Danni Augustine is a speech-language pathologist and alum of the Start Your Private Practice program who was able to pay off $52,000 worth of debt and double her school SLP salary through her private practice.

Isn’t that impressive?! She is very much into finances, so she educates other SLPs on how to get ahead financially.

This episode features an Instagram Live that Danni and I did where we discuss several ways that SLPs can get ahead financially without fear.

Throughout the episode, we talk about so many things, but we focus on the importance of investing in yourself so you can improve your finances as an SLP. Whether you already have a private practice or you are interested in starting one, these tips all about finances will help you prepare for a better financial future.


In Today’s Episode, We Discuss:


  • The rate of inflation and how that relates to our salaries
  • Starting a private practice as a way to create other streams of income 
  • Investing in yourself as a way to make more money
  • Investment mindset versus transaction mindset
  • Why SLPs should be earning more
  • Whether or not you should wait to start your private practice until you pay off your debt
  • Examples of smart ways to invest your money as an SLP

Danni is an action taker, and that is clear in this episode. If you’re an SLP who is stressed out about finances and wants to get out of debt, I hope this episode with Danni is super helpful to you.

You can also send me a DM with the word “calculator” and I will send you a resource that will help you figure out your finances and understand how to make your private practice happen.

Whether you want to start a private practice or grow your existing private practice, I can help you get the freedom, flexibility, fulfillment, and financial abundance that you deserve. Send me a DM with the word “start” or “grow” – whichever one you need help with! We will figure out if I can help you, and if I can, I will guide you to the right resources and/or program.
