our awesome sponsors:

If you are 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

As a therapist, I can tell you from experience that having the right EHR is an absolute lifeline. I recommend using TherapyNotes. They make billing, scheduling, notetaking, telehealth, and E-prescribing incredibly easy. Best of all, they offer live telephone support that's available 7 days a week.

You don’t have to take my word for it - Do your own research and see for yourself - TherapyNotes is the #1 highest rated EHR system available today, with 4.9 out of 5 stars on and on Google.

Go to and use the promo code PPS for a special 2-month trial, absolutely free.

If you’re coming from another EHR, TherapyNotes will import your demographic data quick and easy at no cost, so you can get started right away.

Trust me, don’t waste any more of your time, and try TherapyNotes.

Knowing you need legal, ethical, and competent paperwork is overwhelming, time consuming, and expensive! We’re clinicians, not lawyers. We put in 100+ hours of work, combed through the laws and ethics, and paid thousands of dollars in expensive attorney fees so you don’t have to.

Save time & money!
