FREE TRAINING: How to Start a Speech Therapy Private Practice

Staying Small on Purpose with Kelsey Martin

Picture

There are so many benefits to having a private practice, but one of the most desirable benefits is the ability to have a flexible schedule.

Kelsey Martin, who is joining me in this episode, knows all about the balance that private practice can offer. She created a private practice so that she could spend as much time as possible with her young children while financially providing for her family as an SLP and business owner.

Kelsey is the owner of Playful Communication in Waxhaw, North Carolina. She specializes in serving the pediatric population and particularly enjoys working with children ages birth to 5 and those that have Down syndrome like her sweet boy, Isaac. Kelsey is married to Nate, and they have two beautiful children – Isaac and Rae. Her kiddos are her inspiration for her private practice and the flexibility it allows. She keeps her practice “small on purpose” to allow her to be with her children and show up for all of life’s big and little moments with them! 

Kelsey explains in the episode that she “struck gold” because she was able to build something that is perfect for her and her family, so we dive into how she started her private practice, what her days look like, why she is staying small right now and so much more.

In Today’s Episode, We Discuss:

  • Shifting from being work-focused to family-focused
  • Slowly making your private practice present
  • Designing a private practice that helps you reach your goals
  • Defining success as a business owner
  • Making decisions with confidence
  • Intentionally thinking of yourself as a CEO

​I love that Kelsey has consistently trusted the timing of her life and the growth of her private practice. She is using her private practice as a vehicle to take control of her professional, personal and financial life while helping herself and her family. I can’t wait to see what she does next!

Being able to help her throughout her journey has been so amazing. She was once in the Start Your Private Practice program, but she has now moved onto my higher-level program which is helping her get to the six-figure level and grow her private practice.
