Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in health and wellness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Luciana Camy, Founder of Lu Camy Hypnosis and Soul Coaching, located in Ithaca, NY, USA.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
I guide people to heal from trauma and recover their sense of self. I incorporate hypnotherapy and my intuitive gifts to guide a transformation process. Most people I work with seek to heal from a past experience and want to live a life of purpose.
Tell us about yourself
I was always interested in different healing modalities and spiritual practices to help me heal from trauma. As I recovered from my past, I came into contact with a desire to help others who went through similar experiences. I feel delighted to see people changing bad habits for example, and living healthier, more fulfilled lives.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
I think that as an immigrant, things can be more difficult. I came to the USA when I was 29 years old, with no money and no degree, and I didn't speak English very well.
But, in a few years, I was able to build an international practice and break free from cultural and social barriers. My greatest accomplishment is to see that my business is multicultural. I work with people from different backgrounds, and we can connect on a soul level despite the differences.
What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
For me is to be able to be organized when it comes to schedule, life-work balance, and budget. I am finally learning my lessons.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
It is essential to do what feels authentic to you, despite what others do. The soul of every business is the people behind it. If there is incongruence, your clients will feel it. Make sure you act and think with your values in every circumstance to thrive healthily.
For example, if you prioritize your business over your health, it will not work, you can still get rich, but you will not be fulfilled and might get burnout.
For me, growth is equal to well-being. Many people can be successful on the external, but internally they are furious and frustrated. Put on paper what is essential for you, why you do what you do, and how you will make it happen.
