Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in health and wellness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Laura Boring, Founder, and CEO of After Nutrition LLC., located in Novi, MI, USA.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
We are a holistic nutrition practice focusing on the prevention of future medical conditions. We service anyone whose goal is to improve their health; all ages are welcome. It is really important to know about gut health and inflammation and the adverse effects that can happen to the body. There is not enough information on these subjects.
Tell us about yourself
Being in the medical field for over ten years, I realized there was a huge increase in gut health issues and depression in the community and a huge gap between nutrition and western medicine. I was diagnosed with IBS, my sister with an autoimmune disease at a young age, and my brother with colon cancer. That was the first time I decided to take action and think outside of the box and help others.
Now our focus is to teach others the importance of gut health in the prevention of anxiety, depression, and autoimmune diseases. It is extremely motivating and fulfilling to see my clients live pain-free and obtain their weight loss goals.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
I can't really name just one. We have expanded our business from one location, Novi, MI, to over 30 states in the US and five different countries in the span of one year. Holding a 93% success rate among our customers with attaining their goals.
What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
Everything. Owning a business can feel lonely at times.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
It is important to keep a cool head and have a lot of emotional stability. Learning or knowing how to time manage and accept your weaknesses and strengths is essential. Delegating and not micromanaging can definitely not only keep you sane but help you focus on what matters most.
