- Does this course include a Simple Practice subscription?
- This course does not include a Simple Practice subscription. However, we do give you a link to a special discount.
- Will you teach me how to work the Simple Practice Webpage?
o We include a free bonus module filmed by Simple Practice that introduces their software and explains what features they offer for billing,
documentation, and scheduling. This video is an overview of how to use their services in private practice but doesn’t teach you how to use the actual software. However, we provide you with a link to their free
tutorials where you can learn to use Simple Practice if you decide to
- Do you discuss what type of business structure I should have (S-Corp, Sole Proprietor, LLC, Partnership etc.) ?
o Although some private practice consultants will offer advice on this topic, this course recommends speaking with a small business attorney as well as your personal accountant. I’ll provide you specially designed and
detailed questions to ask them on this topic. This decision is based on the laws of the state/country you practice in and your very specific financial situation. Different business structures provide different liability
considerations, tax considerations, and legal considerations. Any private practice coach who provides direct advice on this topic runs the risk of providing information that is outside of their scope, so I’d recommend speaking to a CPA or small business attorney.
- I'm an associate, intern, or psych assistant. Will I still get value out of this course? o YES! If you are planning to have a private practice anytime in the future...this course will benefit you.
- I'm a life coach, dietician, doctor, or SLP. Will I still get value out of this course? o This course is specifically created for therapists.
However, approximately 80% of the content applies to almost any healthcare or wellness professional looking to build a private practice. If you participate in the first 3 modules and still don't feel this course is right for you, I offer a full refund. (NOTE: refund requests MUST be submitted within 2 days of purchase, so please review the course as soon as you buy it to make sure it is the right option for you!).
- I follow you on Instagram, does this course feature anything different than what you post?
o Yes, although I offer a lot of free advice and content on Instagram, this course is much more detailed, structured, and geared toward a therapist looking to get serious about opening a private practice soon. My Instagram content is designed to be supplemental to the content covered in this course.
