Alright so on the ninth day of practice to give to me nine quick changes a passive income idea seven ways to grow six productivity chips five blog post ideas.
Four days a week and three slow down steps to say questions and in on us money mindset ad. [1:35] Alright so today let’s talk about nine quick changes the you can make their going to make a huge difference in your two thousand and seventeen.
How one quick change that you can make is to file as an llc or a pllc some states require professional jealousy.
Or in this course was talk a little bit about those again i’m not a accountant and said that before and i’m attorney,
i have interview ron harris my own account to talk about llc back in session one fifty eight and we’ll talk a little bit about,
i kinda his advice was so he had advised us that it’s almost always not almost or is he said always.
I want good to file an llc it protects you and the number of different ways to separate yourself legally from your business,
of course in each day you can get sued in different ways in different forms are defiling else is really can the first thing you need to do,
i use swift file that’s who i’ve used my friends stroman did a big shout chris stroman down in kalamazoo.
He’s the one that let me know how much is your what’s using legal zoom,
they do filed for just forty nine bucks plus your state fees cheaper and better quality you can go to practiceofthepractice.com/llc,
to file that from the forty nine bucks plus your state fee. [2:55] Escort really saves you on taxes by i can’t leveling up what your business looks like you see on the self employment tax,
and typically you wanna be bringing in over eighty thousand dollars per year and have a rule of thumb course at your own account or find an account can you advise you on that but i know that i have saved,
of the amount i pay in having an account over see all of my distributions in taxes and all that i did i save three to four times that in taxes by having ron harris do that.
So i was a failure llc or your s corp as soon as possible this to save you tax money and liability the really quick change you can have it done again at practiceofthepractice.com/llc.
Second i would say put a call to action in the top right of your website donald miller with the story brand podcast has really taught me this.
And having in your upper right your call to action of schedule an intake start counseling something like that,
that makes it very easy on the eyes naturally go to the upper right to look for more information so that’s where you wanna have your call to action for your websites of that schedule counseling if that schedule a phone call if that’s talk to somebody,
i have that the operate third i have started email list,
an e-mail list around your specialty is why one of the best ways to build leads but also to create a different kind of passive income streams we talked about using affiliate links imagine that there’s a book about depression that you love,
and you have a thousand people around email us there interested learning more about depression if you said that out a couple of them buy it. [4:30] Holy passive income to send email list i use aweber you can get they have a book that all the water right of first couple emails and you can get that book.
Free over a practiceofthepractice.com/aweber and that’s with one be saved we be er. [4:48] Four fifty,
get interviewed on a podcast if you don’t think that you want to launch your own podcast start pitching yourself to other people’s podcast together one page bio about yourself if you’ve been featured in the media,
reach out to people in the new and noteworthy section that makes sense for your specialty and then on your website you can say as featured in and the more that you have those media,
connections and more bills after already and expertise to get interviewed on podcasts as much as you can. [5:16] Next respond and sign up for haro sister help a reporter out. [5:22] Awesome service where i’ve been able to get featured on huffington post others gonna be something reader’s digest red quoted there’s something coming out soon it’s in a large new york based newspaper,
see me everything goes according to plans and it’s all because of haro is a three times a day email you get some kind of annoying. [5:44] What’s really cool is people from all different segments as we can be small little places like to tucson times they want a quote on something could be something from the today show and they want a quote on something.
Then they will put it out there and then it’ll be broken up into different sections like healthcare or lifestyle of technology.
And you just respond to on you answer the question really an easy quick way and then often times you can get featured and i’ve developed some relationships with reporters,
then it’s really cool because i give my personal cell phone so happy ever need a last minute quote let me know i’m happy to help bill you out next.
I would say upgrade your website if you’ve been bootstrapping on your own i was a movie in two,
having somebody else do that if you upgrade your website i tend to recommend greater vision brightervision.com/joe you get a discount.
Or legendary lines my own website company and having someone that you can just say hey take care of this please.
And not had for that time is a great way to just continue to level up your career.
Next that’s a get a cpa if you don’t have a certified public accountant,
you really want when they can focus and on therapists my own ryan harris he’s taking new people,
you can connect with him over harrisgroupcpa.com/joe he’ll give you a free interview and won’t charge you for just exploring that,
so that’s harrisgroupcpa.com/joe also you can hear his interview at session one fifty eight. [7:17] I should’ve done this years ago don’t do what i did i limped along i use to like turbo tax and,
trust me having a cpa look at your numbers is so worth the money and it’s usually not much more expensive than filing through something,
like a turbo tax so i would definitely recommend getting a cpa.
Next thursday outsource your design even if you love design like it i love are i love making images and when i wanna just relax i make an infographic i mean that’s just how i,
love spending my time.
Buy for your business it’s really smart to have somebody else make beautiful design for you and so you can outsource that doesn’t usually you can get for images or so a month for around fifty bucks,
i know my own designer sam she’s taking new clients and you can connect with her over a practiceofthepractice.com/blog-images.
And she does it for you for images a month for fifty bucks and it’s amazing to see when these images just keep coming out,
and i just it’s awesome to see how much you can get done when you’re not working but excuse me last i would say hire a virtual assistant,
to answer your calls this is one of the most important things on the you can be doing because they think about your doctor if your doctor was answering the calls scheduling doing all the billing.
You over time can be claimed you doing doctor stuff. [8:44] See you needed be having somebody between you and new clients coming in to save you time but also so that when you’re in session you can be having people can schedule that your appointment or into the clinicians that are at your practice.
I’m in the midst of bringing on another virtual assistant that i’m gonna be outsourcing to you all the clinicians that i know that want to have once you can apply for that if you want.
In a system the street from me go on over to practiceofthepractice.com/system and you can apply,
