Is it worth it?

Other courses will provide you an overview in a couple of hours. They will give you tips that make it seem easy to get a practice started. Then you will be left hanging without the knowledge of how to keep your business running.

Did you know the number 1 reason private practices fail is because the Clinician isn't a business person? That's right! You must be able to run a business to have a thriving private practice. Invest in the knowledge that will make your practice amazing... by learning how to run a business ethically and responsibly.

This is a cost-effective and EXTREMELY helpful way to learn key points in starting a small business. If you tried to figure this information out on your own, it would take you weeks, and many mistakes could be made along the way. This is a smart way to interact with an expert and glean from her own experiences.
