Building Blocks of Private Practice: Mindset Makeover

  • University Tower 1034 S Brentwood Blvd (map)

Want to add 'Entrepreneur' to Your List of Roles?

Cogito, ergo sum -- I think, therefore I am. Did you know that research has found evidence that successful entrepreneurs have a very specific set of thoughts and beliefs? How you think about your practice will shape your feelings about it, determine how well you weather the natural ups and downs of the marketplace and influence how you convey your passions for your work to others, thus setting you apart from the crowd and making others want to refer to you. Using therapeutic techniques many of us are familiar with, we will:

  • Identify the top 3 thoughts, habits and strengths that successful people possess

  • Explore the cognitive and behavioral barriers that may exist between you and your ideal practice

  • Work through "Imposter Syndrome" and embrace your expertise

  • Conduct an inventory of strengths and challenges regarding attitudes toward your business or future business and work toward creating a more entrepreneurial mindset

  • Begin to define your niche for your practice
