Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in professional training and coaching but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Briony McKenzie, Founder of Untapped, located in Lisbon, Portugal.

What's your business, and who are your customers?

Untapped is a transformational education & coaching company that offers immersive workshops, events, and online coaching programmes to empower women to step into their full potential in business, leadership & wealth.

Tell us about yourself

After several years as a top-tier corporate lawyer, I knew deep down it wasn't what I was truly here to do. Feeling lonely and confused, I dove deep into the world of personal growth and discovered my true calling. Since then, I have built a 7-figure coaching company, impacted thousands of lives through our programmes, workshops, and training events, and built an extraordinary team & community.

As a leadership trainer, wealth creation strategist, and life & business coach, I am incredibly committed to making personal growth mainstream and reminding people of the power that was always within so that we can all make our unique impact.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

Building a powerful team to deliver on our vision.

What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?

The constantness of being 'on' and thinking about so many moving parts of the business.

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

  1. Invest in mentorship that can give you a roadmap and a powerful belief system to model.
  2. The goalpost will always move; there will always be another goal, another milestone, so be sure to celebrate every win.
  3. Fall in love with your customers. Ask for feedback, create what they need, and add more value.

Where can people find you and your business?
