Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in health and wellness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Beth Dillaha, founder, and president of Blueprint4Health, located in Atlanta, GA, USA.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
I am a Certified Health Coach helping people throughout the US who have weight loss and health goals to achieve.
Tell us about yourself
I started in pharmaceutical sales out of college. I quickly became interested and passionate about the health, wellness, nutrition, and fitness industry. Having my own business and helping others motivates me each day.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
Helping over 1000 people transform their health and lives, as well as my becoming financially independent by doing what I love.
What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
One has to have a strong goal, a plan, and "stick-to-it-ness."
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- Define your WHY: why a certain business and why seeking to be self-employed.
- Have a strong business plan outlining short-term and long-term goals and activities that will achieve those goals.
- Embrace obstacles as the way to learn and grow. Don't let a setback or "failure" cause you to quit.
