How to Make a Living AND Have a LIFE
The take-home pay of MOST practice owners is less than $160k. And that wouldn’t be all that bad if they were only putting in 20-30 hours per week, but that’s just simply not the case.
They are giving up a lot more than that.
(even if you are making more than $160k, read this entire email if you want to move higher)
Most work over 40 hours per week routinely! And sacrifice time with…
- their kids
- their spouse
- their friends
And even when they are present they are not fully there (you know what I mean?).
They’re always thinking about something related to the business.
They also sacrifice…
- Walks in the park
- Playing golf, fishing, hiking, playing the guitar,
- Road trips
- Smelling the roses
- and more.
So why is that?
If they are spending so much time on their business, why aren’t they making more?
(and the answer is not decreasing reimbursement)
I’ve come to know test there are 3 main reasons but I’m going to share one with you here…
Believe it or not, most practice owners typically think it’s part of the process and it must be done this way. Somewhere in their thinking they believe…
“You have to pay your dues.”
“You have to work hard and sacrifice to make a good living.”
“Nothing comes easy.”
These words sound awfully similar to what my mother and father would always say to me while growing up.
But the problem is I don’t want the life my mother and father had.
They are almost 80 years old now and they have a lot of regrets. They don’t have much in terms of money, achievements and pride.
They are very sorry to me (and they say it way too much) that they don’t have anything to leave me when they die…
I love them…(more than you know)…
But I don’t want their life.
What if I were to tell you that there’s a better way?
You don’t have to bust your ass-off all the time to make a living and a LIFE.
Because the fact-of-matter is, you don’t.
There’s a better way specifically for PT/OT’s in private practice.
