Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in health and wellness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Anna Gonwa Ramonda, founder of Functional Nutrition with Anna LLC., located in San Jose, CA, USA.

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

FNA is a functional nutrition business. I use lifestyle and diet changes to address the root cause of my client's symptoms. My clients are often stressed out, anxious people who also suffer from digestion issues. These two issues often go hand in hand, so when we address one symptom, the other tends to resolve as well!

Tell us about yourself

I was first inspired to get into this field when I saw how helpful making diet changes was for my best friend's health problems. In addition, I had always suffered from severe anxiety disorders and IBS and saw a great improvement in both when I made diet and lifestyle changes. I had a client whose symptoms resolved within TWO appointments. It was so rewarding to help them make the necessary changes to feel better.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

My biggest accomplishment as a business owner has been proving to myself that I actually CAN do this. The imposter syndrome has faded
I feel confident in my skills and the value I bring to this field.

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

Setting boundaries has been a process of trial and error!

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

  1. Set boundaries for everything and stick to them.
  2. Believe in yourself!
  3. Running a business can be a lot, so make sure you take time for yourself.
