The Tricky Art of Being a Wellness Entrepreneur
Four successful women discuss how they determine what tasks to delegate and how they stay motivated
As consumers seek to improve their bodies, minds and spirits, more entrepreneurs are starting so-called wellness companies to meet this demand.
The market is becoming increasingly crowded as companies crop up to meet consumers’ appetite for home goods, food, beauty and countless other products that aim to enhance buyers’ well being.
To have a profitable business in this competitive space, founders need to stay motivated throughout the difficulties of entrepreneurship and have a sense of passion and purpose, says Melisse Gelula, co-founder of Well + Good.
In addition, they can rise above the skepticism the industry sometimes faces by providing products that actually enhance people’s lives.
“There’s a lot of money looking to wellness, but I think when that kind of thing happens you get people who aren’t necessarily trying to solve a real problem,” Ms. Gelula says.
In this special Secrets of Wealthy Women podcast with host Veronica Dagher, a panel of wellness founders discuss how entrepreneurs can figure out what tasks to delegate.
The panel, which also includes Rebecca Parekh, chief executive of THE WELL, Jennifer Walsh, founder of Walk with Walsh, and Marygrace Sexton, founder of Natalie’s Orchid Island Juice Co., also share their financial tips.
