Some of the things we talked about:

  • Starting a blog with no idea where it would lead. Finding an entrepreneurial path in wellness by just starting and taking one step at a time.
  • Having a ‘big idea’ vs. a trial and error method. Do we need to know where we’ll end up?
  • Everyone is a beginner at some point. Being kind to yourself and remembering that even successful entrepreneurs were once beginners.
  • Whether you need a business plan when you’re starting out
  • Reframing ‘mistakes’ as things that we could do differently or things we could have learned quicker with better support
  • How we are our own biggest barriers to success – the stories we tell ourselves that get in the way of growing a business
  • Wanting to make money and be financially successful and how to change our mindset around money without feel too ‘woo woo’
  • Investing in yourself and how important it is to shift you forward – even at an uncomfortable level
  • Swallowing your pride and working with a coach to teach you what you want to know, rather than trying to work it out yourself and taking longer than it needs
  • What is ‘enough’ in your wellness business. Shaping your own work life and balance.
