At the heart of it they are entrepreneurs, and entrepreneurs need resources to thrive, grow, and succeed.IF you’re a PT clinic owner and trying to get your clinic off the ground or grow your business, you can always learn from others who have been there, done that. PT Owners Club will introduce you to fellow PT Owners who will share their paths to stability, freedom, and success! Join the club!
