This blog is about all matters business and personal of a sole practitioner. I have a practice with one member of staff.
Thankfully my practice is expanding at a steady rate without any marketing effort on my part.
One of the downsides of growth is that I am finding it difficult to keep up. There is a fair amount of work involved in the early stages of taking on a client. Not only this, there is also kissing a few frogs (clients) before deciding you are right for each other.
Further my staff good as she is needs support and training. This takes time. In addition, she lacks confidence in her own ability. It will come with time.
All this takes me away from normal day to day work. This includes checking the all-important billing. Implementing some great ideas I have about making the practice far more efficient. Most important of all, keeping up with routine client work.
Today I felt things were just getting too much. If I can be big headed, so many people and areas demanded my time.
Tomorrow another new potential client meeting followed by one more on Wednesday. This is great news.I am so grateful and feel so lucky. Having said this, a part of me says I need some time to myself to think. I wish I did not have these meetings. If I did not have them I would be worrying about growth.
My bike has turned out to be a disappointment. Brakes only on the front wheel and rear brakes are by pushing the pedals backwards! I cannot get used to it. It is a dangerous bike to ride. I will try and return it. I have enough to do!
Tomorrow I hope will be a great day.
