She Retired Early Then Grew Her Practice… and Her Income with Claudia Davisson

She Retired Early Then Grew Her Practice... and Her Income with Claudia Davisson

Have you always wanted to start a private practice but are worried it’s too late? 

In this episode of Private Practice Success Stories, I sat down with Claudia Davisson who started her private practice after she retired! What started out as a way to supplement her retirement income has turned into a thriving private practice that earns her exponentially more money than she was making when she worked in the schools. 

Her private practice is a mix of private pay clients, insurance, and multi-school contracts. She hires contractors to provide services. This is a true private practice success story of someone who went from a side hustle to a booming private practice owner. 

Claudia started in the Start Your Private Practice program, and then she became a mentor for her students, where she is truly beloved. Claudia is also an alum of our Grow Your Private Practice program. It has been amazing to watch her progress, and I know you’ll enjoy hearing her story and getting to know her in our paid programs.


In Today’s Episode, We Discuss:


  • Why Claudia decided to start a private practice and go full time 
  • How multiple contracts grew her business 
  • The benefits of hiring virtual assistants and contractors 
  • The power of changing habits when needed
  • Non-pushy marketing tips 
  • Why you can’t give up 
  • The potential and possibility for your private practice


I just love Claudia. She has such amazing energy and she wasn’t afraid to try something new. She’s a fantastic practitioner and an amazing mentor for the students in the Start Your Private Practice program. If you want to connect with her, make sure to follow her on Instagram and Facebook and check out her website and TpT store
