Q – Kindly give us a brief description about yourself (it should include your brief educational or entrepreneurial background and list some of your major achievements).
Dr. Joseph J Licitra:
I attended high school at Arch Bishop Molloy in Queens, New York. I received a B.S. in Biology at Fairleigh Dickinson in Teaneck, New Jersey and received my doctorate in chiropractic from New York Chiropractic College. Upon graduation I continued to study advanced Chiropractic techniques in Kinesiology which is a great healing art that balances muscles and nerves throughout the entire body. I have been the team chiropractor for St.Marys High School in Rutherford, New Jersey and have worked on players from the New York Giants as well as a player form the National Hockey League.

Q – What inspired you to (start a new business venture) or (to make significant changes in an existing business)? How did the idea for your business come about?
Dr. Joseph J Licitra:
I had always wanted to be in business for myself and when I went to a chiropractor thirty five years ago for a back condition and was helped it really excited my internal being. I saw this as a way to really help people and to be in control of my own destiny. I still love going to work thirty years later and I always continue to learn.

Q – What three pieces of advice would you give to budding entrepreneurs?
Dr. Joseph J Licitra:
My advice to budding entrepreneur’s would be to love what you do with your entire heart and soul and be willing to do whatever it takes to always put other people’s needs first.

Q – What would you say are the top three skills needed to be a successful entrepreneur?
Dr. Joseph J Licitra:
To be a successful entrepreneur you need to have a clearly defined goal. A clearly defined goal is something you visualize and consistently strive for. The greatest entrepreneurs never give up even in the face of overwhelming adversity. Skills that are needed by successful business entrepreneurs are compassion, understanding, flexibility and the ability to listen and learn. Being able to be mentored is also extremely important as it leads to growth.

Q – How many hours do you work a day on average?
Dr. Joseph J Licitra:
On average I work about 50 hours per week in the office and spend another 10 hours reading on new advances in chiropractic. I also kick box and train with a professional boxer about 5 hours a week to stay in shape. I think this is really important as it is a great stress relief.

Q – To what do you most attribute your success?
Dr. Joseph J Licitra:
I attribute my success to a good up bringing from my mom and dad who always taught me to go after my dreams. They pushed me to excel in school and in athletics. I could be difficult and they were great parents who rode me when I really needed it. For that I am grateful.

Q – How do you go about marketing your business? What has been your most successful form of marketing?
Dr. Joseph J Licitra:
I market my business internally by treating every patient with respect, love, and educating them on the benefits of chiropractic. Externally I go to networking groups and places where I can gain exposure and be able to let people know my expertise. Recently I have started working with Justin Rossi and Ed Kundahl on internet marketing and results have been outstanding. I am really looking forward to this new venture in my life.

The company I admire most is the Tony Robbins Organization. Tony loves people and is driven to get the most out of people. After attending his seminar’s I was motivated to break through barriers and expand my visions.

I have learned to put God first, family second, and truly enjoy this fascinating world we live in.
