    The Freedom Of Running Your Clinic Remotely With Roland Cochrun, PT

    The Freedom Of Running Your Clinic Remotely With Roland Cochrun, PT

    Roland Cochrun, PT set out from an early age to be a PT owner and had a ton of immediate success. Over time, he still fell into the trap of full-time treatment which limited his ability to run his business and pursue his goals for a year. Finally, on a day off, he decided that he was going to focus on what was important to him, and he hasn't looked back. He stepped out of patient care, focused on what he really wanted to do. He no longer lives in the same state as his practice (Oregon). He trains and coaches his PT leadership team remotely, and runs other successful businesses. The freedom he developed is exactly what small business owners look forward to. He joins Nathan Shields to share how he continues to have a significant impact in his community via his successful business.

    Re-Establishing Your Financial Foundation: Ramping Up After Covid-19 With Eric Miller

    Eric Miller of Econologics is back on the show with Nathan Shields to talk about money.

Now, as clinics begin ramping up, he's back to discuss what owners need to do to re-establish their financial foundation and set themselves up to weather any future downturns. He lists five accounts each owner should establish and the mindset needed to establish wealth. It's simple yet takes consistent effort and intention.

    5 Things To (re)Consider While Ramping Up

    5 Things To (re)Consider While Ramping Up

    The COVID-19 pandemic has provided many of us a little more time on our hands to assess how our clinics are doing in general. Whether you're reopening, slowly increasing production, or stuck in a holding pattern, it helps to make use of this down time to really consider and reconsider some fundamentals of your business. Host, Nathan Shields, breaks down five of the things that you need to look into now: purpose, responsibilities, goals, marketing, and self-control. Being intentional and specific about how things have changed in your business and taking advantage of the opportunity in front of you may set you to a completely different path than prior to the pandemic—a path that leads to greater freedom, fulfillment, and profits. These things take some effort, but going back to the status quo should not be your future. Make something better for yourself, your family, your employees, and your business with the help of this episode.

    Marketing Strategies To Ease The Path For New Patients With Peter Decoteau

    Marketing Strategies To Ease The Path For New Patients With Peter Decoteau

    Getting patients to enter the door may seem simple but is actually one of the hardest steps PT clinics tackle. Today, Nathan Shields talks to Peter Decoteau, the marketing director at Physical Therapy & Sports Medicine Centers (PTSMC), the largest privately-owned PT group in Connecticut. Focusing on breaking down any barriers that keep new patients from coming in the door, Peter recognizes that the first barrier for a majority of people is simply knowledge - not enough people know what physical therapy is, thus your message has to recognize that. He shares aspects that make these technical such as location, insurance, and those can be further addressed after you've captured their attention. Peter believes that regardless of the steps taken, it is necessary to know what your brand is, who your ideal client is, where they get their information, and the content they need to hear all of which leads you to begin to generate marketing campaigns.

    Growth Accelerator: Hire Them On Or Hire It Out With Christina Panetta, PT

    Growth Accelerator: Hire Them On Or Hire It Out With Christina Panetta, PT

    Christina Panetta, PT learned fairly early on in her clinic ownership that she needed to outsource in order to grow and improve. When she needed some time and space after having a baby, she hired a PT and came back to part-time work. When she recognized that she needed more business training, she hired a business consultant. Now, decades later, when she needed some support on social media to drive patients into her clinic, she hired a social media marketing company. Too many times, in order to save money, owners will take it upon themselves or leave it to their staff to work in areas that are not their specialty (business ownership and social marketing are two examples). This inevitably leads to poor outcomes, distractions, wasted energy, and little return on the investment. Moral of the story—hire them on or hire it out.
