7 Worst Business Mistakes: Podcast 079

This podcast is the narrated version of my article The 7 Worst Business Mistakes I Made as a New Therapist.

By giving you the seven worst therapy business mistakes I made, I hope you can speed up the process of developing a successful practice!

In this episode I talk about:

  • Solo practitioner reality bites
  • Expecting clients to beat a path to my door
  • Settling for fantasy over action
  • Feeling pathetically grateful to be paid
  • Not pursuing ideas which made money
  • Not saying no to save time and money
  • Not using money to make money
  • Trying to do it all myself
