Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in personal development but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Sonia Kahlon, Founder of EverBlume, located in Carversville, PA, USA.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
EverBlume provides online small group recovery meetings with a recovery coach facilitator where each group is matched based on the characteristics of its members. The goal is conversation and connection. We are building a community that leverages peer support.
Tell us about yourself
I was sober for five years when I was blindsided by the breakup of my relationship of 18 years and had no idea how I would be able to maintain my sobriety and mental health. For years I had been a lurker at recovery meetings, but now I found they were either too large for me to feel comfortable sharing or the feedback and conversation I wanted were discouraged. I needed a small group of people maintaining their sobriety through a life transition to listen, give advice, and encouragement. That's why I created EverBlume.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
Building the EverBlume community - they provide each other with so much support and encouragement it is really beautiful to see.
What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?
There can be a feeling of isolation some days on the entrepreneurship journey. When you're making all the big decisions about finances and the path forward, it's important to have peers to bounce ideas off of.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- Be able to reflect on your strengths and weaknesses and delegate.
- Be passionate about your business, or you won't be able to sustain the commitment and energy needed to grow.
- Be willing to pivot based on feedback, data, and research.
