Entrepreneur Lessons with Kristen Bowen
On today's episode of the Spapreneur Podcast, Ramona is joined by the incredible Kristen Bowen. It took a complete health crash to lead Kristen Bowen to create Living the Good Life Naturally in 2002. Autoimmune issues and a
series of failed surgeries left Kristen bedridden and depressed, with daily seizures. Through research and looking for outside-the-box
solutions, she discovered that to regain her health, she needed to build a strong foundation. That foundation included food as
medicine and the number one building block for optimal health: Magnesium. She discovered that oral magnesium was not effective
and began using liquid magnesium as a foot soak, finding that the body could utilize it more effectively.
Kristen’s health improved. She began to research and create natural bath and body products for herself, her family, and friends with
skin sensitivities. She began sharing her knowledge as she researched and found clean sources of whole food supplements and
minerals. She never intended to start a business, but friends offered to pay her for her products and advice. Living the Good Life
Naturally was created.
Starting with one-on-one consultations with clients to farmers markets for the bath and body line, Kristen’s business quickly moved
from the small kitchen and extra bedroom in her home to a retail space in Logan, Utah. She hosted a Rocky Mountain Regional radio
show for seven years, where she answered natural health questions. This led to workshops and keynote opportunities at natural
health conferences. This quickly led to needing a full-time team for production, dealing with marketing, running the retail shop, and
many things that it takes to run a business.
From small beginnings in her 10 by 15 basement kitchen to her warehouse, store, and online business, Kristen has helped thousands
of individuals reclaim their own health foundation. As she tells her clients: “You are the CEO of your health. Let me be on your board.
