Episode 64. 7 Money Mistakes I Made When I Started My Practice (Ouch!)

Whooo boy.

Sometimes, it’s a miracle this business of mine ever worked…. but it did, in SPITE of what I’m going to share with you today, lol.

When I started my practice, I had to figure out everything on my own. With no such thing as coaches, masterminds, online courses, or even a business class in grad school, no one taught me how to run a business.

Looking back, I can see at least 7 big mistakes I made, and not surprisingly - they were ALL about how I handled the money.

Sharing those with you today.

In this episode, you’ll hear: 

  1. How to separate business and personal finances
  2. How to make sure you’re ready for taxes
  3. How to handle client accounts and…

…most of all, why understanding how to handle the money side of things is vital to the success of your practice.

My hope is that by sharing my experiences and a few hard-learned lessons, you can avoid some of the pitfalls that I fell into.
