I don’t know how much these guys are charging for their services, but I am guessing that it is not nearly enough. Seriously. You are going to get arguably the leader nationally in practice building, Joe Bavonese, who is without question the top expert in online marketing for the mental health industry. You are going to get a practice owner in Ken Urie who is beyond masterful in creating and managing the systems and internal culture of a group practice in ways that allow for optimizing not only profitability but the sense of having an integrated, fully functioning business enterprise. And, you are going to get another practice owner, Ernie Schmidt, who brings not only the know-how for building and running a self-pay, group practice but also has an incredible energy and enthusiasm for the work that he does. I have known all three of these gentlemen for years now. So, if you are looking to take your current practice to new heights and achieve lifestyle balance in doing so, this is the program for you.
