How To Thrive in Counseling Private Practice:

How to Thrive in Private Practice CoverThe Insider’s Guide to Starting and Growing a Counseling Therapy Business
by Dr. Anthony Centore

As counselors, when we start to venture into private practice for the first time, we make the difficult transition from technician to entrepreneur. The immensity of this transition cannot be overstated.

As technicians, we are responsible for our craft—professional counseling. As entrepreneurs, we oversee a much broader set of responsibilities. The change is the equivalent to a pizza dough thrower deciding to open an Italian restaurant. During this transition, many counselors make a fatal error: they assume that running a practice is mostly about doing counseling—about getting their many jobs as a caring counselor done. It’s not.

To many in our industry, that statement is blasphemy. Our care-focused culture tells us that to turn our attention to “business” is to undermine client care. In that vein, many of us are taught that if we provide really good clinical care, we’ll make a steady income and the business will grow around us as our just reward. The truth is: it won’t.

2. Audio Lecture on Building a Practice to Sell

businessman277With the Purchase of “How to Thrive in Counseling Private Practice”, you will also receive an MP3 audio-file, narrated by Dr. Anthony Centore, that teaches you how to build a private practice to sell.

This may be the most important lesson you will ever hear when it comes to starting a private practice. It is also, the information you are least likely to hear anywhere else! No one is talking about this…but you seriously need to know how to create a business that will one day be sellable to an acquirer.

Most counselors have what are known in the business world as “Unsellable Businesses.

This means that if a counselor moves, retires, changes careers, or wants or needs to leave his or her practice for any reason, they lose everything. Instead of selling their companies for a tidy sum, counselors are simply rolling them up—locking the doors, shuttering the windows, switching off the lights, and disconnecting the phones. A counselor might say, “After decades of work, do I have nothing to show for it?” This sounds harsh, because it is.

This audio file will teach you how to design your practice so that it’s worth maximum value to an acquirer. This can be hundreds of thousands, or in some cases well into the 7-figure range, for a small practice! This cannot be missed!
