What's your business, and who are your customers?
We are the Pioneers of Performance Medicine, focusing on optimizing Human Performance using a data-driven approach. Our clients come from all walks of life and are looking for an up-to-date and personalized approach to their health and wellness.
Tell us about yourself
I began working in the realm of regenerative medicine back in 2012 when no one really knew about it. I fell in love with this field because it harnesses the body’s innate ability to heal itself without the need for drugs or surgery. Since then, I have committed my life to this work and have never looked back. It has kept my clients happy because it continues to provide them with amazing results while keeping me excited and passionate. There are always actions to take and more to learn.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
My biggest accomplishment in this venture was learning how to be nimble and versatile in our changing health industry. Although building a new health brand at the beginning of the pandemic was risky, the rewards have been limitless.
What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?
The hardest thing noted in doing this kind of work is communicating the vision to my team and our clients. A lot of the stuff we do here is technical, and explaining it in simple terms was a challenge at first, but now it’s so much better. Applying analogies to explain health concepts in people’s lives has helped with that.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- Put words into actions daily.
- Listen to your team.
- Have fun.
