This week's candidate is Karen Wojciechowski, founder of Real Energy Food. Karen has been working in our spaces for 3 months and shares her passion for healthy habits and how to run a business whilst travelling. She has also recently come on board as one of our latest community mentors to offer her expertise in Business Strategy, Marketing, Social Media, Habit Development, Preventing Burnout, and Building Membership.
What ideas are you exploring at the moment?
I recently launched an online membership program The Clean Living Club where members get access to new meal plans every month, live coaching calls, nutrition and health information and a super supportive facebook group and so I'm really focused on growing this club and continuing to add value to the members. I'm also taking some of my online coaching programs offline at the moment and it's been super fun to connect with clients in person too.
What do you enjoy most about the Spacecubed community?
I love meeting new people and hearing about all the exciting projects they are working on. I also love that there is always someone to brainstorm with, bounce ideas off and ask for help and also the great events and speakers. I also really like a space to get out of the house where my productivity and creativity tend to be a little better.
How did your startup journey begin?
I was an environmental scientist working for the mining industry and wanted to instead create a business that I could take on the road and travel with. I have a huge travel bug and ran my business from 11 countries in 2016. I have always had an interest in natural health and nutrition and so I went to the Institute for Integrative Nutrition to get the training I needed to be a nutrition and health coach, left my corporate job in 2014 and went to Canada to start my business there where health coaching is a lot more established as a field.
Who would you like to connect with most?
All of you! I love hearing your stories and what your working on and believe that we can all help each other :)
Can you share with us a success story you've achieved during your time at Spacecubed?
I feel like working from Spacecubed really helps me get things done so since I joined earlier this year I have launched two 30 day challenge programs that have been really successful, grown the Clean Living Club and gain a number of new in person one on one clients into my business.
What do you hope to achieve in 2017?
I hope to grow the Clean Living Club into the go to space for health conscious people wanted some accountability, new meal ideas and a like-minded community to take their health to the next level. I also hope to fill my one-on-one coaching spots and am soon running some health cooking classes at City Farm which I am looking forward to.
