Career Story: Physical Therapist And Home Product Salesperson

Physical Therapist And Home Product Salesperson

Job Title: PHYS. THER. ASST., HOME BASED WELLNESS BUS.

Type of Company: I work in a small community hospital.

Education: AS, North Shore Community College

Previous Experience: I worked as a waitress and in sales.

Job Tasks: I do physical therapy to patients who are in the hospital for various reasons such as total hip replacements. Ii also do out-patient physical therapy for people with specific injuries or balance problems. I am supervised by a registered physical therapist.

I have a two-year degree in physical therapy. I've been in this career for twenty-two years, all at the same community hospital. I get people to do strengthening exercises, teach people how to walk with crutches, walkers, canes etc. I teach people how to do stairs again with or without a piece of equipment. I also do modalties such as ultrasound or electrical stimulation to decrease patient's pain and swelling.

My home-based business is I introduce to the public how to save money, save time, and get safe everyday household products into their home. This is a dynamic wellness company and not a multi-level marketing company. My income is based on a percentage of the customer's monthly shopping for home necessities. I either do group parties or I see people one-on-one and do an hour-long presentation to show how they can get the four hundred wellness products into their home at wholesale prices.

Once a year, I go to a big convention where there are over 7,000 people and learn more about the products and how to succeed.

Best and Worst Parts of the Job: Physical therapy can be rewarding but it can be physical.

My home-based business is educational because I'm teaching people to think green, save money and get safe non-toxic products into their home. The down part is that some people don't understand that you're helping them and would rather buy grocery store brands that are more expensive and have harsh ingredients.

Job Tips:
1.) Don't give up.

2.) Do what you believe in.

3.) Don't be pushy

4.) Know your stuff.
