Ok folks… we’re finally going to break down one of the most asked questions… Should I have an offline or online dispensary?

This is actually an episode I should have done WAY sooner than now. In fact, I have an entire video on managing a dispensary in the MAXIMize Your Clinic course.

So, to make it official, I brought on Debra Wolf, a representative from Fullscript, which is an online dispensary option, and we’re going to have a healthy debate on:

1) The benefits of a dispensary
2) The pros and cons of an in-office dispensary
3) The pros and cons of an online dispensary
4) Is it possible to do both?

On this episode we’re going to talk about discounting, promotions, and why you should NEVER do that.

Never give up money, if you don’t have to.

Discounting our rates in order to make a sale….I just don’t abide by that practice. I tried very much not to discount my consultation rate or to give away my time for free as much as I could, even as a new grad. I will discount my programs and supplements when I’m doing a flash sale, but that’s only 2-3 times per year and for 2 days only.

What I don’t like is when I hear about healthpreneurs give a seminar, for instance, and they promote $50 off the initial visit, just to entice people to book into their office.  This may give the wrong impression – that your actual visit price is not all that valuable.

What I would strongly encourage you to do, instead, is to find ways to increase the perceived value of the visit or program instead. This is why “bonuses” are so powerful at helping to drive the sale.

Currently, I have a facebook ad running about my Yearly Wellness Checkups and promoting in-office tests that I run, which make me different from an MD. I am getting new patients from this video every week and I’m spending pennies per engagement.  My initial price is still the same, but I’m including low cost lab tests, and new patients are loving it! I have easily 20X’d my return.

It is imperative that you always value your time and value the price of your product.

Let’s stop Shiny Object Syndrome!!

But first…. can you believe that we are at EPISODE 100!!

I have loved putting these podcasts together! I have loved the recording process and the creative process that comes with it. I’m loving that you guys are listening to this, that you’re getting momentum from the podcast episodes and I especially love that you’re connecting with me!

So I really need to take a massive moment and reach out to all of you and say, THANK YOU SO MUCH! And I hope that  you continue to listen, to continue to share these podcasts with your colleagues, your friends, and people that you know that would benefit from this too!

On this episode I want to put Shiny Object Syndrome under the microscope and cure you of this epidemic!

Shiny object syndrome is a disease of distraction, and it affects entrepreneurs specifically because of the qualities that make them unique. It’s called shiny object syndrome because it’s the entrepreneurial equivalent of a small child chasing after shiny objects. This needs to stop now.

You know exactly what I’m talking about too… You know, when those big launches are happening and the emails and ads are constantly in your face… you’re getting sucked into the advanced copy writing and suddenly thinking… “I need this product!” More often than not, you’re just buying into the well-thought-out marketing strategy, which is designed to hook you, but you do not NEED this product.

How many programs have you purchased that you have yet to go beyond Module 1, Video 1? Now you’ve just forked over $1000CAD or $10,000CAD if it’s a US product, and you’re hoping that the transaction will provide you the transformation. Rarely is this the case.

What I talk about with my Maximize Your Clinic Next Level Members is just this… STOP acting from a place of survival, and making emotional-driven or FOMO-based decisions, and start thinking about every investment as, “How will this product fit into my strategy this year, and how can I implement this material asap?”  If you can’t think of a logical answer for BOTH of these questions, then STEER CLEAR!

Ready to dig deeper? Listen now!

What You’ll Learn From This Episode:

  1. Identifying Emotionally Driven Decisions
  2. Acting on Your Needs vs Wants
  3. Staying in a Place of Service instead of Survival

On this episode, I would like to share with you an ongoing question that a lot of people have been asking. Whether they are in one of my programs or whether they are talking to me on of my free strategy calls that I offer, this tends to be one of the most common questions that people ask.

And the question is of course about battling overwhelm. Really what “overwhelm” comes down to is: Where should I be putting my time? and how can I be more strategic?  New grads, my students in the Maximize Your Clinic next level program or you listening right now. You’re probably asking this yourself… How can I improve focus and decrease overwhelm?

It IS overwhelming to check all the things that you need to prepare like: creating your website, doing blogs, and other stuff that I would like to call “glitter.” The things that make your business look “shinier,” but that work is not really impacting what you NEED to be doing to move the needle on your business.

For instance, if what you need right now in your business is to get new leads, then you shouldn’t be spending your time and effort on building your website. You should be spending you time crafting your free offers, doing social media posting and live video to promote those free offers and doing everything you can to get in front of potential clients. Yes, other things will fall to the wayside, but that’s all part of the art of business.

So if this is resonating with you at all, you’re going to want to listen to this episode!

The online industry is big and it’s getting saturated.

People are always promoting the BIG numbers, the BIG email list, the BIG flashy cars and lifestyles…. but often, when you peel back the curtain, the reality behind the business is not how it is portrayed online.

There’s a lot of ego with business. Never wanting to show failure. Never wanting to show weakness. Always wanting to paint this gorgeous/lavish picture of how “wonderful life is”.

I don’t find that attractive. I, like most people, look for the real… authentic… caring person to invest in. The person that doesn’t hide behind the BIG promises and fails to deliver. The person who sells without actually selling. The person who is upfront with the sale, instead of masking it (when you always know the real intention).

When I listen to people tell their stories or how their business is growing, or the struggles that they’ve had, I never listen at face value. As I continue to follow someone, I will pay attention to how the stories are being told, what are the gaps that they are NOT telling me, or what should I be reading between the lines here.

That’s why it is my pleasure to bring Brandon Lucero onto the show.

I met him at one of James Wedmore’s BBD Live events. I had not really heard of him before but I knew that because of the relationship he made with James, it really helped him scale his business quickly.  So, I walked up to him at our after-event cocktail party, and asked him about how that relationship came to be and how it changed his life and his business.

The conversation was so honest. No bragging. No distractions. No ego.

Since that day I have been watching Brandon grow as a business owner and last year, really blew up. I have been a student of his for almost two years and as a mentor he does not disappoint. I have never worked with a 7-figure entrepreneur who is still just as dedicated to each of his students and always mentoring us personally in his courses, as much as I have seen Brandon do this.

So I knew I had to have him on the show!

What You’ll Learn From This Episode:

  1. Brandon Lucero’s Business Growth Story
  2. Tips for Starting a Business
  3. Overcoming Fears to Launch your Business
  4. Entrepreneur mindset against Societal Norms
  5. Spiritual Side of Business Growth

Want to Streamline Your Business?

The biggest transformation that I found that my beta students of the Maximize Your Clinic: Next Level Program made when it came to simplifying and streamlining their business was THIS… what we’re talking about on today’s show.

When I work with my student or clients my #1 job is to reduce the chaos, to simplify things as quickly as possible and systematize things as best we possibly can.  That way we can stop wasting all of our brain power on things that we are repeating every day and either simplify the process or set it to automate.

In fact, the Maximize Your Clinic: Next Level Program is open for enrolment (for a limited time only)!  We did a complete BETA test of this starting in the middle of last October, and the results that those 10 BETA members achieved was amazing! The level of accountability that they received and the way that they showed up in their business massively changed over the course of the 3.5 months. Most were able to accomplish in 3 and 1/2 months was more than I think most of them were able to do all last year.

So I’m excited to announce that we are rolling another Beta group 2.0, so I’m looking for 10 more members can sign up before the doors close!

To make sure that you ZERO reasons to not be exponentially successful this year, let me break down the Next Level program for you and then we can schedule a call to see if it’s the right fit!  We do 2hr trainings ever other week, plus unlimited accountability in the FB community and open office hours every single week.  My favourite addition (something I didn’t even offer to my one-on-one coaching clients) is access to my Virtual Assistant (VA)!! He is going to do your e-mail sequences, your graphics, and your video editing and get a lot of that like crummy stuff, that takes up wwaaaayyyyy more time than it should, OFF your plate.

So if this interests you — drop me a DM!

5-Day Challenges, 5-Figure Challenges

5-Day Challenges, that is the main topic of today’s episode…. but first… This is the first episode of 2019 (woot woot), and I hope you guys are ready for what this year has in store!

Want to know what’s even more exciting…. we’re just around the corner from our 100th episode! Annndd trust me, I have some pretty amazing tricks up my sleeve! So stay tuned!!

You may or may not know this, but I have a Maximized Your Clinic self-study program that is available for anyone on my website, www.MaximizedBusiness.ca. I built it so it would be easy to complete, would give you all the materials that you need to get your business up and running and establish the systems and strategies that you need to build an amazing business.

I left out massive gaps in that program on purpose because I wanted the program to serve a foundational need. So at the end of last year I created a survey questionnaire, asking people: “If I were to put together a new, more advanced program, what would you want?”. I also asked, “How many calls do  you wanna have?”, “How often would you want to have office hours?”, and even, “How much would you PAY for this program?”

Ultimately, 10 of our colleagues helped me put through the very first Maximized Your Clinic Next Level: BETA Program and we’re just wrapping it up now.

Fear not! Lucky for you, I will be opening the doors to the next round of the next level program now.

Curious??

  • The biggest outcomes from the first round with the Beta members was:
  • Simplifying their business – stoping over complicating the process
  • Creating a streamline business where you know the exact pathway from possible lead –> hot lead –> new paying client/patient
  • Rinse and repeat launches/webinars/seminars to grow email lists and revenues

Here’s a great place to start…. On today’s show when we’re talking to our very special guest, Zach Spuckler, of the Heart, Soul and Hustle company. Zach is all things, 5-Day Challenges that will generate you at least 4-5 figures, and, full disclosure, I am a graduated member of his 5-Figure Challenge program and I loved it!

Not only did we talk about how to set up and run a 5-Figure Challenge, but I also wanted to talk to him about his decision to pick ONE program to focus on for all of 2019, and shut down all of his other, highly successful and highly profitable programs. I noticed a lot of 6-figure and 7-figure earners doing the same thing as Zach, stopping the chaos and really picking ONE focus to build their business and brand around.

I want you to think about too this year! What streamlining your business looks like. What is it that ONE thing that you know you if you went all-in, you would have tremendous amount of success?  How successful your business would be then? and hopefully how much easier it would be to run your business when you’re just focusing on that one thing?

Today was a very special show for me!

I’m bringing back Dr. Michelle Peris – “Dr. Mom, ND” – who was one of the first people that I interviewed when this podcast started (here’s her original show: www.maximizedbusiness.ca/63), and I definitely encourage you to go back, and listen to that episode.

Why I wanted to have Michelle back on the show, is that for the past year, she’s really been true to her brand, she’s been showing up for her brand daily and has caught everyone’s attention in doing so!

What Michelle is doing is she has really listened to her community and what they wanted. She made a commitment to grow that ONE thing that served her tribe best and it just so happens to also bring her joy and purpose.

She now has a massively thriving business, her associates are thriving, the women and patients in her office are thriving.  I’ve also seen a massive change in how she’s showing up with regards to her social media, and this is something that I want everybody to think about especially coming into the new year and to 2019.  It is smart and strategic idea for you to be using this whole year to focus on promoting ONE major aspect of your business and let that dictate your brand, let that be what you always talk about and let that be what you always promoting.

I think how she’s set up her business is just phenomenal, so she obviously needed to come onto the show so she can share it with you! Enjoy!

About Dr. Michelle Peris

 

Dr Michelle Peris is a Naturopathic Doctor and clinic director of The Poppy Clinic who serves women in Oakville and the surrounding areas who are so over feeling sick or staying home with a sick child (again).

Through teaching women of all ages and life stages how to listen to their bodies and tune into the wisdom inside, she helps them create a life that feels good to live, with energy and passion that had been long forgotten.
Her clinical focus is on women and children, hormone health, and digestion. She is the proud creator of Dr Mom ND, an online resource for health-conscious mamas and their natural babies. As a speaker and creator of the Rebel Tribe, she loves giving and facilitating talks about wellness, mindfulness, and living our best life. She’s also a contributor to several podcasts.

When she’s not working through health concerns with my patients, you’ll find her sipping bulletproof coffee, hanging out with my tribe which includes her super cool husband, playing with her two young kids, or staying up entirely too late with her husband and a few goofy pets.

We often spend a lot of time hustling, a lot of time putting a tone of content out, a lot of time blogging, making videos, and while we might not be getting the engagement numbers or the likes, or the comments or whatever else. You have no idea how far your message is spreading.

I follow a number of individuals online, and I don’t always comment on their things, but often what they are posting has a lasting impact on me. It will either motivate me for the day or will help me confirm some kind of life decision that I had been contemplating.  The thing is, they will never know because I didn’t like or comment. Your words can be more powerful than you think!

So for those of you who are hustling online, just keep putting it out there, keep doing you, keep putting out great information, allow people into your world, because you just don’t know how far your reach is going.  So, I brought on Dr. Elizabeth Cherevaty and she’s gonna talk about how she integrated an online program within her offline practice to not only improve their experience with her, but to leverage her time and rocket her revenues.

I have another amazing student of the MAXIMize Your Clinic program on the show today: Dr. Katie Rothwell, ND.

At the beginning of 2018 we were sharing our biggest takeaways from 2017 and he answer really stood out for me: “Just wanted to share a “win” from today! Found out I saw 220 new patients in 2017, which I am super happy with! Upwards and onwards for 2018 

So I had to have her on the show!

Dr. Katie is going to talk to us about how niching her practice in the past few years has really made an impact on her schedule, and of course, her bottom line.

And we’re also going to get real about Associateship versus Ownership.  Dr. Katie is going to share how she went from being an associate to owning the practice that she was an associate in.  So often we think that “The Grass is always Greener on the other side” or you can much more money as a clinic owner and that is not always the case. So we’re going to get into that today too!

Jenna is a student and personal coaching client of mine and she has just been crushing it since she started working with me.

This girl is the very definition of “being coachable”. Basically every time I said “Okay, this is what you gotta do..” she’ll just say “DONE”. No worries, No hesitation, just made it happen. Fearless.

