I’m an ambitious person. Anyone who knows me will confirm that, and I make no apologies for it. I’m determined and driven, and I don’t let obstacles get in the way of getting where I want to be.
Having said that – I don’t always figure our the best way around those obstacles on my own.
In the very early stages of my career, I tried to solve the world’s problems on my own. Which worked up to a point. There came a time when I found myself asking someone more experienced than I how they would handle the situation I was in. I may not have always acted on their advice, but in some shape or form, the advice they gave me shaped my eventual course of action.
Fast forward 10 years and numerous promotions later and I now understand that what I was doing without realising it, was using a mentor.
In this interview with the wellness entrepreneur behind The Holistic Ingredient, Amy Crawford, she reflects on what it takes to thrive as a wellness entrepreneur. We talk about business models – and yes, it gets me excited – and about how Amy’s business model while it might look like a crap one, actually plays perfectly to her strengths from her corporate career. We talk about the current landscape and how she’s adapting her business to respond.
You know you’ve been wanting it! Blogging is massive in the health and wellness industry. For some entrepreneurs, it’s how they’ve started expressing their passion for wellness and then monetised or commercialised. For others, it’s become a content marketing necessity once you launched your business or website. Or maybe you don’t blog at all and you’d like to start. Or maybe you don’t blog and don’t plan to – you will still get loads from my chat with Jac about content marketing and building your tribe.
