Today we’d like to introduce you to Antonella Nardi and Desirée Chance.
Antonella and Desirée, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
Basically, we are two women who came from very different industries of Fashion & Modeling. Throughout our process we learned that wellness was the main contributing factor to doing well, feeling great, and being able to conquer our jobs efficiently and happily. We decided to create a company that focused on supplying our favorite super food powders from safe & eco-friendly sources, and most importantly, of the highest quality.
We’re also avid travelers – for work and play. So making our product with a travel advantage was important for us. Because of that, since launching last year in November, we’ve been working with like-minded health and wellness brands that focus on healthy lifestyles for people on-the-go.
With a couple sales here and there, some product in the right hands, and in the right places – and all of a sudden, Yourlixir is becoming the “thing” people go to feel good, and be healthier, just as we’d hoped it would be.
So, as you know, we’re impressed with Yourlixir – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
What we do! Well, we like to say we’re a lifestyle brand because we’re not only about the products we sell. We try to portray what being healthy and in control of your body, mind and life is really about. We pride ourselves on self-sustaining practices, on lessening our carbon footprint to help the planet as a whole, and mostly – we pride ourselves on conscious, mindful consumption. Global travel showed us food culture around the world – and, not to dig too deep on this, but our amazing country (US) unfortunately plays a huge role in the “consumer disadvantage” we as Americans are being affected by – health-wise, weight-wise, environment-wise…etc. If we learn to mindfully consume based on nutritional value vs. unconscious eating, not only will we all start feeling better, but we can also start being more mindful of our personal waste, our contribution to society, and overall just living life more mindfully, “kind-fully” and with purpose.
What sets us apart from others is that we really are all about the customer. We want our customers to have a life change with our products. We have something for everyone, and if taken consistently – these super foods can make a positive impact on your overall wellbeing. We personally take them on a daily basis, and because of the positive effects, we were inspired to share them and our mindset with everyone we can reach. We really hope to make a positive impact on everyone, and at the very least, leave people feeling more in control of their health and happiness.
Let’s touch on your thoughts about our city – what do you like the most and least?
When you’re in Miami on a beautiful, sunny day – it’s hard to not feel the tropical & sexy aura that this city exudes. It’s like nowhere else in the world, and it’s like this all year long! Besides that, Miami is so dynamic and is growing in so many ways. We can’t wait to see what’s to come!
