Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in health and wellness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Yocelin Grajales, Owner of Phoenix Migraine Relief LLC., located in Phoenix, AZ, USA.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
My business is massage therapy, and I work with people who suffer from migraines and/or headaches as well as temporomandibular joint dysfunction.
Tell us about yourself
My motivation was that when I started to receive massages especially cranial sacral and myofascial release, for my own migraines, I was amazed how it decreased the frequency of my episodes. I never realized that my neck and shoulders had some contribution to my triggers for migraines and daily headaches. My motivation is to help and reach as many people as I can to feel the same relief I have felt. Also, educating my clients on self-care. The benefits massage actually has as an impact on health and wellness.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
Having flexibility in my day-to-day life. Work and personal balance. And that I can be part of people's healing journey in getting them out of pain for a longer duration.
What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
The hardest thing for me as a business owner is being recognized as a professional with my skill set. And also marketing.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
Definitely do the research, be patient and never give up. It can get hard, but it’s all worth it.
Is there anything else you'd like to share?
If you have a skill set and can make your own business, just do it.
