Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in health and wellness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Dr. Connie Cheung, Founder of Alkaline Method™, located in Suwanee, GA, USA.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
I help people struggling with pesky symptoms, such as bloating, gas, constipation, diarrhea, fatigue, sluggishness, foggy brain, and weight gain, heal their gut so that they can get rid of their symptoms for good and look and feel their best.
Tell us about yourself
I'm a Physical Therapist, Registered Dietitian, Functional Medicine Practitioner, and Yoga Teacher. I have over 24 years of clinical experience in both the conventional and holistic medical industries. Also, I've been an autoimmune patient for over 24 years. All of this has allowed me to create a truly integrative approach that empowers clients to heal from the inside out by first healing their gut. I believe our current medical system is "broken," so I felt compelled to help as many people as possible regain their health for longevity and wellness.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
Pivoting my business through Covid from brick and mortar to online, and then reorganizing my business by getting rid of "B level" employees and team members that were negatively impacting the business.
What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
Some of the challenging things about being a business owner are the responsibility and leadership that comes with it.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- Just get started and implement your ideas even when you don't feel "ready," and test them to see how your target audience responds.
- Create a vision for your business so that you can align all aspects of the business with your vision.
- Join a mastermind or surround yourself with other entrepreneurs so that you can gain accountability and support.