This girl has got nothing but pure grit, and I knew I need to bring her on to the show, because she’s not even a licensed practitioner yet. She’s still a STUDENT and she’s just making it happen. If we want to make something happen in our business, Jenna is a perfect example on how to do that.

Alex Charfin changed my life…

Hello everyone! On the last episode, episode 87, we talked about the 5 High Performing Habits you need to implement into your business TODAY to take your business to the next level.  On that episode I seeded that one of the speakers at the Archangel Summit was Alex Charfin… an amazing amazing speaker. Just blunt. To the point. This is how it is, kinda guy… which is exactly who I resonate with.

I have been really stuck in my business for the past few months. Not feeling like I was accomplishing anything. Not feeling like I wanted to accomplish anything.
And in walks Alex Charfin.

He blew me away.

He unfolded what he calls the Entrepreneurial Personality Types, and everyone falls into ONE of these categories:

  1. Caretaker
  2. Communicator
  3. Coordinator
  4. Evolutionary Hunter

So on this episode I’m going to break down each of these personality types, so you can see what type you fall under, and expose how understanding my true nature… how I work.. how I think.. and everything that Alex Charfin talked to us about, literally woke me up, shook me to my core and provided me with the clarity I needed to take control back over my business and my life.

I literally changed the very next morning.

Hello everyone!

“What is it actually looks like to start your business?” This was the question I asked our guest, Michael Kohan, and he delivered nothing but blunt, no bull-shit, 100% honest answers about what a real business takes to grow.

It’s really important to understand the expectations of what starting and running a business is going to look like.

Starting a business is not a get rich quick endeavour.  You need to be comfortable with being in business for the long hall, because the first couple of years, you are not going to be achieving the results that you might be expecting to.

You are not going to be making six-plus figures in six months.

There are definitely people that have done it, but they are far and few between. For most of us, you really won’t see the fruits of your labour until 5-years in. That seems to be when the business starts to run itself, booking start to come in with less effort and your bank account starts to look a lot better.

So what we’re really get in depth on in this interview is “What level of expectation should you have for your business? What taking IMPERFECT action should look like? How we can we stop all of the comparisonitis and negative-self talk?”

Want to know the answers? Get listening to the interview below!

PODCAST SPONSOR:

You’re Invited to a FREE ONLINE Training –> www.MAXIMizedBusiness.ca/ProgramWebinar

Questions I Asked Michael:

  1. Why do you find it so difficult for people that are health-minded and health-centered to also be entrepreneurial at the same time?
  2. How do you stop listening to the negative talk from external and internal sources?
  3. What are some other big mental blocks that healthpreneurs need to overcome?
  4. How can we stop being so attached to perfectionism?
  5. How can we be more integral in our business and in our life?

What You’ll Learn From This Episode:

  1. How to overcome negativity from friends and family
  2. How to properly set your expectations for success
  3. Practicing gratitude and blessings
  4. Being comfortable taking imperfect action
  5. Overcome the fear of exposing yourself to a wide audience

Let’s Skyrocket Your Growth this Year

Hello Everyone! Thank you again so much for listening to another episode of the profitable practice podcast. This show is going to be very different to any that I’ve done before.

The coaching clients and my MAXIMize Your clinic course students get invited to a Half-Day Intensive (5hr day) with me every January and July.  We just did our last one about a week or so ago, and it was all about checking into where we were now that it’s halfway through the year and getting ourselves ready to crush it for the next 6 months.

When most of us get to the end of the Q2, usually we expected we would be somewhere different. We expected to have more done. More accomplished. Attracted more revenue. Learned more. Did more.  For many of us, we feel like a “failure” or “lazy” or “could have worked harder” but on this call I wanted to make sure that I helped you re-wire your mindset and re-frame how you look back at how far you’ve come, and ahead to what you can still achieve.

As you’re going through this training I really want you to get a pen and paper out, because I go through an exercise towards the end, that if you do it with us, you will achieve more success than you could imagine. Hope you enjoy!

PODCAST SPONSOR:

You’re Invited to a FREE ONLINE Training –> www.MAXIMizedBusiness.ca/ProgramWebinar

What You’ll Learn From This Episode:

  1. Changing your mindset about achieving your goals
  2. Help you realize how business really works throughout the year, it’s NOT LINEAR
  3. How to approach the next 6 months so you can hockey stick/skyrocket your growth
  4. Pen to Paper exercise: Create the Best Year Yet.

Hello everyone!! Welcome to another episode of the profitable practice podcast. I have a really fantastic show for you today! What we are doing today is we, meaning my guest and I, are going to walk you through a massive mindfulness exercise. This was something that I did one-on-one with our guest and it was instantly habit-changing and snapped me out of my negative head space so I could be more productive.

You most likely need to repeat this show a few times to get the biggest outcome from it.

I’ve been talking to so many practitioners lately, and they are just stuck in a rut.  They can’t seem to get out of their head and are being all-consumed by their negative thoughts.

Mostly we keep repeating and repeating the stories that we create for ourselves.  The stories with regards to our potential and our abilities, or lack there of, to achieve success. It really does take a lot of training, effort and mindfulness to stay on a positive track and understand that these are “just stories”. They in no way dictate what WILL happen in our future, but we sure love to bring the past into our present and it significantly slows us down.

Quite frankly, the negative thoughts will never go away, BUT my hope is, after listening to today’s show, that you’ll be able to snap out of that way of thinking fast and faster each time.

PODCAST SPONSOR:

You’re Invited to a FREE ONLINE Training –> www.MAXIMizedBusiness.ca/ProgramWebinar

Questions I Asked Fernanda:

  1. Where those negative thoughts really coming from in the brain?
  2. When we’re trying to re-wire our thinking, how do we get started?
  3. How do we create that mantra in our lives that helps us snap out of the negative thought patterns?

What You’ll Learn From This Episode:

  1. How to identify where the negative thoughts/stories are coming from
  2. How to step-by-step reverse engineer those thoughts
  3. How to create the mindfulness that will energize us and keep us moving forward
  4. How to calm the negative thoughts as they arise and continue to exercise positive thinking

Hello everyone!! Welcome to another episode of the profitable practice podcast. I brought on a repeat offender today it’s Christina Bjorndal as she is my go-to person when it comes to dealing with mental-emotional health issues with patients.

I think we all know that every new patient has some sort of emotional issue, regardless of how many physical complaints they list on their intake form. When you witness it, wanting to open those boxes can be really scary, and kind of daunting, especially if you’re more new into your practice… but going there is really what will solidify your therapeutic relationship.

Really, it is a fundamental piece of figuring out what that individual emotional item is for that particular patient. The superficial stuff, a lot of us can understand and we always want to create solutions for those first. But to make the treatment really stick, we also need to identify what the mental blockages are and what the emotional blockages are of that the person in front of us.

This doesn’t mean you need to become a counselor, but it does mean you at least need to help the person connect the dots and just allow for the therapeutic space to be available to just listen to the person.

Questions I Asked Dr. Chris:

  3. Why is it so important for us to do our own mental-emotional work ourselves?
  4. Do you ever discuss your own personal story with your patients?
  5. Why this is so important for all practitioners to implement into their businesses?

What You’ll Learn From This Episode:

  1. Guidance on how to manage your patients’ mental health
  2. Importance of addressing every patients’ mental health concerns and histories
  3. Why is it important for all practitioners to address their own mental health blockages too, to become a better practitioner

 

About Dr. Christina Bjorndal

 

While I was doing my undergraduate degree at UBC in the late 1980’s, I experienced a debilitating depression and anxiety which was very difficult to treat. I also had an eating disorder and was not coping with the stress I was under at that time. When I did, I was diagnosed with Bipolar disorder type 1. Since that time, I have lived in shame because of the label of bipolar disorder. I just wanted to be “normal”.

Given my health journey, I have a primary interest in treating mental health, however, in the last decade, I have expanded my expertise into balancing hormones for women when it comes to PMS, menopause, fertility and pregnancy – especially since becoming a mom myself.

Hello everyone!! Welcome to another episode of the profitable practice podcast. We are gonna get down in dirty with your numbers today peeps.  I do this every 6 months with my MAXIMize Your Clinic members. We have a half-day intensive call. It’s 5hours long.  And one of the biggest profound outcomes that people have is when we actually start playing around with their numbers to see exactly where their success can come from and what it takes to achieve those numbers.

The biggest issue that I’ve found with business owners, regardless of profession, is that they try to avoid on looking at their actual numbers in real time, on a consistent basis. Unfortunately without doing this, you will be unable to properly track how successful your businesses is running.

Your Clinic Needs a Facelift: Interview with Cheryl Janis – PPP: 081 https://www.maximizedbusiness.ca/your-clinic-needs-a-facelift-interview-with-cheryl-janis-ppp-081/ Fri, 08 Jun 2018 14:45:13 +0000 http://www.maximizedbusiness.ca/?p=1659 https://www.maximizedbusiness.ca/your-clinic-needs-a-facelift-interview-with-cheryl-janis-ppp-081/#respond https://www.maximizedbusiness.ca/your-clinic-needs-a-facelift-interview-with-cheryl-janis-ppp-081/feed/ 0 <p>Welcome to another episode of the Profitable Practice Podcast, and this show is something that is kind of a long time coming.

Welcome to another episode of the Profitable Practice Podcast, and this show is something that is kind of a long time coming. I had this guest on previously and literally as soon as the episode was over I said “You know what? Everything that you said made absolute sense, how can I start working with you and start making some changes into the way my clinic is looking.”

So, if you have listened to this episode it was my first episode with Cheryl Janis where you definitely want to go back and listen to that one. And so, we had this call it was all done virtually and she helped me completely redesign. I cannot tell you the difference the way it made me feel coming to work, the way that patients where everyone has been so calm and so happy, we had a ton of new people coming in, whether that’s because of the ambiance that the people are experiencing just by changing the paint color.

But it was just massive to everything, especially for me as a person living there, I was ready to pack up everything and just give up the place. And I just really needed an update, and I love how Janis just layed everything out.

Today, I’m interviewing a new guest and we’re gonna be talking about how people, and new patients, and new clients or prospective patients & clients are just not engaging with us as they used to. So back in the day, it was always like, “You know, I was referred to you as the doctor my Mom, or my Friend goes to see you” and there are no questions asked it was just sort of “I’m gonna book in with you, because I got your name from someone.”.  And now, people are doing a lot more investigation on their own when it comes to their health, and they’re also doing a lot more investigation on us. And, I can tell you from my own experience, I will have people that will come to me and they say “Yep, I’ve listened to all of your YouTube videos, I’ve looked at everything you’ve done online, and that’s why I decided to book this appointment” or “Yeah, I know you’re seeing my best friend, but I wanted to do a bit more research about you or other healthcare practitioners in the area before making a decision”.

I’ve even had people that interviewed me and they said: “Well, I’m gonna be seeing a few other people for 15-minute consultation before I choose which practitioner I’m gonna work with”. So, people are getting very very skeptical, they’re getting very weary and leary about who they’re spending their time with. So, I wanted to bring one Madeline Silva to talk about sort of the changes in the Healthcare Industry when it comes to creating more touch points with your prospective clients before they actually come into your office.

For today’s episode, I’ve brought on Dr. Ronald Hoffman. He is a medical doctor by trade but does a lot of integrative therapy in New York. Something that I thought was really great about this interview as we talked a lot about sort of starting up your business and figuring out your identity as a practitioner, not feeling the pressure to pigeonhole yourself into a particular niche or a particular brand of medicine, but more talking about how you can be a general practitioner to your patients and still be widely successful in your practice. It really comes down to the essence and how authentic you are as a practitioner, rather than defining a niche, or therapy, or brand. It’s about really standing for what you believe in as a practitioner and showing the world that. We also talk about how you can then go on to market yourself.

In my business, I firmly believe that niching and figuring out your path makes things a lot easier, but I run a very generalized practice. I focus a lot on digestion and hormones and weight loss, but I still do treat a lot of pregnant people and their kids. I work with a lot of chronic illnesses and autoimmune diseases, but I tout myself as someone who Maximizes their health, so we can maximize your digestion, maximize your hormones, maximize your weight loss, but more importantly, we’re maximizing your health. That was my way of branding my authentic self in a generalized practice. While you’re listening to this, please don’t feel you have to go down a single lane path. You can definitely divide your knowledge across the field, but you do have to figure out that one way to speak to your audience and how to get in front of those people.

Today I want to talk to you about some soul searching I’ve been doing over the past few weeks. It’s been prompted by my coach, James Wedmore. I went to his BBD live in Laguna Beach back in November and they had Jim Thornton come on stage. I hadn’t heard of Jim Thorton previously, but I later learned that he’s a really big NLP practitioner and coach to celebrities, CEO’s and business owners. What he said on stage really blew my mind so I decided to share them with you today.

The way Jim encourages people to take more responsibility for their lives and where they are in their business are very valid statements that need to be made. The number one thing that stood out to me were the stories. Almost every time we have created a negative thought or a negative belief, it’s always actually been a story that we’ve created or our interpretation of what happened. When something goes wrong or a client cancels a session or appointment it can be so easy to think that we, as practitioners or business owners, did something wrong, when that is rarely ever the case. So try this:

When a thought comes into your brain that is not going to serve you, or give you momentum to move forward or does not positively reinforce you in any way, stop thinking those thoughts.

As soon as I started doing that, I immediately started to get more shit done!

The other idea that really stood out to me is the idea of “be-ing.” You will never be that person that you want to be if you are not acting like that person. Most people follow the mantra of once I have the money, then I can start to do these things, then I will be happy. It’s that have, do, be mentality. However, we need to change that into BE, do have. I am now going to be that person. I’m not going to want to get up early, I’m just going to be that person, I’m going to get up early.

It’s all about taking radical responsibility for everything in your life.

