Trial and Error is NOT a business plan. This 2 part webinar was geared specifically for PTs OTs and STs therapists in the beginning stages of starting a professional private practice. Starting a private practice is a multi faceted process in which the end product is an entity that matches both your business capabilities and your professional abilities. The purpose of this webinar is to offer a concrete, step by step approach to discussing all aspects of starting a practice.
The webinar included how to identify needs in the marketplace, reviewing the legal forms that a practice can take, minimum start-up requirements and costs, identifying marketing strategies and contacts to build a referral base, beginning billing set-ups, and ideas to sustain your practice once it is up and running.
