For most practice owners it can be quite a challenge to fit everything in – between keeping up to date with your clients and managing the daily admin and requirements of the practice, there just aren’t enough hours in the day! Then add to that the pressure to stay abreast of new technology, and learning better ways of doing things in order to ensure that your practice stays on top of its game, and it’s no wonder that practice owners feel overwhelmed!
But to keep growing means learning from others who are succeeding, because for your business to improve you need to be trying out new ideas. One way to do this is through listening to podcasts. It’s an easy way to access industry-leading information at no cost. And it’s convenient too. There’s no need to read long articles or get in a business consultant. A practice-focused podcast fits in with your schedule, whether you choose to listen to it on your commute to and from work, on your lunch break, or while taking a walk.
