In this episode, I interview Jonathan Moody, the Founder, CEO at Physio Inq, a physiotherapy and allied healthcare company. Physio Inq provides a range of physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech pathology, and exercise physiology services both in-clinic and via mobile practitioners, the latter specializing in disability and aged care. Trained as a physiotherapist, Jonathan is an allied health advocate, with a passion for empowerment through education and training, and committed to improving access to quality allied health for all people.
Aged 25 in 2006 with his then-wife, he started a physio business in a four by four-meter room. Fast forward 14 years and they now have 14 practices, 12 franchisees, and 270 team members, only losing one during Covid. The practices took a hit during the pandemic but the team prepared for the customers’ return and business exceeded their expectations, setting new records. They launched a mobile home care arm a few years ago and in Covid times, it grew 30% off a large base. After separating 7 years ago, he and his wife are still 50/50 business partners. They almost went bankrupt in 2016 when they were down to their last $2 in the bank account.
They funded the business through a mix of bank debt and profits, and he felt they had succeeded when they got through almost bankruptcy. Jonathan says the hardest thing about growing a small business is overcoming the middle growing pains (Around $2 Million per annum) The one thing he says he would tell himself on day one of starting out is, “Keep your head out of the clouds and stay grounded” Stay tuned for more of Jonathan’s inspiring small business story.
