Well-Being can be defined as building a life of vitality, purpose, resilience and engagement.
From fitness and food producers to home builders and app creators, countless companies and organizations strive to improve well-being for individuals, organizations and large groups of society. We segment ventures by the type of well-being they provide to their customers and have identified 6 areas of the business of well-being:
Emotional/Spiritual | Financial | Physical | Place-Based | Occupational | Social
