Chad Prince has had a long career in Physical Therapy and this episode is essentially an interview for his new book: Physical Therapy Career & Salary Guide: Avoid the Income Ceiling and Put Your Career in the FASTLANE.
This was the last of 3 ‘reverse interviews’ I did in which I was put on the hot seat and had to answer questions rather than ask them. And it was a fun one!
We cover a ton of topics and especially dive into my advice for those considering starting a private practice AND those who would like to start an online business to generate additional income.
In this episode, I discuss these topics related to the earning potential of a physical therapy career:
Your About page says that you worked in private practice settings before opening Carter Physiotherapy. Will you describe the moment when you realized that not only were you going to open your own, solo practice, but that it would also be a cash-based clinic?
For physical therapists, running a cash-based practice is outside of the box—but having an online business is taking entrepreneurialism to another level. What inspired you to go down this road, write your ebook, and start your blog and websites?
You’ve developed specialized skills as a PT (MTC, CSCS), you’ve positioned yourself as an authority on cash-based clinics, and you’ve developed a platform with many subscribers. It’s pretty obvious that you are driven. No doubt there are milestones you are working to reach. Will you share some of your goals, and more importantly, tell about where you were in relation to your current progress when you set them?
What advice do you have for those who have hit the income ceiling in their physical therapy career, and who look at what you are doing and think they want start a business of their own? Whether it’s a private practice OR an online business.
