Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in health and wellness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Anita Haque, founder of Haque Chiropractic, Inc., located in Livermore, CA, USA.

What's your business, and who are your customers?

I am a chiropractor by trade, but my business is a natural health and wellness facility. We provide natural pain relief with rehabilitative chiropractic care, physical therapy, therapeutic exercise, and Cryoskin slimming and toning treatments. Our patients are those who are looking to find the CAUSE of their aches and pains and address that vs. covering up symptoms. We provide care that encompasses the joint alignment, muscles, and ligaments so that there is a more stable approach to feeling better and sitting up taller. We also offer nutritional programs that are natural and address weight issues, hormones, natural slimming, and toning for a lifting of the skin. We are all about feeling and looking better NATURALLY!

Tell us about yourself

Born and raised in Toronto, Canada, I knew I wanted to be in the healthcare field from a child, except I didn't want to push medications, so I decided to pursue my education by becoming a Doctor of Chiropractic. After graduating Magnum Cum Lade at Cleveland Chiropractic College Los Angeles in 2003, I moved to the San Francisco Bay Area. I started my practice at the ripe age of 24 years old. From humble beginnings of staying in my office to save on rent, I grew my practice to winning Best Chiropractor in my town for the last 17 years in a row.

I began my practice out of college because, as a small framed, young female in a male-driven profession, I wanted to make my own rules. I had a vision of a beautiful spa-like office to allow people to come in and feel at ease and feel uplifted with each visit, and I knew that I needed to create that on my own. Eighteen years later, I am honored to have grown my practice to the level that it now provides sports injury care, muscle therapies, exercise, nutrition, and now Cryoskin non-invasive slimming and toning therapies. Every day I hear a patient tell me how much better they are feeling, how much more movement they are experiencing, and how much the quality of their lives have improved by increased sleep, vitality, and motion. I am inspired to push further and provide MORE value to my community. I am now mentoring and coaching new Doctors. I am the chair of the Women's Committee for the California Chiropractic Association.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

My biggest accomplishment as a business owner is sustaining my practice over the years through the pandemic and growing it to meet the needs of my community by providing them with natural health and wellness. My accomplishment is the consistency of impacting thousands in a positive way in a world where businesses often fail within a couple of years.

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

Keeping up with innovation and marketing. It is one thing to be great, but if no one knows about what you can do (marketing), then it is pointless. Having talent is only a part of the equation in a successful business. Knowing how to market yourself and innovate as the world changes are also key.

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

First, it is vital that you LOVE what you are doing/selling in your business, as it will keep you going on your toughest days. Secondly, being able to communicate and educate your value with effective marketing is mandatory. Finally, providing value to your customer that SERVES them in their life is key for a growing business.

Is there anything else you'd like to share?

Having my practice has allowed me to express my art of healing, make my own rules and provide the most incredible care to my patients and community. As tough as it has been at times, the intangible rewards have gone beyond the material, and it has been worth the 'blood, sweat, and tears over the years ;).
