Tell us about yourself
My name is Linda Parelli, and I was born in Singapore and grew up in Sydney, Australia, and immigrated to America in 1993. I am the co-founder of Happy Horse Happy Life, Parelli Natural Horsemanship, and Pegasus Personal Growth. I am a dynamic public speaker and author of numerous articles, books, courses, DVDs, self-development, and equestrian programs. I am the leading female expert on horse psychology-based training and mindful riding, empowering my students to be better leaders, riders, and communicators with my unique approach to teaching. I am very driven, inspired, and highly motivated by the results and changes my approach helps people to achieve with their horse - a more positive relationship, better leadership, communication, and riding... all of which make a happier horse! I am also privileged to have wonderful business partners (Sue and Andrew Flockhart) who are also passionate about producing a life-changing program.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
Having a successful, profitable business that I enjoy every day.
What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
Having a clear vision and the discipline to stay on track. It is easy to get distracted by something new and interesting rather than staying focused on the goal and making the members feel connected to me, important, and heard.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- Have a clear vision.
- Be disciplined about the goals and process.
- Be passionate about it - it brings special energy.
