Anneliese Pyatt is a Master Nutrition Therapist and founder of Wildflower Family Wellness.  Anneliese specializes in pre-natal and post-natal nutrition for women and optimal nutrition for their growing children! Learn more about Anneliese here.

Q1: What inspired you to pursue this path?
I understand how incredible it feels to be empowered in my body, and conversely how compromising it can be to feel to be uncomfortable or unsettled in my body. I was drawn to holistic nutrition because of how powerful the tools were in my own healing process. It is my mission to help people access the power contained in their bodies to create overall balance in mind, body and spirit.
Q2: What makes you unique in your field?

I specialize in pre and postnatal care for women and families. I am also passionate about helping kids, from infancy to teens, balance health and behavior through nutrition. Family wellness is something that can create peace and cohesion in people’s personal lives, and makes for stronger relationships inter and intra-personally.

Q3: How has HoloBeing/HoloWINC supported your business vision?

Through community. The community at Holobeing was palpable from the moment I walked in. I am surrounded by people who are committed to their work in a way that serves the community and honors their own true calling and spirit. It is incredibly inspirational.

Q4: What is the hardest thing about having your own business?

The hardest thing is also the thing that I love most about being a small business owner: there is no blueprint or set of guidelines for creating something that is uniquely mine. I have the freedom to make my business an entity that I am invested in with heart and soul, which I don’t think a lot of people have the privilege of experiencing. I feel incredibly grateful for the challenges that have come with being a small business owner, because they have helped me “gut check” as my dad says; meaning, they have helped me fight for what I care most about, which just deepens my passion for my work further.

Q5: What is the most rewarding part of having your own business?

There is nothing worse than going in for medical assistance and being told “there is nothing wrong with you.” While the answers to people’s health concerns aren’t always immediately apparent, the most rewarding part of my work is helping people uncover the answers to those tricky health questions. Having an explanation and being able to address the issue holistically feels like an offering that really makes a difference in people’s attitude around food and health. My job is to tailor a plan to someone’s unique experience, so they can begin to reconnect with the wisdom of their body and feel at home in their own skin.

Q6: How does community play a role in building your business?

My goal is to create the same sense of community in my practice that I feel at Holobeing. One where I can support groups of people through offerings like weekend getaway detox workshops, or discounted yoga classes. Community in my practice makes for endless possibilities of connecting and healing.

Q7: What is the best advice anyone ever gave you about your business?

Strive for completion, not perfection. There are always going to be a thousand things you can improve on, but get things set up so they work for you, they’re efficient and effective, and cut out time for the nitty gritty details later. This advice has allowed me to spend more energy on the things that are fundamental to my practice, rather than driving myself crazy with making things perfect.

Q8: What advice would you give someone else thinking about starting their own business?

Have a crystal clear understanding for your “why”. The ‘what’ and ‘how’ will fall into place, but the why will help you stay committed when things become challenging, as they inevitably will from time to time. This also helps your community create support around you and foster an energetic force field that moves a new business towards success early on.

Q9: What do you know now that you wish you knew when you first started out?

This is the client’s journey. I am simply a catalyst.

Q10: What impact do you want your work to have?

I want to give people agency around their health that perhaps they haven’t experienced before. The idea of “saving the world” which I yearned for at age 18 is still as appealing as ever; but it’s taken on a new shape. If I can start with one person, and help that person feel empowered and balanced through nutrition, they will inevitably cultivate more joy and peace in their day-to-day life and communities. This is how we save the world. Start with ourselves and give others permission to do the same.
