We Are Moving...
This months blog is going to be a little different. Since we are moving the office, and it has given me an opportunity to walk down memory lane a bit. A mere 2 years ago, I decided to open the clinic in Salem. I had been in practice for 10 years already but this was my FIRST time branching out completely alone. I actually first opened Bella Acupuncture in 2011, when I was fresh out of Acupuncture School. I was “running” the business then but… I was subletting space in a Wellness Center with many other practitioners. We shared the treatment rooms (and sometimes the patients) but it was never actually my space to develop and grow as I saw fit.
Since then I had worked in a few other clinics as someone else’s employee. I gained so much experience and wisdom doing that but it was still NOT MINE.
Fast forward to 2021 when I finally did it. I made something mine. And like many first time (true) business owners, I have made mistakes. I have changed my mind. I have done things I was SURE would work but didn’t. There have been many bumps in the road and I am sure there will be many more. It has been challenging but these last 2 years have been the most fulfilling of my life. It gave me to opportunity to connect with and impact so many new people. I am so happy to be doing what I love in a community that I love. I am truly thankful for YOU!
The new clinic location is going to give me, and us, another fresh start. There will likely be more changes coming. I hope to hire some staff members soon. Learning to navigate a bigger space will have its challenges. We will have growing pains. But, we will also have breakthroughs. Throughout all that is to come, I promise I will always do my best to help you. That will never change.
