Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in health and wellness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Allison Capps, Founder of Belle Therapy + Wellness, located in Knoxville, TN, USA.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
Belle Therapy + Wellness offers concierge physical therapy services focusing on women's health. I bring pelvic floor physical therapy rehabilitation into the comfort of your home for more personalized, private, and convenient care. I treat women across the age spectrum but specialize in pregnancy, postpartum, and peri-menopausal health.
Tell us about yourself
After the birth of my first child, my son Liam, I found myself very lost and confused regarding my physical health. Prior to my pregnancy, I was running, weight lifting, hiking, or some form of physical activity every day, and then post-pregnancy, I was barely able to walk in my kitchen without pain or shortness of breath. I was also a physical therapist, and even I was scared about how to rehabilitate myself. This is what inspired me to seek pelvic health education and training so I can help all women feel the same as I did!
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
My biggest accomplishment as a business owner would be that I was the first mobile cash-based physical therapist in Knoxville, TN. I am not the type of individual to "take risks," so doing something this new was a huge step for me as a person and business owner!
What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?
The hardest part of being a business owner is that work always comes home with you, and the "To-Do" list is never-ending. This brings the personal growth challenge of how to achieve the work-life balance you desire and how to nourish your family and friends while also growing a new business.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- Just do it. There is no perfect time to start! The only regret I have is the time I lost twiddling my thumbs.
- If you don't know the answer to a question, then FIND someone who does. Find a real human being, and do not waste your hours Googling or YouTubing how to do something.
- Always be in tune with your mission or "Why." Every decision, every team member, and every opportunity should fully support and be in line with your mission or "Why."
