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

Hi Gosia, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
Originally, the main motive behind starting my own business was to help people who can relate with my health struggles, and are not able to find one health supplemental food to nourish their body. On my path of dealing with anemia, heart and kidney malfunctions, I ended up going to a Holistic Medicine University in Wroclaw, Poland ( a city I was born and raised). During my 4 years of studying there I was able to understand my body from more holistic perspective, and I realized that our body’s natural state is a state of “equilibrium”( homeostasis), a place where it reaches a “self-healing” state. In order for me to establish that point I needed to nourish my malnourished organism. The problem was that all available vitamins, and essential minerals on the market , are in a form of pills, capsules, tablets, or best option -powders ( needed to be mixed with a liquid). I represent a group of people who have an “aversion to swallowing pills”, and I couldn’t find a single supplemental product which would provide a complete nutritional value, so I created my own.
My main motive is to help, to educate and to inspire to leave a healthier lifestyle.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
My company Gosha’s Organics, is a recognized leader in Innovative PHYTO Herbal Honey Infusions.

As our lives have evolved to busy schedules and juggling of responsibilities, our attempts to eat a balanced diet can sometimes take a back seat. We have set out to shake up the supplement industry and introduce a new and innovative way to take supplements in the form of honey blends which are versatile, easy and enjoyable to take – no pills, capsules or powders. We believe that the best supplements for your body are as close to food as possible to maximize absorption, that is why we choose honey as the ideal carrier in our fusions. The ideas of Ayurveda, Holistic and Chinese medicines guide the principles behind the blends of herbs that together with honey create ODNOVA.

We are the only company that makes such diversified, nourishing supplement in a food form. Our product stands out from many different perspectives, and that is single most exiting factor for us and our large growing group of customers.

Being 7 years in the business is not easy, and often not possible for many companies. We are not only growing from year to year, but despite overcoming Woolsey Fires and COVID pandemic, we are now better than ever. The other reason we are very proud is the fact, that we were able to do it without spending a single dollar on marketing (!), our customers referrals, are the only sales vehicle we have. We take care of our customers, by making each transaction as personal as possible, we know each of them as if they were our extended family members. They fill it, and value it.

The main lesson we learned, which became our no.1 rule is; “to be transparent, and to treat everybody the way we would want to be treated.”

We want the World to know about us is that our mission is to inspire everyone to take an active role in making every-day conscious and informed choices leading to better health. Purity, integrity, authenticity, and transparency are fundamental values in Gosia’ personal life, her hand-crafted products, and the mission of her company.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Get lost in the hiking trails in Santa Monica Mountains, then visit Malibu Farm Cafe in Malibu. Experience sushi in Nobu in Malibu, with a beautiful ocean sound, and the warm breeze.

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?
Definitely my husband Glen. He is the only person, who always 100% believed in me and my potential. Despite the fact, he is a fitness enthusiast, and very health conscious himself, he is open to my food suggestions, and trust my judgement and my sources of information. Interestingly, he is also the person, who doesn’t take any supplements, or medicine, yet Odnova is the only product he uses on a daily basis. Because of him, I was able to take Gosha’s Organics to the level is now.
