Tell us about yourself

I am a long-term meditator and yogi and have been practicing psychiatry for more than a decade. Since becoming a psychiatrist, I have gone through training to teach mindfulness and yoga. Last year I wrote the book Practicing Stillness, an introductory guide to meditation, yoga, and other stillness practices.

In 2022 I became a life coach and fell in love with coaching. I am passionate about helping others to live their best life.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

My biggest accomplishment is helping people to improve their physical, emotional, and spiritual health.

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

For me, marketing has been my biggest challenge.

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

  1. Just get started. Done is better than perfect. Take one small step at a time.
  2. Surround yourself with people who build you up. Find a community that will support you.
  3. Pump yourself up! You've got this.
