, and accepted the invitation to be a visionary healer who changes the world! That’s big stuff, my dear. Congratulations!
And yet maybe you are still struggling… struggling to leave your day job… to pay your bills… to make the difference you were born to make. Struggling to be enough for the ones you love when your dream is requiring so much of you.
Maybe you’re sick and tired of being one of the best kept secrets out there…
Sick and tired of feeling like there is some magic silver bullet that will take your business to the next level…
Sick and tired of feeling like you’re missing something…
Or just sick and tired of being sick and tired.
You YEARN to be a bestselling author, a speaker in front of hundreds or thousands lighting the room on fire, a visionary that is making well into 6 (or 7!) figures all while changing the world. And you’re tired of waiting… (we so get it!).
If your dream is aligned with the highest good, we trust that this vision IS possible for you, and manifesting your dreams and getting your message out into the world can be downright FUN. It is an adventure with ups and downs for sure, but it shouldn’t feel like you have to learn it all the hard way.
After all, you are a conscious, heart centered human being… you’re willing to take a STAND for your dreams and desires. You’re willing to say YES and put in the INSPIRED hours, not from the energy of “pushing,” “striving” or “making it happen,” but because it feels delicious to your soul to leap out of your chair and take inspired action towards your passion. To write the book (and book proposal), to build the tele-class and all the emails that go with it, to practice your TED talk over and over again until you feel it in your bones — you feel the YUM of it all. And you are committed!
You know in your heart that you’re being asked to contribute your gifts in a way that requires entrepreneurial expertise, so you can reach the people you’re here to serve while still paying the bills and comfortably supporting yourself and your family.
And you don’t have to learn it all alone.
In fact, you can’t do it alone.
Here’s the good news: there are some lessons we want to teach you that we promise will cut years off the dragon-slaying part of your visionary journey, save you tens of thousands of dollars and earn you hundreds of thousands more, and jumpstart you leap years past where you’d be if you didn’t learn what we’ve learned the hard way.
It’s time to learn the secrets that we wish we knew years ago when we were struggling, desperate and feeling lost.
We want you to learn from OUR mistakes because it is your birthright to bring your vision into the world and make a beautiful living in the process!
If you’re like any of the more than 500,000 people in our networks (or how we were just a few years ago!), you’ve probably done tons of soul searching, personal growth work and business growth courses. You’ve busted your ass learning what you know. You have the message. Yet somehow you’re still not creating the level of success you long for.
If you ever have wanted to do lunch and pick the brains
and hearts of visionary women who are:
- Making well into 6- and 7-figures a year doing what they LOVE (which feels like peace, joy and the absolute bliss of knowing your gifts are being used in spiritual service)
- Landing several 6-figure book deals (and getting multiple offers)
- Getting invited (repeatedly!) to speak at major events like the Hay House “I Can Do It!” IGNITE conference, BlogHer, TEDx, and Ladies Who Launch
- Launching their books to #1 on Amazon Bestseller lists and hitting the New York Times Bestseller List
- Growing a tribe of ambassadors committed to helping you realize your vision
- Creating incredible friendships and business partnerships with our Heroes and Sheroes
- And more!
But perhaps even more importantly, women who are dedicated and working to:
- Stay in IMPECCABLE ALIGNMENT with our souls
- Stop getting seduced off our purposes
- Keep our spiritual practice at the center of our business decisions
- Take action ONLY when it feels inspired and delicious
- Create success on our own terms (with our priorities in order)
Then THIS is the go-to, look no further, OH YES,
heart centered, spiritually aligned business course for you!
We get invitations every day from people wanting to take us to coffee, go for a hike, schedule a quick phone call, or book a coaching session because they’ve watched us take off to the next level while holding true to our values and our spiritual purpose in the process.
This course is an answer to those requests.
Can you imagine how life would look and feel different this year when you are actually living the vision you have for your life?
