Cindy’s process from moving from a solo to a group practice

I didn’t do this alone, I did this with the help of the group. (Cindy Brock)

Through Cindy’s work in Faith in Practice Start a Group Practice Mastermind with Whitney, she started the process by setting out monthly goals for the year to keep track of her progress. Following Whitney’s advice, Cindy hired two new clinicians simultaneously who she felt fit the feeling of her practice well.

Therefore, in two to two and a half months of being a part of her mastermind group, Cindy had hired two new therapists and had branched out her practice.

Having your solo practice running smoothly before transitioning into a group practice will definitely help you expand it because you can simply adapt the preexisting systems you already have to accommodate the expansion, instead of having to create completely new systems from scratch.
