Making Health and Wellness A Priority as an Entrepreneur

Entrepreneurship is not just about business. It's about a way of being and a way of living. There is a connection between living a happy, healthy life and our ability to be ambitious, efficient and thriving entrepreneurs.

Now everyone knows that I am so passionate about creating and living a wholly healthy life, and I always encourage my fellow bizmums to do the same.

You are only as good as your health!

So with today's episode, I've got a real treat for you that will help you be more productive in your days by living a low-tox life.


Today's guest is Cara Little. Cara is a registered Pharmacist and has been in the health and wellness industry for over 10 years. She developed the lifestyle brand Pure Home Body – a pharmacist formulated, plant based and healthier line of home and body care for the whole family.

In between wrangling her two children, Cara remains focused on cutting through the ‘BS’ in the health and wellness industry, delivering a key message that health starts in the home, should be guilt free, fun, achievable and suited to your family’s need. Her vision is to inspire and educate families to make better choices about products used in their home, and where possible to steer towards a more natural approach.


During this episode, Cara is going to share how entrepreneurship and wellness connect and the importance of making our homes a sanctuary so that we can live a truly healthy and happy life!

I am a huge supporter of living consciously and by living a ‘low-tox’ life. In this section, Cara shares the reasons behind why living a low-tox life is so important and how to make the transition much easier.

Key Points We Discussed:

Why should every household start living a low-tox life?
What do chemicals in the home do?

  • Chemicals place an additional burden on the body to break down and eliminate.
  • There create concerns for growing and developing bodies especially children because chemicals affect them greater.
  • Having chemicals in the home can affect our bodies in a number of ways: they can affect our hormones, nerves, accumulate to toxic levels, cause cancers, local irritation, exacerbate and worsen current illnesses.

How can someone switch to a low-tox lifestyle?

  • Removing a handful of products from your home can help significantly drop your toxin load at home.
  • Find where you sit on the spectrum – Are you a DIYer or are you full blown chemical lover?
