Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in personal development but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Carrie Jeroslow, Founder of Embrace Truth Creations, LLC., located in Elkin, NC, USA.

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

I'm a Best-Selling Author, Speaker, Intuitive, and Conscious Relationship Coach. I believe we all deserve and are capable of having relationships that are joy-filled and soul-nourishing. We just need education, support, and guidance to get there. The key is in the idea of Conscious Relating. In other words, when we make a commitment to getting to know ourselves, we are more conscious of how we relate to others.

I work with people who are ready to create and experience deeply fulfilling, heart-centered relationships. Many have had many relationships that ended the same way that they experienced from their wounded selves. I help to uncover their wounds so they can relate to their truest, healed selves.

Tell us about yourself

My journey took so long because I had to find my way. It was perfect for me, I know that, but it was during a time when access to this kind of information wasn't readily available. When I had my spiritual awakening in 1994, there was no Google or Yahoo. However, my process, although lengthy and winding, was the process I love leading my clients through in my 8-Week Relationship Program - Journey Into Self.

It is my intention that, by having the steps laid out succinctly, you will be able to find your path with greater simplicity. Having led many clients through this process, I know that although this process is simple, it isn't always easy. However, this process is possible. I have seen it work for so many people, and I experienced it myself. If you can make the commitment with great resolve, you will be in amazement at what your life can look like!

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

I am an International Award-Winning, Best-Selling Author - that is a label that I am proud of. However, my biggest accomplishment is seeing my clients experience a love that they had only dreamed of previous to our working together. The world needs more love right now than ever before, and the most empowering way to bring more peace and love into the world is to first focus inward. I provide a safe space of love and acceptance for one to do that. And I believe that this is helping the bigger healing of the collective and humanity.

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

I think the hardest thing about being a business owner/entrepreneur is maintaining focus on the vision. Ask constantly, "Is this leading me toward my vision?" This is where business coaches come in. I also think it is challenging to maintain balance in my personal and business lives and to be able to trust that I will get there, even if it takes a little longer, because I need to spend some time in reflection and self-care. Honoring my needs is imperative.

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

  1. Know your "why" and refer back to it through both challenging and exciting times.
  2. Be curious and use everything as analytics instead of a reflection about your or your business's self-worth.
  3. Find a balance between staying clear and focused on your vision AND being willing to evolve as you evolve.
  4. Bonus tip: Commit to self-care every single day. Self-Care is about connecting to yourself and tuning into your own needs and desires. This is the safe space where you can come to when you have lost direction or motivation or are feeling challenged.