If you’re willing to make a commitment to embodying your vision, your dream and your calling, then we’re ready to share with you everything we’ve learned along the way.
We can guide you step-by-step through the crazy landmines of being an entrepreneur and spiritual visionary and lead you to the success you long for.
Why Should You Learn From Us?
We are not business school teachers. Neither of us has an MBA. We’re not financial advisers. We’re not social media coaches. We’re not publicists or literary agents or book editors or public speaking teachers. We’re not preachers or TV producers or PR agents. And we’ve learned even more about business and spiritual fulfillment since we first introduced this program in 2012. All our latest learnings through 2014 are included in this new release of Visionary Ignition Switch.
We are visionaries — and we have walked this road ourselves.
And DANG have we learned a lot!
In 2007, when I quit my stable and lucrative – but miserable – job as an overworked, unhappy, chronically ill full-time physician in a busy managed care practice where I was expected to see forty patients a day, I had no idea what the future would hold. My then husband wasn’t employed and I was the sole bread winner. For the privilege of quitting my job, I had to pay $120,000 to buy my freedom from my practice. To do so, we had to sell our house, liquidate our retirement account, borrow money, and move to the country.
It wasn’t until about nine months after I quit my job that my calling to serve came back with a vengeance. I sensed that I was being called to step up into some sort of spiritual service, but I had no idea what that would look like or how I was supposed to serve. I just knew that the feeling in my heart was calling me forth, and every cell in my body vibrated with the urgency of what I was being called to do.
I labeled the next two years, which were painful in many ways, my “waiting and becoming” years. This time was filled with a lot of uncertainty and accompanying anxiety, but I comforted myself with the strong intuitive sense that I was being called into something unknown which would one day make sense, even though nothing made much sense at the time. I thought I was supposed to write books, and I spent a year writing a book that I hoped would be my ticket out of debt and my gateway to a new career. But that book got rejected by 30 publishing houses because, although the editors loved the book, the marketing people dinged me for having no “platform,” a term that was foreign to me. That’s when my literary agent said, “Lissa, you have to start a blog.” Say what? A blog? I barely checked email and had never even heard of a blog.
But I did my homework, and like a good little doctor following orders, I launched my first blog post in April of 2009. Within three months of starting my blog, I had attracted a large “platform” and been recognized by Forbes, and some of the very same publishers who had rejected my book only months earlier started offering me book deals. My book went to auction, and four publishing houses made offers on it. I started attracting the attention of New York Times bestselling authors, and collaborating with spiritually-inclined visionaries with a desire to change the world. I went on a book tour funded by a large corporation, and I gave lectures at colleges all over the country.
But I still couldn’t pay the bills. My website wasn’t earning any revenue because it was never meant to be a business. I thought writing books would pay the bills, but the book advances I was offered were small, and in order to grow my platform, I had hired staff to help me, so my overhead was quite high. I never even considered leveraging my platform to earn revenue from my blog community, because I had no idea that was even possible. I wound up $200,000 in debt, looking “successful” on the outside, but with a depleted bank account and a dejected spirit. I had never worked so hard and earned so little revenue. Although I had a strong intuitive sense that I was on the right path, there was no clear evidence that I would ever pay the bills. I started to lose hope and question my intuition.
January of 2011 marked the beginning of a very scary time, peppered with many dark nights of the soul. I was full of self-doubt and fear. After finishing my 20-city book tour, turning down my next book deal because the publisher wasn’t going to pay me what I needed to earn in order to cover my family’s bills, losing my literary agent, and deciding to close the integrative medicine practice I had just opened, I felt very frightened. I spent nearly a year in what I called “the narrow place,” that place that feels like you’re being squished from all sides, where you’re in a small, tight, uncomfortable place that makes you feel like you can barely breathe. After risking everything to follow an intuitive hunch, it looked like I was going to have to throw in the towel and admit defeat by going back to the hospital with my tail between my legs. From everything I could gather, it looked like I had failed. But I couldn’t ignore the quiet yet ever present whisper inside of me that kept nudging me, saying “Stay the course, sweetheart. You’re about to turn a corner.” My loved ones weren’t so sure, and everyone started thinking I might have lost my sanity. I had once been a successful doctor who owned two homes and had a fat retirement account, but at this point, I was near bankruptcy. I started questioning my own intuition, thinking maybe I was just delusional. Maybe I would need to go back to my old life as a doctor, even if it felt like killing something fresh and vital deep inside of me.
