When he and his wife decided to uncouple, it changed both Joe’s and his children’s lives in a big way.

To be the person I want to be? To be the business owner I want to be? My strongest meditation practice started then and it came from a place of need rather than a place of, 'I should be doing this.'"  What We Discuss in Episode 49:2:48   The pivotal moment that changed the direction of Joe’s life.9:40   Finding an internal locus of control and how it allows things to naturally unfold.12:22   Parenting as a single dad in the midst of a major life transition.18:46   Teaching nuance, healthy rewards and handling difficult emotions to children.24:59   Boosting creativity and productivity by adopting a 32 hour-or-less work week.29:09   Why slowing down is the first step to productivity.32:06   Showing children how to find their own purpose without pattern matching to their parents.**Full transcript can be found here: https://tinyurl.com/AoAEpisode49To reach out to us, join our newsletter or check out our featured episodes, visit artofaccomplishment.com/podcast.Follow us on Instagram at @artofaccomplishment to learn more about our guests and share your own experiences.

Joe Sanok: Raising Your Private Practice Rates to Get To the 4-Day Work Week | EP 09

Fearless Practice

As a therapist, you give so much of yourself to your work and your clients, so you need to ensure that you protect your time and your energy.  How can scheduling your weekends accordingly with some hard boundaries around work help you achieve that elusive work-life balance? What is a 4-day workweek and would you consider it? How can raising your rates help you free up more time?  Today I speak with Joe Sanok about raising your rates in your private practice, how to enjoy your weekends and why the 4-day workweek can help you reinvent your time, giving you more freedom, ideas, and happiness – while also helping the world.  MEET JOE SANOK Joe Sanok is the author of Thursday is the New Friday: How to work fewer hours, make more money, and spend time doing what you want. It examines how the four-day workweek boosts creativity and productivity. Joe has been featured on Forbes, GOOD Magazine, and the Smart Passive Income Podcast.

Connect with Joe: LinkedIn  Twitter Instagram Website Facebook IN THIS EPISODE: The importance of raising your rates and myths The internal inclinations and your rates  Being paralyzed by perfection Taking care of your weekends  The 4-day workweek The importance of raising your rates and myths Raising rates is something that many therapists struggle with. There are also many myths around raising your rates that should be dispelled so that you can feel confident in your Canadian private practice rates. Myth 1: Be similar to those in the community  False. People in your community that are therapists, counsellors, and mental health practitioners are not doing the same work and receiving the same education as you are. You are providing a service that is specific to you.  Myth 2: Inflation won’t affect you as much False. Your cost of business goes up every single year, and for you to stay in business you need to adjust your prices slightly each year to stay afloat financially.  The internal inclinations and your rates Curiosity: Top performers continue to maintain their curiosity.  An outsider perspective: Top performers often distance themselves from the situation and observe a situation differently to spot the nuances.  The ability to move on it: Top performers often value speed over accuracy and are not paralyzed by a fear of failure that stops them from trying something new.  You need to start observing the three inclinations through the lens of raising your rates and ask yourself: Why have you not raised your rates in the past?  How can you do this differently? Try it and give it a go. If it does not work, then you can always reduce it, but at least give it a try and adapt accordingly.  Connect with me:  Instagram Resources Mentioned and Useful Links:  Ep 08: SEO, blogging, and social media for your private practice with Brighter Vision’s Austin Kirkland  The Testing Psychologist Podcast Joe Sanok’s website Practice of the Practice website Sign up for my free e-course on How to Start an Online Canadian Private Practice Rate, review, and subscribe to this podcast on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Stitcher, Spotify, Amazon, and TuneIn.
