Episode 008 – Fear: Use It To Drive You

Do You Ever Feel Fear While Growing Your Practice?

It’s totally understandable if you feel fear as you’re growing your practice. After all, running your own business can be super scary and lonely.

The thing that separates those that succeed from those that fail is that the successes use their fear as motivation. The failures get consumed by the fear and it pulls them down.

However, it’s easier than you might think to turn things around.

Tune in to this week’s episode to find out exactly how to turn that fear into the rocket fuel you need to propel you forward.

Episode 007 – RECIPES! Why Your World Class Business Needs Them

Do You Have Recipes In Your Business?

In today’s episode, we’re going to be discussing one of the most crucial parts of growing a successful practice: Recipes.

Think about this… If you were going to make a cake, and you wanted to ensure that your team could make exactly the same delicious cake, you’d have to write down the recipe.

The recipe isn’t just the ingredients. It’s the entire process of taking those ingredients and melding them together to create a finished product again and again, no matter who is making it.

That’s how you need to think of everything in your practice: If it has to be repeated, and it impacts your business in any way, then it must have its own recipe.

So, tune in to today’s podcast and let’s get started creating your recipe.

Episode 006 – How To Ensure Your Health Class Is Empty

Want To Make Your Health Class A Total Failure?

Didn’t think so… You want your health class or event to be a raging success.

But working out why your class is going to fail is actually an incredible helpful exercise for you to do. You see, working out why it’s going to fail can help you to be aware of the dangers.

It’s a little bit like doing a SWOT analysis (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats) and see which weaknesses are going to stop you from being a success.

Tune in to this episode as I expand on exactly how to use this technique to make your health class a success.

The 3 Step Process To Find Balance In Your Life As A Successful Woman In Business

When you’re trying to be a successful woman in business, wearing multiple hats comes with the territory. On the business side of things, you may have to wear your marketing hat, your HR hat, your finance hat, and whatever else the business demands of you.

It doesn’t end there, however. When you go home, you may have to start the process all over again. You may have to deal with kids, ensure the refrigerator is adequately stocked, make sure the household is taken care of, etc. In the end, you’re trying your best to balance everything out.

During this process, there’s always the fear you’re going to drop the ball. You’re trying to make sure you’re the best business woman you can be, but you’re also trying to make sure everything is together with your home life as well.

To help you achieve balance in your life as a woman in business, I want to discuss three top strategies that I teach all of my female business clients.

1) Design a timetable for yourself

The first thing you need to do is design a timetable to structure your day. When are you in your business? When are you working on your business? When aren’t you in your business at all?

As you run your business, you’ll often find yourself in situations where your work life will intersect with your home life, such as fielding calls from employees or patients while you’re at home with your kids. That’s excellent multitasking, but that’s also a great way to burn yourself out.

Designing a timetable will help you establish boundaries between home and work life. When you’re at work you can deal with your associates, clients and everything else your business demands of you. However, when you’re at home, all the work hats come off, and the home hat goes on. Whether that entails spending time with your kids, ensuring your home is in working order or ensuring you have time to spend with your spouse, understand that when you’re at home, you should save all work-related matters for the following workday.

2) Find your ideal clients

Are you working with clients who respect your home and work boundaries? In one of my past businesses, I worked as a chiropractor. I loved the job, but one of the challenges I had to deal with was designing the life I wanted to live. Unfortunately, I designed my life to work around the schedules of my patients.

I had a patient named Mrs Jones who would always come in to see me, but she’d only see me at 8 A.M. That was fine at first, but eventually I had children and my mornings were no longer a good time for me to meet with Mrs Jones due to the demands of motherhood. I was absolutely terrified to tell her that I needed to change our meet time because I thought for sure she was going to hate me, but I mustered up my courage and informed her we had to switch around our schedule.

The point is we need to schedule our lives so that it suits us and our families. You should spend time searching for those ideal clients that want to meet at times that suit both your schedule and theirs. That way you can maintain a better balance between your home life and your work life.

3) Assemble a power team

The third and final tip I have for you is to assemble a power team. If you’re one of those women who think they can do it all (like Wonder Woman) you need to step back and reevaluate why you’re working so hard. If you want to be a successful woman in business you need to stop wearing so many hats (finances, HR, etc.) and delegate tasks to a group of people who are experts at what they do. You’ll be much happier and far more effective if you have a capable team under you who know exactly what they’re doing.  

Conclusion

As you move towards becoming a successful woman in business, I want you to practice these three strategies. I used to think that I could do it all by myself — that I had to do it all myself — but now I realise that way of thinking is wrong. Yes, we might organise it, but we can’t do it all alone. Design a timetable for your life, find those ideal clients and build a power team. You’ll love yourself for it, and it will help you find a balance in your life as a successful businesswoman.

Episode 004 – All Great Teams Have Strategy Days

Ready For Your Strategy Day?

If you’re not holding Strategy Days with your team, then you’re massively missing out on something that can help you to grow your practice.

Not only will you grow your practice faster, but you’ll also grow it ‘better’. By ‘better’, we mean that you’ll have a team that will know exactly what to do and how to do it, to help you to grow.

They’ll also be ‘bought in’ to the business and vision you have. That’s invaluable.

In this episode, Jo explains why and how to implement strategy days in your practice.

Episode 003 – You Can’t Wear All The ‘Hats’ And Still Create A World-Class Business

Create A World-Class Business The Right Way

If you want to create a world-class business, then it’s important that it doesn’t burn you out.

You see, most business and/or practice owners are struggling.

They’re struggling because they’re trying to do everything in their business, also known as ‘wearing all the hats’.

You’re running your marketing to get new patients, doing events or networking, making sure your staff have everything they need and treating patients…

And that’s just for starters.

As a result of doing all that, you can’t possibly create a world-class business. You don’t have time!

It’s also incredibly tiring to wear all the hats in your business. That fatigue prevents you from being as creative as you need to be to work ‘on’ your business (instead of ‘in’ it).

So in today’s episode, I’ll explain exactly what you need to do to build a world-class business without the burnout!

Episode 002 – How To Overcome Burnout

Feeling Like You’re Working Too Hard?

There’s a good chance that, if you’re a practice owner, you’ve either felt burned out in the past, or you’re feeling that way right now.

If you’re not, then we’re sorry to break it to you, but burn-out is probably in the post!

It happens when you try to do too much in your business, starting early and finishing late, convincing yourself that things will get better soon.

The problem is that you’re reaching breaking point.

You’re sacrificing your health and wellbeing for the business. There’s only so long that you can do that before you do yourself (and your business) some serious harm.

In today’s episode, we’ll explain how you can overcome burn out and run your business, instead of your business running you.
