Quick Q&A with Molly Pflederer
In 2 minutes, tell us how you became an entrepreneur.
I realized the freedom of creating my own schedule would allow me to continue to be present for my family when they needed me. It’s not always the easiest path, but it is rewarding.
It has also allowed me to express my own thoughts and theories through my business without the need to answer to anyone else. The possibilities are endless and you can wake up everyday and own it!
What do you do and who do you do it for?
I coach individuals on how to have a balanced healthy lifestyle. Mostly working with middle aged women who simply want to know they are doing the most they can to feel good physically as they age.
Have you found work that sets your soul on fire?
YES! When I see that I’ve encouraged someone to take control of their health, that they don’t have to be a slave to the diet roller coaster, and they find freedom in their health journey by following a new approach.
What’s the best business advice you’ve received?
Keep going and keep doing.
What has been your hardest entrepreneurial lesson learned?
That just because you have this grand idea, doesn’t always mean it’s going to work. However, those have been the moments that have provided growth that I didn’t know I needed.
What’s your scariest/wildest/most exhilarating moment in your journey so far?
Launching my first online course, Sustain. Sustain is a comprehensive self-paced 5-week program built to guide you to simple, sustainable health.
When it comes to getting work done, early riser or night owl?
Neither, lol! But I would say early riser in the sense that I start my day with quiet time and movement, which sets the tone for my day and allows me to focus on my work.
What responsibility do you like the least in running your business?
What’s the secret to your success?
Oh goodness, not sure I’ve found it yet. However I would say authenticity and following your passion. Don’t get derailed from that.
What advice would you give to entrepreneurs just getting started?
Be patient, gracious and kind to yourself. Latch on to others who have paved the way and seek guidance and advice.
