Ep 53 - Starting a Business Against All Odds with Karlien Terblanche

This week’s podcast brings a totally different perspective on starting a business.

I’m joined by an OT who grew a successful business despite hearing — repeatedly — that there’s no way it would work.

💥 She pitched a business collaboration idea — they shut her down.

💥 She spoke with another OT about her idea — she was told, “Mental health OTs can’t do that.”

💥 The marketplace for her services didn’t exist — she was the first to try.

💥 She didn’t have a guide — she learned by trial and error.

💥 The currency conversion means she pays a LOT in USD for online platforms.

Despite all these roadblocks, she started an OT business that fits her lifestyle and changes lives.

Are you curious about how she overcame — and what advice she has for you? It’s all in this week’s episode. Enjoy!

Hey there! I’m Trish.

I'm a warm, outspoken, driven Canadian OT turned business coach with a passion for helping other OT entrepreneurs build a profitable and lasting business. I have been an OT for 27 years and built two successful businesses. My #1 goal is to lay it all on the table to empower you with the tools and resources you need. I spent years as an entrepreneur working IN my business instead of ON my business, and I now know (and can share!) the benefits of truly embodying a CEO lifestyle. I’ve done a lot of growing (and it never truly ends) and unlocked keys to success in business and in life.

In a distinctly OT way.
