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

My business helps people learn to manage their health simply. It guides them through genetics and develops meal and supplement plans based on their needs. We focus on detoxification and weight loss based on genetics as well. We serve individuals aged 35-65 who want to regain their optimal health and vitality.

Tell us about yourself

I got into this because of an experience I had. I was a mom of twins. Eating healthy. Exercising. I had severe low back pain, and all anyone saw was a medication to give. They didn’t see me as a human.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

Helping over 2500 people reverse chronic diseases.

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

Separate time and family time are the hardest. You have to take breaks for yourself.

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

  1. Don’t leverage yourself. Keep it simple.
  2. Make sure you are passionate about it.
  3. Build a supportive team that can lift you up, reality-check you and pull you along.
