A Woman Of Many Hats

Interview By Anailis Diaz

Meet Mari Diaz, they call her a woman of many hats because she has so many passions and never gives up on herself to make them come true. As the founder of OM, MD Apothecary, Self Love Club, Bloom Collective, Bloom Magazine, and Co-founder of Just Begin Magazine and The Orange Lab, she is a very busy woman but in this interview, we got to chat with her to learn more about her and shares some advice to our readers. As you can see, she is very busy! But that doesn't stop her from pursuing her many passions.

Q: Can you tell us about your early career and how you got yourself established in your industry?

A: I’ve been in the healthcare insurance industry for over 20 years. I got obsessed with holistic wellness after being diagnosed with hyperthyroidism. I saw how the doctor's first option was to give me a pill and move on ... I didn’t agree with it so I did my own research (I’ve always been a believer natural medicine). So, I went back to my roots and researched everything about my condition and how I can treat myself naturally. As I learned more, I wanted to share my knowledge and help others suffering and became aware of all the chemicals we put into our bodies not even knowing were hurting our health and how it affects our entire system. That is why I’m so passionate about creating this brand and awareness for women!

Q: How does a day in your life look like these days? Morning or Night routines?

A: My days are insane! However, I’m getting better these days. I’m making sure no matter how busy I am, I make time for myself and I do that by having a morning and night routine. Many have heard me talk about it in my workshops! Running three companies keeps me busy but I wouldn’t want it any other way.

Q: What’s the most enjoyable or fulfilling part of what you do?

A: Helping women and sharing all the knowledge, I’m learning as I recently got my master herbalist certification. My passion is really helping women find themselves and seeing them put themselves first. I love hearing how I’ve made a difference in their lives. It makes me happy to know I helped someone.

 Who are some of your biggest inspirations?

A: My family! I want to leave them a legacy - everything I do is to give my family the freedom, time, and possibilities to dream big and never give up on their goals! There’s no limit to what they can achieve and most importantly what we can achieve together as a family. We’re unstoppable &  anything you set your mind to do, you can do it. My motto is I CAN and I WILL.

Q: What would you tell someone who is interested in starting a business or pursuing a passion?

A: I would tell them it’s going to hard but it’s totally worth it . No matter how difficult it gets, do not give up! There’s going to be bad days but the most important thing is to never give up. Everyone has a purpose in this life and sometimes you won’t know until you fail a few times what your true purpose is.

Q: What do you see as some of your biggest accomplishments?

A: My kids, my marriage of 30 years, and having a successful 17 year business that is rapidly growing.
