As a business owner, I try to make the time to take a step back and look at the business as a whole. Is the company where I want it to be? Am I proud of our product? What can we do to better serve our clients? As we approach our sixth month in business (can you believe it? Time flies!) I wanted to take moment and look back on all we’ve done, who we’ve served, and our vision to continue to grow and provide people with a natural path to their health. Here’s our first six months in review.
How it all began with Future Pharm
Every business has a story. Something inspires each and every business owner to step outside their comfort zone and pursue their passion. This is how it happened for me. I was experiencing some health issues that were directly related to inflammation. After years of physical therapy, non-prescription medications and treatments to relieve my symptoms, including headaches, muscle soreness, joint pain, fatigue, insomnia, and chronic inflammation, I tried turmeric, and to my amazement, I experienced significant relief, which led me to research turmeric uses. After extensive research, I decided to pursue my own turmeric extract formula to help others feel the same relief of symptoms, and experience the health benefits. Since I was now creating a product that others would use, I wanted to make sure I did it right, with the highest quality all the way, so I pursued organic ingredients, and earning a USDA organic label of the product, which is manufactured to CGMP standards. It was a huge learning curve to get everything in place, from labeling to barcodes, to packaging and more, but I was determined to do it the right way, and am satisfied that it turned out like it did.
Where we’re at now at Future Pharm
Here we are, six months later, and I am continually amazed at how the company keeps growing due to the popularity of the product. I get new testimonials daily, and the kind words I receive from happy customers who are experiencing the same pain relief that I did lets me know that I made the right choice creating Future Pharm. Always looking to improve and to hold our all-natural turmeric extract to the highest possible standards, I even went to an outside source for independent 3rd-party testing, and the product passed with flying colors. Looking to reach more people to show them how well the product works, I’ve appeared on Dr. Bob Martin’s radio talk show, which has really elevated awareness of not only my product, but turmeric in general. My next step was to make the product available in brick and mortar locations. I’m extremely proud to say that now Hi Health carries our product both online and in their stores, as well as Healthy Habits and Rainbow Farms Los Angeles, and several physician’s offices. As more people discover the power of turmeric, I feel honored to have played a part in helping people.
So, what’s next for Future Pharm?
Anyone that knows me knows that I’m a driven person, and this translates to how I run Future Pharm as well! I continue to tout the benefits to every doctor I run across, and am continually providing samples to medical professionals who want to see for themselves how well the product works. I am currently speaking to medical professionals about other applications for turmeric, and am looking to find more retail locations to carry the product. It’s been an amazing ride so far, and I couldn’t have done it without the support of friends, colleagues, and trusted business partners. I’m looking forward to writing my “1st Year in Review” post and am excited to see where we’ll be six months from now!