Then a series of miracles happened.
My book proposal for Mind Over Medicine went to auction and was bought by Hay House for six figures. An invitation to deliver a TEDx talk followed soon after, and that TEDx talk has been viewed nearly a million times. I co-taught several very successful teleclass programs with Amy Ahlers and Martha Beck, and these teleclasses generated six figure paychecks. Amy also taught me how to launch several successful “platinum programs” which generated quick revenue while allowing me to work intimately with mentoring clients. By the end of 2011, everything began to turn around.
In May of 2013, my book Mind Over Medicine hit the New York Times bestseller’s list and wound up getting published in over twenty languages, in addition to being featured on my PBS special Heal Yourself: Mind Over Medicine. This sudden exposure led to two more six figure book deals, as well as five-figure paid public speaking gigs, more TEDx invitations, requests to lead workshops at retreat centers like Esalen and Kripalu, and the creation of the Whole Health Medicine Institute, a certification program for physicians and other health care providers inspired to participate in healing health care and practicing medicine the way I suggest in Mind Over Medicine. I now run a 7 figure business focused primarily on helping individuals alchemize not just illness but any adversity into soul growth so they can align with their spiritual essence and surrender to the Divine — in medicine, in entrepreneurial business, in their personal lives, and in service to humanity.
But then a new challenge arose. Along with the attention, wealth, and fame came many opportunities that threatened to seduce me off purpose. Hooks to the ego were thrown my way, and I realized that this line of business can be the fast track to megalomania, if you don’t stay in impeccable alignment with the part of you I call your “Inner Pilot Light.” If you fail to use appropriate discernment, the land mines of money, celebrity, and approval can suck you in and throw you off course. The Divine mission that called you into spiritual service can get swept aside if you succumb to the allure of the ego. You may even wind up harming the very people you felt called to serve.
That’s part of why Amy and I feel inspired to offer this program. Yes, we want to share with you all the hard lessons we’ve learned along the way about how to run a successful visionary business so you can earn plenty of money doing what you love and serving those who need you. But many others have led programs like that, and we want to go deeper with you.
In addition to helping you thrive in business, we also want to support you in staying aligned with the spiritual service of your purpose and letting your soul run your business, rather than letting your ego make your business decisions. When you are committed to staying impeccably aligned with your soul, activating your discernment, and participating in serving one of God’s holy ideas, participating in visionary business can feel so delicious and fulfilling. Plus there are perks! When you’re brave enough to avoid letting fear make your business decisions, money, influence, the opportunity to get your message out into the world, and a feeling of deep meaning and satisfaction are natural side effects. These things are the delicious icing, but the message you’re spreading in order to serve humanity is the cake we all need right now.
If, however, you fail to stay in impeccable alignment and let your ego, rather than your soul, run your business, you may earn lots of money and reach millions of people with your message, but you’ll probably still feel unfulfilled, something Amy and I have witnessed time and time again. We’ve learned how to practice spiritual service while succeeding in entrepreneurial business, but it hasn’t been easy. And we want to support you in your own journey, as you spread your light into a world that needs all the luminous brilliance it can get right now. Amy and I know the pitfalls that accompany this kind of business, and we want to help you avoid them all so you can bring your spiritual gifts into the light as effortlessly and joyfully as possible, the way we wish someone could have helped us years ago. When we gather together as light workers, free of ego and led by our souls, we align with God’s holy ideas, the Universe rolls out the red carpet, and together, we can uplift the world.
