What made you take the leap in entrepreneurship?
I really love traveling but it was a challenge every time I did because not only was I spending money, but I wasn’t making any. I really wanted to be able to have some sort of income while traveling to make it a more sustainable part of my life.
What’s your favorite part about being your own boss?
My favorite part is being able to work whenever and wherever I was as long as I have my laptop! When I’m home, if I’m not doing my typical day to day work of teaching yoga and pilates, I’m able to go visit different coffee shops or restaurants to work on my laptop from there. It’s nice to be on my own schedule and have the freedom to pick and choose where I want to spend my time.
Do you have any work philosophies that drive your business?
My work philosophy is that work shouldn’t feel like work. It should be fun, motivating, and engaging. If you have a job that you truly love and feel passionate about, it doesn’t feel like “work”, and you don’t dread the weekdays anymore!
What does “bringing breath to business” mean for you and your brand?
“Bringing breath to business” to me means bringing a breath of fresh air into the industry both for my clients and for myself. When clients are working with me, I don’t want them to feel like they’re coming to an appointment or having a meeting, I want it to feel like a fresh, personable, engaging conversation between acquaintances. I feel that we both get the best out of the experience when it is handled this way!
What’s your biggest tip for social media success?
My biggest tip for social media success is to try to post once everyday, which can be quite the challenge, and to be open and vulnerable when sharing about yourself. I’m still working on social media success myself, and I am by no means a professional, but I find that I have the most success when sharing vulnerable parts of my life that people can relate to on a personal level. It can make people feel more connected to each other and want to start a deeper conversation.
What would be the one piece of advice you’d give to someone working to find their passion or purpose/piece of advice you’d give to someone working on building a brand/business?
My advice to people trying to find their purpose/passion is to keep trying things until you find one that just sticks! You could try 50 things that you just genuinely don’t feel passionate towards before you find your one true meaning or purpose, but don’t ever give up! Talk to your peers to find out what interests or hobbies they have, and see if you can join them a few times. If it doesn’t guide you to your passion at least you spent time connecting with a friend. Once you find it if you decide to build your brand through it, make the brand YOU. Everyone is unique, so your brand/business can be too; let it evolve as you evolve as a person.
