  • You want (or have) a business doing what you love, that is aligned with your heart, and transforms your clients’ lives.

  • You're afraid of how you will make ends meet every month.
  • You're stuck in survival mode instead of thriving.
  • You have a spiritual commitment in your life, and are committed to doing whatever it takes to make a difference in the lives of others and on the planet.

Dharma "Jason" Pugliese
Founder of the Holistic School of Business

Yes, you can have a profitable business based on your unique purpose and passion!

Hi, I’m an entrepreneur, consultant, coach, and educator.  I'm also the Founder of The Holistic School of Business.  This program combines my 20+ years experience as an entrepreneur, along with 15+ years teaching meditation in a way that will help you turn your unique purpose and calling in life into the form of a profitable and thriving business doing what you love. Since I've helped hundreds of small business owners bring their business (and their lives) to the next level, I know first-hand that the core principles of my teaching system work for anyone who wants to start and/or grow a successful business that makes a difference.  I am here to help you combine practical business advice with spiritual principles in a way that will help you reach your full potential in life and in business.

I’ve helped clients like:

Andrea Thibaudeau, Owner & Director of Heart Space Yoga Studio, who struggled to fill her yoga teacher training program and pay off studio debt.

Nick Sicard, Co-Founder Vermont Mountain Mushrooms, who struggled to grow his business because he lacked a long-term sales system, and, as a result, simply wasn’t making enough sales.

After working with the Holistic School of Business . . .

Andrea Thibaudeau was able to fill her yoga teacher training with 25 students, increase studio income over $50,000, and pay back the debt that she owed for the studio. She was able to completely take her studio to the next level in less than six months!

Nick Sicard was motivated to get out and make more sales for his mushroom business, tripling sales in three months!  Within these three short months, he developed an entire system for making sales and suddenly couldn't grow his mushrooms fast enough to keep up with the demand!

Nick Sicard

“Our sales tripled in three months! Jason motivated us to get out and make more sales for our mushroom business. Now, we have an entire system for making sales, and our biggest problem is that we can’t grow our mushrooms fast enough to keep up with the demand!”

Nick Sicard, Co-Founder Vermont Mountain Mushrooms

We’ve been working with people like you for over 5 years to build a foundation:

  • For long-term success
  • For consistent, reliable income doing work they love
  • For a profitable business that makes a difference.

Andrea Thibaudeau

I feel like Jason's program is an incredible offering. Just the right combination of business know how and logistics along with heart, love, and greater possibility. It brings the realms of spirituality and business together in a beautiful way.

Andrea Thibaudeau, Heart Space Yoga

When you serve from a place of compassion that is rooted in a stable foundation, you will be better able to serve your clients on their transformational journeys.

NEW from The Holistic School of Business!

The Purpose, Passion, and Profits: Business Foundations and Mastermind Program is a 6-Month Long Learning Experience that will help you create a Profitable Business Based on Your Unique Purpose and Passion

This program is a Small Business Immersion with our school’s founder, Dharma "Jason" Pugliese. It will give you a powerful foundation for long-term success in your heart-centered business and help you attract more clients quickly—all while staying true to your life’s purpose and values.

The program is ideal for you if you are:

  • A professional coach, healer, educator, yoga teacher, consultant or other heart-centered entrepreneur who wants a profitable business that makes a difference in the lives of others.
  • In the startup phase, or if you are struggling to bring a consistent flow of clients into your current business.
  • Committed to bringing your genuine passion and purpose into your life’s work.
  • Ready to do the real work of growing your business.
  • Integrating holistic, spiritual, and/or mindfulness-based principles and practices into your work and life.

Together we will work on 3 key areas that will open the door to your success in business:

Every human being has a specific purpose for being alive—the unique reason they are here on this planet. However, many people are disconnected from their core purpose on a day-to-day basis or they lack clarity around their highest purpose.

Whether you need to reconnect with or gain clarity on your life’s purpose, this program will help you build a business that is based on your unique and primary purpose in life.

Passion is your deep, unconditional love for what you do in your work and for the difference you make in people’s lives. Once you know your purpose, you will be inspired to build your business based on what you are most passionate about.

