Welcome to the Profitable Practice Podcast!
This is Andrea Maxim, your oh so motivated host on the first episode of Profitable Practice Podcast.
I am really excited to be starting this podcast. For a few years now I have been trying to come up with ideas and programs and courses that can help you – the new or struggling practitioner – to be successful with your business.
I know personally, that I am in my car a lot and you know how boring the radio can get, so I tend to listen to podcasts myself. Whether it be health-related or business-related. But with my search, I did not find many, if any, podcasts that specifically speak to healthcare practitioners from an actual healthcare practitioner who is still in practice. In the trenches. Continuing to grow her business. So I thought, why not make a podcast to connect with you guys! This is my first episode, and like starting anything new, it may not be a home run, but bear with me guys… this show is going to blow your mind!
I want you to know that I am your biggest supporter! Over the past couple of years I have been hearing so many naturopaths and healthcare providers complaining about not having enough money. Their clinic is not doing well. They don’t know how to get more traffic in the door..
And let’s be honest, when we learn medicine, that is what stimulated our passion to do this in the first place. It was not about the money or starting a business. It was helping and treating our community. I am sure that you are kicking ass in that department, so let me take care of the business thinking and prepping so you need not worry. So enough is enough. We are going to change the conversation around the negativity around being a naturopathic doctor who is struggling to run a practice and turn you into a totally bad mama jamma healthpreneur. (and yes, I am bringing back ‘bad mamma jamma’). It is possible, and I am a perfect example of hard work meeting opportunity.
Often times I find people that are offering business advice are only focused on just that, offering business advice, without having been there themselves, or remaining as a clinician keeping up with the struggles as they pass.
That’s why the Profitable Practice Podcast was created!
Now this show is going to grow and evolve just like our businesses do. I want to help you grow you grow your business along side mine, without you making the same mistakes as I did. And I made a lot! Some very costly. Some a huge waste of time. I have put tons of money into my business and throughout the shows you will find out where – what was successful – what was not – and what my mindset was about making these investments.
But that’s just the thing isn’t it. A true entrepreneur is not afraid to take risks with their business. One of my favorite quotes comes from one of the youngest billionaires in the world, Mark Zuckerburg.
The biggest risk is not taking any risk… In a world that is changing really quickly, the only strategy that is guaranteed to fail is NOT taking risks.” -Mark ZuckerburgClick to tweet
This is kind of the platform of the podcast. Taking some calculated risks but mostly about how you need to start taking action. Most importantly I need to hear from you what your struggles are? What do you want to know more about? What do you want to hear me talk about? What is a topic that I should cover? Subscribe to the podcast. Share your trials with me on my facebook page, The Maxim Movement and leave reviews about the podcast.
The more you get to know me, the more you’ll realize that I am a pretty down to earth gal. I’m a kind of tell it like it is, no BS, and I’m not going to hide anything from you. Since starting my private practice in 2011, it has just been me – no reception, no marketing team, no business coach. Just me. Every move I speak about. Every thing you see me do. Has been me – learning how to do it all, on the best budget, with my own time.
For those of you listening, I want to be very clear. The Profitable Practice Podcast is going to speak to those who are just like me. Doing it alone. Willing to take risks. And Willing to take Action. If you are always coming up with excuses why you shouldn’t move forward, then this is not the show for you. I love my action takers. I love the people that come to me and say, I want to surround myself with the BEST so that I can be the best. I love the people that say, “I will find a way”. If this is you, then you’ve come to the right place!
So for today, let me give you…
Thanks for listening today to the Profitable Practice Podcast! I hope I have provided some useful information and tips to get you started. Please subscribe to this podcast as I will have some amazing episodes coming up soon!
