Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in personal development but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Riana Milne, Life, Love & Relationship Coach, located in Boynton Beach, FL, USA.

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

I have the honor to Coach adults globally, ages 16-76, who have Unhealed, Unconscious Childhood Trauma that leads to traumatic love relationships, struggles in life and self-worth, and often in career success. I help my clients by using my Mindset for Success System and using over 28 Holistic Modalities to increase confidence, self-esteem and empower them to Create the Life They Desire & to Have the Love They Deserve.

Tell us about yourself

I discovered the important connection between Unhealed Childhood and Love Trauma when I went through a Toxic marriage. My Ex lost his job when a Secret Life was uncovered, and I annulled our marriage. He said, "I don't know why I sabotage everything I Love." I needed those answers for both of us, and no Therapist could help me. My research for my healing led me to discover the huge impact that past Childhood Trauma had on adult relationships and poor behavioral norms that were wreaking havoc in their adult lives today. In my Clinical Psychology MA Program, the term "Childhood Trauma" was not mentioned. Certainly, the deep trauma and mental health issues due to Love Trauma were not taught. I created Coaching Programs, Workbooks for Singles & Couples, and wrote two Bestselling books with my research; and knew I needed to take this information, and the solutions to these issues, out into the world.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

My hundreds of Testimonials from satisfied, incredibly happy clients who received an amazing Life & Love Transformation and went on to meet Emotionally Healthy Partners got engaged and married for years now. My Trauma Recovery System has been time-tested, and couples have been remaining together since 2006. I was also featured in FORBES and selected as "One of the Top 10 Coaches to Follow in 2021 by Wealth Insider Magazine, as well as received the Honor of "One of the Top 100 Successful Women around the Globe" by the Global Trade Chamber. I looked at my pain and made it my passion and my purpose, and I truly love making a difference in so many lives.

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

I love what I do, so I must be consciously aware of the time I spend on growing my business. COVID was not easy for two years, but I gave more personalized service and free classes to support my clients and those in my email family to help give them loving encouragement through such an anxious and traumatic time. As a coach, you must always keep learning and growing as only the strong and determined to survive over the long term.