This program will help you harness your passion and use it to build the bridge between Purpose and Profits.

When your business is a reflection of your life’s purpose and you are working from a space of inspiration and passion, you will experience more financial fulfillment.

This program is going to help you to work on the nuts and bolts of sales, marketing, and accounting so that you can achieve financial success, start making money quickly, and develop a foundation for long-term and sustainable profitability in your business.

Our Foundation Program is where Purpose, Passion and Profit all weave together into the form of a highly successful, heart-centered business that brings joy and freedom into your life and makes a difference in the lives of others and in the world.

Awaken Your Full Potential

A Course in Personal Mastery

  • Mindfulness & Self-Care
    This lesson features a mindfulness meditation instruction and self-care exercises to help you maintain balance and focus while developing your business.

  • Consciously Create with the Law of Attraction
    This is the timeless Universal Law of Attraction – we receive back the energies that we send. The conscious creation process works with the energies of intentioning, trust, and receiving: one intentions what he or she wants to manifest, then trusts that it will manifest, and then receives the creation. Learn new tools to help you overcome obstacles to success AND access your own unique power to create the business and the life they want.

Leadership Success Formula

A Course in Entrepreneurial Mastery

Rapid Client Enrollment

A Course in Sales and Marketing Mastery

  • Rapid Client Enrollment
    Your effective client enrollment system (a.k.a, a “sales funnel”) features your specific, low-cost marketing strategies to attract your ideal clients into your client enrollment system. Your client enrollment system can be used immediately to bring in new clients.
  • Create & Communicate Your Offers
    Before you can create your sales funnel, you need to create and clearly communicate your offers in your sales funnel. This requires crafting your offers or services for each step of the sales funnel that help to transform your ideal customer’s problems and suffering into SOLUTIONS, EASE, and FREEDOM. Knowing how to match sales offers that are proportionate to TRUST EARNED is key to inspiring your ideal customer from their first “YES” and upwards to become lifetime customers.
  • Craft Your Ultimate Sales Funnel
    Your sales funnel is the sequence through which your ideal customers first learn about you, then make a purchase from you, and then ultimately continue to purchase from you and become raving fans. It is built on trust and credibility—the process that uses long-term strategies to take your ideal client on a deep, transformational journey. Your sales funnel is an important part of a comprehensive sales and marketing strategy.
  • Sales Strategies That Work
    You need some simple techniques to close the deal. You need to develop authentic sales strategies that bring in a steady flow of new clients, without coming across as pushy or "salesy." Your free sessions (a type of free offer) is one example of an effective strategy.
  • Core Authentic Marketing Strategies
    You need marketing strategies to inspire your ideal customers to say “yes” to your lead magnet and then upward along the sales funnel as you help to transform your ideal customer’s problems and suffering into solutions, joy, and freedom.
  • Hire Your First Assistant

This lesson will walk you through the process of hiring your first assistant, setting the foundation for future team building and team management. You will learn how to look for the right person, where to find candidates, interviewing candidates, performing reference checks, and handling contracts.

  • Fundamentals of Accounting

You will learn how to interpret your primary financial statements and gain a better understanding of your financial situation so that you can make educated decisions. You will learn the basics about how to create an automated accounting system using a software like QuickBooks for small business. You will also learn the basics about how to develop a budget for your business so that your spending and financial decisions are always optimized for maximum effectiveness.

You Won't Have to Do It Alone!

Being self-employed can be a lonely path to follow. It’s way too easy to become isolated, confused, and even scared. It’s crucial, therefore, to break your isolation and have people to talk to.

Specifically, you’ll need others who you can partner with, who can provide accountability and support. People who care about you and are committed to your success. People who will inspire you and help unleash your full creativity.

When you enroll in our program, you'll find the support you need to bring your business to a whole new level.

The program has some powerful tools in place to help keep you on track and accountable for making forward progress in your business. For starters, during each session, we’ll check in to see if you fulfilled the commitments you’ve made to yourself since the last session. I’ll also ask you to submit a monthly progress report. Both of these tools are proven methods to accelerate your success.
