Big Mistakes Made by Most Private Practices>>>


“It’s not WHERE you are, but in which direction you are going that matters most.” -James

Change Your Mindset

The change from the road of failure to the road of success is usually accomplished with a MINOR shift in perspective.

Most physical therapists are pretty stubborn. So stubborn in fact that great treasures waiting under their very noses are often overlooked–when just seeing things a little differently is all it takes to getting them. Great example in video below.



“Is your practice REMARKABLE or like all the rest?”

If you are the same as everyone else, no one will talk about you. If you are BETTER  than others, some may talk about you. But if you are DIFFERENT than others, everyone will talk about you.

In Private Practice


Building a Physical Therapy Private Practice
That is Truly “Independent & Free”

I asked over 2,000 physical and occupational therapy private practice owners over the past 12 years, a simple question…

“What do you like LEAST about having your own private practice?”

The top 3 responses were:

1. “Insurance reimbursement decline and problems!” 2. “Marketing for new referrals!” 3. “Long hours and late nights!” When asked, “What do you like MOST?” the #1 answer was an astounding, “The independence and freedom!”

IMPORTANT: Read this entire section, if you are serious about gaining true financial independence and professional freedom through private practice success.

If you want true independence and freedom, your private practice must maximize cash flow from insurances as well as cash paying patients, energize referrals from physicians and patient family and friends. And your practice must not require long hours and late nights. It should make you money regardless of you being there or not! The fact-of-the-matter is, building a successful therapy private practice today is very different than ever before. It’s nothing like it used to be. And since the rules have changed so much, it’s no wonder why many practices are failing. It’s much like building a house of the future. Since you’ve never done it before, you can’t really expect to know how. You may know enough to buy concrete, lumber, drywall, nails, etcetera but when it comes time to putting it all together, without a blueprint can you expect to succeed? Okay, for those who are very handy and resourceful, you may get some of the remodel started, or maybe the foundation and framing going, but getting everything else to fit right and be sturdy…no way!  At some point you’ll realize the need for a detailed professional plan. Physical therapists are very stubborn. Some take years of suffering and bleeding before realizing they NEED HELP. Sadly for some it comes much too late.

We offer you the blueprint to private practice success in physical and occupational therapy

Anyone can teach you about internet marketing, sending newsletters, properly billing insurances–heck, we teach you that too, but building a practice for real success goes way beyond that. It involves laying a strong foundation of consistent new referral flow, positive cash flow, and quality patient treatment flow, automatically. IndeFree can teach you better than any other, guaranteed. You can waste years trying to figure it out on your own (like most private practices)—through blogs, books, audios, videos, asking other people who don’t even own private practices, waiting, with no guarantee . . . or you can get guidance and coaching from a pro and get the know-how to true success instantly! Most of the teachings out there now are things everyone else is already doing. Many are copy-cat consultants that are just trying to make a buck. True success will only come when you start doing things that NO ONE ELSE IS EVEN THINKING ABOUT! Your practice will only be as good as the decisions you make while developing it.  Make a wise one and get coaching today. Your future depends on it.

Important for those ALREADY in private practice:

As you begin learning the step-by-step methods, you may be surprised to find how instantly it can be applied with referrals and profits increasing steadily over time. To help you understand how this is possible and why all physical therapists aren’t doing it, here are some facts:

  1. First, the change from the road of failure to the road of success is usually accomplished with a MINOR shift in perspective.
  2. Second, most physical therapists are pretty stubborn. So stubborn in fact that great treasures waiting under their very noses are often overlooked–when just seeing things a little differently is all it takes to getting them.


“When you change the way you look at things.. the things you look at change.”

Each coaching option, found below, will take you through a step-by-step program that:

-Is easy to learn, easy to apply -Doesn’t cost much money -Produces immediate results -Brings instant profit Simply put – choose an option, get the learning, go and do it! It’s that simple. Could you ever make a wiser decision? The demand for our services is skyrocketing–more than ever before! A lot of money is to be made in private practice but most physical therapists don’t know how! That’s why you see non-therapists and corporations flocking into get a piece of the pie. Part of the problem is many are holding onto the old idea of what a “private practice” should be and most therapists lack true business skills. Despite direct access spreading throughout the country, we as physical therapists will never gain true autonomy and strength as independent practitioners until we learn how to work together, with our fellow brothers and sisters, in succeeding in the private sector doing things our way, the right way. My name is James Ko, and I’m a physical therapist in private practice. I’m also the president and founder of IndeFree.  Our affordable coaching programs are an affordable and easy way for you to master the skills of driving consistent new referrals from patients and physicians, commanding high pay from insurances and cash patients, and automating daily operations.

You’ll become an expert in private practice as you gain information and teaching unavailable anywhere else. 

Only physical therapists with true experience and success with the skills necessary for today’s climate can share the insights and secrets necessary to help other therapists succeed. The best part there’s a No Risk Guarantee that comes with every coaching program. Most physical therapy private practices across the country are operating at only 5% of the success that is available to them.  Only 5% out of the hundred that is possible in terms of their space size, potential clientele, revenue, cash flow, referrals and profits! There is only one number one measure that I look for when performing an analysis of a physical therapy business (or occupational therapy business), to determine the “successfulness” of it.  Surprisingly, it’s not the number of patients seen per week, or new patients intaked per month, or even the revenue collected. These number can be good but yet the owner NOT be happy, or be able to sleep at night. There is only ONE quantifiable measurement that can truly indicate how stable and strong the practice is and will be… And I’ll REVEAL it to you when we meet. Just knowing the answer will transform your practice!

I look forward to meeting you soon!
