Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Arielle Sterling, an intuitive life coach, psychic medium, reiki master teacher, and Amazon bestselling author based in Mesa, AZ, USA.

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

My business as a Spiritual Advisor supports people looking to enhance and develop their intuitive gifts. I help clients who wish to learn methods of working with their intuitive gifts to better their lives. In addition, I practice Reiki at Macri Wellness in Gilbert, AZ, helping clients to relax, clear, and refresh their energy.

Tell us about yourself

I fell into this work after realizing that you can't run from who you are. I have always been intuitive, having many strange experiences in my childhood. I didn't really have all the right people to help me on my path, so it's become my mission to help those struggling with theirs. I work with many children and young adults like me who show early signs of intuitive abilities. It motivates me daily to know that I can help others better understand what I couldn't. This is my way of helping raise the next generation.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

One of my most significant accomplishments as a business owner is writing my first book, Shift Happens! 21 Days to Better Energy Through the Chakras. The book achieved multiple #1 spots across the Amazon charts upon its release.

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

One of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner is that there are no days off! I'm always creating and connecting with clients! As a provider of services, I try to make myself available so that clients can book according to their schedules. I love what I do, and I appreciate every opportunity my clients give me to help them out.

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

The top three tips I would give someone starting a business in my field today are consistency, clarity, and uniqueness. Don't bounce around, focus on what you do well, and grow your expertise and knowledge in that field. It may be tempting to flit onto the next hot thing, but in the long run, consistency pays off.