It was 2007 and I was bursting at the seams ready to give birth to my daughter, Annabella, when I got the call from my literary agent. After years of working on my book, only “good” rejection letters kept coming… good because they liked the concept and me, but bad because there was no book deal to be had. I was broken hearted and defeated. The word “platform” kept surfacing and I wanted to SCREAM.
After all, I had left the high-paying sales gig to pursue my dream of being a life coach 7 years prior in 2000. I risked it all to go after my vision… but my dreams were growing and I just couldn’t seem to get to that next level. I was making an OK living… but I was exhausted because I was really receiving a glorified hourly wage… in a way I had created another day job trading dollars for hours. I wanted more. I wanted to be a published author. I wanted to make a bigger impact. And I wanted to stop traveling so I could be with my soon to be born daughter and sweetie pie husband. I wanted to use the power of the internet to create that pesky platform I kept hearing about. And I wanted to play with the people I admired.
So I made the decision to take a STAND for my vision. I wanted to make a beautiful living impacting tens of thousands of people. I launched Wake-Up Call Coaching and The Women Masters Tele-Seminar Series in 2009 and COMMITTED myself to building a platform. To learning everything I could about internet marketing in a heart conscious way. And to manifesting making an awesome living following my BLISS.
So in 2011 I went out for my first book deal again and after getting three book deal offers, I published my first book, Big Fat Lies Women Tell Themselves and was thrilled when I saw it hit #1 in a ton of categories on Amazon including Self-Help, Happiness and Self-Esteem. I also launched one of my flagship courses, Inner Mean Girl Reform School and my first platinum program, the Inner Wisdom Golden Circle. Hitting over $750k in revenue and with a tribe and mailing list of over 45k souls, I felt like I could finally exhale.
And that’s when it hit me. I wanted to complete my family by having another baby. So my husband and I got to “work” and nothing happened for nearly 2 years. I felt myself sinking into a depression about my “fertility limbo” so I went and sourced an amazing spiritual coach to help call our baby in. As I got quieter and tuned into my Inner Wisdom, I could feel that if I didn’t create SPACE in my life, the baby would have no place to land. So instead of building up my business and creating more and more money and reach, I instead focused on meditating, sacred space days in my calendar and scaling back. It was hard as I looked around at so many friends and colleagues going BIG (Miss Lissa included!!), but I realized I needed to follow my heart and truly define success for myself.
I’m blessed to say it worked! I will never forget seeing that positive sign on the pregnancy test. Fast forward to March 5, 2014 and I became proud mama to Evie Rose.
I continue to create sacred space each day to mother and nurse and play with Evie and volunteer at my older daughter, Annabella’s, school. Yes, I got the next book deal too (Reform Your Inner Mean Girl, due out in April 2015) and I’ve begun to vision and create new projects including a new community called Mama Truth Circle, to answer my calling to work with mamas to embrace the whole truth about motherhood, messiness and magic. Sure, my “reach” has gotten bigger. But at the end of the day my life and happiness is about being the kind of mom and wife I want to be and being in deep service to my community.
When Lissa and I teach about creating your OWN definition of success, we mean it. Then you can use all the tools we teach in Visionary Ignition Switch to be in service to your highest callings–both personal and professional. I’m so excited to share this journey with you!
We have another vision we both share. After finding each other in the sea of self-help authors and visionaries in the SF Bay Area, we kept “bumping” into each other (thank you Universe!) and ended up in an amazing mastermind group of authors together, we could feel the call to become partners.
You see, from our perspective, many inspired visionaries, like YOU, are in service to the same thing. We’re not quite sure what to call it – the empowered human? The self-actualized person? Source? Anyway, the way we see it, if we can help you serve your mission, we help both ourselves and you because we’re all in service to this bigger vision. When we help you, we serve the mission in a bigger way. The healing force that radiates out of us helps heal the whole freakin’ world.
