In last week’s article, I addressed the question, “What does it take to succeed in private practice?” For many clinicians, especially those who are first generation college grads and business owners, the idea of carving out a new professional path is a daunting one.
When you build a private practice, you are responsible for its successes and failures. Your business’s fate – be that to thrive or go down in a beautifully tragic ball of flames – depends on your ability to honestly examine your behavior and face your fears head on. Struggle is inevitable.
So why would anyone choose this path?!
This week, I asked a few therapists to weigh in on the question, “Is private practice worth it?” I got a flood of responses that reflect both the challenges and rewards of embarking on the Therapreneurial journey.
