Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in health and wellness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Tresa Salters, Owner of Live Well Blessed, located in Kingston, MA, USA.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
I am a Christian health and fitness coach. I help women who are overwhelmed and stressed to live healthier, more joy-filled life by creating healthy habits using a healthy diet and natural solutions that come from plants!
Tell us about yourself
I am a single mom who was dealing with gut health issues and osteoporosis at age 40, the medication made me feel awful, and so I started to research and found natural solutions that come from the plants God gave us. I changed the foods I ate, eliminated toxins from all areas of my life, and created healthy habits that have me feeling better than I ever have before!
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
Helping others to live better, feel great, get off medication, and have more joy in their life is the best accomplishment! There is nothing better than having a client call me and say the doctor took me off my diabetes medication, or I lowered my thyroid levels without medication and feel so good!
What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
I love having a business, and even though there are some tough days, I look to God as the owner of my business to guide me. I think one of the hardest things is competing online, where people are exposed to so much input. Social media can be a toxic place. I try to stay positive and bring helpful tips, faith, and fun to my followers.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- Trust God every step of the way and look to Him when you are making decisions.
- Be authentic and embrace what makes you unique.
- Find a great business coach and a mastermind group of like-minded business owners to support you.
Is there anything else you'd like to share?
Creating healthy habits is simple! Start with small steps to make positive changes and find a good coach and/or community that can support you on your natural health journey. It's so much better to do it with friends to support you!
