Eric Connor’s Story

Eric has been on his own since 2015. Before then, he worked for another practice part-time. When he started my practice, he was networking and growing his practice one client at a time. It took about two years for him to cross the $100 000 mark.

“Everyone can choose their own path.”

Eric considers himself an entrepreneur at heart and love to start / grow things that have my mark on them.

In This Podcast


In this podcast, Eric Connor speaks about how he has grown his solo private practice to where it is today, a six figure business. He emphasizes the importance of networking as well as how he developed the concept of running therapy groups. Eric goes into detail about these groups and why they have worked out being a very profitable venture for him and his practice.

“There is this mindset that ‘I can do things best’ but, ultimately, this is going to stand in the way of you scaling your private practice.”

Networking Is a Must

You have to maintain this mindset that people don’t know who you are and what you do until you make an effort to make yourself known. Whether it’s sending someone an email, or arranging to speak at events, you need to always be networking.

Running Groups

Instead of having a group practice, Eric has a solo practice, but runs intensive group therapy sessions which is what has made his private practice a six figure business. He addresses therapy with three different facets:

  • Individual therapy
  • Group therapy
  • Recovery

“It’s hard to fill groups by just marketing them. There has to be cohesion.”

Eric fills groups through referrals from other clinicians, or by scanning his own clients. Ideal groups are between six to eight people. Also, they should be around a specific product, i.e.: men recovering from sex addiction. Eric charges $2000 – $5000 per intensive group session. He runs these by himself as well as together with other clinicians.