I’m going in depth about both of these ideas because it’s so important to have a proper mindset, make the changes in your life that you want to, and becoming the person that you want to be. It’s not as scary or as daunting as you might think. I’m so excited to share all of these ideas with you and would love to hear what you think. Please leave a comment sharing your thoughts on all of this!

Today we are going to be getting down and dirty with that yucky word: money. We’re talking about student loans today. This can really be a tremendous detriment, mentally, when it comes to approaching your business the way that you should. It is my pleasure to bring Travis Hornsby on to the show today to talk all about student loans, proper planning, and financial budgeting. We will also be discussing the emotional side of having student loans when it comes to partnerships and wanting the kind of lifestyle you hope to live now that you’ve graduated from your healthcare school or college.

This is something that I definitely have been reading a lot about: my relationship with money. For a lot of us, it comes with a very negative, scary, mindset. There are times we don’t even want to look at our bank account or know how much is on our credit card statement. It can get to the point where you just want to put your head in the sand and not even acknowledge the issues that are coming because of your finances.

One of the things I promised myself is when it comes to money and making investments on me and my business, I always knew I had the drive to win big. I took out a $25,000 business loan when I graduated and I had $30,000 in OSAP (the Ontario Student loan plan), but I knew I was going to be able to pay it back at some point. It took me a good 3 years before I got that line of credit to go to 0. Then I found a new investment that I would use my line of credit to help subsidize and then I said I’ll bring it back to zero.

I can say that it hasn’t been until the past 2 years that I’ve been consistently in the black in my bank account. That was just because I had massive dreams and goals in my business that I knew I needed to make an upfront investment on. So it was buying a clinic, getting a car, buying expensive equipment, investing in my self-published book, in my online presence, business coaching, and even this podcast. But every single time, I knew I had the tenacity to pay it off so it was always a worthwhile investment.

Now I know that there are a lot of you that don’t feel that way. Many graduates feel strangled by the debt that they’ve accumulated. And then, of course, there are people that are in your life that are expecting you contribute in some way, shape or form, in regards to bills and expenses. It can be really stressful.

Today is going to be another show that’s just you and me. I want to talk to you about setting up your year for success. I’ve been getting a lot of questions via email, Instagram, Facebook, and even from my coaching clients. Traditionally I answer each one, but I’ve decided to just hop on here and answer them for everyone. It might mean some of the shows are a bit shorter, but that also means you get a quick nugget of info to take with you as you progress through your business. I think it’ll be a great addition to the show and I hope you can learn a little about what I’m teaching other people to do.

I hope you have been having a fantastic 2018 so far. I personally just finished doing my longest live training ever! I just did my half day intensive with my coaching clients in the Maximize Your Business Course. It was phenomenal! Everything went off without a hitch, we were able to stay on time, even while switching locations. There were a lot of little “aha!” moments that came with taking the time to schedule out your day. That’s what we’re going to talk about today.

I’m going to share with you how I plan out my schedule and make sure I stay on task, we’ll talk about what I really encourage people to think about when they’re planning out their year, and the importance of having a game plan in your practice. We’ll also be talking about how it’s impossible to do everything on your own.

This is the first episode of 2018 and before we jump in I just want to say thank you so much for listening to this podcast and for all of your support. I’ve been doing this for about a year now and the momentum is building thanks to you. So thank you again for your comments, encouragement, and for sharing this show. This is one of the things that I always wanted to do to give back to you guys to show you that you can be profitable and successful in this industry. I never planned a budget or a schedule for this podcast, I just did it. This show excites me, inspires me, and allows me to connect with you guys in a way that I didn’t think that was possible. So thank you again for following me on this journey.

Today I’ve invited Matt Gersper onto the show. He’ll be talking to us about beliefs, financial freedom, and living the life that we want to. I felt that it was important to talk about this today because I always hear people stressing about results and getting stuck in a place of survival, which is often caused by fear. People can feel that fear when you’re trying to push things onto your clients and I want you to work from a place of service instead. Service is when we care more about the outcome of our patients than we do the outcome for ourselves. It’s more important to have happy, satisfied clients with conversion rates and increased traffic.

Entrepreneurship is never easy, but I want to help you live the life that you want to live.

Questions I Asked Matt:

  1. You talk about people feeling a need to be significant, why do you think that is?
  2. What is a belief roadmap?
  3. How do you identify which beliefs don’t work for you and how do you get rid of them?
  4. What can someone do to block negativity coming from other people?
  5. How does someone find “financial fitness?”

What You’ll Learn From This Episode:

  • What it means to do something from a place of survival vs. a place of service.
  • How to practice reflection within your life.
  • Why people tend to blame external forces and situations.
  • The importance of having something you want to do, every day.
  • Matt’s top tips for building wealth.

Today we’re going to be talking about the differences between just graduating college and feeling pressure to open your own practice vs. giving yourself time and allowing life to lead you down to where you need to go when you’re ready.

I’ve brought on Margaret Romero, a nurse practitioner who is very much on board with functional and naturopathic medicine. Something that we touch on in the episode, which I think is a huge misconception in our industry, is that the successful practitioners are the ones who own the clinic space and have the associates. We think it paints this beautiful picture that if you own the space you’re collecting 100% of all the money and because you have associates, you have all this residual income coming into you. Quite honestly, I don’t think that’s the case, nor do I think you should open up a clinic right as soon as you graduate.

I’ve talked to so many people who have just graduated college and more often than not they have no idea who they want to attract, or what kind of branding they want to have, or what kind of naturopath they want to be because they haven’t had the opportunity to get their feet wet.

In my opinion, when one graduates college they should align themselves with naturopaths they aspire to be or who they can have as a mentor. It’s in this environment that new grads can learn the skills from those who are managing clinics. This makes it so much easier to figure out what kind of clinic to run, what kinds of patients to see, where to set up permanently, etc.

Questions I Asked Margaret:

  1. What are the steps someone should take when they are looking to start their practice when they may not have the funds to do so?
  2. What is your recommendation for funding a practice? Should someone get a business loan, a line of credit, use savings, etc.?
  3. How do you know when you’re ready to move on to a new role and then eventually open your own space?
  4. Can you talk about being a space owner vs being an associate and that mindset change?
  5. Do you find that the benefits of hiring people such as an IT person, someone to manage your podcast, etc. outweigh the costs?

What You’ll Learn From This Episode:

  • How Margaret got into the field that she’s in.
  • Margaret’s advice for recent graduates who have hopes to open their own practice.
  • Why she recommends having a side job while getting your business off the ground.
  • How Margaret went about building her team online.
  • Her best tips about self-care and how important it is.

In this episode, we’re focusing on making consistent action. I’ve brought on Becky Newhook who runs a marketing agency and she’s also Canadian! In the interview, we talk about the basics and how we can get people to take action. If you’re anything like me, you make these big plans, you figure out how you’re going to execute it, and you may even put it in your calendar, but there can still be this fear of implementation. That can happen for numerous reasons but it can be difficult to navigate which is why I wanted to bring on Becky. She’ll be talking to us today about how to get over that fear, how to make things feel a lot less scary than they have to be in order to just keep implementing.

You’ll hear this all the time from people: consistency is the key.

If there’s something you really want to do, you have to keep doing it and thank goodness there are plenty of tools out there to help you create and schedule thing even when you get busy. There’s no excuse to not keep making content, keep that list building growing, or draw new clients. If you’re struggling with getting things done, creating content, or just stepping up to the plate and doing something, this show is absolutely something you’re going to want to listen to.

Today we’re talking to Lauren Devill. The cool thing about today’s interview is we’re not focusing on one particular topic, instead, it’s basically a complete checklist of all of the amazing things that you can start to do to promote yourself, your business, and to get things jumpin’ and bumpin’. If you are listening to this around the time it’s being posted, the beginning of November, which for my Canadian listeners especially, this is the key time to be letting your patients know that they have 2 months to use up their benefits. I actually have one person, which I mention in the interview, who has promoted on Facebook, using Facebook ads, promoting that this is her client’s last chance to book now, and she’s already had a massive onslaught of bookings in her calendar. I can also tell you that my calendar is totally exploding right now too.

So get those emails out, let people know, and what I like to do around this time are a series of countdowns: an 8-week, a 6-week, and a 4-week, and then that last month it’s a weekly reminder to tell my patients to come in. We want to make sure Q4 finishes with a bang!

The Maximize Your Clinic Course is going to be opening for enrollment.

We have massive promos and discounts going on right now.

This will be the last time that we open enrollment for 2018!

Check out: maximizedbusiness.ca

Questions I Asked Lauren:

  1. How has your brother, who has had no medical experience, had such a big influence on you?
  2. What have you learned about writing articles that result in getting people into your office?
  3. Describe how you’ve committed to writing articles for so many years?
  4. Can you talk a bit about creating consistent content on social media?
  5. Do you have certain strategies for blog posts?
  6. What is it that you find about podcasting that has positively supported your business?

What You’ll Learn From This Episode:

  • How Lauren niched herself within the naturopath space.
  • What Lauren did to become the #1 naturopath in Tuscon, Arizona.
  • Why she feels that blocking her schedule has increased success in her business.
  • How she became an author and what that process was like for her.
  • What Lauren suggests for someone who is just starting to create content.

Today is a solo show, it’s just going to be you and me. I’d like to start doing more shows just the two of us as opposed to interviewing people all the time (although I’m always open to more interviews of course). So as things are inspiring me, or I’m learning new practices or techniques, I’ll bring them to light here on the podcast as tips and tricks for you to be thinking about in your own business.

Behind Discovering my True Tendency

In this episode, I’ll be delving into how a particular conversation with my husband really brought me a ton of stress in a way that I hadn’t expected. I’ll also be talking about what I did to figure out why I reacted that way and how learning a bit about myself has brought me more clarity in my life. Lastly, after all of this, I found that so much of what I learned through all of this applied to so many of my patients.

Over the past few months, my husband and I have been discussing the possibility of having a third child. Coming into this discussion, I found that it rocked me more than I thought that it ever would. I really needed to analyze what my thoughts were and what I wanted to do as well as weigh out what my husband was feeling about the topic. A few weeks into this ongoing discussion, I sort of realized something… I was being influenced by people all of the time. For so long I’ve based my life decisions on what other people want. This was the first time in my life that I did a tremendous amount of soul-searching.

So I took a ton of time to really look at what I was feeling during all of this. I asked myself, why am I so focused on making sure everyone else is okay when having a third child felt so conflicting to me? I called up my friend Susan and over the course of an hour (on a Facebook live stream), we had a conversation about mindfulness. We talked about things that I didn’t even think mattered to the current situation I was in. Leaving the conversation I felt a huge release and I felt this empowerment that I hadn’t felt before. I felt clear about why I was feeling the way I did about having a third child.

Identifying My True Tendencies

A few days later I felt like I was in a sort of a funk again so I decided to pick up The Four Tendencies by Gretchen Rubin (who also wrote The Happiness Project). So I sat there for 2 hours and devoured the book. It helped me discover my innate tendencies as to why and how I experience my life and it was an incredibly enlightening moment for me. In the episode, I go in depth about what tendency fits me and what I learned about myself and how I’ve been able to implement what I learned with my patients and coaching clients.

Using True Tendencies in Practice

Knowing your true tendencies as well as your clients and/or patients will allow you to grow your business and improve your work more than you would have ever known. Listen to the episode, let me know what you think, and

If you are looking for a coach, I would love to be that coach for you. I do give free sessions to sort of put you on the right track, and I also do paid one-on-one coaching. I offer three-month, six-month, and twelve-month plans. I would love to discuss which plan would work for you in terms of the levels of accountability and achievement that would best suit you. For me, having a twelve-month coach on standby and having the ability to check in each week for me has been a massive change for my business. If you’re not running your business the way you’d like to, let me help you achieve those inner and outer expectations you have for yourself so you can start killing it in your business.

Today we’re going to be talking about living a “laptop lifestyle.” Running an online business is just as much work as having a brick and mortar business. There are times where I feel incredibly overwhelmed when I think about all the things I have to do. I can be a good self-motivator, but I know there are ways that I can improve. You have to constantly be adapting.

Utilizing the internet for your business can feel like a hugely daunting task, but it’s so important. I’m in my 7th year of business and I can say that it doesn’t necessarily get easier, but you have to keep trying. This is why I wanted to bring on Jill Stanton. Jill and her husband are the owners of the “Screw You” empire. She tells it like it is. She’s comfortable with who she is and you can see that in her business.

My biggest takeaway from my interview with Jill is how she put together her program. She didn’t sell some crazy promises or anything like that, but she really breaks down how to get to the level in your business that you want to, with no B-S. A lot of people may sugarcoat their experiences or give some sort of cliches, but today we are going to be 100% transparent.

SPONSOR

This week the sponsor is my 7 Day Detox Program. It’s a complete done for you program that walks you through everything you need to do to create either an in-office or an online program, depending on where you are and what you do.

Today it’s just you and me.

For this particular show, we’re going to be talking about the realities of doing things online. I find that I always love when people break down everything for me… the steps they used, what tools they liked, etc. Today I’m going to be sharing all the details from my last launch, my first 5-Figure launch, with you. I’ll be breaking down everything that’s involved because when I coach people or people ask me about launching programs, I think the perception is that all you have to do is send out a few emails, people will sign on because they’ll love you, and then you’ll be making a ton of money.  It’s definitely NOT that simple.

Now, my launches, to date, have all been done with a webinar kicking off the launch with e-mail sequences before and after that essential LIVE webinar.

Pre-Pre Launch Phase

This is all the stuff that needs to be ready before you even think about sending people to your links to start opting in. This is about planning the pre-launch and launch dates, what your webinar topic is going to be about, what bonuses will you offer when you go into your live launch, when will you release said bonuses, etc.  So the basic elements that need to be ready are:

  • Webinar Slide Deck
  • Registration with a webinar provider (WebinarJam is what I use, and here’s my partner link)
  • Registration page (page to opt into your webinar)
  • Thank You page (to people who register, entice them to show up live)
  • Sales page
  • Thank You for Purchase page
  • Facebook Pixel installed on all pages

Pre-Launch Phase (2 Weeks)

This is all about getting people registered for that webinar.  The more people you get registered will dictate how successful you will become when it comes to sales of your program or service.

