Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Michele Molitor, Founder of Nectar Consulting, Inc., located in Hayward, CA, USA.

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

I'm an executive coach and hypnotherapist. I've had my own company, Nectar Consulting, Inc., for over 20 years now. I serve high-performance professionals, business owners, and entrepreneurs, helping them to rapidly rewire their mindset for whole brain transformation using both the conscious and subconscious mind to uplevel their peace of mind, well-being, and success.

Tell us about yourself

In my previous career, I was a creative director in high tech. Sadly, I got bullied out of my job, and it created a massive case of imposter syndrome for me. The silver lining is that this led me to discover the benefits of coaching and what turned out to be my life's calling and purpose. I pivoted my career, became trained and certified as a leadership coach, and started my own company back in 2001. I'm fascinated by what makes us humans tick and behave in the ways we do.

I've become an avid learner of human dynamics, neuroscience, positive psychology, hypnosis, somatic and cognitive behavioral therapies, mindfulness, and meditation. All of which I weave into my work as a certified coach and hypnotherapist to help others release the emotional residue caught in their nervous system and rewire their mind, heart, and physiology with new thinking, habits, and behaviors with greater confidence, self-worth, and peace of mind.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

Unexpectedly started my business and maintaining it for over 20 years! Being of service to thousands of people worldwide through my work, programs, writings, and talks to create a deeper level of healing, joy, and career satisfaction.

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

Learning to let go and delegate effectively. Building a trustworthy team that will keep the trains running on time ;)

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

  1. Get clear on your WHY – what are your motivations, core values, and passions that you’re bringing to your business? These can serve as your north star. Without them, it’s easy to give up when things get tough.
  2. Identify your core team of advisors to help you see what you can’t see. In the areas that are not in your sweet spot – wearing too many hats is exhausting!
  3. Understand your own challenges and blind spots. The more you know yourself by raising your EQ and understanding your motivations and drivers, the more aware you’ll be of those on your team around you. Helping you to build a positive culture and a thriving business.
  4. Get your standard operating procedures in place so you can streamline your work as much as possible and be able to hand it over to others on your team as your company grows.
