Are you having difficulty setting goals and achieving them?

If so, then check out my new video on how to create meaningful goals that you can actually achieve. Most private practice physical therapy owners don’t have time to write business plans or plot out extensive, long-range goals. We’re too busy treating our patients, putting out fires, and running a practice.

Here, I provide you with a simple way to organize your time in the office by clearly articulating what you want. In this video, you’ll learn the first step for creating your path to greater growth.

“The better we are at knowing where we’re going, the more likely we’ll get there!”

After you watch the video, take a few minutes and write down what you want 12 months from now. Then, stay tuned for my next video; in it, I’ll share with you the second step in successful goal setting: taking your large, and possibly overwhelming, vision and breaking it down to bite-size pieces that are believable and achievable!


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.

    8 Pitfalls for Startup PT Practices
