This interview is part of the Chasing Dreams interview series. I’ve interviewed a variety of entrepreneurs and small business owners who have chosen a different path in life in order to go after his or her dream career. Have an entrepreneur in mind you’d like to learn more about? Let me know!

Today’s interview is with Kristl Yuen, a fellow member of the Female Entrepreneur Association. Not only does Kristl run a successful acupuncture clinic, but she also works with other business owners to reduce debt and reach their financial goals.

At what point did you know you wanted to follow this career path? How did you know this was the right direction?

What are the biggest struggles you’ve faced while trying to achieve your dreams?

Practically, the biggest struggle is that we didn’t get great business training in school, so there’s been a huge learning curve there. Emotionally, I’ve had to learn not to compare myself to others and not to worry about their opinion of me, of what I’m doing, or of how I’m running my business.
