On this week’s episode of the Healthy Wealthy and Smart Podcast, Dr. Jamey Schrier joins me to discuss the tools necessary for an automated private practice. Jamey is a private practice physical therapy owner whose mission is to teach clinic owners exactly how to free themselves from their grueling daily work schedule, how to make more money and have more free time. With his book The Automated Practice: Success Secrets for Working Less and Earning More which has been an Amazon #1 best seller and his online education course, The Automated Private Practice, he has helped hundreds of owners with concrete strategies to automate and grow their business.
In this episode, we discuss:
-How Jamey transitioned from a clinician to a successful private practice owner
-The top three things that challenge private practice owners and what to do about them
-Why successful automation is mostly about building the right team for you practice
-The tools and technology Jamey uses to boost efficiency and grow his practice
-And much, much more!
Clarity is a key when transitioning from a clinician mindset to an owner mindset. Jamey stresses, “What do you want and how fast do you want it? Because we are in control, nothing else is controlling our future but us.”
Jamey believes that practical leadership is not accomplished through self-sacrifice but rather building a great team and effectively delegating duties. He states, “We can't do it all. So swallow your egos, swallow your pride, and be the real leader in your practice and bring great people on your team. Get people to take stuff off your plate that you don't like the most. Do it tomorrow—I promise you, it will come back to you 100 fold. “
If your goal is to ultimately automate your practice, one of Jamey’s biggest pieces of wisdom is, “You are not here to serve your business, your business is here to serve you. Build your business around you—build it around your superpowers, your natural ability, your passion. Build it around you and it will be the most successful business possible because you don’t serve the business well by doing things you don’t like, and frankly you’re not good at.”
For more information about Jamey:
In 2004, Jamey Schrier was facing the soul-crushing struggles of private practice ownership. He couldn’t figure out how to grow his business without sacrificing his family, income or time.
Armed with an insatiable curiosity, Jamey invested the next 9 years and over $300,000 to learn how to automate his practice. At the end of his journey, Jamey finally discovered the formula to creating a self-managed, profitable and stable practice that allowed more time with his family and more time to work “on” his business.
Today, Jamey is sharing his methodology and what he learned to practice owners all across the country. His book, The Automated Practice: Success Secrets for Working Less and Earning More, has been an Amazon #1 best seller and his online education course, The Automated Private Practice, has helped hundreds of owners with concrete strategies to automate and grow their business.
Today, Jamey spends most of his time teaching practice owners how to apply his methodologies through his revolutionary program called Lighthouse Leader.
As Jamey tells the story, a Lighthouse Leader is a professional practice owner committed to achieving personal freedom from the day the day stresses of business ownership without sacrificing income or quality of service. His unique approach combines sound business principles with best practices that he learned over 20 years in business. Jamey’s true gift is in his ability to share his wisdom in a fun, easy to understand and implement, way.
Jamey lives in the Washington D.C. area with his wife, Colleen, and two kids, Jack and Gracie. When not having fun with his family, you can find him on the basketball court, the golf course or reading in his favorite spot on the porch.
