Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in personal development but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Derek Jameson, Founder of Derek Jameson Coaching, located in Los Angeles, CA, USA.

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

My mind, body, and spiritual life coaching business is aimed at helping people reclaim their power and evolve toward greater joy and success. I assist the awakening soul on their inner path of self-discovery and learn how to navigate the fear of the unknown. Coaching can include health and fitness, past life regression therapy, and spiritual channeling.

Tell us about yourself

My calling has always been to help people in any capacity. As a teenager, I was connected to the spiritual world. This connection would eventually guide me to help so many others understand themselves and their spirit.

With a connection to my inner being, I gained clarity, focus, and drive toward my goals. Discovering that it was within me shows me that all others have it within them. It is my mission to help awaken that power in all others.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

I have been blessed to work with business owners, leaders, teachers, celebrities, and so many more to reclaim their power so they can share it with all others. Knowing that my work has a ripple effect on so many people is a true accomplishment.

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

As a business owner, you figure out the way that works. What doesn't? What supports your values and beliefs? What needs to be in alignment with who you are? It's all a process of evolution. Learning to make it through the hard times is all a part of the process. As a leader, one always finds the opportunity within the challenge. That's what makes us stronger.

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

  1. Stay yourself authentically. We only find issues when we don't listen to and honor our inner being. Trust yourself.
  2. Follow your heart because knowing that you followed your heart is what you take with you to the end. Keep your heart focused on what you are creating. That focus will increase its power.
  3. Build a healthy relationship with money. Your loving relationship with the energy of money will create harmony and success in growing your business.
