Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Jamie Wilkey, co-founder of PGx Consulting Confidence Academy, located in Orem, UT, USA.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
I teach pharmacists to create their own careers and break out of traditional retail pharmacies.
Tell us about yourself
I got started when I saw my cousin go through a mental health crisis. Her doctors threw so many medications at her, but none were working. As a pharmacist, I know that using genetics can help people get the right medication at the right dose for their body the first time. So, I am on a mission to help pharmacists truly help their patients understand their medications in a meaningful way, rather than just medicating them.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
Hitting six figures in six months and training over 200 pharmacists to build their own consulting practice in almost every state in the US.
What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
Spending your valuable time on what matters most and not what keeps you busy.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- Do what you love. Find the marriage of passion, knowledge, and need in your community.
- Start scrappy.
- Failure is how you learn. Embrace it!
