How to Name a Private Practice

Today, we are talking all about naming a practice. The name of your practice is one of the most important things that you can land on. But, also, people often get hung up on it and they take way too long to name their practice.

5 Tips to Overcome Imposter’s Syndrome

I was about two weeks into private practice when it really hit me. My confused and overwhelmed client was pouring her heart out to me. And, there I sat across from her, hands sweating. 

Multiplying Your Time and Money

In the last post, we discussed playing with numbers to add clinicians, raise your rates, and work the same, or less, but still make more money. I hope it went awesome. Did you have some fun dreaming about new financials in your life? Have you already spent the money (in your head) you haven’t made yet? 🙂

How to Use Assistants to Grow Faster

At this point, my consulting clients and Next Level Mastermind folks often ask very similar questions, and have similar concerns, and fears:

  • If I grow, won’t I have a huge team to manage? That’s going to take a ton of time!
  • I’m not big on supervising people, I like doing my own thing, how do I manage that?

Before You Go…

  • Adding Clinicians To Your Practice
    If you’re confused and worried about adding clinicians to your practice, then I think you’re really going to like today’s training. Today, we’re going to talk all about adding clinicians to your practice. At the end, your action is probably one of the best you can take to grow quickly and save time!
  • Substance Abuse is Related to Mental Health: 3 Things Therapists Should Know
    I am going to make a really bold claim; substance abuse issues are mental health issues. What does this mean you might ask? Often, substance abuse issues are covering up really serious mental health issues, like anxiety, depression, trauma, as well as other serious struggles, like paranoia or hallucinations in some form. 
  • 8 Habits of Emotionally Strong Leaders
    The best leaders are the strongest leaders. Not in terms of how much they can bench press, perhaps, but in terms of how they react to and deal with different situations. If you want to inspire leadership, then you have to show that you’re up to the task.
  • How To Stay Focused On The Big Goals
    If you didn’t get the paperwork packet, make sure you take some action to get your contracts in order. I know my paperwork has saved hundreds of people attorney fees. If you didn’t get it, that’s fine, but do something to move forward! Doing nothing will not help you get to the next level!
  • Ethnocentric to a Cosmocentric View of Life
    Today I’m going to talk about something that’s a little outside of what we typically talk about, when it comes to business. We are, however, going to tie it back into business.
  • How Micro-Goals Will Change You
    In the next thirty days, we will see an entire nation set goals and give up on them. Depending on the study, anywhere from 80%-92% of people will give up on their goals by February. What is it about the new year that compels us to do this?
  • Sowing the Seeds of a New Practice: Negotiating Rent
    My wife and I had made the move across Tampa Bay. We now resided about as close to the Gulf of Mexico as you can get, without getting wet. I had received my registered intern number from the state of Florida and I had attended a few supervision sessions with my new supervisor.
  • Why and How to Give More On-Going Feedback
    A common question that I get is, ‘how to give feedback to assistants, intake coordinators, other counselors, and people that are working in your business that help you thrive and grow’. But, also, how do you do it in a way that’s not ‘jerky’ and that respects people’s autonomy as a professional. While also recognizing that, when you give something to someone to do, they don’t always do it the way that you want them to.
  • Costs of a Private Practice | November 2017 Monthly Income Report
    It’s amazing the power of scaling a business! This month I went to Colorado with my friend Paul, got to hang out with Michael Moore, did the keynote at the Alabama Counseling Association and saw a beautiful sunset at Thanksgiving!
