How did you start your business?
I’ve spent years studying metaphysical sciences, human energy capacities, possibilities of human psyche and different healing modalities. The only piece that was missing in my journey to enlightment was the physical element—we never view food or the physical body as an essential part of soul development.

When I started to learn about the connection of physical health of the body with the emotional and spiritual elements, it set me to a completely new journey in my life that I would never have imagined before. I became very passionate about helping people to feel better, to think more clearly and to regain energy.

How did you come up with an idea for your business?
I found myself spending every free second I had thinking about or practicing energy healing, raw foods and just connecting with people who needed answers, support and education. I decided to do the job that I love because I believe that every human being comes to this planet with a message and a mission that would manifest in the form of their unique talent or passion.

Along the way, I earned a bachelor's degree in metaphysical sciences, a degree in health counseling from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition and an Advanced Reiki Practitioner certification. I also became a certified Healer through Four Winds Academy for Healing Arts.
What resources here did you take advantage of and how did they help?
To be honest, it pretty much came to me naturally.  The computer and books were my sources of inspiration. I would look at other people like me, who were just starting to eat raw foods or whole food sources. Often, it led them to something bigger in their life and they started holistic companies or food brands. I would look at those people and get inspired.

I also go to a lot of different events, like business groups. And I watch other practitioners and how they market themselves. If I need a massage or acupuncture, I ask myself, “How did I find this person?” 
What inspires you?
I’m inspired by simple people doing their best in their every day lives. I love to hear the success stories of those who followed their true calling despite of the doubts, fears and skeptics around, and maybe even tough times and challenges they had to go through without losing the belief in their dream.
What is the next for your company?
Creating my own food brand, opening a wellness center and a health food cafe.
