Leading with Triple “S” Values:
I partner with therapists, organizations, and universities to increase therapy business ownership and innovative therapy programs for social impact! I help change the mindset and build a skill set so that the business not only has a social impact but is also financially sustainable.
So, how did I become so passionate about helping therapy entrepreneurs? Let me share a little more about myself so you can understand the root of my life purpose.
From as early as I can remember, I have been enthusiastic about entrepreneurial endeavors. Born to teenage parents, who later divorced, I saw entrepreneurship as a way to help out the family financially in middle school. My first business was a tutoring and babysitting business that became so lucrative that my family decided to take over it. As an adult, my love for entrepreneurship continued to grow. In spite of the vocation I chose, I was always led back to entrepreneurship.
Today, I have a lot of roles–I love ministry. I am a wife, a mother of two boys, an entrepreneurial guru, a runner, a poet, a writer, a speaker, a real estate investor—let’s just say I am an occupational being, that is I love to be occupied in meaningful occupations. I have been an OT since 2001, helping others participate in meaningful daily occupations in spite of disability status. But I was BORN an entrepreneur and all career paths always lead back to my natural gift! So in 2003, after working two years as an employee in a psychiatric hospital, I started Therapeutic Solutions (www.therapeuticsolutionsofnc.
Therapeutic Solutions has now been in business for over 16 years offering innovative specialty services to persons with low vision and/or mental health needs across NC. Although Therapeutic Solutions has successfully developed work in niche specialized markets, navigating the business systems of these markets has not always been easy. Therefore, I am a dedicated educator and advocate for the success of current and aspiring therapy entrepreneurs.
I lead with triple S values: Spirituality, Social Justice and Servitude. I understand the frustrations that many therapists have in some traditional settings that focus on productivity and profit more than service and improving quality of life which results in less than optimal practice. I get it! I lived it and want to change it!
Through Faison Consulting (faisonconsulting.com), I serve as a business consultant and coach partnering with universities, organizations and therapy entrepreneurs to increase therapy business ownership globally.
It’s possible to provide quality services while still making a profit—with a”change in mindset” and “building skill set” and I am available to help make it happen!
It can be tough starting a new business! Tomeico has affiliate agreements in place with multiple businesses that have helped make her business a success!
