You're ready if....
YOU NEED TIME TO GSD!
Hi! We are Kate and Cyndi. Two counselors in Texas who felt different. Then, in 2018, we realized we BOTH were creative, passionate, business-minded counselors who wanted to grow outside the therapy room. We wanted to find time together to incubate our ideas and lift each other up. We met up in Houston for a weekend to co-work on copy, websites, and other creative projects. It also led to sharing, challenging each other, and some great brainstorming sessions. At the end of the weekend, we realized we were getting shit done (GSD) and started calling it the GSD weekend! Kate walked away with her hashtag #counselorsdontquit courtesy of Cyndi. Cyndi walked away with her hashtag #fearismylovelanguage courtesy of Kate. We would not be where we are with our businesses without the support and encouragement of each other AND other people in our tribe. We want to do the same for you!
GSD is a time to set away from the daily tasks, clients, employees, and other demands and get shit done. It's time to dig in and do deep work on those tasks or projects you have pending or ones you have been avoiding.
GSD brings people with common interests together to create a collaboration for connection, networking, decompressing, or creativity.
It's not ALL work though!
There is also time to play, relax, explore, refresh, and renew yourself.
You know your ideal client connects with you but marketing is a mystery.
Your big practice is getting bigger but you're lacking scalable systems, you struggle to find good people, and you are working ALL THE TIME.
Your passion for your niche runs deep because you connect to your client's struggle but when are you supposed to find time to pursue your dream project?
Working one-on-one in the therapy room is good.... but you know you have more to give and more impact to make!
Y'all have given me so much confidence to get to work on the dreams/goals I had for moving outside of the therapy office with my business and gave me a boost for my first presentation. Thanks for all you are doing!
