I am the proud owner of my very own PP where I get to wear crazy T-shirts, even crazier socks, and Converse (or Ugg Boots) every day! I've built a private practice in less than a year with all the information available on FB and google.


My greatest accomplishment with my business was niching down even though friends & family told me I was crazy to only see a specific clientele. I also have a kick ass office (with soft Kleenex's instead of agency sand paper) that I decorated with furniture NOT from an agency storeroom..LOL

Show Notes:
  1. Everything you need to build a Private Practice is on FB...seriously, there are so many groups dedicated to what we do that the information is endless. 

  2. Do it scared anyway & don't let an emotion keep you from an action step

  3. Hire a coach 

  4. Your agency work is hindering your marketing abilities

If you’re in private practice, you wear a lot of hats. And some of those hats are totally great. But some — like filing taxes and running payroll, for example — not so great. That’s where Gusto comes in. Gusto makes payroll, taxes, and HR actually easy for small businesses. Fast, simple payroll processing, benefits, and expert HR support all in one place. Gusto automatically pays and files your federal, state, and local taxes so you don’t have to worry about it. Plus they make it easy to add on health benefits and even 401(k)s for your team. So let them wear one of your many hats — you have better things to do. Listeners get three months free when they run their first payroll. Try a demo and see for yourself at
