FREE TRAINING: How to Start a Speech Therapy Private Practice

Real Talk About Private Practice with Danni Augustine

Picture

Are you ready to hear a no-nonsense, straightforward story about starting a private practice?

In this episode, Danni Augustine is describing the steps that she took to get her private practice off of the ground and her motivations for doing so through a keep-it-simple approach.

Danni has been an SLP for 5 years. After working in a variety of settings, she found her love for dyslexia intervention, myofunctional therapy, feeding and all things birth-3. Not only has diving into these areas helped her business but it allowed her to fall in love with the SLP field again. She went from almost switching careers to now having a “boutique-style” private practice in Baton Rouge, LA, serving families in an office and home setting. Connecting with families and building relationships is what gets her up every morning (and her 20 cent coffee of course). 

In addition to her love for therapy, she has found a new passion for helping other SLPs gain freedom in their finances and their careers. She is hoping to build a community of SLPs grounded in transparency, humility and understanding the immense value of having a plan.

In Today’s Episode, We Discuss:

  • How it can be hard to make a difference in certain settings
  • Why you don’t have to have an entrepreneurial mindset to start a private practice
  • Making responsible financial decisions before starting a private practice to take the pressure off
  • Examples of ways to keep your overhead low
  • Taking intentional steps
  • The many different ways you can have a private practice

I love that Danni talks about how she didn’t originally have any interest in private practice, but she felt like she had to start one. Now, she enjoys the four F’s of private practice: freedom, flexibility, fulfillment and finances.

Danni’s keeps everything simple, and it made getting started way less overwhelming. I hope listening to this episode inspires, teaches and pushes you to start your private practice because if Danni can do it, so can you!

I want to remind you that Danni followed the steps in the Start Your Private Practice System, and Spring Enrollment for that is getting ready to open! Make sure you’re on the waitlist www.startyourprivatepractice.com/waitlist!
