About Ducky Elko

Ducky Elko is a holistic tea expert and kombucha maker. She began brewing in the beginning of 2017 & decided to teach the process in the spring of 2017. 

When did you begin your business/ teaching career?
DE: I began brewing in the beginning of 2017 & decided to teach people everything I’ve been learning about the process in the spring of 2017.

Where did you get the inspiration for your art business brand?
DE: I got inspired to offer my holistic teas because of how good they taste & because of the health benefits.

What makes you want to teach/do your business?
DE: I love sharing knowledge that can benefit people & I like to encourage people to take very good care of themselves with nourishing foods & beverages.
For you how does yoga relate to wellness? ?
DE: I enjoy yoga because it’s more than exercise, it’s also meditation & breath work. I feel extremely nourished by yoga.
How do you stay healthy?
DE: I nourish myself with organic, healthy foods & beverages & I exercise & spend time in nature.
What do you feel is the most challenging aspect of your career?
DE: What I’ve found challenging with making my holistic teas is calculating costs. I enjoy making it so much, I kind of get lost when it comes to the numbers.

When you aren’t teaching classes what do you like to do?
DE: I spend almost all my time with my doggy, gravey boat. We hike, swim, ride bikes (she’s in the basket) & visit family & friends often. I’m also a hair stylist.

What is it that inspires you to keep going as entrepreneur?
DE: I just love sharing knowledge & gifts with people & learning from people as well.

What are you working on now?
DE: I’ve been experimenting with new flavors & also researching a ton in preparation for the upcoming classes I’ll be teaching! 🙂

What has been your best experience thus far in your business?
DE: What has been most rewarding is seeing how many people are interested in these healthy, probiotic teas. It’s seriously beautiful.

What advice do you have for others interested in pursuing their own business?
DE: Believe in yourself & be yourself

Is there anything else you’d like the readers to know?
DE: All of my holistic teas are made with so much love!!! 🙂
