055: Hiring and Compensating Additional Practitioners

One of the most common questions I get asked is: “How do I know when (or if) it’s time to hire another practitioner?” And I just love these types of questions. This is one of the main reasons why I started this podcast – to get you moving toward growing your biggest and best practice ever!  

Whether you’re a nutritionist, a health coach, a chiropractor, an acupuncturist, or something else entirely, you need to be able to weigh the pros and cons of bringing on another professional. And if you want to achieve greater financial independence and business growth, you’re most likely going to have to broach this subject at some point. 

Hang with me as I dive into the advantages of adding another practitioner and if/when it might be a viable consideration. We’ll also cover some of the potential pitfalls you will want to avoid along the way. 

At the end of the day, I want to help you make an informed decision, have a plan to grow your business and of course, increase your revenue!
