About the Author

Jamey Schrier, PT, DPT, provides business coaching services to private practice owners. Jamey has been a PT business owner himself since 1998, so he has plenty of experience in dealing with the challenges that every owner faces: generating more new patients, overseeing financials, managing staff, and handling the stress of juggling many different roles.

Before automating his practice using systems and grade-A staff, Jamey was working 60-plus hours a week, missing his kids’ events, and worrying about pulling in enough money to make ends meet. The stress kept building, which caused his confidence to plummet. Nowadays, Jamey uses his 13-plus years of PT experience and vast business knowledge to provide one-of-kind courses that show practitioners how to double patient volume and increase take-home pay by 50%—all in less than six months.
