This book contains the information that Board Certified Exercise Physiologists need to start and manage a profitable healthcare business. In addition to helping physiologists understand what it takes to start a business, the book also addresses the importance of a business plan. The more information that exercise physiologists have at the beginning, the more likely they are going to be successful. The idea is to identify what is needed as an entrepreneur to get started and how to be successful at growing your own business. This book is a declaration of intent and permission to “just do it.”
