5 Things You Should NOT Be Doing to Become a Private Practice Owner

Welcome back to another episode of Patients On Demand! Today, I’m tackling a topic that is pretty difficult for a lot of entrepreneurs. As new business owners, we’re stuck in the position of doing everything to get the business up and running smoothly. In a sense, it’s totally a superpower. But it can also hold us back from growing and scaling our business. The truth is, to build, a business owner must figure out what they shouldn’t be doing. It might seem counterintuitive at first, but hear me out!

Recently, my husband and I did something pretty crazy. We bought and sold a house in just twelve days. It was a complete spur of the moment opportunity, and we decided to jump on it. After reflecting on the experience, we both agreed it was the hardest we’ve EVER worked. Yes, even harder than spending all those nights as an entrepreneur burning the midnight oil. It turns out that getting a house ready for sale AND under a quickly-approaching time constraint worked us to our limitations.

But it turned out to be an incredible learning experience for me. I learned the vital lesson of outsourcing. All I wanted to do during the move were tasks like changing the light bulb covers. The thought of organizing and packing up my office was way less appealing. But the truth was, only I could do that task. Anyone could paint a cabinet and change a bulb cover.

If we wanted to get everything done in time, I would have to get comfortable delegating tasks. The same goes for your business. As a private practice owner, you’re not going to be able to juggle seeing patients and being a fully functional CEO. They are two separate positions. You’re going to have to choose.

It’s not easy, but if you’re committed to growing your business, you will have to decide the things you will and won’t do. Today, we’re discussing five things you should not be doing if you’re dedicated to becoming a private practice owner.
