Telehealth physiotherapy...I specialize in humans.
Tell us about yourself
I began to feel that I could do better from the business and customer service side of things if I went out on my own. Building from the ground up and staying connected with my patients keeps me motivated. I started treating in-person and, more recently, have morphed into a strict telehealth practitioner with the business.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
Staying afloat for 11+ years and relying only on word-of-mouth marketing.
What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
You never leave the office. It goes with you 24/7, almost.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- Start with your why (cliché nowadays, but true)
- Do your research (on your market, brand, competitors, best practices, etc.)
- Remember it's about relationships and integrity (this will let you sleep at night)
Is there anything else you'd like to share?
