Kirsten Sinclair is a Scottish podiatrist who qualified from Queen Margaret University in 2001. She believes that if you’re unhappy with any aspect of your podiatry career, you need to take action and change it.  Kirsten initially worked in the NHS; however, after falling pregnant with her first child, within the first 12 months of her employment, she was not allowed to return to the NHS part-time. She was given a choice; work full-time work or leave the NHS. Kirsten decided to leave the NHS and instead developed a part-time home visit service to work around her children.   From Routine Care to MSK In 2018, after her children had grown up, Kirsten decided to open her own stand-alone private practice, some 17 years after graduating, and as Kirsten puts it, “it’s never too late”. However, after doing home visits and routine care for 17 years and not using her MSK knowledge, it did take some time for her to transition back into this area of podiatry. She found attending biomechanical seminars and weekend workshops and asking questions, especially from her orthotic laboratory, was especially helpful in improving her MSK skills. “If you want something bad enough, you will be prepared to do the work”. Bigger is Not Always Better Kirsten learnt that owning her own business can be stressful and bigger is not always better. You have far more responsibilities and stress when you expand and take on more team members. The stress of business ownership was difficult, and she often asked herself if going bigger was a good idea or if she should have stayed small and continued to work as a solo practitioner.  “I think a lot of podiatrists as themselves this same question”. Therapeutic Lasers In 2019 Kirsten was introduced to therapeutic lasers (aka photobiomodulation therapy/PBMT), which changed everything for her. Before this, she only used shockwave therapy but found laser therapy far more effective. In 2021 she started working for Celtic part-time and then in January 2022, decided to transition again from business ownership and take on a full-time position as a clinical demonstrator and trainer, teaching others how to use MLS laser to benefit their patients, their practice and them as practitioners.

Geoff Dowling initially studied prosthetics and orthotics at university and then went back to complete podiatry. Geoff worked closely with a foot and ankle surgeon for three years and saw many foot and ankle pathologies. Through this experience, he also saw a lot of ineffective orthotic devices.  After starting his clinic, Geoff was disheartened to see orthotics that were not providing patients with the best clinical outcome, so together with his wife Noura, they decided to design a new type of device, Modulign Orthotics.  If you want to connect with Geoff, you can email him at geoff@modulign.com.au.

Kent Sweeting graduated from the Queensland University of Technology, Brisbane, in 2004 and over his career, he has kept saying yes to every opportunity presented to him.  This 'just say yes' attitude has been integral to developing his career from clinical podiatrist and owner of Performance Podiatry & Physio to researcher and eventual owner of Queensland Orthotic Lab. In this episode, we discuss the following: Why he decided to leave a well-established running clinic to pursue a broader scope of podiatry practice.   Setting up his practice with his brother.  The tough learning curve of business ownership. Patients can wear you down over time.  Buying the Queensland Orthotic Lab. Why saying yes made a huge impact on his career.  Saying YES leads to other opportunities.

Dr Brandon Macy is the owner of Clark Podiatry Centre in Clark, New Jersey, and he has run a very successful solo practice for the past 41 years. As his business grew, he did consider employing another podiatrist; however, bigger is not always better, so he decided not to go down that path and instead focus on training his team and making his business more efficient. Within his business, he has also established a niched paediatric practice called the New Jersey Children's Foot Health Institute, and even though he is a solo practitioner, his business joined the New Jersey Podiatric Physicians & Surgeons Group (a supergroup) in 2014. In this episode, we discuss: Not getting overwhelmed as the business grows. How and why he set up a niched paediatric business within his primary business. The benefits of joining a supergroup. Why do you need to connect and network with others, especially as a solo practitioner? The importance of finding your patient's WHY. Why do they have a foot problem? How coaching helped him establish his niche. How you can run a solo business and still have a life.