As Martha Beck says in her latest book Finding Your Way In A Wild New World, ”If enough people start mending their true nature in the incredibly interconnected world we’re creating, the cumulative effect could begin healing the true nature of, well, everything.”
The problem is so often entrepreneurs take the spirituality OUT of their business, even when they claim to be spiritual teachers.
They end up NOT walking their talk, as if business is somehow separate from spirit and they don’t trust that you can be even more successful when you avoid selling your soul and instead commit yourself in service to one of God’s holy ideas. They don’t realize that the Universe will roll out the red carpet for you when you are brave enough to run your business from your soul and not your ego.
We each learned how to realize our vision, succeed in business, and heal the world… sometimes the hard way, but definitely on our own terms.
We want to save you from the agony, frustration, loneliness, angst, and massive financial loss we both experienced while learning our lessons through the school of hard knocks.
We feel called to dish about every glaring mistake and every killer triumph we’ve achieved so you don’t have to learn everything the hard way.
Realizing your vision isn’t always easy, but it doesn’t have to be as hard as you might think. There are short cuts. There are guaranteed ways to save yourself time, misery, and money. There are surefire secrets to making some things happen.
Many inspired visionaries who have achieved great success have learned these strategies. But when you have yet to realize your vision, this information is hard to come by and too many people are keeping what they’ve learned in the vault.
Not us. This program is all about truth-telling. And we’re gonna let you behind the curtain and reveal the inner-workings of exactly how we’ve achieved what we’ve accomplished. The goals we set, the boundaries we protect, and the joyous commitment we both have to living an extraordinary life.
We’re going to share how you can (cause we did!):
- Transform your visionary messages into written content, videos, mp3s, and tele-seminars that generate hundreds of thousands of dollars in revenue
- Turn a one-on-one practice that’s barely paying the bills into platinum programs that can earn you six figures super fast
- Build a web presence that spreads your message to millions of readers
- Get literary agents fighting over who represents your book
- Have big time New York editors ask you to write a book before you’ve even written a book proposal
- Get your book to auction so editors can bid each other up
- Know in your heart how valuable you and your work are so you can have the confidence to turn down book deals if they don’t honor how much you’re worth
- Transform an $18,000 book deal into a six-figure deal with Hay House
- Have New York Times bestselling authors jonesing to write the foreword to your book
- Make your book hit #1 in all sorts of Amazon categories and increase your chances of hitting the New York Times list
- Earn $30,000 during your book launch, rather than spending a fortune
- Get any mentor/hero/superstar you want to say yes when you make the big ask
- Turn speaking gigs that help you amplify your vision into five-figure speaker’s fees
- Get invited to deliver multiple TEDx talks
- Amass a tribe of Facebook fans and Twitter followers

- Generate (between the two of us) millions of dollars per year in revenue as a side effect of spreading our visions
- Know when to take a leap of faith and when to be patient and wait
Trust us. It has NOT always been easy… in fact there is OFTEN a breakdown just before there’s a breakthrough –– and we know this well.
We’re not suggesting you’ll be able to realize your vision, get famous, and earn boatloads of money overnight, but we can promise that what we’ve learned is crazy valuable and it could shave years and loads of investment off your own visionary hero’s journey.
While some people hoard this kind of information because of fear of scarcity and lack mentality, that’s just not our schtick.
We know there’s enough visionary radiance, abundance, book deals, speaking gigs, TED talks, internet traffic, social media superstardom, national TV appearances, magazine articles, e-course sales, coaching businesses, and bestselling books for all of us.
When we help you, we help you heal the world, and Lord knows, this world is desperately in need of healing.
The Dalai Lama said, “The world will be saved by the Western woman.” And we genuinely believe that the consciousness of the Divine Feminine (in both women and men) is indeed the healing force necessary to save humanity and the planet. It is that consciousness that we have infused into this course.
