Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in health and wellness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Shoaib Nathani, co-founder and Vice-President of Rehab2Go, located in Toronto, ON, Canada.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
The Canadian population is an aging population, and getting to see a health care provider becomes a challenge when injuries or lack of mobility make it difficult to leave the house. Furthermore, most Canadians who are fully mobile spend over an hour getting to work. We live hectic lives leaving very little time for our own health.
Rehab2Go's vision is to be an innovative health community in which patients achieve their goals for rehabilitation and well-being in locations that are accessible to their needs. We aspire to be trusted by patients and clinicians as the leading company for healthcare services. Our mission is to provide quality rehabilitation services at a time and location that meets the needs of our patients.
Tell us about yourself
I graduated from Physiotherapy school in India. In India, a physiotherapist's main income is through in-home physiotherapy. After moving to Canada, I researched for In-home Rehab services, but there were not any serious companies out there providing such services. I saw this as an opportunity, and along with my business partner, we founded Rehab2go.
The sense that we are trying to bring something new to the market, which will help consumers and will make access to healthcare more convenient, motivates us every day.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
My biggest accomplishment as a business owner is patient satisfaction and seeing our dream come to reality.
What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
Management is a fun part of being a business owner, but it is challenging and hard as well.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- Trust yourself, and execute your plan.
- Hard work and trust the process.
- Optimistic and be open to learning and listening to your critics.
