How My Own Business Came to Be
Many people in the wellness industry come to a point in their career where they are tired of working for someone else, and want to create a wellness practice based around their vision of helping people. Many of these professionals are very good at their jobs, but have no clue how to run a business. I was in the very same boat when I branched off to create my own business.
The statistics show that most small businesses fail within the for year. When I first started my business, like many others I had no idea what the heck I was doing. If I hadn't been working side jobs to supplement my income, I would have fallen into that same statistical pattern.
After years of falling flat on my face, and learning just about every way of doing something wrong, I started to discover what actually works well with running a business. It is all these trial and errors that brought me to this conclusion:
Most wellness practitioners need help with starting their business.
Raise your hand if this statement rings true. As a wellness practitioner, I want to help people, I don't want to have my face deep in paperwork trying to figure out how to keep this business alive. I know many of you feel the same way, and that is what brought on the idea of this podcast.
My Goal For You:
My goal is to help you get past the struggles of starting a business, and focus more on finding and retaining clients and patients, bringing in an income that allows you to focus strictly on your business instead of having to find side jobs, and to have more successful wellness businesses that focus on improving the health of the people standing directly in front of them.