We know you’re trying to be a part of this movement. And we know it can be exhausting, not to mention expensive. We know you feel like you’re beating your head against a wall sometimes. We know your partner might be pressuring you to start earning money from your dream – like, yesterday – or to go back to your soul-sucking day job. We know you’re burning the midnight oil trying to balance fulfilling your calling with caring for your kids and keeping food on the table – and forget self-care! We know how much money you’ve already invested in realizing your vision. We know how you’ve had to tap into every ounce of courage within you to keep plugging away, trusting that you will be provided for, even when all signs point to failure.
Trust us, we know how much you’ve sacrificed.
We understand and admire your dedication.
We bow to you for answering the call in service to the highest good of us all.
And we’re here to help.
What Students Are Saying About the Visionary Ignition Switch Program
“It was only through Visionary Ignition Switch that I gained the special knowledge and support I needed to achieve this credential for my book and myself as an author.”
When I joined Visionary Ignition Switch with Amy Ahlers and Lissa Rankin, I had just finished my very first book. Up until six months ago, I had never had any professional writing experience, but did have a lot of passion for the niche I served through my budding web site and online community. I had stumbled across some information that mentioned that if I went about marketing my book properly, that it would be possible for it to become an Amazon Best-Seller. After putting my nose to the grindstone to write a book in just a few months time, I admit, I was tired. However, I decided to follow through and plan a month-long online book launch celebration, to increase my chances of reaching best-seller status when my book was first released. I’m so glad I did – my book reached #1 best-seller status in two Amazon categories the first week it was released. The step by step process for promoting and selling my book in a way that resulted in best-seller status was something that I was not able to find anywhere else. It was only through Visionary Ignition Switch that I gained the special knowledge and support I needed to achieve this credential for my book and myself as an author. It’s a huge achievement, one that will serve me in my business as I go forward serving others. I’m forever grateful to Amy and Lissa for the information they share with visionaries like myself, empowering us to not just create a thriving business, but make the world a better place as we do. -- Heather Smith, Best-Selling Author of Secrets to Barrel Racing Success
“Your VIS really is a smart solution to provide crucial education in a manageable format”
I am over-the-moon happy to have all the point-by-point training on the basic building blocks for a service-based, online-presenced biz captured in one place for my clients!!! Sooooo helpful and thank god because it’s totally overwhelming knowing best actions, priority of action and step-by-steps for success in each phase, and…this is the BIG win…hearing this in private coaching format isn’t the best way for the bulk of info to be downloaded – that option is expensive and sluggish – so your VIS really is a smart solution to provide crucial education in a manageable format. This is an incredibly helpful program and a real planet gift for your target, and for this business coach, truly a prayer answered. I can’t wait to share it with my RIGHT-BRAIN Creatives, struggling (but less so since VIS!) to make a LEFT-BRAIN living. THANK YOU! - Melissa McFarlane, Founder, Creative Successful Entrepreneurs
“Thanks to the tools I learned in VIS, I have signed with a very reputable and respected agent in the literary field”
People delivering more than they’ve promised is rare in this day and age, but to say that Amy Ahlers and Dr. Lissa Rankin did so in their Visionary Ignition Switch program would be an understatement. Covering topics from building your platform to networking, book publishing and launches, publicity, marketing and much, much more, Amy & Lissa provided wonderfully insightful content through personal anecdotes, highlighting both what did, and did not work for them through several years of trial and error. Thanks to the tools I learned in VIS, I have signed with a very reputable and respected agent in the literary field who is currently shopping my first book proposal to major publishing houses. I’m very grateful to Amy and Lissa for making this educational experience one filled with joy, lightheartedness, warmth and unconditional support. I highly recommend VIS to anyone looking to take their dreams, goals and visions to the next level! - Chris Grosso, The Indie Spiritualist
In Visionary Ignition Switch: Fire Up Your Message, Money & Meaning In The World, you’ll learn the story of how we are realizing our visions and accomplishing everything we ever dreamed of achieving… and you’ll learn how you can too.

