Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in health and wellness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Zachary Hum, owner of Zachary Hum Physiotherapy, located in Vancouver, BC, Canada.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
We are a physiotherapy business that helps people struggling to find a solution to their aches and pains. We provide a natural solution to treat the cause and prevent it from coming back. People become more active while no longer relying on pain killers to get through their day.
We utilize a holistic approach that focuses on the mind and the whole body through the use of innovative therapies, hands-on techniques, and movement to restore people’s bodies to better form.
Tell us about yourself
My name is Zachary, and I moved to British Columbia in 2021. My passion for the human body and wellness started when I was a kid. I grew up in a family of physiotherapists, and I always loved being active and playing sports, but this passion came with all sorts of injuries. Going through a wide range of injuries (mild to severe) helped me relate to and understand the complexity of the human body and the challenges faced by individuals suffering from persistent pain. Because of this understanding, I seek to provide hope and healing for my clients.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
Being able to help people break the cycle of chronic pain (that has lasted for years) by finding the root cause of their condition. And helping individuals who have tried many therapies with minimal success to return to the quality of life they hoped for.
What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
Having the confidence that the service you provide is of value and the courage to take risks in your business as a young entrepreneur.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- Never underestimate the importance of a first impression and customer service. Remember, it is easier to retain a client than find a new one.
- Find something that makes your business/product unique and figure out ways to go one step further than your competition.
- Don’t be afraid to ask for recommendations/referrals to your business. People who believe in your product are always willing to help.
