We had the good fortune of connecting with Krystle Mitchell and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Krystle, we’d love to start by asking you about lessons learned. Is there a lesson you can share with us?
Patience!. For a long time, like many people my age, I would thrive from instant gratification, but running a business has reminded me obtaining the best things in life require patience. It’s easy for me to create a product and post it for the world to see and receive likes and comments via social media. However, closing a sale takes a lot of patience, since my products are made for people who are either just beginning their healing journey or have been on it for a while and want to spruce their lifestyle up.
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
The journey that led me to the person I am today is pretty wild. I would say it all began when I went to community college for journalism because I enjoy writing, and during the course I wanted a niche which then led me to the study of sex education. I became a sex blogger, interviewed people and explored many places, and found one thing that kept coming up for many people pertaining to sex which was they all suffered from some form of trauma. Whether it was abuse, heartbreak, a lack of self love and care, or physical issues and I wanted to help. Since I’ve always been spiritual, I believed the only way I was able to help these people was with the power of my words or the beauty of my eco-friendly products since many people process stuff through their senses.
It has not been an easy journey because I have to turn into myself many times and make sure I am living up to my beliefs, and solutions I believe will help others thrive and overcome their hardships.
Thanks to prayer/meditation, yoga, clean eating and my love of tea, Kombucha, and Rosé I am pretty confident in running Healing Intentions Natural, as a resourceful e-commerce store for others to come and remember to just be.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
We will definitely visit the beach, explore a hiking trail I’ve never been on. We would grab tea from Mingles Tea Bar in Inglewood. Brunch at Met her at a bar in LA, if we’re feeling sporty for a night out I’ll have us head to Berkshire House in West Hollywood. I love lounging by pools so reserving a spot at the sky bar for a lounge day, and probably catch a sunset over some drinks at Elephanté in Santa Monica.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
My customers and readers for their ultimate support. I have two books that I always reread to stay focus, one which pertains to business is The One Thing by Gary Keller and Jay Papasan, and the other book which has nothing to do with business but it’s my Bible for understanding people The Art of Seduction by Robert Greene.
My mom and husband for believing in me.
