Like many health entrepreneurs, I started with a dream. I wanted to help people in their pursuit of optimum health – where they felt strong and valued. But after running my business for twenty years, even with thousands of clients and a loyal staff, I felt tired, burned out, and unsure if my business would make it another 20 years. Rather than quit, I went on an intense quest, including more education, research and testing, to prove my company’s viability and identify the key components of successful healthcare practices—and in Wellness Incorporated I share these essential elements so your own business can prosper.
