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.

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.

As most readers will know block fees means far speedier expansion of a practice compared to organic growth. On the basis it is the right investment it would be recovered in a relatively short period of time.

Thank you for the response on the shop front blog posting.

Some readers raised the point about thinking about what types of client I intend to target and then looking at whether shop front would attract the targeted client types.

With all due respect your Majesty I know you will steal  the show from me tomorrow, so I am getting in early.

As I tuck into my heavily calorie ridden Christmas meal with smiles, one thing that I am sure will be on my mind is my survival in the practice world. I need to change.

I am a little disappointed with a gain this week. I am thinking what changed this week compared to previous two weeks losses? I need to do the same things to keep the weight loss going.

When a successful franchisor has shop fronts as part of its business model, there has to be something in this. Is this an area that is well worth exploring? As some readers may know I have sought views on this subject before on Any Answers.

Thank you so much readers of my blog. I am surprised that you read my blog. I am even more surprised that some readers go as far as taking the time to comment . It means a lot to me to get a different perspective or someone just saying it is okay.

Dear Santa

As some readers know I was a franchisee for less than a year. I signed up to a 5 year agreement. I did not see any benefits from them. Apart from using their name, logo and standardised very limited marketing material there was zero benefit.
