What sets your organization apart from others in your industry?

What’s your favourite thing to do (or place to visit) in Winnipeg?
Since opening the Body Measure, we are very busy and have less leisure time. We really cherish the time spent with family and friends, especially on one of Winnipeg’s beautiful patios! 


 What question are you asked most frequently by clients and prospects? 
The question we get asked the most is “How did you come up with this idea?”

Erica and I were working on a longitudinal study at the University of Manitoba. I was the research coordinator and Erica was the x-ray technologist. We did Dexa scans on study participants as part of a data collection on bone health. On a regular basis we had participants ask if we were taking more participants, which we were not. We soon began to realize that this was a screening that people wanted and should have access to. 

What’s your best piece of business advice?
As new business owners, we felt it was important to seek out opportunities to meet and network with other Winnipeg Businesses

What’s your best piece of business advice? 
Do not be afraid to ask for what you need. Once you being to put yourself out there, 9 times out of 10 things fall into place.
