Ask the Expert: Milena Regos, Founder of Unhustle

What is the first step to getting a corporate wellness coaching business started?

The very first thing someone needs to get clear on is their "why." Why do they want to get involved in this work in the first place? How does this align with their values and their definition of what success looks like? How would they find joy in the process so that when things get challenging, they can stay resilient? 

What are the current trends, and what type of person is a great fit to try this?

Many companies trying to adapt to this new world of work with employee engagement, remote work, burnout, and leadership skills all need to be addressed. The Great resignation is a sign that people are awakening to having more purpose and meaning in their lives. Hustle Culture will be replaced by Human Culture. The ideal person in this line of work demonstrates curiosity, has a growth mindset, and is a little rebellious.