For the sake of the podiatry profession, every podiatrist needs to start valuing what they do. They need to back their knowledge and skills when treating foot and ankle problems, and they should never take a backward step when dealing with other healthcare providers. My guest, Dr Richard Chasen, is the owner of The Lower Limb Clinic in Melbourne, Victoria, and was previously on Ep 99 – More Than Just A Pod; on this episode, we discuss why most podiatrists live the life that happens to them instead of the life they want. Misconception When it comes to your career, you have the choice to do what you want, and GPs should not control you, nor should they be in a position not to make you sink or swim. Also, there's a misconception that allied health professionals are a diluted version of a GP. This is not true; we are all professionals in our own right. If you don’t believe in what you do, why should your patients? Communication & Discounts What you say to a patient only accounts for 8% of your communication; the rest comes from your body language and facial expressions. If you're giving patients a discount or spending more time with them each consultation, it's useless unless the patient is aware you are doing this. If you provide them with a discount, point it out. If you're spending more time with them, over and above what you usually would allow, make sure they know this. You lose value in the consultation by not communicating all the extra things you for them that they may take for granted. Extra Time May Be Hurting Your Business When you spend extra time with patients because you do not have a patient booked immediately afterwards, do you know it could annoy your patient, especially if they need to be elsewhere? They may be asking themselves, is this going to happen every visit? Or, they get used to the extra time, and when you cut it back to the correct amount of time, they will think they've been underserviced. Price Rises As soon as you put your prices up, it adds value to your skill set. Patients chasing the cheapest podiatrist don't care who they see or the quality of the work.   If you value who you are, your patients will value you as well. How Do Podiatrists Run A Bulk-Billing Business? The only way a podiatrist can run a bulk-billing practice is by not knowing their numbers or not understanding how revenue and profits work. Or, they've set the bar so low for themselves and over time, they have devalued who they are and what they do.   You can't say you're the best at treating a particular problem in the foot and ankle and then not charge correctly. Incongruency will kill your business. Side Note If you needed neck surgery and one surgeon said they could do it for $4500 and the other said they would do it for $450, who would you choose and why? 7 Things That Happen When You Charge More? You provide a better patient experience. You can attend better CPD (National and International) You can attend more events, conferences and workshops. You'll have more up-to-date equipment. You can offer more treatment services. You'll have a happier team. You'll be a more content employer, parent and partner.  If you think you’re not worth what you’re charging, then you’re right. Give Patients an Experience When patients visit your podiatry business, you need to make their visit an experience, not just a transaction. No different to going to a top-end restaurant. Be the Best If you want to be the best in the foot and ankle space, and you think podiatrists are the best profession to look after that space, you have a responsibility to do a couple of things: You've got to be the best at it, and you've got to know your stuff when it comes to treating the foot and ankle. You've got to communicate with other people (referrers, etc.) to help them understand that their patients are better off seeing you because you're in the foot and ankle space all the time. Educate the patient to help them understand the importance of their treatment. Final Tip You have a responsibility to be a podiatry futurist. Where will the world be, and what is the next stage for podiatry? Try and skate to where the puck is going to be, not where it's been.    If you have any questions about this episode, please email me at tf@tysonfranklin.com  Business Coaching  Are you looking for a Podiatry Business Coach who thinks differently?

When a podiatry business grows, you end up with a team, and that team needs to be led, and how you lead them will leave both positive and negative traces, which are referred to as Green Traces (positive) and Red Traces (negative).  In this episode, I am joined by Paul Kinkaid, an Executive Leadership Coach and retired Commando-trained Lieutenant Colonel in the British Army, and we're discussing how private practice owners need to step into the leadership domain if they want to thrive.  We also discuss:  The difference between leadership and management. Self-awareness. The best leaders are always studying leadership. How you lead could be based on elements you've seen before, but did these examples of leadership leave positive traces (Green) or negative traces (Red) on you? Not asking questions results in the Law of Unintended Consequences. Difference between servant leadership and servile leadership A good leader will have a clear INTENT (Goal) and they need to paint this picture of the future for their team to follow. How a business benefits by creating leaders instead of followers. Followers will ask you constantly what they should do next, whereas leaders will tell you what they intend to do next and will keep moving forward. Creating leaders around you creates more space in your diary and mind, allowing you to be more strategic in your thinking. Managing processes is not leadership. Born leaders are doing leadership by default. This is also no good leadership.  Three guiding principles of forensic leaders: Lead from a position of care. Notice people and, where appropriate, give recognition or notice when they are struggling and lean in and help out. That’s when the leader gets their hands dirty. They see patients when it's busy and when required, they get back on the tools. Be appropriately transparent and communicate your intent - your vision, your purpose, and your strategy in a compelling way so everyone understands their part in the plan and therefore they’re going to get on board. Doing the right thing always leaves GREEN traces on people and doing the wrong thing will leave RED traces.  The standard you walk past is the standard you accept. You’ve got to sweat the small stuff; you’ve got to look at the details; they are that important. When you start leading poorly and leaving red traces on your team, the good people will leave because they back themselves to get another job, and the less than good people will stay. This is damaging for your business.   Forensic Leadership - pay attention to the guiding principles and traces. 4 Key Questions What will happen if I do it? What won’t happen if I do it? What will happen if I don’t do it? What won’t happen if I don’t do it? When you put the answers to all these questions through the forensic leadership filter, what green and red traces are going to be left and what is the impact on my people, then you know what the right decision is. Every successful podiatrist leaves clues, green traces, and every unsuccessful podiatrist also leaves clues, red traces.  If your employer says the wrong thing in a meeting, you can easily say that was a bit red, or if was very red, you could say that left a really big red trace. As an employer, you don’t want to leave red traces. Habit stacking When you get up in the morning, what version of you has gotten up? Sometimes you’re just grumpy, or maybe you get cut off on the road on the way to work. Be aware of how you feel, as this will influence your leadership ability that day.  Make leadership deliberate, conscious and intentional. Think about how you lead, the traces you leave on other people, and the traces that are left upon you, and you have to own those traces. Combine that with a compelling narrative that gives the intent in a clear and compelling way you will have a fantastic team.

