You can really see how your group practice is meeting the needs in your community, filling a gap by providing specialized services that just wouldn’t be there otherwise.
You’re making a bigger impact than you ever could on your own, and you feel proud thinking about the dozens of lives that are positively impacted by your team each week.
You get to enjoy the community you’ve built – mentoring other therapists or practitioners, having a team who share your vision and values, and generally just having colleagues so you’re not working on your own anymore.
You get to wear different hats – being a leader, mentor, and administrator, and not having to be a full-time therapist anymore. You get to use your different talents, and enjoy that variety. Plus, you don’t need to rely on seeing clients to get paid – you’ve built something bigger than a one-on-one business. You can see the fruits of your labor, and feel pride in all you’ve built.
And these ups and downs come often. The good moments or days are immediately followed by something bad happening. Your practice feels like an emotional and financial roller coaster, which is not at all what you were going for when you set out.
Rather than a roller coaster, you’re looking for more of a luxury train car – rolling steadily along the tracks, confidently heading to all the right places at the right pace. (And with a nice dining car with delicious drinks and snacks, obviously.)
✅ You want to feel a sense of safety and stability in your group practice, knowing that the money will be there.
✅ You want to feel proud of running a group that really reflects your values, takes care of your team members, and has a positive, lasting impact on your community.
✅ You want to feel less like you’re playing a game of whack-a-mole, moving from one crisis to the next, and more like you’re competently steering your group practice ship, weathering the natural ebbs and flows of business with ease.
✅ You want to be the empowered CEO of your group practice, with the confidence and paycheck to reflect the leadership and vision you bring to the table every day. This practice was born out of your brilliance and vision, and you want to enjoy it, rather than dipping in and out of owner’s remorse.
“This course is the highest of quality. I don’t know where I would have gotten this information otherwise, or how slow it would have been. I really appreciated both the level of practical information with the logistics, as well as the emotional support to deal with our mental blocks.
Now I am coming to my team with clarity, grounded with real information, real numbers. They are confident in the changes, and they also dream bigger.
If you resonate with the way Linzy presents the information about this course at a core level, you can trust it. It is healing and therapeutic; Linzy has spoken to my soul and spirit with genuine empathy and compassion. I’ll be able to carry this into my personal and professional goal-setting.”
When you started a group practice, you stepped into a higher level of business complexity than you had as a solo practitioner.
There are many moving parts that will make or break the financial health of your group practice. So often, the decisions you make on the fly while building your group are the key elements that end up determining how your practice finances work – or don’t.
Your group practice is like a machine, one that you’ve built – but you might not have realized how all the different parts worked when you were building it.
All the moving parts of group practice come together to shape the end results:
There are a lot of people who teach how to start or grow your group practice. But what I hear again and again is that even when group practice owners have learned how to start and grow their practice and have a team of therapists working for them, they still don’t really understand their numbers and how to make their group practices financially healthy and sustainable.
All of these things come together to create financial results, and if you’re like most group practice owners, you may not fully understand your machine yet, or how to fix it to make it give you the results you want.
✅ You can learn to understand the important numbers that make or break your group practice, so you can see yourself making grounded, strategic decisions on a daily basis that create financial stability and get money working for you in all the right places.
✅ You can be paid well for your work and leadership in your group practice, not just for the client-facing work you’re still doing.
✅ You can have calm-inducing buffers in all the right places (and in a few short months, too!) so you no longer need to worry about money being there when you need it.
teaches you the financial and CFO mindset skills to make all of this possible.
🎯 This course focuses on the financial nitty-gritty that other group practice building supports miss, teaching you how to deeply understand your group practice numbers so you can make great strategic decisions that will take the roller coaster feeling out of group practice ownership.
🎯 You will learn all the important numbers and systems that make or break your group practice machine, and get the information and support to make the key changes that will give you the financial results you want.
Lots of therapist-coaches are teaching Chief Executive Officer (CEO) skills, but those only take you so far.
Sure, it’s great to delegate your bookkeeping or have your admin track some KPIs, but if you don’t understand those numbers and how they work, then you can’t be the financial leader your group practice needs.
And if you’re not the financial leader, no one else is either. Your business is simply lacking this essential skill set altogether.
As your practice grows, you need next-level financial skills.
You need CFO skills – Chief Financial Officer skills – that allow you to set up the numbers and financial systems properly in your business, understand what your numbers are telling you, and take strategic action to keep your practice finances healthy.
So here’s a quick-ish who-am-I, while we’re on the topic.
Hi, my name is Linzy Bonham and I’m a therapist turned business and money coach. A friend once introduced me as “the perfect mix of spreadsheet and heart” and I take that as a big compliment.
As the daughter of an accountant, I inherited a good dose of bookkeeping-brain. I’m like half therapist, half bookkeeper. So when I went into private practice I dug right into all the ways to build a healthy business that pays for my life and always has extra money in the bank.
I also saw my super-skilled colleagues struggle with the money side of business. Some had even left private practice, or were avoiding starting one, because the money side was too stressful.
So I put my lucky combination of people and money skills together, and Money Nuts & Bolts was born. Eventually I closed my practice to focus on teaching finances to therapists full-time.
Through my foundational course Money Skills for Therapists I have supported more than 500 therapists over the last 5 years in going from money confusion and shame to calm and confidence.
Over time, I have been able to sit with dozens of group practice owners and their numbers, helping them understand the workings of the machines they’ve built and the possibilities their numbers hold, and guiding them in making the strategic moves to transform their group practice finances and their relationship with money.
I have also scaled my own business, gradually figuring out what it takes to financially thrive while leading and managing a team. I have learned first-hand what metrics to track for a business’ financial health, and what buffers to build.
I’ve also honed my skills that got me into this work in the first place – teaching finances in a way that’s accessible and creating beautiful, easy-to-use financial tools that can help non-mathy therapists really understand their numbers, often for the first time.
I know that group practice owners have the ability to create healthy and sustainable group practices, but so often that is not the case. Why? Because group practice owners aren’t being taught the knowledge and skills to really step into the CFO role and own the financial side of their practice. I’m here to change that.
No one else is teaching money to therapists like I am. Why? Because I’m me – a people-loving, feelings-loving AND spreadsheet-loving therapist-y nerd who can switch gears between depthful coaching, math, and technical support in the blink of an eye.
I get excited about the numbers and spreadsheets that make visible the inner workings of our businesses, and as my students start to integrate the skills I teach them, they get excited too.
My students tell me that they appreciate my ability to connect with them and their unique stories and needs, while also keeping them focused and making progress on the money-related tasks and learning that they’d often rather avoid forever more.
Now I’ve focused my nuanced and financially literate approach on group practice, and would love to have my financial and coaching skills completely change your relationship with your group practice finances, transforming you into the empowered CFO of your practice.
“Group practice finances are complicated. I spent years underpaying myself while struggling to understand my numbers. I was making decisions based on fear rather than data because I didn’t have a solid understanding of my group practice financial landscape.
Enter Linzy Bonham!
Simply put, Linzy is a magician. She has the rare talent of being able to explain numbers and spreadsheets in a way I can actually understand.
My work with Linzy has empowered me to take financial control of my 7-figure group practice! Most importantly, her systems will help you understand how much you can afford to pay your team well without sacrificing your own paycheck.
Honestly, this program is so thorough and comprehensive, it should be required coursework for any therapist growing a group practice business. If you’re ready to become an empowered CFO, join Money Skills for Group Practice Owners as soon as possible!”
