You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave,
find your eternity in each moment.
~ Henry David Thoreau
Having a reasonable time-frame for when you formally launch your practice can help keep you motivated and on-track, and declaring it publicly helps keep you accountable.
In this section I want you to consider all the things that we have covered so far and take an inventory of what you still need to finish before you are able to start seeing clients with your systems in place. Remember things like forms, bank accounts, websites, office space, and bios for online directories, etc.
What pieces still need to be completed before you can see clients?
Once you have your list, consider how long it will take you to complete those tasks? Be reasonable, how long it will ACTUALLY take you to complete those tasks, not the “If I don’t go to work and ignore all my other responsibilities and don’t eat” timeframe – consider the rest of your life, other responsibilities, vacations, etc. when deciding how much time you need to be ready. After you have decided on how much time you need to be ready to launch, look at your calendar and pick a launch date!
Mark it on your calendar.
This will now start to become the date you are working towards to launch your new business!
Action Item: In the worksheets, determine what feels like a reasonable time for you to launch your practice. It doesn’t matter if it is two years from now, just pick a date. You can always change it later.
In the group, let us all know the date you have chosen to launch your private practice! The more people who know, the more people can support you in building your business.
