I was recently approached by Dr. Mercola Premium Supplements to test out their Complete Probiotics. I was happy to oblige, since I’m a big believer in the power of probiotics. They sent me 2 bottles of the probiotics to try out, along with a couple of their other products as shown.

Not familiar with probiotics? That’s too bad. Let me offer a brief explanation of what they are.

Our digestive system contains good and bad bacteria. When our system is overwhelmed with bad bacteria, it can lead to various gastrointestinal upsets. The idea is to provide as much good bacteria so the digestive system can function at optimum capacity. Good bacteria can come from quality foods, including yogurt, that contain active cultures, which are known as probiotics. In order to increase the amount of good bacteria in your system, you can now get these probiotics in a pill form.

I learned about probiotics years ago, and they have helped me to address my issues with IBS and to lose weight.

Dr. Mercola’s Complete Probiotics offer a high quality form, which includes 70 Billion CFU (when it comes to this number, the higher the better) and 10 strains of beneficial bacteria (including the all-important acidophilus). The acid and bile resistant formula increases the likelihood that the bacteria will survive and flourish in your digestive system.

These capsules are easy to take, with little-to-no scent and a reasonable size to swallow. Complete Probiotics come in a durable glass bottle. If you’re looking to improve your digestive health, you may want to tap into the power of probiotics.

Thanks to Dr. Mercola for providing me with the opportunity to test out these great products.

What area(s) of your business do you struggle with most and what do you plan on changing? 

I launched my solopreneur career in 2009 after leaving my part-time job due to discrimination. One of my first steps toward building my solo career was establishing my blog Live Simply, Live Thrifty, Live Savvy.

The Problem

But as my career took off, and I got offered opportunities to provide blog writing, publication, and social media management services, it became more difficult to find time to write quality content for my own blog.

This is one of my biggest struggles as a solopreneur—to find time to promote my own business when I’m so busy providing quality service to my clients. When push comes to shove, normally my clients win.  My own blog gets somewhat neglected until there’s a shift in my client workload, and I find myself with more time to devote to my own business. As much as this pattern troubles me, sometimes I have no choice but to let my blog go by the wayside, but it never makes me happy. Not only does this affect my blog/website, but in turn, my social media outlets.

The Solution

I have tried to remedy this by accepting guest blog posts on occasion, including for my Exceptional Entrepreneur blog series. I have also monetized my blog through sponsored posts, which makes the time spent on my blog more advantageous. If I’m offered a product review, I will often take advantage of it, as it forces me to produce new blog content. When there are writing prompts provided by One Woman Shop, I try to take the time to contribute, because I find the website to be such a useful resource about a topic I’m very interested in. If I have to spend some extra time on a weekend writing blog content (like I am right now), I try to carve out the time to do so.

Moving forward, I need to take advantage of more opportunities that come my way to promote my own blog, since it acts as an online portfolio for potential clients. Since I also provide social media strategy and management services, my social media platforms act as living examples of my capabilities.  I need to start pursuing additional sponsored post opportunities that make blogging particularly profitable. An important part of being a solopreneur is having the ability to learn, grow, and modify your strategy as you move forward in your business.

What do you struggle with in your solopreneur business? What steps are you taking to improve?
