After a major back surgery and a collapsed marriage, Angela Neufeld decided to change her lifestyle, leave her business that involved physical labor, and start an online coaching business! Read our interview with the lovely Angela below…
What motivated and inspired you to start your own business?
I have been a serial entrepreneur dabbling in multiple businesses at the same time since I was 17 years old. After I had major back surgery and my marriage collapsed I closed the current businesses I had running at the time that were all physical labour businesses and felt determined to take my experiences and put them to better use that was more healthy for my body. That is when I decided to dedicate my business to helping mentor other women to be able to work from home, as I have and create a passion filled, thriving business online, as a service provider or product creator.
Tell us about your business.
These days I wake up happy and excited to support other women around the world build successful businesses online that they are totally passionate about. I also love helping them revise, grow and revamp a current business model into something more fulfilling and that aligns with their passions, if they are feeling stuck, bored, or unhappy with their current model.
Where is your business based?
I am a farm girl from British Columbia Canada, who is obsessed with chickens and business ideas, creation, and marketing!
What were the first few steps you took to get your business up and running?
The first thing I did was I researched the basic tools and resources I needed to put in place to start my service and product based business. Then I got a coach, a few actually and then took major action. I worked day and night on my business in every spare moment.
What has been the most effective way of raising awareness of your business and getting new customers?
I think the most effective way so far has been using Facebook groups and Instagram.
What have been your biggest challenges so far?
My biggest challenges are staying focused, not procrastinating and the determination to not waste any spare moments that I could be using to build my business.
How did you overcome these challenges?
Every chance I got I would listen, research, and create, taking small steps and simple bits of actionable steps daily towards creating a business where I could stay home with my children and recover.
How do you keep motivated through difficult times?
Sometimes it was very hard, I’m not going to lie. Everything seemed to cost money, and someone always needed me. I continued to focus on the BIG PICTURE and just keep plugging along, and when I felt the urge to give up, I took a few days break to refresh my mind and spirit and then hit the ground running again.
How did you distinguish yourself from your competitors?
I feel that my honestly and genuine care for supporting and helping people shines and shows through in everything I do, and I strive for being the respectful person that delivers on everything I promise, as I have personally had my own not so great experiences, and I certianly know how people don’t want to be treated. I also am told I have the “eye” for spotting what is missing in a someone’s business, where there is a lack or a need, and what the issues are right away so they can get sorted out quickly and be more profitable faster.
What is the best advice you have received recently?
Create multiple revenue streams and do not sit there in one business model that continually leaves you hunting for clients.
What advice would you give to other entrepreneurs?
Be open to letting your business evolve, and don’t get hung up on things being a certain way. If you are feeling like something is just not clicking it is for a reason. There may be something you can add, create, or take away that’s not totally fitting or aligning with you and the business. When your totally passionate about every part of your business it just flows and feels amazing. Be willing to try new things and let other things that may not be working for you go….
What is your favorite business tool or resource?
My favorite resource is definitely Canva for creating images as well as Zoom for hosting webinars.
What social media outlets do you use? List them below.
What is a good article or book you have read recently?
“Secrets of a Millionaire Mind” by T. Harv Eker.

Right now I am creating fill-in Business Journals to help you get organized, be more productive and help you map out and sort out your business projects and more! I currently have 6 courses available in the Hen House Academy on my website www.angelaneufeld.com as well as on Skillshare.
What are your goals for the next few months and how are you striving to achieve them?
My goals are to continue to take massive action and keep creating and not let my marketing efforts slide! I am planning for more webinars to help you create more, take more action, and show you how to create multiple streams of income as well!
Are you currently running any promos/contests/giveaways that you would like our readers to know about?
