Welcome to the February 2021 Best of OT!
This week I released a podcast episode with Trish Williams all about entrepreneurship. In it we discussed how there used to be very few resources out there for OT practitioners and students who are interested in entrepreneurship.
Fortunately, this has changed over the past couple of years and so today I wanted to highlight some of the amazing podcasts hosted by OT practitioners who talk about entrepreneurship.
This podcast hosted by Laura Park Figueroa is all about occupational therapy and business. From valuable interviews with guests to actionable monologues by the host, you’re sure to learn a thing or two in each and every episode.
Here’s a brand new OT podcast on the block that gets right down to a very important subject… money! Trish Williams shares how OT business owners set goals, overcome barriers in business, and most importantly make some mulah.
Another new podcast all about trailblazers, visionaries, and thought leaders in the therapy world. Melissa LaPointe dives deep into conversations about entrepreneurship, growth, recovery, and well-being.
Host Tomeico Faison interviews amazing therapy entrepreneurs and leaders of color about their journeys and experiences in leadership and entrepreneurship. The show aims to inspire and support other therapy practitioners and students on their own journeys.
Ok so the host Brandon Seigel is not technically an OT, but he is married to one (and we happened to go to OT school together) and has a bunch of OT and other healthcare professionals in his family. So he definitely speaks the therapy language as he shares insight from his years helping therapy business owners not just survive, but thrive.

And ICYMI, I just hit a HUGE podcast milestone… 100 episodes. Not only did I hit this milestone, but also my buddy and fellow OT podcaster Brock Cook hit the milestone at the exact same time. Join our discussion as we chat about out OT podcasting journey, the good, the bad, and like umm ya know the ugly.
Also, I’m asking for help if you are an OT 4 Lyfe podcast listener. Could you take a few minutes to fill out this survey about what you like about the show, what you dislike, and any other feedback you’d like to share with me? All surveys that are completed and submitted by February 28, 2021 will be entered into a giveaway for a chance to win a $25 gift card. I will be picking two winners and announcing on March 1, 2021.
