We had the good fortune of connecting with Yalda Alaoui and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Yalda, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
I wanted to create a health platform that would have saved me from years of medical treatment and pain had it existed when I was suffering from auto-immune issues.

What should our readers know about your business?
My business is an online platform helping people worldwide improve their gut health, reduce inflammation, and regain vitality. As a former capital market professional and a hands-on mother, I am used to working hard, but nothing could have prepared me for the demands of launching my own business. I have worked for several years without taking a full day off, regularly waking up at 5 am to get some work done before the day starts during vacations with my family. Entrepreneurship has been a steep learning curve, and I have learned so much about legal, human resources, accountancy, IT, digital marketing, and more. As a founder, I have to familiarise myself with all the facets of a business outside of my field of expertise, nutrition.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
London has many hidden gems. I would not miss having a platter of oysters at Wilton’s, my favorite restaurant, which opened in 1742! I love a walk by the river in Hammersmith, going for a play in the West End, visiting the current exhibition at the Royal Academy of arts, and doing a long morning walk around the serpentine in Hyde Park!

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
My online followers, my children, and friends who believed in the impact of my work are the people I could not have done it without.
