    Breaking Barriers: How Zach Beckwith Built a Successful PTA Practice

    Breaking Barriers: How Zach Beckwith Built a Successful PTA Practice

    Have you ever wondered what it takes for a Physical Therapy Assistant (PTA) to own and run a successful practice? Are you curious about the key mindset shifts that can transform your career and personal growth in just six months?

    In this FANTAWESOME episode of the Uncaged Clinician Podcast, I’m your host David Bayliff. In this episode, I’m excited to share my conversation today with Zach Beckwith, owner of Path to Performance in Gales Ferry, Connecticut. Zach, a PTA and participant in our Uncaged Pathway program, successfully transitioned from a corporate job to operating his own clinic, challenging the notion that PTAs cannot manage their practices. With support from his girlfriend, a holistic mental health counselor, Zach navigated a pay cut and skepticism, particularly during COVID-19, which led him to expand into a wellness shop and personal training services. He'll share how he shifted his mindset from seeing himself merely as a PTA to becoming a proactive problem solver.


    In this episode, we'll cover the following topics with you:
    Zach’s transition from corporate life to owning a practice
    The role of mindset in overcoming professional challenges
    How COVID-19 influenced his entrepreneurial journey
    The importance of business acumen for clinicians
    Identifying and serving a specific niche
    The impact of mentorship and community support
    Uncaged Hack: "Go all in. I'm just going to lose my paycheck, lose my living to start my own business."

    Turn 'No' Into Yes: Overcoming Fear to Fuel Your Practice Growth

    Does the fear of failure hold you back? Have you ever wondered how the word "no" could propel you forward in your practice?
     
    In this FANTAWESOME episode of the Uncaged Clinician Podcast, I’m your host, David Bayliff. Today, we're addressing two common hurdles for clinicians and entrepreneurs: the fear of failure and the misunderstood power of "no."
     
    We'll explore how the fear of failure, often ingrained from childhood and reinforced by society, prevents many from pursuing their goals. I'll explain how transforming your view of "no" from a rejection to a redirection can fundamentally change your approach to challenges in your practice. 


    In this episode, I'll cover the following topics with you:
    The origins and impact of the fear of failure
    How the word "no" can halt your progress and how to reframe it as redirection
    Different types of potential clients and how to nurture those relationships
    Strategies to overcome fear and rejection to grow your practice
    Uncaged Hack: "You achieve more, learn more, as you go through that valley than if you're always up on the mountaintop."

Vivian PT ,

Value!!! Value!!! Value!!!

I had not listened to the Uncaged Clinician Podcast in a couple years! I recently started working on starting my own mobile business and have been listening weekly! I have been getting great ideas and put them into practice. I have been seeing results too. Went from no visits to 3 visits in 2 weeks and connected to 6 other business owners in my area to grow my network. Now, signed onto another business to be their PT of choice!! Thank you for the value bombs each week! Listen to this to grow your PT/OT/ST Biz!!
