Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in health and wellness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Winnie Chan Wang, Founder of Mindful Healing Heart, located in Pasadena, CA, USA.

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

Most people healing from trauma think you have to do a lot of work to heal, and it takes a long time to reclaim your capacities for pleasure, engagement, self-control, and trust. We will reprogram the negative information at your soul, heart, mind, energy, and body levels.

Because the body keeps the score, when we heal from our deepest traumas, clients have reported recovering their eyesight, stopping irregular bleeding between periods, no longer having nasal allergies, repairing relationship fractures, and landing business opportunities. Their health, finances, and relationships have been transformed!

Tell us about yourself

I have four science degrees, am a licensed acupuncturist, and am committed to delivering results. As a bestselling author, international speaker, and licensed acupuncturist serving as the co-facilitator, guiding everyone through each shadow and their integration. I have carefully served as the Yelp reviewer of spiritual services by connecting people with the best healers from each modality, each with different expertise. I deliver blessings from Source in each class, rocketing students along on their journey to integrate each shadow and enjoy the pleasure, fun, and fulfillment that awaits each of us when we integrate our shadows and transform them into light.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

Master of Science degree in Oriental Medicine from Alhambra Medical University. I am the recipient of the President's Award for academic excellence and the Internship Award for my dedication to the TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) clinic. Before starting my traditional medicine business, I earned dual bachelor of science degrees in Computer Science and Finance from MIT, a master of science degree in Integrated Marketing from NYU, and worked on Wall Street. A doctoral candidate in Integrative Medicine and am currently based in Los Angeles, California.

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

There is no “one size fits all” manual on how to live the best life. We all want to live in abundance, yet we all have blind spots and limited thinking.

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

• Living your best life is a combination of science AND spiritual practices.

• Living your best life is a combination of doing what has driven lots of successful results (data points) AND creating miracles that have never been done before.

• Living your best life is a combination of trying really hard and never giving up on your dreams AND letting go of control, surrendering, and trusting the process.

Is there anything else you'd like to share?

Ask yourself these questions:
• How can I shift from being the victim to the author of my life?
• How can I overcome the fear of making mistakes?
• How can I turn anxiety off like an on-off switch?
• How can I break free from the "I'm a bad mom" guilt?
• How can sharing our shame help to heal others?
