It’s frightening when this can happen to a knowledgeable physical therapist.
If you read this blog you know I’m a big Joseph Mercola fan. Call him an alarmist if you want but, I happen to agree a lot more than I disagree. Please take a minute and read this.
It’s not very often I get the urge to quote someone like Ashton Kutcher but I’ll make an exception:
“the sexiest thing in the world is being really smart. And being thoughtful and really generous. Everything else is crap, I promise you. It’s just crap that people try to sell you to make you feel like less, so don’t buy it. Be smart, be thoughtful, be generous.”

5- Do you have three months of living expense in this account?
Bottom line, if the answer to any of these is no, you might not be ready to be in business for yourself.
Here’s a great read from Alwyn Cosgrove and Jason Ferrugia called The Business
