Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in health and wellness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Benoit Philippe, president of Pose Osteopathie The Sante Inc., located in Montréal, QC, Canada.

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

We are a multi-professional health clinic that has a tea house on the from to welcome our clients and take a moment off before or after the session. You can also come just for the tea experience in our calm and relaxing place.

Tell us about yourself

I'm an osteopath, so my main focus is to help people improve their day, life, or habits. The tea house came into my mind because waiting rooms are boring and don t reflect the quality of the clinics most of the time. I wanted to change that, to give a calm, beautiful, and relaxing place right at the place's entrance.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

To see people's faces when they come in for the first time. The "whaou" effect.

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

COVID was the biggest problem with the closes, restrictions, and people not coming out. But I will say that a bad landlord comes right after.

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

Be very specific on the Bails!!! Let people help you and try to keep a distance from your business to know where you are going.

Where can people find you and your business?
