Welcome to Browdering.com and my first (official) blog post.
Over the past few years I have had an unbelievable opportunity in my role as a faculty member and now program director for Evidence In Motion’s Executive Program in Private Practice Management. I have been able to spend the past 5 years learning about the owners of over 300 private practices and their businesses. In the process of staying connected with many of our alumni, I came to the conclusion that the topic of leadership and management is just not something that has received enough attention.
I started this blog because this is an area that I am passionate about. The purpose of ‘browdering’ is to allow me a place to write about all the things I am learning as well as to drive discussions so that I can learn from you. I hope that the strange confluence of my background as an Air Force Academy graduate and Air Force physical therapist will combine with my experiences as an educator and private practice owner to create interesting content. Most of all, I hope that I can connect with other practice owners and help to create profitable paths for private practice physical therapy in what I think will be a challenging healthcare environment.
My friend Chris Stanley came up with the name ‘Browdering’ as I crowdsourced blog name ideas to my Facebook network. He even gave it a definition! This was perhaps one of the best compliments I’ve ever received and seemed to capture the essence of my mission… so I went with it.
My goal is to help PTs better manage their time, optimize their practice and lead their staff. Most of my posts will be in these areas. I will also feature several new courses on this site, including a Time Management course for PTs and PT Practice Owners that will launch in the next few months. Look for a post every Monday, with a scattering of other quotes, book recommendations, etc. mixed throughout.
I truly hope to connect with you, so please follow my blog, sign up for my mailing list (only cool things, I promise) and hit me up on social media as well. I am looking forward to getting to know you better and I hope to add value to both you and your practice.
