National Women's Small Business Month: Meet Gwendolyn S. Woody


Introduce yourself to the Visions of Greatness audience.

Hello. My I am Gwen. Thank you for having me. I am The Nutritionist and Nurse. I assist people in creating healthier lifestyles with affordability, sustainability, and obtainability, with a focus in diabetes.

Who or what inspired you to pursue entrepreneurship?

I have always wanted to become an entrepreneur, but after I had my sons, I knew I had to become an entrepreneur to be a blessing to my future generations.


Tell the Visions of Greatness audience more about your products/services.

My main product is coaching. I can coach anyone, but I really love coaching Black Women that are "running the world" and not taking care of themselves. I offer meal planning, nutrition education, and diabetes education. I have also implemented a program for companies and persons that work from home that facilitates productivity and an increase of investment.



What adjustments have you made in your life and business since the pandemic?

I actually worked three COVID-19 assignments so far this year. So, now that I am home, everything is virtual and I am okay with that. With all intent, I am focused strategically growing my business.


What advice would you give to women struggling to balance their life and business?

When you struggle, as I still do, look at the reason and purpose of the venture. Look at your future self, future life, and your now. I believe that is a good place to start. Ask for help in areas that you can not figure out, everything is not on Google or YouTube. You may need a mentor or coach to help you. Talk with your family and see if they can earnestly support you. If your mind is tired, than take a break, it's okay. No one ever stated that it was going to be easy, just don't give up. Last but not least, prioritize your intents, needs, wants, and what haves.

Share with us one ingredient in your secret sauce for success.

I don't know if there is a secret sauce, verses hard work and determination along with a cup full of failure and mistakes to learn what actually works for you and your business. Each persons path, reality, and dream are different.
