Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in personal and business development but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Lenae Meyers, Founder of The Virtual Nae, located in Washington, DC, USA.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
I am the founder of The Virtual Nae. We help female entrepreneurs combat burnout and overwhelm by managing their energy so they can live a life of ease. We are based in Washington, DC, but we serve clients all over the world. Our clients are online business owners—course creators, virtual assistants, and service providers—who are stuck in moving forward in their business and are almost at the point where they want to fully invest their time into a 9-5. They are not quite sure how to get out of burnout and are avoiding their business–the very thing that they want to flourish. They are willing to learn and DIY; they just need some guidance so they can do it right the first time.
Tell us about yourself
I started my company in June 2020, I was laid off and working, but I wasn't fulfilled in the work I was doing. I knew my true passion was helping people and wanted to create a business centered around that. I started by offering virtual assistant services to female entrepreneurs who were overwhelmed with their back end and were in need of systems and implementation. Today, I have shifted to energy management coaching, where I help entrepreneurs live a life of ease by creating planning systems, identifying their energy zones, and implementing self-care in their day to day.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
My biggest accomplishment as a business owner is helping my clients identify their energy cycles in order to help them save time and energy throughout their day.
What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
One of the hardest things that come with being a business owner has to be the mindset shift. As entrepreneurs, we constantly deal with imposter syndrome, which leads us to stop showing up. Every day we must remember our way to keep us going. The work we do every day is important to not only us but our audience as well. Keep showing up!
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- Done is better than perfect.
- Do the Right thing at the Right time.
- Consistency is key.
