Business Impact Award

What motivated you to start your business? Why are you passionate about what you do?

Growing up I always knew I wanted to be an entrepreneur as my father, Jerry, has run his company for over 30 years. He has a very inspiring story and has always given my sister and I the confidence to believe in ourselves. I’ve had an egg and peanut allergy my entire life, so when I was younger breakfast was quite limited. I enjoyed making smoothies at a young age and felt that it was my way to get creative. Unfortunately, in 2014, my mother was diagnosed with terminal cancer. During her battle with cancer we were introduced to a naturopath who opened my eyes to the power of real food and superfood healing. After making smoothies for my mom, other people started requesting them as well. With my entrepreneurial mindset I saw an opportunity to educate my community and offer healthy products to fuel them to achieve their best. Purpose is named after my late mother, Devi Ralla, for the way that she lived a Purpose driven life. My mother chose happiness and this radiated to everyone around her. She taught us to appreciate the small things in life and be grateful for what you have because when you’re able to learn this you will become happier. She was a run leader and an educational assistant, she brought her passion and energy to both and was able to positively impact so many lives. We exist to carry on her legacy. My vision is for Purpose Smoothie Co to be fuelling Canadians to their best lives with ten locations across the country in the next ten years. It’s inspiring to see the impact we’ve had on our community and it’s something I want people across the country to experience. I see Purpose as a lifestyle brand, where we will continue to educate on how to live a purposeful life. We are currently doing this through the Living With Purpose Podcast as well as our social media, blogs and website. Through these avenues as well as new products and locations, we will continue to fuel Canadians to live with purpose, and inspire people to learn, grow and adapt.

Why do you deserve to win the Business Impact award?

We deserve to win this award because we operate from the heart with the goal of inspiring our community to prioritize their health and happiness. One of our favourite quotes is "The effect you have on others is the most valuable currency there is." We strongly believe that we have positively impacted the lives of a lot of people in our community. Whether it's nourishing food to fuel them to achieving their best, encouraging them to attend our Move With Purpose events or a podcast that educates them on the importance of sleep, the goal always remains the same, to prioritize your health and happiness. We demonstrate this in our day to day lives and are trying our best to get as many people as possible to do the same. We have videos with customer feedback and event feedback that I would love to share but they are too big. I strongly encourage you to watch some of our instagram reels on our Purpose Smoothie Co page, to get a better idea of the impact we are having on our community and what they have to say about it. Thank you for taking the time to review our nomination and I hope that I get the opportunity to present to the judges again :)
