The Power Of Goals

There is a multitude of reasons why you chose to set up your own therapy business. It could be because you want more free time, a higher income, or work you genuinely feel passionate about. Whatever the reason, a universal truth is that the business has to be profitable. If it's not, then, unfortunately, there is a limit to how long you can keep working as a therapist.

A well run therapy business has the potential to provide you with a very good level of income. Most therapists receive a good hourly rate. What would a higher income provide for you?
Perhaps the freedom to quit your day job and work full time as a therapist.
Perhaps financial security that would remove a lot of your day to day worries.
Maybe the ability to travel or have a beautiful home.

The reasons why you want a successful therapy business are unique to you. However, one fantastic way of increasing your chances of success is to use goal setting and visualisation.

Goal setting is a very effective, simple technique. First of all, buy yourself something to write your goals in. This could be a pretty little notebook or even just an app on your phone. Write down your goal for your business. Make it as specific as you can. Include precise measurements and time frames.
For example, instead of writing,
“I want to be rich,” write “I will earn £70,000 by the end of 2016.”
Or, instead of writing,
“I want to see more clients," write "I will be seeing 25 clients per week by the end of July."
