Episode 23 Transcript
Hello there, and welcome back to Season 3 of the Mountain Practice Journeys podcast! I’m your host, Cindy Norton. Here in Episode 23 I’m going to chat with Patrick Casale about how to make time for vacation in your private practice.
Let’s get started.
Have you been wanting to start your private practice, but you can’t seem to take that first step? Maybe you’re afraid of failure or lack confidence, or maybe the idea of running your own practice is overwhelming. I’m Cindy Norton, owner of Mountain Practice Journeys and I help therapists and counselors to love the business side of private practice. I’ll share with you practical skills and advice along with a healthy dose of inspiration so that you can be on your way to the practice of your dreams. Put on your hiking boots, and let’s get going.
If you haven’t yet listened to Episode 22, I urge you to do that. In that episode I share some of my thoughts on how to have an effective phone consultation.
Now let’s get on to today’s episode.
[Interview with Patrick Casale]
During each episode I’ll be giving you one small take away, action step, or mindset shift. I call these acorns. Listen to episode 0 to get the scoop on what the acorns are all about.
The acorn from this episode is to take a vacation. Seriously! Did you think it would be something else? I want to drive home the point that we need a break from our practice.
I’m not going to say much more about this because we just had an entire episode about it, but I do want you to take some type of vacation. You can go to an exotic destination. You can take a week off and enjoy staying home and relaxing. You can do a staycation and visit local areas of interest. However you choose – just make sure you do it.
As I outlined in episode 0, I’ll be alternating between a fun fact and ‘what I’m digging’ segment with each new episode.
Right now I’m digging birds. I recently put up a bird feeder in my backyard and have had some beautiful birds come to visit, including cardinals and goldfinches. I’ve also experimented with moving and rearranging the bird feeder in several hilarious ways to discourage my other backyard friend “Squirrely Dan” from hanging on the feeder. The squirrel gets his name from a character on the show Letterkenny, which I also dig.
Thank you so much for joining me today on your private practice journey.
For episode 24 I’ll be talking about the importance of celebrating your successes – even the little ones. I’ll also be celebrating Mountain Practice Journeys 4th birthday, and I hope you’ll join in to celebrate with me.
