Tell me a little bit about your business and what you offer.
As a Teacher & Meditation Coach, I support and teach people to connect with themselves and to learn more about mindfulness, awareness, and consciousness. My workshops and programs provide participants with tools & techniques to recognize old habits and limiting thought patterns and how to move beyond them. The goal is to become more accepting, more approving, and more loving toward ourselves. From that place, we can create anything.
What impact are you trying to have with your business?
I want to encourage others to look inside, practice self-care, be curious about mindfulness and let go of any restrictions and negative self-talk. It can be scary to take a moment, pause, and really look at where you are in life. But awareness is the first step in fulfilling your dreams & desires.
I also want to promote self-care and mental health in a corporate setting. Many companies are already supporting a healthy work-life balance, offering health programs to their employees. I want to bring in programs focusing on mental health & stress relief.
What's your story? How did you get to where you are in business or how was your business started?
Deciding to start my own business was a big step for me. I had worked in IT for 13 years. The tech industry is growing and full of opportunities, but after being laid off in 2019, I had the chance to walk down a different path and said yes to my new vision.
Are there any lessons you've learned along the way?
Nothing is set in stone. Change is the only constant. Especially in the beginning, there are lots of decisions to make. Some of them are easy, and some of them seem impossible. You may ponder and wonder all day long about the "right" decision or the "right" approach, but at the end of the day, it is essential that you make one and take your next step.
What was it like for you to do a Personal Branding Session?
It was a fantastic experience! Yvonne made everything so easy and effortless for me. Thanks to her, I felt extremely comfortable and natural in front of the camera. I was able to relax and be myself. The stories we picked helped me narrow down my brand and focus on what I stand for and have to offer. It also motivated me, gave me lots of great ideas, and I was thrilled to see the final results!
