Can you describe your business?

We have a Chiropractic clinic – working with families to ensure their nervous system is functioning optimally and thus allowing the body to stay relaxed and strong. Our mission is to build a happy, healthy, thriving community.

Why did you start your own business?

When we moved back to Ireland, I had an associate position in another clinic. My own business almost started by accident on the other two days, when family and friends wanted help with their health. I was able to start my business in my Mums centre – The Angel Sanctuary, where clients were coming to get well and stay well, our two businesses work well together. Through word of mouth the number of clients grew steadily. I realised I wanted to grow my own business and started working harder on the marketing side especially with networking and social media. In the last year I have expanded to working with horses also, this has had its own set of challenges but as with my Chiropractic business it is growing steadily with word of mouth.

What are the best things about running your own business?

Flexibility – you can have time off when you need to. Making your own hours that you would like to work that can fit around family life.

What are the main challenges facing the business?

At the beginning the main challenge was getting used to fluctuating pay and not knowing quite how much you would be taking home each month. The main challenge at the moment is to trying to get new clients scheduled in without waiting too long.

What advice would you give to someone starting a business?

To go for it! It can be hard at the start but with the right idea, a bit of work and patience you can create a following and you can make it successful.

Can you describe your experience of running a business in three words or less?

Challenging, exciting, rewarding
