059 - Louise Reaney Podiatry Was Boring The Arse Off Me

Louise Reaney is a UK based podiatrist and owner of LR Podiatry. Without knowing, Lousie became an accidental business owner and with that came a surprising amount of stress, mental fatigue, exhaustion and as she explains, "podiatry was boring the arse off me". 

But, this all changed three years ago when Louise made a conscious effort to do something about the boredom that had set in, resulting in her becoming a happy podiatrist who now looks forward to working every day.  

On this episode we discuss:

  • Changing her business name 
  • Getting to the point of exhaustion 
  • Buying an existing general practice
  • Lack of time for CPD
  • Being too frightened to take a risk and make the required changes her podiatry business needed.
  • Becoming an accidental business owner
  • Being busy does not equal success or profitability
  • Feeling trapped and thinking is this what everyone feels like in business
  • Why podiatry became boring  
  • Increasing her fees, resulting in losing a few patients, but having more time, more money and being happier
  • #PodsHealheels
