Detroit Mom’s Local Love series highlights local women and the businesses they have built. We love supporting small business! Today’s Local Love Spotlight belongs to Dr. Nicole Dailey and Dr. Marganit Weinberg, owners of Pelvic Core Physical Therapy!
We started by asking Nicole and Marganit to share a few fun facts about themselves with us. Nicole has two fur babies named Cooper and Coconut. She was a pilates instructor for many years before she was a physical therapist, and she has run two half marathons! Marganit is originally from England. She has three wonderful kids, and she went to undergrad in New York.
We asked Nicole and Marganit to share a little bit more about her business with us. Get to know them and their business, Pelvic Core Physical Therapy, below!
How did you come up with the idea of your business, and how did you start?
“[We] met in [our] doctorate of physical therapy program at Oakland University. [We] were both passionate about the pelvic floor and knew that [we] wanted to specialize in this area. The idea of having a non-clinical, welcoming atmosphere with adequate time to provide individualized and holistic treatment is what led [us] to creating Pelvic Core Physical Therapy.”
Knowing what you know now, is there anything you would have done differently when you were first starting out?
“Nothing! We have truly made our dreams come true with this business and are just so grateful to be able to help people struggling with pelvic floor issues in a holistic way.”
What is the best business advice you’ve ever been given?
“Continue to get out of your comfort zone, that’s how you will grow towards the business of your dreams.”
How do you persevere in challenging times?
“We are lucky to have a partnership where we each have individual strengths and weaknesses. If one of us is having a difficult time, the other can usually step up and provide support.”
What impact do you want your business to have?
“Our goal is to help all people struggling with pelvic floor dysfunction [to] be able to meet their goals and improve their quality of life. We also want to educate the community about the pelvic floor! All genders have pelvic floors, and it is not normal or just something that you live with to have symptoms like leaking, urgency, frequency, constipation, or pain. There is help out there!!”
What are the pros and cons of being a woman business owner in 2023?
“We think that being a business owner in 2023 is amazing! So many opportunities for female-owned businesses.”
What knowledge would you share with someone who wants to become an entrepreneur?
“Don’t give up on your dreams, find mentors, take advice from people who have done what you are looking to do, [and] don’t be resistant to making changes.”
What do you do for personal and professional development?
“[We] participate in continuing education courses, mentorship from respected pelvic floor PT business owners in the industry, and networking with local healthcare providers in order to provide the best care for our patients.”
What mantra or quote do you live by?
“The pelvic floor is the base of the core.”
What’s your favorite place in Detroit or Michigan?
“We love Red Hook Cafe in downtown Ferndale.”
