Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in mental wellness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Dr. Laura Ellick, Founder of Dr. Laura Ellick Psychology & Wellness Services, PLLC, located in Palm Beach Gardens, FL, USA.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
I'm a Psychologist, speaker, and author with over 20 years of experience in the mental health field. I work with people looking to change behavior and emotional patterns to improve mental health and relationships at work and home.
Tell us about yourself
I always knew that I wanted a job that would help people and wouldn't feel like I was doing "work." Psychology was a great match for me, as it also allowed me to become my own boss and have the flexibility to pursue my other interests. Now I have the opportunity to write, speak, and teach on TV and other media about mental health issues affecting all of us.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
Raising three children while trying to grow my business. Restarting my business and building it up after moving from NY to FL after my divorce.
What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
Being a solo entrepreneur can definitely be isolating!
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- For every person who says you can't, surround yourself with 3 people who say you can.
- Take inspired action and listen to your gut because it is always right.
- Try to focus less on the amount of money you earn and more on the impact you are making.
