Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in health and wellness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Megan Hamrick, Founder of Pursuite Coaching, LLC., located in Maple Valley, WA, USA.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
Pursuite Coaching is a small health, wellness, and nutrition coaching company that aims to help people reach and maintain their health goals. I work with individuals of all ages to strengthen their pillars of health, Emotional, Spiritual, Occupational, Physical, Social, and Intellectual.
Tell us about yourself
I had the idea to start my business years ago when I was working as a Physical Therapist Assistant, which I still have a career in. I was seeing patients with chronic conditions, and if they had made better health choices, they wouldn't be dealing with chronic pain and/or injuries. I felt that I was limited in my position as a PTA to really counsel people on health and nutrition choices. I wanted to do more! I became a Certified Nutritionist and Certified Health and Wellness Coach to do just that. I started Pursuite Coaching to have the freedom to work with individuals on a holistic basis and to treat the whole person, not just the injury. I love helping people and helping them to see their true potential; it is what inspires me every day. I am incredibly proud and grateful for my small business.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
Every day that I get to help someone feel better in whatever aspect of life they are struggling with is truly an accomplishment.
What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?
For me, one of the hardest things when it comes to being a business owner is charging for my services. I am so excited to help that I forget that I am providing a service and that my fees are worth it.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
The top 3 tips I would give anyone that is looking to start, run and grow a business are:
- Take your time and truly define what you want to do and how you want to do it.
- Consistency, the constant, tedious tasks can really add up in the long run.
- Don't be afraid. You'll never know if you'll be successful if you never try.
