How’s business? It’s been great, growing each week. We opened this location for a few reasons; we have a lot of business from this area, researched several area’s in the region for a new location and felt this would be home for us.
One thing I wish everyone knew about this business: The technology we brought to this county. We provide much more than neck and back pain relief, we go beyond the traditional chiropractic techniques. A complete review of your body can be done, analyzing and identifying key problem areas. We also provide nutritional and wellness care.
Something you offer that a customer won’t find elsewhere: The Ritz, 5 Star, Experience! We want this to be more than a traditional experience and greatly value customer service. We have a no wait policy and want everyone’s experience to be fun.
Advice to young entrepreneurs: Don’t give up, don’t get discouraged. Set goals and stay goal driven. The energy you put into the work comes full circle.
My first job: Working at the box office of my hometown movie theatre. It was great because I sold tickets and then caught up on homework. I loved it.
Your role model (in business or in life generally): In life, both of my parents. The morals and values they instilled on my brother and me. In Business, I look up to Richard Berkowitz and Dr. Sarah Merrison-McEntire.
The key to a successful business: 1. Be professional. 2. Treat people courteously. Always give the 5 star service and experience because that’s what people enjoy.
