Over the past 6 months or so, I've been hearing from a lot of you that you're considering dropping insurance and building a private pay practice. We've touched on this in other podcast episodes, but after hearing all your questions and concerns, I knew it was time to discuss it again. And I immediately knew who to interview. Mary Ellen Connett is a former client of mine and just went through this transition herself after 34 years in the field.

When Mary Ellen started this process, she didn't want more clients. She wanted fewer clients. She wanted to drop managed care and attract fee-for-service clients. Her goal was to decrease her caseload without decreasing her income. Mary Ellen went through a turbulent few months, and in this interview, she candidly shares her experience. However, after just 90 days, she was earning more than she had been previously, seeing fewer clients, and working just 3 days a week.

Want to know how she did it? Mary Ellen's story will inspire you to create the practice you've dreamed of, and develop the confidence to make the changes you need to get there.
