Avoid costly mistakes!

Whether it's your first time hiring and you're grappling with the multitude of decisions, or you're a group practice owner with a team of clinicians, feeling that things aren't quite right – we get it.

If you find yourself overwhelmed, struggling to make ends meet, and your clinicians making more than you while still asking for more money, you're not alone. Let's turn things around together.

Making hiring mistakes can take a toll—both financially and personally. When you find yourself working tirelessly to subsidize your team's efforts, it not only impacts your business but takes a toll on your personal life and family. Running a business is challenging on its own; avoid unnecessary difficulties.

Some practice owners believe that adding more clinicians will improve things. But, if each new hire is costing you money, expanding the team only exacerbates the problem.

We want you to set up your group practice in a way that is sustainable long-term. Every session should be profitable, for every clinician. Join the course to learn from our years of experience!

Avoid costly mistakes!

Our team sees this scenario so often: A practice owner comes to us because they are barely making any money, even though they are working around the clock. We dig into their financials, just to realize that they are paying their team WAY too much. It comes from a place of kindness: the owner wants to treat their team well, and wants them to feel valued. But the owner is working harder than ever to subsidize the work their clinicians are doing.

Sometimes they think: If I can just add one more clinician, things will get better. When you're losing money on each new hire, another clinician just makes the problem even worse. 

We want you to set up your group practice in a way that is sustainable long-term. Every session should be profitable, for every clinician. Join the course to learn from our years of experience!

Frequently Asked Questions:


Q: Can't I just get this information from my accountant?

A: Your accountant can tell you how to pay your team member (or set up payroll), but what most accountants can't tell you is "how much". Our team has worked with hundreds of private practice owners, so we've seen what works and what doesn't. We'll help you avoid costly mistakes!


Q: I already have a group practice, can I still benefit from the course?

A: Absolutely! The best time to tackle clinician compensation is at the time of your first hire, the next best time is right now. Even if you have a few clinicians on your team, you can still increase your knowledge to make data-driven decisions.


Q: The course is expensive, can't I just figure this out on my own?

A: We've jam-packed the course with all the knowledge we have about hiring in private practice. Short of working directly with our team at GreenOak Accounting, this is the next best option. A single hiring mistake can cost you tens of thousands of dollars, so the course is well worth the investment.


Q: How long will I have access to the course?

A: You have lifetime access to the course materials.


Q: Is there ongoing support after the course?

A: This course is DIY, so you can take the lessons at your pace and refer back to them often. There is no 1-on-1 support provided in the course.


Q: Will the course address regional variations in compensation and legal considerations?

A: The course is intended for US-based private practice owners. While we don't cover EVERY local and regional consideration, we provide general principles that apply to most practice owners.
