Session 35: Kim & Tim Heald Discuss ABA Clinics

In session 35, I get a chance to chat with some fellow residents of the Granite State, the husband and wife duo Kim and Tim Heald.

In this episode, we discuss the nitty gritty associated with starting an ABA Clinic. Having a clinic is an alluring idea. The obvious benefits include the promise of increased efficiency and quality control. That said, through this discussion, you'll learn there's a lot more to operating a clinic than finding the ideal location.

The Healds open up about the challenges of running a clinic, such as putting together an effective team, establishing a common organizational culture, coaching staff performance, and even working together as a married couple.



During this interview, Tim and Kim mentioned a few resources, and as promised, here are the links to them:

  1. The Lean Startup by Eric Reis
  2. William Abernathy's Pay for Performance compensation systems
