Cultivating your business means doing an honest assessment of what is going well and using your strengths to fortify those aspects that you would like to see imporvment in. This session will be doing the always popular strengths assessment on yourself and your business. Take credit for what has been going well. Put forth your ideas for growth goals. Identify trends in your area that are potentially untapped resources. Deal with competition in a way that strengthens you instead of depletes you. Reaffirm your balanced commitment to profitability and self-care (in other words, learn how to give yourself time off without feeling bad about it!). Today we will be sharing tons of solutions to common practice-building problems like how to attract more ideal full-fee clients.
