Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in health and wellness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Mike Woods, president of Heartstrong Nutraceuticals, located in Keller, TX, USA.

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

We are a natural supplement company that provides a patent-pending protocol and supplements scientifically shown to dissolve arterial plaques.

Tell us about yourself

I have been involved in organically sourced nutritional products for over thirty years. A personal history of cardiovascular disease led me on a quest to discover non-drug alternatives. When I completely dissolved the plaques in my coronary arteries, I knew I was on to something. When my physician adopted my protocol and had similar results, I knew I had to share this with the world. Cardiovascular disease is the number one killer on earth. After trillions of dollars spent on current therapies, the mortality has not significantly changed. Our goal is to deliver the truth to people. There are other options worth considering.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

Having clients of our protocol share test results with me shows that their arterial plaques are gone.

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

Overcoming groupthink. People are given corporate narratives that lead them to believe certain things. People need to be free thinkers and open their minds to discovery.

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

  1. Success is an uphill journey. Prepare for the drudgery of pressing forward every day. It doesn't come overnight.
  2. Understand what your values are, and stick to them.
  3. A successful business is about finding a need in the marketplace and filling that need.

Where can people find you and your business?
