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

I am a psychologist that writes self-empowerment programs and books for women to achieve goals and become happy.

Tell us about yourself

I achieved life goals despite obstacles - I had a disability, raised by a single poverty-stricken mother who at times was homeless - to owning my own property in my 20s, graduating pre-med from UCSD, and later putting myself through graduate school to become a psychologist and write books about my experience to help others through similar experiences.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

Writing my latest book, "The Muse Process," and having a publisher buy the rights to publish it.

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

Doing things totally on my own.

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

  1. Make sure you have a mentor prior to setting up.
  2. Get advice from helpful sources.
  3. Trust your gut.

Where can people find you and your business?
