Sometimes the driving factors of success are born from passion but other times, it’s pure necessity. MaryRuth Ghiyam, founder of MaryRuth Organics, explains how her determination to overcome overwhelming debt drove her to become an entrepreneur, creating a successful company and achieving the ultimate financial independence.
Although she had been lucky enough to have been offered financial support from those in her life, MaryRuth rejected those generous offers in lieu of becoming the master of her own destiny and being in total control of her financial future. Ghiyam explains how she had to change her thinking to change her outcome and what it took to leave her debt in the rear view mirror.
Meet our guest:
MaryRuth Ghiyam is a certified health educator, nutritional consultant, and culinary chef.
After the premature passing of her brother and father, and her mother’s diagnosis of two benign brain tumors, she traveled the country to learn about the body’s path to heal itself. That journey led her to create wholesome supplements for her family, friends, and clients, ultimately founding her wellness brand in 2014, MaryRuth’s.
The team at MaryRuth’s is made up of over 100 incredible teammates and the brand offers over 130 products to help live a healthier life! MaryRuth is also the author of the Wall Street Journal best-seller Liquids till Lunch. She lives in sunny Los Angeles with her husband, David, and four children…Ethan, Elliot, Jacob and Grace.
MaryRuth’s is a rapidly scaling health and wellness brand offering over 130 high-quality, vegan, non-GMO vitamins and supplements to benefit all ages, from infants to adults. Her eponymous brand was founded in 2014 after MaryRuth was working as a health coach and struggling to find supplements to recommend to her clients that were easy-to-take and didn’t make them nauseous on an empty stomach. She made a small batch of a sugar-free Raspberry Liquid Morning Multivitamin and the rest is history. MaryRuth went from $700,000 in debt to creating a $100+ million wellness company – before taking on any investors – and is on a bold mission to show how micro-actions, even as simple as taking a daily multivitamin, can give you the momentum to move forward every day. In fact, micro actions, “the compound effect,” and time blocking were the keys to macro change for this wellness entrepreneur. MaryRuth focused on creating the most delicious products and having the most outstanding customer service, and it was these core values that enabled the brand to skyrocket.
MaryRuth’s, an Instagram-favorite brand with over 400,000 followers and over 325,000 five-star reviews, is committed to developing wellness products which can radically improve customers’ lives. The brand is available online via its own website and Amazon.com as well as in retail, including in Whole Foods Markets, Meijer and Target stores.
