What inspires you?
Gathering with other women in business and the energy, ideas and passion that it can bring. I also get inspired reading stories of people reaching a difficult goal or fulfilling a dream.
What does your business offer?
I offer foot and hand Reflexology Therapy which stimulates the body’s natural ability to heal itself through specific thumb and finger techniques. I also provide Indian Head Massage and Chair Massage treatments. I am looking at offering a series of Mom and Baby Reflexology workshops this fall.
What is the best thing about being your own boss?
The freedom to make my own decisions about my business, with no one else telling me what to do or how to do it.
What are some of the challenges you’ve faced?
One of the challenges I’ve faced, and still today, is educating people about Reflexology Therapy. Although it’s been around for 2500 years, it’s not a widely practiced modality and therefore required me to do A LOT of presentations over the last few years to build clientele.
Thoughts on creating a work and life balance?
Certainly as a self-employed woman, a Mom, a wife and a volunteer among other things, finding a balance between working and time for yourself and family can be a challenge. It’s really a continuous thing to be aware of. Although I may not be perfect at always creating this balance, I firmly believe that taking time for yourself whatever that may be for you, makes you so much better at all the “jobs” we have as women.
What words of wisdom do you have for other women in business?
Stay true to yourself and do what you feel is right for you, your business and your family. Trust your instincts, keep educating yourself in your field, draw upon the knowledge and ideas available to you through networking with other business women…together we are a great resource for one another in helping each of us individually achieve success.
