Startup Nation, there are a lot of perks of being a private practice owner. Doing your own bookkeeping and taxes is not one of them.

That’s why we’ve partnered with the experts at Heard to help you manage your private practice finances. On average, Heard saves therapists 60 hours per year in financial record-keeping and $5,000 in taxes. How many more clients could you see if you got 60 hours back per year?
