Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in mental wellness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Nathan Peterson, Founder of OCD and Anxiety Online, located in Allen, TX, USA.

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

I create online courses for individuals to learn real treatment skills for those struggling with OCD, hair pulling, skin picking, and other anxiety-related disorder.

Tell us about yourself

I am a licensed therapist. I started treating OCD and anxiety-related disorders because the treatment actually works and is very straightforward. I am motivated by the many who share their experiences using my online courses and seeing success in their mental health.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

My biggest accomplishment is providing correct treatment strategies to those all around the world who may not have had access to these resources previously.

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

One of the hardest things about being a business owner is knowing that I cannot help everyone. I am so passionate about the treatment and making others feel better. Many reach out to me daily, asking for help, and I'm only one man.

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

  1. Do something you're actually passionate about.
  2. Find a need and try to fulfill it.
  3. Keep trying until you get it right.

Is there anything else you'd like to share?

You can find my online OCD courses on my website, and I also have a YouTube Channel with millions of views.

Where can people find you and your business?
