Jarod Carter PT, DPT, MTC opened Carter Physiotherapy in Spring 2010, a 100% cash-based clinic where he provides an hour of one-on-one care in every treatment session.

In this episode, we discuss:

-Jarod’s top strategies for acquiring new patients and clients

-How to gain different referral sources in your area

-Why investing in video content has helped boost Jarod’s practice

-Investing time on the initial phone consultation for lead conversion

“Video can be really, really powerful.”

 

“Giving them more than one option to connect with you and request information or start a conversation is huge.”

“Start retirement investing right away.”

-And so much more!

 

F Scott Feil:

“There’s so many different ways to leverage any of your degrees.”

“There’s been a wish for more interprofessional communication and collaboration.”

“Get rid of lectures and let’s just get out into the clinic and do more rounding and clinical learning with the other professions in the real setting.”

“There just needs to be more interprofessionalism amongst healthcare.”

“We just need to get back to patient centric care.”

“We are finally coming into our own and we’re owning our field as movement experts and movement and musculoskeletal specialists.”

If you’ve got an idea and you’re afraid of criticism—just go out and do it, try it. Worst case scenario you’ll learn from it.”

 

Stephanie Weyrauch:

“There’s this weird limbo that a new graduate has.”

“Trying to improve problem solving and critical reasoning within the student population is really important.”

“There are just as many good clinical instructors as there are bad clinical instructors.”

“You should be more worried about how the student perceives you as a teacher than how you perceive the student.”

“We need more academics.”

“Don’t be afraid to ask for feedback.”

 

Brandon Poen:

“We cannot deny that finances are involved and run a lot of it too.”

“It’s not the DPT program that necessarily sets the cost, it’s the people and the finances above them.”

“There has to be this broad exposure because at the end of the day people are going to choose different routes.”

“Your network equals your net worth.”

On this episode of the Healthy Wealthy and Smart Podcast, I welcome Joel Erway onto the show to discuss how to position yourself as an expert. Joel helps coaches, experts, and consultants increase revenue through simple online sales webinars by showing them how to charge what they're actually worth. #WorthIt

In this episode, we discuss:

-The mindset of an expert

-Why you should lead with an offer to solve your audiences’ pain or pleasure point

-How to generate noise for a new launch

-The importance of authority positioning

-And so much more!

 

To be an expert you have to change your mindset to reflect that you have something of value to offer. Joel reassures, “We are all experts in something.”

 

Being an expert does not mean you have to know more than everyone on a topic. Joel has found that, “Expertise is relative,” and, “You really just have to be one step ahead of whoever your ideal customer is.”

 

Content producers build a consistent audience over time where ultimately, “There’s so much pent up demand if you have any sort of good will with your audience.”

 

There is untapped potential for revenue generation within your audience and Joel stresses, “Make the damn offer.”

On this episode of the Healthy Wealthy and Smart Podcast, I invite Eric Robertson on the show to talk about residencies and fellowships. Dr. Eric Robertson, PT, DPT, OCS, FAAOMPT, is the director of Graduate PT Education for Kaiser Permanente in Northern California, where he directs the orthopaedic residency and orthopaedic manual physical therapy fellowship programs. He is also an adjunct associate professor of clinical physical therapy at the University of Southern California. Dr. Robertson serves on the executive board of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Manual Physical Therapists as secretary and is a Fellow of that organization. He is board certified in orthopaedic physical therapy and has extensive experience in post-graduate clinical education and hybrid educational models. He’s current an associated editor for the Journal of Physical Therapy Education and a member of the American Physical Therapy Association’s media corps.

In this episode, we discuss:

-The evolution of residency programs

-The future standards for residency and fellowship training

-Sustainable business and educational models in the face of growing student debt

-Is it ok to be a generalist in physical therapy?

-And so much more!

 

Residency education covers a wide variety of clinical settings and patient populations in comparison to fellowship programs. Eric stresses, “You see a lot more specialties represented.”

 

There has been growing interest among new graduates to hone their clinical skills as Eric has found that, “People who are graduating PT school are a lot more aware of the role of residency as part of their clinical and professional development.”

 

Orthopedic residencies are facing new challenges as Eric believes, “The supply seems to be exceeding the demand.”

 

There is not yet a clear delineation between residency and fellowship programs and their unique challenges as Eric states, “Let’s talk about residency programs as its own bucket and let’s talk about fellowship programs as its own bucket.”

On this episode of the Healthy Wealthy and Smart Podcast, Jenna Kantor, DPT guest hosts and interviews Alex Engar and Will Boyd on creating a partnership online. Healthy Funnel is a healthcare digital marketing company created by Dr. Will Boyd and Dr. Alex Engar - Two physical therapists who are insanely passionate about helping other PTs grow their dream business without tech overwhelm!

In this episode, we discuss:

-How Alex and Will began their partnership through online media

-Digital marketing in healthcare

-Why your partnership should have a shared vision

-Alex and Will’s first in person meet up

-And so much more!

 

While communicating across social media, Alex and Will stumbled into an amazing partnership with one another. Alex and Will believe, “If we teach each other and kind of team up, maybe something good could come out of it.”

 

Take advantage of social media and the connections that are possible as Alex and Will remind that, “Communication happens so easily online now, if you let it.”

 

Starting a partnership is almost like being in a work marriage as Alex and Will recommend, “Find someone who shares your ultimate end goals.”

 

For more information on Alex:

As a Doctor of Physical Therapy, I’m an enthusiastic human movement expert with a passionate focus on fighting sedentarism. You didn’t know sedentarism was a thing? That’s a shame, because it’s probably killing you...

I’m a fiercely energetic believer in our own power to create the life we want. I’m always learning and never afraid to back down from a good challenge. I know that you can’t reach your potential without pushing your limits.

With an unyielding disposition to work hard until the job’s done, I'm comfortable setting and accomplishing goals that drive progress towards both personal and organizational change. I believe in thorough planning with a dash of early morning inspiration to get things done in the best way.

I’ve been a leader in pushing forward multiple endeavors, crossing a wide variety of disciplines. From leading the charge towards interprofessional diabetes management to exploding hydrogen balloons in front of hundreds of happily screaming kids, my skill-set easily adapts to present needs.

In short, I’m an optimistic, personable, trustworthy guy emboldening those around me to positively challenge their perception of what they can accomplish. I make amazing things happen, while having a blast the entire time.

For more information on Will:

My path into the health world has been a rather unorthodox one. Once an English teacher working abroad, I took the LSAT expecting to go to Law School before having a revelation: I couldn’t sit all day. My next move was to head back to school and try to get into Physical Therapy School. I’ve been a lifelong competitive soccer player and advocate for maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Some of my current interests include treating patients with chronic pain, self-development research, and learning the cash-based practice principles that are out there.

For more information on Jenna:
