Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in health and wellness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Anisha Gupta, Founder of Hello Nutrition, located in Mississauga, ON, Canada.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
I am a Registered Dietitian and Nutrition Coach, helping busy individuals learn how to enjoy the foods they love without restrictions or diets. I specialize in blood sugar management (Diabetes), PCOS, and weight loss/gain.
Tell us about yourself
I have been a Dietician for nine years now and felt that I really wanted to create a program that would connect the "knowing" to the "doing." Most people have some idea of what they need to change in their life but have trouble implementing it. That's the basis for my signature program, 'Surviving to Thriving.' My motivation is the change that I see in my clients! I know I am literally changing people's lives every day! Being able to be that non-judgemental guiding light, where people are disconnecting from the diet mentality and actually enjoying foods without guilt or restriction, makes me happy!
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
My biggest accomplishment is my clients and knowing that I have changed their mindset around food. My program is continually evolving to provide my clients with the best experience and support they need to achieve their goals.
What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
Time management. There are many things to do on the back end to make everything run smoothly. I have shiny object syndrome, with lots of ideas but not enough time to implement them.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- Go for it! It's never going to be perfect.
- Don't be afraid of criticism.
- Always be a student.
