Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in mental wellness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Elise Micheals, Executive and Public Facing 1.1 Coach, located in Miami Beach, FL, USA.

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

I'm a men's mental health coach. I help men find purpose and passion again by healing subconscious trauma.

Tell us about yourself

I started my business just before the pandemic. I struggled with extreme periods of sadness and depression throughout my life and vowed that if I could figure out how to help myself, I wanted to help others and save time. Once I started studying neuroscience, trauma therapy, relationship science, etc., I discovered there IS a step-by-step process you can actually use to heal your trauma and feel in control again. What motivates me is the idea that by helping men heal themselves, the future generation of children won't have to suffer needlessly.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

3xing my income and social media reach year after year.

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

Learning how to fill in the gaps where you're the weakest and become strong in those areas.

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

  1. Find what you're passionate about that makes you money.
  2. Make money before marketing anything, building a website, making a logo...prove your concept.
  3. Collaborate with others.

Is there anything else you'd like to share?

Time is the only asset we have that we will never get back. Do not put off your own healing. Make yourself a priority.

Where can people find you and your business?
