Inner Circle Updates mike reinold inner circle

My Last webinar recording on “5 Recommendations to Kick Start Your PT Career” is now available to watch. In this presentation, I talk about some of the important things that any student or new physical therapist or strength coach should focus on early in their career.  I’m amazed at some of the things I hear from students and see online.

This webinar will cover:

  • Why you shouldn’t sell your soul to one specific “system”
  • The ONE most important thing you need to work on to be effective
  • How to always be learning but also gaining skill, not just knowledge
  • Why you shouldn’t rush into starting a private practice
