Selling the Couch

By Melvin Varghese, PhD

With over 1 million downloads + listeners in over 130 countries, Selling the Couch is the #1 podcast for current and future mental health private practitioners who think differently. Psychologist Melvin Varghese interviews successful therapists in private practice about how they've built their businesses in and beyond the therapy room as well as top entrepreneurs, business/marketing, productivity, and social media experts. You'll learn how successful business owners get referrals, make money, work through fears, and how they've stopped "trading time for dollars" to diversify their income beyond the therapy room. Melvin also shares the lessons as he grows his impact and diversifies his income beyond the therapy room (podcasting, video, online courses, membership sites, group masterminds, investing, etc) and the tips, tools, and tech he uses to grow STC from a single-person business to the CEO of a 5-person 100% remote team. What you get are bite-sized and highly-actionable tips to guide your private practice and entrepreneurial journey.
