Hello! I am Vikki Robinson. I am married and have 2 wonderful kids. Prior to becoming a business owner, I worked in the medical field as a Registered Medical Technologist for 15 years. I was growing tired of what I was doing and was not filling any fulfillment in what I was doing professionally. I was looking for a job that was going to make me happy, be a little challenging, and most importantly fulfill my passion to help others.
After going through some personal health issues in 2020, I decided that I was ready to change my trajectory on my career path and start up my own business (Upscale Wellness Minds). I did not know what I wanted to do until I came across health coaching. So in 2021 I became a certified Holistic Health Coach. As a Holistic Health Coach, I look at the whole picture to help my clients with issues, such as diet, eating habits, exercise, time management, anxiety, and stress.
Once I started with Health Coaching, I kept feeling like something was still missing. I felt like I needed to offer my clients something extra to go with health coaching. In 2022 I had an “aha” moment. I finally figured out what was missing and what I could offer. So, I enrolled in a course to become a Certified Pilates Mat Instructor.
Not only do I have a love for people, but I also have a love for travel. I have always wanted to be a travel agent but did not know where to start nor did I like the pay at the time. In late 2022, I came across the perfect company that helped me to make my dream come to become a travel agent. I love this company not just because of the perks (I definitely love them), but also I can grow my company by building up my team. I love helping my clients with their dream vacations. I feel that your vacation is an investment, and I am there to protect every penny of that investment. I take pride in providing a personalize service with a personalized touch.
I have two businesses- Upscale Wellness Minds (Health Coaching/Pilates) and TourDGlobe Travels (Travel Agency). I am based out of Jackson, MS and I work with clients around the United States. It’s funny how I named my travel business. I came up with the name TourDGlobe Travels based on a book by Dr. Seuss “Oh, The Place You’ll Go”. I want my clients to travel and experience the entire world, one place at a time. I recently decided to combine both of my businesses together. Travel is an important part of your mental health. It is not just about going on a vacation, but to go and find yourself and what is in you.
I am not stopping here with these 3 businesses. I have some more ideas that I will be implementing in the next few years. I do not take credit for any of this. I owe it all to God. I have been blessed beyond my wildest dreams and the best is still yet to come. I am thankful for a supportive husband. He has been my backbone through this entire journey. I recently quit my job (my comfort zone) and decided to pursue my business full-time. I made that big, giant step and haven’t looked back since. I truly can say that I have found my passions (helping others and travel) and I am looking forward to what the future holds.
My advice to anyone reading this would be..look inside yourself and figure out who you are or what you want to change. If you keep thinking about starting a business, go for it! If you are thinking about applying for a higher paying position, do it! Whatever your dream is…go for it! The sky is the limit! You only have one life to live….live it to the fullest!!! It all starts in the mind. A negative mindset will never give you a positive life. Believe in yourself! Step out of your comfort zone! YOU got THIS…I believe in YOU!!!
Last, I would like to take this moment to thank Business d’Or for this opportunity. I am truly honored that you reached out to me and blessed me with this opportunity to showcase my business. I look forward to networking with others and establishing new friendships along the way.
Thank you and God Bless!!!