Do everything you can during this period to get people to your registration page.  The conversion rate from registration page to actually registering, is about 20-30% so be mindful of that number.  If it’s lower, look at where there might be a disconnect between the two pages, or your FB ads or social media posts to the registration page. This could be something as small as wording or images being used across all pages. It needs to be as similar across all pages as possible.

Traffic sources: Instagram, Facebook posts, E-mails to my list & FB Ads

To do for this phase:

  • 12-24 Instagram and social media images (created in canva)
  • Autoschedule each of these social media posts
  • 2-3 FB image ads
  • 2-3 FB Video ads
  • Copy for your FB ad
  • Update your FB page banner to drive traffic
  • Update your Instagram bio link
  • Emails x 4 to your list to get them onto your webinar

Launch Phase (1.5 weeks)

This phase kicks off with the LIVE webinar.

Once the webinar is over, it’s essential to have your email campaign ready to send out to registrants to continue to entice them to buy.  Each email is systematically written to take away all possible objections that people could have to NOT purchase your product/service.

  • 8 Emails – one per day following the live webinar, then 3 on the last day to remind people the cart is closing
  • Automate your emails so it ends on a Friday (at the latest)
  • Advanced Email Sequence: Email your current list and ONLY add in the emails from your list that opened or clicked on your email, to show interest.
  • 5-10 x Instagram and social media images to let everyone know your program is available.
  • Automate these posts to go out 1-2x per day Monday-Friday
  • Update your Facebook Banner
  • Update Your Instagram Bio

Post-Launch Survey and Debrief

This is when you get to ask all the people that didn’t buy or opt into your program/service WHY they didn’t buy or opt in.  This is THE most important piece of your debrief because it helps you understand, perhaps, where your selling technique wasn’t great, what other objections were that you didn’t think of, etc. It allows you into the mind frame of these people who you didn’t convert into paying customers to figure out how you can improve your next launch.

It also really helps with the post-launch blues. The thoughts that will be running through your head after the launch, usually negative thoughts, and put them to rest.

Things to review during the debrief period:

  • Registration numbers
  • Opt in numbers
  • Show up live numbers
  • Open rates on all emails
  • Views on your sales page
  • # of buyers
  • Expenses

A few weeks ago we talked about simplifying your practice with Luisa. We chatted about how you don’t have to invest a ton of money, or do a lot of things, or make things more complicated than they need to be, etc. But you do need to take action and there are some basic steps regarding what you have to do. Today I’m talking to a guest who will share how to free up your life. Instead of worrying about a life-business balance, we’re going to just be talking about a life balance. You should never allow your business to be all-consuming.

Of course, when you get your business going, I’m expecting you to hustle, work a little bit more, and create those systems for yourself. I’m hoping that if you’ve been listening to this podcast, I’ve given you a lot of ways to set up your practice right the first time. What we’re talking about today is how you can strategically run a business even when you’re not there. It’s about spending time where you want to. We’re not talking about programs, passive income, online streams, etc., we’re talking about how to create your practice in such a way that will allow you to live a better life so your business isn’t running your life.

  3. How do you coach someone to learn to delegate tasks to employees or added help to their business?
  4. What do you do to manage your social life, family life, and business life?
  5. Are all of these strategies applicable to someone who doesn’t have a big practice?

What You’ll Learn From this Episode:

  • The importance of catering to your life, over your client’s lives.
  • How to overcome the fear of taking time away from your business.
  • Things someone can do to minimize distractions.

Today I’m talking to Michelle Peris. In this episode, we’re talking woman to woman about being a female in an entrepreneurial role while still having children.  Becoming a mompreneur and balancing my business with family life was definitely something I had to wrap my mind around. The first couple of months were really difficult. Going from completely independent to having a child that is completely dependent on you is a huge, overwhelming struggle. It can be difficult to navigate bonding with your baby, while you constantly have your business and work things to think about. To balance my work, my sanity, and my life, I found different ways to relinquish control, and manage both parts of my life. You just have to survive it. You have to survive being a new mother for the first time. You’re going to have to give up certain things and it’s important to be okay with that. You have to realize that you’re not going to be able to do everything the way you planned it.

I’ve brought on Michelle Peris to have an open and honest conversation about what it’s like to own and run a successful business while also being a mother. I really encourage these types of conversations to start happening in our community, without shaming. Mothers shouldn’t judge or make one another feel bad about different parenting choices, even if they don’t agree with each other. It’s important to be a little less opinionated, and a little more open minded. Becoming a parent is entering a whole new world that feels scary and judgemental, but a lot of that comes from within. It’s important to take it easy on yourself. Understand what your limitations are. It will be okay regardless of how you decide to raise your family and run your practice.

 

Questions I Asked Michelle:

  1. How has your business grown from the beginning?
  2. Did you have to fight with the internal guilt of leaving your family and your son to go back to work after your maternity leave?
  3. Can you talk about what it’s like to go back to that entrepreneurial focus now that your children are going to school?
  4. What are some concerns you hear from other entrepreneurial moms?

What You’ll Learn From This Episode:

  • How she figured out how to grow her business as a new parent.
  • How Michelle found a balance of work and family with the help of her husband.
  • The importance of compartmentalizing your time as a mompreneur.
  • How Michelle feels about “mom guilt.”

Today I’m talking to Nicola Fadzean. I asked her to be on the show because I know we’re always hearing about how to identify the target audience that you want to be treated is and how to figure out what that ideal patient avatar looks like. The thing is we hear it time and time again, questions like, “what does your ideal patient look like?” “what do they do?” “what are their hobbies?” “How old are they?” etc. It’s incredibly important to know those things, but the part I find we’re struggling with as a community, especially as a recent grad, is not knowing who that ideal patient is. We don’t know if we want to focus on a certain group of people or one type of patient. Nicola went through this exact experience. She didn’t

Nicola went through this exact experience. She didn’t know who exactly she wanted to treat so she ran this generalized practice until one of her mentors told her there’s no one really working on Lyme disease so she should get into it. You’ll hear throughout the interview that it wasn’t necessarily her true passion to treat the Lyme community, but she found a way to niche her market and grow her practice. It’s a very interesting journey that she went to and I wanted to share that here on this podcast because I know so many of us feel we need to figure out exactly who we’re going to treat right away, but you just don’t know the path your business is going to on to get there. It’s about being open to the evolution of your business and letting things happen over time.

Today I wanted to bring on another person to specifically talk about copywriting on the show. This was so important to me because it really is the life blood of anything that you want to do in your business. If your goal is to write emails and engage with your audience and grow a bigger list or if you want to create a landing page with online or offline programs and you want to actually sell them you need to be able to communicate with your audience in such a way that gets them interested. Once you can do that, and you can start linking them to your sales page, shopping cart, etc. that’s when you start to get rid of a lot of those objections because you’ve written your products or services out in such a way that they would be crazy to not take you up on that offer if that offer is for them.

It’s time to start chipping away at that fear of writing that so many of us have. There’s no reason to feel confused, frustrated, or uninspired anymore. In this show, Ben Settle really breaks down the 5 steps you need to create good sales copy to get the results you want out of your business.

I’ve been getting a lot of questions about how to set up an online store and I always tell people that it’s not necessarily as easy as you might think it is. When I first started my online store I had two products to offer: a physical copy of my book and a digital version. It took a lot of time and work to learn how to get a merchant account, manage the store, upload photos, change prices, etc. but now there are a lot of new software that makes doing all of those things a lot easier. 

You really need to start thinking about not just the dollar value of something, how much it will cost to opt in, pay for a software monthly, hire someone to get something set up for you, etc., but the long term value. Investing in these things will save you time and money so instead of spending 5 months learning how to set up a website, you could hire someone and have it done within a few days for a small price and then being 5 months ahead. 

It’s time to finding things that will make your life easier, take away the stress of having to learn a new software from scratch, etc. You need to weigh your dollar value vs. your time. Is it really worth it to waste more time doing things when you could, for a small cost, get something up and going with the help of a software or another person you can hire? You need to start getting serious about how long you want to leave money on the table. 

Today Chloe and I are talking about having an online store, leveraging an online store, the value of having it, and using the store with as much emphasis as you would with your own business. If you don’t even have a store set up, you’re not going to be going very far on your way to make some extra money. 

Questions I Asked Chloe: 

  1. Why did you decide to leave your comfortable day job to start your online business?
  2. Why is having an online store such a valuable tool?
  3. Can you define ecommerce?
  4. Is it better to link your shop off of your website? Or should you keep people on your site?
  5. How does someone grow their online store?

What You’ll Learn From This Episode:

  • A basic run down of how to set up an online store.
  • What platform Chloe recommends for eccommerce.
  • Whether it’s better to learn the software to set up an online store, or if you should hire someone to quickly get it done for you.
  • The cost of creating an online store.

I don’t know about you but I have been inundated with people talking about Facebook Messenger bots and I have no clue what they’re talking about. I keep hearing it as like the next best thing to email marketing and we don’t have to do anything else but have Facebook messenger bots. People are making tons of money using them but I have no idea what they are.

Zach Spuckler is one of the people I follow, and he’s launching a 3-hour training session that I signed up for, just on the Facebook messenger bot. That’s why I decided that it’s really important to have someone on the show to talk to us about it. Not only is he going to talk about messaging bots and what that’s all about, but he’s also going to be talking about retargeting ads because retargeting ads are another type of trend in this space right now.

SPONSOR

This week’s sponsor is my 5-day lead magnet challenge. Go the website maximizedbusiness.ca/resources to see my programs. When you purchase the product, you’ll get every single email that I sent out when we were doing this challenge live. In every email, there is a list of every task of what you need to do to get your 5-day lead magnet created. Now, because you’re buying the whole 5 days in one package, you should be able to whip out a 5-day lead magnet in a couple of hours. That’s how simple I made it happen.

If you’re stuck and a little confused about creating a lead magnet, what the dialogue you should be using is, what the follow-up sequence should be, and how do you set up a campaign? Those questions will be answered in this challenge.

Go to: http://www.maximizedbusiness.ca/resources/

Questions I Asked Ben:

  1. Should you change your ads if they don’t quite land right?
  2. What are the ramifications of changing your ad?
  3. Can you talk about retargeting Facebook ads? Can you walk us through what they are and how you would go about creating them?
  4. What are Facebook Messenger bots and what are your thoughts about them?
  5. What are some things that someone can do today to get into the game space?

What You’ll Learn From This Episode:

  • What you can expect when you start using Facebook ads.
  • What the Facebook Pixel is, why it’s important, and what you can do with it.
  • What look alike audiences are and how they can benefit you.
  • How Ben uses Facebook objectives.
  • Where Ben suggests someone should start when looking into using Facebook Messenger bots.

Today’s episode is one of the coolest podcast interviews I’ve had in a while and the reason why is because it’s something that I never really thought mattered. This episode isn’t about who you are as a practitioner, what your offering, or the online tech stuff… it’s all about your treatment space which is something a lot of us don’t put much emphasis in. It’s important to remember that when somebody comes into your office, that’s where the initial attraction, treatment, and a theraputic relationship begins. During this episode, you’ll hear Cheryl unfold just how important having a therapeutic space is.

Cheryl Janis is the principal of Cheryl Janis Designs–a wellness design studio in the San Francisco Bay Area dedicated to helping purpose-driven doctors and wellness professionals achieve the very best healing environments possible. Unlike conventional interior designers, Cheryl uses an integrated holistic and evidence-based approach to design—evaluating the patient experience from the moment they walk through the door until the time they leave, and every step in between.

She is the author of The Color Cure: How to transform your healthcare office, clinic or treatment room into an oasis by choosing the perfect paint and The Waiting Room Cure: The purpose-driven healthcare practitioner’s guide to transforming waiting rooms into nurturing, highly-profitable, referral-generating dynamos.

Questions I Asked Cheryl:

  1. Why is it important for someone to focus on how their clinic looks?
  2. What would you suggest to someone who doesn’t have their own clinic to design yet?
  3. How does having a desk play into meeting with patients?
  4. What would you recommend when it comes to lighting in an office?
  5. How should someone set up a waiting area?

What You’ll Learn From This Episode:

  •  The results Cheryl has seen when her clients work with her to redesign their healing spaces.
  • What colors Cheryl suggests using in a treatment room and why.
  • The importance of the layout of your treatment area and office.
  • Ideas for how to decorate and arrange your healing space.
  • How to bring out your personality in your treatment room in waiting room.

Today I’m talking to Melvin Varghese who will be walking you through the steps of starting your podcast, how to build your audience, and how to use it to grow your business. The whole reason I started this podcast was to find ways to help you stop trading your dollars for patients in front of you because if they’re not there, you’re not making any money.

One thing that Melvin talks about is how important it is to have your hand in multiple cookie jars and trying to find more ways to leverage income in your business, opposed to just trading time for service and podcasting is one of the phenomenal ways to do that.

  3. How did you get into the technical side of the podcast?
  4. What was it like getting people to come onto your podcast and how did you ask people?

When I first started my practice I went with my mom to this Women in Networking Group meet up. We were networking with these ladies and I kind of caught the networking “bug.” I started looking for meetup groups and other networking groups in my area and I started showing up to them. I found doing this incredibly valuable, especially just starting out because I was trying to build a reputation around my business; however, at times it was extremely difficult to go to those networking events, especially as an introvert. It can be very exhausting, it’s not always the most exciting thing to do, and there were times when I felt inauthentic and forced to meet people, giving the same elevator speech over and over again.

