Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in health and wellness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Taylor Ann Drew, Co-Founder and COO of Aquarian Clinic, Inc., located in Tallahassee, FL, USA.

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

My name is Taylor Ann Drew, APRN, RYT 200; I am a nurse practitioner, yogini, and owner of Aquarian Clinic, Inc and CaliFlo Yoga Collective. Aquarian Clinic is a direct primary care practice with locations in Tallahassee and Jacksonville, Florida. We opened the clinic a year ago and have been beyond excited about our growth and positive response from the community. Direct primary care is a new model of medicine that offers primary care services for a low monthly subscription; think Netflix for healthcare! We focus on all aspects of primary care though we are passionate about focusing on mental health and overall wellbeing.

Tell us about yourself

I am originally from Florida; I attended the University of Florida and then Vanderbilt University for my Master's in Nursing. I lived in Colorado, California, and North Carolina before making my way back home to the community I know and love. I worked in the community health, surgical, and hospital settings before realizing that I wanted to be the change I wanted to see in the healthcare and wellness systems, so I decided to open CaliFlo Yoga; then, less than a year later, Aquarian Clinic. My six-year-old son, Nash, is my world. I want to show my son that I can be a mom and a boss lady, teaching him the sky is the limit to reach for the stars!

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

Watching my employees and patients grow and flourish! I LOVE being in leadership, it is truly a rewarding position to be in, and I am excited to wake up, "work," and help people every day.

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

Balance. One thing we learn in the practice of yoga is to balance (and I'm not talking about standing on your head). Every day I have to check-in and ensure that all of my cups are being filled. Creating a balance of mental, emotional, and physical energy is imperative for a healthy, functional life.

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

Know your goals, know yourself, and build a team!
