give us practiceofthepractice.com/12days. [0:30] Music. [0:54] Today we’re talking all about ways to grow and scale and level. [1:00] So on the seventh day of practice joe gave to me seven with a gross six productivity tips five blog post ideas.
Four day weekend threes downstairs to say questions and an awesome money minds it.
Sir can a high on that one who writes let’s talk a little bit about why you to level up so often people say lies wanna make more money.
And that’s fine but to me the impact you can have on the world the influence and income are all part of that equation and,
really that impact for me comes from a lot of different ways you guys are traveling the world graph my freshman year of college at a six week road trip to europe.
In two thousand my mom and i went to haiti and she say she gone the year before. [1:53] And i remember this moment and thinking that he was two hundred miles from florida and it was the poorest country in the western hemisphere.
And see how people don’t even have access to clean water diseases we never even think about and that the amount that we spend at a fancy evening hours how much someone makes in a year you know hundred to two hundred bucks a year. [2:16] Just really pushes me to think differently about my impact on the world and so when i talk about growing in leveling up.
It’s not just make more money that’s awesome you know you can do things with it that maybe couldn’t do before but for me it’s really looking at the impact we have on the world,
so dave is seven ways to grow for me or come out of,
that desire to have a greater impact on the world so the first way to grow your practice or even to grow beyond your practice is to launch a podcast when you’re listening to this podcast because a few years ago i bought a mike,
and started podcasting i don’t know what i was doing oftentimes still don’t know what i’m doing but launching a podcast is,
probably one of the best ways to reach an international audience with the messages much broader than something that is in your community,
if you just want to,
yo can i do counseling in your community the podcast are probably be focus on your community but if it’s a broader issue than it yeah go after those bigger issues.
Second to reach out to people you’d love to learn from have them on your podcast have them interview them for your blog reach out to those people the t you are steps ahead of where you’re at the people you look up to people that you,
want to be like what your career to emulate third use blog post to write a book or e-book and then give it away to clients.
So for me i took a bunch of notes i taken from when i was on the radio talking about parenting,
an expanded upon those and wrote a book of mental wellness parenting my practices comment on this counseling center give that parenting book a way to my clients. [3:53] And i only thing to the book of a building on dash this is you this is gray oh my gosh so if you take those blog post we talked about doing twenty six blog posts,
think those in regards to a series are larger book of force bring in other clinicians w two or ten ninety-nine talk but they yesterday run for activity,
but growing your practice and also grows your influence in the community.
Each person brings in their own network of people that you never would have connected with and to me,
that’s one of the single best ways that you can grow the impact you’re gonna have on your local community and also free yourself from just having to do counseling. [4:29] Next network like a crazy person if you want to grow and you wanna be working forty hours a week and only working thirty.
Spends ten hours networking like crazy il sump rear tickets to a great can a model for that were seen at work at ninety people in ninety days,
i remember the name number of for episode shoes and if you just taking allison three impacts of the practice you’ll find that.
If you network a crazy person even just like six months that is going to re benefits for years to come. [4:58] Next have beautiful design if you are artistic if you don’t know what things look good and what doesn’t,
he hire a virtual assistant to help you with that i was gonna help you so much to just look like your therapeutic work matches your design work.
Lastly hire a virtual assistant and the phones they will totally pay for themselves,
my first virtual assistant i just had her answering voice mails in the morning in the afternoon in the first day she scheduled for intakes,
so she more than pay for herself for the month in that one day i would a loss those people and she called them back in the day of.
Having a virtual assistant be able to call back for you to answer questions are just as its different layer of professionalism.
And think about your primary care doctor needed all the scheduling all the billing all the mailing at first you might think that’s kinda cool but then after a while you do it.
Kindly get weird why do they do that when the spending time doing dr stuff instead of making phone calls.
So again i’ll seven ways to grow our to launch a podcast reach out to people you’d love to learn from use blog post to write a book,
spring on other clinicians Network like a crazy person have beautiful design and hire virtual assistant to do your scheduling answer phones.
