Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in health and wellness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Andrew Rosenstock, Founder of Rolfing In Boston, located in Boston, MA, USA.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
What if I told you that by combining the knowledge and expertise of a physical therapist, a yoga therapist, a trauma worker, a neuroscientist, and an existential philosopher, you could access a wealth of insights and solutions for nearly any mind-body-related issue you may be experiencing? That's exactly what you'll get with me, Andrew Rosenstock – a seasoned professional who possesses a comprehensive understanding of the intricate workings of the human mind and body. You'll get not just that, but you'll get someone who wants to help you live a more comfortable and easeful life. That's my business, helping people. My customers are people who feel stuck in some way. Maybe they had an injury and can't get past it. Maybe they had an old story that has become a part of their narrative. Whatever is keeping people from being where they want to be, I work to help them move forward and beyond.
Tell us about yourself
I've always been a curious person. This curiosity has led me through a path of continual learning and refining. While I originally got on this path as a side hobby from my previous work in IT, eventually, this work took over, and it fuels me every day. I am motivated by the faces and reactions when something tiny I do has a huge ripple effect on people, and they become a little more aware and empowered. Helping people take more ownership and control of their lives is just the best!!
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
So many! I've met many of my celebrity heroes, and getting to help them is pretty amazing. But also working with children with depression and helping them find other ways of seeing and being in this world is also so rewarding. Each day feels like an accomplishment when I go home after giving and doing all that I can do for my clients.
What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?
Marketing and also doing the other roles of which I am not trained for. I would love a world where I can just go in and do what I am good at and then go home... but that is not the way it currently works. Maybe one day. :)
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
And with that, keep a good attitude. It will likely take time and not be easy. But if you believe and you want to help make a difference, it will be worth it.
