Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in health & wellness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Standing Bear Thunder Heart, Owner of Bear And Rainbow, LLC., located in Santa Fe, NM, USA.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
My business is Holistic Healing and Online Network Marketing. My customers on the holistic healing side are either victims of psychic attacks (aka black magic) or have energetic imbalances that hinder their health on all levels, such as physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, etc.
Some of my clients who come to me are spiritually emerging healers struggling with bullying, energetic imbalances, controlling their energetic-mystic-psychic abilities & psychic attacks. I help them to feel peace & control of their relationships & psychic skills by teaching them the healing art of Reiki, shamanism, and other energetic healing and development strategies either through workshops or by having them sign up and become members of Bear & Rainbow Patreon account.
We differ from other teachers because we go beyond psychic protection into attracting loving relationships, that way they learn how to become master-teacher healers and teach them how to protect themselves on all levels best, especially psychic class, which in turn helps build their confidence to live their lives to the fullest through peace, love, and joy.
My customers through online network marketing are high-achieving, small biz owners looking for valuable information to help propel their home-based businesses by generating plentiful leads with ease, grace, velocity, and success. My (along with Rainbow's, my business partner) philosophy is we teach people how to fish so they can feed themselves. This may be the right place for them to learn how to become a leader.
Tell us about yourself
I, Standing Bear Thunder Heart, once upon a time, was bullied and a recipient of psychic attacks while at the same time going through spiritual emergencies in developing energetic-mystic-psychic abilities. Through training in the martial arts, mystic arts, meditation arts, and healing arts of different styles, I was able to build the confidence to ward off threats from all levels, from the physical to spiritual dangers, through becoming an Energy Healer, Reiki Master-Teacher, and Shamanic Healer, as well as a martial arts fighter.
Several years ago, I ran into many people who revealed to me and my business partner, Rainbow, that they had been recipients of psychic attacks or black magic from former friends, ex-spouses, and even disgruntled family members. I decided to help them protect themselves by having psychic protection classes and later on teaching some of them Reiki and shamanism to live their lives covered, be able to heal themselves and others and be great problem solvers and contributors to society.
In the process of healing and teaching people how to protect themselves and heal themselves and others, I also started working with online network marketing home business companies in which I learned about marketing, promotions, networking, and sales and applied the knowledge I had learned from network marketing to my healing business practice as well. Later, Rainbow and I published an e-book, "Short Stories of Psychic Protection with Bear & Rainbow," featured now on our website, BearAndRainbow.com.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
My biggest accomplishment as a business owner is producing three Reiki Energy Master-Teacher Healers. One of them went out and opened up her own business and practice. My healing and network marketing businesses helped me create a few income streams, no matter how big or small they are. That is how people who run small companies eventually become rich or even financially free.
What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
The hardest thing about being a business owner is that you first have to continue evolving yourself as a person. Second, you must keep changing faster, especially in the information age with the internet, social media, apps, and artificial intelligence through education and keeping up to date with information. Third, studying new marketing, promotions, and sales strategies to grow, be a leader, be successful and stay successful through consistently producing and adding value to other people's lives.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
My tips to anyone looking to start, run, and grow a business today are as follows:
- Find out your passion and your "Big Why" on why you want to run a business.
- Find out how much it would cost to start a business and see if it is worth it or not, or you can join an online network marketing and learn to build networks, but whatever you decide, make a decision to start your business and stick to it, even if you use it as a second job while you are working your day job.
- Study business, mindset training, marketing, promotions, lead generation, networking, organization, etc., from the leaders, coaches, and teachers living and working on their businesses. Yes, studying from college professors in business will give you a degree. Analyzing leaders in the industry will help you earn income streams eventually, so keep at it and don't give up.
