Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in health and wellness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Ted Cole, Founder of The Cole Center for Healing, located in West Chester, OH, USA.

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

I'm a physician specializing in Integrative Medicine, Family Practice, and Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy. I see people of all ages and conditions, most of whom are looking for ways to become healthier.

Tell us about yourself

I was cursed with a curious mind. If someone is ill or doesn't feel well, my question is always: Why? What is causing these symptoms? My goal is to find the cause of the person's condition and reverse it, with the overall goal of becoming as healthy as possible. I am grateful that I'm able to be part of someone's journey toward good health.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

I started my business from scratch over 33 years ago with myself as the only doctor. I've been able to grow and develop the business despite all of the rules and regulations that impact us.

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

Strategy, planning, government, insurances, and dealing with employees. 

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

  1. Plan like crazy.
  2. It will cost more than you think and take up more time than you plan.
  3. Enjoy the process!

Where can people find you and your business?
