123: The Gift of a Broken Business

If your wellness practice hasn’t broken yet, it’s going to.

In fact, you can predict with pretty good success when your business is going to break.

Better yet, you can prevent it.

Orrrr… if it’s too late for that, I’ll show you how to recognize the gift of a broken business & how to fix it in 4 proven steps.

hint, hint: it has to do with outdated systems + processes. 🙅‍♀️

Because, if you’re anything like most practitioners, you started your business on a shoestring budget, with a DIY spirit. 💪

Buuuut… it’s probably time for some upgrades.

How can you know?

Ask yourself this → If your business were to grow by 3 or 10 times (!) 🥳, could your current business systems keep up? 🧐

If your answer is “no”, your business is in danger. ⚠️

If your answer is ‘maybe’ or ‘I don’t know,’ ask yourself these questions:

  • Do I have an office policy document?
  • Do I have an automated system for following up with patients?
  • Am I still using paper charting?
  • Do I have an EMR I love?
  • Do I have an automated system for collecting & sending emails?
  • Do I have and use a CRM?

We’re breaking it all down (see what I did there 😂) in today’s episode, so grab your pen & paper 📝, get cozy ☕️, and hit play! ▶️

Let’s take your business from breaking to remaking in 4 simple steps.
