Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Lenka Boglevsky, Owner of Precious Time Crystals, located in Bridgenorth, ON, Canada.

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

Precious Time Crystals is my shop on Etsy, where I connect Seekers on the healing path with an array of intuitively curated crystals and other metaphysical and energy healing items. Everything on offer is specifically selected to attune to the Seeker, from crystal novice to experienced crystal collector. When you buy from Precious Time Crystals, you are getting more than a rock. Each item in my shop is selected by me and sent with love.

Tell us about yourself

I started Precious Time Crystals as a passion project to share my love of crystals with others. It all began with a Reiki session many years ago when I was first introduced to the energy of crystals. My curiosity about the healing properties and potential of crystals ignited the healer-maker in me. I enjoy working with the energy of crystals, and I am passionate about learning all I can. I also love the creative side of my business as I am learning to make new things that incorporate crystals that I can add to my shop. I am motivated each day because I love what I do.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

My biggest accomplishment is growing my business from an idea into a successful shop, working solely for myself.

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

Managing it all, as a small business owner, you must learn all aspects of running a business. This takes time, patience, and perseverance. The good news is that it becomes easier once you get organized and develop systems to run your business.

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

Dream big and have the courage to speak your idea into existence, do your research and stay organized.

Is there anything else you'd like to share?

May you receive all the love and healing potential that your crystals have for you.