What People Are Saying About Amy & Lissa …
“Lissa is a visionary who started a phenomenon”
Dr. Rankin represents the best of the new generation of young women who are honoring the feminine, embracing our female bodies, and doing so with humor, pleasure, honesty, and a sense of fun. Of course Dr. Lissa Rankin is not your ordinary gynecologist even by today’s standards. She is also an artist and a visionary who started a phenomenon called Owning Pink — a community of women dedicated to celebrating all things feminine, successful, sexy, and pleasurable. She’s a woman’s health visionary – and it takes one to know one! And she does so with a unique brand of cheeky, girlfriend, hip warmth that tickles me pink.
- Christiane Northrup, MD, author of Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom
“Amy has the right combination of heart, business savvy and visionary to bring any project to it’s fullness!”
Amy Ahlers has supported me in taking the steps I needed to bring my career to the next level. I have been in art, marketing and education for over 12 years, but it was under Amy’s counsel that the pieces began to fit together. As an entrepreneur, I can be stubborn, wanting things done my way – Amy was able to gently point me in the direction of marketing techniques that worked, while maintaining my own unique angle. She encouraged me to see things from a new light – that made me feel comfortable enough to do things like build a sales page and do joint venture partners. Amy has the right combination of heart, business savvy and visionary to bring any project to its fullness.
- Shiloh Sophia McCloud, Cosmic Cowgirls University
“Not until working with Lissa did I discover that I was working hard to stay in my own way”
Since my first day working as a lawyer, I have wanted to do something else. While I loved the intellectual challenge of law school, law firm life was not for me. I felt stifled. But I also felt trapped financially. It wasn’t until 20 years and 4 employers later, that I discovered Lissa Rankin. I followed Lissa’s journey with awe, amazement and envy. But still, I could only imagine leaving the corporate rate race. Not until working with Lissa did I discover that I was working hard to stay in my own way. Yes, fear was masquerading as rationale planning. I was overworking myself trying to serve my employer and my dream. But I couldn’t see that. At least not until seeking Lissa’s counsel. Because of Lissa, I am now happily focusing my energy on building the life I want: making pots and building my wellness empire by helping people overcome their illnesses through integrative lifestyle changes.
- Laurie Erdman, founder of Chronic Wellness Coaching
“Amy is a wise business strategist with a lot of courage when it comes to creating marketing and branding for personal growth programs.”
“When it comes to marketing, enrolling, business models and selling my stuff, I still have those moments— feeling overwhelmed and tentative. That’s when I turn to the brilliant, powerful, insightful and oh-so-real Amy Ahlers. Amy is a wise business strategist with a lot of courage when it comes to creating marketing and branding for personal growth programs. She generously shares her best stuff with that girlfriend-y energy that always makes me think ‘yes, I can do this!’. I’ve solved chronic problems, grown my list by 33% and connected with a whole new level of joint venture opportunities based on the coaching I’ve gotten from Amy!

Lissa Rankin, MD is a mind-body medicine physician, founder of the Whole Health Medicine Institute training program for physicians and other health care providers, and the New York Times bestselling author of Mind Over Medicine and The Fear Cure. She is on a grass roots mission to put the “care” back in health care, and to heal our broken health care system – one doctor and one patient at a time.
Discouraged by our broken health care system and curious why some patients do everything “right” but still wind up sick, Lissa set out to discover why some patients experience miraculous cures from seemingly incurable illnesses, while others remain sick even when they receive the best medical care. She researched what really makes people healthy and what predisposes them to illness – not just diet, exercise and standard healthy behaviors, but everything else. What she uncovered in the mainstream medical literature led her to develop a type of medical practice she terms “Whole Health Medicine,” based on the scientifically-proven healthy behaviors she shares in Mind Over Medicine. Based on this philosophy, Lissa created the Whole Health Medicine Institute, a training program for physicians and other health care providers. She is now leading a health care revolution to empower patients to heal themselves, while encouraging the health care industry to embrace and facilitate, rather than resist, such medical “miracles.”
