Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in health and wellness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Kelly Hawk, Founder of Coach Kelly Wellness, located in Hanson, MA, USA.

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

I am a certified Health Coach and Behavior Change Specialist. I help people navigate their way toward their vision of optimal health, focusing on nutrition, movement, stress management, and sleep. The client is in the driver’s seat on their journey; I merely hold the map and help them find their way to a healthier lifestyle when they feel lost.

My customers are folks who are trying to lose weight, start a fitness routine, manage stress in their life, quit smoking, sleep better or all of the above. My clients want to live healthier lifestyles but just don’t know where to start.

Tell us about yourself

I have always had a passion for fitness, which developed into learning more about sensible lifestyle changes and guiding others toward a healthier way of life. I have over 20 years of experience in fitness and nutrition coaching, and I love what I do because I truly just want everyone to feel good. I enjoy motivating people, and I get real satisfaction when they feel empowered by their own success.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

Just getting started and trying new ways of reaching people.

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

For me, it’s navigating a new landscape of how to reach people in our more virtual world. I do love being able to do my job from anywhere; however, getting your name out there is a real challenge.

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

  1. Be yourself.
  2. Try everything and figure out what works best for you.
  3. Listen to others’ advice but remember, when it comes right down to it, go with your gut.

Where can people find you and your business?
