“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.” – Ghandi

This great quote from Ghandi is perfect for this week’s episode.  Often times we find ourselves so entrenched in our own lives that we forget there is a whole world out there that can benefit from the unique skills we have to give.  That is why I am so thankful for my guests in this week’s episode! Dr. Josh D’Angelo and Dr. Efosa Guobadia are physical therapists and the co-founders of the Global PT Day of Service. They are a breath of fresh air and after listening to this podcast you are going to want them as your new BFFs!

In this episode you will learn:

  • What inspired them to create the Global PT Day of Service (and it is a good one).
  • How their mutual friendship and respect for each other is a great example of how to live your life.
  • Their take on why PTs should be giving back to their communities and how it can help move your business forward.
  • Some examples of what they will be doing for the Global PT Day of Service.
  • Their vision for the future of the Global PT Day of Service.
  • How easy it is for you to get involved in the Global PT Day of Service.

This was such an inspiring interview and I hope that after listening you head over to the Global PT Day of Service, sign up and get ready to be of service to the people in your community. I hear so often that people in our communities don’t know what physical therapy is and what we do for our clients/patients. Getting out there in the community and using our unique set of skills, meeting people in the community and being of service to others sounds like a great way to spread the word about physical therapy!

“Service to others is the rent you pay for your room here on earth.” – Mohammed Ali

Thank for listening and have a great week!
