Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in personal development but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Makeala Brittain, founder of Makeala Addell Life Coaching, LLC., located in Orlando, FL, USA.

What's your business, and who are your customers?

My life coaching business focuses on helping clients achieve the lifestyle they desire by creating habits that help them succeed and managing their busy lives so they are not exhausted at the end of the day!

Tell us about yourself

I am a proud Army brat, as we are called, so I understand having to adapt to life's changes. Feeling a bit stuck and overwhelmed, as though there was something more I was supposed to do, I received training as a Certified Professional Coach in 2017 and started my coaching practice. I have been educating and training in the personal development arena for eleven years. I am motivated and passionate about helping my clients clearly articulate their goals, identify potential roadblocks hindering them, and develop a vision for success. I enjoy what I do, and that motivates me to keep inspiring others.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

Not quitting!

What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?

For me, it was figuring out how to find and connect with ideal clients, especially in the first one to two years.

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

Be patient, seek mentorship, and do not try to implement every marketing strategy that exists; focus on 3-5 that you enjoy and get results.

Is there anything else you'd like to share?

If being a business owner is something you feel passionate about, put in the work, and do not let anyone discourage you from that goal.

Where can people find you and your business?
