We had the good fortune of connecting with Shamika Battle-Packer and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Shamika, what do you attribute your success to?
I’ve learned that being successful requires humbleness. My approach to business is being genuine, open and down to earth. Just Heal focuses on making everyone feel heard and feel comfortable. Being humble requires that you listen, continue learning and being open to feedback. This is what keeps us going.
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
Just Heal is not your average counseling location, it is where coaching meets counseling. We strive on helping others not deal with their situations, but “just heal” from their situations. We focus on seeing people from a mind-body-spririt perspective and helping them understand how to make that connection for themselves.
Building a business/brand is not easy, it comes with its challenges. My biggest support, is having other like minded entrepreneurs around that you can bounce ideas off of. One big lesson I’ve learned is to trust myself and my decisions. I’ve learned that no one understands your brand as much as you, so even when seeking advice or guidance, I’ve learned to trust my gut about everything!
Just Heal is here to stay and we are the change agents to help people heal.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
When a friend come in town, we will visit everything that has to do with wellness! A few of the precious gems we would visit : Yoga/Meditation classes with Freedom
Juices Wild Juice Bar with Dan
IWI Fresh for a holistic relaxing time
Massages by A Healing Touch
Shop with Soleful Healings by ToyaCee
and have lots of wind down time soaking up nature and relaxing outside by the pool with our meals prepared by personal chef, Aaron Beach
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I want to give a special “shoutout” to my mother, Karen and cousin, Jonathan who have taught me so much about working with others, being dedicated to a cause and learning to take risk.
