Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in health and wellness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Brooks Branch, Owner of Sleep Club, located in Beverly Hills, CA, USA.

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

We're what we call "the townhall of sleep." And our customers are everyone, arguably, because sleep and overall wellness are things that we all have in common.

Tell us about yourself

What started me in Sleep Club was less about the business of sleep and more about a passion for life in general and that the healthier our sleep life is, the healthier our awake life can be. And I'm motivated by offering whatever we can to support others with similar passions.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

That's a hard question to answer, but bringing a natural, holistic sleep aid to market in our Sleep Stripzzz is very cool. We sort of cracked a secret code with these because of the science behind how they work. You just place one on your tongue, and as they melt away, all these naturally sleep-inducing minerals and vitamins get into your system to help you sleep easier and even make you feel good when you wake up. They've got a nice minty taste, too.

Also, it was sure fun to do a live launch from New York with a bed-in with Ringo Starr, Yoko Ono, and Jeff Bridges.

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

Everything that keeps me from sleeping.

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

  1. Have a vision.
  2. Surround yourself with people smarter than you.
  3. Get a good night's sleep.

Is there anything else you'd like to share?

I think to myself that as crazy as the world is now, how can we use sleep to help us all be our better selves? I extend an invitation to anyone who has a unique relationship with sleep, dreams, and being awake to come to play with us.
