Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Tifphanie Stiff, Founder of Transformation Coaching, located in Worcester, MA, USA.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
I currently run a transformation coaching business from home online. My customers are usually people who have been in a toxic relationship and are looking for help.
Tell us about yourself
My name is Tifphanie. I started my life coaching business after being in a series of toxic relationships. I learned that my last relationship pushed me to my purpose. I went to school to become a life coach and received my certification. Shortly after, I started my own life coaching business called Transformation Coaching. I sometimes like to incorporate spirituality into my sessions, but that's only if my client is OK with it. I am motivated because I see many people who have been to the same thing as me. I was unaware of how many people were suffering from the same toxic relationship I had been in until I went online. My goal is to spread awareness to people about how these relationships can be detrimental to your health. I also like to educate people on toxic relationships, how I heal from them and how they can heal as well.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
My biggest accomplishment as a business owner was finding someone who had been through the same thing as me. I was then introduced to another business coach that helped me start my business. Currently, I work with a business coach and an accountability coach that helps me build my brand and network. I never thought I would own my own business, but it's something I always wanted to do; it's the biggest accomplishment that I have made in my life so far.
What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
The hardest thing that comes with being a business owner is attracting new customers. The people I usually market towards sometimes have difficulty trusting people. They usually think I am after their money when I only try to attract their business to help them.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- Find people who support your dreams and your beliefs. Usually, when you start a business, you will attract a new soul tribe.
- Don't let others talk you out of your goals! Starting a business is hard; sometimes, you may want to quit, but keep going even if you fail!
- Remember that you are the greatest project you'll ever work on! It is in our darkest moments that we must focus to see the light! "ARISTOTLE ONASSIS "
