Building a business is not easy because there are so many skills, talents and other factors that impact your success. There are challenges that impede you and most of them are not external factors. Dr. Carri Drzyzga shares how a “true” coach has changed her trajectory of her business. Discover why Dr. Carri got a coach and see what that can do for you. Join me in the interview on Leaders in the Trenches.
Dr. Carri’s Target Audience: Dr. Carri’s target market is people in their 40s – 60s who are interested in gaining better health, in particular women who are suffering from fatigue.
Dr. Carri Drzyzga is a chiropractor and naturopathic doctor who holds two degrees in these disciplines. She is known as the functional medicine doctor. In her practice she helps her patients find the root cause of their health problems or imbalances. Once the problem or problems are found, she treats them with natural medicine.
And those natural medicines or treatments include diet changes, herbs, vitamins, minerals, exercise and stress management. These are used to get the body back up and running. Her methods help patients feel normal again with a higher level of health. She looks at the body as a whole.

On this show, Dr. Carri talks about functional medicine and her methods to treat common problems such as fatigue, hormonal imbalances and digestive upsets. She briefly explains what functional medicine is and how it helps the body. Fatigue and other bodily problems are quite common in people who work in desk jobs staring at their computer screen for most of the workday.
For such people, visiting chiropractors and receiving therapy is one way to solve their problems. There might be thousands of chiropractors, but Dr. Carri is quite unique because of her two degrees and expertise in chiropractic and naturopathic medicine. She set out to be unique in order to fill the gap of people not getting cared in these areas.

Another step that has helped her expand her unique offerings in her practice was getting a business coach. In school she was taught how to help patients, but not how to run a business. Having a business coach has provided her with all the help she needs. She feels that she is starting from scratch after obtaining a second degree and expanding her service area, she is still in the trenches but gaining ground fast!
