Q: When did you know you wanted to take an entrepreneurial path?

A: I became a health coach in 2020 after years of navigating my entire health journey. I quickly realized I wanted to touch more lives than I was able to one on one. I am still offering coaching, yet Matcha Nude allows me to support many more people in elevate their lives through intentional action, thousands more!

Q: What have you enjoyed most about starting your own company?

A: The community of entrepreneurs I have been supported by! This is also my #1 tip. FIND YOUR COMMUNITY. Surround yourself with like-minded entrepreneurs on a mission to change the world and you will have the best support system in every stage of your business. Mentors in this same capacity are game changers!

Q: What is your favorite productivity app?

A: My favorite productivity app is not an app at all but a pen and paper with just 3 things that if I accomplished them today, today would be amazing! As an entrepreneur, the list is never ending and creating realistic goals for myself as been the biggest challenge. That and having a partner that reminds me it’s time to turn off, wind down and get some sleep.


While visiting the Asheville area, Samantha recommends:

  • Asheville has so much great food and great trails. There is something for everyone. Plant and Limones are two of my favorite restaurants yet I really don’t know if you can go wrong with your choices here. I would absolutely recommend a visit to the sauna house, a drive up the parkway and any of our amazing hikes!
