It is so rewarding to work with customers to help them set up custom formulas for their specific needs, and then receive amazing feedback that their custom nutrition has solved all of the problems they were experiencing before! To hear that a customer was able to PR because they did not have to slow down due to severe GI cramping, like they had previously experienced, is simply amazing. I love working for a small business because we are all able to work together to tackle problems quickly and efficiently! I don't have to wait hours on a colleague to respond to an email, or get back to me on a question that a customer has, I can simply walk into their office and converse with them face to face. We are all close and it makes coming into work every-day that much more fun!”
