Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in health and wellness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Dr. Dominika Hertsberg, Co-Founder and Co-Owner of Balanced Flow Wellness, located in Chicago, IL, USA.

What's your business, and who are your customers?

I own Balanced Flow Wellness, a health optimization medical wellness clinic. My customers are people who want to be the healthiest versions of themselves regardless of their age or ability. We offer hi-tech workouts that minimize time and maximize performance to gain muscle and lose fat, bio-identical hormone therapy, and mind-body and nutrition plans.

Tell us about yourself

I started my clinic in 2013 with a mission to change how healthcare is done in this country. The current healthcare model doesn't put enough emphasis on prevention and health optimization but is rather reactive. Things are slowly changing, and my company is a big part of this change. My motto is "leave every place and every person better than you found them."

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

My team. Everyone who works here is very well-trained, compassionate, and passionate about the work they do. We all change the lives of our clients every day, and that is something to be proud of.

What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?

Innovation is one of the most fun yet also the most challenging parts of being a business owner. You always have to be on the lookout for new science, new equipment, and a better way to serve your clients. The moment you feel comfortable is the moment you need to change and innovate.

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

  1. Find a mentor.
  2. Have a great business partner.
  3. Be comfortable with being uncomfortable.
