Today’s solo episode topic may be one you’ve thought a lot about, or it may be something that hasn’t crossed your mind. We are discussing the ins and outs of creating a membership site, something that comes up frequently in discussions in the STC Facebook community. It’s something I’ve been trying to figure out over the past 13 months.

We are talking about what goes into creating a membership site, how to launch it, how to create it, and more. I’m sharing the lessons I’ve learned along the way, and I really hope this closer look at creating a membership site is helpful for you, either right now, or as something you might utilize in the future.Join us!

I’m excited to share with you my conversation with Amy Van Slambrook, who is a clinician in Florida and a member of the STC community. We are talking about how she’s accomplishing good in the world that is much bigger than private practice. She shares her journey, some lessons learned, the intention behind her website design, and how she narrowed down the niches she wanted to reach. Amy tells us about the supplemental service of email sessions that she offers her clients, along with the pros and cons of providing an unconventional counseling service. Our conversation also includes the wide range of counseling, coaching, and consulting services that are part of private practice, and how to separate those services. Join us!

The topic for today’s show is one I have thought a lot about. It’s about having a bigger vision for your practice and building a business that isn’t just for income, but for doing MORE in the world. We sometimes refer to this idea as “social entrepreneurship,” which is about using your business profits to do more social good in the world. If you know me, then you know that I am on board with this concept!

My guest is Amaan Nathoo, from bonjoro.com, and we’re discussing “purpose over passion,” and why following your passion may NOT be the best advice. We’ll discuss what “purpose” is and talk about practical tips for prioritizing your purpose over your passion. Join us!

Welcome to a new year and a new season of STC! I was thankful to have a couple of weeks in India over the break, seeing many family members that I haven’t seen in a while. Now we are back and looking forward to what 2018 holds! My guest today is Ilona Naroditsky, LPC, of Spectrum of Solutions, which is located here in the Philly area. Ilona’s practice focuses on families and kids with developmental, emotional, and behavioral concerns. We are discussing how she found her niche, why she likes to be transparent about her fees, and more. Join us!
