Small Practice Blog
This blog is intended to show the highs and lows I face day-to-day working as an ambitious and highly driven small practice owner.
My blogs will be both professional and personal. What happens in my personal life affects my professional life and vice versa.
Just covering one aspect and not the other means that I will not learn how to improve and change.
Weight loss is an ongoing issue for me. You will find my weight loss blog on http://firsttab.co.uk/
My key motivation for blogging is constant and never ending improvement. Writing helps me to do this.
I hope you find my blogs of some interest.

I can put down August 2015 as a month of big changes. M joined my practice as an employee and I decided to go for integrated software.
It was a stressful month full of downs that outweighed the positives.

After today’s post, I am out of the office. At last we have Digita in a state that we can effectively work from it. M and I worked till 8:30 this evening. We were determined to get it into a workable state. We have.
The comments on My Day blog by mrme and Glennzy made me think about succession planning for my practice.

Please allow me, once again, to go on about Digita implementation. We are so nearly there now. Post implementation. I will talk less about Digita.
In my previous life, many years ago, I worked in internal audit for some years and rose up to the rank of an audit manager. Here, like many other businesses, my time and skill were sold. Allocating time to admin was questioned.

TGIF! I am exhausted. I went catch up my sleep and just chill over the weekend. It was a tough week.
