By Les Sweeney, NCTM, and Kristin Coverly, RMT Les Sweeney: Kristin, when you teach your ABMP BizFit workshops, what are attendees seeking guidance on? Kristin Coverly: Everything related to successfully marketing their practices. But people are most curious about technology.

I certainly hope that all professionals in this field are "high touch"—it would be tough to develop a successful career if you weren't—but I want to challenge the assumption that all therapists are afraid of, or disinterested in using, technology.