For me, networking really did not jive with me, but I knew how valuable it is particularly when I see the referral network I’ve created with other practitioners in my area, and how much it has helped me grow. Introvert, extrovert, or otherwise, you do need to reach out of your clinic and start to get to know and build relationships with people outside of your office. This is probably the best tactic to get people to send you patients. There are so many instances where naturopaths have cultivated wonderful relationships with medical doctors, osteopaths, or other types of medical practitioners. These relationships often lead to those medical practitioners welcoming naturopathic doctors into their practices as associates to work right along side them. You can’t do that without networking and building relationships.

Like I mentioned earlier, from an introvert’s perspective, doing this can be a very scary thing. After many strategy calls and coaching calls, clients say networking just doesn’t feel like something they can do, but once they figure out the technique to doing it, and giving the networking purpose (as opposed to just showing up and hoping someone talks to you), can have a tremendous impact on how you grow your practice.

Today I’m talking to Serena Goldstein who was my very first coaching client. She has done such a tremendous job with her business. Everything that I’ve told her to do, she has done with a masterful focus and did it. She has really focused on the marketing side of her business and growing it through networking. She shares how to and how not to network, how to grow those relationships that you want, and how you can implement it into your practice.

Questions I Asked Serena:

  1. What is your “elevator speech” when people ask you why you’re an unlicensed practitioner?
  2. How did you start the networking process for your business?
  3. Can you describe your first few networking events and any tips you have for people who are new to networking?
  4. How long has it taken you to build those relationships with people you meet at networking events?
  5. What types of opportunities have come from networking and building relationships?

  • What it means to build a relationship.
  • How long it took Serena to build her network.

Copywriting… writing from this place that engages your audiences and talking to people that you want to come into your office… writing for those patients that you connect with on a different level… These are all hugely important when it comes to working with clients that you want to work with. This is why I’ve brought Michael Stanclift onto the show today. Michael has created a clinic that is thriving clinic, just by using his copywriting skills (and he’s been featured in the Huffington Post multiple times). This is something that I think everybody should listen to because this call has left me feeling like I am more than capable of writing blog posts and things of that sort to connect with the clients that I want to.

Today I’m talking to Mariah McCullough. When I met her, we were sitting in a workshop and she was talking about how she created a list of 0-6000 just by doing an online challenge. No bells and whistles, no frills, no gimmicks, no major tech stuff. She just put it out there and it manifested into something wonderful. She was doing this while being a mom and while working a full-time corporate job. She is now using that list to build some residual income. I know that a lot of us who are listening to this show are also trying to tap into the “build your tribe” space and while listening to Mariah I thought that she had a really unique way of doing it. She also did it from a very authentic,  a very real, and a very non-agenda-y (how am I going to make money? How am I going to make sales?) kind of place, which I feel a lot of us can get caught up in. “What if I don’t make any money on this? Is it worth it? What if I don’t get anybody to sign up? Is it worth my time?” And sometimes when we just do things organically and just because we love it, the abundance comes to us anyway.

SPONSOR

Today’s sponsor my Complete 5 Day Lead Magnet Challenge.  This is the complete recording of the challenge that I did a couple months back. You get all of the emails, all of the live calls, every live training video. From start to finish, I walk you through the step by step, steps that you need to take to create a highly a highly converting lead magnet. This is exactly on par with what we’re talking about today: the main way Mariah got all of those people to opt into her free challenge, was using a Facebook ad that converted at 30 cents per lead which were just targeted to North America.

Questions I Asked Mariah:

  1. How did sharing your story help you create bonds with people who found you on Facebook?
  2. How should someone try to let go of expectations they place on themselves?
  3. How has your challenge evolved now that you know your group so well?
  4. What are your goals for your list?
  5. What would you say to people who are hesitant to reach out to their audience?

What You’ll Learn From This Episode:

  • What one of Mariah’s main marketing strategies are.
  • How to appeal and reach the audience you want.
  • The benefits of creating a challenge to grow your reach.
  • Tips Mariah has to maintain a successful challenge.

I’m very excited to be talking to Dr. Trevor Cates today because I have been doing a lot of reflection the past few months about the realistic ideas are for a lot of people in this industry. So many of us are so impatient when it comes to building our business, paying off our debt, and getting patients into our office. If it doesn’t happen fast enough we tend to blame outward issues such as associations aren’t promoting us enough, people aren’t referring me enough, or my clinic owner isn’t putting out my information enough, etc. Rarely do I hear people bringing that inward to ask themselves, what am I doing to benefit from my practice?

After having my last talk with Lori Kennedy, that was something that really hit home for me. You may think the ideal for your business may be to hit 6 figures, or half a million dollars a year might feel successful for you, or maybe having a better net gross is more important to you, or only working 2 days a week, etc. Today we’re going to be talking about creating realistic expectations and potentially reducing what your desire is or ultimate goal for your business is, based on what you’re willing and not willing to give up in your life. Today, we’ll be discussing these things with Dr. Trevor Cates.

Dr. Trevor Cates is a nationally recognized naturopathic doctor.  She is also known, as “The Spa Dr.,” and was the first woman licensed as a naturopathic doctor in the state of California, appointed by former Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger to California’s Bureau of Naturopathic Medicine Advisory Council. She has worked with world-renown spas and sees patients in her private practice in Park City, Utah with a focus on graceful aging and glowing skin. She has been featured on The Doctors, Extra, First for Women, Mind Body Green and is the host of THE SPA DR. Podcast. Dr. Cates believes the key to healthy skin is inner and outer nourishment with non-toxic ingredients. Her new book Clean Skin from Within will be released in March 2017. Dr. Cates’ The Spa Dr. skin care and supplement lines are formulated with natural and organic ingredients designed to help you achieve the clean and natural path to confidence and beautiful skin.

Questions I Asked Trevor:

  1. How did you build and sustain your list?

Ben Blackmon is a Kentucky-based Facebook Ad Manager, husband, and father of 2 who is dedicated to helping people review their current marketing efforts, and guiding them to success they can follow to allow them to spend more time working on what they’d rather be doing.

This episode is one that is long overdue. This was something I knew I need to create a show about Facebook Ads. More people are starting to do Facebook Live videos as well as purchase ads, but one thing that is holding so many of us up is the simple question: how do we use Facebook Ads to our advantage? I’m now at the point where I know how to set everything up, what the expectations are in relation to letting the Facebook algorithms do their things.  In this episode, I’ll be sharing that information with you.

Today I’m talking to Ben Blackmon. He is a facebook ad manager and actually for my last 5 Day Lead Magnet Challenge, I used him as someone to help me run my Facebook Ads. When I launched the Maximized Your Clinic Course for the first time I outsourced the work to someone from Upwork. He ran the ads for the month of July and it cost about $700. Overall, my cost per lead was much high because I was adding in his hourly wages into the price of the Facebook Ads themselves. I wanted to learn how to utilize Facebook Ads myself, but I was having a lot of trouble understanding them, which is what led me to get in touch with Ben.

If you are really curious about Facebook Ads and you want to learn more about how to set it up, the right way to do it, what the exact ad spend should be, when you should start, and how long it takes to get traction.

The sponsor of this episode is my 7 Day Detox Program. I created this with you guys in mind, to give you a completely free program that allows you to set up an in-office and online program that you can set up and start selling to your patients. 

Questions I Asked Ben:

  1. When did the transition to using Facebook ads to gain customers, make sales, etc. really start?
  2. What is it about Facebook ads that draw people to use it opposed to Google ads per say?
  3. Is it possible for Facebook ads to be used for local business owners to attract local customers to my practice?
  4. If I’m trying to target my audience, how do I use Facebook to reach those people?
  5. How do I know who to target and what to look for?

What You’ll Learn From This Episode:

  • What Ben’s most successful funnel, that actually converts is.
  • How to make sure potential customers see your ad.
  • Ben’s suggestion to targeting the biggest audience using Facebook ads.
  • The tools Ben prefers to analyze and assess Facebook ads.

Today we’re going to discuss how to effectively use Instagram to grow your business. I’m using my Instagram for one purpose: to promote, inspire, and help you guys see what I’m doing and get first dibs at things. I wanted to be very strategic when I use social media so my message doesn’t get very muddied. I see a lot of other practitioners do this as well, whether it’s Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram. Depending on how you want to use those resources, if you’re trying to do it from a business perspective, you’re probably not doing it right if you’re not only using social media to talk to your patients, but you’re also showing family pictures, what you’re eating, and things like that.

If you want social media to drive business, you need to start using it more strategically. I’ve been dabbling with Instagram since January. I was hesitant to use it until I attended a webinar with Jasmine Star who has the course called Instagram 180Instagram can be quite difficult to navigate in regards to how to get people to follow you in the way that you want them to. If you are using Instagram and you’re trying to attract patients, really look at your profile and ask yourself if someone who does not know you or your business would understand what your message is. This is coming from that idea of being consistent and clear to have people follow you for the right reason. From a business perspective, the only reason we’re really using social media is to add to your list or to get people in your office.

I’m talking to Pratima today because she has generated over six figures in her business which is making quotes on paper. She hand does all of the material, screen presses it, and sends it out. Her business is very picture based so I wanted to pick her brain and ask her for her exact system: how she grew her business from 0 to six figures in 6 months. Today’s episode will tell you how much effort you should put into Instagram, and how concretely you need to stick to your message.

Lori Kennedy is a Toronto-based health & wellness business expert, online strategist and mother of 2 who works with health professionals who want to grow their purpose-driven businesses in the new online economy.

This episode is important and very relevant to us practitioners. Today I wanted to address a lot of the questions that I hear very frequently: what exactly is it that I need to do to run my business when it comes to breaching into the online space? It’s time to have a frank discussion about what your expectations are, what you’re capable of achieving, and then assessing if your goals are realistic for what you can actually accomplish.

Today I’m talking to Lori Kennedy, who is not only someone I aspire to, but she tells it exactly how it is. She’s in a lot of different mastermind groups and she knows where the future of healthcare is going, which fortunately or unfortunately is moving to the online space. Lori teaches health practitioners the simple steps that they can take in a very sequential order to be able to have more clients, have a bigger impact, and make more money.

This episode will open your eyes as to where you want to take your business if you want to grow and move forward. We’re going to talk about how to evaluate what you’re doing now, where you’d like it to be, and the amount of effort you have to put in to get there.

This show has been sponsored by my 5 Day Lead Magnet Challenge… which gives you the tools that instruct you exactly step by step, how to construct your lead magnet, put it out there, and start generating those leads in 5 days or less.

Questions I Asked Lori:

  1. Why is it so important to bring one’s website online?
  2. When did the shift to building your business online as well as offline happen?
  3. How do you help your clients learn to invest in running an online platform?
  4. What is copyrighting and how does someone maximize that skill?
  5. What was it like to transition to coaching completely online?

What You’ll Learn From This Episode:

  • How Lori guides people to let go of their fear of learning something new or putting time into it every day.
  • Common fears Lori sees in health practitioners.
  • Why she recommends exposing your struggles, viewpoints, and opinions on your social media.
  • What it means to have a linear language with the group you’re targeting.

So this year was a pretty amazing year. I learned A LOT. A lot about myself, a lot about what I want to achieve, a lot from running this awesome show – the Profitable Practice Podcast, and a lot about what I don’t want in my life.

This year was probably the most exciting year for my business than any other year before. This year I took some of the biggest leaps of my life and put myself out there in a way that I had not yet done. I really wanted to hit this year hard. I promised myself in January that I wasn’t going to put any more money into programs or equipment, and just run the business. Well, come March I blew that thought out of the water and hired not one, but three business coaches.

BEST INVESTMENT EVER.

Hiring a business coach, if you’ve listened to any episodes of the Profitable Practice Podcast, is something that almost every person I interviewed recommended. Hire someone who has success in the field that you want to be in. Hire someone who can show you exactly how to achieve your goals in a fraction of the time it would take for you to do it on your own. Hire someone who has made all of the mistakes already so you don’t have to.

Just saving you the time of thought and practice and trial and error is worth WAY more than the investment itself.

So this year, I wanted to really lead the pack and instead of engaging in conversations around best business practices and how difficult it can be to pay for all of the fees and expenses that come with running a business, I wanted to be a solution.

So for years I had been watching and collecting information on where we as a community need support and guidance and because of working with these coaches, it got me excited and working my fingers to the bone to create the MAXIMize Your Clinic Course.

I don’t know about you guys, but the summer this year, at least in my office, was the quietest I had ever experienced. I had days where literally only one patient was booked in and it was a $40 visit. This is a FAR cry from what I’m used to which is at least 8-10 patients per shift and at least $500 per shift. I would come home some night and just say to my husband, “I’m getting really worried”

Then of course the negative self talk starts – Am I a bad Naturopathic Doctor? Have I done something and now the rumors are spreading to not come and see me? Is there something that I’m doing wrong that is repelling patients?

Of course, I also knew that in this business everything ebbs and flows. I also know that the universe is always looking out for me. It always has.

Every time. Every time I thought about quitting, when I show up the office that day or check my email, almost within the hour a patient books in. That has been my sign that I am doing what I’m doing for a reason.

During the summer was when the clinic was slow, it allowed me the space to write the video scripts, to make the videos, to record podcasts, to create programs for my patients. It gave me the time to complete my bridges.

In case you haven’t read my article on Finishing Bridges, we as entrepreneurs are very very good at creative thinking. We think of a ton of wonderful ideas. Wonderful projects we want to start. But we don’t finish any of them. So we have all of these unfinished bridges and wonder why we feel so unaccomplished.

Once we complete a bridge we immediately feel like we’re getting somewhere. Like we’re taking command of our business. It lights a fuel under your file and changes your beliefs that anything you want to create is possible. That your potential at succeeding in practice is attainable.

Just think of how many bridges you currently have half completed in your practice…

This year I wanted to complete as many bridges as I could. I wanted to stop waiting for “the right time” and get something going.

