What's your business, and who are your customers?
I'm a certified holistic nutritionist offering personalized consultation as well as my 21-Day Body Boost™ detox live group program. I help individuals who feel persistent bloat and fatigue by showing them how to eat for health so they can have energy, body confidence, and love life.
Tell us about yourself
After spending 20 years working in Finance & Accounting at various Bay Area biotechnology companies, I've been pursuing my passion for health and wellness. While raising 3 children and navigating through the daily stresses and challenges of life, including experiencing personal health issues and digestive issues with my children, I turned to a holistic approach that encompasses physical and mental health for well-being. I find great fulfillment in working and educating others as they work through finding their own balance of personal health and wellness for themselves and their families.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
My biggest accomplishment has been creating a profitable wellness program that has educated and supported many people to feel their best.
What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?
The most challenging area for me has been marketing myself and my 21-Day Body Boost™ program to reach new clients. Although I feel proud my business is primarily based on referrals, I know I need to find a way to get higher visibility for my program to help more people.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- Find your passion as you'll be living and breathing it as a business owner.
- Determine your niche in the marketplace and be the best at it.
- Start simple and bring in others that complement you.
