Who is Linda Ljucovic, could you please introduce yourself?

I am an Organizational Development Consultant, Holistic Nutritionist, Functional Diagnostic Nutritionist, Yoga Teacher, and Co-Owner (with my husband) of Balance Point Health.  Through my own health challenges, I learned that the mainstream medical model doesn’t always provide all the answers.  Through persistence and a drive to find the root cause, I learned that healing is possible when one gets proactive and then takes a mind, body, and spirit approach.  I found that leading with nature and plants can be a great place to start because once people feel better (they work on an emotional level too), they have the energy to take on harder changes like diet and lifestyle habits that lead to lasting change.  I am the author of a book called ‘Stress Less About PMS” and I’m passionate about helping women balance their hormones.  I currently use functional labs to get answers early and my goal is to be the last health coach you ever see.  I educate women and men on how to incorporate healthier habits into their lives and how to lead a more natural and toxin free lifestyle over in Instagram @lindaljucovic.  I am a mom to 2 boys and a dog Lucy, and in my spare time I can be found hiking with my family, feeding my hungry boys, or organizing events that bring people together.

What is your business and when did you start?

I help people get answers to their health challenges using functional labs and  a holistic approach incorporating lifestyle changes, diet, and supplements. My nutrition business officially started in 2008 and has been growing slowly while working a full time job and raising a family.

What inspired you to start your business?

My own health challenges and my drive to find answers sent me down a path of healing.  Through this healing, I learned how taking a mind, body and spirit approach to health is important for lasting results.  I turned my mess into my. message!

What were the challenges in the initial stages of your business and how did you overcome them?

My initial challenges were about how to find clients who were willing to invest in their health.  Also, picking a niche was though because I wanted to help everyone.  Balancing my day job and my passion was also difficult. I kept learning, taking courses, teaching and grew through experience.

What motivates you about your business?

Helping people.

What advice would you give to other entrepreneurs?

My advice would be to keep your day job while you grow your business to reduce the pressure and to find a good network who understand what it’s like to be an entrepreneur.

Interesting fact most of the people do not know about you?

I was in the Navy Reserves where I drove a tank, fought fires on ships and went to the shooting ranges as part of my training.

The best business advice I ever received was…

Work on your mindset first.

My definition of success is…

Do what you do best and give it to the world.

If I could go back in time when I started my business, I would tell myself to…

Be patient and keep looking for answers.

The book I recommend for entrepreneurs is…
