Tell us about yourself

I open Acu Time Wellness in Palm Beach Gardens with the idea to offer the residents of this beautiful city zen, clean and welcoming place to recover from illness and body regain function from trauma. I do this every day using the wisdom of Traditional Chinese Medicine. My main focus as an Acupuncture Physician is to find alternative treatments, nutritional support, and herbal medicine that treat the root of the illness and best benefit my patients. Nothing is more motivating than seeing someone get well.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

My small business provides taxes for my city and alternative medicine to my community, and as a personal goal is a very rewarding experience. My biggest accomplishment has been to organize my week in a way that the business needs do not interfere with my patient's needs.

What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?

Wearing many hats. As a business, I find myself in many roles, marketer, CPA, computer genius, HR, etc. For me, one of the hardest things is Social Media marketing; I am very good at talking to people one-on-one and social media feels like talking to a group of millions; this is the hardest for me.

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

  1. Find who is your business allies (people that will help you grow).
  2. Treat your employees like your business depends on them (it does).
  3. Be kind to yourself.

Is there anything else you'd like to share?
