Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in health and wellness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Dr. Bonnie Nedrow, doctor, author, and mentor, located in Guerneville, CA, USA.

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

Naturopathic Health Consultation serves women who seek a higher level of health and vitality.

Tell us about yourself

My own experience as a patient when I was pregnant led me to believe there was something missing in our healthcare system. I believed then that health was about more than the absence of disease. Thirty years later, as an aging woman, I see the need to teach people how to age well and have a higher level of wellness than they themselves often imagine.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

Serving people - I do so in multiple ways to increase my impact and help more individuals. To that end, I have written books and built programs for groups and for self-study, offering a membership in addition to the deeper support I offer with 1-on-1 care.

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

Wearing so many hats. It requires a focus on working on my business and also working in my business.

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

  1. Do what you love, not what you think will work.
  2. Time map your week to include money-generating activities balanced with infrastructure support/build-out and marketing.
  3. Start building an audience on social media and converting them into an email list, even if you are not yet set on what your business will look like.

Where can people find you and your business?
