5 Day Boost Your Private Practice Challenge

This is a 5 day course which takes about 2 hours a day to complete, but of course you can complete it sooner if you wish to do so. The course is available in full in our private Facebook group here and in part here on this website. The reason we can’t share the entire course here is because each days training contains an interactive video that was recorded live with our Facebook members and we don’t have permission to share.

Here is a brief overview of each day:
