I'm Licensed...Now What?

We received the following question via our Ask Allison submission form: If I am licensed, do I need anything else to start seeing clients besides insurance?

Short answer: So many things. 

The first thing I want to do is remind you that you’re starting a business. A bonafide, real capital B business. I would rather you expect there’s a ton to do than that there’s little, mainly so you won’t be disappointed. 

I want to be clear that the steps you have to take to be a legit business are not hard. …

No Shows and Late Cancellations

One of the questions I see pop up most often in the Abundance Practice-Builders Facebook Group (feel free to join) and in day-to-day questions I get from private practitioners is how to handle last minute cancellations and no-shows. I put these questions in two camps: the I-don’t-know-what-my-policy-should-be camp and the I-don’t-know-how-to-enforce-my-policy camp. Let’s talk about both.

What Should My Policy Be?

Shortcuts to Getting Paperwork Done

Today’s seemingly unsexy topic will actually help you build clientele. Really! Let me explain why.

We’ve all been there. Somehow we got behind on your notes. Boring, awful, annoying notes. If you work in an agency, you’re probably VERY familiar with this, but you have some sort of system that makes you get it done by a certain time (audits, standard of care agreements, bosses).

I get it, they can be a pain, require diagnosis, reimburse as little as they can get away with and require a whole extra step that you as a business owner then have to manage (or pay someone else to manage). As a practice-builder, I'm not supposed to encourage you to even consider managed care. I'm supposed to say "follow your private pay dream! And I do! When the circumstances are right.
