There’s no way around it: Taking the leap of faith required to launch your own business is always scary and risky. It’s one thing to hash out your plan over wine with your friends, it’s a whole other one to convince your partner it’s worth quitting your job and putting your savings on the line for.
But if your big idea is related to wellness, now could be the ideal time to see it through. In 2016, the health and wellness industry was valued at $686 billion worldwide, and it’s expected to grow to reach $815 billion by 2021, according to Euromonitor International. This growth in the wellness market is part of what brought over 100 budding entrepreneurs to FounderMade’s Consumer Discover Show in New York City earlier this week.
Throughout the day, panel discussions were held featuring the founders and CEOs of notable brands including Health-Ade kombucha, C.O. Bigelow, CAP Beauty, Y7, Man Repeller, Equinox, FreshDirect, CVS Health, and Barry’s Bootcamp. Want the Cliffnotes version of the best advice of the convention? Rounded up here are the seven most useful tips that were revealed during the day.

I've become quite evangelical about kombucha. It may seem extreme, but I have one a day, sometimes more. It's not a low-calorie or diet food, but I've incorporated it into my life because it works so well for me. There are many ways to get probiotics into your diet (I've also recently become obsessed with yogurt, Noosa brand mostly, because yogurt tends to be high in probiotics), but kombucha has saved my life. I usually drink it in the morning, and it makes me feel a million times better. (Side note: it's also great when you're hungover!)
I don't discriminate, but my favorite brand is Health-Ade. Sometimes I opt for GT's. Health-Ade has a spicy cayenne flavor that I cannot get enough of and a grape flavor that I find heavenly. I have come to be completely obsessed with not just the positive effects on my bloat, but also the taste.
