Hi, my name is Laura McKaig, I’m from Olathe Kansas (Kansas City), and I’m a physical therapist. We’re in the pelvic health niche, with special focus in men's health and age 55+ populations. I want to get these things from the SSHC Group: 1. Community and collaboration with a group of like-minded healthcare professionals. 2. Learning more how to scale and grow a very unique niche in creative ways. 3. Energy and fun--I started my business at age 53, you all help keep me young! :-) . For fun, I like to: 1. listen to live jazz. 2. go to local coffee shops. 3. cheer on my favorite MLS soccer team.
I got thrown to the wolves. I got back into the PT profession after being out for 14 years, felt called to specialize in pelvic PT. It was a rough re-entry! Got fired from my first job, got fired from my "backup" dream job before I even started. Worked for a friend as an independent contractor and that didn't go as we had hoped. I wasn't fitting into her way of running her business so I was given 3 options: 1) quit the profession 2) go work for someone else, or 3) start my own business. My desire to continue on this path outweighed the sheer terror of being a business owner. So I chose option 3.
This month, I was able to pay myself triple the amount I paid myself last January. Met with my accountant today and we are discussing moving from LLC to S-corp. Those of you who know me from SSHC, that is a HUGE move! Slow and steady does pay off :-)