So my biggest accomplishment this year was all about letting go of the worry, the negative self talk and being fearless with my business. I created programs, both online and in my practice and launched them before they were even completed. Before they were “perfect”. Knowing, that they’d never be perfect.

I invited people to speak their minds about what I was creating and how I was running things. Through survey’s and questioning and asking in-person how I could help make things better.

Doing that for the past 12-months has made me more grounded, more organized and much stronger for this year. I have my launches mapped out, so I know when they will happen. I feel like I have developed my structure to running my business so it’s more on auto-pilot.

And even despite the drop in patient visits over the summer, because I took these leaps of faith in myself and knew what I was creating and launching to the world came from a place of wanting to serve. Wanting to help. Not about ego or about the money or the revenue. I still achieved the same level of revenue as last year but netted over $10K more.

So to those who are listening to the Profitable Practice Podcast, really take a few minutes and think about the bridges that you need to complete. What’s holding you back? What is going to prevent you from making 2017 the best year yet in your business – because the only thing that is, is YOU.

I want to take a moment and thank someone who took the time to write to me:

“I just wanted to send you an e-mail to thank you for your podcast on ‘Entrepreneur’s Guilt’ (http://www.maximizedbusiness.ca/26). I am a year out of school, and am starting my own business. To be honest, I really love learning how to figure out how to run google ads and SEO (even though it’s occasionally frustrating of course… I’m not tech savvy like you 🙂 I was an employee for the last year and I learned that it’s not for me at all.

The past week or so I’ve been really struggling with the guilt and the fear. My schedule for Jan is very low, I can’t pay my own bills, and it’s made me think of getting a part time job at a clinic to pay the bills. I can feel it energetically pulling me from my business and I know it contributes to the barren schedule, and I need to think hard about if it’s really worth it. Your words and advice were so helpful to me to refocus, figure out where the guilt is really coming from, and take a breath.

Everyday that I’m living this entrepreneur life I am challenged. I am forced to look inside myself and examine my own personal roadblocks. I know I will be successful — it’s the lack of certainty that is making me scared! I really appreciate you and what you’re doing to help our profession. Thank you for the reminder to look forward and to trust that success is only a millimeter away.”

If you have any doubts or you don’t know where to start, I’m here! The MAXIMize Your Clinic Course is going to be opening in February and I’m creating more of a community around it more than we had last year. So that’s more support from me and the other members of the group.

I’m also launching a 5-Day Lead Magnet Challenge early-February! If you want to join, Click HERE (or on the image)

Today I’m joined by Dr. Christina Bjorndal! While she was working on her undergraduate degree at UBC, she experienced a debilitating depression and anxiety which was very difficult to treat. She also had an eating disorder and had a difficult time coping with stress at that time. Like most people, she hadn’t heard about naturopathic medicine, so she treated herself with medications that were unfortunately ineffective. After surviving a suicide attempt, she finally began the healing process after reading the book Returning to Love by Mariam Williamson. Up until this point, she was living with the shame and stigma of having a mental illness.

Since reading that book she has spent over 20 years learning to accept herself and her diagnosis with the help of many other practitioners and has found many other ways to treat her mental disease. After attending a mental health forum in 1999, she became a patient of Dr. Abraham Hoffner and experienced her first depression free year in 13 years. It was then that she decided to become a naturopathic doctor to help people heal from all diseases from addiction, to eating disorders, and OCD to name a few.

She has written a book called Beyond the Label: Moving from Mental Illness to Wellness with Naturopathic Medicine which will soon be available on Amazon!

Questions I Asked Christina:

  1.  Describe what it was like to set up your practice.
  2. Did you always know you wanted to focus on mental health issues?
  3. What struggles or benefits did you experience opening your practice in a small community?
  4. How pivotal was it for you to go above and beyond to learn about the area you want to specialize in?
  5. What are some other areas of your practice that you have found really add to your success in the industry?

What You’ll Learn From This Episode:

  • How Christina decided where she would open her practice.
  • What Christina believes the number one hurdle is for naturopaths when opening their practices.
  • The benefits Christina has found by focusing on one aspect of naturopathic work.
  • Why Christina believes in healing yourself as a practitioner before healing other patients.

Hello everyone.

Thank you again for tuning into another episode of the Profitable Practice Podcast. Today’s podcast episode is really important to me. As I join groups on Facebook, entrepreneurial groups, even our naturopathic groups, I find that at least once a month I see a woman post about GUILT #momguilt and work-life balance.

The struggles that I see with women in our profession between being a good mom and running a practice comes up so often that I knew I needed to address it. Now to the men out there listening… I am not trying to make this podcast one sided. I love that there are more dads out there who are stepping up and taking a huge role at raising their children while working full time. BUT, I can’t talk about this struggle from your stand point nearly as well as I can as a woman. So to those men who struggle with #dadguilt, I would LOVE to hear your take on this work-life balance topic.

So here’s the thing… Women make babies… women are supposed to raise said babies and take care of a home. That is our evolutionary role on this planet. It has really only been in the past decade that women are taking a dominant role in the work place.

The people that I see paving the way for entrepreneurship, more than often, are WOMEN. And that’s great, but what is the one thing that is always nagging at us, the one thing that we can be so easily judged on… are we exchanging success for being a good mom?

How many pictures on social media have you seen images of working women with a newborn infant on their lap or in a sling or on the breast getting HUGE media traction…because it shows us women, “We can do it all!” “It is possible to be a good mom and still work hard.”

To that I say, sure! It is possible… but you will sacrifice one to become great at the other.

So I’m going to take a moment and read you a passage from Shonda Rhimes (you know, the women who has taken over Thursday nights. The creator of Grey’s Anatomy, Private Practice and Scandal) commencement speech she gave to her alma mater university, Dartmouth, a few years ago.

What inspired me the most about this speech is how she clearly lays out a HUGE LIE that people have been feeding us… that is, Work-Life Balance.

“Shonda, how do you do it all?

Like I’m full of magical magic and special wisdom-ness or something.How do you do it all? And I usually just smile and say like, “I’m really organized.” Or if I’m feeling slightly kindly, I say, “I have a lot of help.” And those things are true. But they also are not true. And this is the thing that I really want to say. To all of you. Not just to the women out there. Although this will matter to you women a great deal as you enter the work force and try to figure out how to juggle work and family. But it will also matter to the men, who I think increasingly are also trying to figure out how to juggle work and family. And frankly, if you aren’t trying to figure it out, men of Dartmouth, you should be. Fatherhood is being redefined at a lightning-fast rate. You do not want to be a dinosaur.

So women and men of Dartmouth: As you try to figure out the impossible task of juggling work and family and you hear over and over and over again that you just need a lot of help or you just need to be organized or you just need to try just a little bit harder … as a very successful woman, a single mother of three, who constantly gets asked the question “How do you do it all?” For once I am going to answer that question with 100 percent honesty here for you now. Because it’s just us. Because it’s our fireside chat. Because somebody has to tell you the truth.

Shonda, how do you do it all?

The answer is this: I don’t.

Whenever you see me somewhere succeeding in one area of my life, that almost certainly means I am failing in another area of my life. If I am killing it on a Scandal script for work, I am probably missing bath and story time at home. If I am at home sewing my kid’s Halloween costumes, I’m probably blowing off a rewrite I was supposed to turn in. If I am accepting a prestigious award, I am missing my baby’s first swim lesson. If I am at my daughter’s debut in her school musical, I am missing Sandra Oh’s last scene ever being filmed at Grey’s Anatomy. If I am succeeding at one, I am inevitably failing at the other. That is the trade off. That is the Faustian bargain one makes with the devil that comes with being a powerful working woman who is also a powerful mother. You never feel a hundred percent OK; you never get your sea legs; you are always a little nauseous. Something is always lost. Something is always missing.

And yet. I want my daughters to see me and know me as a woman who works. I want that example set for them. I like how proud they are when they come to my offices and know that they come to Shondaland. There is a land and it is named after their mother. In their world, mothers run companies. In their world, mothers own Thursday nights. In their world, mothers work. And I am a better mother for it. The woman I am because I get to run Shondaland, because I get write all day, because I get to spend my days making things up, that woman is a better person—and a better mother. Because that woman is happy. That woman is fulfilled. That woman is whole. I wouldn’t want them to know the me who didn’t get to do this all day long. I wouldn’t want them to know the me who wasn’t doing.”

That is how I balance my work-life and my personal-life. I understand that there are days where Aria is going to watch 3 hours of Peppa Pig in a row so I can get my e-mails created, edit my YouTube videos and learn about how to be a better ND and a better business owner.

I have my life set up in such a way that I don’t need to apologize for wanting to get what I want out of MY life. Because I am still living MY life, I just so happen to be a mother and a wife, and proud to be!

I promised myself a very long time ago that I would not fall into a title of “wife”, “mother”, “maid”, “cook”, “grocery shopper.” That I will share my roles equally with my family and make sure that I prioritize MY time when I need to. And there are times boy where I can feel myself slipping. Where I can feel myself falling into “maid/mother” role and I start to become a version of myself that I do not want to be. I start to feel resentful. I have become so in-tuned to that feeling that I can catch myself within a few days and have a calm, gentle but firm talk with my husband about stepping up and being an EQUAL parent.

I have heard so many women in this profession ask questions just like this one,

“Would anyone be willing to share how they block their weekly schedules to accommodate seeing patients, research, CE/professional development, practice management/building, family time, personal time/fitness, meal planning etc. Right now life feels far more chaotic than I think it should. I have a 3yo now and would love to have another in the next couple years but it’s hard to even entertain that possibly with all the business ambitions I have as well. I just try to fit in business and patient research into random times during my week and I find I’m never fully present as an entrepreneur or as a mother. I’m sure there’s a easier way to make this work.”

Here’s how I responded: “The most important thing that I did was make sure that when I’m at work, I work. I am completely focused, because when I get home everyone wants a piece of “mom.” I also am never afraid to ask for time away from my family. If I need to get away and get work done, or stay later and get work done, then I ask for it and almost always get it.”

The take home statement from that is… I ASKED FOR IT. How many patients have you seen that are struggling to keep it all together and one of your solutions to them was, “Well, have you asked your kids to put away their clothes or do the laundry? Have you asked your husband if he can take the kids to soccer practice and make dinner before hand?”

As women, we are commonly afraid to talk to our spouses about what our true desires are. What we still want out of our lives as well as be a great mom. We are afraid to ask for help because as women, we were raised to believe that it’s our “duty” to take care of everyone before ourselves.

To that I say, cut that shit out! I am NOT a born mother. I love Aria more than anything and I am so pumped to meet this new little girl in a few weeks. What I love even more than that, is exactly what Shonda said in her speech… I can’t wait for them to see their mom in action – kicking ass and taking names in the in-office and online space. I can’t wait to show them what a strong, independent woman looks like but most importantly what hard work looks like and what it looks like to not give up on your goals/dreams/aspirations just because you have a family.

So to all of those women in our field, married or not, mothers or not, I really hope that this episode gave you a little more strength to keep doing you. Keep being that badass mamma jamma that you are and don’t like old evolutionary thoughts start to invade your head.

Build a business that allows you more time at home, but do NOT stop building that business.

Understand that amount of work and effort it takes to build a 7-figure practice, and consider that maybe taking home $50K every year, if it allows you to sleep 8-9 hours per night, take weekends off and enjoy being a health-preneur and a parent, is just fine.

We often get so caught up in the hustle, in the race, in the money, that we forget what we really want out of our lives. So to you, I encourage you to write down 3 hard limits. 3 things that you do not want to give up on the road to your success and DO NOT waiver.

The more successful you are in business, the less successful you are as a mother, and vice versa… and that’s ok. That’s why I have created this podcast, and the free webinars that I host every couple of weeks, and the MAXIMize Your Clinic course.

My goal for you is to make your life as an ND a little less time consuming. A little less stressful and a LOT more fulfilling.

If you’re not already a part of the newsletter to find out about these resources that I just discussed, I strongly encourage you to go to www.MAXIMizedBusiness.ca/resources and sign up!

Let me take care of you while you take care of everyone and everything else in your life!

So with that, I’m signing off on this episode, and I strongly encourage you to share this one with anyone you know struggling with #momguilt, #dadguilt or #worklifebalance.

This is Andrea Maxim, and I’m out.

Today we’re focusing on what makes someone a good business owner and how to grow your practice. Have you ever wondered why some things come so easily to you, and you’re just so good at those things but then other times you’re just completely avoiding certain things because you hate doing them, you don’t know how to do them, or they’re just not enjoyable?

We have to start acknowledging those things because if you want to start incorporating other people into your business, whether it be an office manager or receptionist, or other associates, etc.  you want to be attracting the people that are going to help you grow not help you fail.

You’re not good at everything.

It’s important for you to recognize this now so you don’t waste time, money, and resources trying to do things that you’re not good at/don’t know how to do/don’t like trying to do. Find people whose strengths are your weaknesses, whatever they are to help you grow your practice.

Do you know what your strengths are when it comes to your business?

 

Write these down:

  1. What are you good at?
  2. What impresses others about you?
  3. What do you love to do?/What are your passions?
  4. What comes naturally to you that other people stumble on?
  5. What works really well within your clinic?

By answering these questions, you will be able to support those things you love/your passions/what you’re good at.

 

This comes full circle to the Myer Briggs Test…

This test is a free personality test that helps you identify why you are the way you are. By taking this test you’ll be able to determine your strengths, what your tendencies are, and how you live your life. Today I’m going over my results and sharing them with you.

Take the Myer Briggs Test!

We will then discuss how you can use your results from the test and apply them to your business so you can align yourself with people who compliment you.

Here’s Ashley’s Question: “Since many NDs are associates in other clinics, it might be interesting to hear about how to develop one’s own brand as an individual within an established clinic. Most NDs seem to have their own websites, but should we also have our own cards, branding, banners for tradeshows, merchandise, brochures, etc. Does it become confusing for patients? I’m at two clinics so it might actually bring clarity and consistency.”

