Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in health and wellness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Maya Angel, Founder of Angel's Nutrition and Wellness, located in West Covina, CA, USA.

What's your business, and who are your customers?

I founded Angel's Nutrition and Wellness in 2017 and became a Board Certified Holistic Health Practitioner so that I could teach people how to attain optimum health through nutrition. In 2020, I expanded my consultation services and now offer a 6 Week Online Ketogenic Nutrition Program called Halo's for Health: Plus Wings. My clientele are those who want to regain their health and vitality for life by overcoming chronic health conditions and those who desire sustainable weight loss.

Tell us about yourself

My thought process behind starting my own business stemmed from an absolute need and mission to help others overcome chronic illnesses and metabolic disorders like I had. I suffered from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, aka Myalgic Enchephalomyelitis, for 25 years. Because doctors couldn't heal me, I learned to heal myself through Ancestral Nutrition.

Thus, I knew that I must impart the knowledge I had gained to assist others in their personal fights to end disease and achieve optimum health. It just made sense to me to start my company, Angel's Nutrition and Wellness, and become Board Certified as a Holistic Health Practitioner. Starting my own business gave me the freedom to coach and help others so that they may too transform their lives. Seeing my clients overcome health conditions inspires me to stay healthy so that I may lead by example and better serve others.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

My biggest accomplishment as a Nutrition business owner has truly been seeing many of my clients overcome chronic health conditions that they once thought were life sentences after implementing the practices I teach.

What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?

The hardest thing about being a business owner, at the stage that I'm currently in, is having to do it ALL! I do everything from marketing and tech to the step-by-step processes in providing resources and support to my clients. I have a lot of faith, as my business continues to expand, that I will be able to hire a team soon so that I can solely focus on working with my clientele.

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

  1. Don't be afraid to ask for HELP because every busy owner needs guidance on how to navigate his or her steps. Hire mentors!
  2. Stay the course and be both patient and tenacious because a successful business does not happen overnight.
  3. If you are purpose-driven... Know that you can trust the process. Understand that growth is not linear. Those that can adapt to life and their business's ebbs and flows will find their way to success.
