Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in health and wellness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Haley Mannix, Founder of Well Beings Nutrition, located in San Francisco, CA, USA.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
Well Beings Nutrition is a functional nutrition practice that works one-on-one with clients looking to investigate and improve digestive issues/disorders, including constipation, SIBO, IBS, and IBD skin problems such as acne and eczema adrenal, hormonal, and sleep imbalances. Through comprehensive functional testing, lab work analysis, and both dietary and lifestyle modifications, we can better locate the root cause of these issues to find balance and build intuition around lasting health.
Tell us about yourself
After years of chronic skin and digestive issues of my own and unsatisfied with the lack of investigative curiosity of conventional healthcare, I took matters into my own hands and made more progress than ever. This led me to years of education to become the health care provider and ally that I wished I had when I needed it the most. Seeing my clients improve chronic gut issues, find clearer skin, and become more resilient motivates me every day and is the reason I can't imagine doing anything else.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
My biggest accomplishment as a business owner was being forced to go completely on my own when COVID hit and the clinic I was working at closed for the unforeseeable future. I not only survived, but my practice actually grew.
What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
One of the hardest aspects that come with having my own practice is marketing and outreach; as a practitioner that thrives working personally with individuals, it doesn't come naturally to me.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- If something isn't working, don't be afraid to change something; even drastically taking a risk can open up new ideas and opportunities.
- Invest in yourself, but wisely avoid scams that tap into your fear.
- Listen to your gut and stay true to your values.
