As a new year starts, I want to share what happened in the past 365 days and how I have decided to adjust my company.
The StrengthsFinder assessment is one of the most useful tools I have ever found.

Many of my clients are independent healthcare practice owners who have trouble growing their business in a healthy way. I find that practitioners often struggle to attract patients who fit their philosophy and goals. Not every customer is Ideal; some potential customers can actually take value away from your business.
The best way to attract the right customers—those who are interested in your services and eager to pay for the value you provide—is to focus on a Niche area. This is a specific set of services or products that meets the needs of your Ideal Customers and solves their unique problems.

“The new year can’t come soon enough.”
Even you were not able to meet your strategic business objectives this year, I encourage you to consider the positives that happened, rather than speeding past it.
In the 7th installment in my #MinimalistManager Challenge, I get rid of all electronics for 24 hours.
