Hello there, and welcome back to the Mountain Practice Journeys podcast!
I’m your host, Cindy Norton.
Here in Episode 39 I chat with Jamey Schrier of Practice Freedom U about the 7 steps to a 7 figure business. Jamey shares a wealth of valuable information. Even if you don’t have the goal of a seven figure business, you can use these steps to avoid burnout and achieve that much needed work/life balance, however you define it. Even for those of us who may be working toward an $80 or $100K business, these steps are golden.
Let’s get started.

Episode 39 Transcript
Hello there, and welcome back to the Mountain Practice Journeys podcast! I’m your host, Cindy Norton. Here in Episode 39 I chat with Jamey Schrier from Practice Freedom U about the 7 steps to a 7 figure business. Jamey shares a wealth of valuable information. Even if you don’t have the goal of a seven figure business, you can use these steps to avoid burnout and achieve that much needed work/life balance, however you define it. Even for those of us who may be working toward an $80 or $100K business, these steps are golden.
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 38, I urge you to do that. In that episode I encourage collaboration over competition, while highlighting the importance of gratitude and abundance.
Now let’s get on to my interview with Jamey.
[Interview with Jamey Schrier of Practice Freedom U]
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 know your why when you set income goals. Don’t just set a goal of 10K months because that’s the new buzzword. Don’t just set a goal of 6 figures because it sounds nice and seems to be what everyone is talking about.
You can absolutely have a goal or intention of reaching these numbers in your business – and you can exceed them. But make sure that these goals are coming from inside of you and not from external buzzwords.
I know people who make millions and are super happy, and I know people who make millions and are truly miserable. The same goes for people who make $30K a year – I know some who are happy and some who are miserable.
It really isn’t about the specific dollar amount, it’s about whether the dollar amount is in congruence with your life and what you want.
So take some time to reflect about what you want for your life and business. Think about retirement, vacations, and even your dream home.
But think most about time, as it is your most valuable non-renewable resource. Time for yourself, time with your partner, time for your family and for your kids, and time spent with friends.
As I outlined in Episode 0, I’ll be alternating between a fun fact and ‘what I’m digging’ segment with each new episode.
What I’m digging for this episode is podcasting. I am one episode away from the end of season 4 and my first full year of the Mountain Practice Journeys podcast. If you’ve been with me from the beginning, we’ve journeyed throughout all four seasons together, and I truly appreciate you being here with me. I’m really excited for the second year of the podcast. I’ll continue to be here to support you in designing and refining the practice and business that works for you.
