In this conversation between Amir Anzur And Roz Martin, the visionary behind The Collagen Company delves into her extraordinary path. She talks about transitioning from a corporate job at Johnson & Johnson to becoming a successful entrepreneur.
Around eight months ago, Roz had a pivotal moment while working at a conference for her former employer. She witnessed colleagues celebrating newly diagnosed cancer patients, which made her question the focus on treating disease rather than promoting well-being. This led to her desire to shift towards the well-being and nutraceutical market, emphasizing health over sickness.
Roz’s journey started with her attendance at a webpreneur camp, which laid the foundation for her online presence with The Collagen Company. Despite being inexperienced with e-commerce and online marketing, she was inspired to take action. She purchased the domain name during the camp and launched her first website.
Transitioning from her corporate job to full-time entrepreneurship was a significant step. Roz employed a strategic approach, working on her business while maintaining her full-time job. This approach allowed her to bootstrap her business without incurring debt.
Roz now operates The Collagen Company, offering global shipping and plans for expansion into markets in the Middle East, South Korea, and Singapore. Her journey underscores the importance of determination, perseverance, and finding genuine passion when pursuing entrepreneurship.
The interview reflects her excitement about the freedom to pursue her passion full-time, emphasizing the enjoyment she derives from her work. Roz’s success story serves as inspiration for aspiring entrepreneurs, highlighting the challenges and rewards of entrepreneurship.
