Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in health supplements but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Dr. Dallas Makin, Founder of Natural Athlete Nutrition, located in Pleasant Grove, UT, USA.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
Natural Athlete Nutrition is a supplement company that specializes in making the highest-quality, all-natural, daily supplements that are at Athlete dosages.
Tell us about yourself
As a practicing sports chiropractic physician, I have worked with thousands of athletes from all walks of life, and I found that one of the most overlooked deficiencies affecting their health and performance was that these athletes were either taking only performance enhancement supplements but not the daily “keep you healthy” supplements or what daily supplements they were taking just wasn’t healthy or potent enough. The key to success on the outside starts with success on the inside, so we set out to make all-natural, high-potency, daily supplements that keep athletes healthy on the inside and performing better on the outside!
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
We’re in the business of changing lives through better health and them being able to fully live life to its fullest! Our bodies are our greatest gifts, so our greatest accomplishment happens on a daily basis, that is watching our customers feel amazing while doing the things they love!
What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?
One of the hardest things about being a business owner is there are only so many things you have full control over, and oftentimes, the things that you have no control over can have a large impact on your business. You have to learn to be flexible, creative, and intuitive.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
Don’t be afraid to get other experts involved. Look for like-minded partners that can excel at your weak points. It’s only natural to want a larger piece of the pie, but I think we’d all agree that it’s better to have a smaller piece of a really large pie than a massive piece of a tiny pie.
