Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in health and wellness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Ann Ball, Owner of Bliss Wellness, located in Penhold, AB, Canada.

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

I offer Subconscious Imprinting Technique, Reiki, and Meditation classes to support a woman who is feeling stuck and not like themselves.

Tell us about yourself

After having my firstborn, I experienced postpartum depression. During this time, I discovered Reiki. I was getting Reiki treatments so frequently that I decided to take my level 1 and 2 training.

Shortly after, I fell in love with sharing Reiki with others and opened my business.
I love supporting others when they are going through a difficult time by letting go of the blockages and emotions they are carrying that are keeping them stuck.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

Watching people go from feeling completely lost to transforming their lives and going after their dreams and/or healing fully.

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

All of the roles I need to play. A social media expert, accountant, marketer, audio editor, website designer, writer, and the list goes on.

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

  1. Write down your why - why are you creating this business?  Your why will get you through the difficult times and help keep you on track.
  2. Love what you’re doing - yes, it’s important to make money, but if you don’t like what you’re doing, it’s not going to be enjoyable.
  3. Hire help - sometimes, as entrepreneurs, we feel like we need to do it all but if you’re really not good at something and don’t want to do it, hire someone to do it. You can use that time and energy to do what you’re good at.

Where can people find you and your business?
