How to avoid the feast and famine cycle in your private practice

Being self-employed and running your own private practice has many many benefits to you. But one of the downsides is the potential insecurity of the ‘feast and famine’ ie busy periods followed by quiet periods. 

So in this week’s podcast, I’ll be exploring this, and sharing how you can protect yourself, your practice and your income. 


In this episode we look at:

  • My personal experience of this and the lessons I learned
  • Why it happens
  • How to protect yourself
  • How protecting yourself might sound counterintuitive
  • The not very sexy but highly effective solution

In order to run a successful and sustainable practice, it’s important to take control. And in the next episode, I’ll be sharing a super simple way to take control of your diary so you can make or find the time in order keep a steady stream of new clients to your practice.

What to do next
