How to Sharpen Your Theraprenuer Saw

How to Sharpen Your Theraprenuer Saw

Overheard conversation:

Theraprenuer Wannabe:  “I really am burned out and fed up with working for the man. If I had more business skills and knowledge, I would start my own therapy practice. God just didn’t bless me with a business mind. I mean, I can’t even do long division. It’s hopeless, so I guess I will just stay where I am.”

Actual Theraprenuer:  “Have you thought about reading a few good books? I can recommend some that will get you started. I hear Scott Harmon has a good podcast and website that you can check out. I remember when I first started out. I didn’t know much, but I have learned a ton about business since I started my clinic.”

Theraprenuer Wannabe:  “Yeah, but that’s you. You have a knack for that stuff. Not me. I’m hopeless. I can’t go back to school to get a business degree.”

Actual Therapreneur:  “You don’t have to get a business degree. That would actually be a stupid thing to do. There is so much good information on the internet.  Plus, by reading a few really good books about business you could give it a go and get out of the rut you are in. You know, a lot of these big time business people never went to business school.”

Therapreneur Wanabe:  “You really think I could give it a go? Yeah, maybe so. Imagine me…therapy practice owner. How cool would that be? No more working for the man. What did you say the name of that podcast was?”

OK, this was a fabricated conversation, but I am sure it has happened. Therapists who are riding the fence about starting a private practice are simply struggling with initiative. This is why I created this episode.

After I read a few articles about specific traits and characteristics that entrepreneurs tend to have, I wanted to expand on them and filter them through the lens of a therapy business owner. I also give a few book recommendations and a music review of therapy songs I recently came across on Youtube.
