What was the best business advice you ever received?
Never miss a local story.
Do what you love, make a difference with people, then the business and money will follow. If you do what you love and you do good work, the rest will take care of itself.
If you could choose another profession, what would it be?
Some form of sales. Sales is about everybody's business. Wether you're plumber, physician, whatever, there are always people interested in what you do and what kind of services you provide. It's about the least costly and most effective way to let people, who are already interested in the services, know that we are available to provide these services.
What is the biggest risk you've taken in your career?
Moving to an area where I did not know anybody and starting this business by myself. I started as a sole provider and now we have eight therapists, two full time and two part-time office staff. It has been a great thing.
If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you start?
I would start right here in North America. There are so many things that I haven't seen here yet. And then after that to Australia and New Zealand.
