Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in health and wellness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Josephine Djoukeng, Founder of Mindful Nutrition, located in Silver Spring, MD, USA.

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

My business is to take individuals or groups from where they are to a healthy self free of chronic diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, and others. And be mindful of their daily eating habits as a way of life.

Tell us about yourself

As a young girl, l was always in love with medicine, and later on, I realized I was more interested in the prevention of diseases than in curing them and the best way to do it through nutritional sciences. That is the reason why I got my Ph.D. in nutrition.

And family l love to help not only me and my family to stay healthy
I love to help others to stay healthy through eating healthy food.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

My biggest accomplishment is not only seeing clients follow my nutritional guidelines on healthy eating habits but to come back and telling me that they are following the guidelines and that the guidelines do work. That always touches me deeply.

What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?

There are many hardest things, and they are all related to financial support. That limits me from reaching as many people as I would love to.

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

First, to love what you do as a business person. Second, take each client as a unique person who is loved by God. Third, bring your business knowledge or skills to the level of your clients and take your clients from where they are to where they want to be.

Is there anything else you'd like to share?

I just want to share what the father of medicine said many years ago, and it is still relevant today “let thy food be thy medicine and thy medicine be thy food” hypocrites.
