Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in health and wellness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Dr. Franchell Hamilton, Founder of Neuroswitch Weight Loss, located in Argyle, TX, USA.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
My business is all about Weight Loss. I serve almost everyone, such as patients with bariatric surgery, people who want to lose weight and become healthier, obese patients, etc.
Tell us about yourself
I realized after medical school that current treatments for weight loss and being healthy for the long term were not working and sustainable. I love helping people, freeing them from feeling frustrated, ashamed, and guilty, and giving them their life back.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
Making people healthier, happier, and able to live life to the fullest again.
What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
Being unable to accommodate everyone and everyone's needs. Having to split my time running a business and also trying to impact people's lives.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- Have a passion for and love what you do, and it will not feel like work.
- Be innovative and curious about what you can do to make things better.
- When you find good staff who love their job, pay them and keep them so they can grow with you.
Is there anything else you'd like to share?
Learning and developing my own business has been both fun as well as can be stressful, but the fun usually overtakes the stress. You know you are doing what you were meant to do when it does not feel like work but a calling, and therefore you do not really get tired. As long as I keep my focus on the benefit my business will bring to them, I know I will always be doing the right thing.
