7 Steps to FREEDOM in Private Practice Overview

Here’s an overview of each of the 7 Steps to FREEDOM in Private Practice:

STEP 1:  Take the “Leap” and Hit the Ground Running

Taking the “leap” is probably one of the biggest (and potentially best) business decisions you will make.  It can be scary and you might feel like you don’t know, what you don’t know.  We’ll start at the beginning and walk you through the process…

  • What does FREEDOM mean to you?
  • Establishing yourself in private practice
  • Positioning yourself for success
  • Choosing the right business model and space for your practice –DBA… Partnership… Solo Practitioner… PLLC… Stand-alone… Shared Space… Sub Lease
  • Making a smooth transition from employment to self-employment

STEP 2:  Protect Your Practice With Solid Policies & Procedures

If you’ve ever worked in an agency, school, hospital, or for anyone else you probably know what it feels like to “drown” in all of the paperwork.  It’s not that bad in private practice — however, you should know what paperwork and information is required so you can set up policies and procedures so you are consistent and prepared to face just about any requirement, problem or scenario…

  • Don’t be afraid
  • Intake paperwork and forms
  • First things first
  • HIPAA considerations and procedures
  • Preparations for “special-case scenarios”

STEP 3:  Save Time & Money With Systems That Work For You

It takes thought and planning to set up your new environment in a way that is good for you and your clients.  When you are doing tasks over and over again, it makes sense to create systems that will maximize your efforts and make you more efficient…

  • Msc. business management items
  • Office management items
  • Practice management options
  • Online Options

STEP 4:  Getting Paid in Private Practice

It’s not a real business if you’re not getting paid!  Don’t let your concerns about the financial aspects of private practice hold you back one more day.  A better understanding of fees and money in general will help you get this issue covered, so you can focus on what you really love…

  • Acknowledging & conquering your money issues
  • Setting your fees and policies
  • Talking with clients about money
  • Billing for your services
  • Insurance issues regarding money

STEP 5:  Develop A Brand That Sells

Building a SOLID foundation for your private practice is critical to your short term and long term success.  Once you have a full understanding of who you are, whom you serve, what you do, and why you do it — you’ll be able to talk about you and your business with ease, and you’ll attract the referrals you need to fill your book…

  • Choose your Target Market(s)
  • Identify your Ideal Client
  • How to talk about what you do

STEP 6:  Get Noticed and Get More Clients!

There are over 100,000 private practitioners in the U.S.  There are specific things you can do to get notices and stand apart from the pack.  Don’t get lost or overlooked — help the people who need you by letting them know you are the best person for them…

  • Create an effective website
  • Develop powerful and compelling Directory Ads
  • Getting to know your Gatekeepers
  • Creating & Developing Key Relationships

STEP 7:  Diversify Your Income Streams & Maximize Your Earning Potential

Your business and your interests, needs, and desires will change over time.  There are many ways to generate income and keep you excited about what you do.  There is no need to feel cornered or to feel stuck in a rut in your own practice…

  • Online options for counseling and coaching
  • Offer trainings, workshops, and products
  • Provide supervision and consultation

For each step, I give you a training video, worksheets, samples, and an action plan for you to put to work what you’ve learned.  You’ll use this program for years to come as you sculpt your business to fit your ever-changing needs.
