In this episode of the Private Practice Elevation Podcast, we’re going to be talking all about making the transition from a solo practice to group practice.
It’s a typical business model in private practice: you start out on your own, fill your schedule, then decide to hire more clinicians to start taking on more clients.
However, it’s a big shift to go from running a business with one employee (yourself) to growing and managing a team.
And hiring a team can be an extremely challenging part of making that leap to group practice.
Many therapists struggle to find great clinicians that are a good fit for their group practice.
But when you hire the right people – people who are committed to seeing your private practice succeed – it can make a huge difference in how well and how fast you grow your business.
Today we’re talking with Amanda Landry from My Private Practice Collective and she’s laying out the mistakes therapists make when transitioning from solo to group practice.
She also shares a ton of helpful tips and strategies for marketing your group practice and hiring great therapists to join your team.
