Husband and wife entrepreneurs Tara and Jess Brower were the location of Monday's business visit. Tara is an investment advisor for Edward Jones while Jess is the owner of the Movement Clinic. Since July of 2018, they have been remodeling the new location for both of their businesses. This location is just north of Mi Pueblo restaurant on Hwy 57 south. Both Tara and Jess spoke of the learning experience of buying an existing building and then remodeling it. Dealing with contractors and even internet and phone service companies has been an experience for them.

Both are graduates of Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana. After college and marriage, they moved to St. Louis, where Jess went to chiropractic school and Tara started her training at the Edward Jones headquarters. Tara talked about the entrepreneurial aspect of her investment business. Edward Jones is more of a partnership than a franchise. Each office is independently owned and operated but must follow corporate policies. Tara also covered the types of investments she specializes in and some tips on gaining clients.

Jess went from having his own practice to working for the Daviess Community Hospital to now once again owning his own practice. He talked about not being so broad with your offerings that you water down your services. The Movement Clinic specializes in chiropractic, sports medicine and rehab care. By doing this, the individual care is more defined for the patient.

We thank Jess and Tara for opening up their new business and sharing their success story with us.
