I recently interviewed a physiotherapist based out of Melbourne, Australia. My good friend, Luke Goodwin is an entrepreneur, physical therapist, and start-up business motivator. Within a short period, Luke has established himself as a successful small business owner and, through the launch of his GripSox™ (non-slip grip socks), has gained international presence.
Luke was only 24 when he set up his first business- a Physical Therapy practice. Thru hardwork and strategic physical therapy marketing techniques, he expanded his business a couple of years later by setting up a brand new Pilates exercise studio. This has now been further expanded in the past year to be a leading Health & Wellness Centre in Melbourne.
In 2005 Luke launched on to the market his very own GripSox™ product. In the space of four years, Luke’s GripSox™ product is now sold by over sixty retailers in Australia, and has international retailers in the UK, USA, New Zealand, Dubai and Belgium. It is now being widely sought after as a falls prevention safety aid in many hospitals, aged care centres and in the general community. Recent independent clinical trials have highlighted the true benefit of this product.
It has been Luke’s entrepreneurial traits like passion, determination, vision and perseverance that have seen him get to where he is today. Luke’s experience will inspire you to dream big for you and your physical therapy business.
