Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in coaching but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Linda Andrews, Founder of Lila Life, located in West Palm Beach, FL, USA.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
Lila Life is an Integrative Wellbeing Club helping our members transmute trauma and stress for well-being to uplevel in life and business. We support high performers that feel burnt out and unfulfilled in their day-to-day.
Tell us about yourself
Lila Life started as a concept while I was working in finance and doing my yoga teacher training. The word "lila" means divine play in Sanskrit, and I found this inspiring. As I was on my own quest for healing and well-being from life's traumas and stresses, I decided to leave finance and transition into full-time coaching. I created what I call Integrative Coaching, which is a blend of mindset, prosperity, and well-being tools and teachings. I have been in the lowest lows, including suicidal, bulimic, and abusing alcohol. As I healed and remembered my wholeness, I am inspired to inspire others to embark on this journey. The world can seem messed up for a myriad of reasons; this is how I help guarantee brighter tomorrow.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
Leaving my 6-figure career and going full-time into entrepreneurship in 2018.
What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
The failures are guaranteed; the quicker one can accept that and embrace them as part of the feedback loop of learning and growth, the better.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
Have a clear revenue plan as to how you deliver value to clients. Take 100 percent personal responsibility, and no one can breathe for you. Learn from your past, and commit to being 100% present.
Is there anything else you'd like to share?
The human experience is filled with stress and trauma, whether one wants to admit it or not. Judgment and comparison start to fade when one can recognize and have compassion for this fact. As this fades away as a distraction, one can step into aligned action and traction to what they care for most.
