From Bleachers to Business: Two Moms Capitalize on Passion for Health

When they met for the first time on the bleachers at their kids’ gymnastics meet, Susan Edwards and Monica Sanchez had no idea that just a few years later they would become co-owners of a thriving health and wellness center.

Of course, back in 2009, the initial conversation subjects for these would-be mompreneurs centered on their children and nutrition. A conversation about shared passions and aspirations soon followed. And it wasn’t long before they realized they were both at a crossroads in life.

Monica was in the process of a closing a business and Susan was working at a preschool. With their children now older, they needed something new, something more… something inspirational. Then one day, while doing sit-ups on exercise medicine balls, Monica had an epiphany. “I know what I want to do,” she said. “I want to open some type of holistic nutrition business. And I’d love for you to do it with me.”

So, they created a vision board. And over the next few months, they started a home-based consulting business and planned for something more. There were challenges, of course. There were those who told them to start small, to plan on the banks denying first-time business owners a loan. But they persevered and secured their first loan.

In 2014 they purchased a 4,800 square foot facility in Brea, California, and H-bling (short for ‘Holistic Balanced Living’) was born.

Today H-Bling is a fast-growing Health & Recover Center providing Cryotherapy, Infrared & Nutritional Therapies to a diverse clientele of athletes, health enthusiasts, celebrities and families so they can naturally heal, feel and live better.
