Tell us about yourself
I have been into fitness and healthcare for many years. I realized that our sedentary lifestyle in western society is one of the biggest threats to public health. So I created a company aiming to improve the quality of life of individuals by being more active and pain-free. As I gained more knowledge, it became clear that you need to add a good diet to really maximize the benefits of a conscious and active lifestyle. Adding bone broth to your everyday diet is a big key component to achieving that goal.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
I guess that seeing the vision I had in my head form in real life is the biggest reward. Of course, this vision can not live if the customers don't come back, which shows that there are customers who need and enjoy our products.
What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
To prepare for the unexpected, there are so many things that don't go as planned - even though you tried to think of everything. To not let those events discourage you from pushing.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- Do an extensive market analysis.
- Surround yourself with great people.
- Don't give up.
