The Pursuing Private Practice Podcast with Jennifer McGurk
In this episode:
I absolutely loved this raw and honest conversation with Amie Guice.
We talk about what it means to be “full,” or booked out, as a private practice dietitian. This means different things to all of us depending on our life situation and goals, and we discuss those different factors in this episode. Only you can decide when you’re booked out.
We also talk about what to do next when you do reach that place. This is actually a pretty common occurrence in private practice — once you’ve been in practice for a while, you will often reach the point where you don’t have enough time to take on all of the clients who need support! Amie and I talk through what we both did when we reached that point, and I hope this conversation will give you some ideas of what you could do next.
Some of the topics discussed include:
- Amie’s private practice journey, from “side hustle” to having a full client load
- How to know when you’re calendar is full
- Working “in” your business vs. working “on” your business
- Utilizing a “parking lot” as your business grows
I have a brand new (FREE) video series out where I’m sharing the top 3 boundaries that are important for business growth and to thrive as a business owner, based on a lot of trial and error and years of experience as a dietitian. Sign up at www.pursuingprivatepractice.com/selfcare
