What is this summit all about?

Dear fellow therapist/entrepreneurs,  

If you're like me, you don't want to just be the therapist who sits in the office all day seeing clients. You long to create new services and products for your therapy business, such as expanding your group practice, conduct unique therapy/process groups, write a book, create a series of course videos for your target audience, get hired to paid speaking gigs, among other things. No matter the goal for your business, you are open to new possibilites that create multiple streams of passive income. Be honest with yourself--you are not the typical psychotherpist! You desire to think BIGGER for your career, your business and for yourself! 

But there are a few problems that may get in your way or that you are already experiencing as an entrepreneur. And that is, you don't know how to accomplish your goals, or you feel overwhelmed, stuck, frustrated, and or, you're just fearful that you may create something amazing that you will not know how to handle the success. Well....YOU ARE NOT ALONE! 

I'm inviting you to a two-day event called the "Not The Typical Psychotherapist" summit. This summit is a gathering of some of the leading solo and group practice entrepreneurs and marketers who are making significant impact in the psychotherapy world! I have assembled presenters who are innovative, forward-thinking and very creative. They coach and consult other therapists in developing therapy practices that compete with the saturated market....and THRIVE! The best part about this summit is that you'll also get the opportunity to connect and network with like-minded therapists/entrepreneurs from all over the United States!  

By the end of this summit, you will know how to differentiate your service offering to attract the attention of high-quality clients. You will know how to maximize your referral rates and conversion rates so you can maximize your sales. And you'll have skills to boost your retention rates so you can double your profits. 

As an added bonus, you'll learn social media and video marketing strategies, high vibration money mind-set, money management and best business practices that will help you develop impactful, revenue generating solo and group therapy practices---you will also learn the skills to position yourself to form creative streams of passive income. 

This event will inspire you and spark your creativity and imagination! Please come and join the fun!  

Sincerely, Ernesto
