Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in personal development but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Junie Moon, CEO of Midlife Love Out Loud, located in Montclair, NJ, USA.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
When women turn 40, something happens. Some call it a midlife crisis. I call it a midlife awakening. After giving so much to their families and careers, women realize there is more to life and love…and they want it. The sad thing is that many don't believe they deserve a higher love or that it's even possible for them. It breaks my heart when women convince themselves that their life is fine, just as it is, and give up on Next Level Love.
Because there is another way forward in the second half of life…and that is awakening to your willingness to let yourself have all that you desire, and rather than settling for 'good enough' – doing whatever it takes to allow your second half of life to be even richer and fuller than the first half.
I help single women embrace this precious second half of life with confidence and excitement. There are different programs to choose from that help them open their hearts and call in love.
Tell us about yourself
I was married to a very selfish man with a spicy temper. I stayed in that relationship for 20 years! I was scared to make waves, so I walked on eggshells, afraid to stand up for myself or ask for my needs to be met. I had knots in my stomach on a regular basis. I ate so much in an attempt to self-soothe that I ended up at my highest weight ever: 200 pounds. I was miserable.
I tried for years to make it work. I hoped for healing. I pleaded with him to get the support we needed, but he wasn't having any of it. He said I was the problem and wouldn't take any responsibility. With that, I finally left him.
I wanted different. I wanted to heal. So I also invested in working with a relationship mentor. I had some blind spots that only a mentor could help me dissolve. Doing the deep Shadow Work® with her helped me lower the volume of my inner negative thinking and see myself more clearly. I began to truly love myself.
My mentor also helped me get my voice back so that I could ask for what I wanted without feeling guilty or ashamed. I also learned how to date successfully, so I wasn't wasting any more time looking for my soulmate. Getting support and being willing to do this deeper work allowed me to heal the past and create a new life full of Next Level Love. Because once I was able to heal my old, toxic relationship patterns and experience Next Level Love, I knew I had to share what I learned with other amazing women who are in their second half of life.
I've developed a step-by-step process to help women unpack the past and truly let it go so they can know their own worth. It's my absolute joy to support women in becoming their own soulmates which allows them to receive their Next Level Love experience with a soulmate. The more hearts that are healed in the world, the better the world will be. That's what gets me out of bed each day.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
Coaching women to know their worth which leads them to create healthy and healthy partnerships, fills my heart. One of my favorite accomplishments was helping women break a life-long pattern of picking men that were not a fit. She did the work; she shifted and met the man of her dreams. They just got married last month!
What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
For me, the hardest thing as a business owner is helping women know their value enough to invest in themselves so that they can actually heal. We have not been taught to invest in our hearts. We've been told to save our money to buy a car, get another degree or join the gym to lose weight. It takes courage to look at oneself and realize something isn't working and then say, "I've worth investing in me! ".
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
My 3-tips to start, run and grow a business are to get clear about who you want to serve, why you want to serve them, and then hire a coach to help you reach those people. Just because you have a passion and a population that needs you, marketing is a thing.
Is there anything else you'd like to share?
Being connected to your heart and following what really makes it sing will guide you to a beautiful life. If you're not living your best life and have a lot of fear that holds you back, that's a sign that healing is needed. Get the support so you can thrive. You deserve it!
