Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in mental wellness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Tanisha Robinson, Founder of Imani Holistic Counseling, LLC., located in Springfield, VA, USA.

What's your business, and who are your customers?

I own two businesses. My private practice is Imani Holistic Counseling LLC. I provide mental health counseling, psycho-education workshops, clinical supervision, and various evaluations.

The other business is BeeeWellness, and there, I provide wellness products- tea blends, candles, and oils (soon to be added). My customers want to focus on the wellness from a mix of eastern and western management styles.

Tell us about yourself

I became interested in social work in college. I knew I wanted to work in population health and helping to support others in their needs. Mental health was underutilized at the time, and since the pandemic, we have become much more heavily utilized overall.

I can help many people in many mental health and wellness areas with these two businesses. I enjoy seeing and hearing how well people are doing thanks to my products or services. It is something that helps me stay motivated, even on tough days.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

Hitting six figures in revenue this year is my biggest accomplishment from a business perspective. From a person-centered perspective, I love the teaching I do in clinical supervision the most.

What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?

Making time to do the administrative tasks that help the business function on the back end. It can be a lot to juggle.

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

  1. Make sure you are organized; if not, get help.
  2. Get a business coach to help you determine what you want and how to do it.
  3. Don’t lose sight of the end goal you have for yourself.

Where can people find you and your business?
