Who Is James?
"When my first practice was failing, I tried to get help. I contacted the APTA, past instructors, and other PT's in private practice, but no one seemed to want to help (or give up much information). Maybe they didn't know. Maybe they were fearful (Maybe they didn't like me). I don't know. This was back in 1997 so even though I searched online not much was available.
But I learned a lot about myself. I discovered how strong I could be. So I tried again with a new determination and drive. I vowed that when I figured it out, I was going to share it with everyone. That became my mission...and it's still my mission today to figure it out and share it. Now after 7 practices and over 15 years of coaching other practice owners to independence and freedom, I no longer doubt. I am stronger." -James
Here's a thought...
From the day we are born, we learn everything of importance from someone else. How to read, drive a car, open a bank account, and more. Why then do we think we can operate a successful business without learning how from someone else?
No single person or entity has helped me grow as a professional more than James Ko and the IndeFree Association. With his mentorship, we have grown our business exponentially. He has also helped me grow as a person, coaching on growth in a manner that simply works. If you listen, and apply, you Will grow both professionally and personally. THANK YOU!! ”
