Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in personal development but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Dr. Kara Larson, CEO of CozyMind, located in Barcelona, Spain.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
CozyMind is a business performance coaching company on a mission to help 1 million professionals shift from their traditional work habits to daily routines that improve health, wealth, and efficiency. We work with individuals, small businesses, and large corporations in healthcare, technology, consulting, and law.
Tell us about yourself
It's so easy to take each day on autopilot and to lean on the systems we have used in the past to create success. But what happens when those systems aren't enough? Workplace exhaustion and burnout are becoming the norm at an alarming rate. So I decided in 2019 to create a better way forward. I am Dr. Kara Larson, and I believe that the current approach to corporate work isn't serving us. That's why I built CozyMind with my COO Joaquin Hourbeigt and why we are committed to helping 1 million professionals shift from their traditional work habits to daily routines that improve health, wealth, and efficiency.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
My biggest accomplishment at CozyMind has been supporting our clients (in law, tech, healthcare, and fortune 500 companies like Facebook) in reducing their stress by up to 50% and saving an average of 10 hours at work per week.
What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?
Visibility is one of the hardest challenges for me as a business owner. At CozyMind, we want to support as many professionals and businesses as possible, but it can be difficult to get in front of our ideal clients since they lead busy professional lives.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- When you are starting, don't assume you know what your clients need. Ask them :D
- Be flexible with your products and let them evolve to reflect current needs.
- Create opportunities to connect with your clients and for your clients to connect with each other. The knowledge and support within a group are far superior to that of a few.
