Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in health and wellness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Asma Shollert, Owner of H2 OM Holistic Living, located in Toronto, ON, Canada.

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

I own a holistic wellness space in Humber Bay Shores called H2 OM Holistic Living Studio. We offer services and events for Mind, Body & Soul. We serve our beautiful community - ranging from the early '20s and up!

Tell us about yourself

My name is Asma; I come from an athletic background working as a Kinesiologist and Strength & Conditioning Specialist. Before the pandemic, I had been feeling ready for a shift. I felt that I was meant to support people on a more profound level of health, including Mind & Soul (not only the Body). When the pandemic hit, and I wasn't working, it gave me lots of time to develop the beautiful space and experience that our community now gathers at. What motivates me is being in this beautiful, zen, magical space that is a respite for so many. Witnessing the healing that happens every day for our community and being in a place where I can truly and authentically be myself!

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

Creating a community healing place, attracting our incredible work Family, and surviving the challenges we faced during the pandemic.

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

Creating balance in one's life. Serving and supporting others is so natural! Its important to also do the same for yourself :)

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

  1. Expect the unexpected - so have a buffer of resources and support if possible.
  2. Go with the Flow - sometimes your business plans will shift, and listen to the needs of your community, what's working and what's not. Let go of rigidity.
  3. Lead with Love always! To your staff, your clients, and most importantly, yourself <3
