Today’s episode is a bittersweet one since it’s the final one of 2017. I always take a break from the podcast from Thanksgiving through the end of December, to focus on self-care and give myself some rest. Usually, these final episodes are different in some way; as an example, listen to Episode 100 if you haven’t already. Today’s show, however, is a reflective one, as I share some of what I’ve learned about private practice building. Join me!

I’ll admit that I’ve been fascinated by the unspoken aspects of creating culture. So, what are my big values? How do we make hires that align with that culture? Let’s get some answers to these questions and MORE from Kate and Katie!
