Learning to Embrace Failure & Other Lessons Learned While Writing Movers & Mentors with Physical Therapists, Tim Reynolds and Bryan Guzski
In this week’s episode, I am joined by Tim and Bryan, physical therapists and authors of the book, Movers & Mentors: Leaders in Movement Science Share Tips, Tactics, and Stories. Movers & Mentors is a compilation of stories, thoughts, and advice from over 75 leaders in the fields of physical therapy and movement science. From researchers and expert clinicians, to innovators and business owners, their answers to thought-provoking questions will provide personal and professional guidance for the next generation of rehabilitation professionals.
Tim and Bryan share their story from first meeting in school to how they ended up writing a book together while interviewing some of the biggest leaders in the industry. They share where the idea first came from, how they decided who to reach out to, and how the response has been from both contributors and readers in the field!
