Episode 18. Why I Stopped Doing Free Consultations (And what works oh-so-much better.)

So here’s the thing.
Free consultations don’t work. 

Which is why I no longer offer them - in either one of my businesses. 
Not as a therapist. And not as a private practice coach. 

Does that sound mean? It’s not. 
Does it sound like bad business strategy? It’s not.

That’s what we’re talking about today. :) 

In this episode, you’ll learn: 

  • why I think free consultations are actually misleading. 
  • how a simple change in strategy can set your business apart and stop wasting your time.
  • how a customized initial consult actually increases your income AND better serves your clients!

And I have a suggestion at the end for a brief exercise that I think you’ll find eye-opening. 

Tired of wasting time on the phone with people you never meet - and don’t actually help?

This can change that.

Listen to this short episode, and see what I mean. 

P.S. By the way! I’m looking for people to interview for the Ideal Practice podcast. Are you a healing arts professional with an interesting story to share? Reach out to me. Have a related business that provides services specifically to healing arts professionals, like web design, marketing, accounting, etc.? Reach out to me. I’d love to hear what you have to share and see if it might be a good fit for my audience. Thanks!
