Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Dora Vandekamp, a business mentor based in Alameda, CA, USA.

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

I am an Intuitive Business Mentor. I help female entrepreneurs build a legacy of well-being, wealth, and impact through biohacking, energetics & strategy. I support women in building a wildly wealthy business and creating residual income streams online. My community consists of coaches, mamas, healers, and entrepreneurs who want to build residual income through a lineage-based business model that creates pathways for money to continue to flow long after their energy input has ended.

Tell us about yourself

I am originally from the Netherlands, grew up in California, and graduated from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition. My personal journey with chronic health issues and anxiety during my teens led me to discover a beautiful path to healing and abundance. I have over ten years of coaching and mentorship experience. I am passionate about helping women create a generational legacy by empowering them to connect to and express their unique gifts. I support my clients in embracing and expressing the truth of who they are so they can share their purpose with the world. I am the host of a successful podcast called the Biohack Your Beauty Podcast.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

My biggest accomplishment to date is leading an empowered community of soul-led leaders who are tapped into their abundance frequency and are living in alignment with their wildest dreams.

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

Being an entrepreneur is a constant journey of expansion and personal growth. Even though it is challenging at times, it is also the most rewarding and empowering path I can imagine. I love this work so much!

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

  1. Start now. The right time isn't some destined moment; the "right time" is created by you.
  2. Make your mission bigger than your ego.
  3. Create multiple, leveraged online income streams that build in location freedom, community, creativity, and expanded income.
