Amy Maclean is one funny podiatrist and has an infectious sense of humour. It could be because she is from Scotland, but I honestly believe it's her enthusiasm and attitude towards work and life, which made her such an absolute joy to talk with.
On this episode we discuss:
- Studying Pharmacy for two years before studying podiatry
- The lightbulb moment she knew it was time to change careers
- Propositioning people to get her first job
- Getting an excellent business offer from a businessman, but deciding to go out on her own instead. (Great decision)
- Why you must be careful if you're going into partnership with someone who is not a podiatrist
- Private practice can be quite solitary with having a gang
- Why you need to find your gang that fits
- Where to find gangs (and mentors)
- Benefits of workshops and conferences
- Embracing social media and why it is a gamechanger (Instagram and Facebook)
- Benefits of understanding niching down, but you cannot do it overnight, it takes time to implement processes
- Learning to say NO
