One of my mentors, and one of the best marketers and writers in the world, Dan Kennedy, has long maintained, “There’s Riches in Niches!” This is true in virtually any business you can think of.
Sure, specialized knowledge was one of the key ingredients Napoleon Hill identified in his key work, “Think and Grow Rich”. His advice is just as sound now as it was one hundred plus years ago.

Your private practice is no exception; a specialty practice vastly differentiates itself from others’!
You’ll need a blueprint for design, and a very solid business model to situate yourself for success in private practice.
There are exceptions, especially if you still have powerful AND profitable revenue from referral streams. If that is the case, read on and you’ll still likely find that adding a specialty practice center or two may very well serve as a powerful level of career protection!

This crucial step is the one commonly neglected by those who underperform—or downright fail—in private practice.
Don’t let this be you!
