Iris is simply the best! Whatever stage of your business you are in, you can’t beat the sound advice and vast experience she provides. I purchased many of her templates when my business was in its infant stages a few years ago. Why reinvent the wheel, right? Her trainings and webinars throughout the years have kept my business on course for managing issues and obstacles I may not have previously considered. Now at a stage where I am scaling my business, her 1:1 consulting has been invaluable. She takes a vested interest to understand the intricacies of your business, the goals, and the relevant legalities. I felt 1000x more confident and prepared taking my next leaps after 1:1 consulting and I look forward to collaborating more in the future!
Iris Kimberg is extremely professional and fully transparent. She is smart, wise, honest and great fun to work with. Iris is an OT, PT, professor and successful business owner who keeps emotions at bay and zeros in on the key components to making a deal work or not work. She is not about the money, but about making her client as logical, organized, informed and reasonable in preparing for the management or sale of their company. She stays true to her role as consultant and advisor, having lawyers or accountants brought in only when necessary. Iris worked to advise me during my years running a successful, free-standing pediatric private practice in order to build and manage it well. Her leading questions led me to make informed and independent decisions. The practice flourished. When it came to selling my practice she worked with me every step of the process, from timing, asking me the right questions, informing me about the valuation process and sales options, and trends in the marketplace. She helped me do a lot of the leg work, prepped me for negotiations, cautioned me to barriers throughout the process and helped to keep expenses to a minimum. In doing so, the timing and need for costly legal and accounting advisors was avoided until the deal was practically sealed. Her consultations ultimately helped me successfully and satisfactorily sell my practice. In a nano second I would use her over and over again to advise in practice management and practice sale.
Iris has been a great help in consulting with regarding the sale of my physical therapy practices on two occasions. She was able to give me a sense of what seemed appropriate, an overview of the marketing and sale process, and an informed ear to listen to my questions and concerns along the way. She has also been able to assist with recommending or providing various useful resources related to the process.
Iris was very helpful in the sale of my practice. Through negotiation with the buyer she got me more money than I got on my own not only for the purchase price but also for my employment contract following the sale.
Iris was an enormous assistant in selling my practice 5 years ago. She guided me into valuation of space, materials, helped to identify other asserts, and certainty brought forward vetted several serious potential clients. My practice was in contract within 6 weeks. My only suggestion would be to limit potential clients conversations with Iris to a total of 60 minutes as less “secure” individuals eat up a lot of time that costs the seller dearly.
I recently worked with Iris Kimberg on the sale of my therapy practice. She was professional, knowledgeable and conducted herself with integrity throughout the entire process. There is no other name in the industry with the reputation she has earned over the years. I recommend her services with utmost confidence.
When I decide to sell my business, I had no idea where to start and what would I need, Iris gave me hope and direction. She explained everything and guided me step by step. My package looked very professional when potential buyers showed up. I am very grateful for her support.
When I was approached by a company interested in buying my physical therapy practice, I was completely taken by surprise and totally out of my element. I knew it was an opportunity I didn’t want to mishandle. I had heard a webinar Iris had done for the APTA Private Practice Section and decided to reach out to her. During our phone consultation I was immediately impressed by the depth of her knowledge and how articulate she is. Iris valued the practice and guided me through every step until the deal was completed. We communicated often, by phone and email, and I was impressed by the quality and timeliness of her responses.
I contacted Iris this year to kick of 2018 on as solid ground as possible. My main focus for our first chat was look check our parent intake paperwork and make sure things were tight, legal (of course), and if she had any insight on how to have a more effective payment system with our clients. She provided detailed notes that were easy to understand on each page and then participated in a phone call where she allowed me to pick her brain AND she reviewed and explained her notes. Highly recommend. Despite having some areas that needed improving, she helped me feel empowered versus dwell on the mistake! Also check out her website for premade forms. Wish I would have found those LONG ago.
Iris mentored me on how to launch my online course "Toilet Training Success Academy" for pediatric providers and has had a huge impact on the important decisions I made during my business process. Because if you really think about it, a successful business is all about the small decisions you make every day. What I enjoy the most and find the most value in during our mentorship meetings, is the fact the Iris is straightforward, no sugar coating, and straight business-oriented coming from a person who knows their stuff! Thank you Iris!
I've known Iris for over 20 years through her courses and private sessions and she's always been the consummate business coach. She has mitigated and solved the many challenges that come with owning a private practice. She always comes up with practical, smart and immediate solutions that are derived from her own success and exceptional judgement. An extra bonus is that she's exceptionally patient and a lovely person.
