Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Nicole Nowparvar, a licensed psychotherapist and life coach based in Santa Monica, CA, USA.

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

I help women in their 20s and 30s navigate anxiety, depression, trauma, and grief by using therapy and life coaching.

Tell us about yourself

Since I was a teenager, I've loved creating a safe container for people to share their stories and understand themselves better. Today, I feel excited every day to wake up and help empower women who struggle with intergenerational trauma, people pleasing, and who want to develop more confidence and sovereignty over their lives.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

The most rewarding part of my work is when a client is able to have more fulfillment and happiness in their life because they are willing and able to go for their highest visions and dreams.

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

Trusting that whatever happens in the world of entrepreneurship is divinely placed for your greatest alignment no matter how big the challenge.

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

  1. Meet with a mentor biweekly whom you trust and feel connected to.
  2. Make sure you are clear on your "why" for your business.
  3. Be open to wearing all the hats at first and doing regular self-care along the way.

Where can people find you and your business?
