“I didn’t have any entrepreneurs in my family. I knew I wanted to do it my own way, and knew it could be done different and better.”
“Different and better”, synonymous with the entrepreneur’s lifestyle, for Crosby meant that she wanted to focus more on the prevention of issues that lead to the need for physical therapy and try to be less reactive to problems. It was out of this philosophy that she published the book, “How to think like a physical therapist”, which she continually refers to while treating patients to educate them and teach them how to avoid repeating their injury.
When she decided to ski down the mountain of self employment, she began to do research on what it would take, which led her to the Colorado Springs Small Business Development Center for help with a business plan.
“The help I got at the SBDC was invaluable” said Crosby.
Getting the financing was the biggest obstacle, but she knew without it her dreams wouldn’t be possible. Cosby first visited the SBDC in the summer of 2008 when the idea was a “twinkle in her eyes”. She got serious about the business plan in January 2009, and after becoming a long term client of the SBDC, she had the help she needed to prepare a business plan that she used to apply for and receive an SBA 7a loan from Vectra Bank.
Opening the doors of Synergy Physical Therapy in October of 2009, Kelli has been enjoying every day of the life of an entrepreneur, running her physical therapy clinic with the proactive philosophy she knows is different and better.
