Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey by launching a coaching business but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Ben Corkery, of Reallifeed based in Peterborough, Ontario.

What's your business and who are your customers?

I coach teachers suffering burnout on how to recharge and start a hobby they enjoy.

Tell us about yourself

I have always been creative but wasn't sure how to do something with it so I went to become a teacher, but I realized I was not fulfilled in that job.

I then started multiple side-hustles and creative practices to get excited about my work again... and it worked, now I help other teachers do the same!

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

Helping other people get excited about their life and use their creativity.

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

Staying organized and focused!

What are the top 3 tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

1. Have fun with it.

2. Be disciplined.

3. Be audacious.

Is there anything else you'd like to share?

I think everyone has a business, project or creative idea inside of them, and they just need the push to get it out.

Where can people find you and your business?
