Conversations with Donyelle Townsend

Today we’d like to introduce you to Donyelle Townsend. 

Hi Donyelle, thanks for joining us today. We’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.

My name is Donyelle Townsend, and I am a mother of 5, a wife, and the creator of LocsOfHealing. I have practiced a holistic and spiritual lifestyle for the last 8 years, and I wanted to spread the wealth of health with the world. I would make Elderberry and other natural remedies for my family, and my close friends would come to me for these same remedies. I was encouraged to expand into the community, but I did not have the time. I was a wife, mother to 3 boys (now we’ve added twins to the mix), full-time teacher, and there were just not enough hours in the day for me to create a business and fulfill orders.

A few months after having several conversations with my husband about creating a business, and praying for time to present itself: Covid happened and the world shut down! My prayers were answered. Teaching shifted to a virtual platform and I was able to work from home. This gave me the extra time I needed to invest in starting my business. I started with one product: Sea Moss. I began to research packaging, shipment methods, working on attracting my clientele, and utilizing social media to advertise and market my Sea Moss. It immediately took off and I had over 40 orders within the first week. It was all trial and error, and I learned a lot with my first shipment. My second shipment went out 2 weeks later, and people could already see the progression (I revamped my packaging for the Sea Moss – definite game changer).

A year and a half later and LocsOfHealing has expanded significantly. We started with one product and now have 8 products in the LocsOfHealing collection. These products include: Sea Moss, Sage, Cleansing Kits, Healing Kits, Ancestral Healing Kits, Healing Diffusers, and an Energy Cleansing Spray. We also offer Tarot Readings, Reiki Energy Cleansing sessions (in person and distance healing), Spiritual Guidance, and occasional Self-Healing workshops. LocsOfHealing was created to share the wealth of health with you, as well as guide you in protecting your spirit and sacred places from energy that no longer serves you. I stand by every product and service we offer, and I am deeply humbled and appreciative for all of the love and support we have received. There is so much more in store for LocsOfHealing, and I am manifesting it all tenfold!

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall, and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?

This entire process has been a learning experience. The biggest lesson I have learned is to respect the process. I have a steady flow of income coming in weekly from my business, but some days there may not be any sales. In the beginning, it was discouraging because you want to see sales daily, but I had to shift my mindset. The days where business was slow, I would allocate time to invest in myself and elevate LocsOfHealing by participating in workshops and trainings. So instead of feeling unmotivated because I didn’t make any sales that day, I would remind myself: I may not have any orders today, but I made an investment in myself and one of the BEST investments you can ever make is an investment to better yourself and your future. I try not to dwell on the struggles, but instead, find the lesson in them. There’s always a lesson to be learned and this lesson sets us up for the future.

Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know about your work?

I am a Holistic Healer, and specialize in helping individuals reach their highest potential through energy work and natural remedies. We are continuously on a healing journey, and I am here to assist those who need someone to hold space and guide them through their journeys. I am most proud of the work I have done with my family. My children are the seeds that I have planted into the world. They are going to carry on my legacy and do the work my husband and I have instilled within them. The thing that sets me apart from others is that this isn’t just work for me…it is apart of my lifestyle. My purpose is to help heal the world, and I give 110% because I am giving from a place of abundance.

How do you think about happiness?

Doing the work with others makes me happy. There is something special about guiding someone through their trauma and seeing their transformation. It’s empowering for me to share these experiences and it is an honor when someone looks to me for guidance. My happiness thrives from fulfilling my life purpose.
