If you’re like me, you’ve followed the tried and true path to a career in healthcare.  

You majored in a science, participated in a qualifying, practical experience, took your tests, got your license, and joined a hospital, corporation, institution or other organization as a healthcare professional. 

Congratulations! 

You followed the yellow brick road!  

The perfect path to a successful healthcare career.  

But over time, you began to get antsy. Maybe frustrated. Disillusioned.

You could see the drawbacks of working for someone else, having your good ideas bound up by red tape, living your life by a rigid schedule, getting limited vacation time despite all the overtime work, and eventually felt the frustration associated with the slow to change “system” we call healthcare.  

So you started to think about something else.  

MAYBE YOU THOUGHT ABOUT THE ASPECTS OF YOUR CAREER YOU WANT TO CONTROL, SUCH AS: 

  • Your work schedule. 
  • Your vacation time. 
  • Your creative ideas.
  • Your freedom and flexibility.
  • Decision-making.  

Or, maybe the little voice inside you revealed what you didn’t want to do anymore.  

Maybe you found a resistance to living your professional life confined by a boss, a strict schedule, or a system that stifled your creativity and ability to help others.  

Sometimes we’re not driven by what we want to do. We’re driven by what we're not willing to accept in our lives any longer.

Calling All Healthcare Professionals 

Yes -- Dietitian/nutritionists (RDs), speech language pathologists (SLPs), occupational therapists (OTs), family therapists, parenting experts, and other health and wellness professionals – that's you!  

What if you knew exactly how to make money in your own business?

ALREADY KNOW YOU WANT IN?

YES PLEASE!

 Whether you are currently working in a healthcare organization and exploring options for starting your own business, or have made the leap into entrepreneurship, you’ve probably recognized this: 

What made you successful as a healthcare provider, is not what will make you successful (or profitable) in business.  

To be successful in business requires different skills and a business mindset.  

It turns out even the pathway to a profitable healthcare business can be paved with red tape, challenges, and mistakes, too.  

But there’s nothing like knowing you own that road.  

Can You Be a Successful Healthcare Business Owner?  

Many prospective healthcare business owners worry about whether or not they’ll be successful.  

They fret about financial stability and success. They worry about referrals, their reputation, and whether they can grow their practice.  

In a nutshell: They fear failure.  

Yes, finances may be a big barrier, but it isn’t the only one.  

  • What if I invest in my business and I can’t get any clients?
  • What if there are other healthcare professionals doing the same thing?
  • How will I stand out?
  • I have a stable job, why would I take such a risk? 
  • What if I’m not smart enough, confident enough, young enough…  

You can be a successful business owner, but you have to have the right mindset and skill set.  

While fear and doubt will always be best friends, you can’t let them take over and run the business.  

Making the Right Decisions for Your Healthcare Business

One way new entrepreneurs handle the pressure to make money is by saying ‘yes’ to everything.  

Yes to “opportunities” that promise “exposure.” Or, they jump out of their professional “lane” because they think they can be more successful in another “professional” lane.  

It happens all the time.  

But saying ‘yes’ because you can do it doesn’t mean it’s the right thing for you or the business.  

Too many impulsive ‘yeses’ leads to a full plate of junk food and not enough healthy fare to sustain your motivation, creativity and bottom line.  

You’re Free to Create a Successful Healthcare Practice.  

One of the most important things to learn about being in business is that there is no “model” for a profitable healthcare practice.  

There’s no blueprint.  

There’s no yellow brick road.  

And, there’s no guarantee.  

And, yet, there is beauty in this: Flexibility, creativity, and an opportunity to be as profitable and successful as you desire.  

You are free to create a profitable healthcare business that reflects your talents and your dreams.  

Let me help you see the different ways your healthcare business can be a profitable one.
