Behind the Scenes With the Founder of Tiny Buddha: Meet Lori Deschene

I am excited and grateful to be bringing the founder of Tiny Buddha— Lori Deschene here with you today. She created tinybuddha.com from pure passion, and a desire to serve.

From that place of giving, her blog has turned into a multi-million reader fan base, inspiring millions of people around the world.

Today Lori share’s her inspiring story and walks us through the journey.

Here we go…

Tell me in a few words what your online business is.

Tiny Buddha is an online community focused on personal development, featuring a multi-author blog, user forums, wisdom quotes, and uplifting artwork and videos. Since the site launched in 2009, it’s grown into one of the most popular inspirational sites on the web, with close to 1,000 blog contributors, nearly two million social media followers, and more than three million monthly readers.
I frequently refer to the site as a space where we’re all both students and teachers, as it’s all about supporting and learning from each other.

How many years have you been in this business?

It’s been four-and-a-half years now, though I wouldn’t have thought of the site as a business until three years ago, as that’s when I first launched an eBook and began selling ad space on the site.

Were there businesses you started before this one that helped you learn, or was this your first business and it succeeded?

Prior to starting the site, I did a lot of freelance writing work, but I’d never tried to start my own business. And I didn’t start Tiny Buddha with that intention, as I didn’t see myself as an entrepreneur or business owner and had a little bit of a block in seeing myself that way.
I started the site because it was something I needed to do for my healing and something I wanted to do to help other people who’d experienced similar things. It evolved into a business, and I’m so grateful for how the site and I have grown together.
