Private Practice Success Stories in 2019: What is Working in Private Practice NOW?

Private Practice Success Stories in 2019: What is Working in Private Practice NOW?

10 years ago when Kelly and I started helping therapists grow private practices there was next to no information online. Everything was behind membership sites or required expensive coaching to access. In the last 10 years the resources for therapists in private practices have exploded!

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!
