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

Tell us about yourself

I have been a psychotherapist and teacher for over 50 years. My passion is helping people grow and mature. Therapy is one of the few places where people can be honest, real, and intimate. Once this is experienced, surface relationships are simply not enough.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

My biggest accomplishment has been to be one of the three pioneers in online counseling. Starting a trend has been exciting and rewarding.

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

One of the hardest things about being a business owner is the many hats that I have to wear. Being a psychotherapist, web designer, boss, and writer keep me very busy.

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

Look for a need that at present is unmet or that can be executed in a novel way. Look at the whole picture, and don't let yourself become bogged down with unnecessary details. Stay on top of the trends.

Where can people find you and your business?
