Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in health and wellness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Kaely McDevitt, Founder of KaelyRD, located in Jonestown, TX, USA.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
We are a virtual private practice specializing in nutrition for women's health. We help women who feel stuck on their health journey resolve hormone symptoms through personalized nutrition.
Tell us about yourself
When I was in school to become a dietitian, I was dealing with significant hormone symptoms myself. Despite the fact that I had considerable years of schooling in the health field, I didn't have a great understanding of female physiology. I spent my free time outside of work and school diving into the research on all things women's health. What started out of necessity on my own health journey developed into a passion for providing this education to the masses. The information that we currently share and use with clients was the information that helped me find my way back to myself. I am absolutely lit up by helping women understand their bodies and take back the driver's seat over their health and wellbeing.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
Recently we put on our first in-person health event for over 100 women. This was a dream that had been in the works for a long time, and so much was poured into it. Seeing it come to life and getting to bring our online community together in person was one of the most profoundly impactful moments of my life, and I'm incredibly proud of what we created.
What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
Owning a business means you have to wear many hats - and sometimes, some of the hats you have to wear are things you don't like to do.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- Just start - don't wait until you have the perfect website or the shiniest offer - take imperfect action and continue to make improvements as you go. You will never feel fully "ready," and that's ok!
- Be a life-long learner. The learning is never done. Each year in business, we end up going through things we never thought we would, and staying flexible and willing to learn is essential.
- Be you. The world doesn't need more people trying to imitate people or businesses that already exist. As much as you can show up authentically as yourself in your business and let your uniqueness shine through, the faster you'll call in your people.
