Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in health and wellness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Joshua Ritchie, founder of Forward Chiropractic & Wellness, located in Fort Worth, TX, USA.

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

My business is Forward Chiropractic & Wellness. I help a broad group of people, from those who are young to those who are older, the super active athlete, and the weekend warriors. We provide chiropractic care, rehab exercises, and nutrition services for our patients. Our goal is to help put an end to pain, prevent pain, and get our patients back doing what they love and keep moving forward.

Tell us about yourself

I first found chiropractic when I was in middle/high school; playing multiple sports had taken its toll on my body. I was feeling off and not achieving my best results after trying just to ignore it and playing through it. I found chiropractic which helped me get out of pain and improved my performance on the field. Ever since then, I have been a firm believer in the benefits of chiropractic care. For each patient that walks through the door, my goal is to help them improve their health.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

The biggest accomplishments as a business owner are when patients say,” I can do ___ now,” “I have not been able to ___ in years,” or “I do not have any pain anymore.” When I hear statements like this, it fuels my drive and desire to help more people in my community.

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

One of the hardest things about being a business owner has been the unknown. Will patients keep coming back? Am I positioning the business in the right direction to help it grow? Am I taking the correct steps for my business? With each new challenge comes a chance for growth and learning experiences.

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

  1. Do not be afraid to try a bunch of different things and find out what works best for you.
  2. Have a passion for what you do.
  3. Take every day as a learning experience, which will help make your tomorrow better.

Is there anything else you'd like to share?

Learn from other businesses, talk with other local businesses that are in similar spaces as you and ones that are different. Pick their brains about what works for them and see if anything can work for your business. If nothing else, that gives you a person to network with.
