Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Jeff Boyd, Co-Founder of MTE, located in Miami, FL, USA.

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

MTE is a 2oz drink/supplement created to support peak performance and feeling good by providing calm, healthy energy from the promotion of dopamine while also providing mood support, dialed-in focus, and boosting recovery. It’s healthy, foundational support – not a quick fix. Our customer is anyone looking for a healthy boost to energy, mood, focus, and recovery. That includes young students and professionals looking to dial in, professional athletes looking for a performance edge, and baby boomers looking to support a general sense of well-being.

Tell us about yourself

Pursuing health and happiness through food and drink has been a part of my life since my first memories of my mom making us homemade pear popsicles. So when I sold my last business, I knew what was going to be next. I wanted to create a supplement that could be taken regularly to help people be well and feel good because when I feel good, I’m free to have more fun and live a great story. It’s something I aspire to daily, and it’s something I want for my friends, my family, and society at large. That idea of helping people be best and feel good is what really motivates me to tell our story and get our product in the hands of people who could really use it.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

Selling my first business and pivoting into my passion for helping others through health and wellness.

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

Maintaining balance in your overall life.

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

  1. Build a strong, scalable foundation.
  2. Work for both today and tomorrow.
  3. Have fun!
