Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Jordan River, Founder of Spirit Studios, located in Winnipeg, MB, Canada.

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

I am the creator of Spirit Science; we make animations on Youtube, facilitate community and organize events and gatherings along with courses designed around spiritual enlightenment and perceiving the unity in all things.

Tell us about yourself

I have been animating cartoons since I was 12 years old. When I was 19, I had a spiritual awakening that led me to produce the animated series Spirit Science featuring Patchman, sharing insights about the science of spirituality and the spirituality hidden within science. My team and I are motivated to see the world evolve into a higher understanding where there is less division in people's minds between belief systems and ideologies so that we may live in a more peaceful and harmonious world.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

If even one person has been made better by this work, we are very happy 🙏.

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

Running the business and structuring a team, and learning to see through BS has been the hardest aspect of things. I have always had a passion for animation, but building a team and learning how company structures work was not an easy thing for me.

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

To learn as much as you can about how businesses work, how money works, don't spend more than you make, practice saving and investing, and don't get taken advantage of. Know that you will likely fail a ton of times along the way, and each failure will be a learning opportunity for transformation and growth. Trust in the process, and never lose sight of the light of the goal.

Where can people find you and your business?
