Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in health and wellness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Maddie Miles, Founder of Peace Love Hormones, located in Austin, TX, USA.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
I am a menstrual & women's health business with two major touch points: my organic herbal supplements and my educational platforms (social media, podcast, ebooks, online community/forum).
Tell us about yourself
I work in women's natural health and medicine. I am a board-certified integrative health and medicine practitioner, naturopath, and clinical herbalist. I formulate organic medicinal herbal remedies for predominantly women's health, with a few that tailor to both men and women. I LOVE what I do. Health is not a fad or anything short-term but rather a lifelong journey. Regardless of economical times, we will always buy necessities. So, perhaps instead of the expensive handbag that people will be purchasing less of for the time being, they will invest in their health and well-being. With the support of my free resources like my social channels, podcast, and website blog posts + research articles, we are more than just a brand; we are a lifestyle.
I, like many women, had to unlearn A LOT when it came to my physical, spiritual, emotional, and sensual health. I was diagnosed with various diseases of the body and mind ever since I was a little girl. Towards the end of an 8-year struggle with conventional medicine, I found my relief and power through naturopathy. Ever since then, I have extensively studied naturopathy both in and out of the classroom/clinic. I do it for my own health and well-being, and I authentically share it with my community. With the Peace Love Hormones family.

What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?
Overworking/no clock in or out.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
