Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in business development but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Janelle Lara, Founder of The Part-Time CEO®, located in Brunswick, GA, USA.

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

I am the Part-Time CEO®, which means I work two days/week and I have a multiple six-figure per year business. I am also a Light-Filled Astrologer. I help women healers create, market, and sell their Soul Offers, what they were literally designed to do in the world. I have a massive success rate for creating six-figure businesses.

Tell us about yourself

I started my business after I had my first daughter. I did not want to leave her to go to work each day. My three children motivate me to do the work I am called to do in the world. I want them to know it is possible to feel personally fulfilled and be the mother I want to be.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

A million-dollar business while being a stay-at-home mom.

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

The capacity for the risk you have to have. You have to be willing to take risks every day. There is no guarantee any launch, new marketing strategy, or offer is going to work. Entrepreneurship is a journey of one failure after another, and you have to be comfortable with that.

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

  1. Figure out what it is you are meant to do and how your energy flows for business success by looking at your astrology and human design charts.
  2. Build authentic relationships and leverage those to get beta clients willing to test your offer in exchange for a testimonial.
  3. Get your beta clients amazing results, and share those results everywhere to get higher-paying clients!
