Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in personal development but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Katelyn Olson, Owner and CEO of Soul Fire Ventures, LLC., located in Green Valley, AZ, USA.

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

I provide life coaching and Hypnotherapy services, as well as Reiki, EFT, NLP, and intuitive healing for stress, trauma, habit change, and for those going through transition or transformation. I help people get unstuck, find their purpose, embrace change, and pursue their passions. I am also an author, speaker, and retreat facilitator.

Tell us about yourself

I initially went to school for psychology and counseling, but life took a turn, and I went in another direction with a long career in entrepreneurship and sales & marketing. In 2013, I decided to change direction and find my passion and what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. I chose to get certified in life coaching and Hypnotherapy, adding other modalities as I progressed. It is rewarding to be able to help people when everything else has failed and see them achieving their goals and dreams.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

I think publishing my first book and accompanying journal last year was probably my biggest accomplishment. The book is called "Living in Joyful Resilience: A Roadmap for Navigating Life's Ups & Downs," and the journal is "Simple Soul Thoughts: Collecting Moments of Joy."

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

Staying focused and keeping up with this fast-changing world.

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

  1. Don't be intimidated by the task. If you have a good idea, go for it.
  2. Make a plan and take action to bring it to reality step by step.
  3. Always remember "why" you want to go into and be in business.
