Get Results in Private Practice | July 2019 Monthly Income Report

Get Results in Private Practice | July 2019 Monthly Income Report

This month was amazing, I really needed to slow down and think about how to move forward. In June, I sold my counseling practice. So, in July the focus was on wrapping up with clients, going on vacation, and rocking out Slow Down School.

For me, Slow Down School was by far the highlight of the month. Whether it was watching LaToya have her first s’more, Michael skipping an “unskippable” piece of concrete or just diving crazy deep into reinventing businesses, it felt like I was in my element.

It’s hard not to oversell Slow Down School, but it is a magical part of my year when I get to work with some of the top performers in my audience. It’s hard to get here, it’s a week off, so it really takes a committed person to do all of that.

But what happens, is the absolute perfect group forms. It’s people that really want to experience mega-change to level up through big ideas, practice, or both.

It makes me crazy excited for Killin’It Camp in October.
