Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in personal development but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Tamara Bell, Founder of Empower Life Works, located in North Pole, AK, USA.

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

I am a Life Balance coach who helps women by guiding and educating them to manage their symptoms of anxiety, stress, and depression through Holistic Nutrition, Wellness Coaching, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I love empowering others to truly become the best version of themselves. I empower them to not just survive through life but THRIVE.

Tell us about yourself

I became a life coach long ago, but at the time, it was not in a professional setting. During COVID, however, I went fully professional and started seeking paying clients. I love watching the light go on in my clients' eyes when they get it; they can see their path, they can see the direction they want their life to move in, and they start acting on it. Many times we get lost and forget what is important to us, so I step in to shine a mirror back on them so that they can recover what was important to them.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

Going professional, setting up my site and my booking engine, and finally meeting professionally with paying clients.

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

Typically finding the exact client that is a good fit.

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

Don't give up! Take creative breaks now and then to get those creative juices flowing. Don't always just focus on the "work" side. Engage in your own passion products; your happiness and well-being will shine through to your potential clients.

Is there anything else you'd like to share?

It's incredibly rewarding to work to empower others to be their very best!

Where can people find you and your business?
