Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Brooke Pethke, Founder of My Inner Wellness, located in Appleton, WI, USA.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
At My Inner Wellness, we aim to help others on their journey to living a healthy, abundant, and joyous life. We look at all three aspects of your health: mind, body, and soul because all three are very important to our health. We look at the root cause of potential health concerns and aim to try to change your situation using clean and holistic methods. We aim to help anyone looking to change their life, so they can live a life connected to themselves and live out the life they wish to live. If you are looking for a more holistic approach to changing your health around, that is what we do. We work with all ages but especially love to work with families.
Tell us about yourself
In 2017, I faced a low point in my life with my physical health battling Crohn's disease; not only was my physical health at a low but my mental, emotional and spiritual health was also being destroyed. At that point, I decided to take my health into my own hands and go a holistic route and was able to change my health, mind, body, and soul. From the lowest of lows, I was able to rise up and live the most magical and aligned life I wished to live, and in seeing the power that we can take our health in our hands, I knew I needed to make it my life's work to help others do the same. If we listen to our bodies and become more in tune, we can really start to change our situation.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
My biggest accomplishment as a business owner is each and every person that comes through my door and making sure they leave feeling more seen, heard, supported, and empowered than when they came in because, in the end, that is all that matters to me as a business owner.
What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
One of the hardest things that come with being a holistic business owner is that it can come with a lot of adversity. People may not believe in your passion and just accept that it is okay and that you can still do anything you put your mind to because there will be people out there that believe in what you have to offer.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- Never give up on what you believe in. If you believe and put in the work, it will lead to success in whatever that looks like to you.
- Listen to your heart when starting your business. Is this business being created out of love and passion, or is it being created solely for monetary purposes and not something you are passionate about? You want your heart to be full, not just your pockets.
- Investing in yourself can be really scary. Be smart with your investment, but know that you are worth investing in when it comes to making your dreams a reality.
