The Right Time to Quit

I’ve always said, you only loose when you quit, so don’t quit.
Today we’re talking about when to call it quits

Or when to pivot and keep your focus on what’s working

How do you know when to call it quits?

It’s when you’re spending more time and energy on a project than it is giving you back in return or has a potential to give you in the future.

Last year, I was asked for a divorce.

It rocked my world.

I had joined the Black Belt mastermind, built the systems and then when I had no capacity to operate in my business the systems helped me continue to grow.

The connections in the group helped me through the process and gave me a safe place to go to ask for help when I needed it in my business.

The crisis is not the reason to quit. It’s the signal that it’s time for you to go deeper.

You can solve for the last person but you can’t do it for them

You can solve for the last person but you can’t do it for them

You can lead a horse to water but you can’t make him drink

There’s no man on a white horse coming to save you.

Hurt people hurt people and broken people are broken for a reason.

“I don’t fix broken birds.”

If you don’t succeed they are going to die in your hands anyway. If you do it’s just going to fly away.” – Andrew Tate

Solve for the last person.

Winners aspire to do better and make you better at the same time.

We’ve built a step by step blueprint to get to 6 figures and a road map and game plan to take your existing business to multiple 6 figures and 7.

I’ve been doing this since 2013 and after working with 1,000’s of clients, in that time have built a proven frame work

The 1 thing I can’t do for you is:

Decide to start and make your decisions

Take action & Do your work

I can’t drink the water for you.

I can’t fix your business for you.

We’ve solved the problem for the last person. You just have to be willing to help yourself.

The one thing I won’t do- is quit on you.

You’ll only be as success as your personal development and if you’re not working on yourself and making your self better, leveling up your mindset and growing, you’ll never grow your business to the level you expect or deserve.

Going into Business with a Partner

 

Should I go into business with my wife, partner or spouse?

The answer is complicated

I’ve had clients who’ve been really successful doing this and in the last year I’ve had 3 clients leave the programs or their business due to a divorce and I’ve experienced my own divorce where we were partners in the clinic.

It made navigating work and our relationship really difficult, though it wasn’t the reason for our divorce, it didn’t help.

Have a Conversation – multiple

 

Must have a shared vision


Discuss and divide the roles/responsibilities


Create boundaries around working together 

  • Date night with no talk about work
  • Weekly check in about your relationship
  • Weekly meeting dedicated to work/business


There may be 1 person who seems to do more in the business and more at home

It’s not a contest

Both partners should always be trying to do more than the other

Here some things to consider:
1) Do you both want to fill the same roles? Ie: both treat patients, both do the marketing, both be the visionary?
Or Are your strengths and interests complimentary?
2) Should to have a trial period and need an exit strategy if it doesn’t work or feel right.
Set expectations, have a “safe” word

Should have an operating agreement that deals with dissolution of the business, and depending on the laws of your state, your business may belong to your partner in marriage whether they work in the business or not.

12 lessons I learned from getting a divorce

I’m officially divorced!

We were together for 22 years, married for 17 and Yes we had been having issues, seen therapists, regularly checked in and talked through our challenges, even made it through covid, but then something shifted.

A few days after PT Biz con 2022 my wife at the time asked for a divorce.

The last 15 months have been some of the hardest up and down months in my life, especially 2 months directly after PT Biz Con Live 2023 this year.

I’m sure if you’ve been a long time listener you might have noticed a shift. Maybe you haven’t. Maybe you guessed something was up.

Up until now I’ve been hesitant to share this because 


#1 I didn’t believe it was really true and didn’t know how to talk about it or who I could without disparaging someone I knew and loved for 22 years

#2 I didn’t want to share anything until I knew that everything was complete, finalized and official because I didn’t want it to make my life even more difficult

#3 I didn’t want to make it all about me because my duty on this podcast and in my coaching business is to my subscribers, listeners and clients so it’s taken a while to start to process what happened in a way that my story can hopefully be helpful to you

I hope if you are currently in a committed relationship that you can learn a few things to make it even better

 

And if you are looking for your next relationship that you can learn something from me to make it even better and


If you are divorced or working through a divorce you know you are not alone, because I know I sure felt that way at times.

I have a lot of lessons to share in upcoming episodes about business and life and I feel like I need to share this with you so there is context as I try to pass along the lessons I’ve learned through this process in business and in life.

