Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in mental wellness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Shaina Feingold, owner of Mindful Reflections, LLC., located in Boca Raton, FL, USA.

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

Mindful Reflections is a psychotherapy practice specializing in perinatal mental health. Mindful Reflections' mission is to help women and birthing people in all areas that relate to pregnancy and motherhood because so much is unexpected.

Tell us about yourself

I started specializing in perinatal mental health because, similar to many of my clients, I struggled with fertility, had a traumatic pregnancy, and had to navigate postpartum mood challenges. I was able to work through so much of the unexpected that plagued my motherhood story with my own therapy and supportive connections, which I wanted to provide for other people. I am motivated to continue doing what I'm doing when another person finds healing and can live a life they love.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

My biggest accomplishment as a business owner is being able to continue the work I'm doing, helping my clients find deep and meaningful change, even during these tumultuous times.

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

I strive to provide quality therapy services, which is why for me, one of the hardest parts about being a business owner is balancing the everyday tasks, including marketing and making sure that I stay up to date with the best therapy methods to enhance my clients' healing.

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

  1. Be patient. Things don't happen immediately.
  2. Be willing to make mistakes and to fail. Success does not always have right away and often comes after many failed attempts.
  3. It's okay to hire outside help to handle the parts of the business that you don't excel at, i.e., social media marketing, writing, website design, etc.

Where can people find you and your business?
