International Women’s Day is a big deal at O+R. Not only do we have a woman-led team, but we’re also woman-owned, which makes our commitment to helping women incorporate wellness into their own lives non-negotiable.
To celebrate International Women’s Day, we’re spotlighting Katy Hearn, one of our favorite entrepreneurs and do-it-all women. Katy is a self-made fitness + wellness mogul. She’s the founder + owner of Onyx + Rose, along with FIT by Katy, Stori, and Alani Nu, along with being a wife and mother to three!
We sat down with her to ask her about her journey with wellness, entrepreneurship, and more.
Q: What does it mean to you to be a female entrepreneur?
A: To me it represents the breaking of barriers and stereotypes that have traditionally limited women's opportunities in business.
I am a walking example of how we can challenge these barriers and demonstrate our ability to succeed in business despite these obstacles.
Q: What do you love most about being an entrepreneur?
A: I love the freedom and flexibility that comes with running your own business. As an entrepreneur, you have the ability to make your own decisions, set your own schedule and choose the projects you work on. Through owning my own businesses I’ve been able to pursue my dreams and create products I’m passionate about.
Q: In what areas of your life do you feel like CBD has elevated/impacted most?
A: Since incorporating CBD into my wellness routine, I’ve experienced a significant reduction in stress and anxiety. I find that I’m able to manage my workload and personal/mom life more effectively without feeling overwhelmed. Additionally, CBD has helped me sleep better, leaving me feeling more rested and refreshed in the mornings!
Q: What advice would you give to aspiring female entrepreneurs?
A: As a female entrepreneur myself, I would advise aspiring female entrepreneurs to be confident in their abilities and not be afraid to take risks. Don't let the fear of failure hold you back from pursuing your dreams and goals. Be adaptable and open-minded, and be willing to learn from your mistakes and failures. And finally, don't forget to prioritize self-care and take time to recharge and refresh, as building a business can be a demanding and stressful journey. Remember to celebrate your successes, no matter how small they may seem, and never give up on your vision and passion!
We’re celebrating International Women’s Day today, but we strive to celebrate women each day by creating products that restore balance + wellness and enrich their lives.
