063 Holistic Physical Therapy Practice With Nate Kloosterman

Nate Kloosterman

Nate Kloosterman

Physical Therapist

Nate Kloosterman was the second therapist to buy my ebook How to Start and Run a Therapy Practice. I was flattered when he contacted me in the early stages of starting his therapy practice to bounce some ideas off of me.

Have a listen and see how Nate has created a brick and mortar PT practice that is holistic in its approach and personal in its service. I really like what he is doing.

Nate is offering a health coaching system as part of his wellness program at his clinic and he is willing to help other therapists implement a turnkey Health Coaching program similar to his. Just email him at  physiopointtherapy@gmail.com.

Nate is a family man with great faith and is just an all-around great guy.

62 Cash Practice From Scratch

Paul Potter

Paul Potter

Physical Therapist

Paul Potter has been a close friend of mine for some time now. Recently he and I hung out at the WebPT Ascend conference in Ft. Worth, Texas.

He tried to get me to sit on one of the live bulls in front of the Stock Yard rodeo arena. I’m from Arkansas. I let him know this wasn’t my first rodeo.

Paul knows what it’s like to begin a start-up for less than $100 when he lacked the necessary finances and self-confidence.

Now he has created a course to help therapists start a cash therapy business. Click to check out Paul’s Cash Practice From Scratch Course.
