Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in health and wellness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Martin Caron, co-founder of Caron Chiropractic Clinic, located in Saint Paul, MN, USA.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
We are a family chiropractic clinic located in St. Paul, MN. We have seven chiropractors and have been in business for over 30 years. We see various patients, from babies to the elderly, athletes to pregnant women. In addition to chiropractic services, we offer massage therapy, acupuncture, and nutritional counseling.
Tell us about yourself
I am the co-founder of the clinic and have been practicing for 31 years. I have thoroughly enjoyed being a chiropractor because it is challenging and rewarding to run a business that helps many people find relief from pain and improve their health.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
In addition to the rewards of practice, I have found a lot of satisfaction in being engaged with my professional peers. I was voted Minnesota's Chiropractor of the Year in 2003 by my states association peers.
What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
Separating the business side of our practice with the clinical side.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- As soon as you are able, hire a professional to run your accounting and have regular financial meetings.
- Don't let your mood follow the balance of your business checkbook.
- Train your employees well.
Is there anything else you'd like to share?
Running a small business is like pushing an apple cart uphill. Coasting doesn't work so well!!
