106: Using Stories to Start a Brand-New Practice with Kimberly Potter

Our brains are wired to listen to stories. And as the story is being told, we instinctively look for similarities, or ways we ‘fit’ into the story. And today’s guest, Kimberly Potter, has mastered the art of using stories to communicate what she does in a way that leaves people excited and ready to work with her. 💫

A registered nurse since 1989, Kimberly left conventional healthcare and opened a private practice, Rapha Health & Wellness, in 2013. But after leaving her Minnesota practice and moving to the ☀️ sunshine state ☀️, she had to start over. But it didn’t take her long to find her groove, hire some help, and start serving her ideal patients once again. 🛄
