I’m Christa Gurka. I’ve been a physical therapist for over 20 years, a Pilates instructor for 17, and a business owner for over a decade.
I’ve built a multi-million dollar business from the ground up without an MBA or outside investors and I am still running my company myself. Sometimes I am still shocked by that.
But it wasn’t always a well-oiled machine.
When I first started out, I failed to grow the proper infrastructure to support my company’s growth. Why? Because I had no idea what I was doing.
I had no systems, no accountability for my team, no vision or marketing strategy. I was simply winging it. This caused many sleepless nights, mistakes, failures, do-overs, and self-doubt (and some pesky gray hairs while raising two boys).
I had unknowingly created a business that revolved entirely around me. And as we grew so did my responsibilities, stress and anxiety. I knew this was NOT sustainable nor healthy. It wasn’t until I stepped out of that fear and started asking for help, and asking others to share their expertise guidance that I started to see the light at the end of the tunnel and started seeing REAL sustainable growth in my company.
