Clinical or business success, comes not from just performing functions, but HOW functions are performed! ATs are well prepared for clinical success, but often lack the preparation for business success. We work with ATs to fill that business gap and enhance their opportunity for professional advancement.

"As a young professional taking a giant leap into the world of business recently, Clark’s direction, advice, and encouragement has been essential for me. The service he has provided for me and my business will be forever embedded in the foundation of my company and the service I provide to my clients, patients, and athletes. I am a novice in the world of business. While I find his knowledge and experience instrumental for my success, Clark has gone beyond just strategy and planning advice. He has recognized the entrepreneurial spirit I had shining dimly and helped give it the spark it needed. He has provided me honest advice and constructive input to my ideas and provided encouragement to keep pursuing my ideas when “imposter syndrome” sets in. I simply cannot express how grateful I am for the support he has provided to me thus far."
