I’m in charge of making the dressing and sweet potatoes today, but before I dive into that, I want to list a few things that I’m thankful for on this Thanksgiving Day… as they relate to my physical therapy practice and the cash-based business model 🙂
I’m thankful for my patients, who appreciate and support my work, and they validate this liberating approach to PT practice. The are adamant about feeling, moving, and performing at their highest potential; and are willing to dedicate more than the average person to do so.
I’m thankful for my family and friends who support me even with my tendency to go against the grain.
I’m thankful for my admin assistant who allows me to focus on my patients and the aspects of my business that I enjoy.
I’m thankful for all of you who follow my cash-based practice blog posts, spread the word about the cash-based movement, and give me consistent inspiration to continue putting this information out there.
If you’re not happy with your practice because of 3rd-party payor nonsense, and you would like to be thankful for the above things next year, there’s no time like the present to start making changes. Don’t wait for everything to be perfectly in order… there will always be risk, but please consider that the biggest risk of all may actually be to change nothing and stay in a business model that makes you unhappy and eventually unprofitable.
