We had the good fortune of connecting with MIRIAM AMSELEM and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi MIRIAM, what is the most important factor behind your success?
Naturally Healthy by Miri is basically one stop for a healthy lifestyle! The most important factor behind my brand and success is an all encompassing wellness expertise which includes Holistic Nutrition, Mindfulness, Life Transitions Coaching, Yoga, Meditation, Menopause Coaching and Fitness. Having the ability to offer all of these wellness components is unique and those who want to transform their lives and make wellness their goal, don’t need to find seven or eight different experts – they can choose just one expert to cover it all! Another item on my “business menu” is also one of my favorite things which is creating Wellness “Daycations” and Retreats for women.
What should our readers know about your business?
Do you want to live YOUR best life? My passion is spreading the word about living your best life with wellness and health! What sets me apart is the ability to offer expertise in many components of wellness and helping others transform their lives. I’m proud that I’ve been able to create a community that is interested in wellness and is incorporating health into their every day lives. Organizing Wellness “Daycations” and Retreats for women is one of my most favorite things to do and has added a purpose to my life. In these retreats, I’m able to reach and help many in all aspects of wellness. These Wellness Retreats have become quite successful and I’m so proud of this accomplishment. Creating a business is challenging and it is easy and quite normal to feel doubt and even fear when starting a business. What keeps me moving forward is knowing that attitude is everything! I truly believe that every set back is a learning experience in which improvement will come forth. Some of the challenges was learning how to market my business through technology. When I started my business, marketing was limited to print and then it progressed to technology with social media etc. Instead of becoming a dinosaur, I took some workshops in social media marketing and learned how to stay relevant within the world of technology. What I would want the world to know about me is that I love connecting with people, truly care about others and wish I could help every single person lead a life filled with wellness and health.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Love this!! I live in the best part of the USA – SOUTH FLORIDA! Everyone loves visiting this area because it is fun and lively. Our first stop would be my happy place – the beach! The beaches of South Florida are gorgeous and each one has its own charm. My favorite time to hang out at the beach is either at sunrise or sunset when the sky changes colors. I love Hollywood Beach because that is where my sand tribe meets to practice yoga and meditation plus there are nice relaxing places to enjoy live music. We would go to Wynwood to see the stunning art murals and eat at one of my favorite places Zak the Baker. Our next stop would be Calle Ocho for some salsa dancing at Ball and Chain and of course, a visit to Versailles for that delicious Cuban coffee. Brickell is packed with excellent restaurants and I love the roof top bars where you can get awesome views of Miami. One of my favorite things to do is to get pampered so we would definitely spend the day at one of the top spas in South Florida such as Eau Spa in West Palm Beach which offers incredible services and has an open air garden for relaxation (they also have the best guacamole). One of my favorite outings is going out for coffee – there are some awesome coffee shops in the Las Olas area in Fort Lauderdale and Ann’s Flowers and Coffee Shop is one of my favorites as is The Alchemist in North Miami Beach. Because I absolutely love the outdoors, we would bike ride by the Rickenbacker Causeway, take a boat ride in the stunning intracoastal and visit some of the lovely parks such as Fairchild’s Tropical Gardens and Morikami Gardens.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
Every successful person’s journey is paved with support and encouragement. The person who inspired to pursue my yoga, meditation and mindfulness career is my Yoga Master, Mark Roberts – I met him over 30 years ago and his mentorship means the world to me. Sometime in the 1980’s (dating myself), I read the book Fit for Life by Harvey Diamond and that started my quest for Holistic Health and Nutrition and I earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Holistic Nutrition and Wellness 20 years ago. As far as love and support, I’m blessed with family and friends who believe in me and that includes my husband and son who always encourages me.
