Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in health and wellness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Faith Macauley, Founder of The Heart Center for Awakening, located in Seattle, WA, USA.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
The Heart Center is a space for coming together. We gather to practice yoga, healing arts, and co-creating a New Earth paradigm. Our customers come for yoga and stay for the community.
Tell us about yourself
I started practicing yoga to help manage trauma. It was the one practice that seemed to bring me peace and clarity. I also had a love for traveling, which led me to amazing spiritual retreat centers around the world. These places inspired me and gave me the experiences I needed to become a healer, teacher, and visionary for the New Earth.
I knew I wanted to combine my passion for yoga, healing, beauty, and spirit by creating a healing oasis in my hometown. I love offering my leadership to manage this beautiful space and the people who are a part of its sacred mission.
In this space, we are creating a new way of living that is heart-centered and focused on collective awakening.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
My biggest accomplishment in a physical sense was figuring out how to manifest the space and bring people together to fund and build it. In a spiritual sense, my biggest accomplishment is staying true to my values as a yogi and maintaining my integrity and alignment through authenticity and vulnerability. I believe this is what earns me the role of leader for this community.
What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
The hardest thing is trusting. We don’t have control over the ebbs and flows in abundance, but I am learning to listen to the cycles of rest and work. Taking business risks at the right time is an art that I am continuing to cultivate.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- Have a crystal clear vision and tell as many people as possible.
- Surround yourself with like-minded people.
- If you hate a specific task, hire someone to help!
