When did you launch the business?


What led you to where you are today?

My personal mental health journey led me to explore natural remedies like vitamins, minerals, and herbs. Yet, I often find myself relying on blind faith - questioning their origin, purity, and quality. Not finding a brand I trusted, I founded Ready To. With us, you'll have full knowledge of what goes into your body and how it's sourced. Our partners share our dedication to transparency and sustainability throughout the supply chain.

What do you wish you knew before embarking on your entrepreneurial journey? 

Being an entrepreneur means mastering the art of adapting to the unexpected and rolling with the delays, from suppliers to merchants and ad platforms, as timelines are never set in stone and are beyond your control.

What is the most difficult decision you've had to make regarding your business so far? 

Eliminating suppliers and contract manufacturers who failed to deliver on the agreed-upon timeline, as that would mean resetting the clock and starting from scratch.

What can you help the VEGPRENEUR community with?

Ingredient sourcing, finding contract manufacturers.

How can the VEGPRENEUR community help you?

Fun fact about you:
