Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in health and wellness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Dr. Orlena Kerek, Founder of Dr. Orlena, located in Girona, Spain.

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

I'm a doctor turned health coach. I teach women to lead a healthy life they love so they can feel amazing, lose weight and lead a long and healthy life.

Tell us about yourself

I'm a "retired" pediatric doctor. I have four kids and moved from the UK to Spain in 2011. I love swimming in the Mediterranean Sea and seeing all the amazing fish.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

Keeping going! LOL. There have been many times I wanted to give up. But somehow, I kept going.

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

Marketing and understanding that's a big part of my business. (I had no training in selling as a doctor.)

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

Get clear on what you want to do (and will enjoy doing.) Then keeping going. Get help (but pick your help carefully.)

Where can people find you and your business?
