    254 - Diving into Diversity & Growth with Venise Dixon of Indulgence Health

    Welcome back to another episode of the Scaling Wellness podcast!
     
    Today, we're joined by Venise Dixon. Venise is the owner and founder of Indulgence Health, a boutique wellness practice in Maryland. After a career in engineering, Venise recognized the lack of representation for Black communities in the wellness industry. She trained in massage therapy and started a mobile business in 2007, later expanding into a multidisciplinary wellness oasis in 2014. 
     
    Indulgence Health offers a range of services, including massage, yoga, acupuncture, counseling, and skincare, providing holistic healing experiences. Venise's vision is to create a space of representation and inclusivity for underserved communities, offering services that provide relief from pain, depression, and anxiety.
     
    We delve into:
    Representation Matters: Delve into the significance of representation in the wellness industry, particularly for black communities, and the impact of creating safe spaces for all individuals to access holistic care.
     
    Navigating Growth: Hear Venise's insights on scaling her business, from making strategic hires to cultivating a diverse team of practitioners aligned with her vision.
     
    The Role of Business Coaching: Venise emphasizes the value of having a business coach to navigate entrepreneurship. Coaching provided guidance, accountability, and support, helping them overcome challenges and achieve their goals.
     
    Managing Growth and Delegating Responsibilities: Venise described her experiences of relinquishing responsibilities, like bookkeeping, and the benefits of seeking specialized expertise to streamline operations.
     
    Navigating Financial Matters: Venise’s shift from fear-based decision-making to a more confident and strategic approach, as well as the importance of seeking knowledgeable professionals, such as CFOs and tax advisors, to support financial management.

The Podcast for those who want to grow their Massage Business!

I started listening to Scaling Wellness after a colleague and fellow massage business owner/massage therapist recommended it to me. I immediately knew that DJ was going in the direction that I wanted to go into with my business from his podcast. There is a wide range of subjects that he talks about with all his guests that will have me re-listening to each show so I can jot down what I have learned. If you want to grow and be up-to-date with what massage therapy business owners are doing you will not go wrong with The Scaling Wellness podcast. Highly recommend!

Btw - I loved his podcast so much I ended up working with DJ one on one! He’s amazing and I also highly recommend him for his other services.

DJ does the research so you don’t have to!

Scaling Wellness has been so helpful when it comes to my massage business. From starting out as a solo to opening a 4 treatment room massage practice, DJ has had so much valuable info for each step in my process. It’s so great to hear from other wellness professionals to see how they run and scale their practices too! You won’t find another wellness practice podcast with this kind of research put into it!
