In this episode of The Profitable Practice Podcast, I share my my thoughts on how administrative work wastes your time and cripples your practice growth.
As a business owner, you have to make your time count – don’t waste it on tasks that others can be trained to do.
We were short on reception staff one morning, and handled it as best we could… it was a busy and fast morning to be sure. It certainly made me grateful for all that my office manager does for me.
That said, there were some powerful lessons learned.
In my first teachable moment with my new associate, I was so happy to drive home the idea that her (highly trained) time is the most valuable asset she has to offer.
“If you ever think you can’t afford to hire help? Do the math!”, I said.
In this episode, I do just that and share this important lesson for any practitioner looking to grow their practice and ultimately, build their whole clinic.
In This Episode:
[0:50] My first teachable moment with my new associate – the value of not wasting your time on $15/hr admin work.
[4:45] Do the math: examples of smarter, revenue generating things that you SHOULD be doing with your time.
[5:56] Leveraging staff for better productivity in your business.
“You are a PRACTITIONER. You went to school for 4+ years… you spent SIX FIGURES on your education! You should NOT be doing grunt work.”
— Andrea Maxim, ND & Business Coach

- What tasks have you trained your reception to handle? Is there more you could pass along?
