Suzie Yorke, Founder of Love Good Fats, on the Shift from Executive to Entrepreneur

Suzie Yorke is on a mission to bring healthy fats back. A mom, eleven-time Ironman competitor and yoga enthusiast, Suzie spent years adhering to a low-fat diet only to hit a wall in her mid-40s. After reading Nina Teicholz’s best seller, Big Fat Surprise, she immediately shifted to a high-fat, low-carb diet, and felt better right away. While she loved the benefits of her new lifestyle, Suzie found it challenging to find convenient, good-fat snacks. Seeing a gap in the marketplace and a huge opportunity to help others through food, Suzie developed Love Good Fats, a company that produces high-fat, low-carb, and low-sugar products.

Today, Suzie leads Love Good Fats’ expansion as it quickly becomes one of the fastest-growing bar brands in North America. As a 30-year veteran of the CPG industry, Suzie has worked at high-profile companies such as Proctor & Gamble, PepsiCo, Kraft Heinz, Weight Watchers, and Zag. Utilizing her accomplished marketing background, personal journey, and deep devotion and passion for health, Suzie is on a mission to spread the word that fat is back, and sugar is out! Suzie was recognized by her peers and the community with the 2019 Mompreneur :registered: Start Up Award.

Sylvie Bougie a eu la chance de s’entretenir avec Mériane Labrie de Madame Labriski! On y découvre une femme passionnée qui carbure au défi! #entrepreneur #quebec #alimentation

Madame Labriski, c’est Mériane Labrie, la femme qui carbure à la purée de dattes. Entrepreneure visionnaire, elle est auteure de best-sellers culinaires et de romans jeunesse, conférencière en série, marathonienne, maman de 2 jeunes enfants et de la marque Madame Labriski inc., qui comprend aussi Mini Labriski.

Ses livres de recettes (plus de 200 000 exemplaires vendus au Québec) sont traduits en anglais et seront lancés en Europe en 2021. Elle présente des gammes de produits alimentaires sans sucre raffiné ajouté disponible dans plus de 300 points de vente et a la ferme ambition de faire évoluer l’industrie de l’alimentation. Lauréate de nombreux prix et distinctions, sa mission est de diminuer la consommation de sucre raffiné pour améliorer la santé…
Inspirée par les plus grandes histoires de réussite entrepreneuriale mondiales, elle a décidé ne pas rêver sa vie, mais de faire de sa vie un grand rêve. C’est les deux pieds sur Terre et la tête dans les nuages qu’elle avance telle une marathonienne infatigable dans sa grande quête de changer le monde, une bouchée de purée de dattes à la fois.

Amoureuse des marques inspirantes (elle a été conceptrice-rédactrice et stratège publicitaire avant de devenir la Madame), son but ultime est de faire de Madame Labriski inc. une marque assez forte et puissante pour pouvoir, un jour, propulser fièrement des athlètes québécois et canadiens aux Jeux Olympiques.

Molly Sanders Talks About Her Highly Effective, Results-Driven, 100% Online Wellness Programs

As someone who binge ate for years…I know what frustration, resignation, and guilt around food feels like. As someone who overcame binge eating, I know what it’s like on the other side of that. Binge eating may not be your thing, but everyone has something they can’t quite handle about their health and nutrition. Now, I’m on a mission to change the global state of health from sick-care to health-care: where we spend more time tending to our health vs. managing our illness.

Combining her holistic training and years working in content, publishing, and online education, Molly Sanders has created highly effective, results-driven, 100% online wellness programs. She has helped thousands of people look past what they put in their mouths and to get real (pun intended) about what it takes to truly heal and make changes that last.

Molly graduated with honors from the Institute of Holistic Nutrition in 2015. She also holds a dual B.A. in Literature and Modern Languages from Kansas State University. Molly has been featured on the cover of Future Female Magazine, in Thrive Magazine, quoted in Fashion Magazine, and been a guest on That Badass Podcast among others.
