Re: [physical_therapists_in_business] Re: New Member, New Resource and a Question
- Thanks so much for your reply and feedback! I'm going to try to market this book to practicioners as well as students, and see what reception it gets. I'm fortunate to have Lippincott as a publisher. Take care!----- Original Message -----From: RSGPTSent: Thursday, February 12, 2004 9:37 AMSubject: [physical_therapists_in_business] Re: New Member, New Resource and a QuestionIn response to your question, I don't recall little if any regarding
economics, finances, business plans etc. Most likely since most "New
Grads" were not going to enter private practice or be in a position
which would require that type of info since we typically were
expected to start out as "new grads." Not to mention that very few
of the PT's I've ran across have the interest or drive to put that
much work into becoming a business owner. In my experience however,
I've been bit by the entrepraneur bug and am always looking to learn
from anyone who is willing to teach or provide info that might be
valuable. The small business administrations (www.sba.gov) has
proven to be a valuable place also. I've been researching this
off/on for almost two years and at some point will make the jump into
practice for myself and my wife (who's an OTR/L). So, thank you for
the book info. I'm planning on ordering a book via the APTA's
private practice section on starting a practice also.
