Tell us about yourself
When I was 7 years old on my birthday, I was in bed with migraines, hot flashes, and nausea. While my friends were in the pool having fun. By the time I was 12 years old, I had to be injected into puberty because my testosterone levels were low, and estrogen was high. I also was gaining weight even though I was an avid athlete.
At 14 years old I had to have breast reduction surgery due to the increased estrogen. With all of this going on combined with years of abuse and bullying I began learning about alternative medicines while in high school. I also was totally into different religions, and herbs were a favorite among many, so I studied herbology as well aromatherapy. When I was 18, I went on a white-water rafting trip. I was taking a homeopathic remedy, that was prescribed by a naturopath, which was snake venom. That combined with caffeine and a hot sunny day mixed in my body with a perfect storm.
I got sunstroke and heatstroke combined with a messy allergic response to the remedy, and caffeine sent me to the hospital in anaphylactic shock. By the time I got to the hospital I had stopped breathing, and it took them 26 minutes to bring me back. Three days later I sat up in my hospital bed and said... "I think I need to be a healer" And that was how it all began.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
Surviving over a quarter of a century. Perseverance!
What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?
Timing. Timing is always hard. Whether Too Soon or Too Late. Perfect timing is Hard.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
Get yourself battle-ready. You are going to need resilience, team, resources, emotional IQ and so much more. SO. Prepare for the journey ahead. Ask for HELP. An amazing Guide will shorten the learning curve. BE YOU. You are not THEM. You are YOU. So be THAT. It amazes me how many try to emulate someone else rather than take the lessons of that person and integrate that into YOU. Any attempt at success being someone you are not will fail, even if the company is a success.
What are some of the things you put in place to maintain a healthy work/life balance?
I don't believe in that. Work is Life Life is Work. They are not separate entities.
Who are some of your favorite entrepreneurs and why?
Jim Rohn, Jay Abraham, Napolean Hill, Berny Dohrmann, I could go on and on: Bert Oliva, Robert Raymond, and Bucky Fuller.
