Start Up. Step Up. Stand Out. The CashPT Lunch Hour w/ Paul Potter, PT

In this episode of the CashPT Lunch Hour I had the honor and privilege to interview Paul Potter. I first met Paul earlier this year at CSM 2015. He contacted me about meeting in person and being a guest on his podcast. Right off the bat, I knew Paul was genuinely interested in helping others. He is one of those people who has been in “the game” (the physical therapy one) for a long time and doesn’t seem at all salty or disillusioned about the profession or our future.

Paul is a physical therapist and mentor who lives in Nebraska with his wife, who is also a therapist. They have four daughters. For more than 35 years he successfully managed his own private practice with a cash-based medical fitness program. He authored both On Fire: Ignite Your Passion with a Cash Therapy Practice and Cash Therapy Practice: Professional Freedom in the New Healthcare Economy. He helps therapists fulfill their calling and create their own dream practice at his website and his Functional Freedom podcast.


In this episode of the CashPT Lunch Hour Paul talks about:

How he got started, during PT school, charging patients cash for physical therapy assessments over 35 years ago.

The biggest change in physical therapy over the last 30 years.

How to align your website and blog with who you are as a physical therapist.

How to come up with topics for your blog posts and what to write about.

How much money $$$ it takes to start a private practice.

The main reasons therapists are “Opting In” to the Cash-Based Therapy Model

The Old vs. New Healthcare Economy
