Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in health and wellness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Karen Thrush, Founder of Karen's Infinite Health, located in Swindon, Wiltshire, UK.

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

I am all about helping people to improve their health and wellness. Using Kinesiology, EFT Tapping, Body Ballancer Lymphatic Massage and Reiki. I also teach beginners kinesiology classes and reiki. My customers are anyone looking to improve their health or those suffering from health issues and struggling to find solutions.

Tell us about yourself

I began working as a kinesiologist after my child had been unwell for several years. Kinesiology found the solutions we had been looking for and her health improved instantly. After the experience we had, I decided to train to become a kinesiologist to help other families who may be in the same situation as we were. As I discovered more helpful tools, I added these to my kinesiology skills to help clients even more. My motivation each day is to ease clients suffering, as there are many ways I can help them. I know what it feels like when there seems to be no way forward and there is always an answer. Kinesiology communicates with the body using muscle testing to find the answers.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

To teach others the skills I have learnt is a great achievement. I teach on behalf of The Academy of Systematic Kinesiology, the oldest Kinesiology Training School in the UK. Spreading kinesiology will mean that more people will get access to and help from kinesiology.

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

The hardest thing I found as a business owner is there are so many hats. It is not just seeing clients and helping them. There is so much time needed for marketing, accounts, and admin tasks. Setting time away from client time to complete these tasks is important and something I have had to learn to do.

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

  1. Just do it. You will never be 100% ready. Your business will evolve as you will too. If you are passionate about your business, it will succeed.
  2. Get a coach/mentor or find a business buddy to help you and learn from their experience. It is good to have someone to talk to and sound out your ideas who is supportive.
  3. Be patient. It will get easier, and make sure it's fun from day one.
