WANT TO LAUNCH A WELLNESS BUSINESS? 7 TOP ENTREPRENEURS SHARE THEIR BEST TIPS

June 13, 2018

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.

We called ourselves the “trifecta,” and we started small, brewing our kombucha out of a tiny LA apartment and selling it at local farmers’ markets. The response, however, was NOT small. Immediately, and with vigor, there was a strong demand for Health-Ade. We made the best tasting and highest quality kombucha you could buy, and people couldn’t get enough. Today, we are sold in 15,000 stores nationwide, operate a major brewery in LA with 200 employees, and are the fastest growing brand in the fastest growing category of beverage.

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.

I’ve never met a kombucha I haven’t liked, but my all-time favorite, classic go-to is definitely Health-Ade’s ginger lemon flavor. It’s got that perfect effervescence and just the right amount of ginger. I’m a Goldilocks when it comes to ginger—other kombuchas either have too much and it’s overpowering or they don’t have enough.
