The #1 thing that grew my private practice

The #1 thing that grew my private practice

I have owned a private practice, a coaching practice, a life coaching practice, and a product based business. If I compare how each has performed over time, I see a common thread regarding what has contributed to my success.  

I know success is truly a self-defined term. For me, it is a combination of financial, emotional, relational and spiritual outcomes. I do not feel successful if I shift in only one area of my life. I believe my action should leverage into other parts. For example, even if I make some sort of money, but it takes me away more from my family - that does not feel successful. But to generate income, feel closer to my loved ones, have time for my own health and spiritual life - that is of value to me.

How to Fall in Private Practice

How to Fall in Private Practice

Since starting derby, I get to hear often "if you aren't falling, you aren't learning."

I don't want to fall though. I hate it. It hurts. Not to mention the first bad fall I had where I jammed my finger and busted my tailbone or the other time I literally super manned it across the track on my chest. OUCH!

When I told people what I did for a living, I would often get responses like "I could never sit and listen to people's problems all day!" The truth is, we know that good therapy isn't about just listening to people's problems- it is about sitting in truth with another human and holding the vision of what can be. 

You have a vision for every client who walks through your door. No- this doesn't mean you are trying to fit your client into your box of how they should be. But, you know what it looks like when someone is unfettered, when they make that shift to owning their life, being intentional, and enjoying it. When you see them shift from being a victim of experiences, circumstances, or limitations to an empowered person who is going to live their life in the best way they know how.
