Other parts of the business include writing books, blogging, speaking, and photography.

Tell us about yourself

I completed a bachelor's degree after high school, and later in life, I completed a Master's degree. After my master's degree, I decided to start my own business. Every day I am motivated by the changes that happen in people's lives due to therapy.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

Completing five books in the mental health field:

  • I Am Wonderfully Me: Positive Affirmations for Me! Volume 1-3
  • Reflective Meditations Trilogy: Unraveling My Trauma, Healing My Trauma and Letting Go-Forgiveness
  • Reflective Meditations Trilogy: Understanding My Authentic Self, Believing in Myself, Loving Myself, Plus Understanding My Boundaries.

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

One of the hardest parts of owning a business is building it to the place where you want it to be successful.

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

Follow your passions, be persistent, and believe in yourself.

Is there anything else you'd like to share?

If you are having difficulties in life, having a hard time coping, not sure where you are going, or have any other issues, stop and take a break. During this break, feel yourself grounded, align your spine to a natural position, and breathe into your diaphragm. This will help you relax! It helps with emotional control and helps you feel better.
