    Hey Aaron,

    My question is how simple is it to build up a clientele with a CashPT practice? I’ve heard you mention/talk about stories of PT’s moving to a small town where they didn’t know anyone and being able to earn plenty of money in the first year. I’ve also heard that having clients is one of the big limiting factors in being able to start your own cash practice, especially right out of school. What do you think is the reality of the situation?

      Hey Austin,
      Thanks for your comment and question. It’s simple but not easy to get rocking and rolling. If you have the proven formula and systems you can make it happen. Quite a few of my coaching clients have built 6 figure businesses within a year out of PT school. It just takes hards work, dedication and the right formula plus a no quit attitude 😀
      I’ve got a podcast coming out with Ben Bagge in a few weeks, he did $145K his first year and in year 2 is on track to generate $750K and Derek Nielsen did something very similar opening in a brand new town https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=35OCaqANhTA
      The reality is if you want it and will do everything to get it you can have it 😀
