Physical Therapy Clinic Owners are MASTERS at creating stability and freedom in their patients' lives, YET rarely experience it themselves. AND the first step to success is as simple as reaching out. PT ownership requires its owners to juggle a lot – productivity and efficiency from themselves and their teams, management of human resources, marketing, healthcare regulations, etc. – all to fulfill their dreams of business stability, freedom, and affecting lives for good. At the heart of it they are entrepreneurs, and entrepreneurs need resources to thrive, grow, and succeed. IF you’re a PT clinic owner and trying to get your clinic off the ground or grow your business, you can always learn from others who have been there, done that. PT Owners Club will introduce you to fellow PT Owners who will share their paths to stability, freedom, and success! Join the club!
