A painful ski accident left a former investment banker turning to acupuncture—and her immediate relief inspired an idea for a business. With a partner who already provided acupuncture to celebrities, Michelle Larivee envisioned a new kind of acupuncture service—and co-founded WTHN—ancient healing for modern life with acupuncture and organic herbs. Including Sound Therapy, heated tables, a wellness lounge and even vanity areas, WTHN is a thoughtfully designed experience offering affordable pampering and healing aimed at millennials who are focused on wellness. Michelle joins Socialfly Co-Founder Courtney Spritzer in the MouthMedia Network studio for a conversation about building her business and career, and describes her journey to success. Plus, a surprise!

In this episode:

  • How WTHN was designed to be located in the same areas where people live, work, and play
  • How Michelle grew her customer base more than 10X overnight 
  • Why investing in a business coach is her best advice for Entreprenistas
  • The concept of Prevent, Heal, Glow
  • Why the core values of WTHN relate to the desire to scale quickly
  • What it was like to run a new business and have a baby at the same time
  • And why a daily “run the world” dietary supplement might be very aptly named
