Hi, I'm Sharon Burch
Through my group coaching and private business advising services, I teach nurses how to grow thriving, sustainable businesses they love. My clients value their nursing identity and the public’s trust. Now, they want to learn to increase their autonomy, freedom, and fulfillment.
I’ve been a holistic nurse entrepreneur since 1984 and a holistic continuing nursing education (CNE) provider since the mid-1990s, when I pioneered selling CNE courses online. I’ve studied business in-depth with many “conscious” online business mentors and translated their business practices into nursing practices.
I’ve founded several successful for-profit and nonprofit businesses, including a hospital-based massage therapy group practice, and I’ve provided business development and marketing consultation to the American Holistic Nurses Association, the American Holistic Nurses Credentialing Corporation, the Hawaii Yoga Institute, and others.
Today, I direct New Directions for Nurses, where the Liberated Nurse Entrepreneurs team shows nurse coaches, consultants, and healers how to own their power, realize their potential, and grow thriving, sustainable businesses they love.
Our students say...
"I was stuck in fear and didn't know how to build a business or believe in myself. Once I started the Incubator, the feedback helped me get past my 'imposter syndrome' feelings and develop self-confidence. Now I'm on my way to creating a viable business!" ~ Grace Orosz, RN-BC, HN-BC
"I started with no business education or experience. Within the first several months of the Incubator lessons and coaching, I secured my first contract and leveraged that opportunity to propel me forward in the growth of my business."
~ Maria L, BSN, RN, HTCP
"I went from being insecure and having no clue about business, to feeling that I know not just how to attract clients and have them pay for my service, but having deep insights into who I am and why I want to help. This makes it so much easier to know my next step.” ~ Maja Cæcilie Hansen Hofstetter, RN, Denmark
"Before working with Sharon, I felt super confused, anxious, and overwhelmed with all the different tasks and marketing strategies. Now I feel so much more in flow instead of like I'm pushing a heavy rock uphill!" ~ Alyssa Saquilayan, BSN, RN, NC-BC
Our clients say...
"I highly recommend Sharon as a business guide, coach, and mentor. She has an incredible ability to ask probing questions in a noninvasive way, such that I can hear my own thoughts and develop my leadership skills authentically.”
~ Kilty Inafuku, E-RYT500, YACEP, Executive Director of the Hawaii Yoga Institute
“I can’t thank you enough, Sharon! I now have a path to realize my dream of supporting nurses to achieve important professional goals to improve clinical care... I look forward to learning more from you.”

"Sharon is a wise and compassionate business advisor who has a wonderful business mind! She saw the potential in our course and helped us with our marketing approach. Now a hospital is paying us to offer our course to its staff.
We're extremely grateful for Sharon's help that made this possible!"
~ Lindsay Leimbach, Co-creator of the Stress Shifter Skills Course
"Sharon has been such an amazing coach, approachable leader, informed mentor, and most importantly, a calming presence through all my questions... and her knowledge of nonprofit organizations has helped me tremendously as a board member in a new executive leadership role."
