Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in wellness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Allison Bruce, Founder and Owner of Flourish Integral Health, located in Highland Park, IL, USA.

What's your business, and who are your customers?

My business is a brand of healing products and services to help you flourish on your personal growth journey to whole health. I offer energy-infused gemstone jewelry, plus other conscious products and intuitive Energy Medicine work. My customers/clients are people who desire to live more genuinely, empowered, and trusting in the process of transformation towards their highest self. Some lack fulfillment and struggle with physical health, anxiety, or trauma.

Tell us about yourself

My personal whole health transformation through holistic healing, and my strong pursuit of joy, were two impetuses to creating my business. I am motivated to do what I do each day because my work is fulfilling and rewarding.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

My biggest accomplishment as a business owner is creating a company from scratch that supports other people's wellness and success.

What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?

The hardest thing for me about being an entrepreneur is wearing so many different hats and balancing my time.

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

  1. Follow your heart.
  2. Get out of your head.
  3. Don't give up.

Is there anything else you'd like to share?

I also write a column for Energy Magazine called Soulful Reads. If you are interested in personal growth reading, please check out the column links on my website. And lastly, in the near future, I'll be publishing a personal growth workbook, Flourish A 365-Day Guided Path Towards Love: How to Experience More Joy, Live with More Intention, and Be True to Yourself.
