"Average people see money through the eyes of emotion. Rich people think about money logically."

This is a quote from an article at Yahoo Finance.

Fear is an emotion which can cause you to think  illogically. This episode will give you some specific insight on business skills and whether you have what it takes to run a private practice or not.  If you already own a private practice, then you will learn some specific techniques on how to think about business and some tips on how to run your private practice well.

I "met" James on Twitter using the #bizpt hashtag. I checked out his website and was intrigued by his tools for private practice therapists there. I thought you might be interested too so I invited James to visit with me about what his service offers. is a patient relationship management solution for therapists designed to help you
strengthen your relationship with patients. In this episode, James shares with us how this tool can help your private practice reduce no shows using text messages and emails which are automated and configurable.

Hability gives you the power to create one or more communication plans for your patients, and Hability automatically follows-up with each patient during and after their course of care. Each message is completely configurable, ensuring scheduled messages reflect your voice and your clinic's brand.

Hability is not just for PT's.  Any private practice therapist would benefit from this service.
