Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in health and wellness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Charissa Colacioppo, Founder of Holistic Touch By Charissa, located in Ventura, CA, USA.

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

I help people relax from stress, anxiety, and depression through Reiki, Massage, and Hypnosis.

Tell us about yourself

I’m good at calming people, and I enjoy the feeling that comes with knowing I can calm someone and make them feel more centered within themselves. Noticing this about myself is what inspired me to start my business and get trained in all my healing modalities. The training helped me do what I do naturally even better.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

One of my biggest accomplishments was helping a man recognize a childhood trauma, understand it, and through that understanding, heal and let go of the negativity attached to it, all in one session.

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

The hardest thing is dealing with money gaps when clients are too busy to come.

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

Love what you do, grow a savings account, so you have something to fall back on when there are money gaps, meditate regularly to remember your core values and goals, and feel the peace that comes with remembering.

Where can people find you and your business?
