Fireside Chat with Kim Griffin Founder of Griffin OT

“An Entrepreneurs Journey” With Occupational Therapist and sensory expert

Coming to you all the way from London, UK, our special guest and entrepreneur this week is a big traveller who Mark Phillips the founder of Business in Bare Feet met in Spain 13 years ago, and have been friends ever since.

Three years ago Kim decided to embark on her entrepreneurial journey to make Occupational Therapy affordable and available to everyone. So she started off on the adventure of bringing OT online with a mission to  OT affordable and accessible to all who needed it.


Below is the live chat with Kim, which she shares how she got started. It’s always an interesting discussion because we all have a reason for starting something like this but how many of us make it? Kim is determined and highly skilled in her profession, however in saying that, when you listen to her Fireside chat in the video below you realise that we have our struggles and here are some of the things covered in the chat and recommends from her 3-year journey so far. And she has gotten her business to a stage where she has replaced her full-time job income and is truly making a difference in her space of Online OT.

In the Video Kim covers a lot of her story and what it takes to be a trainer, teacher to becoming an entrepreneur and here are just some of the things sh covers:

  1. Ask lots of questions – entrepreneurs are curious and want to solve the problem.
  2. logo’s and names can come later.
  3. Affordability matters – how to find the logical argument.
  4. Reach out to advisers that you trust and respect.
  5. Know that there is lots of help available and how Kim discovered it herself.
  6. Stats and data matter
  7. Audience matters, while you are building a product – Finding the correct audience, can take some time.
  8. Value is not determined by what you think – Trail and error discovering your value.
  9. Own your space – You may feel like an entrepreneur or founder and but that’s ok.
