Are you confident that you know how to run your wellness business successfully?
For a lot of entrepreneurs, their creative talent is their strength, while running a business is something that they're having to learn on the go.
But with so much at stake, it's crucial that you use more than wish and hope (and a bit of law of attraction magic) as early in your business journey as possible.
Our guest today learned this lesson the hard way.
Jennifer Morley - an entrepreneur and a salon marketing coach - joins us in today's episode of the Wellness Entrepreneur Podcast, and talks about her experience of nearly shutting down her business, and how one incredible epiphany helped her turn everything around. In this episode we explore:
- How bad advice from the wrong business coach nearly ran her salon to the ground
- How finding her ideal client helped Jennifer take her business from stagnant to booming in two years
- The importance of showing up online and making sure you have an omni-channel...
What if you’re passionate about more than one field? How do you know which one is the right fit for you?
When choosing a niche to build your business, you have to take many material and spiritual considerations into account.
All of which can leave you terribly confused and delay your commitment to one path.
But what if that delay isn’t a bad thing?
In today’s episode, I talk to the brilliant wellness entrepreneur, Suzie Smith, who had to make that decision between her successful yoga teaching business and a developing talent in handpoked tattoo artistry. Listen to her lay out her journey, as we explore:
- How Suzie tried to be practical about her artistic pursuits and trained in yoga to teach it as she traveled across South America
- How tattooing her friends for fun slowly turned into a lucrative side hustle that was taking up more and more of her interest and time
- The balancing of two businesses and the moment when it tilted in one definite...
Do the endless ‘quick fixes’ popping up in the wellness space ever make your eyes roll? Yes? ME TOO!
The reality is - the superficial nature of these hacks can often turn well meaning clients and practitioners away from practices that could truly benefit their overall health and well-being (and business!)
After all, the goal of the wellness space has always been to find ways to support people to support themselves, but it’s becoming increasingly important that we check who we’re getting our information from, and how solid these sources really are.
Today, I talk with Puja Vashisht - a learned Ayurvedic practitioner and wellness coach - and we get honest about the difficulties clients can face in taking the often hard steps to improve their lives and businesses, and abandon the mindset of reaching for quick fixes.
Puja takes us through her path from being a skeptical child growing up in a household that practised the tenets of Ayurveda to learning to...
How often do we skip the gym because we can’t bear to have an audience to our struggles on that day?
How often does self care and fitness aspirations fall to the wayside, as we focus on fulfilling our roles as mothers, wives, CEOs, and entrepreneurs?
We have too much on our plate, and no motivation to face the gym on top of a tiring day.
Which is why, in this episode of The Wellness Entrepreneur Podcast, I chat with Jenna McAvoy, a fitness coach with seven years of experience, who identified this problem in the lives of her clients and set about finding a personalised solution through her brand, Empwr.
Jenna tells us the amazing story of how her own struggles taught her to help rebuild women’s confidence!
We dive deep into the challenges and success of her business, and explore:
- How Jenna created a brand that revolves around addressing every client’s unique struggles
- How building her career as a Personal Trainer helped rebuild her own confidence
- How Jenna...
Do you ever have days when you wake up planning to power through your schedule, but your mind and body just says ‘NO’?
What if I told you that there is a way to know exactly which days of the month you’re likely to feel this way - and that you already have the tools to navigate this.
The only thing missing is the knowledge of how to use them.
Historically, women who knew how to tap into their natural cycles and understood its raw power scared the patriarchy.
Unfortunately, not much has changed - talking about menstruation is still taboo in most societies!
Which is why in this week's Wellness Entrepreneur Podcast episode, I interview menstrual cycle educator and coach, Jema Lee, and dig deep into the secrets that lie within both ancient and modern healing practices.
Our body is always ready to guide us towards balance and prosperity. We just need to listen! So, in this episode, we explore:
- How to track and study your cycle and take full advantage of the gifts each phase...
Have you ever wondered how the alignment of planets can supercharge your business growth?
No? Well, I didn’t either.
Until, I came across Francesca Oddie, that is - the most analytical astrologer you’ll ever meet - and got curious about what our birth charts have to say about the paths we choose in life and work.
Turns out, it has quite a bit to say!
According to today’s guest, the field of astrology exists to help you check-in with your true life purpose, and to keep you on a path that takes you directly to the heights you were always meant to reach.
It’s a tool that helps you hone your business strategy but it can also help you get a deeper understanding of yourself. In this eye-opening conversation, we explore:
Are you feeling frustrated and even burnt out by the endless hours spent on Instagram getting absolutely nowhere - FAST?
I promise you I’ve been there!
Everyone seems to make the whole thing look so easy but every time you gain some new followers, a little more engagement or even an enquiry or two, the next minute it all seems to fall away - and you're back to crickets.
If you're feeling this way - I am here to tell you it is not your fault. These platforms have so many functions and features it can feel almost impossible to keep up, let alone master their intricate do's and don'ts.
Now look, I'm not some wannabe social media guru, I'm someone who was where you are now just 12 months ago. Feeling lost, deflated and disempowered when it came to my relationship with Instagram.
But not anymore! In less than 12 months I mastered a potent growth formula that took us from a stagnant 2K to a thriving 10K+ audience - and lucky for you, in todays Wellness Entrepreneur Podcast episode I'm...
Once you've working as a professional dancer for icons such as Kylie and Take That you would think your life would be made, right?
It's possibly every budding dancers dream to see the world, land the life-changing jobs and hang out with some of the world's best-known artists.
In todays Wellness Entrepreneur Podcast episode I interview ex-professional dancer turned nutritional therapist and Pilates instructor ISA Welly. In this episode Welly shares her story of reaching the highest heights in her dancing career to burning out and doing a total 360 in her life and her business. This is an incredibly honest conversation where we explore:
- What burnout is telling us and how we can use it as a catalyst for change
- The reality of dealing with competition in a saturated market where everyone is chasing the same goal
- How fundamental resilience is in the success of business online and offline and why some people in the wellness industry lack the discipline that's necessary to...
You won’t see this coming.
Because in all honesty not many of us do.
We get so caught up in the next ‘uplevel’ that we never ask ourselves if we’ve really got what it takes internally to sustain it.
The constant exhaustion.
The endless giving.
The feeling like it’s never enough.
It’s all part of it.
And whilst these feelings are so very real - the meaning behind them are often entirely misunderstood.
We see it all as an indicator of failure but what if it’s something else?
This year my online business grew exponentially.
I smashed through all my 2020 targets and currently support five times the amount of clients I did this time last year.
I mean it’s all really happening - I’m fulfilling my mission of supporting wellness entrepreneurs to get their tools out in the world en masse to create a kinder, more supportive and more inclusive world.
In fact, as I write that, I feel incredibly emotional because I believe this is what...
When you first start out in businesses it can be hard to catch a break.
You don’t yet have the follower numbers, the best-selling books, the friends with a massive audience or anything else to leverage to get more eyes on your work.
Now if you’re reading this then I already know you’re working hard towards achieving all of the above but should we really be measuring the quality and transformative nature of everyone's work purely by the numbers and accolades?
Having worked with hundreds of clients in the first few years of business I know without doubt that among them has been some of the most talented, committed, inspiring and life-altering practitioners I have ever met.
This is why on this week's podcast episode I am interviewing our Wellness Entrepreneur Collective ‘Member Of The Month’, Maddy Stretton.
Maddy shares her story of finding her purpose as a personal trainer while navigating the ever-changing landscape as an army wife and mother of...
