I used to be just like you.
I started my practice out of pure passion. I wanted to help other patients who didn’t have the support I needed when challenges arose in my life. I hustled and worked hard for 2 years, fulfilling my clinical hours, taking courses, studying and providing pro-bono support.
When my second child was just 4 weeks old, I sat for my board exam and opened my practice a short 3 months later. As a newbie (and new mom), I was afraid to charge what I was really worth. I had little time for networking, and no startup capital. I was getting things started, but 5 months into practicing, all my business dried up for TWO WHOLE MONTHS.
I took that time to figure out what was working and what was hurting my practice. I had to change the way I was doing everything. Even once I got busy again, I had patients contacting me at all hours of the day and night, expecting free help after their initial appointment, and not wanting to pay my full fee.
I still struggled until I found a way to eliminate these problems in my practice. I put systems and processes into place to prevent no-shows, last minute cancellations, increase patient retention and referrals. I didn’t realize it at the time, but I also completely shifted my mindset and who I was being in my business. I showed up in an entirely new way and quickly grew my practice to 5 figures a month. Since then, I’ve continued to grow my practice, and I’ve helped many other holistic healthcare practitioners grow to 5 and 6 figures a month using my strategies.
Now I have a practice that not only serves my patients and gets them the outcome they so desperately wanted, but it allows me to support my family and live the life I always dreamed of.
