Why did you start your business and how long have you been running it?
It was handed down to me by the Universe and I have worked on building it with passion and determination for over 3 years now.
What struggles do you think most businesses face in your industry and what would you say they need to do to overcome them?
Standing out from the “competition”. Just be yourself and do what you do! Whoever comes to you is meant for you, whoever doesn’t, isn’t
What has been your greatest accomplishment?
In business- attaining my Reiki Mastership and creating the Goddess Be You- Shine your Goddess Light Love Coaching Program.
What has been your biggest ‘fail’ so far?
No failures, all learning curves
What do you love most about your business?
It is fun because it is my Purpose and my passion. It impersonates and embodies Who I Am.
What do you find most challenging?
Balancing life with work commitments ie being a mum, a step mum and an entrepreneur.
How do you promote your business (please include as many details as you can)?
The main promotion comes from social media platforms such as Facebook and Instagram. Word of mouth is also big, especially in a little town like Mackay. Connecting with people and hosting workshops in different healing centres and venues in Mackay has helped me spread the word of the work we do at Aligning Therapies.
What business skills do you have (eg. graphic design, customer service)?
I am it! I am the business so over the years I have learned and improved my marketing, administration, accounting, secretarial, graphic designer (I design all of our posters, flyers and business cards as well as write all the content in them!), customer service, IT, healing and even cleaning skills!
What software did you/your designer use to create your website (eg. WordPress, Wix)?
What are some of your favourite business tools and apps?
WordPress, Google My Business, Instagram, Canva
What do you like about your website and what’s not working for you?
Our website is under construction. It is standard and has the basic but I am working on revamping it (this is the next phase of the business venture!) so that it truly impersonates what we do at Aligning Therapies- which is helping clients get to their core, balance their masculine and their feminine essence and improve their relationships by improving the awareness and love from within.
What lessons have you learnt during your time as an entrepreneur?
Commitment, commitment, commitment! Show up even if you think no one is watching! You never know who is following you so, do the best you can with the tools and skills you have and keep improving your present situation to become the person you want to be. Stay focused and aligned with Who You Are and with the service you offer to your clients. This business is for you but it is all about your clients!
What key tips for success in business would you like to share with others?
Commit, improve, stay focused and determined. Most of all, follow your passion and your Vision with God.
