Welcome to a solo episode about a very important topic: Focusing on Your ONE Thing. This episode is an outgrowth of one of my personal goals for 2017, which is to read one business-related book per month. I’ve already read a book that has impacted me greatly and changed the way I approach my business. The book is The One Thing: The Surprisingly Simple Truth Behind Extraordinary Results by Gary Keller and Jay Papasan. The book hones in on the principle that successful businesses with innovative products and services focus on one project at a time, instead of going in many different directions at once.
Learn how these principles can positively impact your business. Join me!

My guest today is Robbin Rockett, a psychologist in CA who focuses her practice on working primarily with single moms. Our topic is building a private practice around your calling and passion. A greater “WHY” makes your practice more sustainable and gives a different perspective than if you just “have a job.” I’ve tried to make this my personal approach, and I’m excited to chat with Robbin about her experiences. Join us now!
