It is Happening!

Once upon a time in 2011, this handsome man
became a doctor of chiropractics and got his start working in a local chiropractor's office.  
It has been fun to see him gain confidence, a busy schedule, and a loyal patient-base as he does what he loves.
However, we knew that someday Dr. Christensen would move out and create his own practice, and now--over two years later--that day is fast approaching.....

The past six months have included selling a lot of our possessions (including one of our cars),
moving out of our cute rental house and renting the upstairs of a friend's house, and making a dozen other "sacrifices" in the name of saving/collecting money to help finance the start of our own Chiropractic practice.

Blood, sweat, tears, frustration, countless hours, late-night "business meetings" between Garrett and I, and a pinch or two of stress have become our norm,
but now I can add excitement to that list as construction on our office is underway and we are set to open the doors to Christensen Chiropractic in just a few weeks!

I can honestly say that it has been so much more work than I anticipated, I'm bracing myself for all the work we still have ahead of us, and I would have preferred the opening of this practice to not have fallen directly after having a baby; however, despite the work, risk, and stress involved in starting a small business, this is the epitome of the American dream!
What a wonderful thing to be able to create our own business where Garrett can fulfill his dream of helping people to get out of pain and live healthier lives.
I am so proud of him for his desire to work hard and serve others.

We drove by the office yesterday to check out the construction progress and to see our newly-installed sign.  What do you think?!

The interior is ready for lighting, carpet, and paint.  Then I can go in and add my personal "touch" and get the space cozy, calming, and ready to receive patients.....in just two weeks!  Eeep!!
Stay tuned.  We have a few very busy but exciting weeks ahead of us......

Hey Holly! Call me or Andrew if you have any questions or want to talk office stuff. We got a lot of office furniture on overstock.com. It is super stressful we can relate! Hiring and training staff was the hardest. Are you going to hire a front desk person?

What a busy beginning of the year--and utterly fantastic. Excited to see the interior (kinda fun to decorate I bet). Congratulations! You guys are great examples of saving now for something better.
