Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in personal development but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Fatima Artiga, owner of Fatima Artiga Coaching, located in Omaha, NE, USA.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
After many, many trials and errors, I finally concluded that I'm here to help other women who are suffering or that are stuck with the same things that I have been battling. To be completely raw and honest, I must say that I have never been the smartest, the most brilliant, or the bravest, but I know one thing, and its that I have a voice, and I will use that voice to help and empower other women to find their true self by helping them discover more about their sexuality and exponentially explode their confidence.
The woman that I serve right now it's my most important client, and it's myself. The woman that I will serve is no other than the woman who is ready to step forward and be ready to take my hand and welcome the next chapter in her life because I'm the connector between them and their inspiration. I'm just a channel for them to learn more about themselves and be who they truly are by using and exploding all their talents. The woman I serve is ready to become a woman, a woman with all that it implies.
Tell us about yourself
Reading and learning more about myself and about Mindset and philosophy is what I do. Learning about the things that I wish I would know years before would have given me the strength and the wisdom to face certain situations in my life. Moments in my life, such as the time when I was deeply unhappy in my marriage but that my husband and I were able to turn around. Or so many things that I was so afraid to tell anyone, not to mention my husband. Ignoring the fact that I felt such shame was because I didn't learn to be honest. The biggest thing that keeps me going every day is my desire to become that shining light to many other women.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
Never giving up. Understand that the entrepreneurial path has a lot of ups and downs, and it is worth enjoying the journey. In the process of becoming and trying different things, I found myself. I love myself more, and I understand that no matter what, I'll be okay and that I deserve all the good that life has to offer because I deserve it, and we deserve it.
What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?
We are all afraid of change, challenges, and responsibilities to different degrees. But being an entrepreneur, we need to be okay with the idea that it's okay to be scary, but we are doing things anyway because we trust. We trust in our power and our ability to make things happen.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
I'm no one to give advice. After all, who is? I'm here on the same ship as we all are. After all, some of the great lessons that I've learned have been that it's never too late to start again, to start something new, because it's worst to never at least try one thing than never try it at all. That if you feel that you are in the wrong place or with the wrong people, you might be right. Listening to your intuition never fails. And that you are more than worthy just because you are YOU, and that you are going to be okay after all if you believe it. After all, we are all in the same boat.
