Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in personal development but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Jane Siegel, owner of Your Next Chapter Coach, located in Williamsburg, Virginia, United States.

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

I am a licensed counselor and a life coach. This means if you get stuck going forward, we can figure out what from your past might be keeping you stuck.

Tell us about yourself

I knew that I wanted to help people! I am so very lucky to love what I do for a living, and my experience tells me that loving what I do is a real blessing and motivates me every day.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

Doing the work I love and being successful at it.

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

Riding the ups and downs of the economy.

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

Have a passion for what you are doing. Make a business plan including a vision and a mission statement. Do your research.

Is there anything else you'd like to share?

Transitions are a part of life! Sometimes we get stuck in a hallway with one door closed and the other one not yet open. Being in the hallway is really hard sometimes waiting.... waiting.... waiting.... staying the course and having faith that on the other-side of the door it is going be perfect, exactly what you need. Hang in there!
