What a No-Cancellation Policy Can Mean for Your Practice

Having a structured schedule in your practice and life can make running your practice and business easier. Putting policies in place and enforcing them (kindly) can help you keep that structure in place. That includes a no-cancellation policy. A no-cancellation policy can help you keep your schedule on track, so you’re not frantically trying to move childcare or a dentist appointment to reschedule a client. 

For anyone who is like, “what’s a no-cancellation policy” it’s basically an agreement i…

DIY & Low-Cost Marketing Isn't Yielding Results?

It might feel like you’ve taken all the bootstrapping DIY  self-directed (free) advice that’s out there, you’re not full yet, and you’re feeling a time crunch like there’s not enough time in a day to get done what you need to do.  Let’s say if you’ve utilized all the cheap or free marketing strategies and recommendations and haven't gotten full, I am left with a lot of questions. By cheap, obviously we’re talking low price tag, right? I don't know of any totally free marketing strategies that c…

Doing It Right Right At The Start

Even when we’re entry-level, fresh out of grad school, we usually want to ensure we’re doing everything in our power to give our clients the best resources. How can we know if we’re giving our clients the best care if we maybe don’t have the best resources and guidance as clinicians?

The first supervisor I had in an agency took me to the outlet mall to pick something up that she needed for her son's birthday during our supervision: we chatted in the car. She showed movies during group therapy f…

How to Show Up As Yourself In Videos

It took me some time and some work to get comfortable on video - my Vimeo account is just a wasteland of starts and stops, flubbing what I'm saying, or just feeling like it wasn't quite there yet. I have a lot to say on this subject so buckle up.

In the Abundant Practice Builder's Facebook Group I posted one of the first videos I tried to film. My scripts were written, my content was something I was proud of. I was launching a program and I know it was super-helpful too. I borrowed fancy photog…

Happy Boss's Day, Allison!

Hey everybody, it’s Megan here with a sneak blog!

I wanted to take this space and write a quick piece on National Boss’s Day, Allison, and what Abundance Practice Building means to me.

You could say I’m a late bloomer in a lot of ways. I didn’t even really know that was a thing that existed out of teen movies - I always thought that maybe if you didn’t bloom by your high school graduation you were some kind of cactus/potato hybrid, something kinda squat and potentially prickly and that’s all there…

Guest Blog: How to Make Weekly Blogging Ridiculously Easy and Fun

How to Make Weekly Blogging Ridiculously Easy and Fun by Natalie Moore

As private practitioners, we know the benefits of blogging for our practice.

1) It builds our website’s S.E.O., making it easier for our ideal client to find us.

2) It helps clients get to know us, starting the therapeutic relationship before a phone call is even made.

3) We build an audience to connect with over time that we can offer additional services to – should we choose to publish a book, launch an eCourse, etc.

The Abundance Mindset: It Only Took Me Two Years to Develop It

Danielle Kepler has been a big part of the Abundance Practice-Builders FB Group since its early days. I refer to her Insurance Credentialing & Billing For Mental Health Professionals FB Group at least weekly. This woman KNOWS insurance. I love this blog post because Danielle gets real about feeling competitive, being overly full, and toeing the line of burnout… and how she stopped being an “insecure shit” and embraced a more abundant mindset.

The Role of Fear in Your Practice

“Feel the fear and do it anyway” is a mantra I’ve lived the last 20 years of my life by. At 19, after my second hospitalization for an eating disorder, depression, and anxiety it finally clicked that my natural reaction to fear (i.e. avoidance), wasn’t necessarily the instinct I should follow. And while eating what was on my plate, putting myself out there, giving less than 100% in school, work, friendships full on terrified me, I realized I would be stuck forever if I didn’t push through.

Imposter Syndrome

Imposter Syndrome

Hello. Welcome to the rest of your life. It’s not what any of us want to accept but, if we keep growing, we are all going to struggle with Imposter Syndrome off and on, forever. Like, I fully expect to be 110 years old and having some doubts about my abilities.

Instead of falling into the shit of it, since it feels awful, I’ve been very curious about it in my life and my consulting clients’ lives. I have some good news for you: Imposter Syndrome is actually a good thing in a num…

50+ Blog Post Ideas in 30 Minutes or Less

So, you’re convinced that a blog is a good idea for your practice and you promise to be consistent and provide value. You’re all bought in but drawing a complete blank about what to write. No problem! Get out a sheet of paper or open a blank document and let’s generate 50+ ideas in the next 30 minutes or so. Not all of them will be great, but I keep even my lame ideas because sometimes they spark a good idea later. The trick to this is to not overthink it. For some of you that’s akin to stopping…
