There's a difference between owning a private practice...and owning a thriving, oozing with Benjamins, glow in the dark, unicorn of a private practice.
I'm ready for my 6 figure, cash pay, private practice!
The biggest reason to my cash pay, private practice, success and soon to be the biggest part your private practice success...
...is The Lazy Startup 2.0.
The Lazy Startup 2.0 has the exact method that I used for my private practice to bring in 10+ cash paying clients a month, locking into both my employee's and my schedule.
"Amy was the fire extinguisher to the grease fire of starting my private practice. When things flared: emotions, questions, self doubt, anxiety, and the ever favorite 'imposter syndrome,' she was there. Sharing advice, giving direction, cussing and laughing with me about it along the way. Her wisdom, humor, intellect, and honesty (no BS here) were exactly what I needed to calm the F*@% down before burning the entire thing to the ground out of fear. My practice is now thriving after just a few months, and fire extinguishers have new meaning in my life and in sessions with clients."
"Last July I went from seeing a few clients part time after my 9-5 job to having a full time private practice with NO training from my grad program on how to do that. I had bits and pieces of knowledge, but I didn't know what I didn't know. There were many "aha" moments when going through this course, as Amy really went through each topic piece by piece, talking about the basics so I didn't miss a thing. After I finished the course, I had a solid website, a handle on all of my paperwork needed to get started, and a good sense on where to start networking and marketing. Amy helped me set a solid foundation, so as I've grown my practice over the years I can build on what I developed during this course, and make all of her lessons work for me. I can honestly say that compared to some of my colleagues who, for all intents and purposes, are very similar to me in style, approach, target demographics, etc, I get more potential clients reaching out on sites where I have the profile I created with Amy's template."
"I found Amy on a Google search when I was trying to learn how to start a private practice. I purchased The Lazy Startup 2.0 The modules are to the point and informative. She is fun, professional, prompt on customer service, and supportive. I also hired her to write copy for a retreat and was satisfied with the quick turn around. I had positive feedback from it and found it compelling to attract attendees. If you're looking for support on marketing, she is your gal!"
It's scary and exciting to think about starting a private therapy practice, let alone, a cash pay practice right from the start.
You've been thinking about starting your own practice and are finally going to do it! But...you have no clue where to start, are overwhelmed by all the podcasts, blogs, books, coaches, and advice from your fellow therapists.
You want to start a cash pay (or private pay) private practice, right off the bat. But feel terrified you'll fail. And putting all the information out there together, is like untangling 987 necklaces...while jumping on a pogo stick.
Piecing all of this together feels exhausting and you are just wanting all of it in one spot, with a bow and a puppy on top. Neatly packaged. And you want it start to finish, with quality tips and tricks so your private practice runs itself.
Why start a cash pay, private counseling practice?
Well...you and I both know why. But I'm going to list some of your most "cherished" times (heavy sarcasm) anyways:
Sharing an office (enough said), delayed payments from insurance, super "fun" hour long phone calls to figure out insurance issues, asking for time off, seeing 876 client's a week (that aren't in your niche), going by someone else's rules (and maybe chaotic sh*t show)...
...and one of the biggest things you are sick of is making the bacon bits instead of the thick cut, hickory smoked, bacon.
And you deserve the thick cut bacon. To not work 897 hours a week (maybe just 10-15). To have your own structure. To not deal with insurance. To have your own office. To have a private practice that runs itself. So you can frolic and tumble in all the other things you want to do in life.
You had me at bacon.
So why are you waiting?
Well...because this is literally pants sh*tting to start your own practice. A cash pay practice.
You've heard how hard it can be from other lil' therapists. How the market is tough, your area is saturated with therapists, you have to do social media to stand out (yuck), and you know So-And-So has a cash pay practice and it's just not all that it's cracked up to be...
...and they're thinking about trying their luck with the Powerball instead.
What if you could have client's coming in your door (an actual door or a virtual door) within the first three months of starting this course? What if within a year of completing this course you had 10-15 cash paying clients (or more) locked into your schedule? What is that worth to you?
You think you can't nail this...but you can.
- You can do this without any business experience.
- You can do this without knowing anything about websites or marketing.
- You can do this even if you're in a therapist-dense area.
- You can do this without a long waiting list.
- You can do this without being in the field very long.
- You can do this even if you feel like you're going to fail.
"Amy is truly one-of-a-kind. Before I decided to purchase The Lazy Start-up, Amy was so kind and willing to answer any questions that I had (and I had A LOT of questions) and the moment we connected, I knew she was the right coach for me. Her warmth, calm presence and ability to inspire confidence in my ability to start my own practice was the energetic match that I needed and it just felt "right"... like I could finally breathe life into this thing that I have wanted to do for so long."
"...Amy made this dream seem possible and exciting! ... The entire course is important, but I'm especially grateful for the first few modules outlining the nitty gritty basics to starting this kind of business- that was the scariest part for me. The modules guided me organically through the otherwise confusing process of bookkeeping, taxes, filing an LLC, getting liability insurance, and identifying HIPAA secure platforms for communicating. All of my questions were answered in this course from the legal aspects, to the otherwise confusing coding of a website, and the creative, fun side of picking colors for a website.This is an all in one course for starting a private practice and I'm so grateful I found it!"
"I don't know where my practice would be today without Amy. I was so fortunate to have her support whenever I needed to ask questions, looking for better resources, direction, or just someone to bounce ideas off of. I am forever grateful for how reliable, giving and passionate Amy was throughout the process of starting my new practice, which is beyond busy and feels like it’s on autopilot.”
"I was looking for help in all things for starting my own private practice. I had no idea what to do or how to get started and was so scared of doing something wrong legally. The course made me feel incredibly confident and secure in my decision to start my own practice, LOVED the law of attraction information. I really love working together, you are available and give great recommendations/advice/support. I will be ready to start my practice by the end of the course which is life changing for me!"
I need you to know...
...that I'm a HUGE introvert. So that means this course is set up so success and cash coming in are big, and stress and time spent running your practice are low...like winner of the championship play-offs of Limbo, low.
