We had the good fortune of connecting with Monica Samuels and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Monica, what is the most important factor behind your success?
When I was studying at the Walter Cronkite School of Broadcast Management at ASU, I was fortunate enough to meet Mr. Cronkite a few years before he passed away. One piece of advice he gave me, which has always stayed with me, is “Persistence is the key to success”. I began the process of opening Quasar Quantum Healing in 2018 when I discovered that the technology which helped my daughter could be utilized to help others. That year I purchased a building but ran into zoning issues. Then a business associate I trusted let me down. Through all of this, I never gave up. I persisted and purchased our North Scottsdale building in March of 2020. When the pandemic hit I did not allow it to deter me either. I used 2020 to completely remodel the space, design the Center, secure the most advanced equipment, and find more reliable business associates. About a year later, we opened and we hit the ground running. As for the success of our brand, I feel what is most important is that we put our heart and soul into helping our clients improve their health and their lives. I believe that when you place helping people over profit, you will enjoy both. From the outset, we have seen one success story after another. Of course, a lot of that depends on the clients and whether they adhere to their individually designed programs. When they do, they benefit tremendously. When clients benefit significantly and consistently, the brand succeeds.
What should our readers know about your business?
Quasar Quantum Healing combines space-age technology such as our walk-in hyperbaric chamber, LED light beds, and Theta Wave chamber, with holistic healing practices such as yoga, meditation, our spectacular Himalayan salt room, and nutritional guidance, for an unbeatable combination to enhance healing and wellness. What sets us apart more than anything is the soothing and calming atmosphere you can’t help but notice the minute you enter our healing space. Building Quasar Quantum Healing was no small feat. It required totally reinventing the healing space, fine-tuning the technology, discerning the right clientele, and building the right team, all while the pandemic raged on for a year. What inspired this quest was when conventional medicine failed my own daughter. Painstaking research revealed a potential solution found in energy healing technologies and natural grounding from wilderness therapy. When experienced in tandem, these protocols were extremely effective and helped our daughter tremendously. After seeing her success, I vowed to share this solution and help others heal. Quasar Quantum Healing is the product of this vow.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I would start with Alma, gourmet Mexican cuisine in Scottsdale. I would definitely want to get a hike in at Camelback Mountain. Then I would want to hang out poolside at the Omni Montelucia. I also really enjoy the area of Scottsdale Quarter and the Scottsdale Airpark, where Quasar Quantum is. I really can’t say that any one group of people is more interesting or exciting than any other, you will find great people wherever you go.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I have to start with our talented and dedicated team members, Vered our operations manager and Lauren our marketing director. There are our first clients, who took a leap of faith, and are better for it. Some of my friends, such as Rose, Eduardo, Ruth, Arman, and many others, have supported us from the beginning. Our tenants on the second floor, Steve and Adam, have shown great enthusiasm for what we are doing. Many other colleagues in the healing arts, doctors, yogis, nurses, nutritionists, and others have expressed their sincere support for our mission. Contractors and other workers like electrician and technology expert Aaron, landscape architect Tony, and all-around worker Peterson, have made significant contributions. Without all of these dedicated and caring people, our path would have been infinitely more difficult.
