Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in health and wellness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Purnima Chaudhari, Founder of Inner Journey Reiki, located in Winnipeg, MB, Canada.

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

I am a Reiki Master Teacher and Practitioner. I teach all levels of Usui, Holy Fire III ®️, Karuna ®️, New Earth Reiki, and ICRT Animal Reiki. I also offer Reiki Healings for people, land (homes and businesses), and animals. My classes are online and can be joined by anyone from anywhere in the world. My Reiki sessions are also done remotely and available for anyone around the world. My classes are for anyone who is looking for a transformational tool for personal healing and development and also use it to complement their professional practice. Reiki sessions support your physical, mental/emotional, and spiritual health.

Tell us about yourself

My personal health crisis brought Reiki into my life. It was so supportive for me as I was healing from this crisis. It has transformed my life. Having done thousands of Reiki sessions, I see the level of healing that Reiki facilitates. I have taught hundreds of students in my classes and witnessed their transformation. Reiki has become my way of life. It is my guiding light.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

I founded a lineage of Reiki known as New Earth Reiki. I received a symbol and frequency that I added to the Reiki teachings. The symbol spread throughout the world through my classes. Now my master's students are teaching this symbol to their students. I have helped many people transform their lives through my work.

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

For me, it is balancing my time. There is a high demand for my time, and sometimes it is difficult to set boundaries, especially when it is a critical situation, and I cannot say no.

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

  1. Find your medicine. You are a unique individual with unique gifts. When you share your unique gift, there is no one else like you.
  2. A good business and marketing strategy and execution of the strategy.
  3. Do what you love and what lights you up.

Where can people find you and your business?
