Ask someone how they’re doing these days and, according to health-industry entrepreneur and consumer trend savant, Jan Bruce, they’re more likely to respond with “busy” than “fine.”
And that’s not a great thing. Because busy is often code for “I’m stressed and overwhelmed, but I don’t know what to do about it.”
Bruce experienced this in her own life. After building Body + Soul magazine into an industry-leading media venture, she sold the business to Martha Stewart’s Omnimedia, where she then became SVP and Managing Director for six years.
But, something was wrong…
Jan was becoming more and more stressed and less vested in what she was doing on a day to day basis. And it was taking a toll on her mindset, her health and her life. So, she stepped down to reclaim her own center, her sanity and her health. And along the way, discovered something she’d always known, but was now in a position to do something about.
She was not alone. Tens of millions suffer the life-stifling effects of stress and many of the current treatment modalities are either marginally-effective or unrealistic in the context of peoples’ lives.
In her words, “stress is the new fat.”
With that she set out on a quest to build a better stress-obliterating mousetrap, founding a new online venture - MeQuilibrium.com - with the goal of leveraging science and technology to help people win the battle against stress and live more fully expressed, healthier lives.
In Bruce’s words, “we intend to own the ecosystem around stress.”
