What's your business, and who are your customers?
I'm the Founder & Head Coach of MindAxis Life Coaching. I help unfulfilled Millennials create a Meaningful Life with my coaching program, The MindAxis Method™.
Tell us about yourself
In August 2020, I absolutely burned out and decided to take massive action in my life. Finding sobriety and channeling my energy to discovering the perfect hybrid between my skill set, interests, and purpose, I landed upon Life Coaching. It revolutionized everything for me. I had finally found an area of study and application that created the positive impact I desired and challenged me to evolve daily. I put everything into my preparation and worked daily to make my dream a reality.
In June 2021, I took it a level further. I left my Academia role in Clinical Research and transitioned into Life Coaching full-time. To really gather momentum, I relocated to Melbourne, Australia, and threw myself into the unknown. All or nothing. Eventually, after months of tunnel vision, in August 2021, MindAxis Life Coaching was born. A hybrid between Life Coaching and Mindset Coaching was created to revolutionize the Coaching space. I wanted to provide the world with impactful Coaching programs that are truly effective and personalized.
Since I stepped away from my Academia role in Clinical Research, I've served 50+ unfulfilled Millennials across four continents, helping them bridge the present day to their dream reality. My mission is to help unfulfilled Millennials create a Meaningful Life.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
My biggest accomplishment would be leading two companies I'm extremely passionate about. MindAxis Life Coaching and Astraeus Apparel are close to my heart, and I serve the world with services and products that improve people's lives. Bringing value to the world is my greatest accomplishment.
What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
The discipline to not give up. Times will get tough; it is not an easy path. In the beginning, moving on and trying something easier is tempting. Resisting this temptation is extremely difficult, yet it will reap great dividends if a person makes the right choice.
There are many temptations and distractions, alongside Shiny Object Syndrome, which threatens to derail a business owner. Niche down, focus on a few select things, and do them very, very well. This is the greatest hurdle I've faced as a business owner.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- Decide WHY you want to start and run a business. Link the WHY to a greater purpose beyond yourself. For example, family, children, retirement, etc.
- Give yourself a tight deadline to make it happen. The shorter your deadline, the more urgency you act with. Leave yourself no excuses, and you will make it a success.
- Collaborate frequently. You won't make it far alone, be sure to collaborate often with other business owners for mutual benefit.
