Hiring Your First Associate To Help You With Patients [Ep. #118]
In this episode of The Profitable Practice Podcast, I talk about my experience hiring my first clinical associate and why I wish I had done it much sooner.
I am not a unicorn… another practitioner could help me serve my patients better.
The first thing you think is, “I need help.”
The second thing you think is, “but I can’t afford it.”
It’s baloney and frankly just destructive self-talk.
Tune in to hear about my experience hiring my first ND associate – on a salary!
In This Episode:
[1:02] How a time study helped me realize I’m not a unicorn and can be replaced. How I hired my first clinical associate (Meaghan!) to free myself up from some 1:1 patient consulting hours.
[3:13] Additional things besides patient visits I have Meaghan do.
[5:51] Inspiration for hiring help
[6:20] HEADS UP – blurred lines between independent contractors and employees can be incredibly costly.
[7:20] Possible scenarios for hiring your first clinical employees.
“It is 100% possible for you to remove yourself from the business, allow other people to come in and take over some of the hours or patients, or days in your clinic, and you can still make a decent amount of revenue doing that.”
— Andrea Maxim, ND & Business Coach
