Starting in private practice can be overwhelming and intimidating, but it doesn’t have to be! Let’s face it, we were taught to be great clinicians in graduate school, but most programs don’t teach us the essential business skills needed to become successful in private practice. However, those skills can be learned and we are here to support you on that journey.

This episode is packed full of tons of practice building and growing #ninjatips so make sure to grab something to take notes with and reference the below resources to help you on your journey from startup to mastery!

 

We’ve organized this episode in steps so you can follow them one by one. You can do this! We’ve got your back!!

Show Notes:
  1. CREATE YOUR PLAN – Start off with a plan. If you fail to plan, you can plan to fail. Don’t make the same mistakes we did. Here are some resources to help you with strategizing your dream practice. 

  • Goal Planning Worksheet – Download this worksheet and use it as a guide to help you build your dream private practice and dream lifestyle! 

  • Create a business plan – listen to Amanda Patterson’s Podcast

  • Create your lifestyle business – listen to Joe Sanok’s Podcast.  

  • Create a financial and marketing strategy to set you up for long-term success. 

2. BRANDING & IDEAL CLIENTS – Know thy ideal client and brand yourself first before deciding on a name for your practice. 

  • Brand Values Assessment – this will help you identify your top 7 brand values. If you don’t determine your brand values, other people will do it for you. Your brand values will guide all business decisions so think carefully as you decide. 

3. CHOOSE YOUR NAME – Assure to do steps 1 & 2 before choosing your name. 

4. GET A DOMAIN NAME– Research available domain names before you incorporate so you can assure your domain matches your company name.

5. INCORPORATE – Talk with your accountant or business attorney to find the best type of incorporation for you and your long term goal. Here are a few tax podcasts for resources.

6. GET YOUR EIN NUMBER – Once you incorporate you can go to IRS.gov to get your EIN number which is also known as your Tax ID. You’ll need to use that to get an NPI number aka National Provider Identification if you’re going to take insurance.

7. OPEN A BUSINESS BANK ACCOUNT – Open business banking accounts and get a business credit card.  

8. LIABILITY INSURANCE – Assure you have both liability and general liability (unless you are completely online).  

9. PAPERWORK & ELECTRONIC HEALTH RECORDS –  We have you covered for Customizable, Attorney Approved Private Practice Paperwork.
