Tell us about yourself
Debbie Polisky is a Bilingual Nutrition and Wellness Entrepreneur. Originally from Argentina, she has worked in both countries, Argentina and in the USA. Her daily mentor was her Dad, an Argentine well-known cardiologist and stress management expert who taught her the mind and body approach to healthcare. Her Mom loved to cook and sing and taught her to combine both sciences with creative arts to teach her community to lead a healthier lifestyle.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
Debbie loves being an Entrepreneur as she has delved into a variety of activities and services that keep her on her toes! She has received several awards in Arizona, where she lives for her contribution to minorities like the Hispanic community and her creative bilingual wellness programs.
What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?
Solopreneurs wear many hats and sometimes receive a lot of rejections or recognition while working and studying very hard. It is easy to get burnout.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- Start slow and have a steady income from another source.
- Patience and Perseverance in everything you do.
- As my Dad always said, Be your own Best Friend, and my Mom used to say, Never, Ever Give Up!
What are some of the things you put in place to maintain a healthy work/life balance?
Gratitude, Mindful Practices, Yoga and Dance - Argentine Tango for Health and Leadership.
Who are some of your favorite entrepreneurs and why?
I support local entrepreneurs as they are hard-working. I also read books weekly on entrepreneurial skills, learn new skills, subscribe to diverse magazines in marketing, business, health, and wellness, attend online webinars and learn what others are doing to improve my business.
