Make Your Business Finances Make Sense

Share This Post

Do you feel overwhelmed or confused when you think about money and private practice?

  • Do you have a private practice, or are you planning to start one soon?

  • Do you experience anxiety and worry when you consider your business finances?

  • How confident are you that you are saving enough for taxes?

  • How much do you pay yourself and how often? Is it too much or not enough?

  • What do you really want to be possible in your life when you have a “successful” practice?

If you resonate with any of these questions, I want you to know that even if you are really struggling, nothing is wrong with you. You’re not an imposter and you can learn practical skills to gain confidence to manage your business finances. You deserve it!

Managing Your Finances With Profit First Can Help You Feel Less Anxiety And Stress

It’s possible to feel better. Imagine a business where you could…

  • Stop worrying all the time.

  • Shift into a more positive and hopeful outlook on life.

  • Improve your relationship with your money and how it can sign with your values

  • Stop letting anxiety affect the way you work or make any decisions for you.

A Financial System Is A Statement Of Values

Why should you care about profits or interest rates or any of that stuff? What do you want your money to do for you? Think about what you value and how you can use a well functioning financial system to help you achieve your goals and live your values.

Because I started using the profit first system in my business, I am now able to donate 20% of my profits to mutual aid, reciprocity, and conservation funds while also funding my retirement.

What do you value?

  • Providing free sessions to people who need it most

  • Regular travel to the Amazon to participate in indigenous healing practices

  • Becoming debt free as soon as possible

Once you develop a financial system, you can make space for what really matters in your life.

How It Works

You can rise above your challenges and start moving towards your ideal life with less stress and more calm.

You will learn the effective skills you need to move through paying yourself, saving for taxes and retirement, and living and working in alignment with your values.

I’m offering a three week class and discussion group where we will learn the basics of the profit first system and how it does and does not apply to therapists in solo private practice.

In each meeting I will present concepts from the profit first system and the specific ways you can make it work within your private practice. As a group we will discuss a relevant reading, how we can apply this to our business (or not), and ask questions to learn from each other.

Mondays at 5 pm Pacific Time

Meetings will be recorded

📆 Date



✔️ Core principle, first steps, bank accounts


✔️ Percentages and allocations


✔️ Procedures and troubleshooting

💰 Pay What You Can

I’m offering this because I want to spare you the confusion and overwhelm I felt for so many years before I figured out a system.

If you pay more than the suggested fee, you are helping to finance someone else to take the course for less than the suggested fee. Yay, helping others!

💸 Suggested fee: $110

You Can Make Sense of Your Business Finances


Hi, I’m Peter H Addy, PhD, LPC. I’ve had my own solo therapy practice for four years. I’d heard about Profit First for years from other entrepreneurs and therapists, but for a while the book just didn’t make sense to me.

After a year of study I figured out the basics of the system but thought it wasn’t relevant for me, a part time solo business owner (it totally was and I wish I had started years ago).

Finally, three years into having a business and having little to no understanding of what to do with my business money, I began a deep dive to teach myself about tax law, business structures, retirement options, and other topics that have nothing to do with therapy.

Let me teach you some of that stuff so you don’t have to suffer through it the way I did!
