    REHABpreneur Online Summit Recap

    REHABpreneur Online Summit Recap

    Recap of 2-Day REHABpreneur Live Online Summit



    Today, I’m going to talk about the recap of the REHABpreneur Live Online Summit held last June 29 and 30, 2019. Several business owners with different business models came together in this awesome event to explain their different ways in doing their businesses and how they make money.
     
    If you are a physical therapist (PT), an occupational therapist (OT), or a speech therapist and you’re in the fence of running to start a business and you don’t know what to do or where to start with so much noise around you, the online summit is for you. You can also check the replay to the link below if you were not able to join the online summit.

    Anthony Maritato, PT
    “Medicare + Cash”
     
    Anthony (or Tony) spoke about Medicare and Cash -- how do you build Medicare,how do you build Cash, and where do you draw the line.
     
    Prior to his talk, I have no clue on how to do that, and he showed it with his presentation. In my practice, I don’t build Medicare and I don’t build Cash as I build the Home Health Contracting straight up, but Tony basically laid out the plan and how someone can do it.
     
    If you want to create another source of income, Tony pitches you from zero to Billing Medicare in a few weeks through his course.



    Dr. Jessica Drummond, DCN, CNS, PT
    “Pelvic/Women’s Health”
     
    I didn’t realize that Jessica has a program that basically lays out for you what you need to do if you want to get into Pelvic and Women’s Health business. You gotta check it out because this business will blow up and is already blowing up.
     
    How many therapists do you know who are currently doing Pelvic and Women’s Health? Not a lot. I’m telling you that this is the right time to get into it, to know and understand how can you tap into their market. Regardless if you are a female or a male therapist, there are different niches that you can get into.



    Asha Gummadi, PT MS, NCS
    “Telehealth for Rehab Professionals”
     
    If you don’t know her, Asha is the winner of the National Geographic's “Chasing Genius Unlimited Innovation” Award. She won the award because she solved the problem in India on how you can deliver healthcare to hard-to-reach areas with people who needs help.
     
    This is why she came up with a telehealth software called Therex Portal. This therapist is a problem solver. If you think about it, that's who we are. As therapists, we are all problem solvers.
     
    This is the reason why I came up with the REHABpreneur Summit. Why did I put all this therapists together and talk about our business models? It is because I want to solve the problem of not knowing what to do, not knowing where to start, or not having time.
     
    If you're a therapist and you're thinking that you don't have time, I'm gonna tell you this: You have 24 hours and I have 24 hours. I don't have 20 hours a day as we all have the same 24 hours a day. If we were able to do it, there's no excuse for you: you can do it as well.
     
    If your excuse is having kids, I have kids, too. My wife and I raised our kids and they’re now 19 and 15 years old and we're still raising them. There's no excuse.
     
    It's really dependent on how bad you want it, how bad do you want to change your situation. If you're satisfied working your 9-to-5 job and that's all you want to do until you retire and be dependent on the corporate system and get a paycheck, and that's your plan, if that's what you want to do then you don't need to listen to any business models or anyone who's separated from the 9-to-5 job.
     
    But if you are tired of your 9-to-5 job, putting up with these impossible productivity, and wasting your time on stuff you don't really love but you have to do it because you have to make money, then you got to make a change. But how are you g
