Meet Yomi Adeyemi, MD, owner of 4EverYoungRx and Featured Business Owner at SCORE Chicago this week. Learn how he started and what tips he has for your success.
What is your company’s elevator pitch?
Yomi Adeyemi formed 4EverYoungRx to bring a higher level of preventative medicine and wellness. 4EverYoung provides programs that help prevent and reverse such chronic diseases as heart disease, hypertension and diabetes, allowing clients to age gracefully.
What inspired you to start your business?
I was inspired by the need to go beyond the conventional medicine approach, which is reactive. I wanted to have a program that was pro-active to encourage wellness.
Who are your clients, and give an example of how you served that person or business?
Our clients are middle-aged adults — both men and women — that want the best health solutions to address their symptoms of aging such as fatigue, chronic diseases, weight gain, low sexual and physical energy, peri-menopausal symptoms and andropause (for men.)
What is your biggest business challenge?
It’s a challenge to change the mindset of people that have accepted the familiar phrase from their traditional family doctor, “You’re just getting older.” I work to educate clients about new developments in the field of “Age Management Medicine” that allow us to age youthfully. Our techniques also reverse many of the signs and symptoms of aging.
What is your Mentor’s name, and how they have helped you in your business?
Mitchell Morris and Peg Corwin have worked directly with Cindy Rhoden, our V.P. of Business Development. They genuinely want to help and guide our business. I appreciate that the company has someone else to share different ideas and to gain insights from another perspective.
What advice would you give other entrepreneurs?
Make sure you have a solid marketing plan but spend most time selling value!
What is your website for further info?
Our business mentors can help you, too!
