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

Hi Ronnie, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
My small business was developed from a stand point of “healing”, and what I mean by healing is ….. I was struggling with type 2 diabetes over 5 years ago and and things begin to change for me when I discovered I needed a lifestyle change , not a diet .. A diet is only short term thinking and changing your lifestyle to compliment your health and wellness involves changing the way you eat , think , and move , this is key to longevity!!

What should our readers know about your business?
My small black owned business focal point is to help balance a healthier lifestyle , I educate the people on the importance of what we saturate our mind body and souls with. One of the things that really sets us apart from anyone else is the honesty of real life situations and how we grew from them ,also allowing my consumer to feel like a part of our community than just a number , If it’s one thing that I would like to share with the world is “each one teach one”

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
A great time for a friend would include and awesome air bnb right in the heart of downtown off of the lake front with amazing views ,also a boat tour of my Amazing city , all week long we would enjoy brunch every morning courtesy of (NOBOUNDREEZLLC) also we would visit the historic (harolds )fried chicken shack on the south side of Chicago ,deep dish vegetable pizza from (beggars) ,and experience vegan soul food from the soul vegetarian !!! I would also Enjoy to show off the skyline and visit the historic soldier field downtown Chicago ,

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
My family initially deserves the credit , when I look at the faces of my children and wife I want to live for them !!!
