Resources for the Recently Licensed

This post contains affiliate links and I may earn a small commission, at no additional cost to you, when you make a purchase using my affiliate links. This post also contains referral links which provide both you and I with a discount or credit for services if you purchase using my specific link (again, no additional cost to you). I will clearly delineate affiliate links from referral links.


Hello Friend,

This is the moment you’ve been waiting for! You’ve finished school, passed enough Board exams to get your license and you’re ready to get to work. Now what?

Well, whether you’re planning on starting your own private practice or joining an existing group you’re absolutely going to need Malpractice Insurance. If you’d like to learn more about how I decided on the Malpractice Insurance provider I used, you can join an Ask Me Anything session or schedule a Mentorship Session.

You may also want to consider setting up a basic website where you can share a little about yourself and where people can find you to receive treatment. I use WordPress to manage my domain and host my website and have been happy with their products for years. If you sign up for a paid WordPress account using this link you and I will both receive a $25 account credit [referral link].

Once you have your website up and running, you are going to want to make sure you have the appropriate Terms of Service, Privacy Policy and Disclaimer documents in place to protect you and your website visitors from unnecessary trouble. I was thrilled with the ease and affordability of the Plug & Law Legal Bundle [affiliate link] which is a fill-in-the blank set of documents that are straight forward and easy to follow to create your ToS, Privacy Policy, and Disclaimer. Once you fill out your documents, you can upload them to your website and breathe a sigh of relief.

If you decide to start your own practice, you’ll want to have a few different ways to get paid (that *was* one of the points of going to school, right?) I’m happy to share my credit card processor comparison table, schedule a Mentorship Session for access. If you want to skip the research and use what I’m using, sign up for a Venmo Business account and for credit card processing, sign up with Square using this link and we’ll both get up to $1000 worth of transactions with no transaction fee (trust me, this is huge, EVERY fee matters when you’re a small business) [referral link].

You may also want to start thinking about your first (or maybe 50th) set of business cards & stationary to advertise that you are practicing this incredible medicine. I’ve been using for years and have been continually happy with their design options, product quality and speed of delivery (I even had a person tell me I was the only person they remembered from a conference years ago because I had a unique business card – it was the MiniCard size, a favorite of mine). Get 25% off your first order using this link [referral link].

Want to create accessible offerings via a Sliding Scale service? Healing Arts Collective is a great way to offer Sliding Scale services to folks (at no cost to the provider!) you can sign up here [referral link].

Interested in hearing more about what I use to run my practice? Join me for an Ask Me Anything session, offered monthly, for new grads & newly licensed folks. Check my Events & Offerings page for the next date & to register. Not able to make the AMA? Sign up for my newsletter for tips and tricks or schedule a Mentorship Session. Want to learn more about Mentorship Sessions before committing? Schedule a Complimentary 15-Minute Consultation and we can chat more.
