Group Practice Boss structure
Every month, Whitney and Alison take the group on a deep dive into different topics.
We know there is so much information out there about running a business and instead of getting overwhelmed by putting out lots of different content about different things, we decided we would just really focus in on a particular theme for the month. (Alison Pidgeon)
For example, in the month of October, they guided a deep dive into questions and discussions on how to customize your business to suit your lifestyle.
Ask the expert
Another feature of the group practice boss structure is every month, Whitney and Alison bring in an expert on that month’s topic to answer any questions people might have about that specific subject.
Relational component of Group Practice Boss
Often we become inspired by seeing people do interesting or groundbreaking things and that motivates us to do the same; this is one of the encouraging aspects of Group Practice Boss where you can meet like-minded people and form authentic connections as well as learning on your personal group practice journey.
