You need yourself more than those people need you.

In this bonus episode of one of our first Deeper Dives, we are diving into the exciting world of setting up your own private practice.

We’ll be chatting about all the juicy stuff like deciding what kind of practice to have, how to handle follow-up services like a boss, and setting those all-important boundaries with clients. 

Oh, and let’s not forget about actually making money! 

We’ll be dishing out some killer tips on managing the financial side of running a practice, like offering payment plans and discounts for follow-ups.

“It’s hard that we have this really difficult business that people think we should be giving away for free and that healthcare providers don’t think that they need us.”
