The Administration part of the private practice business plan can be hard, especially if you are used to being a one-person show.
And if you think you can run the show without any professional support throughout your entire career, you will be spread very thin.
As part of your counseling business plan, you need to create an administration plan to ensure you have the support you need to build a successful practice—and keep your sanity.
Think about the people who you currently have supporting your practice professionally. Then think about the people you may want to include in your group of practice professional support.
Naturally, some people may not be ready for this, so think about this part of your private practice counseling business plan when you are ready.
You know you’re ready when you say to yourself, “I am getting really sick and tired of doing this admin task, and I am now in a place where I can afford to hire someone to do it for me.”
By getting support, you free up emotional space so you can pursue things that drive your interests and passions. This is a vital piece to your professional growth.
Administrative support includes but is not limited to…
- a medical biller (if you accept insurance),
- a bookkeeper,
- an accountant for tax purposes,
- a financial manager/adviser,
- an investment banker,
- a corporate attorney,
- an insurance agent,
- a commercial real estate broker (rent or buy)
- and a virtual/actual assistant.
