Do you have an idea for creating another stream of revenue in your private practice?
Maybe you’re passionate about a topic and you want to build a community of people you can serve with your expertise?
But does the thought of actually doing it kinda scare you?
Like, “how do I even get started on this passion project?”
And, “Is it even worth my time?”
If this resonates with you then this episode is for you.
In this episode of the Private Practice Elevation Podcast, I interviewed my good friend, Dr. Ili Rivera Walter.
Ili has built an extremely popular blog, Family Therapy Basics, that has allowed her to take steps to go beyond her one-on-one client work as an LMFT and build a business that suits her life.
One that gives her more time to be with her family and gives her the freedom to fit her demanding schedule.
What I enjoy so much about Ili from hearing her story and seeing her growth over the last couple years (we so happen to be in a mastermind group together) is how she is constantly simplifying her business.
It can be so easy to add more and more to our businesses to try and make things work.
But Ili takes a much more fluid approach to growing a business by consistently evaluating what she’s focusing on and dropping the things that don’t serve her.
This has allowed her to build a massive email list, grow an online membership program and create a platform that she loves, helping people with her expertise and passions.
If you’re thinking about starting that blog, creating that course or doing something new in your business, listen to this one!