This is something that I see time and time again troubling new associates – should I blend in with the clinic and let them brand me or should I brand myself?

My answer – Always Create a Back Up Plan, in other words, Always Brand Yourself.

I am a clinic owner and an associate, and even within my own clinic – which has it’s own logo and name, I still brand myself, my face, and my personal name on anything.  To me a clinic is simply the building to which you offer your services. An address.

More likely than not, when patients want to refer you, they will remember your name first and the clinic name second.  When people talk about you, you want them to use your personal identity, not “the naturopath at “so and so clinic” helped me with my digestion.  If there are multiple NDs in one space, how will that new patient find you if you brand yourself as just one of the associates at the clinic?

This also includes giving people direct access to YOU.  When I try to reach out to other companies, or even other NDs personally, and I have to go through the generic clinic website, the first thought that runs through my head is – who’s actually going to read this? When? Will it just get lost in the shuffle of all the other e-mails?

Giving people that personal touch, your personal e-mail or a direct link to you somehow (you could even use social media handles) is also a good idea as the patients know they are connecting directly to you to book in.

Also, with your personal website, you can grow yourself faster as an authority than you could ever do with the clinic website.  Your About Me page needs to include every single talk, seminar, blog post, YouTube video you’ve ever done.  As patients see that, they will be impressed with how much work you’ve done and will feel more comfortable putting their health into YOUR hands, not just the clinic’s.

 

Marketing Materials

The other most important thing is that you might not be at that space 3, 5, 10 years from now.  It’s common for NDs to move at least 2 to 3 times throughout the lifespan of their career and if you don’t have consistent branding to move with you, you will constantly be starting from scratch.

At every clinic I joined, even if they offered me free business cards or brochures, I always designed and purchased my own where I brand myself.  One with MY services, with MY picture and MY personal contact information – with of course the clinic name and address.

If a clinic owner has an issue with this, let them use their marketing material in the clinic, but when you’re networking, doing talks, giving out your materials to your patients, use your own.  If they still have an issue, remind them why you’re there.  You’re at their clinic to bring in money.  You won’t be able to do it that well if you blend into their marketing campaigns.

One of my MAXIMize Your Clinic VIPs just got fired from her clinic because she was bringing in too many of her own patients and doing too much of her own branding!  That’s the most ludicrous story I have ever heard! Luckily, at the exact same time, the clinic she’s been wanting to join just opened a possible position for her – talk about the universe looking out for you!

If the clinic owner wants to be possessive, then that may be a red flag for a healthy working relationship down the road.

 

Growing your Business

Patients always choose the PERSON they relate to. That’s how to attract them. That’s how to establish the therapeutic relationship and most importantly, that’s how to create word-of-mouth referrals.

Building a personal brand will always be easier and faster especially if you want to start doing more speaking engagements, podcast interviews, online summits and guest blogging.

As a personal brand, it also allows you to speak directly to your Ideal Patient Audience. The exact patient you want to attract. Be it fertility for women ages 20-35yo, PCOS women wanting to get pregnant, celiac patients ages 10-40yo. You name it.

You know that there’s patients that you’re seeing in office that you really resonate with. You get amazing results with. The research into their case inspires you. Those are your Ideal Patients and you need to make your marketing efforts speak to THEM. If you let the clinic run all the social media and branding, you’re going to lose your voice and therefore lose a lot of potential patients.

NURTURING is also a huge part of the game of naturopathic medicine.

As a clinic, if they send out newsletters it may be 1-2 times per month, and it’s boringly promoting the clinic’s services with maybe a quick article or two on healthy living.

Do not let the clinic nurture your patients! You need to be sending them personal information from YOU about your teachings, your learning, from your brand.  You should be speaking to your patients with great free information weekly. And, as you do more guest speaking, you collect those leads and nurture them to become new patients.

The clinic will do a REALLY REALLY bad job of nurturing your ideal patients because it’s a business of associates, not centered around you.

Blending the Two

There is certainly a way you can blend the two if you wish.

Ask the clinic owners if you can have access to their website for blogging and social media for posting.  Literally copy and paste your personal material and repost it again onto the clinic site.  There’s never anything wrong with duplicating your material online.

You may want to slightly reformat the copy as the clinic versus as your personal self, but never feel that you can’t put the same information out there, just in a slightly different format.

This is a special episode because today’s guest is a naturopath who is so passionate naturopathic medicine and about our community as ND’s as well as giving back to communities that need our help, but can’t necessarily afford us.

In today’s podcast, I suggest that you listen to the very end because there is a special program

that this particular ND has created that not only helps the naturopathic community, but it also helps to serve his long term vision and mission to give back to the communities in his area, to do more community service, and to help create medical clinics where we can offer naturopathic medicine to these people that are in need of us.

Questions I Asked Ameet:

  1. How did you get so far into the field?
  2. How do you manage to get your patients to open up to you so you can get to a deeper level of treatment?
  3. What is it like coaching naturopathic students?
  4. How did you go about creating your CE Credit program?

What You’ll Learn From This Episode:

  • How to support a client in their suffering.
  • How to find comfort with their discomfort when seeing someone in a crisis.
  • What Ameet does when he has a shorter amount of time to go in depth with a client.
  • How Ameet got approved for your CE Credit Course through CONO.

How Video Marketing Can Change Your Biz: Interview with Julia Vorontsova – PPP: 033 https://www.maximizedbusiness.ca/video-can-change-biz-interview-julia-vorontsova-ppp-033/ Tue, 13 Sep 2016 05:07:03 +0000 http://www.maximizedbusiness.ca/?p=887 https://www.maximizedbusiness.ca/video-can-change-biz-interview-julia-vorontsova-ppp-033/#respond https://www.maximizedbusiness.ca/video-can-change-biz-interview-julia-vorontsova-ppp-033/feed/ 0 <p>  Today’s episode is focused on why you need to be using video marketing in your business.

Today’s episode is focused on why you need to be using video marketing in your business. This is actually where I started all of my marketing from which is the main reason I even found James Wedmore in the first place. I knew that YouTube was one of the best free sources for free advertising that we can monopolize on and now that YouTube and Google are linked, it also helps you rank better on Google. I created my naturopathic YouTube channel way back in 2011 and I try my best to put new videos out every week, but it’s amazing how far video can go.

The most important thing I have to stress here, is that it’s wonderful to get hundreds of likes or millions of views on a video, but if you’re not converting those people to actually schedule time with you in your office or you’re not creating a call to action then you’re missing out on a big opportunity here.

Julia is THE woman when it comes to online marketing using videos. She’s the founder of Kakadu Media and the SEO expert with over 7 years of experience in the industry. She currently teaches how to create effective marketing videos for a business and hosts regular workshops for business owners in the health and medical fields. She has learned video SEO from top industry experts in California and was awarded the Local Video Marketer Competition Prize as the most improved local video marketer in 2015. She has worked on projects in both China and Canada for small to medium sized businesses.

Questions I Asked Julia:

  1. Why do you think people aren’t taking advantage of online video marketing?
  2. What were your client’s businesses like before they started working with  you?
  3. How have your client’s businesses changed after working with you and creating videos?
  4. What is it about video that converts so well compared to a blog or social media post?
  5. Why don’t some people find success in video marketing?

What You’ll Learn From This Episode:

  • Why you should be making videos to advertise and support your business practice.
  • How to craft an intro video.
  • How to use keyword searching and SEO tools to drive traffic to your videos.
  • What a call to action is and why you need one in every video.
  • The benefits of using YouTube to share and market your videos.

You are going to love today’s podcast. Where I find practitioners are failing in their business is not creating signature programs. We hear about personal trainers having these big high end programs and nutritionists offer higher end programs. While there are limitations to what we as practitioners can do, but that doesn’t mean we can’t create a program and by doing that you’re going to find that your revenues will come much easier, your patients will be more satisfied, and you’ll be able to extend the lifetime properties of every patient that comes into your office. The one thing that new patients love more than anything else is some type of challenge, a cleanse, a detox, or some form of a in-office program so if you don’t have one in your office, you are leaving serious money on the table.

Dr. Summers Colon is going to break down exactly how she conducts her in-office program (that she also offers online), but because it is basically nutrition and consulting based, there is not a lot of medical intervention involved it is definitely something you could incorporate into your own practice (staying within naturopathic regulations of course). Once a patient gets to a certain point and you just want to keep them on a maintenance  program, offering some type of lifestyle challenge is going to be really valuable to bring patients into your practice, and then as up sells you can definitely offer supplements or add value so you can raise your prices.

Questions I Asked Michele:

  1. What was the transition from school to practitioner like for you?
  2. Is there a certain niche you market to?
  3. What type of patients are more drawn to your practice?
  4. Did it take you a long time to gain a referral system with other practitioners in your area?
  5. How do you capture those initial leads?

Things You’ll Learn From This Episode:

  • What led Michele to change her practice into what it is today.
  • Why Michele decided to focus on a specific market.
  • What benefits Michele has found in creating programs for her patients.
  • Why Michele believes it’s so valuable for people to have some type of program you can offer.

Today’s show is one of the most open and honest episodes I’ve had to date, with regards to investing in your business, investing in business coaching, leveraging your business, and why as a unit we should stop being so afraid to spread our message to a global community. Erica has been such a driving force all throughout her time in school: growing her practice quickly as soon as she graduated and now creating her online health coaching program. Erica is not afraid to tell it like it is and today she does just that. It’s so important for us to not feel stifled or suppressed by fear of losing our license or fear of doing something wrong and to understand the more you invest in your online business. It’s so powerful to create those bigger goals for your practice!

 Questions I Asked Erica:

  1.  What can someone in school do now to get their business growing?
  2. Should someone wait until they’re done with school to start working on their business?
  3. Did you decide to have a polarized voice on your blog?

Today I have Jim Palmer on the show and he is a big marketing guy in the states. He’s worked with naturopaths, chiropractors, other medical docs, and he’s worked with some of us in Canada as well. The biggest thing we’re talking about today is the importance of leveraging yourself on multiple social media and online platforms, as well as generating more revenue. Something you’ll frequently hear from graduates, doctors, etc. is “I would love to have more patients,” but more often than not, we don’t actually want more patients. We want each patient to be more valuable to the practice because  we don’t want to be giving up more of our time in order to make more revenue. So today we’ll go into greater detail about some ideas you can start implementing to create more income in your practice. Jim will also touch on how you can use different social media platforms and why you have to nurture your patients before they become paying customers.

Questions I Asked Jim:

  1. How did you get to where you are now?
  2. What types of income streams have you seen drive success in businesses?
  3. What were some revenue streams you have helped naturopaths create?
  4. How can health practitioners find those leads we want?

“Super successful people don’t look at the clock that often.” – Jim Palmer

What You’ll Learn From this Episode:

  • Why Jim decided he needed to create multiple streams of revenue.
  • How you can make residual income.
  • The difference in mindset in a small business owner and a entrepreneur.
  • The benefits of financial independence.

Today I’m talking to James Burgess who has been on the show twice already and both episodes were fantastic. In the first episode we talked about the basics of creating a business plan and why that big 50 page business plan can just be thrown out the window because it’s really not necessary to have to get the business you want. We also delved into the importance as well as the difference between a mission statement and a vision statement. In the second episode we talked about developing the action plan: literally getting your thoughts to paper and making those dreams happen. Today James is going to tell us how to sustain that business plan and here’s the best part: it only takes 10 minutes per week!

What I Asked James:

  1. How can we sustain this amazing business plan you helped us create?

“If you’re thinking about it, and you’re sitting on the fence, make like yoda: there is no try, you do or do not.” – James Burgess

Today I wanted to bring someone onto the show who was going to really help us understand the dialogue and how to communicate with patients. Dave Frees is the man! Dave is an attorney, author, entrepreneur and speaker who has lived a fascinating life that has taken him across the globe and has exposed him to master communicators, negotiators, and persuaders in hundreds of nations across many cultures. I know everyone listening will benefit from  what he’s going to talk about. The six word question alone literally changed the way I’m approaching my dialogue with patients when it comes to getting deeper to the root cause of what’s actually going on so I can help they get not only what they want, but what they really need. With that in mind, I created a really easy free worksheet for you to fill out that summarizes today’s call and that also gives you something so as you’re communicating and marketing to your target market and/or patients moving forward, you can use this worksheet every time you create a new marking piece or when you have a difficult patient. The link to that is below or go to www.maximizedbusiness.ca/persuasion

What I Asked Dave:

  1. Why do you think, especially as practitioners, we’re not very good at communicating?
  2. Can you share some techniques we can use to become better communicators?
  3.  How does a practitioner overcome the fear of saying no to a patient?

“If you believe you have what’s right for a patient, you’re doing them a disservice by not making the benefits clear to them.” – Dave Frees

Click to tweet

What You’ll Learn From This Episode:

  • Multiple techniques you can use how to communicate with patients.
  • The benefits you will see from properly listening and communicating with patients.
  • A few ways to negotiate correctly to see the results you want.
  • What the “6 word question” is.
  • How to guide your patient toward the solution they really need.

Today I wanted to address a really awesome listener question that I received that I think all of us at some point in time felt. Entrepreneur’s guilt. It honestly doesn’t matter where you are in your business, just starting out, been at it for a couple of years, been at it for a decade. One of the best and worst things about starting a practice is that it is constantly evolving.

You have to stay on the pulse of what people want. How they are finding you. How you should attract new patients. How to keep your current audience interested and you top of mind. How to give your current patients the best care. How to re-engage inactive patients, etc. This, however, also can be very overwhelming and, as Ashley puts it, creates as feeling of being scattered and confused. Today I’m hoping to address the issue of entrepreneurship guilt and hopefully take away a little bit of the internal pressures you may be feeling as you work away at your business.

