Finding the Confidence to Take Big Leaps with Jeff McMenamy

Today’s guest, Jeff McMenamy, has quite a story to share, and in today’s interview, he and Dr. Sabrina journey all the way back to 2008, when he was on the cusp of something great. It is also how they first met. Dr. Sabrina has had the opportunity to work with him and watch his business grow. Listen in to hear this inspiring story of how Jeff has used his success to impact the lives of others and to build a great place to work for his team members.

Jeff McMenamy is an Occupational Therapist who has been practicing for 31 years and in private business for 20 years. He is the Owner and CEO of Teton Therapy which is an outpatient Physical and Occupational Therapy company that has operated and managed clinics in Riverton, Lander, Dubois, Cheyenne, and Sheridan, Wyoming. During the COVID pandemic, Teton Therapy of Cheyenne and Riverton upgraded to new buildings. Jeff, his wife Mic, and their son Ian all work in the business. Teton Therapy has a management team in place which allows for day-to-day operations to take place without the owner's presence. Jeff and Mic enjoy taking a month off each winter renting a house in a warm location to spend time with family while enjoying outdoor activities.  You may have seen them driving across the US trailering a boat along with two Kayaks, bikes, golf clubs, and fishing rods.

About The Author

Dr. Sabrina Starling, The Business Psychologist and international best-selling author of the How to Hire the Best series and The 4 Week Vacation™, is the founder of Tap the Potential and host of the Profit by Design podcast. At Tap the Potential, we work to free business owners from the constant demands of a growing business.

We believe work supports life, not the other way around. Clients in our Better Business, Better Life coaching program have more time for what matters most and more money in their bank account than they’ve ever had. Next, we send them off on a 4 Week Vacation™ to celebrate their hard-earned journey to take their life back!

Dr. Sabrina and her team at Tap the Potential are on a mission to change the story of entrepreneurship from one of long hours, grinding it out, to one of sustainably profitable businesses that support and enhance life. The Tap the Potential Solution™ and our Tap the Potential Family of Business Owners are disrupting small business as usual. We are on our way to making the Tap the Potential Solution™ the mainstream model for growing business.

By 2023, 150 Tap the Potential clients will have taken 4 Week Vacations. These are the trailblazers, role modeling what’s possible for entrepreneurs. In many entrepreneurial circles, it is becoming more and more common for one entrepreneur to ask another, “Have you taken a 4 Week Vacation™?” (as opposed to asking “How many employees do you have?” or “What is your annual revenue?”). Taking a fully unplugged 4 Week Vacation is rapidly becoming the recognized symbol of entrepreneurial success.

Never one to accept the status quo or back down from a challenge, Dr. Sabrina’s How to Hire the Best series grew from her desire to solve the toughest hiring challenges interfering with her clients’ growth and profitability. What sprang from her experience working with entrepreneurs in rural areas catapulted her into becoming the world’s leading expert in attracting top talent in small businesses—no matter what hiring challenges those businesses are facing—and earned Tap the Potential’s reputation as the go-to resource for entrepreneurs committed to creating Great Places to Work with thriving coaching cultures and highly engaged team members working from strengths.

As The Business Psychologist, and with her years of driving profit in small businesses, Dr. Sabrina knows what it takes to find, keep, and motivate exceptional performance out of your biggest investment—team members.