So far everything is chill, the kids are doing great, I’ve got 50/50 custody and have spent more time with them in the last year and a half and built a stronger bond with them, than I was able in the years before separating.

Lessons Learned:

1) When things are tough, lean on your friends and team

2) Systems to grow your business are vital. – what I learned and set up in BlackBelt helped me continue to grow my business when I didn’t have the capacity to do more than the basic necessities.

3) Take your time – don’t rush the process. In NC you have to be separated a year before filing for a divorce. I’m glad I waited because what I learned along the way, changed my outcome and situation.

4) karma is a bitch

6) It’s the tough things that you go through that will make you even stronger

7)Aligned in vision and tell the truth.

8) No and the truth doesn’t hurt my feelings

9) There is not “the one” there is “the one right now”

10) Make the decision and be ok with the other person’s emotional regulation

11) Find someone who supports you and doesn’t drain you

12) If you’re in a relationship, learn more about how to be better in a relationship, better lover, communicator and partner – listen to podcasts and personal development shows.

 

I have a clear and defined path forward. I’m no longer being held back in my business and  now have a higher bar to earn even more money to ensure that the amount of $ I am paying out every month is inconsequential to me


I’ve already had a few close friends reach out to me this year for relationship advice.
It was weird because I don’t feel like I’m the best to give relationship advice, lol! but, they were both struggling in their marriage and I had just been through the worst of it.

Welcome to the Aaron LeBauer Show

Welcome back!

For the last 9 years we’ve been doing the CashPT Lunch Hour podcast to help physical therapy cash practice owners launch, grow and scale 6 & 7 figure cash practices.

Started as a webinar series in 2014 and moved onto itunes in 2016 and have produced 239 episodes

Today is the first episode of The Aaron LeBauer Show.

If you are a physical therapist and cash practice owner or want to learn more about cash practice, be sure to listen back to the past episodes.

My story -sleeping on the couch, 

43 patients in 1 day

How I built a cash practice clinic

Then a million dollar coaching business

Can help other professions not just PTs

Teaching about business, marketing and sales and Talking about life lessons not just CashPT

The success formula goes like this be quick to ask for help, quick to take action and be quick to share your wins and lessons

The Aaron LeBauer show will be featuring episodes about entrepreneurship, business strategies and tactics and life lessons.

If there’s one thing I’ve learned in the last 10 years coaching physical therapists is that as the business owner we are our own worst enemy and bottleneck.

It’s funny, I find myself doing more “life coaching” these days than actual “business coaching” lol!

Don’t get me wrong, I teach plenty of tactics and strategies in our programs and coaching groups.

I initially thought teaching strategies and tactics were what would help others be successful, but I’ve learned that it’s something else entirely.

it’s mindset and belief and surrounding ourselves with the right people and voices.

That’s what this podcast is about. Helping you shed the limiting beliefs, learning the latest and cutting edge strategies and giving you an opportunity to connect with other people, now matter how far away they are, to have a positive and encouraging voice in your head.


I just got back from 10 days in Hawaii meeting with clients, attending a blackbelt and boardroom mastermind event to make my business better and surfing everyday.

If there’s one thing that’s still true…You are the sum of the people you surround yourself with the most.

Surround yourself with the right people and put yourself in the right room.

Remember in business:
Speed Wins
Progress over Perfection

80% is good enough.

See you on the next episode.

how to scrub your email list

How to Clean an Email List

Do you have a neglected email list or have you purchased an existing email from someone else? I explain why you need to perform routine maintenance on your list.

If your email list is stagnant and unresponsive, it will lower deliverability, or even worse, getting marked as spam. Recently, I had the opportunity to acquire an existing email list. I take you through the exact steps of what I did to revitalize it and introduce myself to the subscribers.

I moved the list over to the PT Email Engine. We created The PT Email Engine to be a one-stop-shop to maximize your email list. I could’t just move them over without their knowledge or consent.

NEVER subscribing emails to a list without consent!

I use a “9 word email” to reach out to all of the subscribers to start warming up the list. From there. we have different strategies and automations that will trigger depending on how they respond.

If you’re interested in learning more about how we leverage the power of the PT Email Engine to get the most of our email lists, DM to learn more!
