Being a business owner is not easy but it is so rewarding. One of the things that helps us to travel this entrepreneurial road safely is solid information. I sat down with Tamara Suttle, of Private Practice from the Inside Out, for this Tuesday Q&A Interview, to discuss the journey of mental health professionals in private practice. We touch on everything from starting a new practice to ways that mental health professionals accept payment for their services and how to transition to a cash practice, if that is what you desire.
Just Starting Out:
When it comes to leaving that 9 to 5 and being your own boss, you have endless dreams of freedom. This interview will give you great insight to prevent you from jumping out of that 9 to 5 environment and “off a cliff.”
Both Feet In and Ready to Transition:
You are already in private practice and you are accepting insurance but you think you would like to transition to cash only. This interview will give you a way to have that conversation with your clients. In addition, you get advice on how to do this while being ethical and adhering to insurance rules.

So here’s a gift to help you with your training…
