Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in health and wellness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Daniel Lopez, Co-Owner of Inspire Osteopathy Denver, located in Denver, CO, USA.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
My wife and I own Inspire Osteopathy Denver. We provide hands-on osteopathic treatment to patients. We can see patients of all ages for many issues, but most commonly have patients who seek us out for things like neck pain, back pain, low back pain, sciatica, and headaches. We also have many patients who come to us for TMJ dysfunctions, tongue ties, and airway-related problems.
Tell us about yourself
I am an osteopathic physician or a DO. Growing up with a lot of pain and discomfort, I dedicated my life to finding real solutions for myself and for my patients. Eventually, I found answers but realized most of what people do to seek relief doesn't work or doesn't work well.
We opened up our practice with a passion for helping people find real solutions and get relief. I'm motivated each day by seeing patients walking out of the office feeling much better than when they came in. I'm also motivated by the deeper understanding of the human body I get from difficult cases.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
We opened up a successful cash-based practice where we've been busy since the first day. Part of that was from the hard work we put in before opening up our practice and building trust and value with patients and referral sources.
What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?
The hardest thing in our practice is that our income is dependent on us being in the office. If we go on vacation, there is no income coming into the practice. To solve that, we have been working on building up passive sources of income through online courses and an e-commerce shop to help us have other sources of income.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- Know what you want to accomplish with your business.
- Keep things simple.
- Be creative with ways to help you achieve your goals.
