Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in health & wellness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Nina Elliott, Founder of Harmonizing Wellness Institute, located in Colorado Springs, CO, USA.

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

I help people get out of chronic pain. I love working with people who have tried everything and are tired of the conventional medical model.

Tell us about yourself

I started working with holistic solutions to pain relief because I didn't like how the dentists and doctors treated my TMJ (jaw) pain. They gave me something to minimize damage to the body, but it did not solve the problem.

I found several solutions that treated the source of the pain, not just the symptoms, and I wanted to share those with my clients. I love solving problems and seeing how the fantastic body responds when it gets what it is crying out for.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

Starting over! I moved my practice from Baltimore, MD, to Colorado Springs, CO. Starting over from scratch took a lot of work! I love the focus on holistic health and wellness in Colorado. I am also proud to be able to help people on various levels, not just the physical sense pain is rarely just a physical issue.

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

One of the hardest things is doing everything you want to do! I want to share so much with my clients- it's hard to prioritize and make the time to get new offerings up and available.

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

  1. Be clear on what you offer and who you serve.
  2. Set clear priorities, and don't let things distract you from those.
  3. Get systems & support as soon as you can!

Where can people find you and your business?
