Lola Berry’s love for her career
I first came across Lola Berry when someone was talking about a pumpkin pie smoothie. I could not believe that something like this even existed. It was not until I discovered the Happy Place is where these babies are created, a gorgeous smoothie bar by Lola Berry.
When it comes to getting the world excited about health and good food, there is very little Lola Berry won’t do. She’s convinced a TV host to swallow raw wasabi on live national television, how awesome is that!
With a Bachelor of Health Science (majoring in Nutritional Medicine at Endeavour College of Natural Health), Lola Berry knows what she’s talking about. She has got a secret: the most nutritious, healthy food is also the tastiest! Whether through her TV appearances, radio spots or her popular web series, Lola is reaching out to people all over the globe…and people are listening!
How amazing is this women? I was so thrilled to be able to interview Lola to hear how her passion initially started to where it is now.
Get ready to be inspired!
What made you want to start a career in nutrition?
I loved learning about the impact that food has on our body, mind and soul, so in any moment I had, I would be researching superfoods. I just knew I had to study it, but I knew I didn’t want to help just one person at a time. Then one morning I woke up and thought, I’ve got it! I’ll be like the Steve Irwin of health!! He’s my hero, I love his authentic passion!
Who greatly played a significant role in furthering your career, i.e mentors, inspirational models etc?
My two heroes are my Dad, who’s always said “keep kicking goals girl” and Steve Irwin, I love how unapologetically real he is! That’s so rare and pretty magical if you ask me! Then when I meet anyone who’s living their passion and doing what they love – that inspires me heaps and it just feels nice to be around that energy.
Do you have any advice for others contemplating a career as Nutritionist?
Follow your heart, don be afraid of the sciences, I got 31% on my first chemistry exam and made I got back up, so down be afraid of the tricky stuff! I always said my degree as my ticket to the ball, once I have my ticket to the ball then I can wear whatever frock I’d like!
How did you create your path to success?
Honestly, I don’t even think about it like that, I just do my thing and work hard and make sure I’m loving what I’m doing. I don’t really see it as anything else than doing what I love.
What do you see as the future in the natural therapy industry?
I think it’s gaining so much momentum and getting more and more popular which is unreal. So I’m feeling pretty honoured to be part of this awesome space! So exciting!
