Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Ann Chatfield, Founder of Power Portal Solutions, located in Saskatoon, SK, Canada.

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

Power Portal Solutions is a business dedicated to helping others reach their highest potential through intuitive and holistic healing practices using Akashic Record readings, Reiki, and the use of Power Portal mandalas. Our customers are people that need support on any level to get through the challenges and changes in their lives.

Tell us about yourself

I am motivated by seeing the light of a person's soul return after a session. I love providing services that help people with personal, abundance, health, emotional, and stress issues. I started taking classes many years ago to help with the issues I had in my own life and found the greatest joy in helping others.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

Channeling, writing, and publishing my book "Sacred Geometry For The Soul, Volume I." I started making mandalas about 6 years ago and have compiled them into a book with explanations and meanings of each mandala. They provide people with a different way of healing themselves or supporting their energy on all levels.

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

Making enough profit to be sustainable and having time to do it all!

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

  1. If you don't know how to do something, try it if you like... but don't be afraid to ask for help, pay for help...but get help when you need it. You don't have to do everything yourself.
  2. Dedicate certain times to specific tasks to stay on course. An example is that: Monday is dedicated to technology, Wednesday morning is market research, Friday morning is for paperwork, etc.
  3. When you work alone, it is easy to lose motivation, so this helps. Set yourself up for success, have someone to hold you accountable, a business coach, a board, or a team of friends. It is good to have people you can talk to, work with, and celebrate your wins with.
