Central Florida Client: Dr. Oscar Nieves
Originally from Puerto Rico, Dr. Oscar Nieves is the owner of Ideal Spine Chiropractic, LLC. Located in Kissimmee, his business offers chiropractic services and other spinal corrective care services to the local community. Moreover, his patients include pregnant women, newborns, kids, and athletes.
At the age of 14, Dr. Nieves was diagnosed with muscular dystrophy, a progressive medical condition. To combat the effects of his health condition and to slow down its progression, he committed to a healthy lifestyle and routine chiropractic treatments. After years of studies and managing his personal illness, Dr. Nieves developed a passion for helping others with similar conditions. His passion later turned into a career force that drove him to eventually start his own business in this field.
Along Dr. Nieves’ entrepreneurial journey, he encountered the challenge of underestimating the difficulties that come with opening a business, developing a marketing plan, understanding the local market, and evaluating his competition. Yet upon starting his business, a patient recommended that he seek Prospera’s guidance and support. In March of this year, Dr. Nieves followed his patient’s advice and attended his first Prospera seminar for entrepreneurs.
After that, Dr. Nieves started working closely with the organization. He received personalized consulting and business advancement services to develop an effective business plan. Upon learning new approaches to managing his business, and receiving recommendations for long-term sustainability, Dr. Nieves has gained knowledge and confidence to make informed decisions for his business’s prolonged success. As Ideal Spine Chiropractic approaches its first anniversary in January 2023, it has grown from a team of two (Dr. Nieves and his wife) to four.
Based on his experience as a small business owner, Dr. Nieves encourages other entrepreneurs to start their dream business and seek help when necessary. “If you don’t try, you won’t know if you will succeed,” he says.
