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 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 we are all familiar with, we will explore what cognitive and behavioral barriers may exist between you and your ideal practice. We will conduct an inventory of strengths and challenges regarding attitudes toward your business or future business and work toward creating a more entrepreneurial mindset.
This is the first workshop in an 8-part series for Private Practice start-ups. For more on the other offerings throughout the year go to www.gwa-stl.com. Choose the ones you want to attend or sign up for all 8! By this time next year, you could own the practice of your dreams!
