2: 5 Years And A Thriving Private Practice

Camille McDaniel shares how she's building a thriving private practice even though she started just a few years ago. Camille talks about the moment she knew that she had to make the leap into private practice, how she worked through the initial struggles, and the her advice for someone who’s just starting out.  In this episode, you’ll learn about a quote that inspires Camille on a daily basis, the moment where Camille decided that she was getting too comfortable and how it lead her to take the leap into private practice, how not doing her research beforehand let to this big mistake when starting out, how adding video on her website has impacted referrals, how adding a spiritual orientation on her website has impacted referrals, and the first step that Camille would take if she wanted to start a private practice and only had $500 and her laptop.

Just because you own a private practice, it doesn't mean you magically know how to run a successful, sustainable solo or group practice.

Profile picture for Melvin Varghese, PhD

Melvin Varghese, PhD

Hi. I'm Melvin. I'm a Vanderbilt-trained psychologist, entrepreneur, and online creator living in Philadelphia, PA.

In 2014, I began to think about how to use the therapy skills we learn in grad school, and in our clinical work into different realms (e.g., podcasting, consulting, online course creation, etc).

This allows us to serve others on larger scales while diversifying our income beyond 1 to 1 work.

I make podcasts and videos about business, tech, productivity, and lessons I'm learning from becoming the CEO of a lean, mean 5 person 100% remote team (we're not really mean..it just rhymed =P).
