How To Generate Income in Private Practice for 2017

The year is almost over 2and many of you are planning how you will be generating income in your private practice.

Look at what worked this past year. Where did your income come from?

For some of you, you offered 1:1 services and you haven’t looked beyond the type of 1:1 services. Who was your ideal client in your practice. Was it more of the couples? the groups? the teens? the individuals? Really take a look at who you served and what part of your income they were.
Did you enjoy that service?
You may have seen a lot of couples in your practice, but did it feel great to you? Part of building a wonderful practice is enjoying the work! Give yourself permission to do more of what you love in 2017.
Did it provide the transformation you had hoped?
You also want to be effective in your work. Maybe you loved couples work but wished you had longer sessions so you could dig more deeply with the couples you worked with. For 2017, make a commitment to do the kind of work that provides the transformation in the best way. It’s ok to give yourself permission to break the mold and do short/longer/intensive/group sessions which are better fitting to your style and how your clients respond.
Is there another way?
You might find that you want to move beyond the 1:1 sessions. The options are endless. We talk about this in our Multiple Streams of Income Training at 2017 might be your year to create something new that meets the needs of your ideal client in a better way! AND that you enjoy!!
Take some time before the new year begins. Reflect on what gets to stay and what needs to change to make this your best year yet!
