It’s clear why Kelly Higdon is one of the best private practice consultants out there. She is truly walking the walk. A couple of years ago, she realized that she did not want to see therapy clients all day. So she sold the assets to her practice, moved all of her services to an online format, and now works no more than 20 hours a week. So inspiring! Here are a few things we talk about:
- Figuring out the best way to spend your time in the morning
- Deciding what’s essential in your practice. Outsource the rest.
- How to check your email just once a day
- What does your “perfect day” in the practice ACTUALLY look like? Maybe you shouldn’t be doing testing.
- Spicing up reports and bringing more meaning to a sometimes mundane task
Cool Things Mentioned in This Episode
- Kelly’s private practice consulting business, ZynnyMe
- The Perfect Day exercise
- The Rescue Time app
- Pomodoro or the Tomato Timer
About Kelly Higdon
I help my clients find alignment with who they are in everyday life and their talent, skills, strengths, passions and all that ooey gooey good stuff. Then we take a massive sledge hammer and smash the blocks that are stopping them from creating the life they want.
On any given day you will find me writing, meeting with my psychotherapy or coaching clients, running a webinar for therapists, providing consultation with private practice owners and making lots of room for play time with my family. My hair constantly changes. I laugh a lot. I am sarcastic. I am direct. I am compassionate. I give a shit about the people I work with. I run other businesses I love. I coach, train, kick ass and teach at zynnyme.com. I push, educate and inspire in the Business School Bootcamp.
Above all, more and more, I simply me.
