Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Dr. Janet Fienemann, a therapist and life coach based in Jacksonville Beach, FL, USA.

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

I am a therapist. My clients are usually women overcoming anxiety, over-functioning, and people-pleasing to become their best selves.

Tell us about yourself

I always felt like I was missing some “how to be happy and have fulfilling relationships” manual and have spent my life figuring out how to be confident, self-compassionate, assertive, happy, and successful.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

Hearing clients tell me they now have the life, family, marriage, confidence, and peace of mind they have always wanted since working with me.

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

Having a successful business and growing it at the same time.

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

  1. Know yourself. Are you ready to work hard, often for little money at first, and persevere through failures and challenges?
  2. Do you love what you do?
  3. Are you comfortable “putting yourself out there”? And if not, are you willing to grow in this area or find someone to market and sell you for you?

Where can people find you and your business?
