Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Acacia Lawson, Life Coach, and Artist of byAcacia, located in Glasgow, UK.

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

I am an author and a Divine Union Coach - I guide people into inner Divine Union within themselves in order to align with their true Divine Union partner to anchor in Divine Love for the New Earth.

Tell us about yourself

I started as a yoga instructor, entrepreneur, and trauma coach, helping people move through child- and adult-hood trauma in order to create the lives they truly desire to live. I had stumbled on coaching after I had healed my own trauma and wounds, integrated my shadows, and began truly loving myself (finally!).

My business transitioned into Divine Union (Hieros Gamos) coaching as time wore on (and my intuition/higher self-guided me). I love guiding people back to their own inner power, their own inner sacred union, and to their divine partner/counterpart that will grow with them on this journey of life. I use many different techniques depending on what each client needs - for example, some need help clearing abandonment or rejection, some people need to clear a past life event, and some need to re-activate their psychic gifts.

Each client has their own individual journey to live their soul mission.
I'm blessed to do the work I do, and I'm blessed to be an author as well.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

Publishing my first book based on my past life regressions - "My Past Lives and How They Came Back to Haunt Me," was one of the biggest achievements I've made. I'm currently working on my Divine Union romance novel, based on my own experience of aligning to my Divine Masculine in the physical world (not just in my heart).

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

Being an entrepreneur (online or in the physical world) is not a get-rich-quick scheme. People underestimate the amount of dedication and focus that is needed. I love being a business owner and would never be anything else than my own boss, not after 11 years of working in New York City. Although intense focus and energy are required to be an entrepreneur, it's worth it in one thousand different and unique ways.

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

  1. Focus on what you're passionate about, a soul mission or an inherent gift - and build a business around that. If you only want money, you will grow tired of that being your main goal.
  2. Find the balance - your health (mental, physical, emotional), your relationships (partners, friends, and family), and your business (career or entrepreneurship) are all connected. If you have weak boundaries in one area, they will show up in all areas of your life. Ground back into your heart and why you are doing the work you chose to do (your mission) and keep your integrity and honor.
  3. You are the creator of your reality. Only you have the power to achieve your mission. So hire a coach/mentor, take a class or get in an accelerator, etc. - do what you need to do in order to get to the next level, remove any blocks keeping you from achieving your mission, and keep you on track.

Is there anything else you'd like to share?

There is no time like the present to take a risk on yourself and your soul mission/life purpose. You came here for a reason, and only you can fulfill that mission. I believe in you. You are loved, guided, and protected. Ask for guidance, and it will be given.

Where can people find you and your business?
