Magic Answers

So many people today are looking for magic answers. It’s sad but true; there aren’t any easy answers.

If I asked people what they wanted, most would say they want to be able to do what they want to do when they want to do it. They want money but they don’t want to spend time working. they want the freedom to enjoy life.

Unfortunately there are just no magic answers. To get what you want, takes work. I believe “jobs” are becoming a thing of the past. You will never be rich or free working for someone else. You can’t get there trading hours for dollars. There are only so many hours in the day.

I believe you have to think about and look for alternatives. Everyone must have an income so you have to start with a job….but that does NOT mean you have to stay there for life. Start with a job to pay your bills and get buy. On the side start a part time business and dedicate 10 or so hours a week to growing it little by little. It will take work and effort but it is worth it if you can learn to build something of your own and outgrow that job.

Take all the money you earn from the business and put half back into the business and save the other half, to build a nest egg. Once the business is making more than your job, it’s time to think about changing things up. Put more time into your business and cut back the hours on the job to part time. Do that at LEAST 6-12 months while growing your business further and saving lots more money so you have a nice nest egg built.

If you work this play for 3-5 years, you can eventually work your way out of the job and into independence. It won’t happen over night. It won’t happen unless you are dedicated to sticking with building a business and stay with it long enough to see it through.

I’ve been both places and I have found it can work if you are willing to start a plan and see it through. Today I no longer have a boss and I am able to do things I never thought I could I know if I did it, so can you. Keep the faith, and turn the future into a bright one. It’s not easy but it is worth it.

Relationship Marketing for Healthcare Professionals

Recent changes to US Healthcare Policy may threaten the stability and viability of independent healthcare practices of all disciplines. Increased paperwork, government mandates, and constantly changing regulations swamp individual providers, decreasing their available time to take care of patients.

The changes in healthcare policy have the potential to decrease access to healthcare, increase healthcare expenses, decrease consumer choice, and decrease consumer satisfaction. In addition, there’s a likely stumbling block for healthcare providers launching or running a healthcare practice. Most of them weren’t trained in business skills, including marketing.

If healthcare providers are unsuccessful at running and marketing their own practices, it may have devastating impact on consumer choice options, the economy, and even the health of our nation.

Written by a healthcare professional for healthcare professionals, Community Connections! is the first in a series of books designed to bridge the gap between what healthcare providers are taught in school and how to market a practice in the real world. Using this collection of easy and affordable marketing ideas, any independent healthcare provider can begin forging a strong and genuine connection with potential clients, regardless of previous marketing experience. Following the marketing advice in this concise book could help healthcare professionals build the practice – and life – of their dreams.
