Dr. Vanessa Lapointe story of building her private therapy practice with 10 associates is a textbook example of how to build a business. She knew from the beginning that she did not have business and marketing skills and therefore hired a business coach to help her start off with a strong foundation with a clear message. From there, she started offering workshops to organizations and built strong relationships with other professionals in her community.
Dr. Lapointe offers 80 workshops a year and one of her therapists now works as a community manager maintaining relationships with referral sources. If you want to know how to build a business do exactly what she has done - have a "dogged determination" and genuinely build strong relationships with others.
