Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Colleen Lemma, Founder of Sacred Soul Empowerment, located in Simpsonville, SC, USA.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
My business and website name is Sacred Soul Empowerment. I chose this name because it is my mission to empower sacred souls (people) on their path. Sacred Soul Empowerment is a business that assists people on their Path to Wholeness. It is here to inspire, encourage, motivate, re-ignite the spark and provide guidance to stimulate and awaken a person's internal truth. I have been passionately following my purpose and assisting others for over 20 years. I am very fortunate that my client base is in many different countries all over the world.
Tell us about yourself
For over 20 years, I have been an intuitive reader, professional astrologer, numerologist, Reiki Master, and spiritual teacher, along with being certified in hypnosis, past life regression, and Ho'oponopono Healing. I work with the Archangels, Ascended Masters, Star Brothers and Sisters, and Ancestors of the Light to bring awakening, guidance, and empowerment into a person's life. When I connect with a client, I utilize a unique combination of Astrology, Numerology, Name Vibration & Divination Cards to blend the astrological birth chart and the soul's name vibration and connect with one's personal angels and guides.
I also have a YouTube channel where I freely share my Weekly and Monthly Empowered Moments Videos, which give guided messages to the collective, and personally regarding our spiritual growth and evolution as souls - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYXeor05zWy2mcAyw_J_s7w?app=desktop
From the time I was a child, I always wanted to help people. This led me to get my degree in social work and psychology. With my early education and work background, combined with my innate intuitive abilities and insight, I am able to assist and guide a person to the answers and solutions that will connect them with their inner power and Divine Spiritual Truth. The results that I see when others open up to shine their inner light is what motivates me every day!
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
I was led by Spirit to create a line of spiritual products to help a person spiritually awaken and move forward on their healing journey. Some of these sacred tools are sprays, elixirs, essential oils, and handcrafted jewelry. All of my products are infused with special intentions using Reiki during meditation, calling in specific Archangels, Ascended Masters, and Ancestors of the Light. The products are charged with Positive Frequencies of 528 and 432 Hz and with the energies of the Full Moon & Sun for three days.
It is quite the process but an extremely enjoyable one as I know that these spiritual products are helping many on their journey of self-discovery, healing, and empowerment.
What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
I'm not sure that I would even call this a challenge, as I love what I do, but it is necessary to stay organized and motivated to work by yourself and for yourself. I operate my business through zoom or phone sessions from the comfort of my own home, and sometimes it would be all too easy to allow outside distractions to redirect my focus away from what I am doing. But distractions in life, whether from loved ones or outside circumstances, are part of the course. I believe that challenges in our lives help us to grow. They also provide us with opportunities to experience something new or redirect us onto a new path when the old path has outgrown us.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
My first tip would be to do what you love and are passionate about. This makes working for yourself and owning a business fun and enjoyable! Everyone should experience the happiness and fulfillment that comes from expressing and sharing your gifts with others!
My second tip is to be patient with the process and give your business time to blossom and grow. Giving birth to something new is like a woman giving birth to a child. It can be filled with challenges and surprises along the way and may take longer than you expect, but it is always very worth it in the end.
And my third tip would be to have confidence and be yourself! Shine your unique gifts, talents, and light out into the world! The world needs each and every one of us to express our truth!
Is there anything else you'd like to share?
You are all beautiful and gifted souls on a spiritual journey, uncovering your Sacred and Divine Truth! Open your hearts to the truth of who you really are! You are a sacred spark of the Divine Source! It is time to live your truth, own your spiritual power, and BE empowered!
