Ted Jedynak specialize in musculoskeletal therapies for the lower limbs since 1996. He created three manual therapies specialist clinic from 2002 to 2012, and sold all of those clinics in Australia in 2016. Ted retired from clinical practice since 2012 and has since focused on teaching manual therapies globally.
There are four things that we talk about in this episode. First, Ted talks about his career and business trajectory and the lessons he has learned throughout his business journey.
Second, we talk about the value of having a mentor and the difference that it can do to your business and personal life. Ted shares his story on how he met one of the most influential people in his life, his mentor, and how he has helped him recover from a bad business partnership and catapult his business to success.
Third, we talk about the importance of systems and structure in training and on-boarding team members. We talk about how McDonalds isn’t falling apart even though they are essentially ran by teenagers – all because there are systems and structure in place. Having those systems and structure also allows you to attract and retain the right talent for your business.
And lastly, we talk about how you can bring young practitioners and admin officers to a higher level in a very condensed period of time by training them. Ted talks about how you can become a quality mentor and help your staff and admin team with their personal and professional growth journey.
This episode is super jam-packed with wisdom; make sure you don’t miss out!

“I have mentors because they have the ability to ask the hard questions and see things from a fresh perspective.”
