Don't Make This Mistake When Trying To Get More Daycare Clients For Your Therapy Practice

2/24/2020
The transcript from the podcast is below. Any grammatical, punctuation or non-sense errors are totally Google Transcriptions fault. Any brilliance is by the grace of God. 😉 My therapy business has been providing therapy for children in daycare's since 2006. When I first graduated OT school, I took a job with a developmental daycare that was in 1997. So for over 20 years, I've had something to do with therapy in a preschool, and I've learned a ton. I created a course on how to get more daycare clients. Now, what's interesting here is when a therapist figures out my system of how to get more daycare clients they want to go Hung-Ho, all in to get as many daycare's on board with their private practice at the same time, but this is a mistake. What I recommend in my course is that certainly you can approach multiple daycares at the same time to see if they're willing to work with you but once one of those daycares agrees to work with you, go with just that one. Focus on that one day care and if anybody else comes online interested in working with you ask them to wait just a little bit because you're busy. You've got another day care that you're trying to provide this service for. Now that seems a little bit counter intuitive. Why don't I get as many kids as many daycares as many preschools online at the same time? Here's the reason. You're going to overextend yourself and you're going to get too busy. You're going to stretch yourself too thin when you're trying to do all this good stuff for multiple locations. You're going to fail, you're going to slip and those daycares are going to notice. Once they notice they're going to think, "well, this therapist is really slacking" and they're not going to invite you back. You don't want to burn that bridge. That's why you want to do one at a time. Do a good job at that one place all the way through before you go to the next day care. So my advice to you is to not stretch yourself too thin. Don't promise the world to these different daycares that you can make this happen for their daycare because if you don't have the time to allocate to all these different facilities the daycare is not going to invite you back and that's going to ruin your reputation in your area. And guess what? You live and die by your reputation in the world of business. Focus on one daycare. Do it really well from start to end. I have a course on how to get more daycare clients. I show you exactly how to do this. I give you all the tools that I use and walk you through and help you follow through with it. Go over to StartaTherapyPractice.com/daycare. You can sign up for this course. It's a live course. It's a multi lesson course. I have to limit enrollment because it's live and I want to make sure that I give good attention to each of the therapist who attend Go to StartaTherapyPractice.com/daycare If you have any questions, let me know. Alright until next time Godspeed to you and your practice.

Artificial Intelligence - The Future Of Therapy And Your Private Practice

1/20/2020
How can we Market ourselves to this potential Market? I think First we have to point out the difficulties that this new technology will bring. We can start creating innovation of how to merge the technology with a real physical activity. I think that that's a perfect place for a therapist to be. It's the internet of things. IOT Can we capitalize on how the overwhelming lure of technology is going to cause real health and mental problems? Maybe real life activities like planting a garden that's a real activity that therapist can engage in with their clients with their potential clients. That's where I'm challenging you as therapists to engage our future therapy. Therapists must point out the pitfalls with the technology and merge the technology with real-world activities. A lot of this is about accountability. Can we help our clients be accountable to what we're assigning them with their goals to break away from the technology? Can we help our patients have a healthy interface with the technology? How are we going to help them be accountable with that? That's a therapist role. That's a niche for you as a therapist in private practice. Sign up for my free webinar on how to start your own therapy business at StartaTherapyPractice.com/webinars

My Goals For Next Year And How I Set Them

12/30/2019
I'm going to suggest that we need to set radically big goals some goals that are pretty far out there that would really stretch us to achieve that goal because here's the key. Our brain can't work on figuring out how to achieve a goal unless we put it into our brain. Goals not stated and written down are dreams that don't get accomplished. Have a listen for my thoughts on setting and achieving goals. Godspeed!

He is teaching workshops and consulting with clinics and other facilities about their sensory spaces. Check out his website Sensory Digest.

While struggling with Sensory Processing Disorder himself, he knew that he wanted to help others dealing with the same obstacles he was facing everyday. Not knowing what Sensory Processing Disorder was back then, Alex became his own therapist by exploring Sensory Integration inspired therapeutic activities. It was natural for him to not only help himself but also his friends and family. At a very young age Alex knew he would help people improve their quality of life while making it fun and therapeutic, and that is exactly what he is doing today!
