Dr. Hanan Selim is the founder of Healology Wellness in Dubai, UAE. She is the mother of 3 amazing young adults. We had the pleasure of sitting down with her to learn more about her business and her personal life. Read the full story here:
Mompreneurs WW: Tell us about your company.
Dr. Hanan: My company runs a 2-day, 6 day, 10 day and 24 day trainings for “wellness into wealth” system called Healology that tremendously transforms leaders and professionals’ wellness by experiencing the breakthrough and transformations in the first 2 days that that leads into an academic training of the complete Healology system for attendees to not only transform their own wealth and wellness but to do the same for their family, friends and clients. It allows Entrepreneurs and executives from the corporate, academic, government, small business and non-profit sectors from around the world to gain exponential performance to face and prevent epidemic chronic conditions and the imminent technology the future will bring.
Mompreneurs WW: How did the idea of starting it come about and who inspired you?
Dr. Hanan: The idea came about over 10 years of research, testing and measuring on the best testing ground….my own life. I was at the top of my game in my healthcare career, working on the P&T (Pharmaceutics and therapeutics) committee at the leading hospitals in New York city, I found myself on the other side of the hospital bed by becoming the patient. I had developed pre-cancerous cells in my ovaries, endometriosis, Polycystic ovarian syndrome, diabetes, obesity, fatty liver and the worst acne I ever had in my life. I ran to what I knew best and that was conventional medicine that unfortunately didn’t help. As a matter of fact, my cancer indicators skyrocketed from 50 to 700 in less than 3 months’ time. Then I tried complementary medicine, I even went as far as becoming certified in NLP, Mindfulness, Energy healing and hypnotherapy. They seemed to work but very slowly. So, then I started implementing what worked from the conventional and complementary side that lead me to develop a revolutionary, scientific and evidence-based system that uses cutting-edge tools and techniques that prevents and improves your health and wellness into wealth. This lead to me publishing my international book “second chances” in both English and Arabic, becoming an award winning speaker and sharing the stage with world leaders.
Mompreneurs WW: What is the best part of what you do and the toughest?
Dr. Hanan: The best part is the blessings wished upon me and my family from clients, attendees and practitioners that are very grateful for my system, trainings and transformations from limiting beliefs, chronic health conditions and brain fog that allows them to thrive not just survive.
The toughest is like any entrepreneurs journey, trying to get your message out to the masses so they are also empowered to take control over their lives. Trying to get a team together that allows me to focus on the work and delivery of the Healology wellness trainings.
Mompreneurs WW: How many kids do you have and how old are they?
Dr. Hanan: I have 3 amazing young adults. I have 2 young men and 1 young lady that I’m so proud of for being self-efficient in their studies and supporting my business so I can deliver top quality trainings and transformations.
Mompreneurs WW: How do you juggle work and life balance?
Dr. Hanan: My kids and husband are very supportive in helping me balance my work and our family life. I always set aside evenings and weekends for family time and the rest of the time for my trainings. I fully believe in creating a strategy where you work with not in your business. I have created such a strategy that prioritizes the important parts in my wheel of wellness and life. The family needs to be on board and support you. The communication channels need to be wide open for this to happen.
Mompreneurs WW: What’s a book you always recommend and why?
Dr. Hanan: Besides my book, I always recommend “think and grow rich” by Napoleon Hill. It truly is an amazing book that I recommend for individuals want to have flow in their business and life.
Mompreneurs WW: What advice would you give a Mompreneur who was just starting out?
Dr. Hanan: ? I would advise her to learn from every experience, good or bad as this will lead you to your success. Change your vocabulary with things like failure to feedback and F.E.A.R. (False Evidence Appearing Real). Because you need a proper mindset to get to your goals faster and better.
