Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in business development but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Kyria Hudson, Online Business Manager, located in London, ON, Canada.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
I am an Online Business Manager. I help burnt-out business owners find balance in their workplace & streamline their business processes so they can keep feeling great about their entrepreneurial journey.
Tell us about yourself
I worked as an assistant in my corporate life and appreciated doing a variety of tasks. It also felt great supporting those around me so they could feel better knowing the job was getting crossed off the to-do list. Even before the pandemic, I knew I wanted to work remotely, so I focused on shifting to the online space!
I'm motivated every day knowing I'm helping a sister reach her entrepreneurial goals without the added stress and overwhelm of feeling like they need to accomplish everything themselves. It's amazing knowing that I provide services that allow them to build the business of their dreams while also giving them the space to feel balanced physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
Building long-term, valuable relationships with people I've connected with through my business.
What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
Setting boundaries! As an entrepreneur, you're always going to be thinking about your to-do list, where your next paycheck is coming from, how to improve your business, or the 1,000 other things we deal with daily. It's hard to avoid the grey area between business and personal life.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- The same love and encouragement you show to your clients should be shown to yourself.
- Rest IS productive. When you take time to recharge your batteries, you're ready to show up and make business magic.
- Don't get too focused on what others are doing or what you're "supposed" to do because sometimes, what works for one business doesn't work for another. Be mindful of what makes the most sense for you and what'll be sustainable long-term.
