Simplifying Systems to Get Your Money Working for You Coaching Session

Treasure trove of information!
Just starting out my private practice and this podcast is hugely valuable. I’ve learned so much that I’ve been able to implement already. Thank you!

I’ve been a guest on this show and listen to it as well. Few people in the space can blend the practical aspects of running a practice with good advice, and make it enjoyable! Linzy does that with her knowledge and interview skills.
It’s a great listen, no matter where you are in your practice journey.
