OTs Get Paid Podcast

Your business is growing, referrals are coming in, and you’re finding your stride… it’s exhilarating — until you realize you’re working 24/7. Womp. Womp. It’s like being on a treadmill and someone else is controlling the speed. Guess what? You need to hire someone (even if you don’t think you’re ready.) But… Who do you hire? How do you find them? What tasks will they do and what’s their title? How do you interview & what should you look for? Fear not OT entrepreneur — the OTs Get Paid podcast has answers.

You started your business to gain time, increase your income, and have a more significant impact on the lives of your clients… … but what happens when you want — or need — to take extended time off? I’m not just talking about taking a 3-day weekend. I’m talking about maternity leave, caring for aging parents, moving across the country, or dealing with your own health challenges.

It’s a scary part of entrepreneurship, and this week’s OTs Get Paid podcast has solutions....

Ep 49 - When High Achievers Get Stuck with Carlyn Neek show art Ep 49 - When High Achievers Get Stuck with Carlyn Neek

OTs Get Paid Podcast

This week I’m joined by Carlyn Neek, an OT and friend IRL. (That’s right, we’re friends offline as well as in the digital space!) Carlyn has a powerful message for OTs who are stuck, overthinking, and feeling inadequate. So if you’ve EVER encountered a challenge or felt inadequate, this episode is for you. (And if you’ve never struggled with this, I’d love to know your secrets!) “If we give ourselves permission to do the things we’re not good at we will grow tremendously. If we only do the things we're really good at we will stay the same.” — Carlyn Listen to this week’s...

Ep 48 - Growing Despite Life's Challenges with Cheryl Albright show art Ep 48 - Growing Despite Life's Challenges with Cheryl Albright

OTs Get Paid Podcast

This week’s podcast highlights an OT who started out just like you. A clinician who was doing the typical OT thing — exploring her interests and diving deeper into a treatment modality she loved. She also wanted more — more flexibility, more income, and more impact! (sound familiar?) And she didn’t have an easy road while building her business, in fact life seemed to throw a whole truckload of lemons at her all at once. She could have quit. Many of us would have… but she took one little step at a time, and just— kept—going. The OT I’m talking about is Cheryl Albright of Soul to...

Ep 47 - Why I Joined a Mastermind show art Ep 47 - Why I Joined a Mastermind

OTs Get Paid Podcast

So I did a thing… a pretty darn expensive thing. And even though it was scary, I don’t regret it a bit. You know I’m transparent about my business and money – I can’t be shy about money with a brand like OTs Get Paid! So – this week I’m dishing all about why I joined a Powerhouse Mastermind. Let me tell ya, it was a BIG investment! OTs Get Paid has taken off over the past year, and I knew I needed to keep the momentum going without being run over by it. (If you have a business you know what I mean. Nobody wants to be steamrolled by their business.) I believe what I teach, and...

Ep 46 - Buying and Selling an OT Business for growth with Nicole MacLean show art Ep 46 - Buying and Selling an OT Business for growth with Nicole MacLean

OTs Get Paid Podcast

I’ve noticed a double standard – and I’m calling it out. It’s normal for chiropractors or dentists to sell a practice, right? It’s an asset, so it can be sold… But why doesn’t this happen with OT clinics? Is this even a thing for OTs? Why does every aspiring OT business owner have to start from scratch? And if you’re moving away from a business, you just have to close it and get nothing for all your hard work? I’m saying – IT’S TIME FOR CHANGE. OT businesses are valuable. It’s time to normalize buying and selling them just like any other business. There’s value in...

OTs Get Paid Podcast

When you struck out on your own to start your business, did you try to pinch pennies and spend the absolute bare minimum? Maybe you looked at the online programs, communities, and coaching and thought – “Pfft, I don’t need that junk, who are these ‘experts’ anyway?” If that sounds like something you’d say, let me tell ya – you’re not the only one. This week’s podcast guest, Krista Frahm, is an OT who stepped out of patient care and into copywriting. She tried to start her business using only freebies, grit, and problem-solving. You can probably guess how that worked out…...

S2 E27 - Breaking Out of the Time-Money Trap show art S2 E27 - Breaking Out of the Time-Money Trap

OTs Get Paid Podcast

Are you creating your business so you can gain more time, more money… or more freedom? I’ve noticed a theme running through the OTs Get Paid Facebook group, my DMs, and even in the 100K Club coaching program. Your revenue is tied to your time. And you can’t step back long enough to work on your business (either by yourself or through coaching) because your income immediately drops off when you take your foot off the gas. I feel this in my bones, and it inspired this week’s podcast, along with a joy-sparking opportunity that came my way. This time-money trap keeps so many OTs stuck in...

OTs Get Paid Podcast

Which comes first for your business – clients or a website? I’m taking a stance in this week’s podcast. It may not be what you’re expecting from a conversation between an OT Coach and someone who writes websites for a living. Jenny is an OT that jumped into the deep end of entrepreneurship when she realized her clinic schedule would prevent her from signing her kids up for swim lessons. She broke out of the traditional track and is now an OT getting paid as a copywriter. She uses her OT knowledge and love of problem-solving to write websites – for other OTs! Branding is so much more...
