17 YEARS Celebrating seventeen (yes, 17) years of my business Food Health Wealth today! Hard to believe that a business built on an Om and a prayer could blitz through the glass ceiling of the typical 2-5 year survival rate. There have been so many moments of exhilaration, ultimate freedom, disappointment, joy, fear, survival, and an overwhelming sense of if it doesn't work, what then?
However, there's never been an option, success is the only way forward. If you're a part of the early days of FHW in gritty Collingwood attending a Don't Panic It's Organic cooking class, or a hilarious Pilates (Pilarftes) & yoga class - with Sly the 3 legged dog in the studio - then this is dedicated with so much gratitude for your custom and belief. There were times when I couldn't buy Christmas presents, dinners out or have a holiday purely for pleasure. It's been a bloody long road, a hard slog and don't ever, ever be fooled that success is an overnight delivery. The last nine years have been spent living here in Byron Bay paradise and creating delicious friendships with local businesses including @foamlennox @thebyronatbyron and @_brookfarm_ and helping new ones like @wearecombi find their tropical feet. Be authentic. Be original. Be true to your vision.
My wellness journey all started with @endeavourcollege - a body of study that changed my life that I am truly grateful for. Poignantly, the new Endeavour Wellspring magazine has just dropped and you can read a few of my favourite finds in my new home hood here http://wp.me/P4isNS-GC #wellness #byronbay #mentor #master #nutrition #nutritionist #byronbaycookingschool #endeavourcollege #followyourheart ❤#foodtrends #entrepreneur #spafood #healthretreat #guru #yoga #gamechanger
