Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in health and wellness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Savio P. Clemente, Founder of The Human Resolve LLC, located in Yorktown Heights, NY, USA.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
I am a Board Certified wellness coach (NBC-HWC, ACC), #1 best-selling author, syndicated columnist, podcaster, stage 3 cancer survivor, and founder of The Human Resolve LLC. I coach cancer survivors to overcome the confusion and gain the clarity and confidence needed to get busy living in mind, body, and spirit. I empower health and wellness seekers to find meaning in the "why" and to cultivate resilience in their mindset.
Tell us about yourself
When you start your journey with cancer, the goal is remission, but I am also wise enough to know the experience came into my life for a reason. Where it would eventually lead was still a mystery.
After my five-year remission mark, I made a promise to myself to pursue a more embodied path in helping others from what I have gleaned and learned. True transformation is not granted through wishful thinking but always through willful action. None of us truly knows why cancer came into our lives, but we have a choice, and that choice is for us to honor the pain but not live by its shackles. I am able to give voice to those who have faced the ultimate fight and are still here to pick up the broken pieces.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
Serving the cancer survivor community and becoming a best-selling author with a book that is heart-centered and mission-driven - evidence that the story of hope resonates with so many. Interviewing notable celebrities, including tennis champion Venus WilliamsTV personalities Debra Messing, Carson Kressley, Ice-T, and voice actor Rob Paulsen and being featured on Fox News, The Wrap, Authority Magazine, Thrive Global, and BuzzFeed. Invited to cover numerous industry events in the United States and abroad, including the Web Summit, Ascend Conference, Global Wellness Summit, Consumer Electronics Show (CES), South by Southwest (SXSW), Black Entrepreneurs Day, Global Citizen Festival, and Collision in addition to media visits at various wellness resorts worldwide.
What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?
The energy you put into creating doesn't always result in monetary gain. It takes belief and perseverance. Patience and compassion to see the larger picture and the grit and stamina to overcome mindset blocks and naysayers.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- Create a vision. Without a roadmap, you are going nowhere. Be intentional about what you are creating. Don't be afraid to course correct, but also be confident in the process.
- Invest in yourself. Take calculated risks, and be forever optimistic. The day is never fully won; it is always a slow and steady ascent to the finish line.
- Work on self - with the support of experts like coaches, mentors, therapists, and consultants to work on limited beliefs, mindset, physical well-being, hindrances, imposter syndrome, emotional release, spiritual inquiry, and human relationships.
