Starting From Scratch to Successfully in Private Practice: Student Panel with Claire Powers, Asha LeRay, and Lexey Pruitt


Ever wish you could hear directly from the “regular” SLPs or OTs who transformed into successful private practitioners after going through the Start Your Private Practice Program? 

Their words? 

Their experience? 

Their outcomes from being in the program? 

Well, now you can! 

In this episode of Private Practice Success Stories, I’m going to introduce you to 3 amazing Start Your Private Practice student alums: Lexey Pruitt, Claire Powers, and Asha LeRay.

All 3 of these Start students came from different backgrounds and had their own unique reasons for starting their own private practices. Some had experienced burnout early on in their careers, and others wanted more freedom and flexibility in their day-to-day lives for their current – or future families.

All 3 of these students had the same fears, doubts, and hesitations as you do, but they decided to go for it, join The Start Your Private Practice Program, and create a new future for themselves! 


In Today’s Episode, We Discuss:


  • How fast your life can completely change with a private practice
  • How a private practice helps you do what you are passionate about and receive the financial stability you deserve
  • Tips for maintaining your private practice even during a big move
  • What it’s like to transition from part-time to full-time in your private practice
  • How you can use your skills to grow your private practice
  • The power of working in under-served populations
  • How having a private practice can change the life of your whole family
  • The freedom to work with clients the way you know can truly help them
  • Great ways to get clients for your private practice
  • The confidence being a private practice owner gives you
  • The best way to grow your income in a shorter amount of time


Weren’t those stories so powerful? I hope that as you listened to their stories you saw yourself in various aspects of their lives and can see how they’ve transformed their careers by being in private practice.
