Ther­apy can turn into fam­ily affair

Rutherglen Reformer - - Business -

Be­cause Bowen ther­apy is rel­a­tively un­heard-of a lot of peo­ple aren’t aware of it, don’t know what to ex­pect and have tried var­i­ous other ther­a­pies that haven’t helped with their con­di­tion or prob­lem in the past. Of­ten they may ap­proach it with a de­gree of scep­ti­cism. How­ever, the re­sults speak for them­selves and my busi­ness has grown from rec­om­men­da­tions and word of mouth from clients. Of­ten I be­gin by treat­ing a baby for colic then treat the dad for a frozen shoul­der, then the aun­tie for sci­at­ica and it re­ally be­comes a fam­ily affair.

Have faith in your­self and your prod­uct. Be pre­pared to be fully com­mit­ted, put in long hours and work hard and how im­por­tant it is to have a good web­site and Face­book page. and worked and along­side my part­ner, raised a fam­ily here and made so many new friends and con­nec­tions since I moved to Ruther­glen and then Cam­bus­lang al­most 12 years ago. And now I am blessed to have started a busi­ness in a place that I love and have the sup­port of lo­cal peo­ple.

That if you work hard you can achieve your goals and to have faith in your­self and what you do.

My am­bi­tion is to have a thriv­ing, suc­cess­ful busi­ness with happy and pain-free clients. I hope that my busi­ness grows from strength to strength and in five years that Bowen ther­apy achieves the recog­ni­tion it de­serves.

Num­bers gameChar­tered ac­coun­tant Gwen Blair me for as­sis­tance be­cause I am close to where they live or work.“I love work­ing with peo­ple and help­ing them to achieve their busi­ness goals, whilst en­sur­ing that all the nec­es­sary com­pli­ance work is dealt with along the way.“I spend about half my week in the of­fice and the other half out and about meet­ing and speak­ing to clients.”Gwen in­sists on keep­ing up to date with her pro­fes­sional de­vel­op­ment in the ever-chang­ing ac­count­ing and tax sys­tems en­vi­ron­ment.“Be­ing your own boss brings with it a lot of flex­i­bil­ity but if you do not put in the ef­fort and hard work, you’ll have noth­ing to show for it,”she in­sisted.For any­one start­ing out in busi­ness Gwen’s top tips are: be or­gan­ised, plan your work­flow and stick to it; join lots of net­work­ing groups; and work hard but en­sure you have a good work-life balance and proper down­time to avoid burn­ing out.“I thor­oughly en­joy work­ing for my­self,”said Gwen, who has lived in Ruther­glen for 12 years.“I have al­ways had a pas­sion for num­bers and prob­lem solv­ing. My de­gree is in maths and physics so if I wasn’t an ac­coun­tant I would still want to be in­volved in some area of maths and sci­ence.”www.la­m­ont­blairca.co.uk
