Dr Tea Nguyen owns Pacific Point Podiatry in Santa Cruz, California and has a special interest in diabetic limb salvage. She opened her solo practice in August 2018, which has a revived her love for podiatry.
She never planned on owning her own podiatry business, but after falling pregnant her employer didn't respond favourably to her needs, so after having her daughter Vylet, she was given very little choice but to work for herself.
'Having a child is not like having a pet. There's a lot more forward-thinking required".
- How she fell into her practice
- Positive changes after having a child
- Her passion for diabetic foot care
- Seeing a need and filling a gap in the market
- Being an anti-micromanager: you've got to let people make decisions and learn from their errors.
"What do you want to learn? If it does not come to you, you need to go and search for the information yourself".
"I only know what I know and I don’t know what I don’t know, so I never have a problem telling a patient to get a second opinion".
If your podiatry business needs help to develop a marketing plan or business systems, the most efficient way to do this is with one-on-one business coaching. Please email me and let's see where I can you.
