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

Tell us about yourself
I have run this company for over 12 years because I have been a women's health clinician and coach for over 20 years. I see how much work there is still to be done to provide women all over the world with high-quality healthcare. And, I believe that healthcare should be offered with a whole woman perspective, not just symptom management strategies.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
Reaching health and wellness professionals in over 60 countries with our educational programs.
What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
Managing growth and delegating the workload. We have a great team, and there is a balance between delegation, management, and financial management that is a tightrope to walk regularly.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- Make sure you have an advisor who will challenge you to think about the risks involved with your business expansion.
- It's just as important to have people on the team who share your vision and are creative about navigating obstacles.
- Aim to be profitable from the beginning so that you are building something sustainable.
