You’ve done a LOT of work to build your business to a place now where it is flowing, sustaining, and a full-time income. You’ve got the amount of clients that you need or want, maybe more than you need or want. Now you finally have some room to pause, reflect, and develop something that elegantly adds to your business, while also serving you, your clients, and your community!
Ok- so you’ve dug deep into your business and you’ve streamlined to create some time. You’ve looked at your current business plan in your business and taken steps to ensure your CURRENT stream of income is truly profitable and done the work needed to tweak it if it isn’t (raising your fee, dropping that insurance panel that pays terribly, etc.) Now it is time to set up your current business and current stream of income for a 4 month vacation.
I know… I know… your money issue is that you need income coming in… But, is that it? Whatever issues you have with money in your personal life, in your business finances, and your business plan- those patterns tend to track to any new venture including one relating to passive income.
You love your work. You love helping people. But, you’ve realized you can only see so many clients and do really great work. Or, maybe you’ve realized that the kind of work you’ve done for so many years is starting to wear on your body in a way that you need some time to recover. Or, maybe you just want to live debt free or send your kid to college. Whatever the reason, you are searching for how to make more money, or passive income ideas, or passive income for therapists for inspiration and how-tos.
