Kris talks with Laura Patrick, founder of Kids Physio Group. They discuss what it’s like being a solopreneur with one location and evolving into a leader managing five clinics and 35 employees.

Laura Patrick (nee Turner) was born and raised in North Vancouver, BC Canada. She is the founder and owner of Kids Physio Group - Canada's largest chain of private pediatric physical therapy clinics.

With a passion for sports, she first graduated from UBC’s Human Kinetics (Exercise Science) program in 2001 before continuing on to receive her Masters in Physiotherapy from McMaster University in 2003.

Laura founded Kids Physio Group in 2006 in the humblest of surroundings.

After 3 years working in the public system with school-aged kids, she recognized a need for all children to have access to trained pediatric physiotherapists in clinic space designed just for them.

In the past few years, Laura has stepped back from clinical work. Although she still loves taking on the occasional baby motor milestone assessment and the opportunity it gives her to connect with parents, most of her efforts are dedicated to running Kids Physio Group and seeking out new partnerships and markets for them to expand into!

On the personal front, Laura loves outdoor adventures with her family in Deep Cove, keeping up her fitness, exploring new cities abroad and cooking and eating delicious food!

What you'll learn from this episode:

  1. What it’s like going from technician/doer to manager/leader. 
  2. Get a mentor; someone you can trust.
  3. Many of Laura’s team are working in the Manager Formula.
  4. Hire good people and then let go.
  5. The resources Laura thinks everyone should know.
  6. The unique challenges Laura believes that female entrepreneurs face.
  7. The qualities Laura looks for in someone she hires.

There are several qualities that drive you and your entrepreneurial spirit. Here are some suggestions for avoiding wasting your brain space and your time dragging people along because they can’t handle working with you.

What you'll learn from this episode:

  1. Founders have high expectations and low tolerance for mistakes.
  2. They’re incredibly generous and want to recognize and reward people who work for them.
  3. They’re visionaries and they change their minds a lot.
  4. It’s hard to earn their trust, and that can feel like micro-management. Founders are "swoopers" and they always will be. 
  5. Sometimes they forget to say thank you and they can be very direct.
  6. They move so fast.
  7. Founders must hire people with “a maturity of spirit” who have enough independence to take action and yet enough humility to not take it personally when they’re told they did it wrong and need to do it again.

Thinking about your employees as human capital instead of an incurred expense will totally change the way you run your business and the results you achieve.

What you'll learn from this episode:

  1. Capital is the assets that add to the long-term wealth of a company. 
  2. Instead of thinking of someone as an expense you need to incur, think of them as an asset and an investment into your wealth.
  3. In preparing to make such an investment, first ask yourself, “What is the result I’m trying to achieve with this role?”
  4. Second, ask yourself, “How will I track and measure the results of the role to make sure I’m achieving those results?”
  5. Third, “Have I clearly defined this asset’s job?”
  6. The four things you’ll stop doing as a result of thinking of employees as human capital.

I coach female entrepreneurs and help them overcome their challenges. I have found that there are five key things that entrepreneurs struggle with. Here they are - along with their solutions.

What you'll learn from this episode:

  1. The first challenge is failure to lead. 
  2. Second is failure to define the game.
  3. Third, not having very clear expectations as it relates to what you pay people.
  4. Fourth, thinking down instead of up and out.
  5. Lastly, not cutting the ties and continuing to drag parts of your business along that no longer serve the bigger goals you have.
