This week marks 5 years since Danielle Berger, D.C opened ChiroWay of Duluth, a milestone breached in what seems like a blink of time..
According to the Small Business Administration (SBA) Office of Advocacy’s 2018 Frequently Asked Questions, roughly 80% of small businesses survive the first year. … Only about 50% of small businesses survive passed the five-year mark.
With not only surviving, but thriving in business-we went ahead and asked Danielle Berger, DC owner and Chiropractor of ChiroWay Duluth a couple questions looking back on her past five years in business and practice.
Before attaining her Doctorate of Chiropractic from Northwestern Health Sciences University, Berger grew up in Foxboro, where she was first introduced to her love of chiropractic. Berger nannied for the family of a local chiropractor where she witnessed, and personally experienced the life changing impact of spinal adjustments.
Regarding her decision to collaborate with Chiroway, Danielle stated “I started ChiroWay of Duluth because I wanted to own my own practice, but I also didn’t want to go into practice all on my own, I wanted some guidance. Owning a franchise location has meant I’ve been able to make my practice my own all while having a team of chiropractors to work with and give direction as I needed it.”
Danielle, cites her biggest professional accomplishment in this half decade as having continued her education with the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association, “ICPA” and “expanding the practice member base that I have, and using the interactions I’ve been through with clients to better serve individuals coming in seeking care.”
The ICPA’s mission is to establish and advance the chiropractic family lifestyle. The mission at ICPA and ChiroWay are shared with similar values that promote regular chiropractic for infants, children and adults to express a higher quality of life.
Danielle, who proudly became a new mother this last December, states her high point in personal achievements since opening her practice include the birth of her daughter, which comes with her capacity and freedom to spend several weeks with her new family of three.
When asked what comes to mind about this achievement of time, Danielle responded “ I think about all of the people I’ve met and cared for over the last five years and it makes me so happy to know I’ve helped the amount of people that I have. Many of them have become friends and feel like family to me.”
