Welcome! My guest today is Allison Puryear from the Abundance Practice Building community. Allison practices in Asheville, NC, and has a thriving coaching business for private practitioners.

Today’s topic is one that is a struggle for many of us: Learning to say NO as a business owner. Why is saying NO such a hard thing? How does this apply to private practice? We’ll talk about these questions and more as we look at fees, niching, sliding scales, and boundaries. Join me for a great conversation with Allison!
