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

I was privileged to spend 35 years learning with some of the most renowned teachers of our time in different locations around the world, including Africa, Saudi Arabia, and America. After years of traveling, seeking, studying, and working as a Family nurse practitioner at various hospitals and organizations, medical Practioner and Doctor of Nursing Practice, I came to believe humans are capable of more than traditional, conventional methods offer. I received my Master’s in Nursing science as a family nurse practitioner from Wagner college and my Doctoral Degree. In 2008, I founded Aging Well Family recognizes and embraces the body’s innate ability to self-repair and knows to employ self-healing mechanisms with the power of the mind.

I am lucky enough to travel extensively as a motivational speaker, corporate trainer, and workshop leader and serve on several non-profit organizations as a board member. My passion and driving force are enabling people and organizations to make a positive impact on our world.

Tell us about yourself

My name is Dr. Azza Ezzat, DNP, RN, FNP-BC; despite not being a native Staten Islander, I understand the needs and concerns of patients with culture-specific values and needs. I recognize and embrace the body’s innate ability to self-repair and know how to employ self-healing mechanisms with the power of the mind. I am aware of how thoughts and feelings can alter the body’s physiology. I also understand the negative impact of fear, anxiety, pessimism, and depression on the body. My mission is to create healthy living in long-term care facilities and empower patients and their families to play a more active role in the treatment plan to achieve the goal of treatment.

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

  1. One of the most important concepts I learned was that the amount of time and effort is the same whether you build a multi-million-dollar business or run a small taco stand on the sidewalk. The only thing standing between you and your dreams is your confidence and belief in yourself!
  2. There is no secret, one way! Every overnight success, every lottery ticket, and without a shadow of a doubt, every successful business has an entire narrative of the blood, sweat, and tears that lead to that moment of success! You must learn, advance, and place conscious energy and resource to advance and achieve your goal!
  3. There are balances and steps to achieving your goals successfully without sacrificing your relationships, family, or health. No one can do it alone! The greater your team of mentors, professional coaches, administrators, trusted employees, and partners, the greater your success.
