Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Julia Fetty, Owner of Jewel's Journeys, located in Chicago, IL, USA.

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

I own a spiritual and holistic wellness business offering manifestation coaching, reiki, sound healing, psychic oracle card readings, ecotherapy, expressive arts, superfoods, and newly added dance performances inspiring others to heal through movement. My customers are females looking to transform their lives into a life full of empowerment and abundance. I also work with individuals with disabilities when facilitating reiki healing.

Tell us about yourself

I was inspired to start my business because I felt some restrictions as a therapist. I was unable to teach others about how spirituality is connected to the healing journey. I also witnessed my own experiences using manifestation and energetics to transform my life. I understood the power of my experiences and felt motivated to share and coach women on how to pursue a more fulfilling life.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

Traveling to St. Croix, Virgin Islands, to facilitate sound healing at a yoga retreat!

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

One of the hardest things that come with being a business owner is learning how to perform each role: marketer, brand designer, recruiter, practitioner, etc. I am currently leading each title.

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

  1. Show up authentically.
  2. Be consistent and create discipline to accelerate growth.
  3. Believe in your ability to shine.

Is there anything else you'd like to share?

I would like to share that I am striving to grow my cliental who have an intellectual or developmental disability. One of my main goals is to help promote an alternate form of treatment that this population may value from.

For example:

  • Decrease OCD behaviors.
  • Relieve stress and anxiety.
  • Enhance mood.
  • Increase relaxation.
  • Strengthen self-esteem.
  • Promote mental clarity.
  • Reduce pain.
  • Treat other concerns that an individual or parents may have.