Here’s Ashley’s question:

“Is entrepreneur’s guilt common? Sometimes I know I put off or hold back on doing things that could grow my business out of guilt that I’m not getting paid for this; I should be making money instead of testing out these ideas; I should get a job while this grows; there’s no guarantee spending time on x,y,z will bring anything so am I wasting my time?

This also leads into feeling scattered and confused about where time is best spent should I be re-learning homeopathy since I don’t use it a lot in practice, should I be researching my area of focus and taking new courses, should I be blogging and facebooking, should I be network marketing in my community, etc!  After having a positive day listening to your podcasts, I feel less of this, but I’m wondering if it’s a common feeling and how people are overcoming that.”

So let’s answer the question – what is entrepreneurship guilt? Well, I think that’s up to you. For some of you, like Ashley, its putting energy and resources into her business instead of working for a “normal job” with steady pay cheques. For some of you, this guilt may be choosing work over spending time with your family. For some of you it may be failure to follow your healthy morals (healthy eating, regular exercise, healthy sleep) in order to make your dream practice a reality. Maybe you feel guilty that you’re not working hard enough for your patients – not learning enough, not investing in enough conferences, not treating them fast enough. Whatever it is for you, it’s the guilt that’s making you feel this way. The mere idea of guilt means that you feel you should be making other choices. That the choices you are making are wrong. Let’s take a step back from the guilt and address that maybe your perception of entrepreneurship that is bring on these feelings? And more importantly, who is making you feel this way?

As an entrepreneur, already you’re going against the grain. People with regular jobs will never understand the demands of creating a new business from scratch. Yet, they are taking advantage of the hard work of the people that created their job security. It’s thinking like this that makes me so furious when I hear about employees going on strike or complaining about their job. In my mind, they should be happy they even have a job, steady income. If they don’t like it, they can start their own business and really see the value of a dollar earned.

That being said, there’s a lot of people that think entrepreneurship is “the dream scenario”. You work harder in the beginning to get the big houses and the dream vacations later on down the road. That is not going to be a reality for most of us. For most of us, we hopefully will not have to work as many hours and as diligently once the practice is established, but make no mistake, you still need to work hard, adapt, continue to learn and grow with your business if you want to stay successful. I will promise you now though, the harder you work at it now, without letting the guilt slow you down, the easier your life will be later on. Because let’s face it, we all want our practice to pay the bills, but if you want it to do more than just pay the bills, you have to earn it. That’s the struggle with entrepreneurship. But that struggle should not make you feel guilty.

The second statement in Ashley’s question is the most concerning for me, and the mindset that a lot of new NDs have “should I be making money instead of testing out these ideas; I should get a  job while this grows”. Have you ever watched Shark Tank or Dragon’s Den. What people always get the deal and what people don’t? The people that always get the deal are the one’s that are ALL IN. They execute with a no plan b approach. In Lori Kennedy’s interview, we talk a lot about the no plan b approach and how pivotal it is to your success as an ND-entrepreneur.

You can go here to listen.

Yes, starting a practice does take some capital to start, of course it does. But if you’re going to go for and make it happen, because you have no other option, then that capital will be paid back in no time. On average you’re looking for about $10K-$15K to start your business off comfortably. A business line of credit is the perfect way to get this capital going, and, it’s always nice to have a line of credit as a back up for any big future investments that may come your way.

I can’t tell you how many times I zero’d out my line of credit and then wracked it back up again because I wanted to write a book, I wanted to get a microscope for live blood, because I wanted to start a podcast. The key is, working super hard to make that investment work for you. Put that money to work right away. Do not hold back on TAKING ACTION, as I’m always saying.

Please please please, if you’re listening to this podcast and you’re thinking about getting a second or third job to make your practice work, DON’T. If you’re already working part-time as a healthfood store clerk, or a server at a restaurant, quit. So long as you have some steady income coming in, you will NEVER have the fear of the No Plan B approach motivating you towards nothing but success.

There’s also something else that’s really magical that happens when you do this. You start betting BIG on yourself. You start believing more in your potential. You start pushing yourself to be better. Then suddenly, you couldn’t imagine entrepreneurship not being what you do. The idea of working for someone else’s business, someone else’s hours, someone else’s rules becomes the most repulsive thing to you because you are grabbing life by the balls, you are seizing every opportunity, and you’re doing it without a safety net. You are not ALL IN.

Because Ashley is 100% right – there are no guarantees. Tony Robbins has a great explanation about the Six Human Needs: First on the list, “Certainty: the assurance that you can avoid pain and gain pleasure.” He goes on to say that Certainty isn’t a feeling, it’s a habit. You need to start focusing on what you can control and what you want to make happen. Tell me this, when a patient walks into your office do you ever tell them, with absolute 100% certainty that you can cure them of their ailments, No. That would be completely unjustified and quite frankly a complete false advertisement of your abilities. Instead, you ask them to trust you that you will make them better, and little by little get them closer and closer to long-term success.

It is hypocritical that you would ask this of your patients but not of yourself and you capabilities as a business owner. As an entrepreneur. This is another comment from Tony that I love: “Just when it seems impossible, when it seems like nothing is going to work, you’re usually just a few millimeters away from making it happen.” What If your guaranteed success in this industry is only a small adjustment away? Just one small actions step? Just one phone call with a business coach? Just one coffee with an ND you admire. The more you walk, talk and carry yourself like a shining success, that more success you will see!

So again, if society or boyfriends or girlfriends or family members are bringing on these feelings of guilt, you have to put your ear plugs in and keep going. You’re feeling like you’re not being a good partner… You’re feeling like you’re being a good enough parent. If you take time away from the business you feel guilty that you’re not working hard enough. There is no such thing as work-life balance, but what there is, is focus, drive and determination AND boundary setting. When I’m focused on work, I’m focused. Even if it means I have my laptop in bed with me as my husband and I watch Suits or Game of Thrones, I will multitask.

If I’m out with my family, I am 100% focused on them. Engaged in the family memories and the laughter. And when I’m tired, I sleep. I promised myself after CCNM that I would never sacrifice sleep again to achieve my goals. I rarely have a night where I don’t get 8-9 hours of sleep. That’s what allows me to hit Beast Mode during the day and make shit happen.

So when it comes to “best time spent” learning this modality, or doing this social media campaign, there is no right answer. I always recommend to do what you know your ideal patients want you to do and nothing more. If your ideal patients hate acupuncture and love botanicals, do NOT take a course on acupuncture for X conditions. If they want more support on PMS and you invest in an expensive convention on cancer therapy, then your personal wants and your business needs are NOT in alignment.

Let’s also face facts. Not everyone is the entrepreneurial type. As Mark Cuban says, there’s entrepreneurs and “want”-repreneurs. The entrepreneur world is not for everyone. The financial and relationship stressors happen. The strategizing and the focus needed is insane sometimes. The concept of a successful, thriving, fully- booked practice is a wonderful aspiration, but for many it remains a wonderful idea, without taking any action towards pursuing it.

An entrepreur is always taking action on a leap of faith. They do what they say they’re going to do. They are willing to sacrifice time doing the “fun stuff on weekend” and having money in the bank initially to get their projects done so the business can start growing. Wantrepreners talk a big talk, but never accomplish what they say they “want” to do. Investing time and money is a major struggle for an wantrepreneur because they don’t want to deal with any risks. Worry and Fear controls them. To an entrepreneur, this type of action is second nature as we mark our successes by accomplishment and profits.

The final statement that I want to make on this podcast is that a lot of the fear in Ashley’s question is coming back to that good old green elephant in the room. Money. The lack of guarantee, the need to have a second “regular” job, the fear of wasting time due to lack of profits. I will not beat around the bush and as I’ve already mentioned, you need money to start your practice. You spend money to make money, as they say. BUT if you’re mindset is focused on the money. If it’s focused on having that multi-million dollar clinic one day. Is focused on striking it rich with every patient. Then I suggest you either give your head a shake or get out now while you can.

Every successful practice owner will tell you that their main focus is bring the best, quality care to their patients and the profits that ensue are just icing on the cake. They will continue to re-invest their money into their clinic, to expand, to make a new i.v. suite, to create a therapeutic space, to offer new services and techniques, without even blinking an eye. They will take a nail from one hole and put it into another. Their motivation is their clinic community, not their bottom line. Do not get so focused on the bank account, which I know for some of you is a tremendous stressor, but you can’t let that cloud your vision for clinical and therapeutic success.

Instead, make the goal about living the dream and feeling rich and fulfilled in all aspects of your life. If you are listening to this and you’re feeling inspired to take a new course, to turn that extra millimeter to the left or to the right. To take on that No Plan B approach, but want a little extra guidance, do not hesitate to contact me on the website, and/or book in with me a 30min strategy call.

I also wanted to let all new grads or anyone who’s struggling to make their practice work for them, that I am currently in the pre-launch of my step-by- step MAXIMize Your Clinic online course that will help you create that strong foundation, and take away a lot of the worries and the stresses of what to do next, what to do when, etc. If that course sounds perfect for you, please sign up to my Sexy MAXIMizers Facebook group by going to the website and signing up with the pop-up.

It’s Andrea Maxim here and I’m going to discuss today how my $1000 launch cost me $0 to create!

Back in February James Wedmore sent an email to his list (which I’m on) and this email said one thing: “I want to mentor you for free.”

Being mentored by James who has made 7 figures from online courses and numerous other amazing things caught my attention, but there was one catch… you had to submit a YouTube video explaining who you were, why you wanted to be mentored by him and why you wanted to join his group.

I didn’t hesitate, I knew I had to do this so I set up my laptop, hit record and submitted it on YouTube.

After he told us he got over 350 responses, I didn’t think I would really get into the group, but to my surprise I got an email from him saying I got into the program!

This story relates to what I’m going to talk about today, I’m going to talking about my first online launch story and the value of how business coaching got me there.

 

Today I’m going to walk you through the exact steps so that you too can create an online launch for your email list, for your  current patients, and hopefully excite some of your inactive patients to get them excited about a new program your offering at your practice.

I’m Andrea Maxim, and in this episode I am going to lay out everything you need to know about successfully setting goals in order to make this year your best year yet!

Listen to this podcast to learn how to PROPERLY write your goals down, how to execute them with LAZER focus, how to rethink your avatar to gain more clients and how to avoid the time suckers that will stop you from thriving!

Things you should look at and identify BEFORE you set your goals:

  1. What was my revenue for the last 12 months?
  2. What was my profit for the last 12 months?
  3. How many patients do I have?
  4. How many email subscribers do I have on my list?  Or how many patients do I regularly email?
  5. How many Facebook likes does my page have?  Followers on YouTube, Twitter, etc.?

Once you’ve identified these numbers, choose at least 3 and set a small goal of how you can increase these numbers over the next week, 6 weeks, 12 weeks.

The barrier standing between you and the life you are capable of living is a lack of consistent execution.  – Brian Moran, The 12 Week Year

Click to tweet

Questions to consider BEFORE you set your goals:

  1. What is your vision for this year?
  2. What is it that is driving you towards being successful in your business?
  3. Are you spending your time wisely?
  4. How do you want to feel at the end of this year?
  5. What are you willing to give up in order to get everything you want this year?

When setting a goal, you will have more success if you write it down and make it a short-term goal with a maximum of 90 days – Dr. Andrea Maxim, ND

Click to tweet

Write down your goals using the SMART technique:

  • S – specific
  • M – measurable
  • A – attainable
  • R – relevant
  • T – timely

 

Do you want help with goal-setting or need further direction?

I’m Andrea Maxim, and even though my maternity leave was only 5 weeks, it gave me a chance to sit quietly and refocus on how I wanted to move forward in my new life as not only a business owner, practitioner and wife – but now a mother too!

Here’s the truth, while having babies is an incredible adjustment and yes they are little time suckers, having Aria actually turned me into a better business owner. Taking my, oh-so-short-lived, maternity leave helped me restructure and reorganize how I wanted to run my practice. The one invaluable thing we have is TIME and so often we are not organizing it properly so we can be more effective at work and then more effective at home. If you need to learn to schedule your time better, then this is the podcast for you!

Here’s some ways I recommend you get started on:

MAXIMizing your TIME:

  1. Blocking your time in such a way that you allot a certain block of time for each ‘activity’ or ‘event’ that you need to accomplish.
  2. Truncate your schedule to be more efficient – maybe only see patients for 5 hrs/day instead of 8.  Schedule the extra time to do other things to grow your business.
  3. Understand your own natural clock of when you are the most creative, have the most energy, and when you may need breaks.  Adjust your schedule to work within your natural flow.
  4. Value your time by making sure you charge for your services accordingly – educate your patients on the value of spending money on their health.
  5. Focus your time on getting the biggest bang for your buck – no matter what you are investing your time in.

 

Here is an example of how I set up my schedule:

Andrea-Maxim-schedule

 

MAXIMizing your CONSISTENCY:

  1. Choose the most effective ways to reach out to your current patients – and do it on a consistent basis.
  2. Create content or share content with your list – and do it on a consistent basis.
  3. Do webinars (or whatever other modes you enjoy of sharing your expertise) – and do it on a consistent basis.
  4. When people get used to expecting to see you show up in a certain way they will come to accept, engage and trust you and that leads to BUYING from you.

I’m Andrea Maxim and I’m going to fully discuss The Oz Effect that many of us are under.

What is success?  What I mean by this is that many people we think are “successful” in business, are only showing us what they want us to see, but what’s behind the curtain can be completely different. If I can be honest with you, this podcast was one of my favorites to produce.

I wanted to explore some of the realities of what’s really going on with some business leaders in my industry.

Questions I asked some colleagues:

  1. Do you find it profitable to have so many people working under you?
  2. Have you been able to pay off your debts?
  3. How are you able to balance your clinic and the other ventures you take on?

Put your nose to the ground, hustle, take action!

Take at least one step of action each day, no matter how small, to grow your business.

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 Zuckerburg

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…
