From CCC to LLC: Starting a Private Practice Out of Grad School with Ashley Perkins

From CCC to LLC: Starting a Private Practice Out of Grad School with Ashley Perkins

Are you ready to take control over your professional, personal and financial life?

My guest in this episode, Ashley Perkins, knew this was something she wanted even before finishing grad school!

She knew that she wanted to be in business for herself because she wanted control over her time and the time that she could spend with her family, so she started seeing private clients as soon as she earned her CCC.

​Ashley is the founder of Perkins Therapy Group, which was established upon recognizing the need for specialized speech, feeding, and orofacial myofunctional therapy within the Eunice area.

Ashley and I both believe that private practice is a vehicle to get what you want, so she is talking to us all about how she took a chance on herself and created the life that she had imagined for herself and her family.


In Today’s Episode, We Discuss:


  • Deciding to lean into your dream
  • Why saying yes is so monumental even if it’s to something small
  • Leaving a full-time job to take the leap into private practice
  • Why you should try to keep your personal expenses lean
  • Navigating overhead costs and how to keep your business lean
  • Why it’s so important to understand what you want
  • How to use your dream to create a plan

I encourage you to spend some time identifying your personal, professional, and financial goals, and make a plan to make it happen, just like Ashley did!
