On today’s episode, we are joined by Amy Ma, also known as the Paleo Angel, to talk about her company and what it’s like being an entrepreneur. Amy is the creator of the Paleo Power Ball, a delicious treat, which not only satisfies your sweet tooth but is also a source of nourishing, powerful ingredients. Along with being paleo, Power Balls are also AIP friendly, since Amy suffers from several autoimmune disorders herself. Like many entrepreneurs in the health food space, Amy found herself burnt out with deteriorating health before finding paleo, which turned out to be life-changing for many reasons. She healed many of her conditions and also managed to leave her law career to pursue her business full-time. Through creating Paleo Balls, she has not only been able to provide sweet treats for an underserved market, but she has also had the opportunity to express herself creatively. Still a small, handcrafted brand, Paleo Balls looks set for a very bright future in the sweet treat space.

“It wasn’t just another paleo bar. Paleo bars are great, but the autoimmune protocol community was lacking in stuff that they could eat and snacks on the go.” — @paleo_angel [0:12:21.1]

“Give it some time, be patient and be diligent. As far as the health journey, especially if you do have health issues, it’s worth it to start feeling better.” — @paleo_angel [0:24:08.1]
