GH: What inspired you to start your business/ what is your “why”?

SW: Lesbian heartbreak healing (really, heartbreak healing for all queer women who love women) chose me, not the other way around.

It’s one thing to come out of the closet after decades in it, it’s another to base your business around your sexual identity. I came out first at 38, but initially just to friends and family putting myself out there as gay on the interwebs is something it took me years to do. 

Getting married to and subsequently divorcing my now ex-wife changed my life in so many beautiful (and of course initially devastating) ways. When searching for healing during my grieving process, I recognized the dearth of resources available for queer women in the heartbreak healing space. 

Dare I say it — lesbians suffer heartbreak more often. I said it, and I have some facts to back it up:

·       lesbians are twice as likely to get a divorce than gay married men (and twice as likely to get married – see next point)

·       female biology predicts estrogen-prone humans will gravitate more quickly to nesting 

·       women are statistically more likely to be  people-pleasers, actively suppressing their true feelings in order to allegedly please their partner / others in their life


GH: What advice would you give to others looking to start/grow their business? 

SW: 1. Lead with your passion – my business is my dharma, a work of heart. 2. Make sure you have the resources (inner and outer) to keep pushing when times get tough — refer to number one. 3. Live by the 80/20 rule:

·       I know first-hand that 80% of the work will give you 20% of the results. That is when you have to KEEP GOING.

·       Life is 20% skill set and 80% mindset, so do the INNER work, every day. 

·       Make sure you set aside at least 20% of your schedule for self-care, especially meditation!


GH: How can the community support you and your business? 

SW: Spread the word – I have a big mission, to teach 28 million people to stop the downward spiral, and learn to spin within – I’ve found the most success with my queer community, but we serve all humans who want to learn to meditate and heal trauma. 


GH: What does Pride month mean to you?

SW: Pride Month is a powerful reminder of the journey towards authenticity and empowerment, especially for women and queer individuals. It represents the shedding of societal facades that we were taught as children, facades that often leave us unfulfilled and unhappy. 

For me, Pride Month emphasizes the importance of self-reliance and resilience. Through my own experiences of heartbreak and healing, I’ve learned that while we encounter various people and partners throughout our lives, the only person we can consistently rely on is ourselves. This realization, hard-earned through personal trials, has driven me to dedicate my life to guiding others towards resilience. Pride Month is a celebration of this journey towards self-acceptance and the strength to live authentically, supporting each other in our collective pursuit of fulfillment and happiness.
