Here Is My Background
Tina Anderson, Founder and CEO of Just Thrive Probiotic, had a thriving career as a lawyer in the pharmaceutical industry for 15 years when her passion for natural health took her life in an entirely new direction.
Through the hectic career and family-building years, Tina strived for a natural and holistic lifestyle for her family — avoiding antibiotics, eliminating over-the-counter medications, living an active lifestyle and eating whole, real foods. She focused on her family living a healthy, well-balanced lifestyle in order to stay healthy and prevent illness.
Tina learned that an imbalance in the gut leads to the majority of the chronic illnesses we face, and in order to rebalance your gut you need to take a daily probiotic. Unfortunately, the majority of probiotics on the market simply don’t work and are not natural.
She set out to find a probiotic that was nature’s true probiotic and found it in spore-forming strains that are now used in Just Thrive Probiotic. Working closely with Dr. Simon Cutting, a world-renowned probiotic expert at London University Royal Holloway, she gained access to the most widely studied probiotic strains in the world.
Just Thrive Probiotic & Antioxidant was born!
The fascinating thing about these bacillus strains is that they “read” the condition of the gut and have the ability to eliminate pathogens; and they also create compounds and nutrients to help our good bacteria flourish. It’s like being the gardener of the gut. Just Thrive gets rid of the weeds and helps grow the plants that have been stepped on and trampled on. This approach to gut health is much different (and more effective) than the majority of probiotics on the market. What has been most satisfying is the profound impact Just Thrive has had on customers’ health and well-being. Tina always says “Just Thrive is ground zero for optimal health.”
Tina has made it her mission to bring these totally unique spore-forming probiotic strains to the U.S. and has been breaking limits within a saturated industry with a game-changing probiotic. Further, educating an industry on the new science surrounding gut health has been a huge obstacle to overcome but she’s doing it one day at a time. A recent clinical study published in peer-reviewed World Journal of Gastrointestinal Pathophysiology showed that the powerful strains in Just Thrive Probiotic & Antioxidant are healing leaky gut in as little as thirty days!
Here Are The Top Three Lessons I Learned From My Experiences
Experience is a great teacher and there’s really no substitute for it. Here are Tina’s top three lessons from her experience:
1) Find your life’s work and do it.
When you do work in line with who you are, everything falls into place and the rewards are much greater. (And it’s a lot more fun!) While you need to have a plan, be open to change. Be willing to try new things and to go off track when inspiration hits. There is really no replacement for hard work. Stay focused and remember that slow and steady wins the race.
2) Read! Read! Read!
Reading is the gateway to learning and knowledge.
The one habit ultra-successful people have in common is that they read a lot. Knowledge builds up, like compound interest. Learn from other people’s experience. Read books and articles from entrepreneurs and motivational leaders to inspire and educate yourself. Make a daily habit of reading and sharing what you learn with your team.
3) Invest in the best.
Invest in the best products, the best people, and the best ideas. When you find something that is the best, be willing to take a risk to fulfill your vision. Surround yourself with people who know what they’re doing. And remember to be grateful to those who help you along the way.
