Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in health and wellness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Jana Tuhman, co-founder of Bloomth, located in Toronto, ON, Canada.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
Bloomth is a female health clinic in Toronto that has been helping women for over five years with no plans of stopping anytime soon. Bloomth is a unique self-care app that creates your personalized meal and wellness plans based on your monthly cycle. We can help with sleep, fatigue, headaches, and more.
Women's physiology is uniquely different from men's, which heavily depends on our monthly cycle. Yet despite this fundamental difference, the industry still treats women like smaller versions of men. That is wrong. Most of the treatment we receive is just more pills or surgeries - an ineffective approach. From our real-life clinic experience, we know that our first line of defense is a whole-body approach to health. After seeing and helping hundreds of women, we understand how it feels to know that the primary healthcare system is failing us. We've achieved extraordinary results in our clinic, helping women live more joyful lives, and now have decided to bring our knowledge to many more women worldwide.
Tell us about yourself
Bloomth is a super happy team of two gals! I'm a loving mom and our chief scientist. I have more than 20 years of experience in scientific medical research, including at the Hospital for SickKids in Toronto. I hold two Master of Science degrees in Biophysics and Biochemistry from the University of Toronto.
Olea is a happy mother of three and our chief marketer. She has more than 20 years of experience in consumer marketing and design. When we met, we already knew that something incredible awaited us! We could see how our knowledge completes each other.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
When our application was almost ready, and we were about to launch, COVID happened, and it got us off course at first. But we always try to see a possibility in every hardship. We took this time to do more testing and tuning, and now we are absolutely proud of our app and our users!
What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
Being moms and running a business requires many balancing techniques that we are still learning! But seeing our app's impact on our users' health and wellness makes this all worthwhile.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- Never stop learning!
- Sometimes you need to "stop and smell the roses"!
- Don't be afraid to ask for help if you need it!
Is there anything else you'd like to share?
Sometimes you may feel tired and overwhelmed, and it's totally ok! It does not mean that you do something wrong. It means just one thing - you need rest! Never forget about yourself! When you are exhausted, you can not help and support people around you. And that's actually where Bloomth App can help! We wish every entrepreneur an enormous success in their business path and an everyday life filled with smiles, warmth, and support from their loved ones!
