BACK AT IT! Season 4 Starts with Provider Power
I have missed you all as I’m certain you have missed me… crickets???… whatever!
Life has thrown me a few curve balls and some significant tragedy and that is why there has been a gap in episodes. Not to make excuses, but to share the experience for your potential benefit, here are the list of events:
- Office Manager experienced 2 tragedies in her immediate family in 1 month.
- Hired a New Associate
- Renovated and Expanded my CrossFit Gym
- Upgraded the Chiropractic Office Area
- Regained Access to Hacked Facebook Business Page Accounts (Awful Process!)
- Still Spending 10-12 hours/week coaching my son and his buddies in their final year of middle school football (sniffle, sniffle, tear, tear).
Some of you can relate, and some can’t even imagine. For those in the ladder group, get ready baby cause life’s a comin’! Regardless, character is shown in adversity and businesses are tested through tragedy. Knowing who you are and what you stand for helps you personally, while having great systems helps your business survive the onslaught.
I am happy to report that business is good and we are heading into 2022 with a lot of momentum. But how is that possible? Aside from all the things we discuss about building a patient-centered practice in previous episodes, we can answer that question in this episode with the following – PROVIDER POWER!
Provider power can be defined as the amount of work that needs to get done in a particular office visit divided by the time it takes to effectively do it. The quicker you effectively complete the task, the more powerful you are. The longer it takes to effectively do the job, the weaker and more diluted you are as a provider. We operated an office will a very solid provider power… thank God!!!
Much of this was inspired from a student who was shadowing me this past week. He is a great kid with a bright future, but was admittedly a little wet behind the ears when it came to business. So I asked him – “How long you gonna take with your patients?”
His response, “Oh, you know. Probably around… about… 30 to 40 minutes at the start. But then I’ll probably cut it back as I get busy.”
Enjoy the podcast to hear how I helped him through this lack in Provider Power.
Back at it People! Good Luck and #keepmoving,
