Elizabeth Peterson has been a speech-language pathologist for over 23 years and has operated her full-time business in Denver for over 14. Since 2008, she has been teaching her business communication skills training to other speech therapists nationwide and has coached many of them into successful businesses.
Ever since high school I always wanted to have my own full-time private practice in speech pathology. When I moved from New York City to Denver, I intentionally took a job at a school district for the flexibility while I was building a company here. (Let’s be honest, I liked the time off too). During that time, I saw clients in the evening two times a week. I used the money to further build my practice and have travel money. (I went on a polar bear safari). After a couple of years, I took a risk and gave up one day at the district to see clients during the day. (I’m growing). A year after that, I gave up two days at the district. A year after that, I quit the district and was operating full time.
On a personal note, I must say how much I love working for myself. To work according to your own vision, and have the autonomy and independence, is wonderful. I actually exceeded my goal. I thought I would do private practice two or three days as week and have to hold onto the school district for security. I have been full time for over 7 years. When I resigned I felt more excited than scared. It was such a great feeling when late August rolled around and instead of reporting to the district, I continued to enjoy my summer.
Operating a business full time is hard work. It can be done. I absolutely love it and have no regrets. There really isn’t anything special about me other than being a risk taker. If I can do it, anyone can.
Deciding to develop a business can get overwhelming quick. That does not have to be the case. Together we will break down the key elements into manageable parts.
