We had the good fortune of connecting with Kiel Pollitt and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Kiel, how did you come up with the idea for your business?
My business sort of evolved over the years after working in the health industry, being a writer and contributor for online publications for both wellness and astrology. There was a natural flow to work with client’s directly on a one on one basis.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
There are certainly a lot of health coaches out in the world these days, but everyone is uniquely different and their own. I think everyone finds the right healer or practitioner they need at the right time. My business is unique that I focus a lot on cleansing, practicing to keep the body clean, I also do astrology. While I don’t always do both at the same time I do believe knowing astrology and connecting it to a client’s health can be powerful. I don’t believe any entrepreneur finds their business to be easy. It takes a lot of time, effort and patience! I definitely have had my own fair share of frustrations and setbacks but always find the best thing to do in those moments when you feel so frustrated is to step away. Coming back after a day or so can give you a new set of eyes that can help you continue to push forward.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
There have been so many books and people in my life that have had a profound impact on my career. One of the first books I got when I started my journey into the health world was called “Fresh Fruit & Vegetable juices.” By: Norman Walker. Norman Walker was a pioneer of juicing and was a raw foodist. I’m by no means a raw foodist but the book opened my eyes to the benefits of eating and juicing more raw ingredients into my diet. In college I worked for Whole Foods Market and my co workers were an amazing group of people. I learned so much about supplements and our food supply in general.. I’d like to think everyone who comes into your life can offer you some sort of lesson.
