When you invest in yourself, both you and your practice grow.

Ever sign up for the newest free resource and think to yourself, “this will definitely help me”, and then never look at it again?

Freebies are amazing tools and I am a true supporter of everything free! However, free resources definitely do not replace investing in one’s self and private practice. And here’s why:

Free resources do not replace investing in one’s self and private practice.

Invest in Yourself to Grow Your Practice

(1) By investing in yourself, you learn new skills that can open doors in your practice. Whether you are learning a new therapeutic approach, a new marketing strategy, or a new system or process that changes how you do business, you are learning new skills that can open doors to new and exciting opportunities. Learning new skills can grow your practice, build relationships and networks, and create sustainability that puts your practice on the map.

(2) By investing in yourself, you can receive a return on investment (whether it’s time or money). Learning a new skill can help you become more efficient and effective in your private practice. When you spend less time trying to figure out steps or processes to something, you can spend more time doing the things you love – and that actually makes you money.

(3) By investing in yourself, you become more accountable to yourself. When you invest money into something, you are much more likely to follow through due to the financial commitment you’ve made.

*Self-disclosure* I’m notorious for signing up for the latest freebie to simply leave it in my inbox and never read it again. But when I pay for something, I always follow through, because I want my bang-for-my-buck – who wants to waste money?

Now, I want to be super clear here, I’m not saying to go out and buy every product or service out there. But I am encouraging you to take the time to evaluate what might help you push the needle in your private practice so both you and your practice grow. You don’t have to do it all, just the things that will get you the best return on investment for your time and money.

4 Day Challenge

Over the next 3 business days, I challenge you to evaluate your private practice’s overall efficiency and effectiveness, and identify where it could use a boost.

On day 4, set aside 15 minutes into your calendar so you can sit down quietly and list practical ways that you can invest in yourself and your private practice. Think of ways that push the needle so you can open more doors, save more time and money, get the best return on investment and keep yourself accountable.

I’m still a huge proponent of freebies, so feel free to opt-in to all things you find beneficial. But I’m also a believer in investing in one’s self for continual self and business growth.

Please connect with me and share your results! I would love to support you on your journey.
