Know Your Numbers

Money & metrics without the anxiety.

Program now closed for 2022. Opening again 2023.

I want to be on the waitlist for 2023

We get it. You’re busy and probably haven’t had the time to sit down and look at your finances.

Or, it’s been a while since you really looked at the numbers over time and realized what’s changed. Maybe you know you’ve got some money coming in but don’t know where or how to make changes to optimise your practice. Or, you’re absolutely terrified to take a peek under the hood and see what’s broken.

All of this uncertainty can leave you feeling overwhelmed and anxious about the financial health of your practice.

If you’re ready to make better sense of your business metrics without feeling lost or overwhelmed, you’re in the right place.

Know Your Numbers is a 9-module course for allied health practitioners

To help you understand your money, chart your business performance, and track your metrics with ease.

Sort out your money mindset so you’re ready for financial growth.

Learn how to read and understand your financial statements.

Choose the best numbers to measure for you and your practice.

Create a 12-month financial plan to follow and track your way to success.

It helped me to improve my record keeping (to ensure we meet ATO obligations)

‘I now know how to measure my business success, calculate gross and net profit margins, cost of goods sold, and how to create and effectively use a budget. The opportunity to ask questions in the closed Facebook group was very reassuring that others are in exactly the same position. So if you need a little help with this aspect of your practice, I feel sure you will get value from this course.’

Because you’re not running a hobby, you’re running a business.

Know Your Numbers is right for you if you’ve ever told yourself…

  • You’re too busy to figure it out on your own.
  • You’re just not good with money and numbers.
  • You’re scared to dig in and see what you find out.
  • You should feel guilty about making money as a therapist.
  • You’re afraid to make changes in your business (like hiring, pricing, or wages)

Know Your Numbers gives you the practical financial knowledge and the tools and resources you need to be a savvy business owner.

As well as help coming to terms with the money mindset issues holding you back from running a healthy practice.

‘So many allied health practitioners go into business and either take a long time to wrap their heads around the financial side of their business or forgo understanding their numbers altogether.

We created Know Your Numbers with the knowledge that everyone has varying levels of comfort when it comes to numbers and money. Every module takes you step-by-step and builds on top of each other to instil you with the confidence that yes, you can take control of your business’s financial matters and it can be fun!’

Amy Geach, Founder and CEO of The Connection. B.App.Sc(OT), M.Clin.Sc, MBA

Our goal was to create a comprehensive program you could learn from and go back to at every stage of your business

Quite literally making the most of your
