What's your business, and who are your customers?
At Red House Wellness, you will experience a week unlike any other in your life. A week to explore your life's potential in an intimate and safe place.

Tell us about yourself
I am an ex-investment banker turned strategic and mindful entrepreneur who excels in creating efficient, scalable processes to drive team and company growth. I am obsessed with wellness and health to create a positive work-life balance, which ultimately inspired me to start Red House Wellness. I understand people seek to find creative solutions to their everyday challenges, so I wanted to create a space to foster growth and positivity. By hosting an intimate retreat with no more than eight guests, Red House Wellness has created an environment for transformational and lasting individual and collective growth. I believe it takes a single action step to start your journey, and at Red House Wellness, we help you take that step. I strive to find the potential in other people and help them feel empowered with their skill sets by providing tools, resources, and support. If you come to Red House Wellness, we will find your potential and help you nurture it.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
Seeing how people form a connection and achieve transformation is my proudest accomplishment as a business owner. Our goal at Red House Wellness is to empower our guests with tools they can use for any challenge that comes their way. We aspire to create a "ripple effect" for our guests, where they can leave Red House and teach others what they have learned to promote positive transformation and growth in the wider community.
What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?
The concept of "never giving up." If you are truly passionate about a business or idea, you are willing to face any obstacle that comes your way. We started our business during the pandemic, and the nature of our retreats is intimacy. Embracing intimacy during this time was extremely challenging and didn't stop us from spreading our message. Balancing your business with the rest of your life is also an obstacle. My business is everything to me, and it isn't everything to the people in my life; accepting that about my business has allowed me to grow it even more.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- Seek advice from every direction and be selective with what advice you listen to. Selective feedback is a powerful tool for growing a business since people will try and steer you in a million different directions, and being intentional about where you want to go will help you get there faster.
- Hire and find people you want to work with and respect. Having a team you get along with and trust is better than having a highly-skilled team you cannot trust. The team you get along with will be able to learn the skills they need to help you run your business.
- Enjoy what you do, and when the "joy" of your work is gone, stop your business. You must find joy in some part of your business to keep yourself and those around you happy. If that joy disappears or you decide to go in a different direction, it's a sign that you may need to shift your own focus.
