What a lovely chat with Elena. She has a really interesting career story. She has a background in clinical psychology. and then admits she had a life crisis and moved into being a musician!
She missed science and wanted to move into something that was slightly less unpredictable in terms of income as being a musician.
She was always interested in health and wellbeing and followed that passion and started her training in nutritional therapy after another midlife crisis! She has always been self employed and is super passionate about being in business, woking for herself and having the courage to follow her passions.
I asked her all about her thoughts on MPWR Business Club, she said:
“I love the inspiration. There are so many different people from so many different areas. The more you hear from people, the more impressed and flabbergasted you become.
And the hive mind. Whatever you ask you will get some answers and very many ideas and they are usually very constructive and interesting.
That whole sort of variety of knowledge expertise and kindness and helpfulness and just a bunch of extremely interesting people. And of course we are all business owners and small businesses and it gives that sense of connection that I am not on my own trying to keep my head above water.”
So if anyone is still on the fence about joining us she said:
“Absolutely worth it. I just love being there. You don’t have to be master businesswomen. You will just be accepted, just come as you are. It’s so worth it. It is very highly professional but also really really accepting.”
