Whether you are new grad or have owned your own practice for several years, most of us wish we had more business expertise. When I see the phenomenal platform growth of  Michael Hyatt, Pat Flynn or Tony Robbins I feel like a chump when it comes to business growth.

Most therapists are not trained to be businesspeople. Most of what I learned about business was from my father who successfully operated a small business for over thirty years. I was blessed to have several wise business mentors when I started my practice.

I wonder if a MBA would have prevented some of the pitfalls and mistakes I made in building my private practice. Maybe you’re considering going back to school to earn your MBA before you open up your own practice. Well, before you do you might want to wait till you listen to this episode.

In this episode I have the privilege sit down with Dr. Joe Simon to talk about his new book, The Private Practice MBA, The Rise of the Medpreneur and his journey to building a diversified business that has multiple income streams.

Dr. Joe Simon is a husband and father of two children. He’s been in private practice for over 15 years. He is an entrepreneur who is in perpetual pursuit of new opportunities in health and wellness.

 Dr. Simon shares from his wealth of experience of helping over numerous physical therapists, dentists, physicians, chiropractors, and acupuncturists create, market and grow private practices. He has a deep passion for helping others grow their practices through business and marketing coaching services.
In fact he had so much to cover we had to divide the interview into 2 episodes. In today episode we cover:
  • Dr. Simon’s rise from his private practice clinic Manhattan Physical Therapy and Pain Center to his successful Private Practice Business Academy
  • Medpreneur– What is it?
  • What changes have occurred in the healthcare economy that have led to the rise of the medpreneur.
  • How to find your market niche–community, service, resource profit
  • The lessons Joe learned from starting his wife’s cash-based medical practice
  • How to develop multiple income streams for your practice