Before inventing the Richie Brace, Dr Doug Richie was content growing and developing his sports podiatry practice; however, that all changed when podiatrists started using it to treat Post Tib Dysfunction.  In this episode, we discuss: What happened AFTER the Richie Brace was invented. The changes it made to his career.  How he pivoted and embraced this change to create a booming podiatry business that was no longer sports-focused. The positives of changing your patient demographics.  Reinventing yourself, which many podiatrists do about 15 years into their careers.  Leaving your EGO at the door.  How did the Richie Brace become so popular?  It was all by accident; there was no self-promotion. Dr Doug Richie was unexpectedly invited to speak at many conferences and, along the way, developed a series of educational lectures and workshops on the correct use and application of the Richie Brace and Post Tib Dysfunction treatment.  Make sure you listen to Episode 216 - Before the Richie Brace.  If you have any questions, please email me at tf@tysonfranklin.com and if you're looking for a Podiatry Business Coach that thinks differently, visit my website, tysonfranklin.com 
Emily Ball is the Founder of Active Step Foot & Ankle Clinic Ltd, Hampshire UK, which she started in 2013. Over eight years, she developed a great, profitable business; however, it took an immediate downturn following the shock diagnosis of leukaemia in her 3-year-old in November 2021. Because Emily was forced to step away entirely from her practice, her business experienced the devastating impact of the absence of leadership on her business. Emily was quick to learn that there is a big difference between business coaching and business leadership.  It's important for your team to come to you with plans and solutions, instead of only coming to you with problems. That's when you know you've developed true leaders.  If you have any questions about this episode, please email me at tf@tysonfranklin.com or you can contact Emily Ball at emily@leadingpractice.co.uk  Business Coaching Are you looking for a podiatry business coach who coaches differently?

The problem with sticking with treatment modalities that don't work.  Delayed Suffering. What do you do if there is a payout and you've been found responsible? The emotional rollercoaster. How to psychologically survive.  Note taking the right way, so the patient fully understands what treatment you are undertaking and the full extent of complications.  Why a consent form is not good enough?  The dispute resolution process.  Vicarious Liability and why employers need to have standard operating procedures.  If you have any questions about this episode, please email me at tf@tysonfranklin.com.

Regardless of how competent you are, there is still a real possibility that one day a patient could blame you for their pain and suffering and want to take legal action against you.  Dr Cam Wareham is known to many in Australia and the UK as a Consultant Podiatric Surgeon and Professor in Healthcare for the University of Sunderland. He previously was Head of School at the University of Western Australia.  In addition to this, he has a Master of Law in Dispute Resolution and in this episode, we're going to dig into his knowledge in the area of medical-legal aspects of podiatry and what he does as a medical expert in legal cases.  Topics of Discussion: What is negligence and what is not? Balance of probabilities. Duty and standard of care.  Some patients are more high-risk than others.  The power of communication.  Dispute Resolution and Arbitration. Top Three Reasons Patients Sue: They don't want what happened to them to happen to anyone else. They want an apology and want to understand why it went wrong.  Compensation.  Dr Cam Wareham also explains two real-life examples. One is a patient with an ingrown toenail, and the other is a patient with heel pain.  If you have any questions about this episode, please email me at tf@tysonfranklin.com.
