Natural Awakenings Community

Elaine Russo

Elaine Russo

With gratitude, I am approaching my ninth year of publishing Natural Awakenings in San Diego. I had set an intention of selling my publication after year five. However, life circumstances in conjunction with my love for publishing made me a healthy hostage to my beloved magazine. I have healed and grown in so many ways and helped countless others do the same.

        For any of you that travel back and forth across the country, you probably know that Natural Awakenings is saturated on the East Coast. There’s a Natural Awakenings magazine in almost every major city from Florida to New York. It has always been my mission from the start to help grow Natural Awakenings on the West Coast, and I believe its time for me to start that mission. Educating our communities and supporting our local businesses on alternative health and lifestyles is how and why Natural Awakenings magazines thrive. I am asking the Universe to provide us with more passionate publishers to plant the seeds we need to sustain. Anyone with this passion will succeed. If that anyone is you, contact us.

        While focusing on expanding the Natural Awakenings community along our coast, I’ll need more time in my schedule to make that happen. With that in mind, I’d like to announce that part or all of the San Diego territory is for sale. As a believer in cryptocurrency, I’ll even consider accepting Bitcoin as a partial purchase payment for the sale of my franchise. If you’re interested in learning more, reach out. I’d love to chat.
