Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in health and wellness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Kate Motz, Founder and Owner of Integrative Wellness Advisors, located in Springfield, NJ, USA.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
I am the Founder and Owner of Integrative Wellness Advisors. I help people uncover and address the root causes of chronic health problems so that they can create balance and harmony and reclaim health and vitality.
Tell us about yourself
I am a mother to three amazing kids and a National Board Certified Functional Medicine Coach with over 20 years of experience in the health and wellness field. I know what it’s like to have a million things on your schedule and feel depleted, overwhelmed, and confused about how to maintain balance. In my early thirties, I was over-stressed, over-tired (imagine that, a mom with three kids under the age of 5), and overweight. Throughout my training, I studied root-cause analysis for health challenges and decided to put my learned practices to work. I discovered my hormone levels were off. I had food sensitivities and micronutrient deficiencies, which were all extremely common issues!
I believe there is a root cause behind every health challenge. The hidden stressors must be identified and eliminated when overcoming health issues. This is how to properly address troubling symptoms rather than covering up or masking them.
Chronic health problems are not addressed appropriately. We are led to believe that feeling sleep deprived, exhausted, having brain fog, and having excess weight is just part of the aging process. We are told that it’s normal. That is simply not true. There is nothing normal about that statement. You can transform your health problems and feel better today than you ever have, regardless of your age.
Every human deserves a life of vitality and has the potential to be the healthiest version of themselves. Whether that means getting their weight right where they want it, getting their energy and sex drive back, and doing it naturally and safely is absolutely possible.
My goal is to help you discover and address the root causes of your health challenges. Your ultimate health transformations will be created and sustained when you address the root cause, not just the symptoms you are currently facing. My mission is to provide guidance as you create your ideal path to wellness and accountability to ensure you meet each of your health goals, so you achieve the results you desire. Let’s work together to get you healthy, then focus on well-rounded, sustainable prevention, so you can stay that way.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
My biggest accomplishments are the successes my clients have obtained.
What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
Balancing home life and work life. I am a single mother to three teenagers.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
Make sure you love what you do. Just get started. No human is perfect, and you don’t need to strive for perfection. When your business starts to grow, identify the things you enjoy doing and do those things... outsource the rest.
