Q: What is the Group Practice Success program or GPS?
A: GPS is a 12 month long (ongoing month to month membership also available after 1 year) executive coaching and support program for established Therapy Group Practice Owners including, personalized 1:1 coaching, monthly group video calls, a 24/7 online list-serve, in addition to a 4-day intensive retreat in San Diego, CA in October. It’s the first program of its kind, developed to help Group Practice Owners in the field of mental health reach higher heights, gain support and knowledge from some of the best business owners around the country, and receive personalized coaching from the three successful leaders of Group Practice Success, Joe Bavonese, Ken Urie and Ernie Schmidt.
Q: What kind of results can I expect from GPS?
A: Of course this depends a lot on your follow through and effort, but in our experience with the GPS format you can EXPECT A LOT! We’ve seen growth of about 30-40% for most members with some as high as 200% in less than one year! This translates to $100,000-$200,000 more a year. Just this growth alone, easily covers the cost of the program. These numbers also don’t reflect the immense psychological gains and improved peace of mind that comes with belonging to such a solid and supportive group of therapists and business owners.
“Working with the coaches at GPS has been a phenomenal experience. I’ve been able to identify the areas where my group practice needs to grow, as well as the areas that it’s doing well in. I’ve made the changes, and the growth has been amazing. My group practice is healthier today than it’s ever been, and it’s continuing to strengthen daily. The monetary difference between last year and this year is pretty amazing also. If you’re on the fence about joining GPS, you’ll thank yourself for joining this time next year. I certainly have.” – GPS Participant
Q: Who runs this?
A: Joe Bavonese, Ken Urie, and Ernie Schmidt. They join every call together, provide personalized coaching, teach and share all that they know about Group Practice, and bond as a group over the spectacular 4 day weekend live event in San Diego, California as well as through the 24/7 online portal.

Q: How much access do I get to Joe, Ken and Ernie?
