Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in personal development but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Lori Clark, founder of Lori Clark Coaching, located in Greenville, SC, USA.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
I have a life coaching business that I am truly excited about. I aim to help individuals go from rags to riches mentally. With my coaching sessions, I want each and every person to know how unique and powerful they are no matter what life has thrown at them.
Tell us about yourself
I've always had a heart for people. I was always the one willing to listen, push people harder, or speak life into people. What motivates me is being able to see people realize there is no magic formula to life. It all comes from within. Additionally, what motivates me is knowing helping people change their way of thinking creates a whole new path in life for them. I love to see people do well.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
My biggest accomplishment is being able to connect with people internationally through life coaching. It is so rewarding to talk to people all around the world and ultimately learn we all have more in common than we realize.
What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
One of the hardest things about being a business owner for me is how hard I get on myself sometimes. Often times I look at consistency as a "daily drill." I'm learning to give myself more grace as time goes on.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- Decide if it is something you really want to do, and can you stick through it during times you have no sales/clients.
- Before you spend any money, come up with a plan and do as much research as you think you may need. Possibly connect with someone already doing well in the business you're interested in.
- Have an open mind. You may open a business and do extremely well, or you may not do so well at all. Both experiences can teach you a lot.
Is there anything else you'd like to share?
I am thrilled to be a life coach. I look forward to helping many more people around the world discover their true potential, live the life they deserve, and help them understand life is a journey worth living.
