Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in personal development but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Melissa Field, located in Modesto, CA, USA.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
I create packages and courses that help people to discover the power and potential of their own minds and their own energy. My customers are all types of people who are on a path of self-discovery and awakening.
Tell us about yourself
I have always struggled with anxiety, low self-esteem, and negative self-talk. I began creating guided meditations that would help with my own healing. As I learned more about neuroplasticity and the power of visualization, I began creating packages and courses to help others to rewire and reprogram their own minds as quickly and easily as possible.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
I felt the most accomplished when I created my own meditation membership. Previously, all my meditations were free, and when I created my membership and began valuing my own work, I knew I was entering a new chapter.
What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?
For me, the hardest thing is the fear that people will be disappointed in what they buy from me. I genuinely want people to heal and feel better from using my work, and I hope people are satisfied with what I have created.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
Number one, know that your mental health is a big part of your ability to run a business. Always take care of yourself. Two, when things go wrong or are not as planned, be kind to yourself. EVERYONE makes mistakes, and learning how to navigate mistakes and failures is essential to your growth. Three, let go of everything you can at the end of the day. See each day as a fresh start, as a chance to try again and do your best. What's done is done. Keep looking forward.
