Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Dorinda Barker, CEO of NXTConnection, located in Los Angeles, CA, USA.

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

I am a relationship coach and online dating expert. I love seeing people succeed in every part of their life, and I'm great at LOVE; I can help you create a winning dating profile, get back into dating after a dry spell, or even clear out that inner chatter that stops you from actually deepening into meaningful relationships with the right potential partners.

Tell us about yourself

I started my business to help people who were on dating sites be more authentic and desirable.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

I would say when people tell me I helped them find their person and that they are getting married.

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

Attracting clients.

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

  1. Learn from your peers in the same field.
  2. Don't make it a competition.
  3. The key to winning is staying.

Is there anything else you'd like to share?

Never give up; there are people who need your coaching.

Where can people find you and your business?
