Tell us about your life before the venture/ leading up to your venture?
I moved to London from Poland in 2004 after my professional sports career ended due to a severe knee injury. I was 24 when I had to make a difficult decision to terminate something I loved, leave my family and, without speaking English, move to an entirely new world. I set up my first self-employed business in London in 2006, and in November 2020, I founded HPM Wellness.
Tell us something about your organization. What is it about and how is it helpful for people?
HPM Wellness is a vision of a woman in her midlife, who is ambitious, daring, elegant and unique in her being, but life circumstances put her own needs in second place. She is in the process of awakening, transforming, rediscovering and reinvention who she is today at her age. HPM Wellness supports in a holistic way the recreation journey of our female customers. We help to discover the truth and achieve grace by honoring self-expression.
What was impossible for our females becomes possible and obvious. The potential gets empowered to thrive.
HPM Wellness offers 360 degree vision on midlife women’s health and peak performance and we are very unique and brave about our approach.
What has been the response of the consumers towards your venture?
I must be sincere; the response is very encouraging and empowering. Women in midlife are left alone to deal with their life crises and to be honest, we are closing the gap between adult life and menopause and post-menopause life. Our female customers want someone to listen to and do something about the root causes of the problems they encounter.
Our offering is bespoke and unique. Even some of our programmes run in a small group setting.
It takes time to bring awareness to many women because they focus on calorie counts to solve their body problems when the real solutions need to target whole women’s lives.
Our offering is a step forward for many of them; a step ahead to recognise your beauty and uniqueness to champion whatever she wants in their personal and professional life.
Health is often the most significant problem why women in their midlife feel stuck, and we bring our 360 solutions to their situation.
How has your life changed because of your venture?
Since I founded HPM Wellness, I have had to dive into a place I would never enter. I had to let go of my insecurities, self-judgments and limits about what I could be. I had to become my leader and trust myself more.
I had to let go of being ” Miss Perfect” into a ” Miss of Action“. My athletic mindset has helped me overcome many limits I have put on myself, but without daily practice, I will not progress.
The last few months ( since March 2022) have been compelling for HPM Wellness and me. I have been invited to summits, written and podcasts interviews, and written articles, new collaborations with other brands are growing, and more female customers are searching for our offering.
Give a motivational message for the audience/women who are reading this.
Lead Yourself First from the place of body- mind- spirit connection rather than from the position of fear and low self-worth. If you feel your life, work, or relationship is not; you have to imagine you have the power to change and transform it.
