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.