Her latest work in The Fear Cure (Hay House, February 2015) delves even further into the spiritual dimension, as does her upcoming spiritual memoir about how to find and follow your life’s purpose, The Anatomy of a Calling (Rodale, January 2016.)
Lissa blogs at LissaRankin.com and also created two online communities – HealHealthCareNow.com and OwningPink.com. Lissa has starred in two PBS specials — Heal Yourself: Mind Over Medicine and the upcoming The Fear Cure. She also delivered three popular TEDx talks which have had over a million views. She also speaks at health and spirituality conferences nationally and internationally. Lissa’s work has also been featured on over 30 television shows, over 50 radio shows, and in publications such as O Magazine, the New York Times, Health, Women’s Health, Forbes, Glamour, Cosmopolitan, Fox News, Huffington Post, People, Woman’s Day, WebMD, and CNN.
Lissa is also a professional artist, an amateur ski bum, and an avid hiker, and she lives in the San Francisco Bay area with her daughter Siena.

Amy has been a featured expert on numerous TV and radio shows, and for media outlets like The Washington Post and The Huffington Post. She loves lighting up the stage at events where she wakes people up to the voice of their Inner Wisdom and helps them cultivate the courage to act on it. Her first book, Big Fat Lies Women Tell Themselves: Ditch your Inner Critic and Wake Up Your Inner Superstar (New World Library, 2011), shot up to #1 in several categories on Amazon, including Self-Help, Happiness and Self-Esteem. You can find her on Facebook and Twitter, inspiring women to STOP being so hard on themselves.

Frequently Asked Questions:
What will I learn?
You will learn the tested and true techniques and strategies we’ve personally used and learned to get our visions out in the world in a big way while being true to ourselves.
What if I don’t feel like I know my life purpose or calling?
Many people find that going through a program like this helps them crystallize their vision. After all, our Inner Critics love to mask our calling… sometimes it takes being in a group of visionaries like this to spark your vision.
That is exactly why we joined forces with the brilliant Martha Beck and created the Find Your Calling program. You can check that program out here.
How does this course differ from other business courses out there?
Unlike some business courses aimed at entrepreneurs – or even women entrepreneurs — this course is specifically designed not for those who want to sell designer dresses, silk diaper bags, or bathroom decorating services, but for those who feel a pressing calling to be of service and change the world. The trials and challenges these “visionary” entrepreneurs face are very different than the challenges faced by those who are selling products or non-healing services, and this course is specifically designed to address those very issues.
Why are you charging so little… most other online business courses aimed at entrepreneurs cost more than $2000?
We know that the healer spirit that usually accompanies visionary entrepreneurs means you’ve probably been donating your time and services for way too long because you genuinely want to change the world. Because visionaries have a tendency to over-give until they’re depleted, we understand this may mean you’re struggling financially. We also know we want to model for you how to give all you’ve got and still get back, so we’ve priced this course at a price we know anyone can afford if they prioritize it, while making sure we turn a profit. Trust us — you can’t afford not to learn this information! We’ve made this course super duper value-packed and want to help as many people as possible, so we can all serve the world.
How do I know if this course is for me?
One of the most important allies any of us has is our Inner Wisdom, our intuition, our gut instinct. So take a moment now and feel into the course… if you feel a YES or even a MAYBE in your body, then we highly recommend getting off the fence and joining us. Remember it is 100% risk free with our money back guarantee. The surefire way to NOT realize your vision is getting stuck in indecision. And we want your dreams to come true… you deserve it!
We are so, so excited to fire up YOUR message, money and meaning in the world.
With sparks flying,
Amy & Lissa
P.S. We created the course that we WISH we could have taken a few years back. We are taking a stand for you to be in impeccable alignment with your soul’s assignment. We can’t wait to share with you all the secrets and mistakes and triumphs so your head can be in service to your heart.
