Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in personal development but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Eva Teja. She is an Embodiment Coach based in Vienna, Austria.

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

I am a coach, doula, and facilitator. I mainly work in the field of women's health and help women to reconnect with their femininity and the pleasure of being a woman. My main tool is the menstrual cycle. My clients are women who want to deepen their relationships with their feminine selves. These pregnant people need birth support and women with a longing to understand their bodies and menstrual cycle.

Tell us about yourself

I started my business six years ago. First, I began teaching meditation and yoga classes. But then I saw the need for women to express themselves and find spaces where they can openly talk about their issues with their menstrual cycles, so I started facilitating women's circles, retreats, and workshops on the topic. At the same time, I had painful periods myself, which is why I started reading more books on the topic, informing myself, and doing courses and trainings. I gathered more and more information and felt inspired to share it and let it influence my movement practice and the way I think about my work and daily life. I am passionate about making women feel more at home in their bodies and making them realize the gift of being a woman with an innate, natural cycle that governs our daily lives.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

There are many. I am most satisfied when I get feedback from my clients on how their lives have transformed by living a more cyclical life. So the number of women I have touched with this work and the women I have reached through retreats, my year program, and my podcast is my biggest accomplishment.

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

The ups and downs of navigating supply and demand, having to advertise for every workshop and then hope that people will be interested and show up. And never knowing whether the next great idea will actually pay off.

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

  1. Offer something you are really good at and love doing.
  2. Have a business plan and know where you are going with your business.
  3. Be patient and know when to let go.

Is there anything else you'd like to share?

I think it's really important to allow yourself to fail and get up again. Failing is part of the process. It's how you will learn.
