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

Hello. My name is Dr. Ilya Skolnikoff, and I am the award-winning international speaker and best-selling author of The Skolnikoff Method, New Medicine For A New You. My 700-page book goes over both causes of Autoimmune Disease, Thyroid Disease, Mood Disorders, Hormone Imbalance, and Leaky Gut, as well as the solutions to these chronic inflammatory, metabolic conditions. You can discover more about my story and health journey with cystic acne and six years of mold exposure in the book.

Tell us about yourself

I am a Diplomate of The International Board of Applied Kinesiology. This means that I am a specialist in diagnosing the underlying causes of people's health concerns and then treating the cause of the thing that caused the condition. We have the most advanced therapies in the world of modern therapeutics at our fingertips. Every day we see people with Hashimoto's and Grave's Disease able to get off of their medications and no longer have symptoms. All of their symptoms go away. We help most people with most conditions mostly quickly by addressing the underlying causes of their symptoms. By combining herbs, homeopathy, nutrition, flower essences, Professional Applied Kinesiology, Total Body Modification, Neuro Emotional Technique and other emotional therapies, chiropractic, acupuncture, Traditional Chinese Medicine, naturopathy, cranial sacral therapy, and a wide variety of other therapies, we are able to see spectacular results. We have a special language to talk to the bodies of our patients, and that language is called The Skolnikoff Method.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

I am the award-winning international speaker and best-selling author of The Skolnikoff Method, and I make regular appearances on local TV to discuss health-related matters.

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

You have to make more money than you spend. The needs of the business are often different than your needs or the needs of your patients.

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

  1. Get Started.
  2. Focus on your business and its growth and marketing, and revenue.
  3. Quitting is not an option. Never give up. However, you may choose to sell your business and build another one.
