Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in health and wellness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Mia Taylor, owner of Mia Taylor, LLC, located in Los Angeles, CA, USA.

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

My business is Health Coaching, and my customers are those dealing with gut health issues and digestive symptoms or looking to improve their overall wellness, happiness, and fulfillment in life.

Tell us about yourself

I left an established 13-year career in Marketing after suffering from stress-induced gastrointestinal issues that spiraled and made me very, very sick. It took years of doctor's appointments before I finally decided to go my own route and heal myself. I took some time off during Covid to get certifications in Integrative Nutrition and Medicinal Plants at IIN and eCornell, respectively, and once I was healed, I decided to help others do the same. I'm extremely motivated by my own journey as well as seeing my clients' transformations daily. It's extremely fulfilling. I currently work with private clients as well as patients for an incredible Naturopathic Doctor here in Los Angeles.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

Not only have I scaled my business to offer services worldwide and to those patients seeing the Naturopathic Doctor. I've also recently published my first book, a 6-week workbook called "6 Weeks To Better Gut Health," which helps people who may not be able to afford weekly or bi-weekly sessions with me or for those who need a little extra support in between sessions. It supports my business and those who need it, which is very meaningful to me.

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

In the beginning, the hardest part was the ebb and flow of income and planning for when revenue ebbs. Eventually, it becomes stable, but there are highs and lows in the first phase, which can be challenging for people.

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

  1. Start a business doing something you're passionate about, not just something you're good at. Your clients can tell when you love what you do, making each day much more enjoyable.
  2. Push through those moments that seem insurmountable or overwhelming, and just remember that persistence is rewarded.
  3. Network with people in your industry!
