Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in health and wellness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Jothi Saldanha, Founder of Jothi Creative Wellness, located in Ajax, ON, Canada.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
Wellness group facilitation and individual coaching serving the community and workplace.
Tell us about yourself
I am a 52-year-old woman, partner of 28 years, and mother to two teens. I began my healing journey 16 years ago when my daughter was born and truly reclaimed my truth and purpose for the past 6 years. I have learned many healing and wellness modalities that have helped me and that I am now certified in to support and guide others. Jothi Creative Wellness was birthed from my journey back in 2016. I have many motivations that keep me going each day, and that is honouring myself, my source, my ancestors, my children, my community, and the legacy that I want to leave behind.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
I have been and continue to be recognized by my community and have won multiple awards for my practice. The biggest accomplishment is recently securing a multi-year contract with CBC Canada!
What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?
Outsourcing has been a challenge for me because my business means so much to me. I want anyone who I am working with to understand the value of what I do and honour it in the ways that I do. I know now, through lots of hard work, that we don't build alone and that it takes a village to foster and nurture the growth of a business.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- Ask for help and be clear about what it is you want and need.
- Don't be discouraged; remember your "WHY" and keep going!
- Value what you offer, and don't undercharge...charge your worth!
