Jennifer you are amazing!!! Your 2nd book Pursuing Private Practice 10 Steps To Grow your own business is fabulous. I’m totally immersed in it. I love your section about hiring an intern since I have two interns now and it’s giving me wonderful guidelines. I feel so validated because I kind of figured this out on my own! Amazing, I’ve been in private practice for almost 40 years, and I have always been a student of life. It’s terrific especially learning from one smart savvy experienced gal like you.
