Why I started a home based wellness business
Updated: Sep 18, 2019
I am Outi, 33 years old mum of two girls, a wife and a complementary therapy business owner. I have been in the industry since 2013 and I absolutely love being able to help people to feel better. However, as big part of my work is sports massage, as much as I love it, I won't be able to continue massaging until I retire, it is physically too demanding. I have to have a backup plan in place. Until recently, I didn't know what this backup plan would be, but this changed when I had my second daughter who is now 11 months old.
My baby daughter is such a gorgeous little person, but she just doesn't need much sleep. This meant that during the first few months of her life, she was waking up every 1.5 hours throughout the night and cat napping during the day. I was exhausted, in a permanent brain fog barely remembering my own name. I probably looked like something out of "Walking Dead".
That is when my family member recommended me to try a product which had helped her when she was going through something similar with his young son. Was I sceptical? Yes, massively! These products are super popular in my native country, but unknown in the UK where I live. In the end I gave in, I was ready to try ANYTHING which could even slightly help me to feel more like myself. I enjoyed my drinks twice a day (they actually tastes good!) and about 10 days later I noticed that I felt different. When I woke up after a broken night sleep, yes I did feel tired, but I easily managed to get up and start the day. I wasn't napping with my baby daughter several times a day and I had dropped the afternoon latte. I felt in general much better in myself, which my husband probably noticed the most.
I made a decision, that if these products can make me feel so much better and give me more energy, there must be something very special about them and I want to share that good feeling to those around me. And so my home business venture into the world of nutrition began.
Company I work with is 25 years old, but was launched in the UK in June 2019.
I am one of the first independent UK distributors and the demand for nutritional supplements is growing fast! A high demand and low competition business-what's not to love?
