Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in health and wellness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Jessica Pearson, Co-Founder of Path Nutrition, located in Austin, TX, USA.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
Path Nutrition empowers you to learn what nourishes you, removes confusion about nutrition, and helps you build a healthy relationship with your body and food. You are not out of control or off the wagon! We remove guilt and shame so you can build better habits moving forward that feel good inside and out.
Tell us about yourself
I help clients who are struggling with body image, weight, and their relationship with food to create results that last. I am motivated to help women feel good about themselves exactly as they are, and if they also make changes, then that's the icing on the cake.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
I am very proud of our podcast, Weight a Minute. It's a fun, creative outlet for our business, and when people tell me they learned something from it, that feels great too.
What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
The hardest part of being a business owner (and being human) is the obstacle of my own mind. I face many different circumstances that any business does, and my human brain wants to send messages of self-doubt every day. Yet, because I'm a Life Coach and I have the skill of self-coaching, I am constantly working on my mindset or getting coached so that I can keep showing up and taking action in my business. I try not to get in my own way!
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
My first tip is just to keep going. Keep showing up no matter what your pace. Just keep going. The second is that there is no being "finished" with your business. We put this imaginary finish line in our mind of "when we've made it," but the truth is if you're "done," then so is your business. It's not a to-do list but a living, growing work of art that requires ongoing evolution and nurturing, no matter what level you're at. Finally, learn how to coach yourself or get a coach. This is not a sales pitch because I'm not a business coach. I've personally experienced such growth from coaching that I believe in it to my core.
Is there anything else you'd like to share?
Success is not created overnight, and you may want to evaluate your definition of success. It might not be the bottom line but the lifestyle you create in the process or who you help along the way. Decide this ahead of time and keep revisiting it. You're already making an impact; just keep going.
