Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in health and wellness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Stephanie Katona, founder of SKLPT Your Life, located in Toronto, Canada.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
I own an online and one on one Personal Training Business. My philosophy and approach is an all-encompassing holistic approach to health and wellness. My clientele consists of women and men from the ages of 25 years + who are looking to create a sustainable lifestyle, improve their daily habits and cultivate a healthy relationship with their bodies.
Tell us about yourself
I'm an entrepreneur, writer, speaker, fitness enthusiast with an unwavering commitment to personal growth. My business was derived out of personal inspiration. My personal struggles with body image, self-acceptance, and self-sabotaging behaviors became the fuel for me to want to help and serve others. I mined the gold from those difficult experiences. I wanted to take the lessons I learned from my own journey and guide others on their path to truly stepping into their own power and cultivating more inner peace, confidence, and self-love.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
My biggest accomplishment has been my client acquisition and retention and transforming so many lives from the inside out over the course of the last 10 years.
What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
Wearing all the different hats and juggling many responsibilities. Learning how to delegate tasks and build a solid team to run the business like a well-oiled machine takes time.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- Focus on one step at a time, don't overwhelm yourself with all the details of how everything is going to work out.
- have fun with it and enjoy the process, expect ups and downs, and embrace the journey
- Always keep your "Why" in mind and your purpose so that when things get hard, you can always remind yourself why you're doing what you're doing.
- Make friends with fear. It will always be a player in your life but how you work with fear is key when it comes to taking the next step and facing new challenges.
