“If you’re really reaching for a substantially new level of performance, you need a coach.” — Bill Gallagher

Are you an ambitious practice owner caught up in the daily tasks of working in your business, always too busy to be able to work on it? Are you stuck doing the things you do not like to do, wishing someone else was able to take on part of the load? Are you maybe even a little unclear about what “working ON your business” even means? Or do you start many projects and never finish them due to putting out fires and dealing with other people’s emergencies?

Would doubling your profit and tripling your time off help you?

We coach ambitious private practice owners to grow and scale their business while keeping their sanity and relationships intact. We created The Star Game Approach™. This game-style coaching approach helps you enjoy more fun and freedom by overcoming the key roadblocks standing in your way.  It also helps you avoid The Oughta Otter Trap. By implementing your customized program, we help harried business owners make their lives 10 times better through improving their enjoyment, satisfaction and profit.

We realize however that The Star Game Approach™ is not for everyone. It’s for ambitious business owners who are coachable, open to new ideas, and like to be challenged. You’re also want to learn to take time out to learn and plan, and are okay with getting outside your comfort zone, if it leads to positive change. If you’re someone like that, you are likely a good candidate for our membership program.

We created The Star Game Approach™ based on what we’ve learned working with many business owners, and from our own experience running a successful physical therapy practice. We’ve learned that many business owners don’t address the key roadblocks that are standing in their way. Sometimes they aren’t even aware of what those road blocks are. They focus exclusively on caring for their patients and scrambling inside their business, and neglect working ON their business. We call this The Oughta Otter Trap™. You know, when you get stuck saying “I oughta work on my business”, and thinking “I oughta get this under control”. When you fall into this trap, you suffer unnecessary stress and worry, you work more and make less money, and you don’t achieve your full potential.

However, if you use our game-style approach to address the key roadblocks that are standing in your way, you’ll achieve a much better result. You will feel more relaxed, confident and energized. You’ll be able to work less and make more money. And you’ll achieve your full potential while enjoying your life to the fullest.

That’s why we recommend you do these three things.
  1. Honestly assess your current situation. What are the roadblocks standing in your way?
  2. Create a written vision of your desired goals, both business and personal.
  3. Use a game-style coaching approach to address, once and for all, the roadblocks standing in your way.

If you are ready to achieve the future you really want, we offer a free Starter Session. During this session, we will help you assess your current situation and start working on overcoming your roadblocks.home-2 You’ll have a little pre-work to do to get ready and that will help guide our conversation. We’ll then decide together if it’s a fit and you should take the next steps with us, or if there is another resource that better suits your needs. That’s right, we will help you find the right resource(s) to help you achieve your goals, even if that is not with us.

“I feel very fortunate to have Sturdy in my corner. Times are tough with profit margins shrinking and regulations increasing. I’ve been very impressed since day one working with Sturdy. He has a systematic and comprehensive approach to building and supporting the growth of my business. We are building a strong base with a central theme which will then be used in all aspects of the business. Not only are we working on the long term growth of my business, but he is able to coach me through much more pressing issues at hand. I appreciate that Sturdy has learned and is learning from leaders in business. It is this knowledge in business and customer service that makes his coaching so valuable. He also is able to draw from his own experiences running a successful PT practice. Because of his experience and knowledge he is well sought after speaker for other coaching businesses. He is able to clearly present material and gets you involved in finding the solution to your problems. I am confident, excited and motivated for what leads ahead for my business and self growth.” — Garrett Akahoshi, MPT, CSCS, Owner, Peak Physical Therapy, Cupertino, CA
