Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in health and wellness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Dr. Tenesha Wards, Owner of Infinity Wellness Center, located in Austin, TX, USA.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
I am the Founder and Medical Director of Infinity Wellness Center, which supports the top 5% of most difficult cases that are often written off by other doctors. I founded The Infinity Way™ program to uncover and correct the root cause of chronic fatigue and other patient symptoms. The Infinity Way™ custom care plans, followed by my whole team, meet the unique needs of individual patients and help them achieve their wellness goals. I established my practice with science-backed, holistic principles that support whole-body health.
Tell us about yourself
I found myself in functional medicine after my own personal struggles of suffering from misdiagnosed Lyme disease at age 15 and later in life, post-natal Epstein Barr Virus, Autoimmune Thyroiditis/Hashimoto's Disease. I have learned how to treat the person and not the symptoms of the disease. After being failed by the traditional medical system, I learned holistic health and used nutrition to heal myself.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
Ohhh, probably purchasing a 1965 Farmhouse in South Austin and turning it into a relaxed, spa-like healing center for our patients to thrive and heal in.
What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?
The ups and downs of entrepreneurship and not allowing it to affect all aspects of my life. After 17 years, I am still learning to ride that wave.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- Make sure you know your why.
- When times are tough, take time to reconnect with your why.
- Learn to surf the waves of the ups and downs and know it's all temporary.
