Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in health and wellness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Dr. Carly King, Naturopathic Doctor, based in Dundas, ON, Canada.

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

I'm a Naturopathic Doctor with a clinical focus on fertility, pregnancy, and pediatric health. I help families optimize their health to conceive, carry healthy pregnancies, and raise thriving children. I believe in a comprehensive, evidence-based approach to health care focusing on diet, lifestyle, and more natural interventions.

Tell us about yourself

There are so many gaps in health care that get overlooked in women's health, fertility, pregnancy, and pediatric care. Nutrition, exercise, sleep, and other lifestyle factors set the foundation for health yet are not typically addressed in medical appointments. There are so many simple changes that can be made that can make a profound difference in hormonal, fertility, and birth outcomes. I want to provide patients with accurate and up-to-date information so that they can feel confident in making the most informed health choices for their families.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

Establishing a thriving practice with word-of-mouth referrals only
with strong community connections and many happy patients, I have been fortunate to build a successful practice without any advertising!

What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?

Time management and setting firm limits on work hours so that work doesn't overlap with personal/family time. It's too easy to work around the clock as a business owner!

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

  1. Don't wait until you are ready. There is never a good time. Start now.
  2. Show up authentically and be true to your values.
  3. Establish clear boundaries around the business to support your mental health.
