Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in personal development but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Dyann Bridges, Founder of The Relaters Manual, located in New York, NY, USA.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
I am a life/performance/executive coach and confidante for Men.
Tell us about yourself
Men don't have anyone to talk to about the most profound aspects of their being. Men have many things they've experienced and thoughts on their minds they don't dare tell anyone. Yet, they want and need to get it out of their system, and they don't want to tell their male buddies and won't tell anyone in their family.
They prefer to speak to a mature, non-judgmental, and compassionate woman. That's where I come in. Too many men are either running away from their masculine instincts and becoming "soft," while others are hyper-aggressive. Neither approach works very well. I'm on a mission to help men become balanced and strong. We need good, respectful leadership from men more now than ever.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
I make a living primarily based on technology, digital products, courses, over the phone, and through Zoom calls. Lots of people want to do that, and I taught myself how. It's challenging to do that because too many people online tell others it's easy when it's not. It's not an easy path, and it took me a few years to get it, but now that it's rolling, I consider this a huge victory.
What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
Trying to do everything yourself and then trying to find someone to help you doesn't make the process more difficult.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
Know what you want to offer.
Where can people find you and your business?
