Tell us about yourself
Growing up in Poland during communism, I was struggling with a heart condition from an early age, always tired and anemic, if not in a hospital, often in bed. Like many who struggle to achieve ideal or even just stable health, I spent countless hours and dollars trying nutritional supplements in all forms — pills, powders, juices, and treatments — only to be told I must try a different treatment. I couldn't find one product, food, or supplement that would give my body all it needs: life enzymes, prebiotics, probiotics, trace minerals, vitamins, antioxidants, and other phytonutrients.
Tired of choking down handfuls of incompatible supplements, I took back the reins of my personal health by attending a holistic medicine university in Wroclaw, Poland, where I spent the next four years studying the relationship between nutrition and balanced health. Equipped with cutting-edge nutritional education and a passion for producing the optimal solution, I began developing my first honey fusion product in the kitchen of my own Los Angeles home ten years ago. I I looked to Chinese, Ayurveda, and Holistic medicine to understand the benefits each ingredient can bring.
I decided to expand the scope of my original Honey Fusion product to create three improved, nutritionally conscious formulas that deliver a more balanced, harmonious experience upon ingestion while empowering customers to take an informed approach to address their unique health needs. That is also why it was important to me that these formulas are made without compromises, combining only the purest, unprocessed, raw, and organic ingredients from the best sources packaged sustainably.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
My biggest accomplishment is the fact that I was able to sustain the business for over eight years now. Having loyal customers repurchasing our formulations without us advertising is my biggest pride.
What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
The biggest challenge is to manage finances and grow the business at the same time.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
Be clear about what you want and what is your intention behind it.
Be focused on the "how" instead of "can I."
Take your time before you make any decision; the world can wait.
